I'm very sorry to announce that HHF is basically over. For the past few months the team has literally just been me and Matt, and we've both tried to keep afloat. The novemember beta was supposed to give us both a kick in the ass to put HHF back on track properly and possibly get some new blood, but sadly it didn't work. Matt's lost motivation and i'm only a modeller, so i can't really continue the mod on my own.
As promised, we'll release what we have so far, but don't get your hopes up.
We have relatively little to show for 3 years of work, and we're deeply sorry to all the people who've stuck with us since the start. I wish we had more to give you guys, infact i wish we could have finished it for you guys.
Anyway, as promised -
To instrall -
Extract using winrar to the data folder in your HW2 directory, should be somewhere along the lines of c:/programme files/sierra/homeworld2/data
Right click on your desktop shortcut, go to properties, and change the target location by adding -overridebigfile on the end (outside of the quotemarks if i remember correctly)
Run the game. Done.
According to matt, the frigate, longsword and anchor 9 placeholder is in game, he doesn't know how far he got with the frigateyard.
Again, apologies for all of this. There's a chance in the future that if we get more team members we might restart, but given that over the past 3 years we've managed to recruit a grand total of 3 reliable team members, it doesn't seem likely. I'm going to offer to do some modeling for other halo mods (Covenant at war, sins of the prophets, etc.) so you guys should check those out if you're still after space-based Halo mods. I'm also thinking of starting one for Sword of the Stars should there be anyone interested in helping.
EDIT by overlordjebus:
I just thought I'd contribute to the goodbye by giving everyone the very first version of HHF, done by Beta before he left. This mod was restarted several time, and this was the very first version we made, with all of the old models. I can't remember whether anything has guns or not, but it's installed in the same way as the one above.
