  Yes, BOTH of them, and they are available via map vote for those who download and join the backup Moongamers server!  




A Multi-Installer was crafted for your convenience.  It will Install

So I went ahead with the straightforward "download, drop in levels folder", however running the map on both my created game and the moon alternate server causes my game to go BOOP BOOP and crash.

I have failed at computering somehow...

  The development of 'Invasion of Britain' is ongoing, with Coop mode being added.  It has been tested extensively.  Older operating systems or hardware have had issues.  You may fall into this category, I know you play DC but this one map is more resource heavy than that actually.


  The best help I can offer here is letting you know that no errors were likely on your end so you can stop fiddling with things.  This release leaves a small fraction of Battlefield 1942 capable users behind.  Your specifications are desired for future releases and debugging by the development team.


  We, thankyou for trying.  This installer covers everything on the server, for those who want to attend events on that server please download with confidence!  Within this package there is a Santaland map named SL_Woods.  It is not in rotation on the server but left within the mod package.  If selected your PC is likely to act like you just added Nitrous Oxide to the Carburetor and you will be looking for the power switch.  Much worse than than the potential error message the 'Invasion' map may display.  We have consistently served the Santaland Mod which in fact never left the Beta stage.  One small map file left behind by the original developer that doesn't quite work is left in time for a future developer to see, and fix. 


 It is in that spirit that this package is offered.  


 We're anxious to get as many players as possible for this new map while it is being served!

HI Harry


Did you use the exe installer that Posi made? Battlefield is picky. If you did a manual placement.


1. Download these .RFA files
2. Delete any previous versions of these maps
3. Copy and Paste into the following folder:
    C:\Program Files (x86)\EA GAMES\Battlefield 1942\Mods\bf1942\Archives\bf1942\levels



Did you place the map starting with mods?

We should add that our combination installer uses the latest revision of this map. 


A 'stand alone' install for 'Invasion of Britain' would use the file/link below.  MODDB does not YET list this version though it has been submitted. 


Invasion of britain  ( only )  :  https://drive.google...d6058FGvLHptNeY


The installer, will overwrite any prior versions of files. The entire purpose of an installer is to place the correct files in the correct location and it was tested thoroughly and passed all test across multiple operating system installing correctly for CD / Abandonware / Origin.


The installer can be used as a ZIP extractor for manual placement for advanced users by choosing or creating a neutral directory to extract to and moving the desired maps from their to the levels directory or the Santaland Mod to the mod directory manually.  This is recommended over other methods as other versions of these files might exist online and differ from the files being served.

HI Harry


I glad you enjoyed the mod.


You have similar system spec. I have windows 7 with 32 gig of memory and gtx 660 video card.  The only I really would consider is adding more memory.  8 Gigs of ram is small for the more modern games which are designed with 16 gigs of memory as a minimum. That could be you bottle neck for alot thing Harry. Also memory is easy fix and usually easy to install.  If our own mental patient can install memory you can! :coo:.   Windows 10 is memory hog. 


I would buy or get a dual memory pack. it bect to put in matching pair of memory sticks.

Enjoyed is an understatement Squirrel. This is what BF1 could have been and when I figure out time travel I will convince young squirrel to do this back in the full server days.
Thanks for the ram advice. Black friday is coming!


EDIT: Black Friday has passed. Boxing Day is coming!
