Well I just tried the game and works well. One issue that many might hate is you need have origin running if you play the game. Here's a guide I found that allows you to run widescreen resolutions, the menu screen doesn't change, but in-game it does. Make sure your location that points to "Custom" is replaced with the User name you choose in the menu.

Thanks, OP!

Please have mod support, I miss Desert Combat - still one of the best multiplayer games of all time.


It supports mods

How does Origin work for free stuff like this? Is it like PSN, where you can DL it, but its not actually in your account history, so you dont really own it?

Same here. After playing 1942 on a friends pc I immediately went and bought a new computer that could play it. When BF2 released I built a new PC for it. And I continued the tradition by building a new PC last October leading up to the release of BF3.

Battlefield is what got me into and kept me into PC gaming.

Here's a link to a mod that somewhat improves BF1942 visuals:

http://www.moddb.com...high-definition

Here's a blurb about it:

The modification brings the following enhancements to Battlefield 1942:

  • Drastically increased view distances
  • Increased the rendering quality of the terrain
  • Increased the rendering distance of most vehicles
  • Most vehicles will stay on the map permanently when destroyed
  • Dead bodies remain for five minutes (you will rarely see them disappearing)
  • Added blood effects
  • Added third person view
  • Many more minor tweaks


I wish there was a high res texture mod or something, o well.

1943 is a hell of a fun game. I was so disappointed it never made it to pc. Got rid of my 360 a while back but it seemed as if you couldn't connect to a server half the time anyhow.

I might check this out but I do not have an Origin account. Thanks for the heads up.

I was always fond of the Forgotten Hope mod for BF1942. It added a tiny bit more realism to the game, but not too much, and also added tons of new vehicles. There were a few neat naval maps too, although they didn't work out too well unless you had a full game. They made a North Atlantic scenario with the Tirpitz and Prinz Eugen plus two U-boats vs. the Hood, some other British battleship, the Ark Royal and several destroyers. The disappearance of naval combat was one of the biggest losses is the Battlefield series.

I posted a thread in the PC forum. Maybe now that this game is free we could get a bunch of people on for a CAG playthrough.

No expansions. Just played it for an hour - brought back great memories. I just held off the entire Lutwaffe in Battle of Britian using our last remaining gun turret. Held out a long time before they finally got me. Scary that it has been 10 years already!

I'm surprised how well this game holds up. Largely thanks to the widescreen fix.

All the Battlefield games are just multiplayer or single player with bots. They only started to campaigns when Bad Company came out.


Thanks! I kinda thought that was the case but couldn't remember. I've only played Bad Company 1 so far (and own 2) and have zero interest in deathmatch, so I won't bother I guess.
