I reinstalled arma today again, and applied all the patches. But when i tried to join a server i could not select teams, or see anything in the multiplayer setup screen. It was greyed out, all i could do was press "OK" or "Disconnect" when i press "OK" it goes to the "recieving mission file" and just hangs then.
I have made a screenshot for you guys to explain:
Ive searched google, and this forum all over but havent found anything. I have reinstalled arma and tried it without any patches but again nothing as you can see above...
I have openend ports, disabled all my firewalls router firewalls etc. but nothing...
Sys specs: C2d 6600, 2gig Ram, Radeon X1950, Win XP SP3
Aaaaaah 2 minutes after posting this i solved it ***
Can't use Multiplayer Setup Dialog
Can't use Multiplayer Setup screen. Can't select roles for a mission, can't vote for a mission, and hitting OK will not do anything.
This issue can usually be traced to nVidia's nForce networking controller. The solution is to use a different network card, if available.
Work around to be traced back
Enable native XP2 firewall, or, if using 3rd party firewall, enable Arma and uPnP architecture.
I did not have a nforce network chip, but a marvell yukon. but anyhow i tried one of my other network ports and that solved the problem!
:| I have no idea what this says...but I'm updating my nvidia 9800 drivers.
I'm having the same issue after the game was working just fine for me.

this post doesn't make much sence
I'm running a 64 bit operating system, after updating my Nforce, making sure my firewall was disabled and DMZing my router, I'm still having this issue.
Fixed. I changed out and disabled my onboard networking, and i'm running with a cheap PCI eithernet networking card.
Fixed the problem right up.
