Banned in the darkness !

Hi guys,
I've been having problems installing BF1942 on a new notebook with dual graphics and I got a lot of black screens (so I never knew if I was in the game or not).
I fixed the problems (patched menu interface resolution to 1080p if anyone is interested), but today I found myself banned and I can't tell what I did wrong !!
Please help.. thanks
Ted

Hello. There is no Ted Danger in the ban-list.


Never underestimate the predictability of stupidity.

Re: Banned in the darkness !

Hi, that's strange maybe it's something in the mod/patch which is banning me ?

I can enter other sites with no problem, with yours is says banned immediately. I will now use another computer and see if I can play. Do you have a record of entries which are blocked ?

Re: Banned in the darkness !

Apparently, part of the coding of the bf1942.exe file was changed to make menus go at 1920x1080 so they have the same resolution as the game. This solved my black screen crash.
The link where I got the files is: http://www.bfmods.com/viewtopic.php?f=3 … 6481605b07 (on the 3rd page).

Re: Banned in the darkness !

Well, I deleted everything and copied the config that works and that's what I'm using... pity the menus at 1080p same as the game worked well on this new notebook with an Nvidia mx150 together with Intel built in graphics.
The switch between 800x600 menus and the game resolution crashed it with a black screen, so I'm forced to play at 800x600 ....but at least I can play !!  smile
