About the mod


The total conversion modification Battlefield 1918 (or BF1918 for short) takes Battlefield 1942 into a whole new scenario, the first world war. Next to historically correct equipments and vehicles, we recreated the atmosphere of these WW1 battlefields as close as we can, keeping in mind the game we are working with. To achieve this, we have drastically changed the gameplay from the original game like so that you must now rely on teamwork, artillery, trenches and slow vehicles.

Battlefield 1918 combines fun with historical correctness, gaming with history, the memory of one of the most terrifying wars mankind has ever known, with fun had by people over the internet. Next to the battles fought on the Western front between mostly the Germans, the British and the French, wealso cover other scenarios, such as the Turkish battlefields at Gallipoli, the Eastern front where Germany and Austria-Hungaria fought against Russia, the Italian front and lately the battles in Africa. Next to land- and airbattles using historic weapons and vehicles, we also included the naval aspect of WW1 in a broad spectrum, as this was the time in which the great battleships still were the absolute rulers of the seas.This mod focus on Multiplayer, but has also Singleplayersupport.

For a lot more detailed overview we're very proud to gratefully present a work of our former member Fritz_Kempf aka Sniper-Snoop who has put countless hours of efforts into a very detailed and informative wiki entry at forumeerstewereldoorlog.nl which contains a lot of additional informations about this modification and it's content. We recommend it very much to anybody who not only wants to know something about the mod itself but also it's historical background - though it's written in Dutch the linked translator will give you the possibilty to gain all of the knowledge included. Please note that it's currently in a pre 3.1 state as our former member sadly had to retire from developing due to a lack of time.

Good god, how long has it been? You've been counting of course and it's been exactly 366 days (mind the leap year, folks) since our last news. Hooray! Hooray? No, in fact it's no good news and making fun of it is making it even worse. For our hearts as well as for our souls and to prevent any winter depressions we've got a cool (Get it? Cool!? Classical one) hint for all of you in the middle of this text. So read carefully like your teacher has always told you.

First we would like to draw your attention on a news that has been published by EA itself 3 weeks ago. Most shoud know it by now but as telecommunication in our favorite time of history was still in its infancy the field messenger took longer than usual to inform us about this case:

Battlefield 1942 for free on EA's Origin

As there's always a hook with things which are available for free, EA is offering a free one with this free version, too. At least it is free and free sounds good, right? But owners of the retail game, oldschool with discs, manual installation and all this crazy physical stuff are technically curtained off of the fresh meat delivered by Origin. Every party on it's own so to say. On a side note modifications like (I'm taking a random mod here as an example to show that we're not biased in any form) Battlefield 1918 for example are not guaranteed to run with the Origin version of BF42 but it has been reported that there shouldn't be any special issues. Just choose the mod folder in BF42's directory to put a mod's files there and it should run fine. Soldiers, if you've always sought refuge in complaining that you do not own the base game you're now no longer relieved from duty.

Xmas1918 (Version 2008)

Now up to the really cool stuff I've promised you in the beginning. Some of you of course already know this little gem in the history of BF1918 gimmicks but some people could also be new to our business. Romantic snow sceneries have always warmed our hearts in the festive month and have brought fun and joy to the battlefield since 2006. It's even rumored that this mini-mod has brought peace on earth 2 times, cooled down the climate warming and caused the Christmas truce. So take part in a nice Slay-ride, snowball fights with your friends and foes and try to meet Santa coming to town, checking who was nauthy and nice. Get the latest version from 2008 and put it on top of your already installed BF1918 experience to sweeten up your Christmas Season.

Ho Ho who wants some? Non-homoerotic Slay-rides


Conclusion of the day/year

The last topic for today's news and most probably for this year from our side is a bit sad indeed. We're celebrating our first anniversary of "No News" as we've been successfully able to manage to not publish any news in the last 366 days. And there are in fact no big news to spread from our side as the modification is considered finished from a dev-team's point of view. We're peeking into the commentary section from time to time so feel free to post any issues or remarks in your personal relationship with BF1918.
Mod of the Year Awards
The end of the year is as usual the time for the mighty Mod Of The Year award voted by you, the plebs! We're not exspecting anything less than several homages and canonizations but for the beginning you can start with clicking on the little vote-button above and see what color it will change to. Isn't it exciting?


Season's greetings from the whole former development team and we would like to wish you all a Merry Christmas, Fröhliche Weihnachten, Zalig kerstfeest, Joyeux Noël and a Happy New Year!

There are no constantly online servers as far as I know but in the last week I managed to play on a rather active server in the European afternoon hours. Some servers also host the mod by mapvote (vote a BF1918 map there to change the servers running mod) though they won't show up in the BF1918 server filter if it's currently running a different mod's map. Look out for e.g. "multi-mod" in a server's description.

Just wondering if anyone's had the following problem:

I was playing the map "Battleaxe 1918" the other day, and it was very slow to load. When the game finally loaded, it crashed to desktop after a couple of minutes.

I turned off my antivirus and the loading time was better, but the game still crashed shortly after loading.

I tried turning off a few more background processes and was finally able to play the map, but there was still a problem. I could play on the ground without any trouble, and I was even able to fly an airplane for a short while. But when I flew a plane for an extended amount of time, eventually the game crashed to desktop.

Anyone have a fix for this?

I've had this same problem on other maps (Brusilov Offensive, Bocage 1918, Chateau Thierry, Toska Airbattle)where flying the planes would cause the game to crash to desktop, but turning off my antivirus seemed to be enough. In Battleaxe, that's not working though.

Oh, I forgot to mention I was playing in Single Player mode.

Hey, Singleplayer mode ist not fully supported by this mod. If you want to play with bots you have to choose the Multiplayer tab ingame. There you create a game by selecting 'CO-OP' as game mode and add the map you want to play to the list on the right. (the list on the left shows all the maps available with bots)

Start the match by clicking Local Game in the lower right corner.

Hey cennedy1457, thanks for replying to me so quickly. I did like you said and picked Multiplayer,selected the map Battleaxe 1918, and picked Co-Op mode.

I had to turn off my anti-virus as well as several other background programs, but once I did, I was able to fly planes without crashing to desktop. I tried all of the planes, flew them all for extended amounts of time and they all seemed to work fine.

Thanks for helping me out and for checking up on questions about this old mod! It's always been one of my favorites.

PS - separate questions I thought of later:

What maps are the Nieuport 11 and S.E.5a fighter planes on?

And what maps have the Browning Auto-5 shotgun? I've only found it in "Next Stop, Berlin"

Glad it's working!

For the other questions I can't give you a certain answer as we never had a list of these. It could be that some can only be found on maps without bot support. I checked some maps myself on my first guesses without any luck. You'll have to continue looking around ;)

Mod should work with the newest regular patched and Origin version. At least I've been successfully playing with both setups.

PS. When i try to play singleplayer on (example) Bellau Woods, it works fine as heck, but when i try to play on another map (such as those Bismarck Island or something), it crashes while loading! Please help with this issue.

Matches versus bots are only supported through the Multiplayer tab: Multiplayer > Create Game > Choose "COOP" and your map

Singleplayer and/or campaign won't work in most cases since it would've needed extra optimization and the multiplayer option above basically gets the same results. It simply wasn't worth the effort which is why every mod (I know of) with bot support uses this workaround.

A WWI mod is an original idea, there aren't much games about that war and i think not everything should be about "unitedstateans" (i personally consider the english term "american" an insult to the rest of america being myself argentinean) and their sense of "supercountry" which is gonna save us from evil that shows every game of WWII.
