I can't join any of the public servers because it freezes when it says 'activating video and audio' but i can still hear the music. I can go into other servers just fine but sometimes they just suck. The xgames servers in beta demo are really good, but they are only in beta demo, so i find myself being unable to play online in retail Mad.

Yea, I'm working on this, I'm a bit confused right now since all my dedicated servers here work fine. I'll get something working as soon as possible though, sorry for the inconvenience.

You could make your own server, when I make one, it gets full with 4 people in a few minutes.

ok here is how it works. Due to the loading order if there is not a player in the srver before you join, you will not load. This does not mean dedicated servers dont work, they do, it just takes adding an ai bot before anyone can join. The players who attempt to join the server are stopped at the activating video and audio screen, after all the names are loaded. As time goes by if you stay in the game, you will se people join, but still neither you or they will load. This is why I have taken to hosting servers, which is another post in its own. I have confirmed this with oak, since we were talking in msn. Before, during and after trying to join.

the server needs a player in it, then the loading order works, and the game can get past the avtivating audio and video screen.

that seems to make complete sense as I was able to join a server on my first try. The only player in it was Rob heh. He asked me if I am able to join without problems, but unknowningly I simple said 'yes its fine'
