Ok, i don't know if this IS a bug or just my copy...but the game inevitable quits on the following map after a while of play: In order of likelihood (Highest to lowest) Battle of the bulge Desert Rose Day of Zitadelle trois point and very rarely, Kasserine Pass The worst is BoB. you start fine, action get heated up then when all is nice and adrenaline rushing, it quits and gives an error i used to think it was my graphic card (Geforce 7600), then i got a laptop with a Geforce 6 something and it still exists on those map maybe, a Geforce issue? Any similar issues with anyone else, solutions, reasons?

:moved: from bugs to help/support.

sounds like a problem with your copy/installation to me. And even if it would have been a bug (pretty sure it isn't since these maps do run well for others) I would still move it for trying to keep the bug forum clean for FH2 bugs. =p

I have tried everything...ok first off, I get to see a great new game, i walk around, see the new stuff, im totally excited...i get into a vehicle and a few seconds later, the game freezes and im obligated to shut down the pc, since ctrl+alt+delete doesnt work, or i get a redirection to the desktop (when i tried it later) Firstly, i uninstalled forgotten hope, reinstalled it, same @%$* error. I was so pissed of i shut the computer down and went to sleep. When i woke up, i started pc, removed battlefield, and reinstalled it in a new directory (C:\Games\) then patched it, then installed Forgotten Hope again. I downloaded a map pack, itstalled that too, defragmentated C: station...i couldnt believe what happened, i started forgotten hope, played battle of britain, and no Game freeze after a few seconds i got in a vehicle...a few minutes later it did crash....:mad: I'm the guy that likes to help himself before asking stuff to other ppl...but now i'm really desperate and i really wanna play FH 0.7, so please help me (us) out. System specs:

Hewlett-Packard HP Pavilion Intel Pentium D CPU 2.66 GHz RAM 1,00 GB Nvidia GeForce 7300 LE videocard with latest driver. Ofcourse i have directx 9.0c installed.

@RmonSP Sounds like a hardware problem, the game usually wont run at all if it was software. Unless maybe its a sound card problem, unable to play a sound it crashes. Try changing some game settings, make sure you have EAX turned off in sound settings. Turn graphics down. Since you say you re-installed it correctly...bf42+patch+FH and you reinstalled drivers already.. Then all i can think of is a hardware conflict or problem.

thanks for your helpful comment ("raaaaaaare" isn't helpful :p) But now back to topic. What is EAX, as it might be a sound problem. I set the graphics a little back, and that was quite helpfull. I was playing the game for about 20 minutes...then again, it didnt CTD, but it just crashed again (you cant move, sound keeps repeating, etc.) Because the problem still occurs, i'd like to know more about that EAX and some more tips on the sound issue.

Thanks for your good help so far, if someone could help me out a little more, id greatly appreciate it.:bows:

EAX is 3 dimentional sound emulation. Its a sound setting, turn it off. If your sound card doesnt support it, then it can cause lag or even crashes. Hope that helps you :) edit: Sorry i was thinking BF2, BF1942 doesnt have EAX. Turn off hardware acceleration is what i meant :) also turn sound detail to low. and try lower Hz

I came with a solution. All the (appreceated) help eventually didnt help (I did everything i could, I even tried playing it with the most horrible grapghics and no sound, though still...same problem...BUT I found the solution...I was going to throw FH away but before that i checked the init.con file and compared t with the init.con in the original BF1942 map...Original:

game.CustomGameName BF1942 game.addModPath Mods/BF1942/ game.setCustomGameVersion 1.61 game.setCustomGameUrl "http://www.battlefield1942.com"

Game.setMenuMusicFilename "music/slaughter4.bik" Game.setLoadMusicFilename "music/vehicle4.bik" Game.setWinMusicFilename "music/vehicle3.bik" Game.setLoseMusicFilename "music/menu.bik" Game.setCampaignLoseMusicFilename "music/theme2.bik" Game.setDebriefingMusicFilename "music/briefing.bik"

FH mod:

game.setCustomGameName FH game.addModPath Mods/FH/ game.addModPath Mods/BF1942/ game.setCustomGameVersion 0.7 game.customGameFlushArchives 0 game.setCustomGameUrl "http://www.fhmod.org"

Game.setMenuMusicFilename "music/slaughter4.bik" Game.setLoadMusicFilename "music/vehicle4.bik" Game.setWinMusicFilename "music/vehicle3.bik" Game.setLoseMusicFilename "music/menu.bik" Game.setCampaignLoseMusicFilename "music/theme2.bik" Game.setDebriefingMusicFilename "music/briefing.bik"

I deleted the "set" in the first line, and saved it as init.con again. Guess what? The game ran perfectly, after i while i changed all settings back to highest as possible, also sound, and it still ran GREAT...

so maybe, just maybe this might help others (like the guy who started this thread)

PS If it's not possible that the above was the reason that the game worked, i also copied Forgotten Hope shortcut to the FH map...

PPS I'm very happy now :happyday: :lol::hump:

Still need help on mine. How possible is it that my copy has a fault with those maps. cuz everything else runs fine. And it doesn't just exist and give an error message on my desktop but my laptop also....And perhaps other Pcs if I tried them. Do I really have to download a fresh copy of FH?

Not sure if I'm in the right thread. I've been looking for the FH files for Battlecraft 42 and have had no luck. Can anyone point me in the right direction please? Thanx in advance
