I've made a little VBScript which extends your Browser (TS3 etc.) with the ability to start BF1942 and connect to a server directly from a hyperlink. It works with the following URL format definition:bf1942://ip:port/mod
I have renamed the file to .txt, so it is downloadable. It's plain text and you find installation instructions inside. VBScript files can be run natively under Windows XP or higher - no other software required.
You can "save the choice" when your browser asks you for if it should open with an external program, since the script will always ask you again if you really wanna join.
Here's a link to our clan's server which should work right away if installed correctly: bf1942://126.96.36.199:14567/dc_final
It has been tested on XP only - the necessary registry entries might differ on Vista or 7. I will extend the script if somebody reports that it doesnt work for Vista/7.
This is "open source" (obviously) and may be used and extended without limitations. No warranties for damage that ... bla bla you know already, read the code if you dont trust it ^^
