when i try to join games in the ubi.com game lobby, I get a popup that says I'm not compatible w/the host, although the host and I both have version 1.4. I have gr gold edition and just finished doing a complete uninstall/reinstall due to some other problems. While playing single player I can't resume my saved campaign w/o crashing to the desktop at mission start but I can start and save a whole new campaign, can anyone help me with either problem?

To guerrilla_man,

This the correct way to uninstall. Below that is the correct way to save game files if you do a uninstall and want to keep all saved game set-up and files. If you get that pop-up that says your not compatible then click yes to it and you should be right to go. Another reason why you may not be is the host is running mods you have not got installed IE: DARGM.48/4.9, HX4 etc etc.


GR Uninstall

First of go to your add/remove program and uninstall GR/UBI and then follow below and delete the GR/UBI folders

1-start/all programs/accessories/windows explorer/my computer/local disk(c)/program files/red storm entertainment

2-start/all programs/accessories/windows explorer/my computer/local disk(c)/program files/UBI.com

To start from scratch uninstall all of GR and UBI and at your own risk do this but first back it up.

(1) start/run and type this: regedit and press ok

Up the top click file/export and on the pop up window down the bottom where it says (save as type) click the drop down arrow and click on ALL FILES. Then select your location and save.

repeat step (1)

1- hkey_current_user/software look for any red storm entertainment folders and delete along with any UBI soft folders

now do this:

2- hkey_local_machine/software look for red storm entertainment folders and delete along with any UBI soft and UBI soft entertainment folders and delete

now do this:

3- hkey_LocalMachine/ software/ Microsoft/ windows/ current version/ uninstall directory there should be a folder here named "{D89EF3B3-6F17-4665-B7A9-A4235A6DC787}" with some Ghost Recon info in it so delete only the ghost recon related info.


Save GR Games

start/all programs/ accessories/window explorer/c:drive/programes file/red storm entertainment/ghost recon

1- Save folder inside data is used for saving your
keys for the game that you have set up.

2- Go into your mods folder, and take out the save
folder from MP1, MP2, and Origmiss.

3- Once you reinstall, just put these back in their
respective folders(overwriting the new ones) and
you'll be set.

Also copy all the files with the .xml extension and the missionstats.htm on the ghost recon folder.

If after restoring the saved folders/files, ghost recon don't work as expected (this can happen if you change the hardware after the backup), delete the options.xml in the ghost recon folder. Then start the game, go to the options and re-configure as needed

Ghost Recon .exe

Start/ all programs/UBI.com/ play online/ click login/

Under available games on the Ghost Recon click "Play Now" Under the heading "Multiplayer Lobbies" / "Retail" click Ghost Recon 1.

On the top right click "Options/ Lobby Settings/ Ghost Recon tab

Click Detect/ Auto-Detect recommended/ place a tick in the drive where GR is installed on your computer/ click start/ ok

New Campaign

To start a new campaign, click on the New Campaign button. This takes you to the New Campaign Screen.

At the upper left, you will see a text box. Type in the name of your new campaign here. It's a good idea to make it distinctive, to avoid any later confusion between saved campaigns.

Below the text box are your difficulty ratings: Recruit, Veteran, and Elite. Select one of these to set the difficulty for your campaign. Recruit offers unlimited ammunition for some weapons, as well as less skilled opponents. Veteran is standard game play, and Elite sets you up to face extremely skilled, lethal hostiles. Note that you cannot change difficulty levels within a campaign. If you begin a campaign at Recruit, you will have to start a new one if you decide that you're ready to tackle Veteran missions.

At the bottom left of the screen is a button labelled Cancel. This deletes your choices and takes you back to the previous (Campaign) screen.

At the lower right is a button marked Start. Clicking on this begins your campaign.

Deleting a Campaign

To delete a campaign, select it by clicking on it with your mouse, then click the Delete Campaign button. A dialog box asking if you wish to continue will appear. If you decide that you'd rather save the campaign after all, click No. If you do in fact want to delete the campaign, click on Yes. This will delete the campaign from your saved campaign list, and remove it from the list at the upper left of the screen. If you delete a campaign, any individual games you've saved as part of that campaign are deleted as well.

Resuming a Campaign

If you have saved campaigns, the Resume Campaign button will be available to select. (If not, it will be greyed out.) A list of your saved campaigns will appear in the box above the buttons. To resume one, select the campaign you'd like to play, then click on Resume Campaign. This will take you to the Campaign Mission Screen.

1. First, try uninstalling the Game Service from the add/remove programs icon in your control panel. Once that's done, download the set-up file from http://gamingzone.ubisoft.com/packages/GameService.exe and reinstall the new version of the game service. If this doesn't work go to # 2.
2.Create an incident with us here and I'll send you a file that will remove all of the registry entries for the game service, and you'll be able to reinstall it. Please make sure that you change the category to "Ubi.com Game Service," or it will take me forever to find it.
