A nice fix to further complete vonManstein's quality Battlefield modification.

Corrected bug - In the original, I omitted to apply the ammo load and magazine capacity changes to the Sniper versions of the k98 and No4 rifles.

GAME: Battlefield 1942 v1.1 (may not work for earlier or later versions)
MOD: vonManstein's Realistic Small Arms Mod v2.0

DESCRIPTION:
1) Increased (between 50-100%) damage for all infantry small arms weapons including all mounted machineguns. 
Notes: You can kill enemy infantry with fewer shots, but the same applies to you!

2) Increased ammunition for all assault rifles, submachines and rifles - reduced ammunition for pistols.  
Notes: Each soldier now carries as near as possible the same amount of ammunition as real soldiers did in the war. Unfortunately the maximum number of magazines is limited by the game engine to 9, so the k98 rifle equipped soldiers are limited to 45 rounds in total, instead of the 60 carried by soldiers equipped with the No4 rifle.  (The Axis will just have to be more accurate shots!)

3) The magazine capacity for the No.4 rifle has been increased to 10, which is its true capacity.
Notes: Giving Allied soldiers equipped with this weapon a further advantage.

4) The magazine capacity for the MP18, MP40 and StG44 has been reduced from 32 to 30.  
Notes: Historically soldiers didn't load the maximum 32 rounds, because that way with these weapons, the bullets were much less likely to jam in the magazine.

5) The magazine capacity for the Thompson has been reduced to 20.  Thompson-equipped soldiers carry 3 extra magazines to compensate.
Notes: The most commonly used magazine for the Thompson was the 20-round version.

6) The magazine capacity for the Colt has been reduced to 7, which is its true capacity.


Notes for v2.0 - In the original I forgot to change the ammo load and magazine capacity for the sniper versions of the rifles.  This has now been corrected.


INSTALLATION:

Use Winzip to extract all files (game_391.rfa and objects_391.rfa) to your main Battlefield 1942 folder.  By default this is: C:/Program Files/EA GAMES/Battlefield 1942/

Make sure you have the 'Use folder names' option ticked.
