IMPORTANT! Help for Dummies to keep playing after June 30

Postby Madrid » Sun May 25, 2014 10:20 am

FIRSTLY OPEN THIS http://forum.bf1942.sk/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=1813
This is a quick thread to show you what to do with the downloaded files you got from forum.bf1942.sk/gamespy

For CD players, get the CD one. For origin players, get the Origin one

Image

Once you downloaded the file :
Image

Extract, then you should have

Image

Copy them (Ctrl + C), then past them here
C:\Program Files (x86)\EA GAMES\Battlefield 1942 (CD players)
C:\Program Files (x86)\Origin Games\Battlefield 1942 (Origin players)


Image

You WILL need to overwrite the bf1942.exe file

Image

You can see that one is from 2013/14, and one is from 2004. The one from 2004 is the one which uses Gamespy, which will stop working.

More to be added. This should be enough

I see your picture, and that looks like my Battlefield folder. You may need to get some patches at forum.bf1942.sk/gamespy, but you can try to do the above steps

Hello Madrid and thanks for helping us all!
I'm not so great with computers (only with killing nazis :lol: ), I wanted to go with the exe option, but the first part of your first post appears to me as a pic rather than text, I can't press on the links and when I tried to type them manually I get an error message.
And for some reason, the first post is pulled to the right, so I can't see the ending of sentances.

Can you please help me get it right so I can continue playing with you guys?

Many thanks
DEICIDE
