Dread thinks I'm a special person
5th February 2004
I mean the "FH" folder inside the "Mods" folder. I downloaded FH 0.65 through Bittorrent. The size of my FH folder is only 1.76 Gb, slightly bigger than the size of the installer. The installer worked fine, but it installed the files suspiciously fast. With the version 0.6 it took ages to install the files. The size of 0.6 was 1.2 Gb and the size of the FH folder was 2.2 Gb, so I guess something is not right. I think it didn't install everything. All maps worked fine, but I saw for example that on desert maps the German soldiers didn't wear the mask that was supposed to be in 0.65. Is the folder really supposed to be that small, or do I have to download it again? :confused:
no I guess it's correct if all maps work
The folder is smaller now because the archives have been compressed. Saves disk space and decreases install time. The German masks on the desert maps are random. You don't always get one when you spawn.
Well Answer this. I downloaded The full install off of fileplanet. And im running out of room on a 14.5 gig partition. Only other thing in it is a fresh install of Bf1942 no other mods. When it finnaly quit trying to install due to not haveing enough room the FH folder was 12.2 gb. Anybody know what is causing that?
I too have this problem from a FP download.
Forgotten_Hope_V0-65_Install_1_of_3.exe installation has bee going for 3HRS! and it's only sitting at 36%. C:\Program Files\EA GAMES\Battlefield 1942\Mods\FH\Archives\sound.$$A is up to 46GB and counting!! Does the installer have a memory leak? I have an above average computer, 2g memory and tons of free disk space. It's a fresh XP installation, w/SP2 (working great). I've tried deleting FH directory, made sure temp directories were empty, defraged pagefile and it repeatedly does the same thing. I really don't care to d/l from another location if it's not the problem. Please help this mod LQQks great and I wanna play :) Cheers
Also forgot to say just before it hangs starts extracting sound.rfa then a second FH install window appears in task manager. and stops responding. But it still keeps extracting sound.$xx about 1mb a minute. I've just tried stoping explorer, a/v and spybot's teatimer then running installation and I made it to sound.$$B and it's currently sitting at 36% and 16GB.
