I have tried to join games at Ubi.com but each time I get the message that my version "may" not work with the hosts.
I have tried to join in anyways and got an extremely long load time.... Is this normal or is there something I can do. I am using a cable connection, I installed the new version for GR (came up as an option when I first got on the site), from what I have seen everyone seems to be running the 14.00(or something like that) while mine was updated with the 14.01(or something like that).

I never tried to join a game before over the net-usually Lan only.... Help!!?

To Tommy_Guns,

Welcome to the game and forums. First of can you tell us if you have got the following installed? Ghost Recon, Desert Siege, Island Thunder and patched to v1.4. IF not then below may answer your question.

<font color="#00FF00">Patch v1.2/ v1.3.5/ v1.4</font>

You are patched to v1.3 or v1.4 so if you only have GR then you are only able to game with others that are Running GR patched to v1.3 or v1.4.

If you have GR/DS v1.3 or v1.4 then your only able to game with other players with GR/DS and patched to v1.3 or v1.4. Or if you host and want other mates to join you with only GR then once again your going to have to deactivate DS.

If you have GR/DS/IT patched to v1.3 or v1.4 then you can game with anyone with those CD,s. But if the host your trying to join is running Mods then your going to have to download those Mods in order to join the game.

So once again if any of your buddies don't have all three CD's, then your going to have to deactivate the ones they don't have to let them join you


If the above hasn't helped you could you post any error messages and anything else that may help us to help you.

Thank you very much for your help. I will try that. I purchased the Gold Edition with all 3 games and had them all active on my system.... I will deactivate two and try from there.... as to the version-I will double check on my game to ensure but I know I updated to Ubi's reccomendations (latest version hopefuly).

Once again, thank you for your help. I will try getting in again.

To Tommy_Guns,

I forgot to tell you this before but if the host is running mods that you don't have that are outside of GR/DS/IT then once again you will not be able to enter the game. To solve this you will have to go download the free mod and install it in order to game with certain servers or hosts. Below are links to GR download sites for Mods/maps/skins and missions etc etc.

Thank you once again, I have managed to get in. The sites helped me greatly and now I can fulfill my dream of shooting a minigun as well-found a Mod. for that as well.

Thank you very much.
