Special Force Online or SF was once a very popular game in the Philippines. Almost all Internet shops offer this game not to mention many players installed the game in their own desktop at home. My last encounter with the game was back in 2011 and today I stumbled upon on Special Force Online (SF) once more and I kind of curious on the status of the game. In the Philippines this game was handled by Gameclub when I first encountered it but to my surprise GameClub had given up the game. I came to know Special Force is now handled by this DF Interactive PTE LTD from Singapore which they also allow SF for Philippine Players.

Special Force won’t be going anywhere soon. Their recent tournament be happening next month. So Troopers!
Get ready and be part of the Gauntlet 4 Tournament. Registration starts on OCT. 30, 2011 and ends on NOV. 6, 2011.
First things first, Use this solution at your own risk. It fixed the issue but it might not fix yours since there are some possibilities that your computer have different settings.
Here’s my scenario. I have several computers and few weeks ago there is a SF patch which was automatically detected by the SF client when it was ran by some of our customers. Some computers loaded successfully while other computers starting to show unable to initilize error. I tried copying the entire folder (C:\Program Files\Dragonfly) from other working Special force folder and pasted to the PC that doesn’t work, I tried installing a new SF client from mygame download page, I tried using those cumulative patches but all FAILED. I also was surprise to see three folders that are related to Special Force Online. And its weird.
C:\Program Files\MYGAME\Special Force
C:\Program Files\MYGAME Launcher
I’m starting now to understand that the issue could be path related. Maybe some SF patch is pointing to folder Dragonfly while other patch points to MYGAME\Special Force. So, here are the steps I did to fix the Special force UNABLE TO INITIALIZE error. Forget the C:\Program Files\Dragonfly folder because I deleted it. You can keep yours maybe your SF needs it.
1. Install file Special Force Latest Full Client SFSetup_090511.exe
2. Copy all files inside C:\Program Files\MYGAME Launcher from other computers, from your friends PC or Icafe. Please note SF should be working on the source where you are copying the files. OR you can download it here
3. Extract or Put those files to your C:\Program Files\MYGAME Launcher
4. Then launch the SF client and wait for it to finish getting additional files. You can also download the cumulative Patch for faster update.
NOTE : If you are having a second thought, you may not download the mygamelauncher.rar. Please also understand I don’t work for mygame and so I cannot reply to all your inquiries. Feel free to post your questions on the comment field and lets hope other readers will/can help you.
I’m still getting a lot of messages and blog comments asking on how to download SF client. It seems that support from mygame.ph is not listening that much to their future SF gamers. Yeah! we know you guys have lot of players already but it won’t hurt your business to entertain more Special force Newbies.
I’ve been spending more and more hours playing Special Force this month. It’s really addictive and the challenge is always there since you meet different players with different warfare skills.
If notice there are also some updates on the Game shop. One of the newest updates is this Special Force Winter Gears. You can use your SP or ecoins to avail it.
