BF1942 maps

Postby Gowain » Thu 05 Aug, 2004 00:38

Lo all, tried to connect to the desert rats server tonight after downloading and installing verion 1.6. When i tried i got a message saying that i didnt have the map, one example was Omaha Beach - 1944, so i was wondering if these maps can be downloaded, and if so where can i find them?

Thanks in advance

Tuesday, Yesterday and Today the Desert Rats Server is set to play the mod Forgotten Hope, thats why it says you don't have the map ;)

You shouldn't need to download any extra maps for Battlefield 1942 :)

Yeah, as Lu said, the Forgotten Hope mod has a whole bunch of new maps which are used exclusively with that mod.

I'd only recommend downloading it if you have access to broadband though, as it's about 1gig in size i believe... ;)

but its fun if you're pc can handle it
it adds a rough 40 new maps or reworked old one's
tons of new tanks/vehicles/planes/ships
realistic velocity of tank shells (they go straight)
realistic damage values (if some1 shoots you in the chest with a rifle you're dead instead of taking 66% damage)
new weapons. artillery.
realistic tanking versus tanking (king tiger rapes every american tank into submission)
4 shermans confronting a kingtiger head on will leave 4 smoking sherman wrecks

this mod is all about surviving and outflanking/outmanuevering/outhinking youre opponents

it will take dozens of shots to the front of the king tiger to kill it.
but if 2 of your teammates keep it busy you can sneak up and give it one up the ass for example :-).

teamwork is key with this mod and thats why i like it :)

It comes in chunks, 600MB and 500MB.

As you are just starting out in BF 42 and I'm a nice guy (even though you killed me twice in a row the other night) I could put them on CD and post them. (took me about 2-3 hours on a 1MB connection to download).

As Alpha says, the Forgotten Hope MOD is awesome, much harder with loads of new maps and stuff.

Might be better getting practice on vanilla BF for a while as FH 6.2 is due out soon and it is going to be a case of scrubbing 6.1 and doing a full re-install of the new one! I'll try and find out when it's due, if it's in the next month I'll wait until then before posting if that's okay.

Keep it up Gowain, try and post some stuff in DR forums as recruitment is by invite only but being WOR you've got a good chance. ;)
