Hello, and welcome to the BitTorrent pre-release of the Forgotten Hope Fan Mappack #6 for Forgotten Hope for Battlefield 1942™. The file you download with bit torrent will have a password, that will not be revealed until the main release, which is currently scheduled for 1800 GMT on May 19th. The file is "only" 508.726 KB but it won't do you any harm to get started early! Be patient though!, torrents take a while to pick up speed!
For those of you who are not already aware, it BitTorrent is a peer-to peer distribution tool that allows many people to download from each other simultaneously. This means the more people that are connected the faster the potential download speeds. If you are interested, you can read more about it here.
If you do not have a BitTorrent client, or have difficulty connecting, you might want to try Azureus, which is relatively easy to get started with, and has some interesting features. You can get Azureus here.
At this point we would like to thank Warumdarum and Winboard.org for seeding the file. And of course, we would like to thank all the Mappers and Betatesters as well for the excellent job and hard work they did to make the Map Pack possible.
That's all for today, but be sure to keep watch for more goodies in the next few days. Until then, feel free to visit our public forums to discuss this update or complain about how long it is taking.
