BF1942 Launcher

Post by MissileSilo » Sat Apr 26, 2014 7:09 pm

Hello,

Per Sjackson (Spencer)'s request, here is my BF1942 launcher. It allows you to select a player profile, and launch bf1942 directly to the server of your choice.

Version 0.0.1 has been attached. Let me know if you run into any problems with the application.

Best Regards,

MissileSilo

Missile, I downloaded the launcher, it opened it, then a box came up " Please Purchase WinRAR License". then I close that box and a folder and the launcher is there. I click on the launcher "Could Not Find Battlefield Directory". I use Windows Vista and use the Battlefield CD. Thanks

Hey Sjackson. Would you mind telling me where your Battlefield Directory is located? I've only tested the application with the Origin version of Battlefield 1942, which is probably why it didn't work. If you tell me the location of the Battlefield 1942 directory on your system, it would help in improving the detection of the location of the Battlefield 1942 directory.

Sjackson, I have improved the detection of the location of the Battlefield 1942 directory. Please upgrade to version 0.0.2 which is available at the BF1942 Launcher website:

Hi Izabak,

Thanks for trying out my launcher. I have released a new version of the app that I think will fix this problem. http://missilesilo.nfshost.com/bf1942-l ... wnload.php

May I ask you if you have a dual-monitor setup? Regardless, I think the new version of the app will not exhibit this problem. Please let me know if you still run into this issue.

Regards,

MissileSilo

I love your little utility and already find it very useful. A couple of requests for future versions (not sure if possible or not):

-Ability to mark servers as favorites
-Ability to add server by IP

Other than that, I think this is a great solution for the upcoming gamespy problem.

Thanks!

I just downloaded and ran the launcher. It worked just fine. A box opened up, identical to one shown in your post, and I selected the server and it took me there directly. That's how its supposed to work I guess. No issues.

I have heard of this Gamespy shutting down thing, and I couldn't understand how it'll affect us, but after some research, I know we wouldn't be able to open servers from in-game after 31st May, but that's all I know. So you saved us all!

Thanks a lot! :D

MissileSilo, it seems the program does not work for Windows Vista users. Both Roadrunner and Toonce have tried it and it force closes for them. They tried changing the compatibility mode to windows xp but still no luck. Not sure but is there anything you can do to get it working on Vista?
