Wake Island - Same Day
"It's late in the evening and the air is getting a bit cooler. After all the efforts made by my fellow soldiers and me, we actually managed to survive this afternoon's attacks. Oh man!, the loss of William and James is more painfull than the bullet that got through my shoulder. Everyone here saw at least one of their friends die in the hand of the ennemy. Thank God I can still breathe and got enough energy left to sit here and watch for any suspicious activities."

After all the efforts made by my fellow soldiers and me, we actually managed to survive this afternoon's attacks. Oh man!, the loss of William and James is more painfull than the bullet that got through my shoulder. Everyone here saw at least one of their friends die in the hand of the ennemy. Thank God I can still breathe and got enough energy left to sit here and watch for any suspicious activities." "The fact that we finally got reinforcements doesn't decrease the chances that we might be attacked again by the ennemy. Well, that doesn't lower the speed at wich my blood is rushing through my veins neither... I cleaned up and kissed my Mk1 hoping that I'm gonna make another twenty four hours alive. But... wait..., if this is what I think it is... there's a red sun on that flag, and another one!!! Shit!" "Ennemy ships spotted! Two japanese carriers! One west, one east! Four japanese planes total! Destroyer at west of island!!! Get up, load up your guns... we're under attack!!!" "...looks like the day is not over yet..." ------------------------------ MENU --------------------------------- 1 - Information about the map... + what's new since patch 1.2. 2 - Important notice. 3 - Installation instructions. 4 - Thank yous and more. 1 ----- INFORMATION ----- Thank you for downloading this new Battlefield 1942 level named "Wake Evenings 1.2": the very first 'new' map made by myself, MoonQuake. Wake Evenings continues the Battle of Wake Island, late in the evening. Let's see what we got in this map : *** NEW for Battlefield version 1.2 *** * "Instant battle" singleplayer support. * 2 new control points at both ends of island. * 1 more jeep at each end of island. * Useless sandbags at ends of island now useful with machineguns added for flag defense from boats. * New custom images. - Battle during a dark late evening. - Increased view distance by 300% (some map tweaking should help you keep a good performance level. If you need to, you can always lower the Details and View distance from BF's option menu.) - Reorganised reinforcements. (more stuff and placed differently. Some of them have been modified for a little fantasy and fun..) - Some vehicles have a longer life if left alone. - Darker suits makes it easier to hide. - Some modified textures. - It's late, so the water level as lowered! Be careful with the boats! - Results of the last days of battle : the terrain is now rough and hasardous. Good for hiding, bad for driving. - New control points attributes. - New "dropped-from-a-plane" reinforcement waves. (better be quick on the parachute handle) - It is now possible to move a big ship in the center of the island! Yes! - And more............ 2 -------------- IMPORTANT NOTICE -------------- The usual 3 respawn points on japanese aircraft carrier now refer to the 2 carriers. Carrier respawn points are no longer aligned on the ships, but are showing up in the average center point of both carrier coordinates. If you select to respawn on a carrier, you will respawn on the closest carrier from where you died, usually. Best way of playing this map is Conquest mode (Multiplayer) or Instant Battle mode (Single player). Campaign mode (Sp) does not include Wake Evenings. This level was NOT tested with the DEMO versions of BF 1942. It will probably not work. Feel free to distribute this BF1942 custom level 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 map, be sure to include information about its author. If you plan to copy parts/entire code from this map, ask me before you do so! :) 3 ---------- INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS ----------- Very easy! You got only 1 game file in the ZIP package. You must simply extract it from the package and put it in the correct folder within your Battlefield 1942 game folder : * Open your "BATTLEFIELD 1942" folder on your hard drive (where you can see the "BF1942.exe" and many folders and files). * Then, locate and open the following folders : Mods/bf1942/archives/bf1942/levels/ -- From your ZIP file : * Put Wake_Evenings.rfa into this "levels" folder. * Delete these files from previous version, if necessary (wherever it is within your battlefield game folder): - menu_942.rfa -- no need anymore! - texture_942.rfa -- no need anymore! Voila! You are done!!! Make sure that anytime you want to use Wake Evenings, you got Wake Island in the same levels folder. They are like brothers! :) 4 ---------- THANK YOUS AND MORE ---------- Special thank to Ferrez for hosting the download file, giving me suggestions and helping me beta test! (merci bro!)
