Angry Can't connect to multiplayer games.

Every time I try to join a server, i get a "connection failed" message. I have the v3270 patch and ive tried overwriting all the Alien swarm files with new ones. Help please.

Some rules of thumb:

1) Try a different server

2) Try to turn off your firewall...

3) Check your ping...as well as the server's ping

4) Check the version of AS that the server is hosting...

5) Ports 7777, 7787, 7788, 27900, and 42292 to be open in your firewall or router.

I think I have fixed the problem. Open UT 2004 and join a deathmatch server. Once joined, leave and go back to the main menu. Once there, click on "community" and click on the "user mods" tab. Start Alien Swarm from here and try to join. Make sure the serever you join is running the same version of unreal and that sho8uld fix the problem. At least it worked for me.

Hah! I GOT IT TO WORK!

Here's my solution: move all .upl files from your system folder into a temporary directory while playing AS except for xplayer1.upl and xplayer2.upl.

I got it workin.

.upl ? I only have those two .upl files you mentioned in my UT2004\System directory...

Do you have some other mods installed or something?
