BF1942 Server has finally arrived!

BF1942Server

Most of the settings should be set although we’ll probably be playing with a few values such as tickets, friendly fire, and spawn times.  Friendly fire is set at 50% but we’ll see how that goes.  I’d rather play with full on friendly fire because it’s pretty fucking noobish to sit there and ex pack your feet to get kills, but 50% should eliminate most of this while allowing for some breathing room.

Spawn timers are set to spawn between 4 and 10 seconds.  I don’t remember what the “competitive” values were, but it really doesn’t matter because they were probably much longer and the goal isn’t to drive people away, but to bring them in.  The numbers are really difficult to balance as a result of BF containing hidden values.  Each time we adjusted one of two values, it would change both the min and max respawn time.  Ideally we would assign a value to min/max respawn time and be done with it, but I suppose in order to make an omelette you have to break a few eggs.

Map list is variable and doesn’t have to stay the way that it is.  We threw out Guadal and Midway (BLEH) but we’re open to switching things up if people have some maps they really prefer.

Anything else, lemme know!

    yes and no. 1942 mods has a consistent player base and this one doesn’t just yet. We will be advertising it this week though and see if that helps.

    if all else fails, expect 1942 mods server #2

    You say that if if you and xcal dont have enough viewers to fill up a 30 man server. Im sure there are plenty of people on xcal’s channel alone who would want to get the chance to play with you guys.

    In which state is the server hosted? Just curious.

    If it’s too much of an issue we can change it, but people in 1942 mods frequently grenade and det pack their feet which is also horrific.

    Didn’t 1942mods have it so you do 100% dmg to yourself but 5% to teammates? Also, is the server up or what? I sure can’t find it on the server list?

    Doing damage to yourself but not teammates isn’t possible in 42 although it would be nice.

    It’s not popular enough. After we advertise it to 40k people on Wed or Thurs I’m sure it’ll start doing better.

    Alright sweet stuff I hoped on and played 5 minutes of free roam tanks earlier and that’s when I knew something was up.

    It’s free on Origin – which is EA’s version of Steam but crappier.

  21. In the demos section. not the free games part oddly enough.

  22. Been playing for a couple of hours now. (first 4 games of Battlefield for me, ever.)

    I have a 40 ping and stuff. It’s pretty occupied, I think it’s been close enough to 10v10 all afternoon.

    Also it’s worth noting that the TKing is pretty out of hand. Also I am a failure at this game.

    So that happened. I think auto-balance might be in order if this is to be a server where people learn how to play at all. The spawn camp was set up within 90 seconds and there was no moving after spawning (literally exploding upon spawn).

    I am not complaining about it, it was a pretty intense skill disparity. But it definitely isn’t fun to spawn into that, nor is it possible to learn how to play for those of us who haven’t played before.

    And if this server is not for those of us who would like to learn how to play, then please ignore this comment (not being bitchy). Anyhow, been fun so far.

    Unfortunately (for the free version) it has to be run through Origin which does not, to my knowledge, have a mac client.

    If you bought a regular mac copy though you should be able to play.

  29. A regular mac copy? I HIGHLY doubt a game that old had a mac version.

    The server DOES have auto balance on, but it’s of a forgiving nature. What the server does right now is it lets you switch teams so you can join in and play with friends if they’re on the opposite team. If the teams become unbalanced this way, when someone dies they’ll be switched over to the opposing faction to even it back out.

    The reason why you’re seeing hugely lopsided games is because the dudes who are getting spawn camped are dying and switching to the other side and then not dying again so no one is switched back.

    The other possibility is to enable TRUE team balancing and that will enforce people staying on their team and at no time will they be allowed to switch teams.

    Okay, that makes sense. I see the damned if you do/if you don’t situation that puts you in as an admin, too. Either way is cool, I am not too butthurt about the pounding I have received today.

    I would just like to say that that was me at the top of the scoreboard and I didn’t change teams once. At the start of the game I hopped in a tank and was the first man on both flags. 😀
