This is a nice mod, release by MoonQuake!!! I adds a lot more action(duh!) to the game, like faster jeeps, more powerful planes etc... Really cool, check it out!!!

____________________________________________ 1 -- ACTION BATTLEFIELD 1942 FEATURES -- ____________________________________________

- More accurate, fast paced and well balanced BF 1942 gameplay!

- Some patch 1.2 corrections included (you'll "feel" them when you play...)

- Faster, more powerful vehicles and soldiers!

- More efficient helpers (medic and engineer)

- Loaded weapons (more ammo, new "action" way of using weapons!)

- Some modified weapons : the "Permanent zoom sniper rifle", the "1-2-3 rocket launcher" and the "nervous knife"!

- Bomb raid with the B-17 with more bombs and 2 extra passengers with 2 extra turrets!

- 6 passengers jeeps also equipped with machinegun!!! (axis and allies)

- Frightening tanks with a new hiding position on gunner turrets! (that's right you can get down in turret and look upward!)

- Completely wreck ships and tanks with the new fast and more aggressive planes! (prepare for intense dogfights!)

- ALL B-17 and APCs/Hanomags are now also acting as "moving" respawn points! That's right! You can respawn on them... on all maps!

- New custom soldier views, including the 3rd person view... and more... (great for action plans and screenshots!)

- More intense explosions and FX!

- Modified crosshair : gives you a better idea of your accuracy.

- New optimised chat colors

- The Icons flashing on the in-game map when requesting something from your team will flash longer now. Giving you more time to see who's asking for help! :)

____________________________________________________
2     -- REALLY IMPORTANT before you play with Action BF --
____________________________________________________

> Include "ACTION BF" in your server names. Otherwise people will never know if you are running an ActionBF server. (they will get an error message and will be disconnected)

> Cannot join normal online games when ACTION BF is installed. Uninstall (follow uninstall procedure) to play normal BF. (this is how it works until DICE do something for easier switch between mods.)

> B-17/APC/Hanomag are now respawn points, wich means you can respawn from them if your team is owning the vehicle (team texture.) Also, respawn points are now shared for duplicate APCs/Hanomags team-wise. E.G. : If there are more than 1 APC at the moment of respawning, there will be only 1 moving respawn point on the map placed in the average middle of those APCs. If there is only 1 APC, then, guess what, the point will appear right on the vehicle on the map. :)

> Medics : now everybody respawn with some fatigue accumulated.  You got about 81% of your health on respawn and you might use a little physical and mental boost from medics! Ask politely to your nearby medic, and you'll go battle the ennemy with more rage and determination to win! :)   (don't worry, your 81% includes a little health boost, so you're now starting with 65hp instead of the usual 50hp. Max hp : 80! 

> Engineers : You guys are gonna be even more important as the soldiers transporters (APCs and hanomags) are now strategic respawn points. Stay close to them. Don't be shy to add a little grease, monkey boys!

> This mod was NOT tested with the DEMO versions of BF 1942. It will probably not work.



________________________________________________
3      -- QUICK INSTALL/UNINSTALL PROCEDURE --
________________________________________________
(for detailed procedures, refer to  "Install--Uninstall detailed.txt" in this ZIP file.)


------------ >Installation : 


-Open-up your "Battlefield 1942" game folder.

-Unzip each of the 3 game component files respectively there : 


The file "Objects_4ActionBF.rfa"  goes into your     ...battlefield 1942/ARCHIVE    folder. 

The file "game_4ActionBF.rfa"   goes into your    ...battlefield 1942/ARCHIVE/BF1942   folder.

The file "actionbf.bik"   goes into your   ...battlefield 1942/MOVIES   folder.


It is important that you install "ActionBF.bik" in the MOVIES folder because this movie will tell you when Action BF is active or not during the game intro. (BTW : you never need to uninstall ActionBF.bik, it's not going to interfere with anything even if you don't play ActionBF.)

Don't change the actual name of any Action BF install files.



----------- >Uninstallation  : 


-Open-up your "Battlefield 1942" game folder.


You MUST rename those 2 files : 

...battlefield 1942/ARCHIVE/Objects_4ActionBF.rfa
to
...battlefield 1942/ARCHIVE/Objects_4ActionBF.old

and

...battlefield 1942/archive/BF1942/Game_4ActionBF.rfa
to
...battlefield 1942/archive/BF1942/Game_4ActionBF.old


It is important that you leave "ActionBF.bik" in the MOVIES folder because this movie will tell you when Action BF is active or not during the game intro. (BTW : you never need to uninstall ActionBF.bik, it's not going to interfere with anything even if you don't play ActionBF.)



____________________________
4     -- TROUBLESHOOTING  --
____________________________


If the game ever crashes just before you can get into the battle, or after a couple of minutes of play, try lowering Sound Detail in Sound Options. Because there is more action, therefore more sounds played simultaneously, it's giving the sound card more chances to crash the game. Hopefully future patches will update the game and fix sound card issues.

If this doesn't fix the problem, then it might be something else. Ask for help on the net please. Don't send me emails for troubleshooting.

Thanks to Ferrez for hosting the download file.

Thanks to all web sites for publishing my work!

Thanks to Moseley for RFA Extractor and MakeRFA!


Thanks to all of you guys to support me and understand that I was all alone doing this mod... I appreciate the fact that you guys understand that this mod is far from perfect and that it, of course, doesn't reflect what a team of 12 people can do. It is possible to do better, I know. But just consider this as an extremely well-intentioned attempt at making you guys and the life of BF 1942 happy with new stuff to play with.


> All of the content of this mod is original and written by myself. Meaning that I was already discovering new things that I would put in Action BF even before the release of my new map "Wake Evenings" and other peoples patches. Some really good ideas I had for Action BF were released before Action BF by other moders for your enjoyment (friendly ggrrr to them... hehe). But be sure that even though there are some similarities between their patches and a few features of Action BF, most of these features were already written for Action BF so I don't feel like copying anything. On the other hand, it is honest to say that some of them inspired me.  That must mean that our ideas where really good and appreciated by most gamers. =)


Feel free to distribute this BF 1942 custom mod as long as this README file is included in the download file (ZIP). Content and creator informations must not be modified no matter what. If you wish to post screenshots of this mod, be sure to include information about its author.



Enjoy the show!
