Forgotten Hope Secret Weapon (FHSW) is an unofficial continuation of the famous Forgotten Hope (FH), a Battlefield 1942 modification. We say unofficial since FHSW is developed by FH fans, not the original FH creators. In 2007 it started as a small addon but since then it has grown to be one of the biggest mods of all time! What makes this mod special is that it adds lots of - but not only - Secret Weapons which saw limited or no action at all during WW2 like jet fighters and super heavy tanks. Some of the maps feature "what-if" battles like a landing operation on the Japanese mainland or attacking a secret German base in the African desert.

Basic Starting a mod.
1) Install Battlefield 1942
The Origin version of BF1942 can be downloaded for free here and is already patched.
If you want to play with the Origin version you have to use this installer: Docs.google.com (2042 MB)
You must delete your old installation of FHSW first by simply deleting the folders "FHSW" and "STFHSW" from ../EA Games/Battlefield 1942/Mods/
There is a Windows 7 and widescreen fix included in this installer, make sure you run FHSW with admin rights and without any compatibility mode on.
