DLC's in Field of Glory

Post by sull51 » Sat Dec 31, 2016 8:22 pm

I recently purchased 3 additional DLC for Field of Glory I have previously installed on my computer the old version of Field of Glory (1.81) and the new version (2.5.02)
I was under the impression that all DLC except the last two would work in the old version, and all the DLC’s would work in the new version. The DLC tell me I need the latest version to activate them even if they are installed on the old version of the program. The new version 2.5 is a programming disaster that makes the game virtually unplayable Is there a way to activate DLC on the old program (1.81)?

Does your 1.8.1 game launcher screen have a button named "Serials..." or "Register Army Pack Serial"?

When I click on the start icon I bypass the illustrated game screen where other than in game choices "Check for updates" is listed. When I press that I get an error message
"Network Connection Error (code 1)
The version is 1.8.1

http://ftp.eu.matrixgames.com/pub/Field ... p-v181.zip
2. Unzip the download file. Run the extracted file to update the game

D. Once you've done this you can proceed with the unlocking of your expansion packs:

1. Double click the Field of Glory game icon (launcher) in the desktop
2. Click the "Serials…" button
3. Select the expansion pack you wish to unlock
4. Enter serial number for expansion pack
5. Select "Enter Serial"
6. Repeat the steps for each expansion you might have

Sorry I put you through all that typing! I solve the problem by going into the directory of the old game and began opening application flles until I found one that was similar to the illustrate screens above which allow serials to be added The file was called "fog" added back on 2/11
