[bf1942] Server good, client bad.

Plain and simple, the lack of shader support. If you don't wanna upgrade,
you can't play the new pretty games that rely on that technology you lack.

I got the server running, seems to be pretty nice - quick startup, seems
stable, but I can only allow 4 players due to my bandwidth lol.
Can't even run the client due to obscene Nvidia requirements. Needing
a 5800+ or FX card just to run seems to be a bit extreme. My older
Ti4200 isn't supported, despite it still runs stuff like BF:V clean and
smooth as can be. Plus these clunky Nvidia drivers blow compared to
the starstorm ones I was using. Nice way to cut out a chunk of users.
No way I'm buying a new card just to run this game.
