When I check for multiplayer FH games in BF1942, all on the list are greyed out, indicating that they aren't the same version as mine, and indeen, when I try to join ANY FH server, I get an error message "wrong version". I am offered to update but this never happens, no matter if I click okay or cancel.

I have FH 0.70, recently downlaoded from Fileplanet, so I assume that this is not the problem.

My version of BF 1942 is 1.6.19 to my knowledge the most current version.

Has anyone any idea what is wrong with my installation? Since it takes quite a while to install BF 1942, install the patch, and especially to install FH, I would like to know what works before I blindly fidge around.

Thanks in advance.

Did you remove the old version of FH? If not, re-install everything.

Make sure your BF is patched with 1.61b

there is a difference between that and 1.6.19..but a naming fault by EA has made it hard to distinguish

*1.61b is like..20mb or something*

Also get All Seeing Eye (ASE) when you do patch up to find games. Try it...you'll like it!

No problem, I'm still going to move this to the help/support forum though. ;)

Oh and use FileFront it owns FilePlanet, not to mention that FileFront sponsors the FH mod with hosting their forum space, their private dev forums and these forums. :D
