Also 25 new static objects will come with v2.50.

The devs have not been lazy and we also get 7 new and 2 revised maps.
Some of them have been presented already.

About 40 maps will have some bugfixes and new/improved AI.

Altogether it will be a very nice release and we think to get it complete September 2012.

Installation requires

Should work on any computer running Windows with .NET Framework 2.0 installed - Windows 98 or later.

1. Download the program

2. Extract the content of the .rar anywhere you want to have the updater installed.

To start the program, launch Custom-maps Updater.exe inside the extracted Custom-maps Updater folder.

Simple how to use guide

When you first start the program, it should look something like this (depending on your operating system).
Start by clicking the "Select Battlefield 1942 Folder" button.

In the window that appears, simply locate your Battlefield 1942 folder
(in my case, C:\Program Files\EA GAMES\Battlefield 1942\), select it, and click OK.
The location you choose will be saved and you won't need to enter it again when you want to update in the future.

Now that the program knows where your Battlefield 1942 folder is, press the "Check for Updates" button
and the program will try to recognize which custom-maps files you have and which you're missing.

Now the marked text in the image below will tell you if there are files to update or not.
If the "Update" button is clickable it means that you can update. Click it and you will see that the bar starts progressing,
when it's done you should receive a message saying that the update was completed.

You can also check the "Show Map List" (look at the picture downstairs) if you want to see a full list of all the custom maps and which
you have installed and fully updated.

If there are updates to the program, it will tell you so when you start it,
but you will have to update it manually and all updates will be posted in this thread.
