Hello, Just a quick question, I have ordered Battlefield 1942 Anthology and would like to know if I need to patch it? I checked the patches out on a few sites and they are huge, 200MB+ in one case (if I have this wrong I stand corrected lol) I am only on dial-up and downloading that kind of size would take an eternity, so please tell me I don't need to patch it?:( Many thanks in advance Hardtarget1967 :D

ouch, lucky i dont have to deal weith dial up :), the latest patch for BF1942 is 1.6. to find out what version you have, look in the lower right hand corner of the screen after the intro movie is done.

It would be best to get the lastes patch (1.6) as it fixes many bugs. If you would like to play online, then you must get the patch. Yes, it is quite big, but it fixes lots of bugs in older versions of battlefield. Just download it over night, if you have dial-up. But if you have broadband, then no problem :).

Hello and thank you for the replies,

Firstly I apologise for putting up a repeat post, I did do a search but the posts I got back although asking the same thing never really got the answer :) so sorry folks. Ok the thing is that I am not really keen on online play, mainly because I am very nervous and also very slow, through no fault of my own I might add :( so single is where I am at and prefer it, I know there will be plenty of you that will insist I go online, but with dial up as one of youmsaid you hated itm, same here! but broadband is not coming to my part of the world at all, so in the dark ages I will remain lol I am yet to find out what version I have but will check next time I play. Thanks again for your replies Hardtarget :D

Even if you only want to play SP, the v1.6 patch is still recommended.

Well, its too bad to have dial up, as it'll take you 48 hours to download FH...:(

Thanks and yes dial up is a real pain, I do have getright though, but not sure if I am allowed to use that to download the patch, it would still take an eternity though, but at least I can download a bit at a time, not much better I admit, but its better than starting and then getting cut-off!!! lol :(

Cheers Hardtarget :D

Hey looks like I am ok with the patch as I bought the Anthology Pack and it states that I have version 1.6 :)

So I am happy that I don't have to download over 200MB I would like to download some of the mods though, but some of them are pretty big too :( still can't have it all, the fact that the game now runs on my upgraded system I am happy, as I have wanted this game from the day it came out, but was told not to bother as I would'nt be happy, and true to being told that I found the demo to be very jerky and slow, but now I have nknow trouble, well.......that is except the sound, but I have searched and found things to try and its much better than before, like at first I could'nt hear myself reloading and that's now working and well........what a fantastic game, shame I have'nt the nerve to go online, that and the dial-up problem :( Thanks again for the help Hardtarget :D

If you think you can wait for 2 full days, get Forgotten Hope v0.65.

Anyway where are you from? Why can't your place get broadband?

I am in the UK and in a Small Market Town in the back of beyond and there are no plans to get broadband here, the local Council where I am said as much as far as I am aware. We also do not have Cable here either..........Oh hang on I must just check how my chariot is out side :lol: :rolleyes:

Well I may try to download that then, but for now I will try to enjoy the game as it is. Cheers Hardtarget :D
