Anyone, please tell me what I'm doing wrong:

I downloaded the patch 1.22 over 1.21. Then I unzipped it. Then I attempted to play on line. It replies I'm rejected because I have version 1.21.

Suggestions anyone??

Where you trying to connect to UBI games ?

Hyperloby works though.

I went to the dedicated server site and used 3d Gamer. I followed their prompts and nada.
Is there somewhere else that is more certain?

Has it really installed? Does it show 1.22 on the Flash screen? Did you unzip in to the right H/D?

I wouldn't join any club that would have ME as member!

Verify tht you've unzipped it to the correct directory.

Hi

I too downloaded the same patch, When I try to install it nothing happened, apart from a dos window appearing very briefly, thinking it had installed I found i was still running V1.21.

In the end I opened the patch with winzip, unzipped the patch and installed all the files manually into the correct folders and now it shows as V1.22

Hi again

Just made a further observation. I have noticed that the patch in windows explorer appears with an icon of a DOS window, yet now having downloaded the big patch to install from a basic installation of FB it shows as a Winzip Icon. I get the feeling there maybe an iffy patch to download. I'll try downloading again from another site to see if there is any difference.

Did you accidentally download the server patch? It seems like that might be easy to do. Kinda confusing.. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

Hi

Redownloaded the patch from another site, completley identical regarding contents, file size etc and it now shows in explorer as a zip file as opposed to a DOS window and works perfectly, self installing the files into FB.

So basically if you have the same problem that I had check what type of icon you have for the patch in windows explorer. If it has a DOS icon then it will not self install, you have to manually open it with winzip and install the files yourself. Alternativly re download it. I used 3dGamers, Florida to get a good copy

i downloaded the 1.22 over 1.21 patch with a no go seeing the 1.22 version in game...

than i noticed that it was the server patch...

a quick look back at the download sites and i found the "correct" patch...

and voila.

of course, this was after a complete new re-install - DOH! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

Most probably it went in to wrong folder since the patches seem to install in the "program files" folder instead of the "program"folder where most have fb installed by default.



U only have to do it again and browse to your FB folder wich U probably will find in your program folder and then the Ubisoftfolder where u find FB. unzipp and its finished
