OTHER ISSUES

Content check currently only works with official Battlefield 1942 and RTR files/maps. If you try to run a server with a user created map/mod installed and turn content check on, clients might not be able to join.

If you try to connect to a Road to Rome server that is running a Road to Rome map and you don't have Road to Rome installed, you will see a "data differs from server" message.

Not once in that whole article did I read anything saying if you blast the hell out of a rudder on a plane with an AA gun, does it take damage or get impaired.I don't play this game anymore, because whoever has the planes win.

I am impressed that you guys waste both yours and my bandwidth on writing crap like that! I mean, there are enough idiots on the web as it isWell, I still like the game, even though I think it´s just an expensive version of Codename Eagle...

It's obvious to me that most of you don't know what you are talking about. Battlefield is a great game, especially with the vast number of excellent mods that you can freely download for this game. Of course, you need to have better grammer before you should even think of judging such an excellent game. Also, anonymous, you need to take care of your computer. It's causing the problems, not the game.
