@Jayballs Forget the ISO. Forget the virtual drive.

Download the game via the Mega link below then run BFME from the EXE (See screenshot for reference!sfhkxLSC!17zQeE1epqf8sbw19h4aww6zvG5mbXnWctYN5qWvVdk

I installed the game and everything looks good but I when I launch it and click play it says I need to insert the CD. I used daemon tools lite to mount the image but it still gives me the same message. Anyone have a similar issue?

@TOBI Stahoval jste BFME prostřednictvím možnosti stahování v horní části této stránky nebo prostřednictvím odkazu Mega, který jsem zde uvedl v komentářích?

Zkoušel jsem hru z mega odkazu zpátky a funguje to dobře. Stačí je spustit z exe (viz obrázek níže).

The "code" is the games CD Key.

Try the following CD Keys below...

Alright I have it downloaded but it's asking for a code. What do I need to do to make it work?

Apple 2018-01-17 -3 points

i can´t get it to work i have download the game but it says that i need a code but i do not have one so how do i do

I've uploaded the full BFME game folder to Mega (Link below) for any who are having trouble. This took me over 12 hours just to upload so feel free to reupload the game to Mega or any similar site.

The game folder is compressed into a .zip so you'll need a program like WinRaR or 7zip (Just run the game from the launcher and it should work fine).

You also don't need a DOS emulator for this. It works fine for me without one.

Great game thanks! One of my favorites and been looking for it awhile. Be sure to use an ISO reader to mount the disk to virtual drive. Then run it on autoplay. I use Ultra ISO. Back to second breakfast, Peace!
