    Many people want to play BF1942. And as always: many people get qeustions about: 'how do I do this?', and 'why is this not that?'.
    To get all you folks playing this great game, I'll post a nice help file to get everyone of you on-line.
    Feel free to update my remarks.

    PS: excuse my English. I'm dutch and my guess is that my english is not that good these days.

    Have fun!




    I've heard a lot about BattleField 1942, but I'd like to play a demo. Is there a demo available?

    Ofcourse there is a demo! Surf to http://www.ea.com/eagmes/official/ba....jsp?state=111
    Beware, there is also a patch (version 1.1) available on the same link.

    Where can I find the official Battlefield site?

    http://www.ea.com/eagames/official/b...d1942/home.jsp

    Why does BF1942 crash to the desktop when I start the game up?

    Probably you have installed a refreshrate tool. Deinstall this tool or try the refreshlock-tool :http://www.pagehosting.co.uk/rl
    Also change the commandline in a file by hand: go to the install directory of BF1942, go to the Settings directory and open VideoDefault.con with Notepad. Search for the commandline: renderer.allowAllRefreshRates 0 and change the 0 into a 1. If the 1 is already there: no change.

    How can I see my refreshrate (FPS) in BF1942?

    Open console with ~ and type: console.showfps 1
    Change the1 into a 0 and the framecounter is out

    In the game I can barely see anything, only some blurry bleu/greyish textures

    Probably your videocard does not have T&L support, most common for the TNT1 and 2 cards.

    WTF, all the lead I shoot to the enemy does not hit anyone!

    Watch your visor. The longer you shoot, the more bullets will spray. If you choose to shoot, shoot in bursts. For more effective shooting: try to kneel or to lie down.

    Well, I'm in a boat or something, and I want to go on shore. How do I do that?

    As operator of the boat, use your up/down arrow to open the boat

    When I'm flying I sometimes feel the urge to get out. How do I do that?

    First leave the plane on the same way you got in (default E). Than open your chute (default 9). Sometimes the chute does not open the first time, so press 9 a little bit more

    I love the game, but I hate the teamkillers. How to deal with them?

    I know this is an irritating part of the game, and although shooting back looks nice, it does not solve the problem. The more attention they get, the more irritating they get. Try to kick them out of your game. But.. how?
    First you have to know what ID the have. You can see that in the console (~) and type: game.listplayers
    After that type in the following command to ask for a vote to kick a player: votekickplayer ID (where ID is the number you found at game.listplayers)
    You can also use the following command: game.votekickteamplayer ID
    With this option only your team can vote to kick a person
    BEWARE: always say why you want to kick a player. In this way you show to other players there is a spoiler in the game.

    How do I rip the videos out of BF1942?

    Go to your BF1942 directory and to directory movies. If you want you can delete all the files in here, or rename the files. Beware: the file 'background.bik' is the animation within the menus, so please do not delete or rename this one.

    Are there any alternatives for GameSpy?

    Yes there is, a very known program is The All Seeing Eye: http://www.udpsoft.com/eye

    I hear rumours about a patch!

    That is true, the latest patch is Version 1.1. You can download it at http://www.ea.com/eagames/official/b....jsp?state=111
    Version 1.2 is in the making, but not available yet.

    WHEEEE!! I had a great action, how do I make a screenshot of that?

    The deafult key is PRTSCN. Every push on that one will make a screenshot in the screenshots map (in your BF1942 directory)

    Loading times are slow @ my PC!

    Probably you have 256Mb or less. Pelase upgrade to 512Mb or more

    When I enable sound, I get a drop in FPS!

    It looks like this issue is created by the default SB Live! or Audigy drivers that come with Windows XP. Please upgrade the drivers @ http://www.creative.com

    What Detonator drivers are the best?

    Well, that is a good question. Personaly I do not have any problems with the 40.xx series. They are BETA drivers, so if you don't feel good with them, take the 30.82 WHQL drivers. If you decide to use the 40.xx version, make sure that you de-install your old ones. The experience is that the 40.xx driver range greatly improve the T&L performance on Geforce 4 cards. Drivers can be found at: http://www.nvidea.com

    I'd like to set up a server. Can anyone help me?

    At http://www.bfcentral.com/server_faq.php is a very good helpfile

    hmm have yet to play it. And I do not know if I will have time any time soon. I have WC3 to play, and GTA3 on the way. Then by the time I am done with those, age of mythology is coming out. I do not really want to play this, but some of my friends are big into the age series....so I will probably be playing that a bit! hehe
    cannot wait for GTA!

    hehe same here. I will wait till comes out on PC. My roomate has a playstation, but I do not feel like shelling out 50.00 so he can play it...and I never get a chance, b/c he is playing it or watching TV.

    I swear, all my roomate ever does is watch TV. All day and all night! hehe
