Hi ppl,

I have Battlefield 1942 with Road to Rome installed. I have installed the 1.4 patch. When i try to get into a game server my comp either quits to the desktop as soon as i click the game server or it says "Wrong version: Would you like to upgrade?" or something like that. I click yes to upgrade but i dont know what to download. I have downloaded a few files (no dodgy maps and no mods) and it still doesn't work. It doesn't work with or w/o Road to Rome. Plz help me!

Hi Help_Seeker,

To play on any servers you will need BF version 1.4. You can download it direct from BF1942files.com by following THIS link. Download it, install it and off you go. Come back here if you have any problems or questions. And while you're at it you may as well download the big mods like Desert Combat and Eve of Destruction.

Have fun

Sorry, you did say 1.4 didn't you.

Make sure you are connecting to a suitable server, some of them are running custom maps and mods which may not be on your comp. Also there are pure and unpure servers around (and no way to tell them apart). I can't join pure servers, only unpure cause of all the mods I have.

I am assuming that this is only a problem with online games but that you can start single and multi player on your comp with no problems, is that correct?

Get back to me ASAP

Actually, no, strangely enough, i hadn't tried to play single player until recently but that doesn't work either. I go into a singleplayer game and it finishes loading and comes up with a briefing window then my mouse freezes. Plz help me i really want to play (its not the cd).

Hi Help_Seeker,

That changes things considerably. It may actually be a problem with your comp or setup or something, so for a start a listng of all your computers hardware would help considerably.

As a prelim though I would suggest updating all your sound, video, motherboard drivers and updating directX if you haven't already got hte latest.

Good luck

hmm,..... I know that this may seem a little drastic, but try this ....first make sure that you have the 1.4 full patch not the incremental,.... uninstall BF and RtR (don't worry all saves and things should still be there) Install BattleField only! Install the 1.4 full Patch from EA or from Bf1942files... then install your RtR and any mods that you want .....see if that does it for you
