Battlefield 1942 Server Updates

Vin Diesel Friendship Brigade BF1942 server 96.8.114.154:14767 has been updated w/the following changes:

Friendly Fire has been lowered to 5%

Server Auto-Balance has been engaged.  This will greatly minimize peoples abilities to switch teams.  FYI while this is great for solo-play, it can be undesirable for group play due to making it nigh impossible to play on the same team as your buddies.

Previously the server did automatically keep teams within a 1:1 ratio, but it allowed players to switch and would auto-balance them upon death.  When one team begins to spawn camp, players frequently change over to be on the spawn camping side.  When anyone from that spawn camping side dies, they will be forced to switch back over, but not before then which is how teams become “stacked”

  1. It was kind of annoying when we were getting spawn-camped and the other team had about 5 more people than us because some people can’t handle getting beaten.

  2. I joined into a spawn trap…which was perfectly fine by me as I haven’t touched this game (or PC gaming in general since the original Americas’s Army in 2002)

    So I was really just attempting to get my bearings straight,see what kinda ping I was running on etc. So I had fun.

    speaking of Ping,as I’ve been away from any form of gaming where ping was “noticeable” by an actual number. What exactly is a good ping? I was running in between 50-75 through out the match.

  3. In cod, i think a 4 bar is anything under 100 ping. That should give you a point of reference. Anything above 100 isnt very fun…

  4. Well if we are being realistic with COD 4 bars have meant nothing since MW3 haha.

    But Thank you for the comparison.

    In 1942 mods I had no problem playing with 120 ping. I can notice the 150-170 ping a little in this server though.

    One of the ways to get out of being spawn camped is to put in capturable mains which is a nice way of essentially putting the team out of their misery. That said, the reason why you were spawn camped wasn’t because you were outnumbered, it was because you were being spawn camped and then people ended up switching.

    As I’ve previously stated, the server demands a 1:1 ratio of allies to axis. Nobody likes being spawn camped, but unfortunately there aren’t a lot of capturable main bases in BF42.

    Just a suggestion, but everyone against WaldoDude, Bruce, and DannyBoy. Maybe a few extra people so they don’t get swarmed.

    Oh, a 4 bar is 150 and below?

    No it’s in steps of 100, so 4bar is 99-100 and lower, 1 bar is more than 300. On the pc there’re cvars that determine the amount of bars and the amount of ping they represent and the default values are 4 and 100. On Black Ops 2 I float between 4 and 3 bar when I play on New Jersey servers, which I normally ping around 80-100 to.

    Maybe it’s different on consoles though, but that would be weird.

    Depends on the game too how bad a high ping can be. In CoD it’s not even that bad, but on BF1942 infantry is pretty much unplayable @ 150 ping (VDFB server). Not that BF1942 has good hitreg anyway. ^__^

  12. Don’t they have reflect damage (splash or single target)?
    Meaning that when you shoot your teammate, the damage is reflected to the shooter, splash? same same.

  13. I just played on the VDFB server one on one with a guy from Poland (he was nice and my ping advantage made me feel like a badass). You would think that with all of the people that watch Wally, DB and Bruce there would be more people playing.
