BF 1942 AI Enhancement Mod Final Release!

Dnamro tell us about his work on the BF 1942 AI Enhancement Mod: After many years and several requests, I have finally updated Realplayer AI enhancement mod for BF1942: BF 1942 AIE Mod Download

Copy the file to your hard drive, unzip it and then set it up in your Battlefield 1942\mods folder as mods\Realplayer.
not mods\Realplayer\Realplayer

I have combined Grenademan's AI enhancement mod with singleplayer support for all standard BF1942 maps.

I will do an installer when I get a chance. This way, it can be installed on other than windows systems.

If you want to disable targeting corsshairs, the files and instructions are in the readme.

This is mostly Grenademan's work from his AIE42 mod. He used Realplayer as the start of his mod and then went on from there. But, he left out the AI from multiplayer DICE maps that had been created by the BFSP community. So, I just combined his mod improvements with the AI support for the rest of the DICE maps. The previous version of Realplayer was a WIP that I had on my hard drive when Filefront dropped it. There were plenty of other mods that used the Realplayer improvements to include BF42, so I did not see a reason to clean it up and release a new version. I would just direct people to the other mods. However I when found AIE42 on my hard drive that is when it came to me to use his mod to update Realplayer. I have not heard from Grenademan in a long time, but I am sure he would like to know that his work is being continued on. The advantage of Realplayer over other mods is that it's a small mod for those that want to enjoy BF1942 with the best possible singleplayer support.

As far as adding support for other mods, that would involve some work integrating the changes without interfering with the existing mod functionality.

On the other hand any BF1942 maps can be added to mod just by extracting and repacking the map with the MDT tools to change this line in the map's menu\init.con file as:

game.setMapId "Realplayer"

Now, as far as possible future improvements, the subs and PT boats could be made to fire torpedoes. For another mod, I set up subs with deck guns and enabled the bots to use the subs. As long as I did not have them try to submerge the subs it worked fine and the bots could fire the torps. It's just a matter of having time to make the changes and considering that subs don't play a big role in the game, it did not seem like it was worth the effort.

Also, it would be good to make the maps from the expansion packs (Road to Rome and Secret Weapons) enabled for realplayer as part of the mod available as a separate download. They are no longer sold or supported by EA but can only be found in then BF1942 collection from a game resellers to include Amazon. Now that would be fun to be able to play all the expansion pack maps in Realplayer.
