    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.
