    Afternoon chaps.
    Finally re installed COD WaW on my new PC (only took about 12 months!)
    I am having a problem with playing on line.....Both the clan link and also the game tracker dont seem to recognise that I am on line,I get no connect icon on either!
    Anyone have any ideas as to what is going wrong?
    Would like to get back into action!

    Marcus.

    I have updated the game to 1.7 after installing all previous patches and still no joy.
    The only way I can play on line is through the game itself. (4 servers!)
    One thing I did notice is that the game didnt install a game icon on the desktop,had to create one myself.
    Have run out of ideas,any more help would be appreciated.

    For what you're saying, I suppose you're running "CoDWaWmp.exe" that is the executable for the multiplayer game. Also suppose you did a local installation and you aren't using Steam.

    1) Are you online? In other words... Is your nickname shown at top right of the screen and saying "online" like mine is?

    2) When entering in "Search game" (I don't know the exact translation to English, I'm talking about the first option in the last screen "buscar partida"), Are you able to see the full list of servers as looks in the next screenshot?

    2019-01-02_001741141 (Custom).PNG

    If not, press several times on where in my screen says "Fuente:" (Origin in English game I suppose) until it shows "Internet", also in "Modo de juego" (kind or game or so, same case as before, lost in translation) until it shows "All" or "Team Deathmatch".

    Let us know the results.

    I miss to blow up your helmet.

    Keep in mind that if you do the search of the servers using the "team deathmatch" filter, maybe ours wont be displayed if it's running one of the "domination" maps

    I guess I had the same problems a while ago.I re installed the game and after downloading all the patches I couldn't find the ucs server.
    I went then to 'new favorite'' and then entered the IP adress of the server and that worked.
    Just checked but when I look for games with the ''internet'' option the ucs server will not pop up between the serverlist ??

    Do you do a quick refresh list as the UCS server was on mine , Game mode all , clear any filters Source internet and Refresh list will go get an updated list, quick refresh only does a quick refresh on the list your game grabbed last time you did a refresh list
