which folder are you putting the map files in?

They need to go into the maps folder in your FH mod folder.

Make sure you download EVERY single map + the 004 hotfix wich is released before the battle!

The 004 hotfix needs to be loaded last as it replaces some items in prior hotfixes.

Ah looks like you extracted to the wrong location.

Should be
C:\Program Files\EA GAMES\Battlefield 1942\Mods\FH\Archives\bf1942\levels

Yes you need all of those map files.

There is not a number 3 as that is for allied troops only.

So you need in your FH levels folder.

waw_13_salerno.rfa
waw_13_salerno_001.rfa
waw_13_salerno_002.rfa
waw_13_salerno_004.rfa

You'll need to download WinRar (http://www.rarlab.com/rar/wrar361.exe) and use that to extract the RAR files. Inside each RAR file is an RFA file, and the RFA file is what should belong in your maps folder.

A little background information: a RAR file is just like a zip file. It is simply a compressed folder that we can then password. The hotfixes are passworded because the Axis don't want the allies looking at their loadout and visa versa. Each side comes up with its own loadout to bring to the battle and we don't find out the opposite side's loadout until 10 minutes before the battle.
