WarFront 2.4


The full stand-alone version (not a patch) of 2.4 is now available for download! The file name says WarFront_2.5_Full, but that was an error on my part, it is the 2.4 release.

WarFront v2.4 Changelog (full stand-alone version, replaces WarFront 2.0)

Thie version is a stand-alone release, NOT a patch. It completely replaces the WarFront 2.0 mod and the 2.1, 2.2, and 2.3 patches for that mod. To keep installation problems to a minimum, delete your existing WarFront folder from your Mods directory, and extract the contents of this file to the same Mods directory...typically, "C:\Program Files\EA Games\Battlefield 1942\Mods\" (although your path may be different).

If you choose to keep your existing WarFront folder, overwrite with the contents of this file, but I assume no responsibility for any damages to any files on your computer that may occur during the extraction or overwriting process.
