  • an error listening to a socket

    so I was going to fire up the SF Tac-mod to test it out a bit but I cant log in

    it gives me an error like "there was an error listening to a socket" or something like that, so I tried a few more times, same thing

    si I loaded up vanilla Bf2, same thing

    heh, all this trouble and I was only going to test out the changes for a few minutes

    you know I havnt played since I patched the game but I had a very distinct feeling that I wasnt going to able to get on.....

    you know its sad that these patches are basically a hit or miss deal and if you were happen to get the bad one they make you uninstall everything just for one god damn patch...

    It's a shame it doesn't provide a detailed error, it makes debugging difficult. I would just reinstall.

      Make sure your firewall isn't rejecting the new BF2.exe file silently.

        I bet thats it, but im not getting a popup or anything from my firewall software, ill check it out

        edit: I dont think its blocking anything, though im not entirely sure how to check

              The firewall has to let BF2 act as a server, btw. Just another weird thing about it.
