or this link:


  • Unpack a zip-file in a place convenient for you.
  • After unpacking generate a key. Go to a folder with the game, launch _KEY_GEN_FFF_EA121.exe, choose the game BATTLEFIELD 1942, press GENERATE, then CHANGE KEY and Exit
  • After that run the file _START_BF1942.bat_ and the game will start itself and connect to the server BF.MAXNET.UA
  • When the game starts, don’t forget to change nickname in the settings.
  • Enjoy the game!

If nothing happens after the launch of _Start_BF1942.bat_, make sure your CD/DVD-ROM is connected. The game will not start without it. And if you don’t have it at all, install DAEMON Tools or UltraISO and create a virtual CD/DVD drive. Watch the video on how to make it here. After that the game must start with no issues.

Change to a widescreen resolution:

Widescreen display owners will have to adjust some file settings by themselves.

  • Go to the directory Battlefield1942\Mods\bf1942\Settings\Profiles\Custom and look for a file Video.con
  • Open this file via Notepad and change the parameter value "game.setGameDisplayMode" for the needed resolution, for example: "1366 768 32 60".
    1366 - width, 768 - height (insert your own resolution), 32 - colour-reproduction quality (16 or 32), 60 - frequency.
  • Save and close the file. Be sure to put a "read-only" attribute in file property.
  • Next search for file Battlefield1942\Mods\bf1942\Settings\VideoDefault.con
