Can't join any server

I recently ditched my old desktop pc for a windows 8 laptop. Now AvP2 is unable to join any servers at all, usually gives the resources differ message. I made sure MS 2.2 was installed first. Any ideas?

Alright man, we currently do not support the 'TBBC MODIFICATION' (i'm sure you know why)

but that resources differ message is old skool,

- You have mods running and trying to join a server that doesn't allow it
- The server has a mod running - but you don't have that mod/map and trying to join it.


It's either one of them.

Just ump2 maps. I disabled all that and tried again. Same deal...

But one server gave a funny message about "world versions" differing, that's a new one.

Server name?

if its 'AVPUNKNOWN' server it uses a different version of the MSP (probs why you cant join)

if its not.... then the server must have strict 'crc' checking enabled or a mod.

server name please?


Cheers

I think I tried just about all of them, including avpunknown. Same result every time.

Disconnected: Some resources differ from the servers.

I moved the files of the game from the old computer's hdd to the new, but then reinstalled the game, etc.

Conflict somewhere,

My advice would be, (start again)

- Uninstall
- Use ccleaner (clean left over files )
- Install avp2
- install sp and mp updates
- Try again


Let me know the 'outcome'

Ok, will run through those when I can.

A lot of things I transferred across from the old pc are acting funny or asking to be reinstalled too. Ah, computers...

inzy if you have win 8 run avp2 in windowed mode
command line it's +windowed 1
the max resolution for this game its 1024 x 768 x 32 bit
here the way for bypass
http://www.avpunknown.com/cgi-bin/YaBB.pl?num=1272905528
tip 1 disable this option

tip 2 if you have a nvidia card disable this option

many servers use ms 2.2
but some use old ms 2.0
if you want join inside old avpunknown server for exemple
you need to roll back 2.0
here a backup if you need
https://mega.nz/#!Q55DVKJD!eIMM71KYBgFkNKALwW0QGGaOtrO5iSB8R5P1jaqKlns
if you continue to see same error in all servers probably you have a corrupted version
try olde version
http://www.mediafire.com/download/w78rmpslt9quc57/AVP2+%2B+Primal+Hunt.zip
tip instal game and dlc
if primal hunt dont want start try this exe
https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B3n28sBr7mbvaFMxaVF5SFpyamc/view?usp=sharing
final tip
use default root for game and expansion
or game become instable.
note:
if you use old ms 2.0 you need to disable clear type option from windows control pannel .

Hm ok, thanks will try this stuff too.

I already tried windowed mode with another old game and the performance improved from it...
