    just a note on this before you go off and download. The AEF wide 1942 event that we'll be hosting shortly will be just for 1942 only. It is reported that if you download and install the 2 other mods, the vanilla 1942 won't be compatible with you.

    So, just 1942 at this stage.

    Hi guys,

    A few of us (me, goldy, Sinbad, sars, zed) have been playing a bit of late (re-living the old days) the best ping server we have found is about 250ish. What has surprised me is how many Aussies and Kiwis from the old days we have bumped into just from them recalling our old names in game. Their old clans included ATA, DOW, TOG, NZSAS, inb.

    Now my thoughts are we may get 20 to 30 AEF lads on for a night and opening it up for one night might get another 5 to 10 public players that stumble on a low ping server for that night, however, if there is a way for AEF to host a 1942 server for a month, giving the locals a home for a small period then the chances of increasing the pub player numbers to 10 to 20 would make a great night. I've chatted ingame to the lads i've met telling them to check our forums for the 1942 bash and they will pass the word onto those they kept in contact with. I can also post on the available forums that are still running to cast the net wider.

    Is hosting a server an option for a small window of time?? and see what interest follows??

    I'm just brain storming here so thoughts?

    Cheers for the heads up Klink, I would've installed them all otherwise.

    Will indeed be epic to have a server up and running, any idea on a timeframe?

    SnR - I had some similar issue but mine 'fixed itself' by just trying to run the .exe again

    The game also crashed on first launch after install, but opening from the bf1942.exe directly worked fine.

    I recon it will be more fun trying to work it out on the fly.

    You tried running the installer as Admin I assume so looks like you may need to D/L
    it again.

    unless anyone else has any ideas

    Guy's.. The "AEF BF1942 Social Event" is in the process of server setup and testing, which is being organized by the AEF Admin as we speak.

    Sure, jump in and have a practice if Irish has a test server up.. but ATM just try to hang in there a we bit longer re this AEF wide social event
    and keep an eye out for the official announcement on the AEF front page, which will give all the details on where, how and when it will be held.. soon.
