Gute Nacht Marduk,

Ich habe es geschafft. Just some aspects to consider: 
- I think it should be facing one horizontal side, as it is wider than the very sub's hull itself. 
- Should it stay at stern or at port?
- At the moment is a weapon apart, same as some extra AA guns in carriers. Should I include it as another player position or is it fine as like now?

Flettner thing is easy as pie, can be done in a while, this took some hours until I figured it out...

See you at goulag

From FHSW EUROPE EVENTS - NEW THREAD (m):
Quote bubu ()
Repacking with the new Peleliu now.

Troll posted the link with new Peleliu 2 days after 1+2+3 was released, i.e. 2019-10-14. Sorry for not updating it.


Sorry, but that one is now outdated too wacko biggrin

It was updated for the December 2019 CM event, and then again after feedback from that event. The newest version available now can be found in the Kabu.server December 2019 mappack (their latest): https://drive.google.com/file/d/14kLlLkLSxy3jfJpaF_d-i5SnCsvs0SXg/view. Battle_of_Peleliu.rfa there is dated December 15 2019.

If we wait a few more days (until Saturday) we may have an even newer version, because it's time for the next CM event (held 3 times a year). Then several days after that they'd probably release a new Kabu.server mappack version.

but u of course Dont care

I will ignore the "but u of course Dont care" part cos I don't have time for annoying bull shit.

It's true that I didn't post when that one was released but only after I was surprised by you releasing mappack 3 version 2. Frankly, I'm failing to keep up with the many things that need to be said or done, due to a combination of other occupations/priorities and procrastination/laziness (in other words, I'm guilty of not caring enough myself). I have about half a dozen other relatively important things to post about on this forum. Sorry about that :/ And sorry that my posts end up long biggrin

After what happened with mappack 3 version 2 I think I did tell you in game chat about the latest version from December (although I didn't post here about it)...

Anyway, I'm going to propose something practical. The Japanese community seems to be relatively good overall at organizing map testing, CM events, collecting feedback, releasing mappacks and spreading the word about all of that (thanks to people like 1121, and not to mention all the other map authors and contributors). So I think it's a good idea to adopt their map pack on our server too, in addition to our mappacks. In the case of Battle_of_Peleliu we'd replace our old version of it with the one in their mappack, which is the latest version. In this way we'd be fully compatible (no conflicting maps from the two servers' mappacks).

Their mappack releases take the form of one archive file containing all custom maps which are currently added to their server's map list, and this archive is updated once every few months, and the release carries the date in its name, like "kabuServerMaps201912.zip". So, it's like only one big mappack with newer and newer versions.

We could do this mappack adoption once and then if it works alright we could continue doing that with their future mappack versions. We don't need to have all their maps in our server's map list. But we could also rapidly adopt several of their tried and tested maps if we want to (there are several maps there which I think would be good for us).

Does somebody have old versions of Kakazu Ridge, Korsun Pocket and Kushira?

Those maps used to work fine in older FHSW versions but fucked up with the latest relaease. It would be quite easy to bring them back just including old versions of them in the mappack.


I checked and only Kushira has been replaced in version 0.61. Kakazu Ridge and Korsun Pocket are actually the same files as in 0.6. I can find the ones from 0.55 and then we could test them to see if they work in 0.61 (it's actually not guaranteed) but there's another option available to us. Let's check the list of maps in kabuServerMaps201912.zip, ordered from the most recently modified one backwards:

    Surigao_Strait-1944.rfa
    Battle_of_Peleliu.rfa we have an old version
    203_Hill-1904.rfa
    Battle_of_Abyssinia.rfa
    operation_unthinkable.rfa we have it
    rescue_operation_in_carentan.rfa we have a different Carentan
    steel_stream.rfa
    polish_resistance.rfa we have it
    kushira_day2.rfa this one works
    Kakazu_Ridge-1945_CM201811.rfa I don't remember playing this, but I suppose it works too
    desert_hill2.rfa we have it
    operation_da.rfa we have it
    cruik.rfa
    battle_of_foy_classic2.rfa we have it
    counterattack-1950.rfa
    meigo_sakusen-1945.rfa
    Operation_Kikusui_day2_mod.rfa we have it


So I think that we'll be able to get two of these 3 maps back this way. Now about Korsun Pocket: I think that Kabu.server runs this map. I don't know if they have any SSM for it, but I can check or ask. What's the issue that we experience with it on our server? Mass disconnects? Server crash?

I'm still unsure which version of Peleliu we have right now, and what to recommend about the event this Sunday (adopt kabuServerMaps201912.zip now for the latest Peleliu or wait a week or two for their next version of the mappack, which may or may not include an even newer version of Peleliu).

2.a: ORIGIN VersionYou need to install FH 0.7 from the following installer:
https://u.to/l8TaCA OR https://u.to/7ZvnEA

2.b: CD Version
You need to install FH 0.7 by the following installers. They have to be installed in chronological order:
1. https://u.to/7pvnEA
2. https://u.to/7JvnEA
3. https://u.to/6pvnEA

the old fh 3 pack installer is not required for fhsw on cd rom version in fact it introduced more problems on Windows 7 because that operating system cannot load the original FH properly. I suggest keeping this link active only. https://www.moddb.com/mods....-hope-1 this is a fixed version from fh that works on Windows 7 without compatibility mode Windows 98 or compatibility fix


I'm an old bf1942 player I go far back all the way to 2002
and I also play cnc generals.

Hello,

I download the updated mappacks 1+2+3 from the link on your main page. When i try and launch the .exe file it states "not a valid win32 application. I have deleted and re-downloaded 3 times with same issue.

Any Suggestions?

Thanks, Shaun.

Hi!

The .exe seems to be a newer format that is not supported on old versions of Windows, such as XP where you see this error message. You can install it under a newer operating system (32-bit or 64-bit, I think it works on both) and then, if needed, manually copy the map files to the appropriate folder (\Battlefield 1942\Mods\FHSW\Archives\bf1942\levels\) wherever you want to play FHSW from. Alternatively, you can download the mappacks in archive formats and manually extract them to the appropriate folder. Here you can find a link for Mappack 3 version 2 in zip format: https://www.moddb.com/mods....or-fhsw and then you need to add the updated Peleliu map... I didn't check to be 100% sure which version of Battle_of_Peleliu Bubu added, but I assume it's the one from December 15 2019, which you can find in Kabu.server's December 2019 mappack: https://drive.google.com/file/d/14kLlLkLSxy3jfJpaF_d-i5SnCsvs0SXg/view. Replace Battle_of_Peleliu.rfa with the one from that mappack.

If you have more questions, ask.

@Bubu @radiosmersh I think it's a good idea to always release things in archive formats too (or at least self-extracting .exe formats which can be opened as archives with software such as 7zip), for cases such as this and for those who don't want to have to execute .exe files from unknown sources.
Also, as I said on Discord:
@radiosmersh @Bubu I noticed that the manual installation guides have not been updated with mappack 3 neither in the Discord's #info channel nor in the forum here nor in the wiki: https://fhsw.fandom.com/wiki/Installation_Guide (please add an archive format in these places)
@eYe.ris The install guide on ModDB doesn't even mention the 4GB patch, but nowadays it seems to be necessary on current Windows versions, so I think that it should be added as a required step. It also now needs to be updated with the latest release of mappack 3 (version 3).

Yes, I think those maps all used to work fine in Version 0.6

Personally I wouldn't like to see a Me 262 on a sub coz it never exitsted, not even something similar. In fact I think with applying this we would cross a border to more silly stuff which I wouldn't like. But I support the idea of putting a Flettner on a Typ IX submarine on certain maps.

Is it also possible to put those 30 cm rockets we already have in FHSW https://u.to/0zT1Fw on German subs as well?

Priviet comrades that have survived the Great Purges,

Yesterday I found in my hard disk pics of last year's creations, and one of them was I learned (based on the model of Battle of Cebu Island) how to make other vehicles (especially planes) be carried under the water without exploding. Thus, I made a sub carrier version off Ar 196 and Me-262.





I think we could introduce this concept in German naval maps, including the Flettner, as an approachal to Fa330: 


In which maps do you think it could be included or would you like to experience it, so we can plan it?

See you at goulag.

Yea, but nobody is working on it. The last time Radiosmersh added something was in July 2019...
