Well hm. Watch out with this program - I installed it, and tried it both before and after I used the 1.61 patch - and both times my BF1942 client just throws me back to the desktop about 5 seconds after I start it up.

Cant seem to fix it either....it's just a little .bat script messing around with some files, so I dont really understand why it should do this.

Either way. my bf1942 is FUBAR now.

Krazy Kommando*all credit for finding this switcher goes to Caffeine Fiend.

What? I don't think so... Is he creditting it? I made this Patch Switcher tool! I have posted it on the BFE forums too and on many other place, even on these FH forums: http://www.gamingforums.com/showthread.php?t=163859 Please edit your post, I don't mind people to spread it, but it's lame to credit other peoples work. BTW majic, do you have a NO-CD crack? Because if so than that might be the problem. Otherwise you might have installed it in the wrong directory.

Ah yes I do....... I really despise having to have a CD in my drive all the time, and think it's rather a waste of space to use daemontools to have em emulating of my harddisk.

Too bad hmm. Oh well might just throw in the CD anyways, since there's no 1.61 nocd yet :(

Same here! Reinstalling BF and FH was the only way to fix it. :(

So be careful with this patchswitcher!

I was using the NoCD cracked version of the previous Battlefield 1942 version though, so that might be a cause.

Like most people, I dislike using my original CD's for use in the CD drive..

Funny you guys both explain it yourself :) .

This only works with a proper version of BF1942 ofcourse and not with any modded, cheated or editted exe-versions of the game. The No-CD won't at any way work with 1.6.1.

Please don't go into .exe editting, one mistake of PB and you are in troubles, it gives problems with a lot of mods and it's not supported. And not supported by me as well.

There is by the way nothing fubared, just re-apply with the Patch Switcher and you are alright. And in the future stay away of those .exe edits like No-CD things, it saves a lot of problems. Go with mounthing instead if you don't want to be a diskjockey.

You'd think so, but that did not seem to work unfortunatly.

Mounting CD images is nice and all, but keeping ISO's around for every game you play is a bit tedious at times.. Not that we have a choice at the moment.

I know that your the one who made it, and I would like to thank YOU. Without devoted people like you we would probebly had a lot of problems with this. But thanks to you atleast I don't have any problems any more. And to those of you it doesn't work for. You must have done something to it, it works tiptop in my game, and everybody else that I know who installed this as well. Cpt.SaUrOn see YOU in the Bfe-WaW battlefield:) :bows:

um, did i say anywhere that HE made it? no. i simply said "all credit for FINDING this goes to him". anyway, if u made that, thanx. patch 1.61b and the switcher dont work with no cd cracks or fixed .exe's of any type. so use the cd!
