Play HD2 online again.

GameSpy discontinuate their support for many older games including our beloved Hidden & Dangerous 2. You can read offical statement by GameSpy here.
Meaning it was no longer possible to auto-search online servers by clicking on UPDATE LIST in-game.

Fortunately Qtracker is making server listing work again. Simply follow the instructions below or have a look at following YouTube tutorial created by Lukas.

Qtracker recommended

All you need to do is re-linking towards Qtracker server. Just edit your Windows hosts file as described below.

If you have not made any changes yet to your hosts file (you would know it..) you may download an already edited hosts file and simply replace yours. Your hosts file is located in
If done continue with step 3

Download hosts file

DnA (aka Hawk) has made a nice tool which auto-updates your hosts file. Simply download and execute the file, type Y and confirm with enter

Download hosts patcher

Step 1

Open your hosts file with any text editor (right-click, select open and choose e.g Windows Editor) of your choice.
hosts can be found in following directory

Step 2

Add following lines at the bottom	#hidden and dangerous 2 check		#hidden and dangerous 2 heartbeats		#hidden and dangerous 2 server list

Step 3

Run Command Line Interface (simply use Windows program search, keyword:cmd, run as administrator) and enter following code
ipconfig /flushdns
Hereafter enter nbtstat -R and you're done!
Your game should now connect to new Qtracker scripts and UPDATE LIST working. If you are hosting a HD2 server, have a look at Qtracker Your server IP should appear there (Might take some minutes)

Cooperative gamestyle

For coop it is necessary that you have the Add-On Sabre Squadron installed. For custom map modification you need the correlated files.
Easiest way is to download and install the latest CMP version. (Coop Map Package)
You can choose between .exe file and .7z package for more experienced user.
Download via GoogleDrive
Select full version (CMP_v1.x.7z) or update package (CMPupdate_v1.x-1.y.7z) if you have a previous version installed.

Older solutions

1) ServerList.bin

Download and copy the file into your Profiles folder (in common: "C:\Program Files (x86)\Illusion Softworks\Hidden & Dangerous 2\PlayersProfiles")
Make sure this file is write protected.
Start Hidden & Dangerous 2 and have a look on your Favourites list. All servers we are aware of should be displayed there now. We try to keep this file up-to-date as best as we can.
If you are hosting a server and it's not on the list, please let us know server IP and Port and we update the file as soon as possible.
Our list include =RpR= servers only! You can backup your older Favorites list before replacing with ours.
ServerList.bin (last update 20-07-2017)

2) HD2 Connector

On our website you can join servers directly by one mouseclick, therefore you have to install HD2 Connector by Will Waywell.
Available servers are listed here.
If you want to link to an server on your own site you have to use the following link code: hd2c:
hd2c:IP:Port, e.g
<a href="hd2c:">Join server</a>

3) Manually

Of course you can assemble your own Favourites List by entering known IPs an ports.

If they used a loaf instead of a ball, I'm pretty sure he'd never lose it forward or allow the other team to steal it.

Btw, I found out how the Norway mission was inspired. Partly from Operation Frankton and also those attempts to sink the Tirpitz in the Norwegian fjord. In the movie Above us the Waves(1955) it shows how they actually lost the 2 mini subs that were attached to the fishing boat :rofl: So our Norway mission was real, but a failed attempt.
