The moddb links are provided by Eye on the moddb page of FHSW here. 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



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://u.to/6JvnEA

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:
https://u.to/l8TaCA OR https://u.to/7ZvnEA

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://u.to/7pvnEA
2. https://u.to/7JvnEA
3. https://u.to/6pvnEA

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://u.to/5JvnEA OR https://u.to/lcTaCA

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: https://u.to/45vnEA OR https://u.to/8TNBDw

Part 2: https://u.to/5pvnEA OR https://u.to/8DNBDw

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://u.to/4pvnEA OR https://u.to/LkDgDw

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:

6.b Manual (zipped) version:


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: https://u.to/VnIqAg

7.b: If you have ORIGIN version of BF1942: https://u.to/65vnEA

7.c: If you have CD version of BF1942: https://u.to/4ZvnEA

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.

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.

Real quick question, trying to keep up to date with all of these things even if I still rarely get to play. In the installer, is that BF1942 1.61 just the patch or is it the entire base game?

Thanks much, hope all of y'all are doing well!

Long time no see!
It is the entire base game with the 1.6 patch and the incremental 1.61 patch + widescreen fix. Server browser should also be fixed. And the 4 GB patch is apllied upon the BF1942.exe as well. It's an all in one package as a basis for all mod installations.

@ Xenanab,

Indeed, glad to hear from you! Thanks for the response, I'm trying to get not only myself updated but some new members to the community as well who were interested in joining the scene, so that is great!
