Halo pc online error message unable to join the game server

Hey all, I've been playing Halo Online Multiplayer for quite some time now without any issue but yesterday the Ping column went blank and I wasn't able to join the game server that I usually play. Then today a few more game servers wouldn't let me join, all I get is the initial message "negotiating with sever" and then an error message "unable to join game server". I reinstalled Halo, then restored my xp to a date a month ago, went to Microsofts website and fooled around with patches but to no avail. Any ideas?

the server your trying to join might be using a moded version of the map,this means you can't join coz your map is different.if this is not the case then check that you have the right ports opened to join halo servers,also check your firewall.last thing is that you dont have a valid cd key for your game

Hi guys i am from bungie(c), and i will try to answer ur question;

if ur wondering why this is happening... here are some reasons;

1. You dont have the right ports open (like what guest said).

2. u have a bad connection, not only to the servers, but ur internet speed as well.

3. not all patches have installed properly (make sure your firewall is off while installing)

or

4. that servers PING rate has clocked out... (it means to many people with bad connection/ slow internet have made the PING struggle to keep the game together.


I hope i have helped u guys and i hope i can c u on the battlefield...

Regards, (GM)BOOM^^
