Cannot install gamespy v 1.61 patch for Battlefield 1942

I downloaded Battlefield 1942 from Bluedrake42's Website. (Bookmarked the link to the download server)

During my attempt to install the multiplayer patch from bf1942.sk, I got the error message "Setup Cannot Continue! No Battlefield 1942!" after selecting the DIRectory where my game was installed at (C:\Program Files\EA Games\Battlefield 1942/)

I also cannot install the RtR and SW expansion packs found on the Battlefield1942f2p website
Does anybody know what registry edits I need to make in order to be able to install the mod into my game DIR? Thanks

Any advice would help. Also I have checked under "Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\EA GAMES\Battlefield 1942\GAMEDIR\" to make sure that the registry entry of the Game folder matches the actual location folder, both are an exact match.

Please help.

They made there own game-launcher i belive, i dont think there version its compatible with the standard game, too much changes in the code.

Try Arkos links if you want to play "regular" bf1942.

Re: Cannot install gamespy v 1.61 patch for Battlefield 1942

Hello Arkos.

I uninstalled Bf1942 and reinstalled using the executable files inside of the zip files you gave me. Then, I tried to launch them to scan for multiplayer servers, they didn't work.

I Downloaded the v 1.61 gamespy patch from team-simple website. The executable file managed to patch the battlefield1942.exe file in my game folder, but I still couldn't scan for multiplayer servers in game.

I have followed every different solution listed in the gamespy master server thread, all to the same avail, the game freezes when scanning for multiplayer servers and unfreezes thirty seconds later with no result.

Is an internet setting interfering with my game's ability to scan for multiplayer?

I, at one point in the past, managed to download battlefield from battlefield1942f2p.com, which came with a multiplayer server already patched into the installation. I could scan for multiplayer servers from there. But recently, i had to reinstall windows, and am now unable to find any download with the multplayer server patch.

Any advice would help me at this point

Hope I'm being clear enough, thanks

Here's the right patch.

http://team-simple.org/download/bf1942- … atched.zip

Open the *.zip with Winrar, copy those files, paste them into your Battlefield1942MainFolder and overwrite all other existing files.
