Just found out that this game has come back to life and very excited to get back into those 1v1's again, sweet right, well my only problem is i can't join any games/lobbies and when i try an error message pops up saying "they are playing on a different version - different version error". But I have the latest patch version 1.04 and i did everything right and the game runs well and i connect just fine but just need this one issue resolved then i'm golden :)

I am guessing that that is Zero Hour. If you don't run the game as Administrator and with Windows XP SP3 compatibility, you will experience that issue. Did you do that?

Are you using Gentool (as you should be)? What version of the game do you have (origin, disk etc)?

The important question: Where did you obtain your copy of the game?

 

If you are running GenTool, what does it say in the lower-left corner of the screen, as the game starts up?

 

If it says, "Modified Game Install: Not compatible with Regular Game" you won't be able to join other rooms, no matter what modes you run the game in.


Ask me anything and I'll see if I can give an answer.
