GF Pwns Me!
1st April 2003
I occassionally run a dedicated server(using my laptop) for my friends and I when we play BF. I'm running the 1.5 version, and while we can join BF, RtR, and SW maps with no problems, when we try to join EoD or DC it gives an error that says something like "wrong version/not the correct version". (I can't remember exactly, and I'm at work now).
I'm positive the versions are the exact same ones(DC .6f and EoD .21) because I've just reinstalled everything on both machines using the same disks.
I'm using the Dedicated Server program that comes with 1.5 . I previously used the one from Black Bag, but they don't have a new version out yet, and I couldn't find a link to an old one.
Do EoD or DC have dedicated server versions? I've just installed the play versions to the BF Dedicated Server directory on my laptop, which is the way I did it before and it worked without a problem.
Again, we can all connect and play on the original games and official expansions, and the MODs do come up and almost completely load, but just as the bar is almost full, the program gives the error message.
Any ideas? :uhoh:
GF is my bext friend *hugs GF*

I think you have to get the DC server thingy that came out when ,6 did check it out at the site.

And you also have to make sure that you take the check mark out of content check in the server gui.(under the advanced tab) that is what is probably giving you that error.
