I followed the instructions, and it seems to work perfectly.  However, no one ever seems to be on!  Is this a firewall issue?  (I have all the ports forwarded like it said.)  So far, only one person has ever been on.  Is this an issue with my computer or does no one really play?

It's probably that no one is playing when you tried. Friday to Sunday at night are generally the best time to find people playing. The irony is of course that not many people play cause they go online and see that not many people are playing.

Judging from the number of posts I'm seeing about not getting the email from the server with the activation link there are a whole bunch of people who want to play. :)

thought id make my first post!

Im a noob to freespace after discovering its existence in the pcgamer mag.

I was trying to get multiplayer to work and it did last night!  And as you can see from the post above there were a few people playing!

Anyway im looking forward to my next game!

Since theres no lobby in the main multiplayer bit, i thought id post my IM details.

Hey i've been a FS2 fan for a few years now but never knew about the online play.  I though it was dead much like a previous poster though.  I'm glad i was wrong.

I went thorough all the steps that are listed on this site and the FS2-SCP site and have everything up and running as far as i can tell.  But when i long on to play multiplayer i get a message that says "conection failed".  

Any ideas?

P.S. what is the difference between "open" and "build" patches?
