I'm not sure about you, but the only thing that comes to my mind anymore when somebody mentions Battlefield 1942 is the ever wonderful Desert Combat mod. Well, looks as if there's been a new release (version .35e) today. Weighing in at a whopping 187MB, it appears that quite a lot has been updates as there's a HUGE list of balance/fix issues that've been added for your gaming pleasure. Currently I could only find two links, so have at it :


Now that I can actually get to their homepage without the HTTP:500 error, there's this bit of info to go along with this release:
DesertCombat .35 is aimed as a patch release to .3, it adds mainly bugs fixes and balancing from user feedback, we are listening to everything you are saying and .35 is just that. .35 is not aimed at a huge vehicle release, that will come in .4 but there are some cool new things in .35 such as a new weapons system. Weapons are more accurate now when crouching or lying down, adding to realism. New A-10 cluster bombs, new Iraq BRDM2 Spandrel tank killer as well as some new hand weapons like the Iraq Anti personel mines and Stinger missles for those pesky helicopters.
If I understand it correctly, that means you have to have the previous .3 release installed?
