Battlefield 1942: Tool/Map Plans & More

An update to the Battlefield 1942 Website (thanks Ant) covers a variety of present and future topics related to the World War II FPS, including the current availability of the Secret Weapons add-on, troubleshooting tips for virtual CD drives or misprinted CD keys, pimpage for their server leasing program, the promise of first crack at goodies like a new BF: Vietnam trailer and the next official map release (The Philippines, due in "early October") for those who sign up for their official newsletter, and, as excerpted here, the status of a couple of the hottest issues in the community at the moment, the CD swap issue, and the status of a modification SDK. Here's the deal:

Mod Development Toolkit
We're excited to announce the development of a new toolkit for the Battlefield 1942 mod community - a Mod Development Toolkit. We will be releasing an Open Beta version of the MDT in the near future. Please watch this space for more details.

CD-Swapping in 1.45
We are looking at a fix for this. The issue isn't just that the Battlefield SafeDisk check has to work with Road to Rome and Secret Weapons, but we have to ensure that it works with mods as well. This has required a lengthier development time. However, we are dedicated to getting a fix in place ASAP. Please stay tuned for updates.

I love BF1942's cd checks! Want to join a BF1942 map? Please insert BF1942 cd! Oh, server timed out? Now you wanna do a Road to Rome map?? Well, Go get your Road to Rome box out cause now you need that cd!! Its as if they promote pirating of games to remove cd-checks. How has safedisc ever helped anyone, they end up cracking its protection in what? 5 minutes? Damn you game makers are dumb sometimes.
