check the FAQ's for each program. They list common errors with using either program, and I would start there. Most likely the correct ports on your router aren't opened up yet. If nothing works, check their forums, it's a pretty high chance that someone else has the same problem as you.

If you're talking about chat rooms, on the left side, right click on the game you want like ST and choose "Join Chat".
If you're talking about all games being visible, right click on any game and choose "Hide Missing Games".

ArcLive is Shit.
My name is "TheUtilityGirl" I am 23 year old "girl gamer". This is about my experience with the Street Fighter community and specifically ST and GGPO.
I have been playing arcade and console games since I was a child. I remember going into an arcade as a child and seeing all the pretty lights and noise and just mashing my fingers onto a happ button on a old big woodie cabinet.
Gaming was a big part of my family for as long as I can remember. My father brought home our first Genesis and Street Fighter II Special CE when I was around 7 years old. I kept wondering what this game was. I never really played It in Arcades till I was much older. I just remember mashing kicks with Chunli or Spamming Blanka Electricity and Ken\`s Fireball. Till one day I kept dropping quarters into an arcade machine. I was hooked at a very young age I guess you could say. I have loved playing street fighter ever since.
As I was growing up I played the MK games and CvS2 as well. But when I was 19 I found ST. You could say it was love at first sight I guess. Before ST I was competitive but after ST it was a burning desire to become as strong as I could. If playing ST with a few friends was falling in love then playing ST on GGPO was like getting married. I was exposed to a level of play and community that I had never experienced before. This was right after Ponder released ST on ggpo so I was able to witness the second age of ST.
I call ST on GGPO the second age for one main reason. It unified all the scattered players from all over the internet and small local communities into one single place. HSF2 on Xbox Live was dead at this point and outside of Japan there were only small communities of players in Cali, AZ and some on the east coast as well.
I experienced something playing ST on GGPO that i had never had before. The thrill of competition and the adrenaline surge when you are pushing your limit playing a strong opponent. Experiencing some of the strong OG\`s like Calipower, GigaMSX, JumpSuitJesie, CigarBoB and DJfrijoles to name a few was amazing. This was also the first time we had access to some top Japanese ST players as well. In the beginning of GGPO ST the room would constantly have over 100 players. Watching Jodim and GigaMSX war it out with Dictator vs Zangief was just amazing. They made the game look nothing like the same game I was playing. This made me want to push even harder to learn more.
I will admit that I was a total scrub in the beginning. Playing all of the characters in the game and trying to learn everything all at the same time became a problem. It was Ganelon that was the first top player that took the time to sit me down and talk to me about how to learn to play ST. His first advice to me was to pick one character and move from there. I kept getting small pieces of advice in the chat and in game from random people.
One particular player became my friend and ST mentor and that was CigarBoB. While some player gave me advice here and there, CigarBoB actually spent time with me and explained the game in a way that I could understand. I feel like this was a turning point for me. I was finally able to experience the game like a top player. My skill level wasn\`t there yet but I was working on it every day. With CigarBoB\`s help I worked on my game and moved to playing Ken, Fei and Claw. I was getting better and better and started to take games off some of the stronger players. There was still a large gap in skill but I could feel myself getting stronger and stronger.
At this point HDRemix was coming out soon and the Beta had been released. GGPO was getting more and more popular as people were coming on to get brushed up for its release. The community and skill level had never been higher. More and more Japanese were coming on. American player were constantly improving and getting closer and closer to their Japanese counterparts. It was truly an amazing thing to be able to witness.
Up until this point my experience with ST on GGPO was really positive. I had met a few good players that befriended me and that I still call friends. Then HDRemix was released and this is where being a \"Girl Gamer\" finally became an issue.
Upon the release of HDRemix almost all of the "OG`s" left GGPO for HDRemix. This caused something to happen to GGPO that I didn\`t expect. Without the "OG`s" in the GGPO community the younger and weaker players became the dominant force. This also brought a flood of sexism in as well. All of the sudden I am being called trash for just being a woman. People spamming sexist remarks like "Tits or GTFO" and calling me UtilityBitch and other creative names. I was being told constantly that I could never be good at this game because I lacked a penis. I guess you need one to become a strong player in ST, or any game for that matter.
This continues to this day. In response I began to fight back in the chat as well. Calling the sexist players out and going off on them. What am I to do? I love playing ST but what GGPO has become is just a shallow empty version of its old glory. Now very few "OG`s" are left to keep the kids in place so they just keep swarming. No matter how hard I fight back it never ends.
I often feel that this is a problem with online gaming on all platforms. Any time that a girl Is playing in a group you either get "Hey wanna cam" or "I didn`t know they had computers in the kitchen now". I am sure that many people are thinking that these remarks are funny. How would your own mothers react to you treating a woman like this in real life? Would she be proud of you for how you are acting? My love for competitive ST hasn`t faded one but.
My love for the community that surrounds the game has become almost nonexistent at this point. When I do win games my male opponent will often lie about the results. When I call them out on it I just get called a bitch and a liar.
In this, and many communities similar to this, the females have to put up with so much just to play a game they love. Either you hide your gender and just play or you show that you\`re a female and get harassed constantly. My love for ST is no less than anyone on GGPO. I have played for days at a time with very little sleep because I was so engrossed in the game and improving at the same time.
For me this is an end to the Second Age of ST. This is a very sad time for me because I love the game and I love what the community was at one point. I don’t know if I will leave like so many have in the past but how long can I take this type of abuse from so many of the other players?
