View Full Version : Battlefront 1942

I'm having trouble LANing Battlefield 1942. I've got it on two computers, they both have the same patch, but when I try to join in a game created by the other comp, it says "Data differs from server". I'm not sure what to do.

EDIT: Sorry, messed up on the title.

Its been a while since Ive played BF42 but I do believe what that error means is the client's map data differs from the server's map data somehow.

The easiest way to get the same map on both computers is to copy the server's maps over to each of the clients. I cant remeber the exact file path to the maps, do a search or one of the map names like "midway". There should be two files associated with all the maps, copy them all over. The other solution is reinstalling BF42 on all machines...not fun.

Thanks riqyn, I'll see if that works.

EDIT: Hmm, still not working. I really don't want to reinstall the game. Ugh.

I don't know how BF1942 handles this type of situation, but it may not allow you to play multiplayer if 2 or more copies are using the same CD key.
