***BATTLEFIELD 1942 AI ENHANCEMENT MOD by GRENADEMAN***

Creator: Grenademan
Version: v1.0
Game: Battlefield 1942
Description:

This AI enhancement mod (AIE) gives your BF1942 bots a new edge in their war against and for humanity.
They have been given all new abilities, such as being able to use pistols, knives, call for artillery...you name it, they can do it.
Along with that, a large number of changes to other game codes have been made, ranging from kit modifications to vehicle enhancements.
This brings the player down to the bot's level, allowing you to fight bots with things that bots use.

*****WARNING******

- THIS IS STRICTLY A SINGLE PLAYER MOD ONLY. ANY ATTEMPT TO PLAY MULTIPLAYER WITH THIS MOD ACTIVE
WILL PROBABLY RESULT IN SOME WIERD EVENTS. IF YOU WANT TO PLAY MULTIPLAYER AND THIS SINGLE PLAYER MOD,
THEN YOU'LL JUST HAVE TO SWITCH THE FILES AROUND AT YOUR LEISURE. IF YOU WANT TO PLAY A COOP GAME
WITH SOME MATES, MAKE SURE THAT THEY TOO HAVE THIS MOD. OTHERWISE, THIS IS RESTRICTED TO SINGLE PLAYER AND
SOLO COOP PLAY. AND YES, I HAVE CAPS LOCK ON ON PURPOSE.

- THIS MOD CONFLICTS WITH OTHER MODS. IF YOU HAVE ANY ACTIVE MODS IN BATTLEFIELD VIETNAM,
PLEASE TEMPORARILY REMOVE THEM AND PLACE THIS MOD INTO ITS RESPECTIVE DIRECTORIES.

Issues:
- Bots are still having minor problems with the binoculars. They will pull them out and look in the opposite direction of a target,
look at the target but not call for artillery, or they WILL call for artillery but will do it repeatedly. But usually most of the time they do request artillery support.
- When bots DO call for artillery, you won't hear radio messages. This is DICE's fault, its impossible for bots to use radio commands for BF42 or BFV.
- Renamed items will only appear in English versions of the game.

LEGAL:
Please refrain from editing my files and going and throwing them into a mod of your own, then pass them off as your own
creation. I put my bloody heart and soul into this so I deserve some respect at least!!
If you find that there is something that you are just ITCHING to change, then send me an e-mail
letting me know what you wanna change and I'll give you your answer.
