Battlefield: 1942 is a tactical first-person shooter set in World War II. It introduces combined arms tactics, using tanks and dive-bombers, submarines and carriers, and machinegun nests with AA-artillery. Every aspect of WWII warfare will be accessible to a player and his friends from an FPS perspective, and the ultimate goal is to win enough campaigns to win the war.

MODIFIED BATTLEFIELD 1942 EXECUTABLE AND .RFA FILE/S README
WHAT IS THIS?
=> This modified file/s will able you to play up to 256 bots in Coop mode!
NOTE: BACKUP THE NECESSARY FILES BEFORE CHANGING ANYTHING!
=> Copy and replace BF1942.exe on main Battlefield 1942 folder (i.e. C:/Program Files/EA GAMES/Battlefield 1942/).
=> Copy menu_001.rfa on Battlefield 1942's Mods/bf1942/Archives folder (i.e. C:/Program Files/EA GAMES/Battlefield 1942/Mods/bf1942/Archives/).
=> Copy and replace Game.rfa on Battlefield 1942's Mods/bf1942/Archives/bf1942 folder (i.e. C:/Program Files/EA GAMES/Battlefield 1942/Mods/bf1942/Archives/bf1942/).
=> Change the indicated drive folder if your Battlefiled 1942 was not installed on default C:/Program Files.
=> In order to play online, patch your current Battlefield 1942 installation FIRST either you are using Retail (v1.61b) or Origin (v1.612) version with Gamespy patch by s[sk] and tuia:
=> For other Battlefield 1942 mod/s of your choice, you have to edit the game.rfa (Found in Mods/"modname"/Archives/bf1942 folder) using WinRFA, select AIdefault.con, find "aiSettings.setMaxNBots" and change 64 to 256.
=> Make sure the computer had enough processor clock speed as AI/bots consumed a lot of CPU bandwidth during gameplay. It is better to have a single-core processor of at least 3.2GHz or higher, than a multiple-core processor with only 1.6GHz.
=> There's a possibility of Crash-to-desktop (CTD) when the number of players set to 256 in Coop mode during gameplay. REDUCE the number IF necessary.
=> This modified bf1942.exe is for Retail version only. Origin version will come later.
