Yes, we have taken notes and will look into it. For the time being - good night and
enjoy your Christmas! We're not going to stop here. :)

762#2 will automatically restart after a crash so you can test as much as you like.
762#1 will run vanilla FH2 without any changes so you can enjoy FH2 without problems.

Haven't really kept up to speed with these new map packs. So I fancied some Xmas FH2 time and had a look into it.

 I downloaded the mappack from the links given.

Had to download unzipping software + spyware  :o  as my Win 7 wouldn't unpack it.

Then extracted the file to bf2/mods and replaced the old fh2 folder....

Was able to have a normal game on the 762 server with the normal maps. BUT when trying to join the server running the new maps, the game told me "I did not have the map!".

In my mods/fh2/levels  folder I can see the new maps there  e.g. "fht_ai_el_agheila" "waw_carpiquet_aerodrome" etc

So why am I told that I don't have the maps?  ???

Thanks for any help.  :)

did you look inside the map folders to see if anything there.  Sometimes if you fail to extract rar properly it will still give you some mostly empty folders.  This happens if you use the wrong password for example.  BTW the password is UNITED, upper case.  The proper size of the file when extracted should be 1.68 GB.  I think 7zip is a good free program.

WinRAR works even beyond the "trial" period (if you can bear it nagging about the registration), no need to download other, possibly spyware-infested programs for the unpacking.

You should have MERGED the folders, NOT replaced (ie. unpack the "fh2" folder into the same bf2/mods folder where the regular fh2 folder is and/or unpack it somewhere else and then copy it into the bf2/mods folder and answer yes to the question about merging the folders). Answer yes to question about overwriting older versions of the files (all files in the pack are 762 specific). Though I'm surprised that you could play the game at all as deleting the vanilla files essentially removes the mod.

Bollocks!  ::) Well I reinstalled a working fh2 folder.  Then I unzipped the mappack again using Winrar, Copied it to mods folder....I was asked to merge the folders....did that. fh2 is now 7.88 GB

Loaded the game up. Tried to join the 762 server running the map pack.. "you do not have the map the server is running!"  >:(

ffs  ....well I tried.  Guess FH2 is finished for me :'(



Edit* Seems the other players on the non map pack 762 server have the same problems...they've also tried to install the map pack without success.

I can't see what I've done wrong though. I've followed the instructions to the letter, and I've downloaded the map pack from 3 different hosts and tried to install (merge) them each in turn into a fresh fh2. But the 762 keeps saying I don't have the map they're running..when I know damn well I do..........

Shame this couldn't have been done as an auto update?  :-\

"tournament server"?   That might be the wrong server and thus some different version of a map.  This pack is on [762] Ranked #2 CMP ONLY [100p].  Other servers have who knows what on them.  If you can't get on this server you might go to http://www.762-ranking.de/site/ for more help.  They have guys on their TS channel that could walk you through it if necessary.

Hey Capten,

download the pack from the sources in this post:
http://www.762-ranking.de/site/viewtopic.php?f=26&t=183

Make sure the game is not running.

Best option is the torrent file, that definitely works.
Unpack the .rar file onto your desktop using WINRAR.
PW: UNITED

Cut out the "fh2" folder that you have just unpacked.
Go into your FH2 installation folder (C:\...EAGames\Battlefield2\mods\
(NOT into your "My Documents" folder, that is just for config files and screenshots.)
Paste the "fh2" folder into this mods folder NEXT to the existing fh2 folder.

Replace/overwrite/integrate: yes, yes, yes.
Play the game.

If there are still problems, contact us on Teamspeak/skype.
We can walk you through or help you via screenshare.

We are working on a launcher but we have to make one from scratch,
so it takes some time.

go to the map where ur battlefield 2 is installed then click on mods -> then click fh2 -> then levels and paste the downloaded maps in there, i guess that should do the trick

No just do it exactly as I described in my last post.
Just put the WHOLE "fh2" folder from your download into your \mods folder.

Nothing else. It contains not only the levels but also equipment. That is why you need the whole folder.

I had the same problem and it was in the password.

I typed lower case united and got error messages but still it would install the file. when joining the server I had the same as these guys.

Strange thing ofcourse is that it is possible to unpack and copy with the wrong password. Do not know if this is also the problem for these guys.

So please make sure you used CAPS for the PASSWORD!!!!!!!
