Probably just a technical problem. I've never seen it myself.

If I knew more about it I would definately help you out. Unfortunately, DoD:S is riddled with technical problems. Give JohnT, Artimus, or Kendle a PM if you still need help.

Fuzzy, sometimes the problem may be either with the ISP (Internet Service Provider) on the server side or the client side.

It goes through a few retries if it can't get the data packets from the server (or client), and drops the connection after a certain number of attempts.

Reasons? Could be anything such as congestion at either client or server ISP side, bad line, etc.

It is the same as when you are watching cable or satellite TV and sometimes you get those black blocks messing the picture, or the pic is lost for a few seconds or minutes. The digital box tries to recover....but sometimes the box has to reboot itself.

In a game, the server or your own computer (client) drops the connection, forcing you to reselect the server to connect.

All you can do is grit your teeth and live with it.
