Battlefield 1942 now free

Recommended Posts

Right now there are 3-4 servers FULL 24/24

More on the way from games.on.net, there is also PLENTY of 188ms USA servers to waste time on if you cant find a local.

Dedicated server files are also within the game directory, and with some mods working or TBA if working I'm sure by the weekend there will be some custom servers happening.

BustedHymen is my BF1942 name and Ill be playing a fair bit tonight after 6pm.

YAY!!!!! Now I'll have something to play haha

 

It would be really cool if it works with widescreen now as well, though that's unlikely

I'm in two minds. 1942 was a game I reminisce about as being one of the greatest games I've played, if I go back, it may spoil it for me :(

 

I wonder if Desert Combat mod is playing better than BF3 at the moment?

That's ok Unco Tomato. While we're all having fun playing it you can just sit there thinking about the old days.

Yeah, I had a lot of trouble doing it myself. I did get it to kinda work once, but wasn't great

I never got to play this online, it was only small LAN and bots.

 

Will definitely play this a bit tomorrow!

I thought I'd lost my interest when it came to online shooters...

 

I thought I'd become jaded...

 

It wasn't me..

 

unlocks, stats, grinding, lamery... What a wank! it was the kids who had it wrong all along...

 

What a blast.... ahhh memories.

Lol in b4 everyone installs this game and realises that they dont like it because its not modern. Its like people who give up on bf3 go back to bf2 and realise its old and just go back again.

 

Also welcome back Vanne.

While I partially agree, due to the different time frame and setting, BF1942 could still be quite entertaining, although its a shame that they didn't end up releasing 1943 on PC, as atleast thats on a newer engine.

LOL. Thankfully, I'm not one of those people. I bought Battlefield 3 premium when it went on "sale", after owning only the base game, and have not played it since then. The only thing I am having trouble with is the resolution, apart from that it's just as fun :-)

I'm usually pretty bad for not being able to go back to terribly aged gfx.

 

 

I'll let you know how long I last.

ive a fully boxed complete with expansions that I havent played so I dont need this free one. I want to get it fired up, might buy a 2tB and put all my games on that.

 

I need more "educational tools" (im studying games development)
