New BF1942 Eve of Destruction

The Eve of Destruction Website now offers a new version 2.31 of the Eve of Destruction modification that brings Battlefield 1942 from World War II into the Vietnam War. The update adds new vehicles, and tweaks a bunch of weapons and maps. They also recall the debut release of the mod was called version 0.10 because it represented 10% of what was planned for the project, clarifying that version 2.31 does not mean it is 231% done. Thanks Ant via Planet Battlefield.

Ahhh, BF1942. This was a great game and EoD was pretty cool...10 YEARS AGO! Can a modern PC even run this fossil of a game or do I have to jump through hoops figuring out how to get it to run?
It still should work under old XP Pro. SP3 like my i7 950 with old, updated XP Pro. SP3. [grin]

There is a large server up as I write this:

http://www.game-monitor.com/search.php?vars=gamevariant=fh2&game=bf2

It's an experimental project to go over the BF2 64 player cap and as such the servers are up and down. Also the mad scientist running them might put on vanilla or PR often times.

Most recently I played on an FH2 server with 128 players on an ATI 4850 with no issue, aside the fact the server is hosted in Finland.

FH2 is still very much alive. We have been waiting for the next FH2 patch for a very long time, but that is standard procedure. The player base is mainly on European servers at this point but the Americans populate servers on Thursdays and Fridays. Also there are at least 2 tournament leagues active.

The most exciting thing right now is the chance to play on one of the experiment servers that might support anywhere from 100 to 200 players at a time. It truly adds to the epic war feeling.
Ooh, 100-200 servers. That has to be crazy. I hope my PC and pipe can handle it as a client! Is that up now or still a long way to go?

Nah, if there were 32 players on I'd install 1942 and the mod, but... Even an ant farm would be more fun. Err, I mean, tasty.

Tasty??!?!

If you don't like where gaming is heading, stop giving your money to the people who are taking it in that direction.

It's been a long time but iirc I liked FHmod much more than EoD. DC was better still. But that was 5+ years ago and maybe EoD is far better now.

Honest question, I only tried it once long ago but was pretty into DC and the competitive scene for it.
