We never asked for those maps and those maps are not getting played a 
lot at all.
It has nothing todo with the modding of BF1942, since those bugs are 
serious bugs within the engine mostly.
I dont say i dont want it to be realistic, the fact is Dice invests time 
to things, the community doesnt even want.
And no pixelshooting is not fixable with a mod, since it is not possible 
to make dynamic rendered skies.
CPU usage is just ugly on some linuxsystems, when empty -> see other thread.
I know BFTV is possible, though with low quality tbh and with a big 
And yeah, why can't we blame DICE, I do blame dice for not fixing those 
bugs, it's just ugly.
But probably EA takes a big part in this, since MoHAA and some more 
games contain a lot of bugs also.
I would point to other companies who are really doing their best to keep 
the games alive, constantly patching,
constantly listening to inputs fromout the community and you see those 
games live and keep on living, though
this doesnt bring money into the pocket, so in fact you can't blame 
EA/Dice for being commercial, which they
certainly are. A bummer imo :)
And yeah, looking forward to see some good versions of BFpro, hopefully 
this will satisfy the community enough, if
it gets used in competitions.
