Tanelorn Mod for DC 0.65 (22 Jan 2004)

This mod is an attempt to bring DC gameplay closer to how the real equipment behaves.

I have not created this mod to rival the DC team. More, to appeal to hard-liners and prior service. It improves immersion by making the equipment behave more closely to what you would expect from real world counterparts. I *HAVE NOT* taken a truly realistic posture, as we all know how superior US equipment is to third world counterparts. 

So please give this mod a try. It's a swift download, and makes no permanent or extensive changes to your DC directory.

Remember this is a work in progress. There is still much more to be done. 
Provide feedback in the official Desert Combat forums under the Tanelorn Mod thread.

The zip file is organized to reflect the directory structure of your BF1942/mods folder. You will see one folder within this zip file, called DC_Tanelorn. This folder goes into your Mods directory. 

The following files are included in this zip (with pathnames)

To create a shortcut to this mod, I suggest duplicating your Desert Combat shortcut, and in the target field:
replace +game DesertCombat 
with +game DC_tanelorn

While it is not necessary to play the mod, in order to see the DC movie and hear the DC music, you will need to copy the movie and music files from Desert Combat to the DC Tanelorn folders. They are located in:
