  • Can't load EF maps after installing AF

    Since I installed Armored Fury this afternoon, I'm getting the "unmodified content" error message when I try to load an EF map. Is anyone else experiencing this? Do I have to start all over with a clean install?


    The time for calm and rational discussion has passed. Now is the time for senseless bickering.

    Similar question.

    What is the S.O.P. for connecting to the sever once you install the two boosters. Do you need to log into your EA downloader? Is it just as simple as clicking on the sever before?

    Also, I instaled the EU a month ago from the EA website for 10 dollars US. To get AF i just do the same thing again right?
    I'm not a computer person. I'm more of a cyborg person. I guess i was born before my time.

      Reinstall the full 1.3 patch. Its dumb on EA's part but files from EF have been updated since they released the booster and as far as I know they haven't actually updated the initial download.

        My best impression of Gary Sinise in the move "Ransom" the part after he talks about the Time Machine movie. That was creepy stuff.

          Didn't work. Any other suggestions?

            That's strange. You did the FULL 1.3 patch? I had the exact same problem after installing the EF mod today, and the full patch did the trick.

            3) Support game play in a near-simulation environment. Where the focus of play would not be solely on doing what it takes to win, but doing so utilizing real-world combat strategy and tactics rather than leveraging exploits provided to players by the design of the game engine.

              Yep, did the full patch. I should have pointed out that the AF maps load just fine, but the EF maps no longer work.

                I downloaded AF and then applied the Full 1.3 Patch last night. When I connect to the server, or try rather; I'm getting mapnotauthorized message.....

                I suspect that's because my in game id isn't matching my ea id that i used to buy with. How would I change that? I've searched up and down and I cannot find out where that resides....I suspect that will fix my problems.

                  Are you logged into the downloader? Is your nickname exactly the same?

                    Tempus .. I think the nicks are the issue. For others ... I found this other post here on TG regarding some of the issues with EF shortly after I posted on changing the id's to match...

                    Mine is related to AF but I found a single link off of google looking for this issue, and it talked about changing the in game ids to match.

                    My message is mapnotauthorized when I try loading it up on the server... I search TG and here ------->

                      Re: Can't load EF maps after installing AF

                      I still can't run the EF maps, but I can run the AF maps. I had to change my nick at EA before the AF maps would run. In short, I still don't have a solution. Reinstalling 1.3, changing my nick, nothing worked.

                      Any more suggestions?

                        Nothing short of a full reinstall, really.

                          Wouldn't you have to install 1.3 again after that?

                            Shouldn't, because AF was built on 1.3 and doesn't modify 1.3 files.. The process will change when 1.31+ comes out.
