DC Global Front is a mini-mod for the legendary Desert Combat mod for Battlefield 1942. It adds new armies (faction), vehicles, hand weapons and maps to the DC core build. Some of the DC/vanilla 42 maps have been renamed and reworked to better suit the GF environment. Global Front features a series of maps that depict individual scenarios that may or may not be connected to the other maps. There is no overall story line to connect everything together. GF is intended to be played in coop game mode (due to limited players with such an old game) but Conquest and Objective are fully supported. This is the first public release of Global Front and it is, unfortunately, still in a Beta form. There are many WIP/unfinished elements that our small team wishes to finish. We intend to continue and improve Global Front; adding to the build so long as players want new content and the team is enthusiastic to continue our “hobby”.

You will need the following to play DC Global Front:
A CLEAN install of both: Battlefield 1942 v. 1.61 & Desert Combat v. 0.7

The DC Global Front mod's 0.2D beta release is presented as a zip file for installation on both Windows and Mac OS. This is a full install, so delete any existing DCGF folder.

Part 1 includes the core build files and one map: Motor Pool. Part 2 includes the map files.
The DCGF 0.2D release is dedicated to our late friend and mod team member Jake Buitenwerf (sgtjake) who died tragically, one year ago on this date.

For play DC Global Front, you need Desert Combat 0.7 at first. Because it is a mod mod.

Is 1.61b required? Or just 1.61?

They say 1.61, but I doubt it.

I know that. I think it might be because my current BF1942 installation isn't the same installer i had before.

I will never leave this installer, it lets me change resolution directly in the menus.

There is a solution against the gamespy shutdown. You can play all the mods online and the server will be back.
You need at first the basic game BF 1942 –> 1.61 Patch (only if you have the release 2002 edition) –> Online Patch 161b (Anthology) –> Origin Players: Team-simple.org or for CD Players Team-simple.org (thats for find back the server in your Gamespy Browser, fix your widescreen, and give compatibility to Win 7/8 Users) –> go in the bf1942 folder and overwrite the old bf1942.exe with the new one –> right click on the Desktop BF 1942.exe –> Properties –> compatibility –> set start as Win 1998 (v) and as Admin (v) –> click ok thats it you are back again online!

For all people, if the mod still crashing, download this file, this should fix the problem:
