Ok just to show that I really do love this mod...
Boy have I got something for you. I just did a sound revision addon for forgotten hope! It's just a single .rfa file that you drop into your FH folder, totally punkbuster compatible. It will let you play normal FH on any server with new sounds. No problems whatsoever. Here's the file, and I'll paste the readme below: ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Tanelorn Sound revision addon for Forgotten Hope 0.61 (16 Mar 2004) This addon is an attempt to add a bit more realism to the game by replacing some obviously synthesized sounds with ones that come closer to real life. The addon mostly replaces handweapons and especially machineguns. Few if any large weapons have been touched. Only sounds which sounded far from realistic were adjusted. Only the 44khz and 22khz sounds have been touched. You will not experience any changes in 11khz mode. Unfortunately, this is merely a sound replacement. THe actual handling and soundscripting of the weapons have not been changed. Because of this, many of the weapons are still not sounding as good as they could. Many have priority problems causing them to go silent, and others have poor looping parameters. Many are not optimized for range / priority. I have no control over this, and have chosen sounds that work as good as can be expected for the given soundscripts. Note that this is a simple file addition, it does not overwrite any FH files and is completely compatible with punkbuster. I have sucessfully used it in multiple popular FH servers for a few weeks. *** INSTALLATION *** You will see one file within this zip file, called sound_001.rfa. This file goes into your Mods directory. The following files are included in this zip (with pathnames) /mods/FH/archives/sound_001.rfa Again, this is not a mod or a minimod. Once you drop this file in, you will immediately experience the changes in your next game. No further effort is required. *** end installation *** Revision history >>> version 0.5 The following sounds have been revised: - .30cal coaxial - .50cal browning - BAR 1918 - Bren - MG34, all versions - MG42, all versions - MP18 (japanese sub-gun) - MP40 - PPSH - SG44 - Thompson - DPMG including handweapon, pin-mounted, and coaxial This is probably a one-shot addon, with no planned future revisions.

Sweet, i ll give it a try. I'm glad you finally started doin something useful with your time instead of developing some desert game thingie. ;)
wont this make it unplayable on pure servers?
I'll be damned.......it actually works and sounds good, dependend on individual taste that is.....
Dispite the bashing like comments in the other threat, wich i did not like, thnx Tanelorn ;)
This is actually a pretty nice addition, I didn't encounter any PB issues. Btw. all mods are unpure.
Can I hear any samples at all?
Just throw that RFA file in battlefield1942/mods/FH/Archives
You can delete it just as fast, it doesn't overwrite anything....
Pretty good. The 50 and 30 cals are especially nice.
Mmm, I just tested the thompson and the Bren, the thompson sounds like your firing it in a big empty room and the bren sounds a little soft to me. The other changed weapons are great.
