"like"?` ;D since when do software "like" things?
Didnt you understand? is a figurative way of speaking,

you got it all wrong.  :-*


 ;)

botton line, EA has shit servers with no control whatsoever and they cant even be bothered to install basic scripts like kicking for minus score or when a number of tks hapen. not surpising really.
People are autokicked after a number of TKs or for minus score. You can also initiate a vote kick. I did so a few times yesterday and they always worked. Free game will always have ass-holes, just like free forums.

it didnt work in all the servers I joined, there were guys with -56 and still spanwkilling their teammates, and the server didnt kick them. Vote kick sometimes works , sometimes doesnt. Since there are 2 ways to kick a player (team kick and "general" kick), one needing 20 people and the other 33, players get confused and often use the "general" kick, wich needs half the server, not half the team, to kick somebody.

How do I download BF1942.
I already have origin installed.
http://store.origin.com/store/eaemea/sv_SE/html/pbPage.demos-sv_SE

click the yellow download button :)
Does not work. each time you post a link, it only takes you to the home page.
he needs to go to demo's and find bf1942 in the list and click it.

Working Origin Install Instructions:

1. Download the FULL version of Forgotten Hope v7 from
http://forgottenhope.warumdarum.de/downloads.php? [forgottenhope.warumdarum.de]
2. Once all the files are finish downloading, you will notice that you are not able to run the exes. Until this is fixed, you will have to use Universal Extractor (I hear 7-zip works as well) to extract the files into individual folders.
3. Once you extract the files, you should have 3 folders, part 1, part 2, and part 3. Copy the contents of part 2 and 3 into part 1. Overwrite if necessary.
4. Move the mods folder from part 1 into your Battlefield 1942 folder.
5. Download this
http://www.moddb.com/mods/fhrmod/downloads/widescreen-and-no-compatibility-fixes-for-fh [moddb.com]
Ignore the widescreen fix, copy the objects.rfa file into your FH/Archives folder and overwrite the other one.
6. Launch the game through your selected method, be it origin or a shortcut.
7. Use the tab in your server browser to select the mod that you have installed. All servers running that mod should show up.

Only a few servers are up at the moment, if you wish to join mine,
Forgotten Hope .7 ORIGIN
216.176.190.74
14567

I'm running on a dedicated box with a Galactic Conquest server as well.

Your game should be working now, make sure you tweak your graphics setting and fix your resolution and FOV for a better experience

Forgotten Hope is a bit wonky, it will crash on map loads occasionally, I have my server on a 45 second load timer for this reason.

not needed, no one cares about the scores since bf42 dont have any progression system
People could just re-connect to the server and TK again.

They could have turned FF off of course, the game would be more fun.

who is talking about scores? griefing is not about scores, is to piss off players, and if you ban the Ht or cd-key, they cant reconnect again ;). I know its a requirement to leave common sense behind when working for DICE, but please, you HAVE to see it.

"have" to see what? that it is annoying with griefers? well... did you just discover shooters or?

did you just make a post actually just saying "bad people are mean. I dont want to be TKed"?

and what does dice have to do with it?

so, EA can stop griefers on their servers, but they dont because, acording to you, we have to get use to them?

nvm, I cant talk to a wall ;D
