You all should try to make them installations easier. In other games I play, I don't need all these programs. Or, to run aprogram to install it for me.

These are not our prefered mod installation methods. DICE is responsible for the methods used in which mods can be added and utilized. The modders have to figure it out.

Sounds like you're using version 1.1? Upgrade to 1.2 it'll make it much easier. Most mods for 1.2, once extraced from .zip or .rar, will only require the user to extract the mod's folder name to the folder "Battlefield1942\Mods\" folder.

Example: BerlinJeepsFinal (map with included mod)

Open the .zip or .rar, it would look like this [BerlinJeepsFinal] -------- folder Extract that folder to "Battlefield1942\Mods\"

That'll all you have todo.

End Result: "Battlefield1942\Mods\BerlinJeepsFinal\Archives\objects.rfa" "Battlefield1942\Mods\BerlingJeepsFinal\Archives\bf1942\levels\BerlinJeeps.rfa"

That's just to verify if they're in the right place. easy.

hmm, I haven't done any research into that field. Lately i've been interested in changing some of the speech the character speaks.

BTW: Did you ever play mohaa? I've heard of 'VonMeyer' before and I think they made some mods for MOHAA

OK, you said "Don't like em. Dont use em." I think you should shut your mouth misguided one. I was giving opinions, about the installation ways. Not critizing them, and saying I can't use em.

well post implied that it was somehow our fault that installation was so difficult. In all reality, there are few games easier to mod.
