Windows 10 installed DirectPlay before trying to run for me. After that, I used the Windows 10 compatibility wizard (properties of the icon) to get the environment configured properly. Seems to work fine.

I loved this game when I was a kid. So many hours of battles and just messing around. I know people figured out how to play online again, I found a clan that does it, but there's no way to register to their site and ask them questions on their threads so I have no idea how they are doing it, or if they even still play. I'd love to play online again. It's freeware now but I still have my discs and CD keys lol

If yous can find it, the Forgotten Hope mod for bf 1942 makes it so much better than its already amazing self. Its a realism mod, better physics, realistic armor penetration stats, way more vehicles, more weapons, just better all around. I still have the installs, saved from about 5 years ago. Cant wait to give it a try again

It works fine for me. I installed on two machines. No issues other than lack of servers.

This game Works!!! and no virus/trojan no junk. i've still got the original game disks (road to rome too) and cases but when I install them for some reason they don't work, this file does though. very well. comes with a patch you have to copy and paste yourself. Thank you myabandonware!

Anyone know if that Brandon Hemmy site is legit? I was thinking about downloading the game+Expansion pack or the customizable maps but got scared away by the .exe files?

this game is so cool i missed while it was on orgin cause i got my account set up after it got off orgin BUT i have bf4 so thats cool. its nice that they have it on this website so more people can get it and play it and MAYBE they might let it on orgin again so thats cool. thank you so much for this game even though it has somewhat crappy graphics its still a really cool game

this game is old school. I bought the original disc from amazon. i installed it and set it as administer but only a black screen. the patches didn't work either and origin doesn't support this game anymore. this is a legit download that works !

Works well, amazing game from the year when I was born. Could you also please upload BF1942 Secret Weapons of WW2 and BF Vietnam. Would be great to play these too. :D

For anyone running windows 8-10 and has Avast anti-virus and VLC media player. Disable your antivirus when installing, also the .bin file will register as VLC, so change the default opening app for the .bin to notepad. DO NOT OPEN THE NEW NOTEPAD BIN FILE. Click the setup.exe file and itll use .bin automatically. Congrats you can play :)

Downloaded and tested. Unzip and launch the setup.exe file. The download includes Mac (OS) support, these files will not unzip on a Windows machine but are not needed. It includes HD support and is patched to go online immediately. Download with confidence!

One of the best FPS games of all time, i think this was inspiration for the new battlefield was goin to release the next year.
The multiplayer is still solid and the graphics don't hurt my eyes.

How I hate all the new Battlefields which left their roots behind and became colladoody.
This along with its expansions and Vietnam was the best. Long live this game.
