Hey guys I am having a problem setting up a server in Operation Flashpoint. I go to the MP menu and click on New. As it should, it takes me to a creating client screen, but that only shows for a couple seconds and then it sends me back to the MP menu. I've tried reinstalling and repatching it several times but nothing seems to work. Can anyone help me?

Firewall issue? Or sockets/ directplay?
I'm Norwegian, what's your excuse?

I already opened all the ports in my firewall that are required for OFP and whatnot, but still nothing. What exactly do you mean by sockets and directplay?

experienced the same
the problem for me was that my pc's name was something like "ádám-pc" and somehow ofp doesn't like characters like "éáűőúöüóí.. etc", so had to edit it to.. "adam-pc" or whatever.. and that fixed both my ded. and non ded.server problems.

Well, my PC's name doesn't have any of those characters.

I'm still trying to work on it though, but no results yet.
