When im playing online multiplayer with my friends i get kicked out... It says lost connection to the host but my internet signal strength is between 70 and 95 %.... I can not play one full game without it...


your wireless router is loosing enough packets to drop the connection. for a test try to use a cable to connect your ps3 and see if you still get kicked. if not then consider running a cable or replaing your router.

How can I play Conflict Global Storm online


You need to have GameSpy account to play multiplayer internet
If your old GameSpy account refuces to login, just stop fighting with it and make a new one because this game has issues with too old GameSpy accounts.
If you get error message about friends list when you try to log in GameSpy account, you need to remove some friends from your GameSpy account friends list or just create new GameSpy account with no-one on friends list.
To host and join multiplayer you have make sure you have public IP, because this game requires a lot of open ports (see manual page 17).

Online session making problem


There can be particular issues related
to playing through a router or firewall,
including sharing your internet
connection via another PC. In order to
join or host a Conflict: Global Storm
game from behind a firewall you must
open the following ports (inbound and
outbound):

UDP ports 4658, 6500, 10010,
13139, 27900

TCP ports 4658, 6667, 28910,
29900, 29901, 29920

To host a game from behind a router
with NAT (Network Address
Translation), or a firewall, you will
need to enable ‘port forwarding’ on
the following ports to route data to the
IP address of your PC;

UDP ports 4658, 6500

TCP port 4658

If you continue to have problems
connecting to servers or creating
them, try bypassing your router or
firewall by connecting your PC directly
to your broadband connection.

If possible make sure you or your friends are not behind NAT or firewall. It is much easier to connect if you have all public IPs and not something starting with 192.168...

Do not use ALT+TAB and do not enter Windows when multiplayer is running. It will kill the connection to GameSpy servers that are needed even when you are creating server to your own computer.

Sometimes in the lobby the server just dies quietly and you need to the restart the whole game. You will notice this when players just stop coming to your server. This usually happens because you switched to Windows even for one second and sometimes it just happens without any reason.

Trying to connect with a friend online and it says unable to connect to host


Make sure the PS3's wireless thingy is plugged in correctly and connected to your network. If you are wired make sure it is plugged into your router/modem.

Unable to join game session


after endless hours of trying to play online we finally found out what the problem was -

check your discs you should have a serial on there if one ends in uk & the other ends in uk then you should be able to play together

if one ends i unk & the other ends in us then this is why you cnanot join or you cannot connect to host
This is the FIX
create another user then create another playstaion account now you both need to creathe this in unites states with another mail account - fill out the address in florida californail post code 90210 - once this is done youshould then be able to join up in the call of duty lobby but unfortunatley your stats are afresh
