Map Vote

Could map vote be turned off by default on simple server? It's distracting as shit, and a vote passes maybe 1/100. The other 99/100, it just takes up room on your screen and breaks concentration. Thanks

Re: Map Vote

 
Until that day arrives, you could drop this file into your "Battlefield1942\Mods\bf1942\Archives" folder.
It will move the mapvote box out of the way. There is a post here regarding this mod.

That would actually improve the server, so the answer Is no.

Just press 7 or 8 and it's gone.

It takes how long, ... 0,173 secondes?

It's not the time it takes, Arkosino. It's what you are busy doing when that thing pops up. Highly annoying if you ask me..

Re: Map Vote

the votes never works, it would be a good a idea to just vote one time per map.

Some of that may be from joining late in the map, and want the full experience.

"The map is 5 minutes from ending, but I want to play the full map, so I'm going to start a mapvote. The 50 other players on the server? Fuck 'em, I don't care, they can replay the map for another 40 minutes. I WANNA PLAY THIS MAP".

- This is a nice summary of the average BF1942 player in 2021 lmao

Re: Map Vote

Aaaah yes, the very annoying vote that always manages to appear at the most critical moment mid fight, just to distract you enough to make you lose a duel.

I've been using this for years and IMO it's better than nothing at all...

https://drive.google.com/file/d/14S7tgm … sp=sharing

Backup your originals in case you don't like it, or if you take part in bf-league.  Copy/paste menu.rfa and font.rfa in to:

C:\Program Files (x86)\EA GAMES\Battlefield 1942\Mods\bf1942\Archives

These two .rfa files will remove it at the expense of some other missing in-game text...

https://ibb.co/frNbKST
https://ibb.co/pQv1njz
https://ibb.co/52BSwRW
https://ibb.co/58gXVx0

It could probably be done better by editing a meme file with menu editor, I just cba messing.  At least this way you can still vote, just watch out for the yellow text at the bottom left of your screen.

Or by just editing the lexiconAll.dat file to selectively remove what you don’t want to see. Probably the simplest way.
