Hey guys, I just bought BF1942, the on with all (expansion pack included) andiy still with no problems, and I can play single player easily. But when I try and play it online, whenever I double click on a server it gives me the message "error: wrong version do you want to update?" then it says yes or no, whichever one i click it just brings me abck to the server list. Ayone know what could be causing the problem?

Here, go here

If it's anything like Battlefield 2, it should actually be quitting the game and bringing up the website.

But yea, you have to update the game to play online. Go to that website and search for the correct version you need to have (I don't own BF1942 so I don't know which one you need).

If you're all up to date on updates, it is probably a user created map that you have to download from a website and put it somewhere in your BF1942 file before you can play on it.

It could be one of two things. I'm not sure if the game had any expansions or anything that would include extra maps, or like I said, it's probably a user created map.

Have you tried different servers running different maps? I'm not sure if BF1942 has rankings like BF2 and BF2142 has. If it does, try playing in servers that are ranked because they can only run official maps.

Okay so that seemed to have work, I now filter servers to "pure only" and that seems to have fixed it!

Thanks a lot for the help.
