I'm not quite sure, you should look it up on YouTube. Oh, and if you used Desura... it's just not going to work.

I really hope people still play this mod, because I'm still playing BF1942 and I was surprised when I saw how many servers still run for the game. I'm just glad it's mostly compatible, because otherwise it probably would've ended up in the hands of SkyBox labs, and after AoEII HD, I know we don't want that.
