OMGOMGOMG like i siad many times i'ev tried 14 times to DL fh.65 and wen it was finally successful. i extracted it with WinRAR 3.40 (the latest verison). I install it and it finishes. everything seems fine. til i try to connec to the BFE server which was currently running Bocage The loading to server screen starts, then it crashes to desktop (im using BFStart as an server browser). so i try again and same thing so i decide that maybe something messed up during installtion so i delete the FH folder from the directory and try to reinstall it. it successfully installs it. so i start it up in bf42 and use the ingame browser. i find a server and i join. it says Map not found so i pull all my hair out and decide to look in the Fh map directory. it has only these maps installed: Adak Island Alpenfestung Arnhem -1944 Battle of Britian BATTLE OF FOY so i KNOW that during installyion it probably didnt install it! so i look for a server tats playingone of those maps to see if thats true. i find a map play BATTLE OF FOY and i load onto it successfully and play on it for a while. i also notice a few textures are missing like the blood squirt and helmet skin plz dont tell me to DL it again and try to install that file, b/c likie i said i DLed @ least 14 files and each took bout 2hrs just to DL (PLUS waitng in line for some). i dont feel like DL it again btw, before i installed fh .65 i had deleted the old Fh folder in the FH direcory and i THINK i installed them in correctly. in WinRAR (3.40) i clicked on the file named Forgotten_Hope_V0-65_Install_1_of_3.exe* first and it successfully extracted it and then AUTOMATICLLY went to the 2nd file then the 3rd. was it suppose to do that? is that the source to this damn problem? PLZ REPLY! THX in advance

Sometimes the install files abort with a CRC error and they dont make much noise about it so you might think everything was alright. After each install file run check what its saying, if theres something about a CRC error rerun it until it completes properly.
no error messages appered wen it was extracting it. so i dunno
thx for ur help. i found out the problem anyways and fixed it
