    Hi, my sons playing Halo 2 right now online and he says he has no problems finding and joining games. We're using the Xbox and PC through a 'Linksys' router.

    John :)

    Not had any "problems" as such, but I do find that it sometimes takes a few minutes to find a game - i'd simply put it down to the volume of people playing...

    Patch released today to address slow matchmaking issues. Get in!

    EDIT: ...and also unlocks Foundation multiplayer map too.

    How many maps are there?

    I only really play rumble slayer and so far have played on 3 maps. If I want to play some of the better maps do I have to do CTF or other objective games. All I want is all out deathmatch on any level.

    IIRC Foundation was the 12th map. If you do slayer matchmaking online, you will only play a selection of the maps available as it only chooses the smaller maps for more frantic action. IMHO, you're missing the best bit! Try some team skirmish or big team battle, thats where the quality is!

    My wife has kurbed my gaming at the moment. I have resorted to nibbling at the campaign in odd moments and HL2 when she's gone to bed.

    Currently I am getting about 2 hours sleep a night

    I thought the patch had sorted it. It was working brilliant no wait at al for games. Still getting big delays sometimes though :( Just too many people using it.

    Yeah, I can't work out if the delays are because there either too many people using it, clogging it up or not enough, so it can't find enough people of similar rank...? Anyway, it has definitely been alot better since the patch :D
