ok i have the free release of gta2 from rockstar games and i just installed the game hunter and signed in. there was one other person that is signed in, but when i try to send them a message to start a game or just click "create game" there is no response from that person. im wondering if its probably just the user or if its got something to do with my router... im not sure if my router is already set for gta2, but earlier today i was playing multiplayer against another pc on my network with no problems... does it work different when its over the internet rather LAN? thanks.

That is just someone idling or waiting for a player with a better ping to join. Working on LAN does not mean it will work on the internet, you will need to forward ports, something many people seem to have trouble with. I wrote some router setup help, try and work it out but if you still can't then my msn is [email protected]

Is it this error?

System Error &H80070583 (-2147023485)

 

I don't know what causes it, only one person has reported that error so far and they said it didn't happen in the old version.

 

Try this GTA2 GH v1.45 (test version without richtext support).

 

You can also try GTA2 Gamer, it's another game finder made by Dracoblue but it uses a different server, so you won't see the same players.

It says that before the interface is even displayed? What are you system specs? What Windows version?

If the host is using a router which is not set correctly, no games will appear in the "Join" list. If you have a router or firewall which is not set to allow GTA2, there will be no games in the "Join" list. If you are using a computer which is part of a network, it is probably using a router of some sort and that will normally block GTA2 unless you change its settings.

 

Sektor's tips on setting up routers for GTA2.

 

 

Sooper Cool, if you are still around try getting the latest version of GTA2 Game Hunter from Sektor's homepage. The problem might have been fixed since the last time you tried it.

Does game hunter detect you as having a router? It should say in red text "You are using a router" when it you start it. There will also be an ® next to your name when you host. If GH says you are using a router then it's highly likely that you don't have a direct connection to the net, maybe your ADSL modem is using your external IP and is just giving your PC an internal IP. If that is the case, you will need to find a way to port forward.

 

You should also check if other people can join the hosts game, sometimes the host is the problem and not you.

I don't play GTA by the rules... i do my own business.

Even in deathmatch i don't usually kill others, but rather vandalise cop cars and run laughing.

 

 

btw, exactly why aren't there people online?

Old game, not everyone who has GTA2, has my program, not everyone can setup their router or has broadband. That being said, there's 15 people on right now and sometimes up to 25, it just depends on the time of day. It's most popular in europe.

Hi there,I have installed your program,but there are some problems with my network. I have a router,so I changed the settings as you wrote on your page. But the main problem is,that I am behind proxy server of my ISP,so I can't change its settings.Is there any solution for me? Thanks.

I need more information. Have you been able to host with other programs? Can you connect to IRC servers? Do you need to use the proxy for everything or just web sites?

 

You can try using http://www.hamachi.cc instead of game hunter. Hamachi doesn't require ports to be open. You will only be able to play against other people who are using hamachi though.

I need to use proxy for every program. I can connect to IRC,but I cant play online some games,for example Trackmania Nations. And Hamachi did not work for me. I tried to make static IP adress, but then I cant connect to the internet.

Hi, I don't understand, what it is about with the usernames.

 

This name is in use.  If you were recently disconnected, you may need to wait a minute for it to timeout

But there is no one else using this name on the list and I don't want to change my username every week.

Any ideas???

It uses irc.gtanet.com, so the name can be in use by someone using mIRC or some other IRC client and in a totally different channel.

 

edit: That was the case, someone else was using the name

confused.gif I had to reset the system for some times while game hunter was still running because the system was frozen. Maybe it has something to do with that. I don't know.

But I want my nick back cryani.gif

<Luke> We were attacked by botnets yesterday

<Luke> the only thing we can do when that happens is just kick everyone trying to connect off

<Luke> everything should be back to normal now

 

It has nothing to do with your ISP. Everyone who wasn't already connected was blocked. It's something we have to live with because the server is shared with many others that have nothing to do with game hunter.

To play using hamachi I want to start an IPX game yes? But it seems I can't start one with most versions of the game. In 9.6f I can get to the first MP screen, but nothing happens when I click create. In 10.3 and 10.5, nothing happens when I press the Start NetworkGame button, period. Any tips on this?

With Hamachi, you still use TCP/IP (it could work with IPX but there's no reason to, it would just be more complex). Your opponent will need to be in the same hamachi network as you.

 

edit:

 

I'm still working on Game Hunter. Here's a screenshot of 1.47. No release date, just minor changes need to be made but lots of them and it always takes longer than I expect.

Hi, I'm using GTA2 9.6F as well as my friend and I have created a Hamachi room. Upon TCP/IP authentication the game will be shown to both me in him in respective roles but when either of us attempts to join the game locks up and eventually the join times out. Does anyone know why this is, maybe a patch is in order?

I wouldn't expect any patches from Rockstar. Most companies don't release patches for their old games. 9.6F can work fine over hamachi. GTA2 network window will stop responding for a while if you try to a join a game that doesn't have all the ports open or has some restrictive firewall. If either of you are using a firewall, disable it.
