im having a problem with my computer, specifically with trying to join in or create a game in star wars galactic battlegrounds saga, its not the game that is causing the problem but something on my system i cant seem to fix. after i load the game, and i click the "create" button to create a game, or enter an ip address and click the "ok" button to join a game, it freezes, that is it, it freeze and does nothing. i wait much longer than it says and it does nothing, the same thing happens when i try to join in or create a game in age of empires. ive done everything i can think of, forwarded the ports, even re-reinstalled the os, and nothing. let me describe how the problem started: when i couldnt get back into the online game runescape, when star wars worked perfectly(i was creating and joining in games easily), i did everything i could think of and couldnt get back into it, the java applets wouldnt load, so as a last resort i backed up my pics and stuff and reformatted and reinstalled the windows xp operating system, service pack 2. afterwards, i could install the game and play single player just fine, but couldnt create or join in games, reformatted and reinstalled again and i still cant get it to create or join in games. im on a cable modem, and have been before the problem started, can someone tell me what i can do to fix this?
