Forgotten Hope is a modification for Battlefield 1942 that concentrates on adding both a more realistic and more enjoyable playing experience than the original BF1942 and includes many new specially designed custom maps to play in.

The mod includes over 250 new pieces of authentic equipment (more than any other Second World War FPS), with tanks such as the mighty Russian IS-2 heavy tank and the diminutive Japanese Ha-Go light tank, aircraft from the rugged American P47 Thunderbolt to the antiquated British Fairey Swordfish seaplane, warships such as the British Ark Royal aircraft carrier and the German Battleship Tirpitz and weapons including the powerful German Panzerfausts and the fearsome Russian PPSh-41 submachine gun.

New gameplay elements include a pilot class, which is now the only class equipped with a parachute, these can be found as pickup kits near most aircraft. There are also kits that contain deployable heavy machine guns, which can be setup anywhere on the map to create defensive strongpoints. Tank combat is greatly enhanced by a specially designed armour code, which determines how much armour anti-tank shells can penetrate, making it advantageous to outflank tanks to attack their weak rear armour. There are also towed anti-tank and anti-aircraft guns, these can be driven to a hidden ambush point then deployed to surprise the enemy.

The infantry class system has also been altered for more realistic and tactical gameplay, most maps will now allow you to choose from close quarters (an SMG armed soldier), assault (a rifleman who can use special rifle grenades), support (armed with a light machine gun), anti-tank (armed with an anti-tank weapon such as the bazooka) and officer (who can act as a spotter for artillery weapons and has an SMG). Sniper kits can now only be found spread around the maps, usually in special sniper hides. There are also paratrooper kits for certain maps that call for them, such as falschrimjager for the invasion of Crete.

All these features are implemented in a historically accurate way, so you won’t find the King Tiger on a map set in 1940. Speaking of maps, we also have many new custom maps (more maps than came with BF9142 infact) in addition to modified versions of some of the more popular original maps. The game also includes a new army, the Polish forces, and the French and Italian armies are also currently being implemented. In the future you can expect a host of new features, such as artillery batteries and flame based weapons along with even more accurate equipment for all armies.

So whether you like house to house fighting in Stalingrad, tank battles in the Tunisian desert or dogfights in skies over southern England – Forgotten Hope has something for you.

On some maps (like Wake) my game crashes with the error which tells me, that bf1942.exe doesn't work. Does someone have the same problems?

My noble comrade joeldecaroual like to know if it is true that the battlefield forgotten hope 1942 is current working on a project with battlegroup42 FHSW and also in creating a Pre Game based on browser type and generals geroes oo where the war campaign is made by online players for real, example: out with my German truck and went to berlin satlingrado restocking course or else a player led the Japanese armada of Tokyo Bay and navehou up the waters of pearl Harbor in oahu .... understand? 're rolonado rumors here in Brazil you will do this, look I do not know anything but if it is true that the Battlefield 1942 mod FH will be immortalized as myself will just want to play it ....

Hello! Im curious, does this mod support single player? I never play games online due to having dial up, but I always loved Battlefield 1942's single player, and well, this mod sounds pretty good

And, not sure if ya'll are closely connected, but is the Secret Weapons submod also single player?

Ah, excellent :D

And yeah, dial up is pretty brutal. I can only personally download small things. My girlfriend downloads big things for me though :P

Hi, All FH-Fans
Each Year we celebrate the heroes of ww2 by having a D-Day event.
This Year will be no different eventhough we are having rough times.
Somehow we allways manage to stay alive and it's partly because of YOU.
YOU really make the difference !
The D-day event will start Thursday the 5th of June and go on
until the 6th of June.
Operation Overlord spans over months so there might be some
surprises after the 6th of June.
5th of June 19H00 GMT+1
6th of June 19H00 GMT+1

Good morning all comrades!
Now I suppose you have a clean installation of Battlefield 1942 + FH.
Be sure if your PC OS is Windows Vista or Windows 7 or Windows 8 or Windows 8.1 you installed this compatibility patch:
Please look at this following topic:
Note: I wrote a very detailed tutorial with many pictures about compatibility patch installation. Attention! Warning! It was for an old version of the patch but the method is similar (analog, same) for installing the most recent patch.
Please read this tutorial:
