Hey guys, im new to this tribesnext patch, i was playing it yesterday and it was alright, but then the next day, it dosent work. Whenever i connect to any server using the tribesnext patch, i get an unhandled exeption error all the time and when i re install using a different directory, i get some kind of message saying "server sent an unrespondible challenge IP" or something like that, i downloaded this other alternate master server that lets you play online using Solo & Lan and i can connect to any server (exept TribesNext servers) normally. Can anyone here help me please?

You'll get this error if you (or a specific server) failed the external IP acquisition test. Type (or paste) this into your console(~) and make sure what you see is your external IP:
If you don't have any trouble retrieving the server list, restarting the game or using ipv4_getInetAddress(); in your console should fix the problem just fine. If not, report back and we'll see what we can do about it.

I hope things work out with tribes next..
I have been getting a lot of UEs online lately.. if my enternet is down, and I want to try and play off line no luck, going to get a UE. its a shame those who own this game don't patch it right and fill the loadscreen with advertisments and links to games they are making, and gain some support for their future games...

I just fixed the problem by removing ALL filed to do with Tribes2 and the TribesNext patch. I then rebooted the computer, downloaded a fresh copy of TribesNext and reinstalled, works now but for how long?

Indefinately, really. The problem you were having was not with some change in your configuration, but with the game being unable to connect to assign your internal IP.
For most people, this would occur when a firewall is blocking the game, or an anti-virus program is checking HTTP communications.

Yeah, it did it again. I dont even know what my external IP address is, i have a router so it just says: 192.168.0.3

Wait, I found it. The command echo($IPv4::Inetaddress); shows an IP address that is not my real one, i know my real one begins with 120.***, but it keeps on showing a different one that starts with 222.***, I cant remember what it was but anyways, I have been reading the IP add shown on the bottom of my posts and 3 of them show the 222 one, but one of them shows the real 120 one which was when i said it works. Is there anything you can do?

Right click my network places, properties, double click local area connection, click support tab, there's your current actual ip for the system you're on. This is with xp by the way.

That will be his local IP...
Unless you're connecting through some funky proxy, or have a very dynamic IP address, TN should properly detect your IP when it's doing its initial queries.
You can find your external IP with
before posting support requests.

Well my ip apparently starts with 222.*** but its not the same from the one under my posts, its changed again but it works now

IP changes occasionally, or often, I haven't made a note of how large or small the intervals are.

IP addresses will change each time you connect to the ISP. For dialup, this means that you'll have a different external IP each dial in. For cable, the IP will only change if you are disconnected from the ISP for a specific length of time. Cable IP changes have to do with the DNS refresh interval, I think it's like 15 minutes but don't quote me.
The above is

Well then thats 3 out of 3, I can view the server list, restart tribes and get my external IP, but sometimes I still get an UE

UE's happen occasionally. Sometimes its because of something have edited that caused it, sometimes it just may be Tribes acting like a stubborn child, either way, as long as it isn't really affecting your average game time or during important issues, they aren't much of a problem.

Well it IS a problem because I cant join ANY server thanks to UE... It seems to happen when i change accounts or something like that
