Could someone please give me step by step instructions on how to install skins in bf1942 v 1.2. And if you can tell me where to get a program to make rfas so i can use old skins :). Thanks for any help you can give me :)
Good luck on this. I cant get anyone to help me with a sound mod in 1.2
1) Download the RFA Extractor from the main site 2) Install the RFA Extractor 3) Make a new folder to store backups, preferably outside of your main Battlefield 1942 folder 4) Run RFA Extractor and open texture.rfa in ...\EA GAMES\Battlefield 1942\Mods\bf1942\Archives. Choose Extract all and set the destination to be your backup folder. It should run for a while and you should see a new folder called "texture" in your destinated folder. 5) Now you can drop any new texture you have into this folder, replacing the old ones 6) Move this whole texture folder into the main directory (...\EA GAMES\Battlefield 1942\) 7) Move the texture.rfa in the ...\EA GAMES\Battlefield 1942\Mods\bf1942\Archives to somewhere else, preferably your backup folder from before. The texture folder in main WILL NOT work if texture.rfa still exist in the Archives folder 8) Done.
Any new texture you want to use, just place them in the texture folder. If you want to go back to your old textures, just remove the texture folder from main and move texture.rfa back into Archives.
This also worked with sounds. I downloaded DOD and MOH sounds and pick and choose my own, making a combination of original, DOD and MOH sound effects.
I did all the above for sounds and when i go in a SP game i dont hear anything at all? I extracted the sound rfa files to mods/bf1942 folder and out the sounds in there and i dont hear anyhting.
thank you, finally a straight answer i understand
How the hell did it work for you and not for me? Might be using the wrong sound mod but this isnt the DOA one i want to use
VonMeyer> read the instructions a bit more carefully.
DON'T put the sounds folder in bf1942\Archives. ANY extracted folder should go in your MAIN Battlefield 1942 folder. Also make sure that sound.rfa is no longer in Archives (or any other folder in Battlefield 1942 main folder).
I put my sounds folder into my mods/bf1942 folder and i dont hear anything? And the sound RFA was on my desktop for backup. DN do you have any instant messenger you could talk this through with me because i have no idea what im doing.
ok, i've played the textures folder in EA GAMES\Battlefield 1942 , EA GAMES\Battlefield 1942\Mods\bf1942, and EA GAMES\Battlefield 1942\Mods\bf1942\archives and everytime i come up with all my textures gone, whats up?
I had the texture folder in 3 Diff places and when i took out the original texture file everything is white. So it seems skins wont work with 1.2 so can a moderator please lock this thread its not getting anywhere!
