AWESOME! It's nice to have new fonts but adding SP to one of the new maps is sweet and unexpected. Thank you guys!

Great! Will the other Eastern Front maps be officially available for singleplayer too?

More Eastern Front maps with single player support will come in the future. Arad is in the pipeline, but it will not be included in the next patch.

I got the bf2 navmesh program working on my computer now, so I can generate navmeshes. However and unfortunately my problems are now with 3dsMax 9. I've actually already generated a navmesh for Lenino 16p, but it crashes during the load screen at 15% with no error message in windowed mode probably due to islands.

I had a 30 day trial for 3dsMax 9 (I believe that's the only version BF2 tools works with) in which I spent 12hrs per day familiarizing myself with it. So I can edit navmeshes, do some animating, etc. However version 9 is no longer supported by Autodesk. They will not answer customer service questions. You cannot buy it. You cannot do anything with it if you get a new computer (like I did). Even though I have a validation key from back when I was a student, when I go to register it nothing happens. Whenever the dialog pops up saying my trial has expired I click to enter my information in + activate it, a new dialog pops up then immediately closes not even 1 second later. 
 
If anyone has any ideas at all as to how I can get 3dsMax 9 working again on my computer, please send me a PM. I can absolutely create navmeshes for the new Eastern Front maps as well as some of the CMP Japanese maps (I've already coded all of the CMP vehicles for AI). I already have Coop Arad, Dukla Pass, Sammatus, and Seelow Heights working on 2.53. All I need is to get the now unsupported 3dsmax 9 working again and I'll immediately get to work bringing coop to the new Eastern Front maps.
 
Edit: Formatting.

@ VolkssturmGewehr
I am using Maya when I have to connect islands or to add missing navmesh or fine tune the navmesh.
Also, you can use Blender in order to edit the navmesh. There are plenty of tutorials in this regards. Not to mention Blender is free afaik.

I've searched for that string in FH2 HUD configuration files, but haven't found any occurence, However there is one mention in vanilla files (HUD\HudSetup\Basic\HudElementsKilled.con in menu_server.zip).
I suppose that deleting or renaming this file should do the trick.

Thx for suggestion. Rename or remove, did not make any difference for me. Middle top box with txt still showing when dead.
