The moddb links are provided by the Eye on the moddb page of the FHSW. I will re-use them and put everything in chronological order.

Please make sure you run all installers AS ADMIN.


All in one installer (by RADIOSMERSH):

Installer contains:
1.) BF1942 1.61 + widescreen fix with 4GB patch applied
2.) FH 0.7 + FanMappack #6
3.) FHSW 0.61 + FHSW-Europe Mapppack #1

http://fhsw-europ.ucoz.de/forum/34-909-1

----------------------------------------------------

Guide for manuel installation
(if you have installed bf1942 and FH already you have to start from step 4.)

1. Base game: BF1942

This setup file was created and provided by tuia and s[sk]. I do not own it. It has been modified to include widescreen support and gamespy fix. It does not include punkbuster (PB) as the official support for it ended long time ago. Link to download: https://1drv.ms/u/s!AuYO9LTRCu_3gS2wMK-VrTT5Nt1E

After installing the game, please stop and run it without any mods. Check your version at the bottom right hand corner of the screen.

If you install ORIGIN version of the game, your version should show 1.612. If that is the case, then it is safe to proceed to step 2.
If you install CD version of the game, it is possible your version will show 1.6. If that is the case, you need the following patches:
- To be supplied
- To be supplied


2. Forgotten Hope 0.7 (FH)
The installation file depends, whether you have installed ORIGIN or CD version of the BF1942.

2.a: ORIGIN Version
You need to install FH 0.7 from the following installer:
http://www.moddb.com/mods....-hope-1 OR https://drive.google.com/open?id=1bz1i19ZF7UNF1o0hNWvvv-sjXmdZYoMw


2.b: CD Version
You need to install FH 0.7 by the following installers. They have to be installed in chronological order:
1. https://1drv.ms/u/s!AuYO9LTRCu_3gSpQ7tgN-5IleDxF
2. https://1drv.ms/u/s!AuYO9LTRCu_3gSg4fkKWwaZSpu6N
3. https://1drv.ms/u/s!AuYO9LTRCu_3gSXKtqGTfm3ZnM6r

After installing the FH for your version of the game (Origin or CD), proceed to the installation of FH Fan Mappack 6, below.


3. Forgotten Hope Fan Mappack 6
This is compulsory mappack for the proper functioning of FHSW. Please, get it from here:
https://1drv.ms/u/s!AuYO9LTRCu_3gSZAzqHwq4hsgRWA OR http://www.moddb.com/mods....ppack-6

After installing the fan mappack, please run your FH installation, ideally from the icon placed on your desktop. You should see a movie playing in the background, NOT a gray screen. If everything seems alright, proceed to step 4.


----------------------------------------------------
4. Forgotten Hope Secret Weapons 0.6 (FHSW0.6)

The FHSW installation is made of 2 parts / exe files:
Part 1: http://www.moddb.com/mods....part-12 OR https://drive.google.com/file....sharing

Part 2: http://www.moddb.com/mods....part-22 OR https://drive.google.com/file....sharing

It should not matter from where you download the both parts, but to "play it safe" you can try to download them from the same location. They have to be installed in chronological order, part 1 first, part 2 second.
After installing FHSW 0.6, run the FHSW installation, ideally from the icon on the desktop. You should, again, see a movie playing on the background.


5. FHSW Patch 0.61
This is compulsory patch for the FHSW:
https://1drv.ms/u/s!AuYO9LTRCu_3gS-MN_dK4dg17yH4 OR https://drive.google.com/file/d/0ByT8voltDla9aGlJNzY5Z0N5WHc/view


6. [FHSW]Europe Mappack 1+2:
In order to be able to play all maps played on the server you need this mappack.
6.a Installer version:
https://onedrive.live.com/?authke....=locate
or
https://drive.google.com/uc?id=1....ownload

6.b Manual (zipped) version:
https://onedrive.live.com/?authke....=locate

or
https://drive.google.com/uc?id=1....ownload

7. In case of crashes, slow loading, random errors, etc.
try the "4 GB Patch" (it does not have 4 GB in size, it allows your BF1942 process to use 4GB of RAM on older systems instead of just 2 GB):
7.a: to install it follow instructions on this page: http://www.ntcore.com/4gb_patch.php

7.b: If you have ORIGIN version of BF1942: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1ULZzCASwJ_6PZOERvdnuJPTgD-kdob45

7.c: If you have CD version of BF1942: https://drive.google.com/file....sharing


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
8. Additional tweaks to game (not required): Sound and Textures pack "FHSWS&T Pack" ("STFHSW")

This pack adds better sounds and historical textures to your game.
Please notice: this pack can cause the game to crash during on loading screen for certain maps. Currently, the only solution is to try joining the game until the game starts to work.


Installation
8.a) Download the latest S&T Pack here: http://fhsw-europ.ucoz.de/forum/34-832-1

8.b) Unzip the S&T Pack using WinRAR, 7zip or other archive unzipping software - you should see 2 folders: STFHSW & FHSW.

8.c) If you have older version of STFHSW pack installed, please find your "BF1942/Mods" folder and delete "STFHSW" directory if it is already there. The folder's location depends on the installed version of the game (CD or Origin). For the CD version it can be: "C:\Program Files (x86)\EA GAMES\Battlefield1942\Mods". The drive letter "C" could be different depending on your system.

8.d) Please backup FHSW folder that is in "BF1942/Mods" (i.e. copy the FHSW folder to a safe place).

8.e) Move the FHSW and STFHSW folders, which you extracted from archive in step 8.b, to the "Mods" folder you localized in step 8.a. Once the overwrite prompt appears, please click "Yes".

8.f) Go to your FHSW mod folder "../Battlefield 1942/Mods/FHSW/" and find "init.con". Back it up (i.e. copy it to a safe place).

8.g) Go to FHSW folder inside the STFHSW folder "../Battlefield 1942/Mods/STFHSW/FHSW/" and find "init.con" file. Copy it and place it in "../Battlefield 1942/Mods/FHSW/", overwriting the old "init.con" file there.

I actually do not know sad . I did not try to run it as I saw many people having trouble with it. I personally made a decision in "fully working with a bit worse graphics and sounds" vs "not so playable with beautiful graphics". Probably Radio, Xeni or anyone who has it installed could add a bit about how to install/add random textures and sounds.

@ Bubu
Thank you very much for this detailed instruction. If new players have problems we can link them to this thread smile

You could also add this thing here that I translated from Stefan: FHSW Crash and performance solutions
This thread is for troubleshooting IF there are problems. There is no need to apply these kind of changes if everything runs fine though!

@ BornDarkness
Please take a look into this thread here by Radio: S&T Pack for FHSW 0.61
There is a download for the normal pack and Radio's additional pack with installation instructions. If you need help you can ask there; it's very simple smile

Xenanab, thanks for the answer, I've done this before but I did not understand the installation guide of the textures and sounds from there, this is very confusing for me. I have no idea how to do this correctly.

Origin version should be not recommended for FHSW, many more problems with game stability, players reported

Best Bf1942 version for FHSW:

I believe you can't edit old posts unless you are in the "Admins" group. Marduk, can you add link to my installer, please?

+ Could you Marduk add a note to Origin BF1942 version that it is not recommended and it is recommended to install and follow the CD version/path of the guide.

+ Add point 8.:

Quote
8. Additional tweaks to game: Installation of Sound and Textures pack "FHSWS&T Pack" or short abbreviation "STFHSW"
-
This pack is NOTnecessary to be able to play but it adds better
sounds and historical textures to your game.
- The installation is a bit tough
- This pack can cause the game to crash during on loading screen for certain maps. Currently, the only solution is to try joining the game until the game starts to work.

Installation
8.a) Download the latest S&T Pack here. (please Radio, could you send me up to date link :| I lost it)

8.b) Unzip the S&T Pack using WinRAR, 7zip or other archive unzipping software - you should see 2 folders: STFHSW & FHSW.

8.c) If you have older version of STFHSW pack installed, please find your "BF1942/Mods" folder and delete "STFHSW" directory if it is already there.
The folder's location depends on the installed version of the game (CD or Origin).
For the CD version it can be: "C:\Program Files (x86)\EA GAMES\Battlefield 1942\Mods". The drive letter "C" could be different depending on your system.

8.d) Please backup FHSW folder that is in "BF1942/Mods" (i.e. copy the FHSW folder to a safe place).

8.e) Move the FHSW and STFHSW folders, which you extracted from archive in step 8.b, to the "Mods" folder you localized in step 8.a. Once the overwrite prompt appears, please click "Yes".

Radio, could you check these before Marduk posts this? Steps 8e-g are really confusing, I tried my best to be clear about them confused

a question about S & T Pack for FHSW 0.61, I would like to know if the procedure I followed is correct.

first I got the two folder fhsw and STFHSW, I put it in the mods folder of fhsw soon after this I replace the old "init.con" file with the new one.

it's correct what I did, is it just this is it works?

and what do I do with S & T Addition.zip, do I put it in the mods folder or STFHSW?
