Royal Para Regiment

You installed a custom mission and you can't select it from the maplist?
You need to add some code to a file called mpmaplist.txt.
It stores which items, weapons, uniforms are available at the beginning of a mission.

The file can be found in your HD2 main directory

64-bit Windows
C:\\Program Files (x86)\Illusion Softworks\Hidden & Dangerous 2
and for 32-bit Windows
C:\\Program Files\Illusion Softworks\Hidden & Dangerous 2
You can open mpmaplist.txt with any text editor, e.g Windows Editor Windows Editor icon

LAYOUT

 <MAP_LIST>
	 <GAMESTYLE  type="deathmatch">
 		 <MAP  name="Africa1"  dir="Africa1_mp">
			 <ALLOWEDITEMS  version="0.1">
				 <ITEM  item_id="0"  item_num="1"  ammo_num="10"/>

		 </MAP>
		 <MAP>
			...
		 </MAP>
			...
	 </GAMESTYLE>
</MAP_LIST>
Available gamestyle types
  • deathmatch = Deathmatch
  • teamplay = Occupation
  • hd2multiplayer = Objectives
  • cooperative = Cooperation (only if Sabre Squadron is installed)

Inside the custom missions' Readme or, often in a text file called maplist.txt or similar, you find the code to add to your mpmaplist.txt (the code must start with <MAP> and end with </MAP>)

Make sure you add the code after the closing tag of the previous mission and in the right gamestyle section.

If done correctly you should see your mission now inside the in-game maplist.

Saying "sorry" sometimes can prevents wars from starting. Everyone values their emotions when there is absence of love and humor about oneself.

I didn't mean to hurt him but was just curious all these years about his English. Maybe I should remove my post? I apologize Richie if I indeed hurt you.

FishTank is a English movie. There was this white horse looked like in the need of little help from stone to release the chain and the girl pissed on the floor later because of failing to free the horse.
