It would be nice if you could give us a specific error message you recieve when you try to join certain games.

Make sure you have both your callsign and password that you use on the forums entered in correctly in the join game menu. If you do that and it still doesn't work, try looking here: http://my.bzflag.org/w/Common_Support_I ... dentifying

when you play, is there a small + sign next to your name in the servers player list? If so, I dont know whats up, but if not, you need to make sure you've entered your callsign and password correctly.

Hope I helped!

I don't know if this is what's wrong, but some servers will only let certain people in (I think). Maybe it would help if you gave us the names of the servers that you couldn't get into. Also, there are some times when servers are down, It would really help if you gave us the exact error message, like A Distraction said.

What Quantum Tank is saying is that certain servers are "match servers" which only let people play who are on a list and if your name is not on that list, you cant play or talk. These types of servers for the most part are league servers and you must be in that league, registered, to play there.

nobody can really help you that much unless you give us the exact error message that you get because there could be a few reasons.
