The WW2 mod Extended is a conversion of the original Battlefield 1942 to the updated engine of Battlefield Vietnam. The all original maps have been transferred to the new engine. These theaters come to life like never before using the overgrowth and undergrowth that made BFV such a hit. All of the characters, weapons, and vehicles have also been redone to make use of the advanced BFV rendering engine. The original BF1942 content married to the gameplay tweaks introduced in BFV combine to create a whole new Battlefield experience. Mortars add a new dimension to the maps, but the biggest addition are the new flame throwers. These are devastating close range anti-infantry weapons, best used to clear structures or block paths with a wall of flame. They are very effective against scout cars, but are considerably less effective against armored vehicles.

The Mod That Almost Never Was
This mod was started more than a year ago by Sexcalibur. Initially, the
core group were some of the most talented modders available in the
Battlefield Community. Along the way, personal differences led to the
ultimate demise of this mod. Finally, Sexcalibur left the team. At that
point, Atomm of GamersRadio.com requested permission to pick up what was
left in an effort to get it to the public. With 3 remaining mod team
members, |GRB|Raze, DAVC and Running With Scissors, we struggled with a
few major bugs. Ultimately, DACV and Running With Scissors slowly drifted
away leaving |GRB| Raze with the last known good copy of the mod.
However, there were still some issues that had to be worked out before
this project could be released to the public. In his spare time, Raze
worked through them one by one. He even went as far as redoing the 2D
artwork and fixing some of the video lag issues that plagued the mod
since day one.
We were close to being done when Battlefield 2 was released. It seemed
interest for this mod was all but nonexistant. Even Raze and Atomm were
sucked up by the new Battlefield 2 game. So, the mod set on a server.
As the newness of BF2 wore off, Raze started poking around with the
last few issues, even adding a Community Bonus Map, Ghost Front, based
on the close forest fighting of the Battle of the Bulge. Complete with
Snow and Fire, Ghost Front was our way of saying thank you to everyone
who ever had any interest in this mod and waited paitently for it's
release. It's not much, but we hope you enjoy it.
So... Where are we now? We can not say that the mod is in a Final
Release status, but we can say it is very close. I would call it the
last Release Candidate as it is very playable. Rather than leaving it
sitting here for no one to play, we decided to release it. Even if you
only play it for one weekend, we feel it is better to give the BF
community back all the hard work they put into converting Battlefield 42
to the Battlefield Vietnam engine. If nothing else, we really feel BF42
looks better on the BFV engine. It would be a shame to leave this
sitting on a server, never have been played.
We would like to thank DICE for creating Battlefield 1942. It is a
game that meant so much to gamers like us. Maybe someday DICE will
revisit WWII and give us another incredible First Person Shooter.
We would like to thank Sexcalibur for starting this mod. In the end,
he could not get the job done, but he had a lot of heart.
We would like to thank all of the guys from Planet Battlefield who
initially joined this mod and poured their heart and souls into it.
This may be the only release, but it would never have been if not for
your commitment to the BF Community.
We would like to thank the gang in the Gamers Radio Battalion. When
no one else seemed to be willing to help test this mod, you jumped
Personally, I, Atomm would like to thank Raze. It's funny, but I
asked to bring him on board initially as the Website Designer. Who
would have ever imagined he would be the last guy standing when the
I would also like to thank Raze for bring my idea, Ghost Front to
life. You see, I was only a project manager on this mod, having no
artisitic abilities. When I drew a rough sketch of Ghost Front on a
piece of paper, Raze brought it to life. It was everything I had
wanted and more. Thank you my friend. I hope everyone enjoys
this fun map.
Finally, I would like to thank you for downloading this mod. Without
you, there would be no mod. Make sure you join us for good times on
Friday Night Fights where we will be reliving the glory days of
BF42 with Trees and Grass! Woohoo!
