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.

The game doesn't like my gaming PC. Every time I load a map. The game just crashes halfway through.

Hi all comrades and for you liamNL

I certified I tested DCGF last version 0.2D on Windows 7 64-bit with 2 AMD ATI Radeon HD 5700 (SLI) video cards and Windows 7 32-bit with 2 Nvidia 9800 GT (SLI) video cards and also on Windows 8 64-bit with 2 AMD ATI Radeon HD 5700 (SLI) video cards and no CTD (crash to deskop).

Did you read this detailed tutorial with pictures please?
Somua.com

It is very important to make a folder for decompressing the 2 parts of DC Global Front 0.2D Beta (Part 1 and Part 2), because if you try to decompress directly these 2 parts in your Battlefield 1942 Mods folder you could get problems in
function of your OS (cause writing rights about your security options by default about your account on these OS (windows7 and Windows8) ).

Best regard!

Hi all Comrades!
@liamNL
Did you try co-op Mod as "ATLASFIELD" wrote? Try this procedure please:
When you are in DCGF menu do:
Multiplay->Create game->coop (cooperation)->Choose a map for test->Run the game by clicking "Start local"

If the pixel fighter start a dcgf server for example, they can offer the origin patching mod?
Any date ideas for a Memorial Event?

In eve of destruction, battlegroup and 1918 it's possible too?!

Hi all Comrades and for you Buschhans my friend!

I hope in the future we could offer a new server on Somua.com for testing also Battlefield 1942 Mods.
At this time it is only a project but I think we are on the right way I can say!

It is very important that servers administrators install servers files (modified by TUIA SK and others) because it is the only solution for players with BF1942 CD version and players with BF1942 Origin version can play both on the same server.

As you know at this time with BF1941, FH; FHSW servers (but also on some DC and DC final servers) we are sure that players with BF1942 CD version and players with BF1942 Origin version can play both on the same server.

About dates for a "Memorial event" we could talk about that with chief (Marshall_Nord) of devs of DCGF.

Best regard!

Hi all comrades!
First all my congratulations to the devs about their excellent job. I test DCGF since its first release with great pleasure.
And also I greet with respect the memory of your friend "Sgt.Jake".
I have just wrote a very detailed tutorial about DCGF version 02D.
This tutorial explains how to successfully install Desert Combat Global Front version 02D Mod.
All steps are very detailed and with many pictures.
Text in easy English language (globish) is in italic characters.

Hi all Comrades and for you "Marshall_Nord"
Thank you very much!
But it is a great pleasure for me to try to help our young players because some of them often are not able to install a BF1942's Mod.
Only because many of our young players know only "modern" (actual) games like BF3...COD and unfortunately these new games are not map-able and not Mod-able.
And as you know for me BF1942 and its Mods are the best FPS from EA GAMES and "sherries on the cake " now BF1942 Origin version is 100% Free and you can modify "BF1942.exe" to play BF1942 and its Mods without to be connected to Origin.
I think the only solution to help our new young players is to write very detailed tutorials with many pictures!
Best regard!
