Did I miss something somewhere ? DC no longer will load

Archived from groups: alt.games.battlefield1942 (More info?)

I had a nice working BF42 and DC_Final. I had played on-line in the last 3
months (thought I played bot games every so often) and I see the 1.61b patch
is out and I applied it. Not I can no longer run DC_Final. I can play
regular BF42 all I want. But if I try to join an Internet game or just
create my own lan game, by initial splash screen is all Gray and the game
crashes to Desktop on about the 50% load mark.

I've done the usual reload of the game, but it seems that DC_Final and 1.61b
don't like each other Or am I missing something obvious ?

Thanks

    They like each other OK.

    The usual cause of these symptoms are corrupt (custom) maps or other files
    in the archive directory, or screen driver problems.

    Thanks for the response, I'm not sure what happened with the original
    install, but on the re-installs I was spaced out and forgot to put DC 7 on
    first and then DC final.
