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

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.

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!

Would be glad if we organise a memorial event for our deceased friend Sgt.Jake? I think I was the only known from Germany with whom he had to do.
Have liked with it written and acted. He was a sympathetic type.
REQUIEM FOR A DREAM is one of my favourite songs too.

Hi all comrades and for you my friend "Buschans"
I agree with you to organise a memorial event dedicated about memory of "Sgt.Jake" unfortunately deceased.
But did you test DCGF server because you do (must) install server files modified by TUIA SK (and others)?. Because it is the only solution to play DCGF with players with BF1942 CD version and BF1942 Origin version. I want say players with BF1942 CD version and players with BF1942 Origin version can play both on the same server.
Best regard!

Good point. If you have your old game, play with it, we are working in it, however, some members of the team tested the game in origin and until I know they havent problems. SO I think is Ok. :)
