Ok has anyone noticed how when you first start up the game and try to join a server its pretty quick. Let's say that first server you tried was full, ok find another one. Except, the second time around its real slow, showing the BF1942 splash for about 10 seconds then it goes to the connect screen.

This continues with every server from there on after the first attempted one. Wtf is this all about?

Yup your right, mine does that.

Im pissed off with buying freekin games that dont do what it says on the tin. By the way the last game I bought was B17 2, that was screwed as well. GRRrrr

Anyway I suspect that the patches will arrive but at the moment its long live DOD cos that still rocks.

I love the comments like " it works fine now , all I did was turn the sound off!" lol. I applied this fix to my car which sounded rough. Ive fixed it now by taking the engine out and the noise has gone !!, but performance has been detrimentally effected. :fistpunch:

Yeah that bugs me too, usually when I'm attempting to connect to a 19/20 player server I get that BF1942 logo and by the time I reach the connect screen, the server is full. It's not easy finding a server that isn't full nor empty, I think there's a way to diss the logo just like you can remove the intro and other movies for when you start your game up from desktop.

Echo, yeah DoD does rock, however two things keeps me from being a regular player ofit:

1. The players and their attitude sucks.

2. Wrong engine to build realisim around, it has some limits and some glitches and is an easy engine to cheat in.

Them BAR whores, KAR whores, bunny hoppers, grenade glitch campers- I can go on :P I hope the DoD team converts their engine, but for now I'm an RTCW and BF1942 guy!

I have been playing DoD since beta 1.0 but I have really lost interest as of late. BF1942 is becoming much more fun and I agree the HL engine is really outdated. I would love to see a DoD with an updated engine like Q3.
