I got Battlefield Vietnam just for the multiplayer experience, but it does not work. Whenever i try to connect to a server it goes black for a second then the screen to load the level map comes up and then a second later it displays the message 'data differs from server', and goes back to the server list. It does load the serverlist fine. I run a p4 2.4ghz, 256ddr and XP. I have broadband and are connected to my router via a LAN cable. I would be grateful for any help if possible please reply to my email at [email="firstname.lastname@example.org"]email@example.com[/email].
I guess my first question is, are you using a crack to play your game without CD, or anything that changes a file in BFV? If so then that is your problem, you need to have the original .exe from the actual CD. If that is not your problem, then I would suggest a re-install of the game, as you might have gotten a corrupt install. Else try a bunch of different servers, someone might be running a "cracked" server, and you are trying to connect to it with your "legal" copy.
Thats a version issue or you have wierd mods in your main BF folder overwriting needed files. This is a classic Reinstall every thing for a fast fix.
I am getting corrupt data anyone know why? After i reinstall "everything" it worked one time then again said,"corrupt data". (not to hijack your thread but my answer will fix your issue.
did you edit any maps or save things in the BF group that may have corrupted somthing?
