View Full Version : TO MapVote100 problem

29th Jul 2001, 04:36 PM
I am having problems connecting to servers using TO MapVote100.
I have tried the "Kill Your Co-Workers" server and others with the same problem.

Here is a description:

1. Choose server and double-click to connect
2. Download or load map.
3. Get screen that says "precaching".
4. Goes next to screen that says "connecting" and this screen stays for 20 secs. or longer.
5. next is it looks like it connected for less than a second and then I get "Connection failed" message. I hit 'ESC' and get the screen with the mapvote window. (Bind key window is already gone or did not load)

Looks as if the mapvote is not showing up as the first window and then times out.

I have deleted all cache files and downloaded again from the game server with no luck. I have deleted all versions of CSHP and auto-aim is turned off.

UT patch 436 with TO 2.0 mod installed. Previously using TO 1.6.

Any thoughts?

Are you sure the server is not full at the times you tried ?

"Kill your coworker" is almost always full, I can't get in ususally.

What can happen is that while you are downloading the map
someone else jumps in ahead of you and fills the server.
That is what it sounds like.

This is not the case.I can connect to any server not running TO Mapvote100. I have the problem with any server using TO Mapvote100.

Yes, I have the exact same problem. Ever since camel toe has installed the Mapvote 100 I have been getting booted on connect. I even re-intalled my UT and my TO, yet nontheless, I still cannot enter the server. Any help would be greatly appreaciated.

Ok, I'll look into it but I'm going to need some help since
I can not reproduce the problem.

Everyone who is having this problem please send me your
log file after the unsuccessfull connection. (BDB@planetunreal.com)

Questions :
1. What operating system you are using. (Win98,Linux,Mac) ?

2. Does this happen on all MapVote server ALL of the time
or just occationally ?

3. Try this: Start TO and Click "Multiplayer" - "Find Multiplayer Game"
Does the web page comes up in the News browser.

4. What kind of internet connection do you have (Cable,DSL, 56K modem) ?

5. Can you connect to a regular/plain UT MapVote server ?
Like a CTF server ?

6. Have you ever been able to connect to a TO MapVote server ?
If so try to remember if any thing has changed on your system.
Like installing some new software.

31st Jul 2001, 06:46 PM
Okay. It seems that Norton Antivirus was the problem.
NAV is basically a file filter that tries to keep programs from making changes to files on your system.
With some insight from BDB, we think that it is the updating of the TacticalOps.ini file that NAV does not like.
To work around this problem disable the "Auto-Protect" feature of your antivirus product and you should be fine.
With Norton AntiVirus just right-click on the NAV icon in the systray and click "Disable Auto-Protect".

Here is a screen shot of NAV with Auto-Protect disabled.
I got to this screen by clicking Start->Programs->Norton AntiVirus->Norton AntiVirus 2001.


Thanks to BDB for his help on getting a resolution to this!

31st Jul 2001, 07:07 PM
Thanks a ton, that will save me hours of investigation.

^BLaCkRaiN^ , are you using Antivirus ?

31st Jul 2001, 07:52 PM
Nice catch guys. I wasn't even thinking anti-virus.

1st Aug 2001, 10:58 PM
yes, I am using Norton Antivirus as well, same version, actually. I really don't want to disable my Auto-Protect tho, you think making the ini file "read-only" would also do the trick?

2nd Aug 2001, 07:15 PM
Don't know why there is problem with Norton AntiVirus.
I use McAfee and never had any problems.
I would consider it a bug in the AntiVirus software.
Do they have a forum/FAQ on their web site ?

2nd Aug 2001, 08:09 PM
Not all antivirus software is created equally. Some are less intrusive than others or just do the job a different way. I have seen other software that will not work with mcaffee but will work with norton.
Disabling auto-protect is probably the only way to get this to work. There is a lot of good software out there that cannot work with antivirus software. I consider it a workaround and not a real resolution to the problem. Sometimes a workaround is all you will get. Especially with antivirus software.

4th Aug 2001, 05:58 AM
is there any way u can patch this BDB?

4th Aug 2001, 10:44 PM
I'll try to look into it. Maybe I can contact someone at Semantics
and find out what exactly is conflicting.

Problem is that I do not have NAV and I'm not willing to buy it
just to solve this problems. So It might be difficult to fix
if I can't test it.

7th Nov 2001, 11:46 PM
hey BDB.. it's me again! :)

Every time I play TO.. I have to shut off Norton.. and it's really kinda startin to get annoying.. have u found a solution to this problem yet?
