This is not true, Battlefield 1942 / Vietnam and 2 can play their imernoch online. It works best for BF 1942, because there it was solved best.

"Battlefield 1942" again to play online, you have to overwrite the old BF1942.exe in the "origin games" folder, otherwise you get no server more in your GameSpy:


The new BF1942.exe for Origin User:
bf1942.exe Origin: http://team-simple.org/download/bf1942-v1.61-origin-patched.zip


CD Retail User bf1942.exe: http://team-simple.org/download/bf1942-v1.61-retail-patched.zip
