Quick question.
 was trying to save space on disk and I found that the level folder or FH vanilla is like 10G, and since I only play FHSW I was wondering if something could go wrong by deleting all the files of maps of FH vanilla.

Thanks in advice.

Things would go horribly wrong if you delete the folder since FHSW is a mod of FH and most FHSW map files are based on the respective FH content. It is strongly recommended to not manipulate any original FH data.

I had same doubt time ago... and deleting some ( apparently ) useless stuff of FH(SW) was a bad bad ban... ops, bad idea. I had to delete my " ultramegaporn " folder, I was sad but with a clean HD... and more free space  angel  . Then my old laptop esploded and I lost all. The worst thing is that I deleted my "ultramegaporn" folder just a week before the esplosion.  manythought

My FH levels folder takes less than 2GB and it only has the maps which are specified as required for running FHSW. Those are the maps from FH 0.7 and Fan Mappack 6. Since your folder is larger, you must have other custom FH maps there, which are not required for FHSW. You probably should delete or move these maps because some such maps are known to cause FHSW to crash on some maps. I've explained this before:

I think some of you may have some custom maps for FH (such as from PFC mappacks or Fan Mappacks other than FH Fan Mappack 6) which are known to cause crashes, specifically on maps such as Remagen and Midway-1942 and maybe others. We haven't determined exactly which maps cause the crashes, but what fixes the problem is removing all map files from Battlefield 1942\Mods\FH\Archives\bf1942\levels that aren't from FH 0.7 or Fan Mappack 6. Usually, if you order the files by date modified you'll see that the FH 0.7 map files are dated 2005, Fan Mappack 6 map files are dated May 2006 and all map files dated after 2006 are probably custom  maps which you can remove. If you are not sure, or the "date modified" is not right, you can remove the whole folder and reinstall just FH 0.7 and Fan Mappack 6. If you want to still be able to play those other FH maps too, have a copy of the entire Battlefield 1942 directory with all the custom FH maps in, and start FH from there.

I wasn't talking about the Folder but the files in it Xena, and thanks Air Troll for understood and gave the information.

Sadly, when I was about to delete files I found that I had also less than 2GB in it and the 10GB was of the whole BF1942 folder, Im an idiot lol, sorry for wasting your time guys  tongue
