It's very simple to fix it.

Just create a shortcut of your normal game on your desktop. If you already have one, just make a copy and edit the target to look like this:

"D:\EA Games\Battlefield Vietnam\BfVietnam1920x1080.exe" +game Battlegroup42

Bear in mind my target will look a little different. But all you do is add an empty space +game Battlegroup42 and apply. :)

Target path not valid. It's ok. Maybe next time.

Add empty space it's imperative...

"D:\EA Games\Battlefield Vietnam\BfVietnam1920x1080.exe" +game Battlegroup42

The tiny empty space between the last inverted comma at .exe" and the +game is important.

Copy your shortcut and add the "+game Battlegroup42" in the path and that should fix it. We're waiting for you! :)

  6. Change the Target text as instructed by Iceskater above or click here to see the comment (Note: Iceskater said D drive but usually BFV is installed in C drive, so if your BFV is in C drive then change D:\EA Games... to C:\EA Games...)

    1651356371012.png
  7. You can follow the same steps to create shortcuts for other BFV Mods too.
Don't give up! If you see other players are online on that server, that means there is a way to get there. We are here to help.

Admins, this was a great event. Thank you for organizing it. Battlegroup 42 is a great Mod. Can Hello run this Mod as a Co-op server with Bots for a few weeks as trial?

I see that Hello's BG42 event server is gone, while Hello's Mission Possible server is still running but mostly empty.

Hello's Mission Possible server data:

Could these servers get more traffic as Co-ops?

Hello Al, I'm glad that you enjoyed it. ;) It was actually thanks to LTShaun. :)

I appreciate the suggestion, but as far as Co-op goes the most bots one will find under us is a handful on our 1942 server. As I mentioned, these modded events are on a popup server that is not going to stick around after the events end. This server is only used for such events and is otherwise kept offline.

If memory serves, I think that LTShaun actually wants to put up a server for BG42 etc. @LTShaun please correct me if I'm wrong here...I could have actually sworn there was at least one other server running this mod.

I keep Mission Possible around for a bit of fun now and then. Along with it being in on honor of Pipiska and his input on it. We use maps from it for events such as the ones coming up (SSM) that I can peacefully add to our main server temporarily. If players like them, then they are permanently there on our MP server.



Regards,
Ice

I took the server down due to inactivity but I'll put it back online ASAP and hopefully we can get a few players in there now and then. I'll run all maps in COOP and CONQUEST with map vote turned on that way players can choose to have bots or not.

Thank you, and FYI I suggest to turn off map voting during events like the last one. It was constantly being used even during excellent maps and intense battles going on during BG42 event. We started losing many players after frequent successful map vote changes. As soon as a new map started after a successful map vote change, within 5 minutes a new map vote was initiated. It breaks the game.

LT, is the BG42 COOP server online? I don't see it on Gametracker.

Sadly not yet, I will do my best to get it online by next weekend.
