GO INSTALL AND TRY AND PLAY FHSW. IT IS IMPOSSIBLE

take a chill-pill and read above^ FH isnt working because the installer is checking for bf42 versions. We're working on it. Take a walk outside, dude.

Good news.   Be sure to start a thread on battlelog and link it here once you get this sorted.

EA did not even admin their servers when bf1942 was released, so why would they do it now ? :P

That said there are horribly many tk'ers online that's for sure. i guess they come from Bf3 and don't know what FF is :P

at first I trough that, but when you see a guy shot park his tank in the middle of the airfield and star killing ALL the team.... yea no.

And yes I know, they rather save their money of an admin in more pulicity for more resent tittles. Still, you would *think* Official servers are a place to play the game and not worrie about griefers

how does one setup a server that will be used for origin players instead of retail?

I got NFS: The Run LE for Christmas present a
Cool story bro, just uninstall the disc version then get the digital one only. Of course you need to download the whole thing, no biggie.

admins?................uh.. lol? wut? why would EA have "admins" on the servers? What do you think this is, some mod? Of course they don't have "admins", they never had that on any servers. Do you know what "dedicated" server even mean?  8)

You think EA would pay "admins" to run around on servers making sure people don't TK each other? wake up
btw; I lol'd  8)

Great, let's hope this will boost the player count of the long forgotten (but not quite dead yet) mods...

But I doubt it will without advertising... Most newer BF players don't even know what a mod is...
Original Forgotten Hope pun?

Speaking of original FH- I expect many battles with Finnish soldiers online in that mod now. Better be a population explosion, the game's free and the best of all time!

Although, it has you wonder. If they made the best BF free, what do they consider valuable?

true, but most people learn, except you it seems. Didnt you understand? "run around" is a figurative way of speaking, it doesnt mean literary "running", maybe we need to speak literary to you... 
EA dont have time or people to be "admins" on servers, lol.. just.. accept that you thought they sit and log in on servers and monitor peoples "behaviour" as if this was a Project reality server :D

you got it all wrong.  :-*

Our coders are working with trying to make a download for an installer which works with Origin version, give them some time and hopefully we can see a full FH1 server up soon  8)

Welp this pushed me over the edge to download, if we could get some FH1 servers going again that would be great.

botton line, EA has shit servers with no control whatsoever and they cant even be bothered to install basic scripts like kicking for minus score or when a number of tks hapen. not surpising really.

Does not work. each time you post a link, it only takes you to the home page.
he needs to go to demo's and find bf1942 in the list and click it.
