This sounds mod, does it have anything to do with the panzerfaust sound different? I got on the Stug in Prague 1, and a German with a panzerfaust shot at me. The sound.... something about it sounds.... familiar.
I really don't know. I never used this sound mod myself.

Well, my suspicions are correct. Rockets and tanks now give off the original explosion sound, rather than what Deluxe gave it.

EDIT: On the downside, the mod seems to have deleted my FFF soldiers. :|

Try to download the files again. This should restore the FFF soldiers.

EDIT: the sounds mod replaces only the sounds.dta archive, so it shouldn't interfere with those FFF soldiers.

I redownloaded them and put them where they needed to be, merging files and replacing files. But nothing happened. I still only have the vanilla soldiers.

The sound mod in unaffected, as you predicted.
I will need to step away from my computer for a few hours.

I downloaded the sounds mod and it doesn't restore the default soldiers - i have still those from FFF expansion.

See picture below.

Then i removed the sounds mod and i restored the previous sounds.dta archive version (my edited one without menu sounds) and the FFF soldiers are still in place. You must did something wrong i suppose.

Maybe ask NilsZ for help - he originally added FFF soldiers to H&D Deluxe. That's his idea. It is a part of his HIDDEN AND DANGEROUS EXTENDED mod.

Sorry I am late; my computer crashed last week, after attempting to fix a corrupt Httpwin.dll thing on my computer.

OK Myron. I added the halftrack model imported from Medal of Honor: Spearhead into the Ardenes 1 mission. See picture below.

OK Myron. So i replaced all of the rest default H&D Deluxe halftrack models with either the Winter camo halftrack or the Summer camo halftrack models from Medal of Honor.

List of updated missions:

-> Danube 3,

-> Germany 4, Germany 5 and Germany 6,

-> Ardenes 1 and Ardenes 2.

I also edited the Germany 4 and Germany 5 video briefings, so now the new halftrack model will be shown - instead of the default one.

That is excellent news.

Also, this computer crash I had a while ago might have been a blessing in disguise.

So here you have all the needed files: updated missions, halftrack model with Summer camo imported from Medal of Honor: Allied Assault and the halftrack model with Winter camo imported from Medal of Honor: Spearhead.

Unpack all 3 archives into your main (root) H&D Deluxe directory.

Please give me later some feedback!

I increased the fuel capacity of the player's halftrack in the Germany 5 mission to 160 liters - according to the Sdkfz. 251 technical specifications that i found on the Internet. This way i ensured that the player will reach the mission extraction point without running out of fuel.

In addition i re-uploaded the halftrack summer and winter archives. There were some unnecessary files in them.

Please download again the missions.rar, halftrack summer.rar and halftrack winter.rar archives from my previous post. I apologize for the confusion. :oops:

I also tested the player's halftrack in the Germany 5 mission. Everything went smoothly.

You will need to upgrade/update the mod on the other website. I can't seem to find the game at all on my computer ever since I got it back from the shop, thanks to the crash.

Yeah, i know that. I will update my H&D Deluxe Ultimate mod on Mod DB as soon as possible. I just wanted to test those new halftrack models before release. I also wanted to know your opinion first.

Just download the actual H&D Deluxe Ultimate mod release and copy over those 3 archives (uploaded on my previous post) into your main H&D Deluxe directory: https://www.moddb.com/mods/hd-deluxe-ul ... imate-mod1

However, i decided that i will change the default pictures of the Germany 4 and Germany 5 missions.

See below.

If you want you could keep the old missions pictures though. These new ones will be included in my next H&D Deluxe Ultimate mod update together with the updated missions and new custom halftrack models from Medal of Honor.

I am so torn between nostalgia & tradition vs. the practical & continuity.
