Everyone should be able to connect using your patch and searching for ax server, now just waiting for people to figure out it's not difficult :D

new ip is 94.23.196.155

in order to use the master on this ip, you need to manually adjust the hosts file (if you did so before), changing line

109.71.69.254 master.gamespy.com

to

94.23.196.155 master.gamespy.com

hosts patcher tool should be able to fix this for you, depending on how soon you try it (due to dns caching)

if you've used patched .exe files from the first post of this thread or patch from SiMPLE website, the change should be automatic (when the dns change propagates)

sorry for the inconvenience, i can't currently solve this issue in a different way

The old IP (109.71.69.254) seems to be responding again, since about 5am PST Sep 12. However, master.bf1942.sk still isn't working.

master on the new ip was running since thursday evening when the primary server went down
when it came back on saturday, both were working in parallel with server entry expiration turned off

i've cleaned up the mess now and there's only one instance running but accessible via both ips, old and new
new ip (94.23.196.155) should be preferable to use since that's where it's actually running

also http://master.bf1942.sk is back up

Okay, thanks for the info. I'll make my HOSTS changes permanent.

Hello guys!

I need your help. Can anybody tell me is it possible to get this game (Battlefield 1942) work on MAC mountain lion (V10.7.5) ?

hello,

i don't think so, bf1942 was a ppc app and support for ppc apps was dropped in 10.7
so your only chance would be some kind of virtualization, booting to windows or to an older osx version (and you'd still have master server problems with mac version)

Sorry, have just looked back at this project now. I can see your ip has changed however even after changing the hosts file it still doesn't work. I think my media might be wrong as I cant see any packets going out to your ip when I run a dedicated server. I'll try again from scratch. Just the two patches after I assume?

Ok, can see packets going out to 94.23.196.155 on port 27900. I reinstalled, patched with battlefield_1942_patch_v1.6.19
battlefield_1942_incremental_patch_v1.6_to_v1.61b

and over wrote my dedicated server with the team-simple binaries that point to your server

Can't see myself on the master though? Currently coming from: 27.252.242.247

I am also happy too. Take care this mother game of the Battlefield series, it contains all good what you will never find in the new games back!

If dou you dont find servers, don't worry.

This modified "bf1942.exe" brings you the Online Servers back: http://team-simple.org/download/bf1942- ... atched.zip
