Howdy. Okay here's the deal. I got a really good computer, I'm think about getting Battlefield 1942. BUT, I don't have broadban so it probably wouldn't be any fun to play online. So I want to know if there's any kind of single-player game here? Or if there are bots to play in multi-player? And if there is, would I have any fun if I couldn't play the online? Thanks for replying.

Well The SP part of the game is kinda of fun if your boradband fails for a day

You can play on all maps with 64+ bots only some maps have less vehicle's then normal but that can be edited

Ai of bots is kind off low but if you set it to high it gets ridicoules

They cant get up a hill but they CAN shoot you with a sniper rifle from a plane that's flying at high speed dogfighting other planes

Hmm, well thanks for replying. Do bots use vehicles and can you give them orders?

The AI of bots is pretty low, well at least on my crap comp. If you wanna have many bots you gotta change cpu time given to AI to max. Haha, I tried playing with 64 bots 48 allies and the rest axis on Omaha. And I had cpu time given to AI set on 13 or something. I got like 5-10 fps om my crap comp, but what was really funny was how the bots acted. When I encoutered them they lied down and vibrated. Looked really wierd, especially when 48 bots did it at the same time.:D I threw a grenade and blew up 10 of em. Haha, 130 kills when the round was over.:)

i can't play online at all at home, so i know how you feel. Bots are still a challenge if you make them good. put the stiings on impossible and it is just that.:)

it does get boring after a while though. They are supposed to listen to orders with the 1.2 patch but they don't seem to. If you tell them to bail out of a vehicle they just sit there looking at you as if you are stupid, until they die when the tank blows up.:mad: :mad:

They also do not give you targets for artilley or use targets you give them.

But at least they are too stupid to think of teamkilling ;) :) .

Probably not worth paying the full price if you are only going to play singleplayer, not until AI is a whole lot better.
