"Connecting to Crynet Servers"
« on: February 18, 2016, 04:02:38 PM »
Hi all. New to the MechWarrior universe but diving into it.

I've downloaded the MWLL launcher, run the Gamespy Fix, and updated the host file in the Win/Sys32/drivers/etc. file, and made sure it's unblocked. When I go into the game and select Multiplayer, it gives me the dialogue "Connecting to Crynet Servers"--then the box closes and nothing happens. I've also tried manually inputting an IP (found on "Spooky Web") and that gives me even less. I'm not sure what the issue is at this point, but any help is much appreciated. Thanks!

Greetings :)

When you make changes to your hosts file it is essential to load notepad as administrator, then open the hosts file from within.

An alternative is to go here and download this tool:
http://forum.mechlivinglegends.net/index.php/topic,20534.msg353494.html
this will sidestep the gayspy(TM) shutdown.

If you still have troubles try coming to the community teamspeak server at:
mwll.mwmaster.com
If someone is present they will do their best to help you..

Keep trying! Its worth it (when the servers are busy) i promise you! :)
