I have two pcs on the same network. Both have identical bf1942 files. One pc shows all servers and the other does not show all bf servers. All filters are clear. Help!
Are you running two installs of BF1942 and are you sharing the same CD key?
i just got bf1942 ww2 anthology a while back and my roommate was wondering if he could install it on his pc too, i was just wondering if online play lets 2 pcs use the same cd key? we are hooked up with a router
I didn't make it!
well i have had no problem doing this, as i run a lan, so i use the same cd key for both computers, but only as a lan! also make sure you are runing latest patch
I know that if two different PC's are using the same CD key and one tries to connect to the same server you get a "cd key in use" message.

What ??? I have a big problem wth my cd key. I contact Ea games but they are too stupid.:moon:
To reply to everyones supportive comments, I have two PCs each running official games of BF1942. Therefore both have an official CDkey. The PCs are on a LAN that is connected to the internet via router. Both PCs have identical ports open and identical patched and BF1942 exe files installed. However, when I update on BF1942 multiplayer we find that the servers in the list are not identical. This is also apparent when you look at the number of servers and players online. The numbers are different. Also all filter are clear. Any ideas out there.
1st-Make sure you click update on both Computers. 2nd-Click on the users so that it lists the users from Most users to least users. When it does that, Match the 2 top servers to see if they have the same amount of people and are the same server. BTW when playing bf1942 and you both try to connect to the same server, you will get a CD-key in use message on one of the computers. This is only if BOTH of the computers are running the cd-key so that if a cd-key is stolen, only one person can play. Of course EA games has like millions just laying around to be used, so a quick call to their tech support or an email might be able to get yourself a new one. (not that I'm trying to get free cd-keys for anyone...No really, stealing is bad)

Assuming when you say ports open you mean it the firewall on each computer? Or are you trying to use port forwarding on the router itself? if you are using port forwarding on the router then you should disable it if you are using BF on two different machines on the same LAN to connect to internet servers because it just may cause the problems you are describing.
i was always under the impression it was illegal to use the same copy of BF1942 on any 2 PCs at the same time
