First, they announced the winner of their mapping contest. The winning map was Nuenen-1944 by Mars. For his work, The mod team will create a new static model and vehicle for Mars to use on a new map.

Desert Combat Final Reviewed

The people over at Amped Gaming News have posted a very good review of the recently released Desert Combat Final.

“The Desert Combat community has finally received the release they have been waiting for. The release of Desert Combat Final is the first release of Desert Combat since the DC 0.7 release on February 7th. The name Desert Combat Final lets everyone know that the developer team wanted to finish the mod, and make it perfect. If I was to list all the changes in the update you would be reading for days. In short just about everything has changed, and for the good. There is lots of new maps, vehicles and weapons. Also the lighting and sound of the game has changed drastically. Below we take a look at all the new things that were added, as well as the graphics and sound of the latest and last release of Desert Combat.”

BF42 Friday Night Fights – Custom Map Night

We need your help. Gamers Radio and The BF Conversion Team have joined forces to test BF42 map candidates for inclusion in the Official BFV WWII Mod (Extended). This mod is currently converting all, yes all, the standard maps from Battlefield 1942 to the Battlefield Vietnam game engine.

The goal is to include 10 custom maps in the official release. Custom maps are a big part of the BF experience and we want to show our appreciation by including some of the best custom maps BF42 has to offer. Before deciding which 10 maps to use, we want to play them. After all, the most important factor is how much fun is it to play the map online.

This is your chance to frag the Gang at Gamers Radio and meet the Developers of the Official BFV WWII Mod (Extended) for BFV. Not to mention, play the best of the best in custom maps for Battlefield 1942 before they are converted to Battlefield Vietnam.

Here is your map line up.

304 Fields of the Fallen | GRB Ghost Front | Battle for Bastonge | Ruhr Valley
Corsica | Battle for Rome | China Sea | Midway 2000

Date: October 15th
Time: 7pm CST until we get tired of playing.

Location: United States
Server: |GRB|
Port: 15567

Map Pack: Registration Required

Most Importantly, Spread The Word and We will see you this Friday Night.

Battlefield Pirates Patch Released (0.31)

We have been enjoying (probably too much) The Pirates Mod for Battlefield 1942 over the last few days on the Gamers Radio Server. Now, the Battlefield Pirates Mod Team has released a promised patch for the 0.30 version of the game. The list of fixes from the readme is below, but include correcting one major bug, tweaks to many maps, and entirely new map for high seas mayhem. Visit PlanetBattlefield – Pirates Mod to download the patch.

Read me beta .31

-SkullClan Carpenter now has StoneAxes like he should instead of the PegLeg Throwing Knives.
-Fire delay for both the StoneAxes and Throwing Knives now reduced slightly. Seems there is a problem with the netcode where the delay could end up being so long that you could kill your oponent before you ever saw the knife.
-Shark Frenzies now do 50% more damage. Theyve sharpened their teeth and are now hungrier than ever.

-And the one major bug: In Beta3, you could actually sink a Galleon by slicing an ammo keg about 30 times with your cutlass! Yaar! That thar exploit be no more!

HydroRacers Server is up!

Ok, so they gave props to every other gaming related website and magazine, except for Gamers Radio. What the heck, its fun and no one is running a server for the HydroRacer BF42 mod. We decided to throw up an 4 on 4 server for your water flying, cannon shooting, enjoyment.

If you dont have this ingenious mod for BF42, grab it at Dont worry about the patch. Its an older version. You just need this one file.

Server info is on the side <------ or look for HydroRacers in your favorite game browser. Im sorry, but I had to take this down. It was eating 70% of our CPU with no one playing. Cool mod, crappy resources.
