    Everything you need to play FHSW!

    Ok, now that we have that down, continue with the rest of the guide.

    For the Complete FHSW experience:
    -Go to SITUATION 1 if you DO NOT have any previous FHSW versions, or just don't want to go through all that patch business
    -Go to SITUATION 2 if you already have .25 installed and do not want to download the very large Full Client Install of FHSW .261

    SITUATION 1:
    SITUATION 1: You do NOT have any previous FHSW versions, or just don't want to go through all that patch business.

    Forgotten Hope Secret Weapons .261 Full Install CLIENT:
    ftp://download.vol.to/bf1942/mod/For...ClientFull.zip
    http://fhjapan.mydns.jp/FHSW0261ClientFull.zip
    http://akisaba.dyndns.org/bf1942mod/...ClientFull.zip

    I have not tried this out yet, but I am pretty positive is all you do is, extract the file, take the 'FHSW' folder and move it into your C:\Program Files\EA GAMES\Battlefield 1942\Mods folder. Allow it to overwrite.

    MAKE SURE: Delete all previous FHSW versions from your C:\Program Files\EA GAMES\Battlefield 1942\Mods folder!



    SITUATION 2:
    SITUATION 2: You already have FHSW .25 Installed and do not want to download the very large FHSW .261 Full Client Install

    Download FHSW .25 to .26 Patch
    ftp://download.vol.to/bf1942/mod/For...SW026Patch.zip
    http://akisaba.dyndns.org/bf1942mod/FHSW026Patch.zip
    FHSW ver0.25 to 0.26 Patch - FileFront.com

    Extract the file, take the 'FHSW' folder from the 'FHSW026Patch' folder and move it into your C:\Program Files\EA GAMES\Battlefield 1942\Mods folder. Allow it to overwrite.

    After upgrading FHSW to .26, download the FHSW .26 to .261 Patch
    ftp://download.vol.to/bf1942/mod/For...lientPatch.zip
    http://fhjapan.mydns.jp/FHSW0261ClientPatch.zip
    http://akisaba.dyndns.org/bf1942mod/...lientPatch.zip
    FHSW ver0.261 Client Patch - FileFront.com

    Extract the file, take the 'FHSW' folder from the 'FHSW0261ClientPatch' folder and move it into your C:\Program Files\EA GAMES\Battlefield 1942\Mods folder. Allow it to overwrite.

    After allowing the .261 patch to overwrite, do this:
    -Right click the C:\Program Files\EA GAMES\Battlefield 1942\Mods\FHSW\Archives\bf1942\levels folder, and select properties. You should see that it has 125 files inside.
    -Now, delete the following files manually
    Adak_Island_001.rfa
    Battle_of_Bougainville_001.rfa
    Battle_of_Off_Malay_001.rfa
    Battle_Of_Valirisk-1943_001.rfa
    Bombing_The_Reich-1945_001.rfa
    FH_Air_001.rfa
    FH_Land_001.rfa
    fht_hong_kong-1941_001.rfa
    In_The_Hell_Of_Bocage-1944_001.rfa
    Invasion_Of_The_Philippines_001.rfa
    Iwo_Jima_001.rfa
    Iwo_Jima_day1_001.rfa
    Kiew_001.rfa
    Operation_A_001.rfa
    Operation_Forager_001.rfa
    Operation_Kikusui_day2_001.rfa
    Operation_Lilliput_001.rfa
    Raseiniai_001.rfa
    Stalingrad_RedSquare_001.rfa
    Stashuv_Area_001.rfa
    Tulagi_Island_001.rfa
    Tunis-1943_001.rfa
    -After deleting these, go right click your C:\Program Files\EA GAMES\Battlefield 1942\Mods\FHSW\Archives\bf1942\levels folder again, and select properties. You will now have 103 files.

    NEW VERSION!!!!

    OPTIONAL BUT HIGHLY RECOMMENDED FHSW Sound and Texture Pack:
    If you thought the FHSW sounds were great, there is also a Sound and Texture (mostly sounds) pack too. Take note though, the .261 version of this makes the Bren sound worse than usual (better than the .25 version though). Everything else? Gristly, realistic, scary, totally amazing, adds a whole new level to the FHSW experience, absolutely beautiful, a masterpiece. This .261 version is a FULL INSTALL, there is not a patch I believe.

    Download FHSW .261 Sound and Texture pack Full Client Install:
    http://www.fhjapan.mydns.jp/5264.rar
    http://files.filefront.com/Sound%26T.../fileinfo.html

    MAKE SURE YOU DELETE THE OLD 'STFHSW' FOLDER FROM YOUR C:\Program Files\EA GAMES\Battlefield 1942\Mods FOLDER BEFORE PROCEEDING


    After making sure you deleted the old 'STFHSW' folder, extract the new file you downloaded, move the 'FHSW' and 'STFHSW' folders located inside the 'S&T0.261' folder to your C:\Program Files\EA GAMES\Battlefield 1942\Mods folder. Allow it overwrite.
    Much <3 to PurityNN for this link!

    Map Edit Tool Pack for FHSW Mappers/Modders:
    The FHSW Map Edit Tool Pack has been released! Download here:
    http://www.fhjapan.mydns.jp/FHSWmapeditpack.rar

    Install instructions? Unfortunately, I do not know because I don't map or mod =p.
    More <3 to PurityNN for this link!
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    I truly hope this helps for you guys

    If you have ANY questions at all, post!

    Also, I am looking for links to the MAC versions and install instructions of these files!!!


    PS: BIG props to PurityNN for keeping us updated about FHSW, and Lightning for editing my post

    If you run into issues simply delete you FHSW folder and download the FHSW .0261 Full Install.

    It seems as though the steps to upgrade to FHSW 0.261 is not straight forward. I'd suggest downloading the full install.

    I had close to 300kb's when I downloaded it. I would recommend getting the full install.
