Battlefield 1942/General Problems/Internet Problems?

Q: Battlefield 1942/General Problems/Internet Problems?

I've tried to take care of this problems elsewhere and I'm not finding any fixes, so I thought I'd try here

Here's basically what we know/tried/ etc. in the other forum of not-so-knowledgeable people...

Penguin1986 said:

My problem is this: A few times today while I was playing, TS has given me troubles... the first time it said "Connection Timed Out" and suddenly I was completely disconnected from the internet, and I had to reboot my computer to get connected again.

I figured that this may be connected to my firewall so I disabled it and played some more. TS timed out again, but this time I could reconnect. So I got back on the server, played for about 30 seconds before I disconnected again and the computer locked up entirely. So, I went into the TS folder and found what I take to be a log file that ended with this error: "Socket error 10055."

So I think my question here is obvious- wtf is going on and how do I fix it?Click to expand...

The "give it a shot" fix...

Penguin1986 said:

The problem persists. Actually one of two things have happened today. The first time I got an error window that said 0xc0000017 "The application failed to initialize properly".

The other couple of times the game has simply locked up for a good 20-30 seconds then comes back, then locks up about another 30 seconds after that. Now I don't think it's TS because I played WoW for a couple hours last night while connected with no problems. BTW I've run about eight million spyware and virus scans which turn up nothing.Click to expand...

Outside of that I was just playing WoW while running TS and TSO (Teamspeak Overlay) and got completely disconnected from the net again. Does that have anything to do with it?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I have been having big problems with playing Battlefield 1942. I read on your website that I need to make sure that all of my drivers need to be updated fully in order to play this game. I have updated everything that I could possibly think of and am still having problems. Below is a description of my problems and specs of my computer including driver versions. Any help that you can possibly give me will be would be greatly appreciated. If you have any questions, I can be reached at [email protected] at any time of any day. Thank you.

If I play for an hour, I will most likely have a crash 4-5 times within that hour. It crashes during no particular reason. I do crash a little more often when playing online, and when I am changing maps. Sometimes I crash to windows and am able to get back on the game and continue playing. Other times I crash to windows and have to restart my computer because when I get back on to the game, it just crashes when loading a map every time. Also, the game completely crashes windows and my computer automatically restarts in the middle of playing for no apparent reason (Or at least none that I could find). I have installed the Version 1.6 patch to the game.
Also, as fast as I should be able to play my game with great graphics because of my system, there are a lot of choppy areas when playing. Especially when I am around a lot of other characters.

A:Battlefield 1942 problems

Hey, You Vcard and everything seems good. Try pulling your res to 800x600 or something and bringin down some of your settings. I used to Bf 1942 a lot at my friends place. He has Win xp to and it would crash a lot because of his graphic settings. I got it at my house and ran it on Win 98 , Med settings and it didnt crash yet. So try that, and if you didnt update your xp drivers, do that 2.

It seems everytime I connect to a battlefield 1942 punkbuster enabled server it kicks me out. I'm not sure why it keeps doing this but it is telling me I have been kicked because punkbuster is trying to update but it has been doing this for 2 days now. I have re-installed the game and applied all the new patches...and if anyone is wondering I do have a legit compy of the game.

If anyone else has been having this problem please let me know and if you figured out a solution to fixing this punkbuster thing.

I have this very annoying problem: Every time i join a internet server, the computer restarts,

same when i complete a mission in Campaing, well i dont care about campaing but now we know it aint with my internet to do

well can any body help?

A:Battlefield 1942 Internet & Campaing problem

This kind of question is always the toughest to answer, and if we're gonna help you at all, we'll need you to do the things in THIS thread. Also, make sure you have the latest patch for bf1942. You can get it HERE.

As far as restarting mid game goes, the two most popular causes are overheating and an insufficient power supply. As it only happens at these two specific points in the game, it's probably not these. We'll be able to tell you more once we see what's you've got under the hood of your computer (see first thread above).

I have a legaly bought copy of Battlefield 1942. I installed the 1.6 patch. (Just to make sure I installed the patch right... when you install a patch that you extract it or open it into the main directory folder? Right?).

For some reason I can't go to every server there are only a selected few that I can go to. I get an error that says "WRONG VERSION! Do you wish to update?" I click yes but it doesn't do anything (I don't think I would have to update if I have the newest patch!). Like I said before I downloaded the 1.6 patch and extracted it into the main folder for Battlefield 1942 (where all the main folders and icons are). I'm not really sure what to do since this is my first time playing.

Can anyone help me so I can play!!!

Sorry mate but i have been playing BF for the last 2 years ( great game ) in that time i have come accross and heard of many many problems but not this one :S

I am also on XP and SP2.

I would suggest uninstalling BF - Rebooting your PC - then re-installing BF but not overly convinced this would make too much difference

I got Battlefield 1942: World War II Anthology yesterday. While I was installing it got to 70 percent on the 2nd CD rom...I got an error message that said:

Specified component cannot be found in the media. An attempt was made to access the component that does not exist with the named media.

Then I click ok and the installation quits.

I checked the bottom of the CD and I see a few little scratches, but most of my games have little ones like that and it doesn't effect them. Unless there is another explanation for this from you guys, I'm going to go back to the store and exchange it for a new one.

Having great difficulty running this game. During play I get a lot of hanging. This happens regardless what I set the graphics and play on.

my system is a asus p4s8x, intel 2.53 chip, 512 corsair pc2700 ram, ati 9500pro card, onboard sound card and os is xp

using all the latest drivers for sound, agp chip and video and updated bios.

so far i've uninstalled all drivers and reinstalled in safe mode and reinstalled the game

window will not let me set the agp to 8x. Why? The bios is 8x and I've tried to change to 8x in windows but will default back to 4x. If bios is set to 4x the game still hangs.

A:soldier of frotune (general internet problems)

Ok, so what exactly is causing the games 'not to work'. More information will make it easier to work out the problem. When you try to play the games, can you get a list of all the servers playing the game? or can't you even get that far? I'm guessing the problem only occurs when your trying to play online, but how do you know it's had a problem. Ie. do you get any error messages? Also, what OS are you using?
Does your internet connection work fine. Can you use a webbrowser fine. Is it only games that don't work, or do other internet programs (like WinMX, or a FTP program) also not work?
Ok, any other information you can think of will definately help. I'm sorry I can't suggest anything straight out, but with more information I'm sure we can help.

I have a question about battlefield 1942. i was wondering, are there any patches that allow your infantry controls to have turn buttons? i cant stand running around with foward and strafe buttons but no turn buttons because the mouse doesnt allow u to turn properly like any other fps game. does anyone know why you cant have these or any way to let me know if there is a way to have these. thanks for your help

A:question about Battlefield 1942

Ok, you obviously don't have your controls setup properly. When I play BF1942 the controls are almost identical to that of CS, HL, Quake 3, UT.. etc. I'm guessing from what you said that you can't turn why you are pressing forward? There must be something setup incorrectly. Try setting the controls back to 'default' and seeing what happens. Hopefully that will solve it. However I can remember having a similar problem playing CS at a LAN cafe, where some computers just wouldnt let you turn while pressing forward. It was quite strange.
As for patches, make sure you have 1.31, other than that there isn't a patch to fix your particular problem.
Good luck.

I know all the drivers are updated to their newest versions from the NVIDIA website, so I doubt that it is a driver related problem.

Please Help!!

A:BattleField 1942 Uninstall

I made the same mistake, by friend made the same mistake...until I learned the trick of handling a BF1942 uninstall. Do you have any mods installed? The trick is that any mods that were installed have to be uninstalled first, before trying to uninstall the main program. Then it works fine.

Unfortuneately since you already tried to uninstall BF1942 first, you may not have any luck. When it happened to my friend we ran registry cleaners, deleted all instances of BF1942 that we could find and we still couldn't trigger the installer to behave normally again and ended up reinstalling Windows again to get it to work.

Hopefully you'll have more luck and find some less drastic solution.

It's about three and ahalf years old, scratch built but with a few pieces cobbled from the old PC, although those pieces are now mostly replaced. At first it was just Windows update that wouldn't work, although now it's almsot everything net related except for torrents, light browsing and automatic anti-virus updates. The internet works fine on my dads and sisters laptops, and my brothers phone, and i've just had to reformat and reinstall windows so I figure it must be a hardware problem. Could I need a new network card?

I have a copy of Battlefield 1942 and whenever i try to load an actual game (The game starts up ok and goes into ingame menus) the program closes for no apparent reason- no error messages or etc..

Has anyone got any idea why??? I thought maybe RAM but i have 128 installed and that is the minimum needed (According to the game) Thanks in advance Tom

yesterday, i bought battlefield 1942... it installed fine and i was playing it for quite some time, but after playing for about 10 hours, my computer decided to restart out of nowhere. i booted it back up to windows and everything was fine, until it restarted out of nowhere again, which was when i decided to go to sleep and give my pc a break by turning it off for the night (which i rarely do... my pc is usually on 24/7). when i woke up i turned my pc on and went to play BF1942 again, everything was smooth and operating fine for about 20-30 minutes until i got a blue screen, which has never happened on my computer before. so i turned off my computer and gave it about 10 minutes to "calm down", but now my monitor wont even show anything when i turn on the pc... the cd rom drive lights just flash and the power light/hard drive light are on, but idle.

my specs = Athlon Thunderbird 1.4GHz, 512mb PC-2100 ram, geforce4 ti4400 128mb, 40gb 7200rpm western digital hd

os = win2k pro

i checked the power supply using the green-black wire test and it works fine.

i dusted off and re-seated everything in the damn case aswell...

also... i have two brand spankin new AthlonXP 2200+ processors. my motherboard is an ECS K7AMA w/ the latest bios flash (which allows the AthlonXP field of cpus up to the 2200+)

i put one of the AthlonXP 2200+'s in, because i figured the processor may have died (there were no burn marks or anything on my old cpu, the thunderbird 1.4...) wh... Read more

A:Battlefield 1942 totally annihilated my pc

First off im not the brightest computer guy going i usually just play games too. I don't know if your Computer is alright or not but i do know this battle field 1942 was giving me problems too. When i was playing 1942 single player my monitor would shut off and the game would still be running and when i would turn my monitor back on it would say no sync. My graphics card is a geforce ti 4600 and my sound card is a soundblaster audigy gamer. It was driving me crazy i reinstalled everything and it still gave me problems. I had all the newest drivers for all my stuff except one thing the newest sound card drivers and so far so good after installing the sound card drivers i have had no problems since then thank god. So my advice to you would be update all of your drivers and see what happens that's what i did and i have been running fine since then knock on wood. Good luck bro i hope it works for ya.

I've got a P4 2.2 with 512MB memory and a Mobility Radeon 7500 with 32MB running XP Pro. This is a Compaq 1510US notebook that runs Desert Storm just great, but with 1942 it is slow as molassis.

Is this just something that is inherent in the game itself for this machine's configuration or have others seen a significant slow down like this on other configurations?
