I found a few places with the full version, but it is >300mb.

Do you mind the large download, or did you want the smaller patch?

It appears that there is no smaller patch.

Here is a mirror for desert combat .38.

They make the lines fake cause they want you to join their subscriber service which has no lines and super fast downloads BUT you have to pay them money. All they want is the money, they care less about you and the files.

http://files.ausgamers.com:81/battle...ullInstall.exe

here's a direct link to a copy of the file on an australian server, i got speeds of up to 450KB/s on it so it took me a whole 13 minutes to download.

Blade, there is nothing fake about those lines. Considering the number of people which download files, and the number of bytes transferred daily, they need to buy insane amounts of bandwidth and server space. By buying a subscription, you get access to their premium servers, and they spend the money on other servers. Its a great idea that has been working for a while now.

It is good to see someone who is open-minded about gamespy. The lines are long and frustrating, but they are a useful alternative to extremely slow download speeds.

like i said it's an "australian server", infact it's a file planet mirror, just hosted on a server that is not in the file planet loop, so most likely they have disabled ip addresses from non-australian traffic.

I don't mind the lines too much, cos I live in Aus, when I want a file the wait is normally about 2 min tops. I got the E3 movies after a 1 min wait, during E3 (at Fileplanet)

I was hooked on EoD, but I dont know now. I think Im leaning back towards DC. I love this!

By the way: On the BF1942 main page, it says that the developers of the original game have announced an addon for Vietnam! Apparently EoD will have some competition from its own "parents" so to speak!

Aye, i read of that and it sounds neat. They are also making changes to the engine (thank god)

and the new DC is definately cool, despite the 4 fps it goes on my machine.

Yeah, DC runs at about half the speed of normal battlefield, and even worse if its a level with lots of planes and choppers.

Don't worry, I have a plan. I saw this in a movie about a bus that had to speed around the city, keeping it's speed over 50, and if it's speed dropped, it would explode! I think it was called, "The Bus That Couldn't Slow Down".

Ok, it is 5 days later from when this question was asked and I still havent gotten the MOD for the following reasons:
1.) My internet is being really gay lately and is going down at random times
2.) The dowload goes reeeaaaallly slow
3.) Sometimes I don't like leaving my computer on at night

AAAHHHGGG!!!!

OK! I finally got it. I was downloading it from one of the newer mirrors off of desertcombat.com and I was downloading at 150k/sec.

The only thing that I don't like about .38 is the voice thing wenever you capture or loose one of the bases. It kinda gets annoying. Otherwise...THE GAME IS GREAT!!!
