Game doesn't allow me to join

When I try to join a game hosted on Steam it looks like it's going to load and then stops and puts me back at the main menu. I cannot join or host any games after this. If I exit the game and come back in to try again I get the same results but only that first attempt. Subsequent attempts without a shutdown do nothing. Help?

This happens to me too. Are you using the new build?

I had this issue and it turned out I never got the R2 Build. The one Max emailed was jsut another copy of R1 labeled R2. Link to the forum post:

OK, so NumberZero had this same problem ... then after port forwarding 27105-27106 (UDP only) he was finally able to join us. There's instructions in the manual, but if that doesn't make sense come find one of us in the Steam group to help you.

Why would you need to forward ports to join as game? Port forwarding is commonly only required for hosts.

Because the minute 2-3 other people have tried this, it has fixed this specific problem. Makes no sense to me either.

Can't join any servers

So I can't join any servers after the update, I've reinstalled multiple times

Here is the log

also please change the windowed log batch file to use the code below as just running the batch file will not start the game as UDK.exe is not under the default location

cd C:\UDK\SolC - PG - Closed Beta\Binaries\Win32
start UDK.exe -windowed -ResX=1280 -ResY=720 WindowPosX=5 WindowPosY=10 -log -ConsolePosX=1290 -ConsolePosY=5

All I did was change the file location

Also it would be nice if the log could be saved to a file

Do you have your ports forwarded for this beta?

Yeah, forwarding those ports fixed it. I believe port 7777 UDP was also suggested. I went ahead and forwarded that one too.

I did find it kind of strange that I was able to join that Boston server for a moment before I ended up forwarding the ports...
