Historical Texture and Sound Pack for FH 0.7 Released!
That's right folks, after months of hard work by all involved it's finally here: the joint GeRmAn~BRATWURST/Mr_Cheese (and associates) sound and texture pack.

The pack adds all new historically accurate sounds and textures to the Forgotten Hope 0.7. The pack itself contains v.3 of Mr_Cheese's Texture Pack and v.1.4 of GeRmAn~Bratwurst's Sound Pack. It has been thoroughly tested online and it does not affect online play or cause problems with PunkBuster. Thanks to Purity the pack includes an Activator which can be used to enable and disable both the sound and texture packs at the click of a button.

*A few people asked me whether the sound/texture pack may have caused the problems with last week's battle map (Midway). The answer is no. There is no possible way it could have crashed the server. Bratwurst and I checked the files and even if someone was having problems there is no way a client-side mini-mod could affect and crash a server.*

Note - uncheck the box saying "launch activator" that appears when instalation is complete. For an unknown reason it causes problems

Download links (thanks to Purity for the installer):

- PC (.exe installer) version, 133MB click on the file name next to "Tiedoston nimi"
(a big thankyou to Battlefield.fi for being the first to host the file)
- PC mirror 2 (fast)
- PC mirror 3 (fast)
- PC mirror 4 (thanks TechX!)
- PC mirror 5 (BFE - thanks Trexer!)
- Fixed PC version (no Activator)
(This doesn't run the activator at the end and doesn't give you the option to either.)
- Mac (.rar) version

Sound Pack patch
Bratwurst has released a patch for the sound pack. It fixes the P-38 sound and a number of minor glitches.

Download here
BFE mirror (thanks Trexer)
