Newbie question, I guess. I have no idea how to get the mod to appear in any of my options. I have installed both the 0.6 packs as well as the .6 to .61 upgrade. It's in there, taking up lots of space, but there's nothing in any of my menus to indicate there's ANY mods at all... I can't find any options. Everyone else seems to know how to make BF1942 mods work but me. I had heard there was a single player option for FH. I can't even find it when trying to create a game.... PLEASE HELP! (god, it sucks being a newbie...):confused:

Unfortunately, it's not there. There's just the normal options. Do I need to put the mods folder somewhere specific?

if you don't have a costum game tab in your main menu this probably means you do not have bf1942 v1.45 or higher you schould have V1.6 http://www.eagames.com/official/battlefield/1942/us/gamedemo.jsp?state=010010 Anyhoo I cant really run FH either I can start a lan game but if I try and join an internet server I have a CTD problem thingy, right after or during the loading of the map, I tried reinstalling but it didn't work I don't really know the nature of the problem or what I'm doing wrong because FH is the only mod that doesn't work, at least anymore previous versions did work. Anyhoo does anyone know what might be wrong? oh and another thing does anyone know the command line for fh so you can make a shortcut that starts FH instead of regular bf.

To skip the intro movie and go straight to the menu use "+restart 1" Ex. ...\BF1942\BF1942.exe +restart 1

To start a BF1942 modification use "+game 'name'". Ex. ...\BF1942\BF1942.exe +restart 1 +game desertcombat. The mod name can be found in the first line of the game's "ini.con" file (game.setCustomGameName DesertCombat). The path for DC would be...\BF1942\Mods\DesertCombat\ini.con

To automatically join a server just use " +joinServer x.x.x.x:port" (case sensitive) Ex...\BF1942.exe +restart 1 +game desertcombat +joinServer x.x.x.x:14567 Don't worry about putting in the +game cmd when joining a desert combat server, the game automatically detects the mod.

Of course, when I installed the 1.6 patch I started getting the joyous black - ding - crash - desktop error. I just updated all my drivers, going to uninstall / reinstall when I get home after setting refresh down to 60. I had a custom game menu, but had two options only.
