EAComMike has posted the new community update on the official BF1942 website. In the post it gives information on the upcoming 1.4 patch! quote:
We wanted to take a moment and bring everyone up to speed on the next Battlefield 1942 patch, 1.4. With this patch, we're working on features and fixes that will address gameplay and performance issues. We're working hard on the patch, and as usual, we will not report a release date until we are 100% certain we can hit it.
Fixes and Features in 1.4 include: Tank Repair exploit - tanks will no longer be able to repair in the airplane hanger. Improved voting GUI - the voting interface has been improved. Cheats - we will be implementing features which address many of the cheats currently being seen in BF1942 games. Linux Server.
Two new guns being added: The DP 1928 - Japanese Assault rifle and the Type 99 - Russian Assault rifle. A note on cheating and exploits -- we've all seen how cheating can destroy the gameplay experience for everyone. EA and DICE take cheating seriously and we are taking an aggressive stance in preventing exploits which allow people to cheat. The biggest source of all BF cheats and exploits are client-side modifications. With the release of patch 1.4, we are disabling all client-side mods. Unfortunately, this means that the client side mods that aren't used for cheating will also be affected. DICE and EA have spent the past few months trying to engineer a solution which allows client-side mods to work while stopping the cheats. Ultimately it proved impossible to do so in such a way that prevented future client side mods from opening up new methods of cheating and exploitation. However, this doesn't mean that all mods are unusable. By making the mods into full server-side mods (Desert Combat for example), everyone can experience the cool factor that these mods offer.
So in other words Merciless Creations will no longer work after 1.4. So dice/ea just killed this game. There own game. Sad very sad.
mods will still work they will be server side. i dont really care if merceless doesnt work thats not a big deal at all.
merciless is a HISTORIC add on nothing all that important will be gone even though historacly corect is cool a fun game is better
I'm not downloading 1.4 then. I'll play with bots for the rest of my life if I have to. I'm not losing Merciless.
Man just **** it. I'm going back to RTCW.
So it seems that the community doesn't really need Merciless or custom skins at all... I guess my skinning career here is shortlived... as for most of the skinners that submit here unless they're skinning for a mod.
I just emailed EA. I doubt they'll care. But maybe if alot of us do it they will change their minds.
Now this is something that justifies a petition, (No offense to the people who signed the 1 person arty Petition.)
This is just ridiculus,
Ok, Cheating has to be prevented, but there as to be another way.

That's the way to go! If you need a revive, come see your friendly neighborhood medic :smokin:
