    Im not a guru but...
    What you described is what is suposed to happen. Its UT's loading screen.
    You probably have 1 of 2 problems:
    - You have not setup your conection accordingly (check your conection setup in Preferences -> Network)
    - Server is full (no help in that case, wait until someone leaves)

    It would help if you described what you see after the loading sequence you just described. Does the game crashes? Does it go back to the intro and displays a message? (intro is that fade in fade out sequence with music you see once you start thievery)

      1) When you say that it does not connect, what exactly happens? Do you get "connection rejected by server" message? Does TUT crash? Does it simply hang? If it hangs, then how long do you wait?

      2) What servers does this happen on?

      3) Have you added any programs or otherwise changed your computer since you last played online?

      4) Does Unreal tournament connect okay by it self?

      5) Is your overall internet connection seem slow at the moment?

      6) What kind of connection do you have (ie. dial-up, broadband)?

        Its on all servers.
        theres no message
        only connecting,that doesnt move until i go out of the game
        speed is 56k,but that never happened before,i can play normally,but now it crashed,dont know why.
        its really no crash,because in windows is written "progress is working"
        i can do all in thievery,its not crashed(thievery)
        windows isnt crashed ,too.
        What can it be?
        brody means its a mistake of the installation,which at an exact time(timerelated)
        comes.That happened by one of his relation happened to at similar problem

        You know now what it is ?

          Just try reinstalling thievery and ut if you like.

          If you can ping the server and you're not joining, you must have a really poor connection if it just hangs like that on 'Connecting".

            Agree with impulse- it might be a bad connection. I have used 56k, and normally it would take a minute or two to connect. However, there where times when I would have to wait more then 10 minutes to connect. Check with your provider- they may be upgrading the system, overloaded, etc. That was my problem. Maybe that is yours too, but not sure.

            1) How long do you wait?

            2) Have you added any new drivers, software, or otherwise changed your computer since you were last able to play?


            If it is not too difficult for you, re-install of UT (patch 436) and Theivery as suggested. From what you say, sounds like Brody knew someone who had the same problem and it helped them, so it might be worth a try.

                Do you have a firewall on? Try to shut evrything down.

                  Make sure your firewall, if any, has a permission set allowing thaux.exe access through it.

                  During the wait while your connecting, is there a download going on? If there's a percentage counting up onscreen while connecting, it means the server is trying to send you a file or files. If it's a big file (like a map) or if your connection speed is slow, it may take a while to download, and that may be causing the pause you're experiencing.

                    No theres no download and i have load him 10 minutes.. nothing happens.

                        I think I am experiencing this same problem.

                        I got a new laptop about a year ago, and yesterday I installed Thievery on a whim. At first, the game was doing some weird jerky stuff, but after searching the forums a bit I realized it was a dual core problem and it was easily fixed by changing the affinity of thaux (is there a way to permanently do this, or do I always have to start thievery, then minimize and change the affinity before I do it?)

                        BUT...now that it's working fine (in solo, at least), I have tried to connect to multiplayer and it's not working. When I tried to connect to Brody's servers last night, the music would stop playing and it would say "Precaching" briefly, just like I remember. It then says "Connecting," but instead of the game remaining frozen until I enter the server (like it used to when I played it years ago), it just sits there. I can escape back to the menu, and if I hit escape again it just takes me back to that brownish screen that says "Connecting" in red letters. But it isn't connecting.

                        System Specs:

                        Microsoft Windows XP Professional
                        Gateway
                        AMD Turion(tm) 64x2 Mobile Technology TL-50, MMX, 3DNow (2 CPUs), ~1.6 GHz
                        958 MB RAM
                        DirectX 9.0c

                        Graphics Card: NVIDIA GeForce Go 6100
                        DAC Type: Integrated RAMDAC, 256 MB


                        I have also tried disabling both my Norton Firewall AND my windows firewall, but it hasn't made a difference.

                          Drago,

                          Options:
                          1. Use the imagecfg program, following Salvage's rules for use on the Thief2.exe game executable. Be sure to backup the main ThAux.exe executable first.
                          2. Use WinXPLauncher to create a profile for that executable and tell it to use only one core.


                          I use the imagecfg method for Thievery and have never had a problem.

                            The problem could be thievery itself
                            Check if the intro plays right before alt tabing out of thievery to disable 1 CPU
                            If it hangs then restart thivery again.
                            Also OpenGl locks up, Use direct3D8, Then run thievery once under Direct3D8
                            then exit and edit ThAux.ini, at the bottom use these settings or you will not see crack clouds.

                              so...without changing anything, I was randomly able to connect to a server with Rodent and Illusion. But it wasn't Brody's. Could there be something on Brody's servers preventing me from connecting?

                              there wasn't anything downloading when i tried to connect to Brody's, either.
