HTroop v1.0b5 Is Ready For Download!
« on: 14-10-2014, 16:10:07 »
Hello Everyone,
     HTroop v1.0b5 is now ready to be downloaded.  The admins of Battlefield Singleplayer have graciously given me server space to upload HTroop, and I have posted download links below for anyone to download.  I just want to note, that though HTroop is on BFSP, it is not only a singleplayer game, and I wish to know if anyone would be willing to host a multiplayer server, as I do not have a server tower myself.

     Here are the links to download HTroop v1.0b5:

Thank You And Enjoy!

I'm trying to find out more about this mod, but it seems a bit of promotion is needed (other than: here, click this link and download stuff).

When I Google Htroop, on the first page there are 6 links which actually are about the mod (the rest is about the real Htroop unit), one of which is this one: http://meemsy.com/v/8013

and although I smiled while watching this, I doubt this is the promotion you want. So my advice would be to work on PR a bit.

     First of all, I have seen that video.  Actually, a friend of mine made it as a joke a while back because of how long I had been making and promoting the mod (lol).  So honestly, it isn't negative PR in my opinion.  Its just hilarious.  I could not stop laughing myself : ).  Second, I do have a life away from creating and promoting HTroop.  I work 3 jobs, I am going to school, have a baby on the way, I'm moving pretty soon, and a bunch of other things.  I don't just sit at home all day, working on HTroop and playing games.  I thought that all my bases were covered, when I had made arrangements to release HTroop on the original site I mentioned.  They were supposed to help me with the PR and such.  However, I am very Thankful for cajunwolf & Dnamro helping me, and allowing HTroop to be uploaded to battlefieldsingleplayer.com

     I have been slowly attempting to post more pictures, videos, and the like.  Perhaps you, and others like yourself (who are skeptical and cautious about downloading HTroop), would consider thinking to yourselves, "This guy Joshua, put 12 years of tedious and stressful work into making a mini-mod we would all enjoy.  Perhaps we should just give it a chance, instead of asking for glamorization."

     Try it out.  If you really feel ambitious, take some screenshots or some vids and post them for me.  HTroop v1.0b5 is a Beta Release.  I still need help with a few things, and honestly, I have worked and reworked it so much, that I have not kept the best change logs.  The best way to really get a feel for HTroop, is to get relaxed, put on some good battle music, and play the mod.

Here are some videos:

For Pics, you may login to facebook and search for:  HTroop (A Mini-Mod For Battlefield 1942)

or click this link:

https://www.facebook.com/groups/463571300448691/

Also, if you haven't noticed, HTroop being distributed by BattlefieldSingleplayer.com, a very reputable distributor of Bf1942 Mods.  Does this not say anything for HTroop?

Hey, relax man. I was trying to give a friendly advice. No need to be so over defensive, I know devs have a real life and all.

I was just wondering why there is so little info to be found on this mod when I tried to Google it, especially because it exists for so long already. And yes, of course it is funny that a friend of yours made such a video, but if you want to promote your mod, and this is one of the few links which are actually about your mod, then I bet many people won't look further.

     I understand where you are coming from Slayer, and I'll explain.  Please pardon my passionate way of typing by the way.  It was not meant to sound angry.  The other FH devs will attest, that when I reply on the forums, I do so in detail, going on and on (lol).
     As for why only 6 links come up for HTroop, its because I have not released it for 12 years of creation (except to my playtesters).  Even though I do have a 2 or 3 animation issues to deal with, & a bunch of maps that I did not include in HTroop v1.0b5, that I need help with from other devs/modders, if they are willing to do so.  I am quite a bit of a perfectionist, and you may read about my trials and tribulations in the HTroop Readme.txt file, I have attached to this reply.
     As for screen shots, I have released a lot of them in a Facebook group I created called:

HTroop (A Mini-Mod For Battlefield 1942)

     If you have a Facebook account, please search for that group, and request an invite.  Please tell me who you are and where you heard of the group.  Thank You.

     If you or anyone of the FH Devs, have an ftp where I can upload the screenshots to, I will be happy to upload a whole bunch there.  Please share with me your opinion about any screenshots, or videos you see, and tell me which ones you think should be placed on a website to really show what HTroop is about.  I know I should be doing so, but I am biased, and think that every screenshot should be shown.  Much like my long winded way of speaking or typing, I believe every screenshot taken one after another for action shots, shows what HTroop is.
     Feel free to play HTroop, and send me your best screenshots.

     Alas, I do not have a website of my own.  However, Cajunwolf & Dnamro of BattlefieldSingleplayer.com are assisting me with all of this, which I Greatly Appreciate.  I also have another couple of friends who might be offering me server space to actually run an HTroop server, which I will update you on as soon as I find out more.

Thank You, and please take a look at the HTroop Readme.txt file attached to this reply.
