Benny Boy and all BF1942 nuts. Some tweaks and tips
Install the 1.3 patch for Bf1942 obviously
Overclock your videocard if it isn't yet ;)
Do a little CPU overclocking as well if you haven't yet, upping the fsb is the best
Install Direct x 9
Install the latest Nvidia Detonator 42.86 Direct x 9 beta drivers (available from guru3d)
Go to your bf1942 directory and click on mods/bf1942/settings and edit videodefault.con in your text editor, Add these lines to it
If you're running on an older pre Vertex and pixel shader capable card like a Geforce 2 series i'd set renderer.forceSwSkinning to 1. You can play around with this setting anyways to see if it works better for you.
the allowallrefreshrates line allows you to play in above 60 hz which is fantastic and give you the edge on everyone else playing in 60 as well. go into the video settings and you'll see all the resolutions and refresh rates available to you.
I'm running in 1024x768x85hz with all settings on full except shadows and environment mapping.
In sound play around with the settings but i have mine on medium quality 22 khz and 16 channels enabled. This speeds up gameplay a lot!!!
