Hi rocken,

Aberdeen.rfa is the only file you should have (the .rfa's for the other maps are single player and CTF mode stuff). Make sure you are looking in the right place in the list for the map. It won't be under "A" for Aberdeen but "O" for Operation Aberdeen.

And yes, you do have the wrong version, all servers are now running version 1.31, so you will need to download and install this before you can play online again.

Hope this helps

Hi rocken,

The map is called "aberdeen.rfa" in the folder, but appears as "operation Aberdeen" in the game itself, the map name is stored in the .rfa file and can be anything the maker wants it to be. Maps are easy to get working, once in the correct folder they automatically appear in the game list. Did you get the correct map? It came in a self installing file called "battlefield1942aberdeenmap.exe", the extractor should have put it in the folder where the other maps are installed, default is "C:/EA games/battlefield 1942/mods/bf1942/archives/bf1942/levels".

If it's not in that folder that's the only way it will not appear in the game. It's a BF1942 map not a Road To Rome map so make sure you don't start RtR instead of BF1942.

Good luck
