Keep trying I'm sure it will get working
Did a little research. Found out gamespy no longer has any support and thousands beside me are having problems

Just Goggle gamespy problems and watch thousands of problems crop up!

So how do you make it work? I didn't see a link, just a port number

Or we could take over ORNL's Petascale Jaguar Supercomputer!
They don't use it for anything as near as important as simming!!

Well I went to the gamespy website to register a new account. It asks for your email, then says it is not registered with them and therefore you can't register a new gamespy account

Hell no it's not registered because I am trying to register it! !!!!

What's wrong with these idiots?
I have read a lot of post-+
s on forums about this problem and getting kicked off gamespy after playing FSX awhile.

What I have found out is gamespy aka IGN does not answer emails or call you if you leave your phone number.

The majority of forum posters simply says "There is no fix for any of gamespys problems
So since I can't register at IGN for FSX , I'll see you guys around!

I logged onto GameSpy last night about 8:45 eastern and it had the usual number of people coming in and out of sessions. But I never saw one of our peeps. Seems to still work fine for me.

Just as a side note ED, make sure you don't have your Windows firewall and admin security too high. It will block any link like Gamespy. They appear like a system trying to get into your system and security will kill it. That could be your problem.

Under "Control Panel" then go to "Action Center" and then go to "change user account control settings" and set it at the lowest setting and try it again.

The server I use for combat doesn't support FSX, but there are others. Mainly you will have to join the server group and download a communication software(probably TeamSpeak I use it).

In stead of me having to type my a$$ off go to this link and check out what is involved. http://www.chocolatesoftware.com/fshost/

It took me awhile to setup up my combat one but now runs great. I'll keep checkin on others
