R.I.P BF1942. Started it up today and freezes when I attempt to update the server list. Looks like Gamespy is finally dead....
Not a big deal as long as you still have a serverlist.dat file in your profile. The old servers still work if their IPs haven't changed. But updating the list at all will require a hacked exe that points to a new master server list server.
Still have a lag problem though. My internet connection is fine, but every 20 seconds I have at least 2 seconds of connection problems. It just hangs there for two seconds and then continues. Really annoying when I'm flying a plane or when I encounter an enemy up close (which results in me being killed right after). When the spike is over, everything runs fine and I have a really low ping.
EA has announced discontinuation of a number of games its been servicing support for. Battlefield 1942 is effected and gamespy's shut down is going to freeze the server browser without this: ORIGIN BF42 Fix
The installations include additional features as well. If you care to discuss more of the services' shutdown, please take a look inside this thread. The bf1942.exe goes in the main Battlefield 1942 folder.

Kudos to FlaMiN for fathering such a divine creation. Thanks to Buschhans for making this video! Attached in this download is my Movies Folder in the Interstate archive. It contains the criteria for Apache's custom Disco. And other map's bik files. Special thanks to [ISR] Shrooms. [Clickity Click]
My second map, GoodDay's Deathrace, has been revised & renamed to gooddaytodie_iii. The map plays the same mostly(still TAXING RANK COOKIE WORTHY). Changes include: Added flag to Out of Bounds section. Reegad's Taxi Stratos. Additional Foliage & Mountains/Hillsides. Modified the Hand Weapons some. Stratos no longer spawn at the start. Increased View Distance. GOOD LUCK!
