    Can’t get the launcher to install or work properly?

    This workaround is intended to get you connected without using the launcher for graw2 only
    We need to change some setting in windows to allow you to edit the host file

    Show file name extensions:
    Open Folder Options by clicking the Start button/Control Panel.
    Go to Appearance and Personalization/Folder Options.
    Click the View tab, and then, under Advanced settings, clear the Hide extensions for known file types check box, and then click OK.
    Note: Once you have connected to the GRC network and you can join graw2 servers? you can revert this setting back by selecting the Hide extensions for known file types check box, and then click OK again.

    Edit the host file in windows:
    Go to:  C:/Windows/System32/drivers/etc/
    Copy the host file to your desktop and make another copy and put it in your documents folder in case you mess up.
    Rename the host file on your desktop from “host” to “host.txt”.

    Now open it up, it should look something like this:

    
    # Copyright (c) 1993-2009 Microsoft Corp.
    #
    # This is a sample HOSTS file used by Microsoft TCP/IP for Windows.
    #
    # This file contains the mappings of IP addresses to host names. Each
    # entry should be kept on an individual line. The IP address should
    # be placed in the first column followed by the corresponding host name.
    # The IP address and the host name should be separated by at least one
    # space.
    #
    # Additionally, comments (such as these) may be inserted on individual
    # lines or following the machine name denoted by a '#' symbol.
    #
    # For example:
    #
    # 102.54.94.97 rhino.acme.com # source server
    # 38.25.63.10 x.acme.com # x client host
    

    Add the lines after any other lines of text that might be in your host file so it looks like this:

    # Copyright (c) 1993-2009 Microsoft Corp.
    #
    # This is a sample HOSTS file used by Microsoft TCP/IP for Windows.
    #
    # This file contains the mappings of IP addresses to host names. Each
    # entry should be kept on an individual line. The IP address should
    # be placed in the first column followed by the corresponding host name.
    # The IP address and the host name should be separated by at least one
    # space.
    #
    # Additionally, comments (such as these) may be inserted on individual
    # lines or following the machine name denoted by a '#' symbol.
    #
    # For example:
    #
    # 102.54.94.97 rhino.acme.com # source server
    # 38.25.63.10 x.acme.com # x client host

    192.210.241.54      gpcm.gamespy.com
    192.210.241.54      gpsp.gamespy.com

    Now close the host.txt file on your desktop and rename it to “host”
    Go to C:/Windows/System32/drivers/etc/
    Delete the “host” file in C:/Windows/System32/drivers/etc/ and replace it with the one you just created from your desktop
    Now go to start, type cmd, hit enter. In the CMD window type in:  ipconfig /flushdns

    You should now be able to see and join a graw2 server on the Gamerecon network.

    Update your host file with the IP and domain information as stated above then run graw2 without the launcher to join a server.

    let me know how you go

    No problem, I like to help.

    AFGM run a TDM on friday nights called bootcamp but you might need to join their forum and ask if you may join the server
