Hullo,

Oft when i try connecting to other servers, it sends player info and gets the map okay, but when it should be counting craters or dropping me in, i only see a really zoomed in view of the ground, and it just stays there. I can still get back to the server menu, but the game just stalls there. I've waited a few minutes in that zoomed-terrain limbo. . . should i wait longer?

I haven't had any other problems with the game. i run a p3 450, 256 ram, ati rage 128, win 98 os. Wellp, any advice appreciated =)

That could happen if you join a demo server, playing the full version and have a non-demo tank selected.

you have to use Dreadnaught, Nemesis or Liquid Falcon tanks to log into a demo game from the full version...

I tried the new widow tank, and I noticed that this happened on a full version server.
Does anyone know why?

Yes - the Server MUST have the tank in order for you to use the tank and not have the game freeze. Thus, never select a non-default tank until after connecting to a server. LDA is going to fix this in the first update, whenever that is.
