BF1942 Mod Desert Combat Final Released
6:00 AM | Conrad Quilty-Harper | Comment on this story

Desert Combat, the massive total conversion for Battlefield 1942, has reached final candidate status, and has been released to the public. This mod updates the World War 2 theme of Battlefield 1942 with modern day tanks, jeeps, helicopters and planes which can be played on larger and more complex maps, as well as the maps included with the full version of the game. Completion of the title has been a long time coming - the final version of the title, originally scheduled for 45 days after the release of the game's last version, came 210 days late.

Here's an section from a Q&A session with the mod developers at

bread: When .7 was released and everyone began counting the days until .8, what truly was going on behind the scenes?

SW: After the release of 0.7, the future of DC was very uncertain, so some of us decided to keep working on it just in case we were allowed to produce another build. We worked on it as we would have with any other DC build up until about 0.8b. When it became known that any release of 0.8 would not be official, several devs left development. A few of the devs stuck around to continue working on releasing a proper version to end production of the mod, and some testers contributed new material/fixed bugs/etc.

Unfortunately, a Mac version of the final release is currently unavailable; hopefully a version with a mac compatible installer will be made available soon. Until then, version 0.7 can be downloaded from through the link below. The full Q&A at is also available along with the PC/Linux version of the mod.
