I'm a complete FH newbie and I'm wondering what maps, files and mods are essential (or recommended) to download/install.

Currently, I have downloaded:

FH 0.7 mod "fan mappack" #5 "fan mappack" #6 Historical T&S mod/patch.

What else is out there for FH that you guys would suggest getting?

For what it's worth, I kind of missed out on the FH hoopla back when it first came out (played vanilla and DC), but I'm going to make up for lost time now (as I await FH2). Besides, I got bored with BF2 months ago, and I've yet to test out BF1942 on my new rig.

Thanks. :smokin:

You dont need mappack 5, only 6. Make sure you have Bf up-to-date.

I use the Cheese-Bratwurst Sound and Textures add-on, and HIGHLY recommend it.

Thanks.

I forgot to mention that I had patched my game to 1.61b. It looks like I had everything I'll need and I was already set to go. :)

I installed everything and played a little coop to get familiar with it again (I'm a bit rusty). I wish I'd had a rig that ran BF1942 this good a few years ago!

I have one more question: I did a quick check with ASE and I only found 7 servers (that ping under 200), with only two of them populated. Does that low a number sound right? It seems like this forum is quite active, and that the FH community is still strong enough to support more servers than that. Did everyone jump ship for BF2 as they wait for FH2?

Unfortunately it sounds right. It depends on where you live. I only filter european servers, because servers from overseas have a very high ping. I don't know how many good american servers there are. Here in europe the only two occupied servers are "HSLAN" and "Home of the damned priests"

in america, usually its just the WOLF servers, and maybe some 9thinf action. WaW can sometimes be filled. sadly its harder for people to get into FH due to its higher learning curve and at time unforgiving difficulty. i love DC with all my heart but i really do with all of em would give FH half a shot
