Hey guys, been awhile since I posted and I'm wondering the exact procedure to DL 0.7, I'm currently DLing the first of the 3 sections of the FH 0.7 Mod, I have WinRAR, and when each Group of Files Downloads the automatic Installation thing should pop-up, right? Just wondering. Also, is that All I need to DownLoad, no mappacks or anything else right? If so, please post which ones. I'm sick of playing BF2, cant wait for FH2 though. Keep up the good work.
currently the install of FH0.7 goes like this:
- install BF1942 (skip if installed)
- install punkbuster (during install of bf1942?)
- update punkbuster manually if it fails automaticly: http://www.evenbalance.com/index.php?page=support-bf1942.php
- update 1.6.19 (skip if installed)
- patch 1.61b (skip if installed)
- download/installFH 0.7 (file1)
- download/install FH 0.7 (file2)
- download/install FH 0.7 (file3)
- download/install the FH mappack 6, it's somewhere in the archived news on the site (optional, but a lot of servers have it installed)
- have fun playing FH0.7 :P
"the automatic Installation thing"
I take it you mean the popup for the download? If not perhaps the instalation of the files?
if you have the 3 seperate files, by installing the first one you've started the installation of FH0.7 (don't remember if it looks like it crashed in the 0.7 install, the previous version did look like it had crashed). Anyway if it does look like it crashed, it's actually installing the game :P
look at you hdd light, if it's flickering a lot and you hear the hdd making noice. It's installing, it will automaticly ask you to continue with file2 when file1 is finished (ditto for file2 --> file3)
forum lag? o.o
Thanks for the help... Few questions though, What is Update 1.6.19, is it for FH, PB, or BF1942?
It's the 1.6.19 update for BF1942, sorry wasn't to clear in that list now that I read it back :D
The 1.61b is a small patch for 1.6.19 (it fixed something related to the scoreboard if I remember correctly) but is mandatory if you want to play online
May I suggest the FH Texture&Sound pack?
Look in the General Discussion stickeys.
Is it needed to play??? Other question, If i downloaded 1.61 before 1.6.19 will it work fine, or do i need to redownload 1.61, thanks again.
By just downloading files in another order doesn't do anything, it only matters if you start the file to initiate the installation ^_^ , I also don't think 1.61b can even be installed without installing 1.6.19 first
No, it isn't needed to play. Just adds tons of cool sounds and textures like swastikas and the such in order to create more historical realism.
Just wanted to say thanks, had a few problems with PunkBuster but just DownLoaded thier Automatic Updater thingy, so all should be good... Played some FH for awhile, it's awsome!!! See you on the BattleField!! BTW: My SN is Chappy
