File Description

The tank itself is fictional, and the markings are most likely incorrect for any tank operating in either theaters, i just wanted to have a go and see if i could skin somthing. The skin has'nt really been altered heavily as the original is good as it is. Anyhoo, enjoy :)

M4 Sherman Skin : &quot;Lucky Legs II&quot;
by Blair &quot;Godzilla&quot; Speirs

This is my first real attempt at going through the skinning process for a bf1942 model...
The reulting sherman is based on 2 tanks taken from the book &quot;World War II&quot; (ISBN 0862836840)
The images used, and included (dont worry there small) are:

British_Sherman.jpg:

&quot;A British Sherman tank leaves an LCT on the Sicily beaches. The crew are clearly not under fire, and the fact that
the officer in the turret is wearing a peaked cap rather than a helmet suggests that this picture was taken during
the period of reinforcement after the initial invasion was over.&quot;

US_Sherman.jpg:

&quot;A dramatic picture of US soldiers of the 37th Division during mopping up operations on Bougainville. Remaining
Japanese soldiers were launching themselves in Banzai attacks on US positions in the Empress Augusta beachhead area,
and these infantrymen were going forward under cover of a tank. The picture was taken as the soldier nearest spotted
a hidden Japanese soldier and fired.&quot;

The tank itself is fictional, and the markings are most likely incorrect for any tank operating in either theaters, i just
wanted to have a go and see if i could skin somthing. The skin has'nt really been altered heavily as the original is good as it is.

Anyhoo, enjoy :)

Installation
============================================

**** Please note you need .NET Framework to run the RFA Extractor Program****

1. Use RFA Extractor to extract all of the files in the TEXTURE.RFA LOCATED
C:\Program Files\EA GAMES\Battlefield 1942\Mods\bf1942\Archives TO THE MAIN DIRECTORY
C:\Program Files\EA GAMES\Battlefield 1942.

GRAB THE RFA EXTRACTOR HERE:
<http://www.bf1942files.com/file.info?ID=5888>

You should now have a TEXTURES folder in that directory!!
YOUR DIRECTORY SHOULD LOOK SOMEWHAT LIKE THIS:
C:\Program Files\EA GAMES\Battlefield 1942\texture

Now Move the texture.rfa located in the Archives folder to somewhere safe
on your PC. (DONT DELETE IT, YOU MAY NEED IT WHEN YOU UPGRADE THE GAME)

Take the Sherma_I.dds  file located in this zip and
put it in C:\Program Files\EA GAMES\Battlefield 1942\Texture\ directory and replace the ones currently there.
