I only seem to get this problem when I try to join servers that are nearly full, or when attempting to join via match make. If I pick servers with more than 4 slots free, I never seem to have a problem. Try this instead, as I think you get the connection problem when the slot you are trying to take gets filled by another person connecting at about the same time... I may be wrong though...


I use much the same approach and I don't have many problems.

 

I usually go for 13/16 or less

Exactly! 14/16 and over is very hit and miss. Also another tip for the newcomers, you can refresh the server list which is good if you take pause when searching for a server.

I seem to get booted out of the system alot with network failures and quick match boots. On the home screen the cursor is way to sensitive and goes all over the place and on the "rank" list it does not show anything other than the top players since triangle does not pull up personal rank as instructed

ok, so further to my post a few days back, i've tried to play Starhawk again yesterday and today. 

 

Yesterday I tried between around 8 and half 9, and tried about 6 different times, trying CTF, TDM, large servers, small servers, near empty servers etc. For each one, it shows loading, then the splash screen of the level, and then "failed to connect". Cue lengthly cutscene...

 

Today I tried another 5 times starting at half 6, again selecting servers in every way possible, and no luck.

 

Has there been/could there be any feedback as to what the reason is for this, and if it will be fixed...

 

So far then i've got into one game out of about 20 attempts.

 

I'm wired in to a Netgear router, in DMZ.

Yeah lots of "Failed to connect" messages for me today. As others have mentioned, once you're in a game it doesn't mess up but it can take 4/5 attempts to get on first time.

Brief Description of the issue:

- When I attempt to join a game through matchmaking 75% of the time it just follows with a constant black screen that says loading at the bottom. I have not been patient enough to wait it out to see how long it takes before even at least joining a game, but one time I had waited for about 12mins and still it was present with the black screen.

 

Frequency:

- Almost every time ever since I've started playing the Beta. I will say the chances of me getting into a game straight away through matchmaking is about 20%.

 

Steps to reproduce the error:

- Matchmaking in Starhawk.

 

Your Connection Type:

- Wired

 

Your NAT Type:

- NAT Type 2

 

Your Upload/Download speed at the same time the issue occurred:

- 32.69mb Download/5mb Upload

 

Edit: I should add as I typed this message I am currently waiting on another black screen. It's been about 6mins.

About 80% of the time at the moment, this is the connecting procedure for me:

 

- Start game up, select Matchmaker

- About 2 seconds into loading, "Failed to Connect" message comes up

- Back to main menu, select Matchmaker again

- Stuck on loading screen indefinately, so I quit game altogether

- Start up again

 

Normally I manage to get onto a game after all of this. Like I said, once you're on there it's fine though.

they should not have a  limit to construct because when u try to build something u cant because everyone as build something or imagine when you are in a 32 player map each person is only going to be able to build only 1 thing.No limit to build and battle!

Game version : b1.3

Game mode : CTF 32 player

Error : Frequent net stalls....

Hardware setup : Wired PS3, Netgear router, 10Mb down, 1Mb up.

 

Cause of error : During the final stages of a round. Not often during the final stages of the half played match after initial room join. Frequent during the second round when staying in a room. Occurs during the sudden death mode or closing minutes of a match often when raising music is playing. Each time it's been noticed when either trying to build a vehicle or trying to destroy an outpost but I doubt these are associated.

I had an issue where I would get in a game but I'd be the only one in there, is it just that nobody was playing at the time? Wired connection, 20mb NTL, nat2, frequency happened a couple of times.

Hi, loving the beta,

So, it seems to me like you can create your own matches. As an option i can choose the 'max players allowed' as 2 (among others) but when choosing 2 (which is the smallest number) and then i create the game, the match still waits for 4 players to join before beginning. shouldn't it just wait for 2??

Happens everytime i create a match with '2' as the maximum amount of players.

Connection: Wired

SUGGESTION

Don't exist a button Change team


In the game, scoredboard, you could put a button "Change Team", because  I have to disconnect and try again.

Hi,

 

Is the Starhawk servers down or can others login to Starhawk Beta at this moment?

 

I got an error message that I was logged out from server during my game and need to login again. After I logged again (just selecting OK) my rank/level was decreased from 12 to 1 and in the next game the same occurred. After that I just couldn't logged in Starhark servers (I am logged in on Playstation Network still)

 

Now I can't play the game at all as the "error" message is 'You've been disconnected from the PlayStation Networks and/or the Starhawk servers. You must be connected to access this Beta.'

 

Connection type: Wired

DL/UL: 12/1

I got that often during the Beta..

What you have to do is log off the game totaly then reload from scratch as though you have just turned your PS3 on & it should give you your proper ranking..
