NEWS / Website security updated
May 22, 2024, 10:35:04 AM

Howdy folks,

Since the launch of the forum we've been running on the rather archaic HTTP protocol without the extra security layer, like in the old days of the internet. While this may work perfectly fine for a lot of people, it may become a security risk as data packets are not encrypted, especially when using insecure networks such as public Wi-Fi hotspots. Also, most browsers display a big fat warning when trying to join a website that isn't encrypted, and warn you that your data could be stolen by attackers. Especially now with data breaches all over the news, we should consider your privacy a big priority.

That is why we are here to announce that we have updated our website security to modern SSL/TLS standards, which means that from now on our website uses the more secure HTTPS standard. Your browser should display that your connection to the website is secure with a valid certificate authorized by a trustworthy authority.

We've also updated our databases to PHP 8.2, which should come with increased site speed and security, as far as we're aware.

Take care and see you on the battlefield!

NEWS / IMPORTANT: Gametracker Server Scanning Issue
October 09, 2023, 02:48:07 PM
Dear community,

As of now, Gametracker is having problems that results in all associated servers appearing as offline, unnamed and/or with zero players online. This problem does not just affect our Battlefield 1942 server, but affects all servers and games tracked by Gametracker. Gametracker developers are aware of the current problems, but have not provided server owners with an update or an ETA regarding a fix. While this problem may affect the tracking of your statistics on the Gametracker page, luckily it does not affect the visibility of our server on the Battlefield 1942 master server, and thus the server is still visible in the in-game server browser for Battlefield 1942, if you have installed the latest master server patch.

Regarding the widgets on this website, the current banners depend on Gametracker data, and thus are not displaying correctly due to the current issues with Gametracker. We are looking into alternatives, such as While doesn't show the same in-depth information as Gametracker, it provides us with widgets for displaying on the website, so you know who's online and what map is playing.

Thank you for your understanding and see you on the Battlefield!

The author of this tool -- Arkyliën -- has written a program that will download missing maps rather than showing the "MAP NOT FOUND" error when joining a server. The program is still experimental, but the first version works as advertised!

Description from ModDB:
DataField42 version 1

A Battlefield 1942 tool for automatic map/mod downloads.
The tool is still in a very early stage.
For sure there are bugs and missing features. Please report them to me (you can do that here)!

Download of a map from the central database after connecting to a server instead of the message "MAP NOT FOUND". (requires that the client has the mod already)

Yesterday we upgraded to the latest version of SMF, which seems to be a huge leap forwards in terms of usability!  :) This upgrade also made the old forum theme obsolete, as it is no longer supported for newer versions of the forum. That's why we are transitioning to a new general look. First steps have been made so far, but more tweaking is  to be expected in the following weeks!

Be sure to leave feedback on features you like and dislike, and we will try to tweak them accordingly!
Dutch Police evacuated the TEFAF art fair in Maastricht after a possible armed robbery. We know so far that no one got hurt in the process. Robbers didn't seem to even bother to hide their identities and went in Peaky Blinders-style and tried to smash in showcases containing diamonds, while an armed accomplice tried to scare off bystanders. So far we don't know if the robbers took anything, but police confirmed they have two suspects in custody.

This is something I have only seen before in movies or in games. Kind of wild to go for a diamond heist in the middle of the day without a proper disguise!

Recently the master server stopped working, which means that all people that are still on the OLD master server do not have a working server browser as of the end of February. Why is this a problem? You won't be able to refresh or update the ingame server browser list anymore because the master server doesn't communicate between the client (you) and the servers (the BF1942 servers to be exact). You can still play on the servers you have added to your favourites, and you can still add servers MANUALLY with the ADD SERVER button, but you won't have a functional server browser anymore. How did this happen? Apparently the guy that gave us a new master server after the GameSpy server stopped working got fed up with the community and just quit, which means all people that have installed the GameSpy patch have now an obsolete patch.

Luckily, the Battlefield 1942 community consists of some great masterminds, and a group of server owners and administrators have come up with a patch for the game. It replaces the old GameSpy patch with a new patch that connects Battlefield 1942 to a new master server that is here to stay. Also this patch comes with a few additional fixes that should make the game more pleasant for everybody. I'm attaching the ReadMe under this post.

We're asking all of you to update your game accordingly, so that you guys can continue being part of this great community. Please use the links below to download and install this new fix:
