    You mean in general? All servers that is, or just RD servers?

    If I check on the Matchmaker statistics, I see some racers online, and some servers as well.

    You did not per accident click on the Show Lan?
    Also, check if you have enabled a filter in the list. You cxan do that in the Multiplayer Selection, and otherwise you can check the multiplayer.ini file, in your USERDATA folder in the data folder.

    I can have a look if you want. Send it to marco.bijl@racedepartment.com. You can also look for yourself. Then look for the following lines:

    Multiplayer Enum Type="1" // 0=LAN, 1=Internet
    Multiplayer Sort Type="0" // 0=Ascend, 1=Decend
    Multiplayer sort field="0" // Default to 0 to sort by game name
    Multiplayer sort value="" // Blank implies wildcard search
    Multiplayer filter password servers="0" // Setting to true will add filter to only search for servers that have a password and discard all servers without a password
    Multiplayer filter first operand="mod_name" // Blank implies no filtering will be done, otherwise this operand must be a field in the active server list
    Multiplayer filter operator="is" // Blank implies no filtering will be done, operator can be either >, <, or =
    Multiplayer filter second operand="" // Blank implies no filtering will be done, otherwise this must be string value
    Multiplayer auto retrieve servers="1" // If true then game will auto download server list when possible. If false, it won't and user will have to manually download the list

    Settings should be somewhat simular then I put here.

    If that does not give an answer, there is 1 more thing you can try. It sounds unbelievable, but I have had a situation already where this worked.
    Change your password, and try again. I have had with 1 member that had simular issues, and that was the sollution for him :)

    Same happend last time I encountered this issue. Nothing specific was done by the user, except for pass change, and all of a sudden all worked again.

    Anyway, good to hear it's functional again!

    thanks again marco it was good to get it back online , because there are some great races to be had on the public servers , which is strange as other games on public servers are usually full of wreckers

    Well, with the current status of rf2, there are little to non wreckers online. Those who are driving in it now, are mostly real simracers, and no "do-or-die" drivers. They have either got a refund, or never bought rf2 at all. As far as I have seen so far, there are no cracks around as well, wich makes the "illegal" users banned from online also.

    I only hope this will stay this way when the game goes gold.....
