Data Differs From Server (Battlefield Vietnam)

Have installed from the Battlefield Vietnam Redux CD's (the 4 CD's), patched up to v1.21, but I can't connect to my brothers LAN server (on same internet) I get a message saying "Data differs from server". I thought the problem might be that me and my bro had the same CD key (were having invalid cd key before since same key), but we tried a separate CD key (from online) and it still doesn't work but yeah the "data differs from server" message.

I know this forum seems to be all about 1942 but I'm hoping I can get help here, higher chance then anywhere else, but if there is somewhere else someone direct me please!

Re: Data Differs From Server (Battlefield Vietnam)

====Fixed====
We used a different CD key on a random youtube video and then downloaded Team Simple's 1.21 patched ZIP which had a text file that read:

===
Team SiMPLE releases:
---------------------
Battlefield Vietnam v1.21 patched

Fixes:
~~~~~~
* No CD
* Widescreen support
* GameSpy master server replaced with Qtracker

Installation:
~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Extract .zip file, preserving directory structure, in your
"EA Games\Battlefield Vietnam" directory. Overwrite BfVietnam.exe,
init.con, LevelCheck.con and Mod.dll files.

SiMPLE 2015-11-08

=====

So it seems like the other patch didn't work but simples 2015 one did, so thanks!

If anyone else has this problem the patch is found here: http://team-simple.org/download/bfvietn … atched.zip

...

If you guys install the same version it should work.

Perhaps a map is missing?

Re: Data Differs From Server (Battlefield Vietnam)

I don't remember exactly, it was some time ago, I think some No CD patches for Battefield Vietnam did not patch correctly for LAN gameplay. That 'Data differs from server' is because your BFVietnam.exe has a different CRC than the executable hosting the LAN server. I believe BFVietnam SiMPLE patch addresses this error.
