I no this may sound dumb, but when I install the 3 .exe of FH (From the large 1 download) i go to the fold i have installed it to (defualt i think- i havnt changed the path) I believe its C:\Programme files\ea\battlefield1942. there is nothing on FH. only in the Mod folder were there is only a few objects, manual, icon ect. no actuall icon / shortcut to the game. In win RAR it says there is about 600 + mb for each file or somit like that, so im guessing its all there and in the .exes it says its adding the various stuff like maps n sounds ect. please help. thankyou

Ok - easy one:

The installer searches your registry for a BF42 installation. This one is needed and if you install BF1942 in the default directory this will be: C:\Programme files\ea\battlefield1942

BUT: It is important you have Battlefield 1942 installed. FH is not a stand alone game! All files will be installed to the mods/fh folder within your Battlefield folder. In the fh folder are all the rfa files included. Just use explorer and have a closer look.

To start Forgotten Hope:

1. Option Run Battlefield 1942 -> Go to Own Game -> Select FH 0.65

2. Option Make a shortcut directing to BF1942.exe in the following way: C:\Programme files\ea\battlefield1942\BF1942.exe" +game FH

3. Option Download something like ASE and connect to a server via it. BF1942 will determine it is an FH Server (if you picked an FH Server) and will load right map.

Anymore questions?
