1) Download FH 0.65 - get it from a mirror or via Bittorrent (bittorrent version) - you can find a list of mirrors on our site and in this forum - to download the bittorrent version you need a torrent program 2) DELETE any previous Version you may have on your Pc - go into your Bf Root directory, -> Mods Here you will find a folder called "FH". Delete it. - Also delete FHX if you have installed it (a FHX folder in the "Mods" directory - do NOT move your previous install around or rename it, just delete everything related to FH in this folder. 3) Install 0.65 (Bittorrent) - First you have to extract 0.65 with winrar - to be able to extract 0.65.rar you will have to get the password - The password is: -=@visit-www.fhmod.org@=- - After extracting, just execute the installation file and follow the guidelines. 4) Install 0.65 (mirror - standard release) - Install 0.65 in the right order by clicking on the installation files: a) Forgotten_Hope_V0-65_Install_1_of_3.exe b) Forgotten_Hope_V0-65_Install_2_of_3.exe c) Forgotten_Hope_V0-65_Install_3_of_3.exe -Let the first installation finish (1of3) and only then go on with the next installation (2of3) 5) Installation Problems - If the Installation seems to have stopped at a certain percentage, DO NOT try to cancel it. 0.65 is a very big mod that takes up quite some time to install - especially on older pcs. The installation just seems to have stopped because of the big files it has to extract. Wait some minutes, usually the installation will proceed then. - If you get an error ,stating that you have an invalid file archive or a similar message, delete all FH Installations and try to install 0.65 again. If this doesnt work, you have to download 0.65 again. Try a different mirror. - For more information and FAQ, visit the FAQ thread in our forums: http://www.gamingforums.com/showthread.php?t=115233
Haha. This would be very useful, if anyone took the time to read this through, which I'm afraid won't happen. Believe me, the forum will be flooded by "IN WHICH ORDER SHOULD I INSTALL THE FILES? 1, 2 OR 3 FIRST!?" and "MY INSTALL IS BROKEN! IT FREEZES AT THIS POINT!" -posts.
But anyway, good quide.

-all staffers please leave the re-direct in the GF general discussion!-
this post has been moved to the support forum to replace the "stand alone" copy overthere. This has been done to make sure that a question is asked in the GD version but not in the support forum and visa versa. People can now clearly acces this support thread even via the GD.

Bah, I forgot about the extracting. Going to need to get another six gigabytes freed up. Oh well, it's quite worth it. :)
hmm... I've downloaded the .rar using torrent, but when I extract, it only extracts the 3rd installation file, "Forgotten_Hope_V0-65_Install_3_of_3.exe". The .rar, however, is 1,65 GB, while the .exe is 404 mb. How can I extract them all?
(Why can't I edit in here?) Cancel that one, this will be the last time when I use something other than Winrar to extract .rar files!
Aaargh! I'm horribly confused! I don't have this 'bit-torrent' thingamajingy and I can't find any free mirrors in ENGLISH! Someone please help!:(
