  • Battlefield 1942 - Mini-Image Help?

    Ok, so before people start accusing me of piracy, please clearly read this message.

    I save all of my purchased/legitimate cd-keys in a file on my webserver in the event that I lose the physical game. I've long lost my original copy of Battlefield 1942, so I decided to torrent the image files of the game. Keep in mind that I have a legitimate cd-key, and have played this game for many years in the past.

    Anyway, I install fine and get to the in-game server, however whenever I try to connect to a server (after updating to the latest 1.61b patch) I get 'failed to connect' immediately. I assume this is because of the 'mounted'-image from the original download.

    I remember in the past that mini-images (the small versions of the large files) for BF1942 worked fine with legit servers/keys.

    Is there anyway I can still play or will I need to go out and find a genuine disc? I have two legitimate BF1942 cd-keys so there's no reason I shouldn't be able to play.

    PM. me if necessary.

    The failed to connect will not be caused by the CD images. If they were a problem, it would give a "enter the correct disk" error when launching the application.

    I would check your firewall and any other Internet settings.

      The reason I mention the cd image/****** crack is because I read the faq over at planetbattlefield that read as follows:

      This seems to be the issue I'm having. I figured it might be an 'invalid cd-key', but that seems to be a different error message altogether.

      It very well could be a networking issue, I'll forward the proper ports when I get home later and see if that does it.
