Battlegroup42 Night on -=NC=-Bar & Grill
1st & 3rd Tuesday of every month – 9PM EST
126.96.36.199 : 14567
Anyone who has some free time on Tuesday nights should consider stopping by the Bar & Grill for some BG42 1.3. Were doing it the 1st and 3rd Tuesday of every month. Very Happy
Well have a fun lineup of maps in the rotation: a mix of NC infantry-only favorites, some tank battle maps and some new maps from 1.3. After a few runs through the maps well refine the map rotation to everyones liking.
Im coordinating with |GRB|Sarge to post the monthly BG42 schedule in the several different forums so we can all meet up and enjoy BG42 on a populated server, one that will give decent pings to us folks in North America.
Make sure you upgrade to the latest version which is 1.3. The 3 files you need are pretty big, but VERY worth it!!!

I know our friends over at the Napalm Cowboys Clan are running BG 1.3 on their “-=NC=- Bar and Grille” server. IP is 188.8.131.52 so go and give it a try.
From the Battlegroup 42 Website:
Rejoin the war in Europe and the Pacific with Battlegroup42 for BF:1942! The Battlegroup42 team releases the next update to the original Battlegroup42 mod including 16 new maps, a readjustment of the Tiger, IS-2 and Panther-D to BG42 1.0 values, many numerous fixes to armor, AI, and weapons – including further adjustments to the AT weapons and map corrections and balancing of previous BG42 maps.
15 New Maps: The update includes 15 maps from the map makers at Clan MOB, including 9 never-seen-before maps, 2 modifications to classic BF maps, and Battlegroup42 adaptations of 4 maps from the EA Match Map Pack. (The EA Match Map Pack is required to play these last four maps. You can get the pack from EA.) Screenshots from these maps have been shared in earlier news postings, but in addition to screenshots already shown, there are some new ones from Operation U-Go, the last map added to the update.

The Tofu Hut has posted what I do believe is the mother lode for anyone looking for blog sites about music and that feature MP3s. There is something there for everyone and more. Check it out, I know I am going to.
Thanks to BoingBoing for the link. They got if from this guy.
Its no secret that we at Gamers Radio are huge Battlefield fans. Beyond that, we are big fans of all the mods available for Battlefield. Even after playing the game since the beginning, we always find something new to amaze us because of all the great mods available for Battlefield 42 and Battlefield Vietnam. They have provided us hours well beyond our original investment in the game and for that we are grateful.
With the upcoming release of Battlefield 2, we are looking to the mod community to extend the playability of what we hope will be a great game. Without the support of the mod community, it would be just another game, but through the hard work of these selfless guys, gamers like us get to have more fun than the original developers intended.
So, the question that was on our minds was what great BF42/BFV mods are moving their project to BF2 when its released? We emailed a bunch of mods and probably missed more than we wanted, but these guys took the time to answer our questions and provide us a hint at what to expect in the future. We hope you enjoy these mini-interviews.

In anticipation of the release of BF2, we decided to do a GRB BF42 Custom Map Blowout. Some of these maps have been previously released, while several of them are never before seen maps by our members. These maps have not gone through our normal testing procedure, but it would be a shame to never release them for everyone to enjoy.
So join us for Friday Night Fights on February 25th for a BF42 Custom Map Blowout. From the plane madness that is Pilot School to the intense ground pounding action of Fields of the Fallen to the Skull inspired Curse of Skull Island to the multilevel action of House of Hellsing and the unforgettable forest of Ghost Front. We promise there will something for everyone. The action starts at 7pm CST and goes until the early morning.

Fields of the Fallen | House of Hellsing | Ghost Front | Dunes | Infiltration
Pilot School | Down The Barrel | Curse of Skull Island
Special thanks goes to |GRB| LoU-Cipher, |GRB| GreatXScott and |GRB| Raze for putting the time and effort into making these maps. Many thanks go to all the |GRB|â€™s that have helped test the maps, promote the custom map events and for giving Battlefield 1942 just a little more reason to be the best Battlefield game ever. As always, thanks to |GRB| ephil for putting together this kick ass installer program that makes it so easier to install custom maps.
One last thing, EA/DICE, Get off your asses and give us a way to deliver custom maps via the game. People want custom maps, but there needs to be an easier way to get them into the game. It would be in your best interest to make this happen. The Custom Map Community deserves more support than you are giving us.
The Forgotten Hope mod has released some more information on their upcoming update. Among other things, they have added the M4A1 Sherman (75mm cannon) in British (shown below) and American colors, as well as the M4A1 that was upgraded with a 76mm cannon to make it a larger threat to the heavier German armor. They have also done some work on the “Battle of Foy” map including adding a snow effect.

Ever wonder how they do it? You know, the guys who seem to wield a tank like an iron fist. You got them out numbered, but they manage to take you out like a can of sardines under a sledge hammer. Well, here is your chance to get even. We have a top notch Forgotten Hope player ready to teach you all he can about the various tanks in Forgotten Hope and how to use them properly. He lives and breaths this stuff. I cant say for sure, but Id be willing to bet he has full size replicas of these bad boys in his backyard. 🙂
