I found out that installing FHSW is full of tricky moments and pathways that could lead to errors, crash to desktops, mismatched versions, etc. Therefore I would like to present a full guide how to install FHSW. Eye tried on the ModDB page for FHSW, but some of the steps might be misleading. Moreover, the FHSW mappack 1 is missing there.

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, feel free to comment if I miss anything, I will try to keep this as up to date as possible.

Please, also make sure you run all installers AS ADMIN.


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:
- https://1drv.ms/u/s!AuYO9LTRCu_3gSpQ7tgN-5IleDxF
- https://1drv.ms/u/s!AuYO9LTRCu_3gSg4fkKWwaZSpu6N
- 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 the FHSW.
Please, get it from here:
- https://1drv.ms/u/s!AuYO9LTRCu_3gSZAzqHwq4hsgRWA
OR here:
- 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 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 Community Mappack 1:

In order to be able to play certain maps played on the server (Bastogne, Eagles Nest 1945, Fall Gelb, Golf Hotel, Ocean town, Op. Kikusui Day 2, Attack on Carentan, Zveroboy), you need this mappack.
6.a Installer version:
- https://1drv.ms/u/s!AuYO9LTRCu_3gSnDeQ7Q3f8vyuq9
OR
- https://onedrive.live.com/?authke....=locate

6.b Manual (zipped) version:
- https://1drv.ms/u/s!AuYO9LTRCu_3gS7NsjimV7FrV9cz
OR
- https://onedrive.live.com/?authke....=locate

7. In case of crashes, slow loading, random errors, etc. etc.
Try the following:
7.a: Get patch called "4GB patch" and follow instructions on the 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

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:
