BF1942 1.4 Patch out

This is the official 1.4 patch for Battlefield 1942. It includes tons of cool fixes and additions and should push BF1942 to new heights.

For a starter you will notice that sounds have been improved considerably in 1st person view such as increased volume of impacts, louder grenade explosions and a new sound for the Axis Assault rifle STG44. The scoreboard has been enhanced as well and now shows current server’s name, IP address, map name and each player’s ID number. Surprisingly there’s also a blood effect for additional feedback when you are hitting another soldier. Until now BF1942 was quite conservative in that respect.

Other changes include a fixing of the Tank Repair exploit (tanks will no longer be able to make repairs in the airplane hanger) and other cheats as well as two new guns: The DP 1928 and the Type 99.

Let’s see if they’re keep with their habit of upgrading the SD protection…

I believe that was the leaked (Japanese) version of the 1.4 patch since it is now gone. Just as EA had leaked the 1.3 patch (Taiwanese).

Conspiracy++

First they said that it was the official patch but then they changed their minds… Oh well, it’s working great and lots of servers are playing it so what the hell :slight_smile:

official one out. Just tried it. Blood splatter & new guns. :slight_smile:

Yes they fixed quite a lot in this patch, haven’t tried it out yet but it sounds great! I bolded the ones that make me happy :slight_smile:

OTHER ISSUES

Content check currently only works with official Battlefield 1942 and RTR
files/maps. If you try to run a server with a user-created map/mod installed
and turn content check on, clients might not be able to join.

If you try to connect to a Road to Rome server that is running a Road to
Rome map and you don't have Road to Rome installed, you will see a "data
differs from server" message.

1.4 patch works great.
don’t know if it changes the SD protection, but both my BF:1942 and Road To Rome backup disks work perfect still.

Anyone who haven’t tried it yet, download Eve of Destruction 11% demo, it’s the coolest mod out there! Far better than DC!
