Can't play BF1942 multiplayer games

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, I'm having some trouble with getting into any of the server games on BF1942.

Every time I click join it will load up the page saying requesting entry ( or something like that) but the bar will only increase slightly before saying error and going back to the server list.

I would love to play multiplayer as I've really enjoyed playing the campaign side and now wish to experience the multiplayer side

Haven't played that game in quite some time. Was really fun though. Definitely check out the Desert Combat mod for it. IMO, I thought it was better than BF2.

At any rate, have you tried uninstalling the game, deleting the registry folder, then re-installing?

Also, your firewall could very well be blocking it. after you launch the game alt+tab out of it and see if you get the pop up to allow permissions for the game to access the internet.

Here's a link to the DC mod: http://www.gamefront.com/files/20334..._Mod_v0_7_Full

If you liked the BF1942 DC mod then get FFOW. I still play it daily.

Yes there's still servers up & running, about 400ppl are listed as playing when I tried but I'll have to uninstall & resinstall to see if that works and try the alt+tab to make sure my firewall isn't been a big bad bully to me lol

Thanks for the link BlackOmega

EDIT: Checked out my firewall settings, AVG didn't have game mode enabled, so enabled that and still have no luck.. looks like an uninstall/reinstall for me.. YAY not! lol

You're welcome man, enjoy. It's a great mod, and I'll bet more people play that mod rather than BF1942.

I should re-install BF1942 just for kicks and giggles. I have it + all of the expansion packs.

PS: Another mod that was pretty sweet was Eve of destruction: http://www.eodmod.com/website2007/start2.htm

I still enjoy BF1942 to thsi day, 9 years later after its launch. These frenzied, ADD modern warfare games just don't do anything for me

Should try and see if I can get BF1942 running on my new rig below and Desert Combat. Now THATS how you make a simple and FUN modern warefare game!

I've finally got it working, thanks so much for help guys

I had to go onto EA's website and look on their support page for BF1942 and download the 1.6 Patch and then download the incremental 1.61 Patch so I could join in some multiplayer fun.

Keep a look out for mspinkie if you wish join me
