    Hi guys

    What could possibly the reason for this error? It happens sporadically.

    It means connection to the server cannot be established. Does it happen with all servers or with some specific server(s) only?

    By the way, if the server you're trying connect to is listed here on the website, it shouldn't happen.

    It was on 7OXICiTY ::: STEELMILL

    But it wasn't with me. I got a friend to also install Crysis, he is using cracked version, although I assume that the installer used for this network is basically aslo like a crack? Anyway, he also doesn't have a registered profile, could that cause an issue? His latency was around 20ms

    I definitely think it is somehow in his side, as I also joined and only he got kicked. We than created a server, I did first but he couldn't join, kept saying Time out. I have created before and it worked so I have never really had issues. Mind you we are from South Africa so our speed isn't always that great. His is fatster than mine though. But when he tried to create, same setting, I also couldn't connect to it and it also gave me Time out error.

    Thanks for any feedback!

    I'll ask ctaoistrach to check logs on his server (7OXICiTY).

    Creating own server is not that easy actually, because your server must be accessible from the internet, otherwise nobody can connect (connection timeout error). If you want to host your own public server, you need to ask your internet provider about public IP address first. Then you will also need to forward port of your server on your home router. If your server gets listed here on the website, it means you did everything right and players can connect. In the GameSpy times, it was possible to create own server even without doing these things, and some (but not all) players could still connect. With CryMP, your server is accessible for either everyone or nobody.

    His nick is "Harry Balls"? According to logs, he was kicked 3 times for high ping. I'll increase the ping limit a little so your friend can play there.
