Great job Jan, I didn't know you were a mapper! Well done. Did you use BC to modify the map?

Thanks for the nice comments guys. The first map (rf_frostbite) is an infantry-only map, there are no vehicles for it.

The second map has vehicles, and I created two variants of it for the SW expansion. At this point I am trying to add SP support to the second map, but AI isn't my thing at all, so if anyone would like to give it a try, by all means, please go ahead.

It would be an honour to have the Strasbourg map in a future FHSW mappack.

Hi windigo!
The things which can help depend on which operating system you are on, but most commonly it's best to run bf1942.exe without a compatibility mode, without "Battlefield 1942 Windows Vista/7 compatibility fix", with the 4GB patch applied, and with "run as administrator" enabled. So it would help if you provide more info about your system. Since you mentioned it's only been like this for about 3 weeks maybe it is influenced by some change in your system or the way you use it. For example, bf1942 may crash when you have some programs running (like some media players or some programs with overlays) or if you alt+tab out of the game.

I am pretty sure Major is talking about a different event lol
Apart from that: Let's rather not set overplayed or vanilla maps. Proko is kinda overplayed too. But El Ala is even worse.
Sittang is good for many players, unique and covers jungle combat which we wouldn't have otherwise.

1. Fall Weiss (Tanks/Poland)
2. Fht Sittang Bridge (Jungle+Inf/Pacific)
3. Prokhorovka (Tanks+Air/Russia)
4. Merville Battery (Landing operation/France)
5. Leyte day 2 (Naval/Pacific)
6. Bombing the Reich (Air/Western Front)
7. Operation Rattrap (Desert+Special Ops/Fictional)

The name could be "FHSW Showcase Event" or "Combined Arms Event". I favour first smile

Some compromises then....

1. Fall Weiss
2. Fht Sittang Bridge or El Ala as Major suggests? (or even Supercharge from 42?)
3. Prokhorovka sounds like a good choice after all then.
4. Merville Battery
5. Leyte day 2
6. Bombing the Reich
7. Operation Rattrap

Maybe do this and call it "combined arms battles that turned WW2" or whatever.

Some French early war one with planes (Fall Weiss?)
El Alamein
Prokhorovka
Iwo Jima
Spring Awakening

Also wow a girl on the server better not talk about FISTING so much.

Hi, I have a problem after the map is finished and before uploading a new map bf ends with an error message, now it crashes while loading the
map (the program has stopped working). It doesn't matter if bf1942
classic or fhsw. This is how it crashes for me for about 3 weeks.I tried
backward compatibility, setting up CPU core spooling. But it only
helped for a while. Does anyone have any repair tips?I searched the
forum here as well, but so far it has not succeeded.

Yea, maybe Fall Weiss is the better idea. What's E-3s opinion (or other peoples)??

I would leave Proko since it includes tanks AND planes and is more dynamic than A day of Zitadelle, biased Pakfront or Kharkow Outskirts. We could also set Battle of Valirisk for the same reasons.

Ok, sounds good.

i'd much rather do Fall Weiss or the other Polish push-map, are you sure it's good idea to replace it with Suomussalmi which is not push and rather long chaos?

For Prokhorovka, do we have some other idea for tank battle? If not, then sure lets do it.

I miss a proper tank/air battle like Prokhororvka in the list. Also, there are two early war maps, but none from 1941 to 1943. That should be more balanced in order to show the whole spectrum of the mod.

I think nine maps for an event is too many. I can only speak for myself, but I definitely are not going to take part in an event/fightnight that long. Keep it easy, we can't show everything in one event anyway. So I suggest to take only one map for each year of the war and that's still seven! Also, we should try to use more unique and no vanilla maps like Battle of Britain.

My thought about the current list:

- Fall Weiss (1939) (ok)
- Battle of Britain (1940) (too vanilla, also for air battles Bombing the Reich is more appropriate)
- Merville Battery (1944) (nice!)
- Omaha (1944) (overrated and seen in too many games and mods already)
- Leyte day 2 (1944) (good!)
- Operation Kikusui Day 1 (Sinking Yamato) (1945) (Yamato won't get sunk, the map is biased as hell)
- Battle of Iwo Jima (I saw it disabled from the list, does it work?) (1945) (you been there when it crashed and I unticked it)
- Bombing the Reich (1945) (good!)
- Rattrap (Fiction) (good!)

Instead I suggest:

1. Suomussalmi
2. Fht Sittang Bridge
3. Prokhorovka
4. Merville Battery
5. Leyte day 2
6. Bombing the Reich
7. Operation Rattrap

We've got a chance to get noticed by a bigger streamer, thanks E3 for making the connection!. The idea would be to have an event with all of the iconic maps of the FHSW so that we could show her what it is about smile
Her twitch profile (https://www.twitch.tv/nixiepixel) has approx. 2,4k followers so it would be interesting how many people will find FHSW during/after the stream meaning we got to be prepared for a lot of new players.

I would like to show there are early maps as well as late war maps including all aspects of warware. My suggestions for the event maps are:
- Fall Weiss (1939)
- Battle of Britain (1940)
- Merville Battery (1944)
- Omaha (1944)
- Leyte day 2 (1944)
-
Operation Kikusui Day 1 (Sinking Yamato) (1945)
- Battle of Iwo Jima (I saw it disabled from the list, does it work?) (1945)
- Bombing the Reich (1945)
- Rattrap (Fiction)

I'd make this event a rather 9 map special, possibly including Merville Battery to include the paratrooper aspect before Omaha, thoughts? Or the flyer would include Fall weiss up to Leyte and then other maps would be after event?

@Slobodan: We really do need a flyer please konik? I will send you marchew biggrin

@Radio: Are we ok to distribute the all-in-one installer capacity-wise? I expect max load of 50 people downloading it.

If it achieves the result of the tank being disabled or destroyed then wouldn't that be a "proper effort" rules permitting? German tanks even have that grenade thing on top so that makes mounting it to FIST it even harder.

If i'm driving round the corner in a jeep or whatever and collide with something and we explode will i get into trouble despite it being force majeure? or a flag gets capped on pushmap and i'm still there what do you want me to do... suicide? also sometimes i like to flank to get a flag and some people construe this as precapping like on FISTING?.

I'M GLAD I'M NOT AN ADMIN LOL

Quote Jeanstoneze: "On some maps (namely Trois Ponts, Nordwind, Seelow) this is the only chance to kill enemy tanks."

Just not true. The other team also has heavy tanks, AT-mines and -guns and 50 lbs charges. Killing a tank like this is just lame and lazy and shows that players do not want to make a proper effort with other weapons. I never do it and I am very successful with all kinda AT-weapons. So please don't tell me this bullshit.
On the other hand you are kinda right when there are TOO many heavy tanks for one team. Because of that I wanted to remove a few from Battle of the Bulge via SSM, but then somebody showed up and said "Noo, leave them"... As you can see, sometimes it is impossible to find solutions in this community. Also a part of the reason why I am less and less willing to make an effort.

Quote: "Take it easy always."

Well, this is exactly what leads to more and more exploiting and rule breaking like kamikaze on non-pacific maps etc. And we are at a point where we have to talk about that.

Quote: "If someone kills me in uncap, I just spawn other flag or try to find and eliminate the sneaker, and dont complain about rule breaking."

Agreed, I do the same.

Quote: " You know, this is not Criminal Code"

It's not?! Some people open a new thread and start arguing like a lawyer when they get kicked or demand "proof" when a well-known cheater gets banned. I think this is another problem: Most people here know what is right and what is wrong, but they pretend they don't and keep looking for loopholes to fucking exploit them. You can witness this hyprocritical behaviour in all parts of society nowadays and the question is, if we let people get away with it or start acting like men. And this means, if you do something wrong, you do a step back and say "Sorry".

jeanstoneze I was just about to say more or less what you said but you said it better lol

Some heavy tanks the ONLY way of killing them is to fist the top (reminds me of ODDBALLS speech in KELLY'S HEROES about TIGER) and well if someone has managed to get on there and do that fair play to
them I say, on kabu people do it all the time not our fault it makes you go flying.

About CHAD NEGRO THE BENEFACTOR, way I see it he/she/it conducted a top secret operation to prevent Cleaner-Lite from obtaining his perfect 80-0 score by firing a big gun at us the whole game at OUR SPAWN. Anyway like the fisting a tank top if he managed to evade everyone and do that WHAT A FEAT AT LEAST HE DID SOME FOOT SLOGGING AND NOT SPAWN RAPING.

I forgot to say BAM BAM kept attacking uncaps on FISTING the other night but i don't think he understood the "pushmap" concept and was trying to recap, I think going behind enemy lines to blow up a big gun is fair game IMO.

Specifically, today we were playing Gold Beach. On two separate occasions, Chad Negro bypassed 2 Axis flags, went into the Axis rear non-capable flag, and tried to kill me when I was on the Axis Totgun.
On any classic BF1942 servers, and in bf-league competition, you can attack active artillery and flak guns if they are active even in main bases. This is not the rule in fhsw-europe, but a) for some players that could be a habit from vanilla 1942 and b) it looks quite logical that you can attack someone who shoot you, especially if the shooting thing makes huge impacton battlefield like Todt gun does.
Quote marduk ()
For example some players (even other admins...) jump on a tank with Panzerfaust, Bazooka or AT-rifle and shot at the roof until the tank explodes and kills both the attacker and the tanker (I see this as a form of Kamikaze).
On some maps (namely Trois Ponts, Nordwind, Seelow) this is the only chance to kill enemy tanks. If you shoot zookas to front/side/back, it doesnt cause any damage, but if you shoot top it makes one-shot (not sure if you know, you can bazooka one-shot even Maus if it turns tower by 90 degrees and you fire to the bottom of its tower)
Take it easy always. If someone kamikazes me, I dont give a fuck about it. If someone kills me in uncap, I just spawn other flag or try to find and eliminate the sneaker, and dont complain about rule breaking. You know, this is not Criminal Code that we have here and we dont put people in prison for breaking rules.
