  • BF1942:DC Help

    Okay, I just decided to get Desert Combat. I'd already updated BF1942 to the latest (1.6something) and simply downloaded DC_Final_0.8. I installed it, but when I try and play a single player map it crashes to dektop. No error message. When the map first starts loading (right before the crash) there is no background screen. It's all grey.

    I'm wondering if 0.8 was a patch and I should have gotten 0.7b first? I'm new to Desert Combat, but I've had Bf1942 for a while. Not sure what I should/n't be doing differently.

    Operating System: Windows XP Home Edition (5.1, Build 2600) SP2
    System Manufacturer: Dell Computer Corporation
    System Model: Dimension 4600i
    BIOS: Phoenix ROM BIOS PLUS Version 1.10 A12
    Processor: Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4 CPU 2.66GHz
    Memory: 510MB RAM
    Video Card: Intel(R) 82865G Graphics Controller
    Chip type: Intel(R) 82865G Graphics Controller

    I included the above information if it helps. Thanks.

    Yep. DC beta .7 was the last full version of DC. DC:Final is a patch.

    I did what you did, then tried just installing .7b over top of what I had, and then reinstalling the Final patch over top of that and it didn't work, so you might want to uninstall everything and start from scratch with this install...

      Okay, thanks. I'll uninstall Desert Combat then do over then.
