...

Activate DirectPlay

> Search > "Windows features " > "Legacy Components" > DirectPlay.

https://windowsforum.com/threads/turn-o … 10.205952/

(If you have any Installer for the game, or other old games, run them "as Administrator".) (Also Punkbuster)

...

Then set Compatibility Mode to Windows XP SP3 for

> Blackscreen.exe

> BF1942.exe

> PnkBstrB.exe, (can be PnkBstrA.exe also, but not sure.)

...

Ah, yes.

The best is if you install older games not into ProgramFiles/ProgramFiles(x86) because of some restrictions of Windows 10.

Instead install them in C:\Games\...

But if it's working, then it's ok.

Thank you Arkos

I reactivated DirectPlay and set compatibility mode to XP SP3 smile It works

What do you mean by Blackscreen.exe ?
