bf2142 northernstrike problem

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I installed both 2142 and northern strike recently - back when they came out I got the game on dvd and the expansion from EA downloads.

Anyways, I cant seem to get northernstrike to work now (had to reinstall a few months ago) even though Ive patched the game and installed the expansion... I dont know what I am doing wrong

What exactly is it doing? If the splash screen pops up and then goes away without starting the game, that would mean you are missing some directx files. Well most of the time.

Are you using the 1.5 patch?

Generally, uninstall the game, delete the profile files, reinstall.
Once again...

?? The game loads but I cant join northern strike games and I cant unlock northern strike unlocks (yes I am in position to unlock them - it says to purchase northernstrike).

And I am using 1.5. I dont know how to uninstall NS - there isnt an uninstall that I can find but I did reinstall it and its still not working.

Anything else? Its not a huge deal - I paid 10 bucks last August for it and it wont be the end of the world but its just annoying.

Just to be safe:
Uninstall all of 2142.
Delete the profile folder.
Install 2142.
Install 1.5 Patch
Install NS.
Install 1.5 Patch again

I had a similar problem

What I had to do was completely uninstall BF2142, then

Install BF2142
Update to 1.5
Add Northern Strike
Update to 1.5 again

Then it seemed to work fine for me

EDIT: Damn, DuckieHo got in before me

I have found that a good install order is the 1.4 patch then the 1.5 patch then NothernStrike. Then run both patches over again. Sometimes it will install 1.4 and 1.5 again. Mine this time only did 1.5 and told me that 1.4 was already installed.

i dont know if this works the way bf2 did with the boosters, you had to register your account online, tying the expansion to the account you used. otherwise it wouldnt let you join EF or AF servers.
