Ok. Patch 1.02 just will not cooperate. I downloaded 1.01 and I was able to change it to an " .exe." file and it worked fine. Now my BFV will not even load. All I see is the opening "Battlefield Vietnam" then it goes back to my desktop. What is diff with the patches ??? Is there anyone having this prob of not starting after the patch ??? I'm about to run the game without the patch. I could use any insight. Free drinks & chips :beer:

what was the size of the 1.02.2 patch that you downloaded? 3 megs, or 16 megs?

It was 16.6 M. What is the diff between the two patches....1.01 & 1.02 ??? Both files are the same size, but diff dates.

the 16 meg patch was the client patch which is what you should have downloaded. if it was either 3 megs or 108 megs, for version 1.02.2 those are the server patches.

Thanks for all the help. I got it to work by changing the file name with " .exe." before I downloaded it. All good here now :beer:
