R.I.P BF1942. Started it up today and freezes when I attempt to update the server list. Looks like Gamespy is finally dead....
Not a big deal as long as you still have a serverlist.dat file in your profile. The old servers still work if their IPs haven't changed. But updating the list at all will require a hacked exe that points to a new master server list server.
Still have a lag problem though. My internet connection is fine, but every 20 seconds I have at least 2 seconds of connection problems. It just hangs there for two seconds and then continues. Really annoying when I'm flying a plane or when I encounter an enemy up close (which results in me being killed right after). When the spike is over, everything runs fine and I have a really low ping.
So, I've got a clean install of BF1942. My game keeps randomly crashing on windows 7 64 bit. Sometimes when playing, sometimes when loading a map after a map restart and sometimes when I'm connecting to a server.
I've tried running the .exe as admin and using the windows xp mode.. no luck.
