Hi and welcome to the forums :cya: Well if you want a shortcut you can create your own like I did. Just follow these steps: Make a copy of BF1942's shortcut and rename it to Forgotten Hope then click over with with right mouse button and select Properties. In Properties you should edit the line Destiny "C:\Programas\EA GAMES\Battlefield 1942\BF1942.exe" to "C:\Programas\EA GAMES\Battlefield 1942\BF1942.exe" +game fh And voila you've just created a FH shortcut :) . If you want it to have an icon related to FH here I'll share mine: Copy this image and paste it wherever you want. Be sure to change the type of the file from fh.jpg to fh.ico for it to work as an icon! To change icon just select properties on your forgotten hope shortcut and click Change Icon... and browse the fh.ico file. Hope that helps
yeah thanks alot ill do that

If your idea is just to get FH started easier, you could also use The All Seeing Eye, which allows you to choose from a list of servers and join the server you want directly from that list. :)
No I don't know who did.

Also to the end of the Target line in Properties add this in: +restart 1
This will cause it to skip all the intro movie crap so you can get strait to the game.
I don't have the +restart 1 and Forgotten Hope doesn't play any intro movie whatsoever. I think the devs simply removed it from the mod itself unlike some other mods.
yeah i finally got around to trying it but cant get the line destiny right it says its not valid. is that line destiny the exact one i need to change it to? thx
I art god.

I just renamed the movies folder to "movies1". No more time consuming intros for me :D
carbonzxyeah i finally got around to trying it but cant get the line destiny right it says its not valid. is that line destiny the exact one i need to change it to? thx
No, it's not the exact line destiny. The line destiny I showed you is my line destiny (in my computer). It depends where your BF1942 game is installed. Is the drive C: D: or E:? Which folders? Games? Program Files? etc. In most Windows English version computers the line destiny is usually: "C:\Program Files\EA GAMES\Battlefield 1942\BF1942.exe" edit it to: "C:\Program Files\EA GAMES\Battlefield 1942\BF1942.exe" +game fh If the game is installed in D and not C it would just be: "D:\Program Files\EA GAMES\Battlefield 1942\BF1942.exe" +game fh Sorry for posting my line destiny. I forgot to change it to English Version. You see, Programas is Programs in Portuguese but still in the English version it's named differently and it is Program Files.
thank you, it works!!! i hate to ask but can you just post the icon that you use one more time it kinda disapeared.
