I have read through the existing threads about freezing etc and see some of you have the same problem as me. I put the disc in, download the first patch (1.02 - 131mbs), then it goes to the title screen and the message: "Unable to download key configuration files. Please try again later."
I have tried opening ports (firewall. Not using a router) but no luck. From what I have read on here, the game only works with certain ISP's.
As a last resort I have brought my tv, PS3 and laptop to work to get the computer experts in the building to have a look, but they aren't having any luck.
What we are going to try next is a 3G dongle and if that doesn't work, the IT guy is gonna take it home and try it on his uncapped ADSL.
But from what I understand, it's basically luck of the draw if your ISP works.. but say it did work on his net and the game installed, and got the patches... any chance it would work from that point on my iBurst?
Any other suggestions?
I should add that although I know iBurst isn't the best - I haven't had trouble with any games in the past on either PSN or Xbox Live; although I know this game is a different beast altogether.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
