Re: what does the map installer do

If you tried to connect to the "New Maps Server" without it, you would consistently get "map not found."  Because the server is running a map that your game installation does not have.

The map installer performs a one-time delivery of additional maps to your BF1942 maps folder, such that you have the maps that the "New Maps Server" is running today.

If in the future the server needs to run additional or updated maps, there will be an updated map installer made available here, for you to run again and obtain those new or updated maps.
