Higher quality menu and HUD icons for BF1942

I've made some small changes and fixes to menu and HUD icons for BF1942 and repacked them. This is a continuation upon a previous work by unexpectedpanda based on Merciless Creations mod. It is an improvement on all menu and HUD textures, most are doubled in resolution and you'll notice the difference if you play in higher than 800x600 resolution or widescreen resolutions. Download the menu_001.zip file, extract it and copy menu_001.rfa to <BF1942 DIR>\Mods\bf1942\Archives. If you don't want to use it anymore, just delete menu_001.rfa and you'll revert back to the old style.

ATTENTION: Using this modification is not allowed in BF1942 Liga matches according to their rules, so don't use it, if you plan to play in BF1942 Liga. Delete menu_001.rfa to revert back to classic icons.

Re: Higher quality menu and HUD icons for BF1942

Installed it from original package some time ago, looks cool, but only part of all icons is replaced.
Edit: thanks unexpectedpanda and tuia!

Possible, but you won't be able to play on pure servers like SiMPLE

Re: Higher quality menu and HUD icons for BF1942

With this small file i think you will get a "data differs from server" msg.
It will only work without "content check" servers.


... I made some maps, added custom textures, objects and modded some maps in the past, so i have some experience ...

It works on any server.
To use blood effects, reworked textures and better sound effects for every map download mod from Merciless Creations. However, you can't play with it on pure servers.

No, this file doesn't change any of game files, so CRC checksum remains unchanged (or how does content check work). I play on SiMPLE with it, no problems.

Re: Higher quality menu and HUD icons for BF1942

Content-check verifies CRC of client's game.rfa, objects.rfa, textures.rfa and map file, if I'm not mistaken.

When you add some blood effects, you modify the RFA files. If you modify the RFA files, then you cannot play on a pure server.

When you add some blood effects, you modify the RFA files. If you modify the RFA files, then you cannot play on a pure server.

Yes, you can't play in pure servers with modded textures or additional effects. It's possible to circumvent that, I'm not going to explain how because then content check would be useless to prevent cheating.
Try Merciless Creations BF1942 mod and join a server that does not have content-check enabled. You can switch between BF1942 pure and MC42 mod.

Re: Higher quality menu and HUD icons for BF1942

Improved ticket flags with higher resolution 64x64 textures and pixel by pixel corrected, some ticket flags looked ugly, especially american and canadian flags. Download again menu_001.zip. This is how they look now at original size:

Err... download again menu_001.zip, extract it and copy menu_001.rfa to <BF1942 DIR>\Mods\bf1942\Archives. This time it should be right. smile
Changed ticket flag icons to 32x32 textures, because 64x64 textures did not scale correctly. Fixed also M3 Gun Motor Carriage menu icon for Road to Rome:
