[TM2] - Cannot connect to the server (12029)

Post by chaosbox_foremost » 16 Sep 2011, 20:41

Hello everyone,


I'm having an annoying problem. I just received the game as a gift, installed it, ran it and right when the game starts to try the 1st connection, an error appears saying "Cannot connect to the server (12029)".
I saw previous posts of this, refering several "pseudo-solutions" envolving Internet Explorer and many more issues, but I have a friend who lives in Lisbon, Portugal and he can access the game with no problems.
Are the master servers down or something?


Please advise :(

Check your host file in windows (You can find his location here : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hosts_file)

Then put this file in editable mode (right click on this file => uncheck the hut read-only).
You need to remove these ligns (if it appears)

Code: Select all

127.0.0.1 mp02.maniaplanet.com
127.0.0.1 mp01.maniaplanet.com
127.0.0.1 mp03.maniaplanet.com
127.0.0.1 game.maniaplanet.com
You save your new files and recheck the hut read-only.


Now try to connect to ManiaPlanet.

I have been there. There is no such file as "hosts"
To my understanding that is the file i need to look for?
Or do i need to create a file myself?

Edit: This is my first time on this forum, and i noticed that the servers are down, and that they are aware of it.
Maybe this is the reason i cant connect.
