Battlefield: 1942 is a tactical first-person shooter set in World War II. It introduces combined arms tactics, using tanks and dive-bombers, submarines and carriers, and machinegun nests with AA-artillery. Every aspect of WWII warfare will be accessible to a player and his friends from an FPS perspective, and the ultimate goal is to win enough campaigns to win the war.
FHSW has been released and there's a lot of new stuff which the devs haven't shown us in previous news. Sorry when I skip over a lot of the new things but I don't want to break moddb with a one million characters article. ;)
Junyo (aircraft carrier): planned as fast luxury passenger liner then redesigned to light aircraft carrier, low armour but decent AA capabilities
Yubari (light cruiser): experimental cruiser to test various new designs and technologies, was later also used in the war
Type 26 revolver
Type 10 signal pistol

As you've probably heard Gamespy shut down the online support for BF1942 which means either your game locks up or it doesn't show any servers when updating the in-game server browser. But as always the community puts EA to shame and within days a solution was available, huge thanks to the creator s[sk]. I included the fix into the FHSW installer so no additional steps are required to play online. Go to here if you want some information about the changes he did.
Where to play?
As you might or might not know FHSW is a pure multiplayer mod, the game crashes if you try to play singleplayer. There are two servers but you'll only see players on them at specific times.
The European server is generally populated on weekend evenings CET. Most players are online during "Events" which take place each Sunday at 7 pm CET:
Alternatively there's the Japanese server which is always full at about 8 pm JST. Be aware that you'll get kicked with a high ping which you usually have when connecting from Europe or the America East.
