Version 0.552 Released!!!

Does your game server browser freeze?


Another hotfix has been released! It fixed a lot of bugs which were not fixed in the latest hotfix and which caused the maps to crash. All you need to do is downloading this small archive (it's only 10 MB in size) and extracting it to your FHSW mod directory: .../Battlefield 1942/Mods/FHSW. Hotfix is both appliable to 0.55 and 0.551 versions.

Confirm overwriting all the files when prompted.

Note: You must have this patch applied in order to play on FHSW-Europ and PrinceUmeboshi's game server.


The GameSpy service has been closed. That means your game built-in server browser is not working anymore what causes your game to freeze.

To fix it, just apply this very simple patch provided by the Team-Simple.

In case of patching failure, use this alternative patch installer.

The Game

Forgotten Hope Secret Weapon is a Japanese Minimod for the German Forgotten Hope, a Battlefield 1942 Modification.

It started as a small Minimod for Forgotten Hope. The original intention was to bring some crazy but really planned weapons to FH like the Ratte Tank. However after 5 years of development, Forgotten Hope Secret Weapons became the biggest mod for Battlefield 1942 with dozens of improvements for the 'old' Forgotten Hope version 0.7! FHSW gives you more than 500 new equipments, new physics (bouncing bullets and towable artillery), more maps and even more mapimprovements/-changes on FHmaps and the new nation Hungary. Atleast 690 vehicles are available from the FH, FHSW, BF1942, Hungarian and much more mods. Atleast 138 active maps included those from other mods. The main theme of the mod is World War II. Although the Second World War ended in 1945 after the Japanese surrender, FHSW also focuses on fictional battles after the surrender such like Operation Coronet and The Forgotten Jungle since version 0.42 and even fights between the USA and Russia until 1948 since version 0.5 and since version 0.51 also an Winter War battle is available! The maps took place anywhere in the world: the Pacific Campaign, Western Front, Eastern Front, North Africa Campaign, Invasion of Germany, Burma Campaign, Italian front, Winterwar, Seawar on the Atlantic, the Singapore Campaign, hiden in the Alpine and the invasion of the United States. From infantry and tank units to the mighty fleets on sea and in the air. It all possible in FHSW! And some of them you never hear before! We welcome you on our Wikipedia! Please join this small world because when this one is over, there will be no second one! Because FHSW is the best mod ever! Its a gameplay you will never see again!
