    Yep, just seen the update to Gameloft's ModernCombat Sandstorm and am downloading the multiplayer op now. No chance to play it yet but hope someone else is online too ...

    I am trying desperately to get online but I keep getting error message saying upnp isn't enabled on my router but I have double checked and it definitely is.

    Anyone offer advice because I've been waiting to play online for ages and I'm so close.......

    Yea, this looks pretty exciting. I got the very same UPNP message. I hope they fix this soon.

    Massive thread over on toucharcade about these problems. I think I'll leave it a few days before updating!!

    I'm not getting any error messages but the program is crashing on me. I've got a Gameloft id, can get online, see various hosts, but as soon as I try and enter the lobby it all freezes up and I need to press the Home key to escape.

    OK, resolved the connection issues. Seems if on an iPhone, switching to Aircraft mode sorts it all out (obviously with wifi switched back on). Now can connect without any problems and played a couple of games. Initial impression is quite good. Off to play some more.

    So remember, switch to Airplane mode.

    Edit: Back to "Duff", as since writing the above I've only managed to play one game. But what I've seen looks good. Sort it out Gameloft.

    I Did It!

    Played my first multiplayer match....
    I was suffering from all the typical errors, crashing, UPNP, etc.
    I tried the putting my phone in airplane mode and enabling wifi. I'm not sure if that's all it takes, but now it's working.
    My initial impression is that this may be the best multiplayer FPS for iPhone yet.
    I Hope they enable some taunt/chat functions, either way we are definitely moving forward here.
    -iMech was pre-school
    -Eliminate was grade school
    -Sandstorm (with bug fixes...) could be the real high school experience. Sort of reminds me of Quake/Quake II before it got off the ground.
    Add me as your online friend if you dare, I'm Psycdude
    Off to frag some more!
