Hi there,

I wanted to replay BF1942 after some years without touching it but i don't know which file is the good one to install first ?

I know i need the game before downloading RtR and SW or New Maps but which file need to be installed first ?

I'm running on Windows 10 64 bits

Thanks
A future player

Then set Compatibility Mode to Windows XP SP3 for

> Blackscreen.exe

> BF1942.exe

...

Otherwise i can help you via Teamviewer, if you want.

Re: Download

Already did that as you mentionned in the linked topic in your first reply. I can launche the game but not play it.

I have 2 situations right now when I launch a game:

1) the screen freeze on the skirmish/campaign/multi menu and the loading music plays
2) I can enter the party after a proper loading screen, deploy and play but i can't go back to the menu (game finished or intentionally) without freezing my laptop...

That almost sounds like the expected symptom of not having the GameSpy fix installed.  The last link in the list provided earlier was for applying the GameSpy fix, but maybe it's missing / not applied where it needs to be applied?

The installation option I prefer is to download and execute the "Battlefield 1942 GameSpy patch v1.61" installer ("Battlefield 1942 GameSpy patch v1.61.exe") from the Team-SiMPLE downloads page.  That will guarantee the fix goes where it needs to go.

What DOESN'T fit with the symptom is that you say the hang is indefinite, and will last for hours if you let it.  As I recall with the GameSpy issue, although the hang was present, it did eventually time out.

EDIT: Missed a link.
