So I've been trying on and off for a couple months now to get a working copy of BFME 1 to no avail.
I managed to use this one to get as far as downloading the launcher, all of the patches, and mounting the game in daemon tools. However, every time I try to boot up the game through the official launcher I get stuck at the splash screen and nothing happens. In attempting to launch from t3a launcher I get an error that tells me I cant launch BFME 1.
I have attempted to launch official launcher as administrator to the same effect, and I've uninstalled and reinstalled three times. I haven't attempted trying all the patches one by one because I'm not certain if it requires me to uninstall certain aspects. Also I tried the options.ini text file fix, but I am uncertain if I did it right.
I am only interested in getting BFME 1, and I would really appreciate some help.
