Help. I have a legal copy of BF 1942. My computer is a Athlon XP 2100 with nVidia Ti4200 with 1 gig of ram. I had not play BF42 for about a month. Prior to that month, I had played BF42 multiplayer online & single player with no problem.
In the past few days, I had updated BF42 with the v1.31 (I think that v1.31 is the update). Also in the past few days, I have been able to play single player BF42 without problem.
However, when I try to play multiplayer online and hit 'update", my computer locks up and I must reboot. :( :( :(
What is wrong; what have I done wrong; what gods are conspiring against me playing online multiplayer BF42? How do I solve this problem? :(
Cheers, Richard (firstname.lastname@example.org)
did you go from 1.2 to 1.31 or 1.3 to 1.31??
I don't know how I got from which version to which version?
What should I have done? Which sequence of versions should I have utilized?
Cheers, Richard :)
I recoomend uninstalling it all, then reinstalling it going from 1.0 to 1.1 to 1.2 to 1.3 to 1.31. Yuo reallinjg shouldnt have to do this, but people have experienced problems taking shortcuts. Try it and post to tell if it worked. MAKE SURE YOU DELETE ALL SUB FOLDERS AFTER UNISTALLATION!!!
They automatically blank out the first four letters of your name. A little too politically correct for my taste.
However, I totally eliminated my old BF42. I reinstalled it, but could not find any version before v1.31. I loaded v1.31 without loading any previous patches.
Indeed, same problem. When I hit the multiplayer update button, the computer locked up, & I had to reboot.
Where can I find the v1.00s, 1.10s, and 1.20s? What else can I be doing wrong? :confused: What computer gods have I ticked off. :lol:
The pre v1.31 patches don't seem to be at the EA web site. However, I might be blind or incompetent. :o
Cheers, Richard :D
