To celebrate our 10th anniversary and two millionth Premium member, we are giving away Battlefield 1942 for free! Relive it if you’re an old-time fan. See where it all started if you’re new to the series. Download Battlefield 1942 now: http://origin.com/demos

No idea if it contains extra content. Worth the blast from the past smile.gif

For FOV, 'VideoDefault.con' is located in:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Origin Games\Battlefield 1942\Mods\bf1942\Settings

You may have to run the game once, apply the changes listed above and then set files to 'read only'

Mods confirmed as working

Remember to change file paths to reflect the Origin folders: http://www.moddb.com/games/battlefield-1942

Awesome. This brings back memories!

What happened to all BF3 Premium members getting this for free? I'm not sure if they ever got it in the end.

Take your moaning elsewhere.

This thread is NOT about Origin, it is about a free game. An awesome game, might I add.

If you have nothing relevant to post, just don't bother.

Wasn't moaning, as much as I love the game I refuse to install origin again.

No need to go on the offensive, and attack simply because of one statement.

Hmm, I don't remember that being promised? I think they said we'd get 1943, but that didn't occur because (my guess is) they had enough resources on BF3.

As for the Origin moaning, do it elsewhere. If you don't like it, that's cool, but create your own thread to moan in smile.gif

Pretty much. BF1942 is really good fun, Battle of Britain is cool.

I'm at work now... but someone please try installing mods like Dcon biggrin.gif

problem is, it encourages others to bash I dont know if youre a new member, or a new account, but if you stick around here, you will see why comments like that get old quick. Lots of bandwagon haters on this forum.

As for BF 1942... I dont have origin on my work rig, gonna have to wait until tonight. Anyone know if it registers to your account for future use? Are there servers still up for this game?

Apologies if I came off harsh, it's just frustrating when ever I come into a 'good news' thread to see it filled with negativity. Especially when it isn't directly related to the topic at hand.

Take it for what it is, it's a free game. smile.gif

This game pretty much revolutionised open world land/sea/air multiplayer warfare.

Ahh damn, of course it was! Major brain fart right there. tongue.gif

I need to re-prioritise my diary to play this.

I tried getting back into 2142 about three months ago (best BF ever released IMO) but for some reason the server list was empty. Not sure why, I think it must have been a bug. I hope this one works slightly better.

The link doesn't seem to do anything for me. Just takes me to the free games page which it isn't listed on. Do you have to actually have Origin installed to get it to work?
