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!

Please install the latest version of both BF1942 and BF1918. For the main game it's 1.61b and for BF1918 you've to download all 3 parts of version 3.1 which are linked right above this comments section.

Make sure to have these installed:
BF1942: version 1.61b
BF1918: version 3.1

Any other version can result in problems or errors like you've experienced.

You can either start the mod from inside Battlefield 1942. Select the Custom Game tab and there you can switch to Battlefield 1918. For a working shortcut you should add the following to the target line in the shortcut's prpoerties:

+restart 1 +game bf1918

The target read something like: "C:\Program Files\Battlefield 1942\BF1942.exe" +restart 1 +game bf1918

Also make sure to have the latest patch (1.61b) for the main game installed.

This really is an exellent mod, but sadly no one is ever online.....

I just wanted to say if you would like a ww1 game to play online then maybe try out Verdun online. It is a very good 1st person shooter and you can play the beta for free on kongregate!

I am advertising a bit....i admit it but i just wanted to give some advice.

PLEASE do not burry this comment into the ground!

Some of the developers of Verdun were well known in the BF1918 community. If I remember correctly the inside1918 homepage even had an interview with Verdun dev member Leonidas but since our site went offline it's no longer available.

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.
