Hi,

I had the same problem, and I hardly could find a solution to get the problem solved.
But in the end, I found this post here:
https://windowsforum.com/threads/turn-o ... 10.205952/

And after activating the 'Legacy support' for DirectPlay, BF1942 started successfully :mrgreen:

Hope, this works out also for other people, trying to run BF1942 on Win10.

Greetings

Oh man, thanks a lot. Now it all just work. I downloaded everything from here: https://brandonhemmy.wixsite.com/f2pgam ... -downloads

I found out that I only needed the top left download since it has all expansions, patches and everything. I've installed all the mods, and then I used this all in one fix for server, no-cd, widescreen and so on: viewtopic.php?f=6&t=1813
I went for this solution: '1. using modified .exe files

I've modified binaries to use master.b1942.sk instead of master.gamespy.com. These versions already contain other fixes like widescreen support, fix for freeze on dead master, etc. Please read included txt files.

CD version:
files/bf1942-v1.61-nocd-widescreen-gamespy-fix.zip'
--------------------------------------------------------------------

After that the game just crashed on startup, and then I found this DirectPlay solution, and WHAM! :D

So now I got full BF1942, BF2 and BF2142 installed so I can have a go with the old stuff that just work. Nice to try the mods as well. Why pay for new crap games when you can re-play the ones with actual good gameplay...
