EA announces patch 1.4 for Battlefield 1942

EA has an announcement on their website concerning the next patch, version 1.4. They did not provide a release date, but it does provide some good information on the patch. They also provide info on a new weapon for the next EA/DICE Mod.

This mod will prevent cheating, but it has the side effect of stopping all client side modifications. This will hurt many mod groups who are not designing their mod as a server side modification. The biggest one that comes to mind is Merciless Creations. They have done an incredible job changing the game to look better, but it is client side modifications.

For the record, I do not use this mod because I do not like the idea of having a different looking screen than the people I am playing against. With that said, I would download Merciless Creations in a heartbeat if it was server side. It really is a great work of art and I hope they continue to show support through a server side mod.

You can get more info on the Merciless Creations website. You can read EAs article by clicking Read More. Continue reading EA announces patch 1.4 for Battlefield 1942

Vietnam, the next Battlefield

According to this story on Gamespys PlanetBattlefield, Digital Illusions, the developers of Battlefield 1942 registered Battlefield Vietnam on February 12th, 2003.

I would also like to spotlight a great looking BF1942 mod currently under development called Eve of Destruction, The Indochina Vietnam Conflict (Whew!). I have only seen screenshots posted on their website, but I cant wait to get my hands on the game. They have some incredible custom terrain modeled, as well as great looking soldiers. You need to keep your eye out for this one, even if Dice decides to make their own Vietnam Battlefield.

Oh yea, check out their website.
