Here is the MP40 sight in FFF.
Your place for everything Hidden & Dangerous

1.) Bad news, the "Campaign Ammo Load" area, where you requisition weapons and equipment at the start of the campaign, is a bit disorganized. Each campaign has totally different way of arranging what goes where and how, and it makes me confused.
Sometimes everything is sorted by nationality, and other times by weapon type, and other times it just looks random. I, for one, prefer "by weapon type", if that makes sense.
Here is what I mean; suppose you scroll down through the weapons, you will see,
BAR and MP44,
And then everything else; mines, dynamite, radio receivers, uniforms, cameras, binoculars, and flare guns.
2.) Good News! The MP40 is the fast little SMG it's supposed to be, for the WHOLE game!
3.) Bad News, The MP44 is still slow in the last 3 campaigns, Poland/Easter Prussia, Ardennes/Belgium, and Greece.
4.) Good News, The BAR that I love so dearly, you gave it to me. Thank you so much.
5.) Bad News, my younger brother, Victor, is obsessed with pistols, and yet the Lugar is nowhere on the weapons-selection in the first six campaigns. One would think it'd be available starting at the Yugoslavia campaign, just like the MP40.
6.) Historically, the game's M1 carbine, and the one I have IRL, have 15 rounds in the "short magazines", (and 30 for the "long magazines", but those didn't exist until the Korean War). The first six campaigns have the correct 15 rounds, but then they drop to original, (and incorrect), 10 round magazines.
7.) DB/FFF, unlike the vanilla game, gave the Lee Enfield 10 rounds instead of 5, but the Vanilla game used a the newer Mk4 model, whereas FFF uses the older WW-1 model. Sadly, despite your written description in the game, the MK4 model still has only 5 rounds. Though I wonder, for the sake of variety, can BOTH models be present in the selection screen? Or does it go past the 64 gun capacity?
P.S. Your new avatar, who is that?
Well, I plan on combining this data file with your modified missions, so they will be available from dead Krauts, no?p.jakub88 wrote: ↑Tue Sep 26, 2017 9:12 amI added the Mauser (Luger) pistol into few stock H&D Deluxe campaigns inventory, starting from Yugoslavia to Czechoslovakia. I didn't add this weapon to the first campaign in Italy. However, you cannot obtain this weapon from dead German soldiers, because they use it only in FFF expansion.
I changed the MP44 rate of fire (shoot delay value) to the one from stock H&D.
I replaced the stock H&D MK4 sniper rifle with the Lee Enfield sniper rifle from FFF. Now, it has 10 round magazine as it should.
I will need more time to re-arrange the weapons list in the H&D Deluxe inventory and see if they still match their descriptions - which is not as easy as it sounds. However, it is not my fault, that the item list is a mess, because the game developers made it that way. I only added new items into already existing list.
I know, you can't change that. I just felt like posting the pics because I knew about them. I had to get them off my chest.p.jakub88 wrote: ↑Tue Sep 26, 2017 9:29 pmI told you before, that i cannot restore this mode of aiming in H&D Deluxe...
You better tell me something about the newest data.dta update that i made for you.
Are you finally satisfied with the results or not?
Those are mostly cosmetic changes having no impact on actual gameplay, but you wanted them.
