Hi,

I just did a fresh install of 1946, patched up to 4.07m, then 4.08m and when I try to start up a game in Hyperlobby, I get this error message:

"This application has failed because RTS.DLL was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem."

Does anyone know how to fix this?

Cheers!

Thats the copy protection DLL. Threads discussing it in too much detail tend to get locked.

Also you are better off posting in the help forum.

Hmmm, well the RTS.dll was the copy protection used with all versions of IL-2 prior to 1946. I believe that the .dll tells the il2.exe or il2fb.exe to look for the CD-ROM and use that to launch the game.

I think 1946 made the rts.dll completely obsolete though. The European version uses SecureROM I believe, and the U.S. version simply allows you to launch from desktop without needing the game's disc in your player. The UbiSoft e-commerce version is the North American version.

I was able to use Hyperlobby with the North American version of 1946, installed directly from the DVD. I didn't have to add or replace the rts.dll to do it either.

Are you sure you selected the Forgotten Battles room in hyperlobby?
