only problem by this fix is that you need full system command and that wont go well by many that just login as user on windows we need a hacked exe at all cost

how ever i test the new master server its fast and very good

modified binaries here:

CD version:
files/bf1942-v1.61-nocd-widescreen-gamespy-fix.zip

Origin version:
files/bf1942-v1.612-no-origin-widescreen-gamespy-fix.zip

read the included txt files (these are prepatched versions with stuff like widescreen support, no origin client needed, etc)

for the test, you don't need to overwrite your bf1942.exe, just renamed the .exe to e.g. bf1942gs.exe before moving it into bf1942 dir and run it instead

i might eventually turn them into installers so it's even easier, we'll see

In case anyone is interested, I made a launcher app that shows the most populated BF1942 servers and lets you join a server directly from the app (bypassing GameSpy). The app also lets you switch between player profiles before joining a server.

The app is available here:

If we need to chip in to promote the server, or if we ally with others to form a promo group, let me know.

currently the replacement master list server provides only a small static list of servers, its current purpose is to test and catch any possible problems
support for dynamic server registration will be added shortly but since any bf1942 server can register itself only to an official gamespy server or to a replacement one (after modification to the server executable/hosts), i expect the servers to switch to the replacement server only when the official one goes down (unless they're keen to mess up with stuff like tee target of iptables)


it will be added this week

assholes at ea removed bf1942 from origin so i think its time you also made full bf1942 installer that has the fix exe
and road to rome and Secret Weapons all in one so we can still get new players to the game easy.

it was already free on origin so it's not a big deal to give it free all over the internet as full installer :roll:
