New problem with SWAT...

Well all works after reinstalling my pc, but.. When I try to cennoct to a server, it shows the "Connecting" bar - it get's filled in 3-5 seconds, but it doesn't change to the "Loading" bar. It's doing that about 4-5 minutes - then "Loading" starts but when almost the whole loading bar is filled it says : "Connection has failed!".)

Anyone know why that happens or how to fix it :? ?

Maybe the Proving Ground was full at the time you wanted to join?

Just try again.

test it in other server also.
So if you cant join the SAS PGs then have a look for some fantasy servers out there in the Swat world and see if you can connect there.

that sounds like you are blocked internal from getting a connection. So after you reinstalled your pc make sure that your internal firewall (windows-firewall) or any other firewall you installed (maybe) doesnt block swat4 from making a constant connection to the internal. so check your settings.
Start->Einstellungen->Systemsteuerung->Windows-Firewall->Ausnahmen
see if Swat4 TSS is in there and the checkbox marked (Haken gesetzt)

Well. Windows-Firewall isn't even activated and ZoneAlarm grants access ( If it wouldn't, I couldn't even see the server list cause i had a little problem with that as I started playing SWAT online.

Its not that simple, but ok.
Whatever: Now you have to be a man and fix your prob on your own. No more support from me, because it is just impossible to help you via forum. (and btw I am not quiet sure what the heck you are doing, because reinstalling the whole pc because of a single game....man what have you done to your machine before?)
So maybe you should concentrate on another game like: Galaxy Invaders,Asteroids, Pacman or Giana Sisters...oh wait thats probabaly not your time...

Ok now to be serious again: Last question:
Do you have any other games installed that are connecting to an internet server? (Ravenshield, CS, AA, ArmA, CoD, WoW, etc...)
If yes: Do they all work online?
If no: Install one!

Well Timbo, I don't want to be annoying to u.. But well to answer ur question - RvS for example works.

so last answer (probably):

If Swat4 is the only game that doesnt work, then it is the game itself. Neither your machine nor your windows installation.
I have no more ideas sorry.
Checklist is always:
- firewall
- router ports limitation
- sw deinstall & reinstall

Try to reinstall SWAT, and make sure when you uninstall to delete everything, from registry keys to data in your AppData folder. It'll take a while to install everything, but it'll probably fix your problem. It might also be a problem with your ISP or even your connection; the list goes on.

Yes delete everything (SWAT FILES!!!) like he said from registry the best way i did this was just search it go on find> tick all the boxes `keys` `valuse` `data` and in the search box type `SWAT4` or anything similar like SWAT4 Stechkocv any think really like the `sierra` folder would be good to search.

good luck.
