i stumbled across this on one of my forums, and noticed how much bitching is goin on here about the patch issue, so i thought id post it here
Hi all, Have found this batch file that was lovingly written to allow people to switch their BF1942 vers back and forth between 1.6.19 and 1.61b so both server versions can be played on the one BF 1942 client install. Download this file: http://junior.forgottenhonor.com/hoststuff/public/PatchSwitcher_1.0.exe Install onto your system and it will place a "Patch Switcher" icon on your desktop. Running this will give you the option to switch between the two versions. Have tested it and it works fine.
it works great! everyone should get it! *all credit for finding this switcher goes to Caffeine Fiend.
Did he happen to find this off the BFE-WaW forums?
Do I need to already have the patch for it to work?
Yes. You need to have both patch files on your computer I believe. Doesn't matter which one you have installed as you can switch using the patch switcher.
thats awsome. ty for posting this.
i think u need to have the newest patch installed for that to work. -i dunno where he got it
I got one similar from the bfe waw forums, and it works great.
That's where I got mine too.
