OK, I've been playing this game for a little bit to get the hang of it. Not the most realistic game. You have to look at TAcops for those, but kind of like Doom plus a little realism. Here's a good list of hints that I've found:
- Battlefield 1942 Hints. The basic hints. Also has many of the hints on the official EA page
- Evil Empire Blog. A highly rated blog about gaming. With great entires on hints
- Battlefield Central. An of course there is an entire site devote to just Battlefield 1942. Wow.
- Top 100. And a server that does nothing but keep track of the top 100 related sites
- Desert Combat. A mod to Battlefield 1942 that updates you to modern times. Drive an M1A2 Abrahms tank. cool.
- Conflict in Somalia. Another supposedly realistic mod. Sounds cool to try.
- Mod Database. In fact, there is actually a web site with nothing but mods on it. Amazing
