CATCH's MOD VEHICLE UPDATES  (by Catch, [email protected])


-All credit due go's to Recruit Snyder & Feed for there excellent vehicle 
mods(keep'em comin)!
-I've added a few neccesary improvements(not many) so that one day these 
might be used on many servers! (DETAILS BELOW INSTALLATION).

This package contains:
-(sorry! no texture pack for Snyders Hano, I didnt Keep them).
-(sorry! no PanzerIV/Weapons.con to help the hano it made it unfair with 
only the panzerIV & Hanomag having 55 rounds).


-First, make a copy of your Objects.rfa file/rename it(.bak) and put in a 
backup folder.

-Using Ryan Foss's RFA extractor FOLLOW FOSS"S DIRECTIONS!!!


-"Download BattleField Mod development toolkit"(winRFA unpack & RFA Mod 
quick pack v1.1 Included). Use the Mod wizard to create a MYMOD folder. Then 
use winRFA to  open and extract the Objects.rfa file located in your archive 
folder of bf1942 (extract to -> Battlefield1942/mods/"Mymod" folder whatever 
you named it). Then go to Objects/Vehicles/Land and replace the existing 
con files with the modified ones in there respective folders ie. 
hanomag/willy/kubelwagon, and your almost done. Now, Use the (RFA Mod quick 
pack v1.1) located in "Mymod/Archives to pack  the Objects folder to ,rfa 
format. To activate click on it twice, a small window will appear it will 
have buttons wich say pack level and (Pack Folder) with drop down menus 
beside them. From the (Pack Folder drop down menu) choose Objects. Now just 
click Pack Folder and it will pack the folder to .rfa file format directly 
into the MYmod/Archives folder. Now you must replace the Original 
Objects.rfa file with the modified one, If your origanal Objects.rfa file is 
still in the bf1942/Archives folder when you replace it, It will notify you 
to get permission to replace the original file, IF YOU HAVE ALREADY MADE A 
COPY OF IT TO ANOTHER FOLDER you should choose "yes to all" "If you RENAMED 
AND REMOVED IT this prompt will not occur" "IF NOT MAKE A COPY OR 


-Simply delete the modified Objects.rfa file, and replace it with your 
Original file And rename it back to Objects.rfa!


-This Mod is Singleplayer only, ie. IT DOESN'T WORK ON MULTIPLAYER 
SERVERS(unless the same Mod is installed there). If you wish to play On MP 
servers just follow the removal instructions.

possible without crashing the game when trying to load the map!
