Lotte.EoD-1's Avatar EoD 10th anniversary release - v2.40 finished
02/06/2012 by Lotte.EoD-1

Founded in 2002 EoD is getting 10 years old now.
It has been the first released mod for Battlefield 1942 and still has players all around the world!

Some guys of the team went to EA in the early years of the century and maybe they worked on BF-2, BC:Vietnam or BF-3, we just don't know.

EoD was growing from it's first release and got a lot of help from the community and other mods, especially from Battlegroup42, US Intervention MOD, Forgotten Hope and many many others.

Also EoD got famous cause of the nice music that was made just for the mod.
The talented musicians were Prozac Ltd., M'busy'Most and last but not least Taichi and some of us hear their music while driving car or at home.

But the most important help was the help from our players, from YOU.
Without your suggestions the mod wouldn't live anymore and no one would be motivated to improve anything.

Right now we want to say THANK YOU!
Thank you for the help and support, for your ideas, voices, maps, models, code, graphics, videos and much much more.
Also a big THANKS to all the mirrors who have hosted these large files with a lot of terrabytes of traffic!

We've got a little birthday present for you:

Of course there are many more fixes and improvements so take a look at the changelog for detailed information.
Very important!
It's a full version so you need to manually uninstall and delete any older version of EoD before installation!

Otherwise the game may crash or you can't connect to any server.

With Infinite map we've got one of the largest map Battlefield 1942 ever has seen.
We just know about one released map with that size of 4096x4096 but don't know if it ever was played anywhere.

The huge map is 4x as big as Operation Hastings so it will take a while to learn every mile of the landscape.

But we don't release anything as an 'experiment' and of course the map was well tested and special thanks go to my little son Sven (SirVen|EoD) for testing some hours with me and fixing all dificiencies.
He was the first who found the hidden easter egg in that map and we had a lot of fun, especially about his aerial acrobatics

We wish you a lot of fun with the new build and all the best!

The new year starts with some pretty news.

You don't need to walk through the jungle and look for a man named 'Charlie' anymore but you may look for 'Charleen'.

The new team class will be released with v2.40.
We all hope this will NOT destroy the game

Not much words. Just some facts and 2 videos.

This is the largest map ever made for EoD, and maybe one of five made for Battlefield 1942.

It has the size of Khe Sanh, Operation Hastings, Operation Prairie and Landingzone X-Ray together in one huge map!
It takes you about an hour to drive with a jeep to every corner of the map and about 3-4 minutes with a Mig-21.
The map size will be about 160MB (compressed).

Now we need a new code from EA for 256 players

You'll need actual hardware to play this map in coop.
With a 3 years old intel E8500 and nvidia GT9800-1024 I get 100 fps in CONQuest and about ~75 fps in COOP.
Older PC may have spf instead of fps

Lotte.EoD-1's Avatar EoD Classic v2.40 more maps
11/29/2011 by Lotte.EoD-1
New maps is what keeps the game alive so here are two more fighting areas.

The first is the Hoa Lo Prison, later sarcastically known to American prisoners of war as the 'Hanoi Hilton'. It was a prison used by the French colonists in Vietnam for political prisoners and later by North Vietnam for prisoners of war during the Vietnam War.
The map has been created with the help of old pictures and aerial photos.

Hanoi Hilton

The second map called Ghost Town is fictional. It's close combat in the jungle with a limited number of tanks and only 3 nearby control points - wich all can be captured.

Time for an update soldiers!

We've finished the 222th map and still are wondering if there's a limit in Battlefield 1942

So if you've finished eating BF-3 and want to come back to the old-school games you may test the fun of EoD classic with it's new features.

Some days ago we've reported on the new ingame maps and ike's new surfboard for Charly.
Some weapon sounds have been overworked and of course a lot of maps have got AI updates and improvements.

Well and here are some new areas to run riot:

Operation Hump has been created by Jackson.
It's a remake of Dice's map Hellendoorn and has been completely rebuild.
There are planes and helicopters on a closed airfield so noone can use them and it's a pure tank and inf map.
We think Jackson doesn't love the pilots very much

Operation Hump

Snipers never had been preferred in EoD cause sniping can destroy any gameplay fast and easy.
So fans of the crosshair will get their thrill in this map.


Based on an idea while watching a movie this map was born:

Bong Son Valley

We've got Halong Bay, Danang Bay and Baytown, so we needed a new name for this bay.
Cause we didn't find any it's simply called

The Bay

The end of Vietnam war was reached with the fall of Saigon on April 30, 1975.
The map just shows a small part of the city and is 100% fictive.

Fall of Saigon

Time has come to overwork An Lao Valley.
Here's the result:

An Lao Valley

We've got lots of ideas and still are working on some things so release will not be in 2011.
Early 2012 seems to be realistic and it will be a full version cause it's too much for a patch file.

Lotte.EoD-1's Avatar EoD Classic v2.40 InGameMap
11/14/2011 by Lotte.EoD-1
In v2.40 we'll have new InGameMaps for all 222 maps.
The new feature will help you tagging the control points and gives some information about the map.

Also we've improved the size of the combat area and InGameMap so it will be much more detailed.
