Go to control panel, and use the " restore system" utility. Put the last day that you know was working good and fix it.

God bless you

Did you get a new router or connection to the internet? The LAN games must see your ip address to communicate with you. If yours router or firewall is hiding the ip address, or if they're seeing an address starting with 192.168 or 10.10., that's the wrong ip address.

Some a/v software which includes a firewall can prevent connection too, and just disabling its firewall might not be good enough to get through. If you use the Windows firewall, it can be disabled as a test.

there are many many games that you can play in multiplayer modes but you ought to have resources.

if you and your friends have a laptop then download counter strike . and play it with your friends bu connecting all computers through wireless lan.
if you have a desktop and laptop then you can use a lan cable( it costs 50 INR or $1)

Since windows 7 you cant Host a game anymore! The only chance to host and play Hidden & Dangerous Deluxe under Windows 7 is to install VMWare Player and then install WinXP on it (VERY EASY AND FAST, you need a WinXP CD or a ISO file). Then you have to activate Direct3D under the settings of VMWare and it installs automatically VMWare Tools. After this you can install H&D Deluxe on the VM and play the game in full resolution and full speed (fps) without any error!

This helps if you have problems with hosting a game under Win7 with these errors:

Warhammer Mark of Chaos-Online Games


Okay, this game is a bit on the older side, so very few people play it anymore. If you can't see games that's probably the primary reason. The only other reason it could be is any firewall settings you might have might not recognize Mark of Chaos packets and therfore not let them in or out of your firewall. Try opening ports or shutting down your firewall when you go to play the game.

Playing Online Games Behind The Router

A router uses a combination of hardware and software to prevent unauthorized users or internet traffic from accessing your private local area network (LAN). If your game console, such as Playstation is behind the router, you will need to configure routers Port Forwarding feature in order to play online games.

Note: You will need to get the ports and service type for your games. This is usually available from the games website.

Steps how to configure router to play online games:
  1. Open a browser and type in the following URL: http://www.routerlogin.com or http://192.168.1.1 (depending on the model number of the router)
  2. Type the Username as admin and the Password as password and click OK.
  3. Click on Port Forwarding under Advanced menu.
  4. Then click on Add Custom Service
5. Under Service Name, type the name of the game.
  • Select the Service Type from the drop down menu (depending on the game).
  • Type the Starting Port and Ending Port numbers (depending on the game).
  • Type the IP address of your PlayStation in the Server IP Address box and click Apply.
  • Click on WAN Setup under ADVANCED menu.
    • Check the Disable SPI firewall box
    • Change MTU size from 1500 (which is the default) to 1300 and click Apply.
    Now the Playstation is ready to use.

    I hope this helps...

    Why can play my game on playstation3 from playstation 2 what do i need


    The only PS3's that have backwards compatiblity were the first 60GB models, and some 80GB's that are no longer in production. You can still find them on Ebay and Amazon.

    The 60GB actually has the ps2 hardware in it allowing for 98% BC, however the 80GB that is no longer in production used software to emulate ps2 playback.

    This has cuase alot of people to be dissapointed with sony, however, in 2 or so years most people won't want to play ps2 games anyways, so it really doesn't matter.

    Everything you would want to know is found here:
