I have been getting a lot of errors lately, like:

Connection failed:
Downloading (deck16) not allowed

or

Connection failed:
file type missmatch

I get these errors when going from one multiplayer game to the next. I usually have to shut the game down, then restart it. I can then go to that exact game I was suppose to go to from the last. When we are done with the deathmatch, I get the same error everytime when going to the next map. I have to restart then go to the next map.
I have reinstalled many times, I have reformatted c: Drive (unreal sits on my F: drive), I have the latest patch, direct 8, etc.

Please help.

Very strange indeed.

As you must download Deck16 and a re-install did not fix it, I could vaguely guess that our friend friend Hybris struck again.
However you said you reformatted C: ? Then it should be gone (it's a virus in the wsock32.dll, so use a virsus scanner on it)

I'm not sure if it is this, but it's worth a try

Thanks 8-4-7-2,
That was the problem, a damn virus.
I downloaded Mcaffree, sure enough, not only had it on the c: but the f: also.
replaced wsock32.dll........unreal works fine now.
