Thread: Arma 2: Free - game freezes when trying to join a MP game

    Arma 2: Free - game freezes when trying to join a MP game

    I am currently having a strange issue with Arma 2 Free. inb4 must be a hardware/driver problem, the game runs fine single player and everything. When I go to multiplayer and try to join a server, the game just freezes and I have to ctrl+alt+del out and close the not responding Arma 2 Free. Everything works great until the instant I double click on any server I want to join, and I have tried many, the game just totally freezes (but I can still move the cursor around)

    Please, any help or ideas would be appreciate, I have no clue what the problem could be.

    1. Try disabling the firewall and any antivirus software completely, see if that helps.
    2. Stop being such a dick.

    Like I said before, it is completely allowed in windows firewall. It works fine except when I try to join a server, then the game just freezes. I'm sorry, I didn't mean to come off as belligerent, it's just this faggot came along like "yeah I don't care, should have titled your thread something more relevant." Whatever dude, too late. I just wanna get this game working and I might consider buying it.

    Will I have to post multiple threads under multiple accounts to get an answer (because I will, please appreciate my willingness to play this game because with any other I would have given up)? Please tell me why it freezes right when I try to join a server. Might it be a problem with your proprietary battleye service? I just don't understand this. I play so many other games but only this one locks up.. It is excepted in my firewall, everything is a o.k. network and hardware wise. So why does it freeze when I try to join a server? It works good on my laptop, which is running windows xp, but not on my desktop here which is running win7 sp1.

    Bit of a longshot. Are you running game as admin? If not you might need to

    Dude I have tried everything such as that. I'm at wits end here, which is why I have come to you. If you can't help me with this... well then, better uninstall and never bother with a bohemia game again. The customer is always right, right? Well, this time I don't know if I'm wrong and I need help. Please make some effort to help me and STOP PATRONIZING ME. I have made my problem clear, lets skip these silly semantics. Please, I really want to play this on my new pc.

    Can you provide the complete hardware specs of your computer, including motherboard and NIC?

    Also, which antivirus program do you use?
