Just thought I would try it one more time (well twice actually).
First time, I just install the Reborn patch after stopping the server, without changing anything that was already on the server. Meaning all the custom maps and the one weapons mod were in place. Can not join. Just shows "connection timed out" when I try.
OK, second time I do a complete wipe and re-install of the game. NO changes to anything at all. I even left the default rcon password. I can join the game, no problem. OK.... Stop the server (stopping the server was one thing I hadn't done in the past when installing Reborn, which is why I wanted to try again) Install Reborn and restart the server. Again, can not join. Same "connection timed out" message.
Regarding changing the IP and doing a fresh install. I have tried that. I originally started with the server in Atlanta and then started to encounter this problem after a couple days. Trying various times to get it to work, I ended up moving to the server in NewYork. No change at all. Same problems just on a different server.
I really don't understand what the problem may be. I can, and have been able to for years, join and play on other servers that are running the Reborn Patch. Be they also on Gameservers.com or on another server host.
As previously mentioned, I also did a complete un-install of MoHaa on my PC and re-install along with the standard US/UK 1.11 patch. This is the setup I, and I believe most all players, have been using for some time, client side mods aside.
All I do know is that the problem is real. I'm not going through all this just for the fun of it.
The other thing I know is that there is nothing I can do on my side. Resolving this would fall on your side, that being Gameservers.comAs an aside, perhaps it's something Reborn doesn't like in the game files and not in the Reborn patch itself. Perhaps an md5 check of those files would be in order. I'm thinking it may be something inconsequential normally but rears it's head with the Reborn patch........Just a thought. I'm running out of ideas.
