I've had DC 0.3 since it hit FilePlanet, and I got it for free. You take the DesertCombat mod folder that is unpacked upon install, zip it for your friends, they d/l it and stick it in the BF1942 root. Just like the regular install that is availible now. Not rocket science.
I agree that the Fileplanet exclusive distro is a stupid thing to have for a free program - from what I heard in various IRC channels and boards throughout the gaming community is that the only people who were whining about pulling DC off of sources other than Fileplanet were those who payed for the FP service. Too bad, so sad, buh-bye. I do not feel bad in any way that you had to pay for something I got for free, and I got it for free completely legally. Sounds smart to me. It's like paying for canned air from Druidia when you can suck it in for nothing. Sorry - I just don't get it. Must be the Canadian side of me.
Besides, on one DC server I was playing on no one (out of 16 players) had gotten it from FP. So, this delivery method is obviously flawed.
Buggy? That's why it's called "version 0.3". I have not found one single bug since installing it and playing it. It has yet to crash. I have more issues with BF1942 the game itself than with the DC mod. If you find it buggy and it crashes your system continuously, I'd attribute it to user error. Seems like the general community doesn't have an issue with it. Besides... it's free! Whining about something that is free.... yeah. Ok. Sure.
I also have the Merciless Creations add-on, and again - no hitches or crashes for me. It's called "clean install". Perhaps your Win 95 - upgrade to 98 - upgrade to Me - upgrade to XP system may have some errors in it? Just a thought. I seem to have these "thought" things from time to time.
Some of you d00dz seriously need to chill before coming on here and ranting your brains out. You won't have much brains left if you keep that up.
Then again, can't lose what you never had..... MrFancyPants
