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 or for Origin 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!

Sadly, Battlefield 1942 is no longer "in service" or online servers that is. To play online you will have to add a modified .exe file to play online. Single-player is still available to the users. Have fun!

I have problems launching this mod. Maybe my battle field 1942 in origin? Or what?

One of the greatest mods ever. Call of Duty MW2 is not 10% as fun.
