Sorry to bring this thread back from the dead, but I've just fixed the same problem you where having.

It seems you need to have all four 1942 .zip files to play any of the games with DS1942, if 1942 is not lit up then you have that one missing and none of the other games will start.

I have all 4 and all are lit up but for all of them I find I have a file missing. I've tried loads of options but nothing works.

Have a look at this DS1942 page, it's got a box with details of the files you need including the exact name and number of files that should be in each archive file.

Took me ages, but I tested this a couple of days ago so I know they are correct.

Thanks. After finding another site I found all the 1942a zips I had were wrong. I found a good one. Then I found that all the files in my 1942.zip and 1942b.zip had to be renamed. After renaming 32 files all 4 versions work.
I'm tempted to enter the actual file names of each zip on that Wiki. I'm sure there must be others with the same problem.
