Setup and installation

Follow the steps below to properly install Action Battlefield.

1. Double click the "Action Battlefield B1.0.exe" installer file.

2. Follow the remainder of the on-screen instructions and install the files in the required directory. You must install ActionBF in the following directory: "../Battlefield 1942/". Since you previously installed Battlefield 1942 in a directory unknown to the ActionBF installer, you must locate your "Battlefield 1942" game directory and select it as your installation folder.The default path of your Battlefield 1942 game folder is: "c:Program filesEA gamesBattlefield 1942" without the quotes. But if you intentionally installed the game elsewhere on your hard drive, please select the appropriate "Battlefield 1942" folder path for installing ActionBF. Click OK and then click NEXT to continue with the rest of the installation. I suggest that you let the installer copy the shortcuts and the Manual to your hard drive, so don't uncheck any options at the end of the installation procedure.

3. To confirm that you successfully installed Action Battlefield in the correct directory, open your "Battlefield 1942" game directory, open the "Mods" folder and look for a "ActionBF" folder inside (you should also see a "bf1942" folder right there.) If "ActionBF" is indeed present there, you did a successful installation.

4. If you do not see "ActionBF" inside this "Mods" folder, then you probably specified the wrong directory to install. Follow the "Removal" procedure below and reinstall Action Battlefield.

5. Once the installation is complete, you can start Action Battlefield by using the shortcut created on your desktop by the installer. You can alternatively launch Battlefield 1942 and then use the "Custom game" menu to activate ActionBF.

Note: since Action Battlefield is a modification based on Battlefield 1942, you must insert your Battlefield 1942 play disc in order to play ActionBF.

It works if you join an online game. Don't like the loading screens liked the idea of the movable ammo box. Bit of a ball ache to move about though. Not sure why you'd want this mod though, as the origional is so good.
