    for the PS2 version, my brother is home playing and said he actually played 3 rounds without getting booted (he normally couldn't get past one) but then the next round, no one's stats were tracking and they got booted when time was up

    I got that error a lot when i was playing last night and the days before (don't know about today because i'm at work at the moment.) i'm working with download speeds of 5000 and upload speeds around 800, I am on a Linksys router but not sure what model it is because I'm not at home to check, but I know it's not one of the unapproved routers.

    I also play Socom and have no problems (except for the beginning of Socom 3 when everyone had problems because of their servers)

    Matt,

    Are we to understand then that Eidos (and/or the developers) have made some modification or maintenance to the servers that would lead them to be better?

    Thanks.

    1. Connection Type - Cable 5mbps up/down

    2. Router Type - Apple Airport Extreme connected to Netgear hub

    3. Connection Error - Fatal Error cant rejoin lobby, failed to report stats, just because, trying to look at my friends list... the list goes on and on...

    4. Time of occurrence - every time i log in or join a game or finish a round, heck lets just say all the time...


    Surely this information is dandy and all... but wouldnt it just be easier if you contacted Zipper Inc and use the same stable servers they use? Just configure the system to run your interface and game and voila! no more problems! [mod]Well it isn't that simple seeing as Zipper had and has nothing to do with the game as far as my knowledge goes. I don't see why bringing in a developer that had nothing to do with the code or the servers would suddenly fix this. One can dream but I think stretches the dream a bit too far[/mod]

    This list is for the most part useless, just a way to make us feel better. Companies uses the same basic hardware for a router, its just how the software processes the information and how secure it is. And how many times do you update your router software? maybe once every other year?

    I think Eidos slipped on this one... every other online game doesnt have the problems as this game is having...

    I appreciate you guys helping us out in this. I know some guys have too much to say, but for the most part, your community appreciates what you are doing and knows that it takes time to fix these things. I'm gonna log on right now again and see if it is still having problems. BTW, this game is awesome on sheer gameplay online. The graphics may not be the best, but you know what, this game is what socom 3 should have been. I don't want big maps, I WANT GUN BATTLES, and this game delivers. Thanks, Eidos. That being said, Socom still rules but big maps suck, mostly


    EDIT**
    I have enjoyed 3 and a half hours of straight playing without a single boot. Not bad, not bad at all.

    I hope the fact that people have given up posting in this thread doesn't give Eidos the false impression the game is working. The servers are still very much messed up -- people are just starting to move on.
