STEP 3: BF2141 Redirects
In order to play, your game needs to be able to connect to a master server to bypass the login screen and to see the available servers.
What you use depends on what works best for you, but you ONLY need to do one of these options.
*** Before applying any redirects, make a backup copy of your BF2142.exe and your RendDX9.dll so you dont have to reinstall the game***
If you change between redirects, make sure to undo your previous redirect. That's the reason for your backups.
