HU needs Desert Siege and Island Thunder patched to 1.4 to work. Look in the HU folder to see if it has a file named ModsCont.txt.
It needs that file to appear in the list when activating HU.

Do I install the patch the same way I installed the mods? put them in the mods folder? I am completely new to PC's Sorry. Thanks again.

I wet ahead and tried to unzip patch 1.4 and it told me I needed 1.3 first. Then when I tried to unzip them both it says I needed Ghost Recon itself. Which... i have . But on Steam.

2. HU and the compatibility mods HU - Missing Desert Siege,  HU - Missing Island Thunder come as files that need to be extracted with the 7Zip program, Do you know how to unpack these file?     Putting HU.7zip in the mod folder will not work.
7Zip download link: https://www.7-zip.org/download.html
It will be the first or second one in the list depending on if your Win 10 version is 32 bit or 64 bit. The files are .exe(executable) so after downloading double click on the .exe file and it will install.

You need to put the "Heroes Unleashed" folder, the "Mp1" folder (Desert Siege), and the "Mp2" folder (Island Thunder) in the game's "Mods" folder. For a Steam installation, that should be found here:


C:\Steam\SteamApps\Common\Ghost Recon\Mods

Then start the game and activate all three in the options menu. The correct sequence is Desert Siege > Island Thunder > Heroes Unleashed (from top to bottom).

If you only have the original installers for Desert Siege and Island Thunder, they probably won't work with the Steam release of Ghost Recon. The expansions would also need to be updated (IIRC, the final Ghost Recon 1.4 patch also changed some content in the Desert Siege / Mp1 folder). Would likely be easiest to just get the expansions from Steam, too.

Hello.... GR freezes up when I attempt to play it after adding the HU mod.  I have all 3 required games purchased via Steam.  Version is v1.4.  I had no issues downloading the HU content using 7-zip.  'modscont' folder is present. The HU folder was then added to my PC's 'Steam/SteamApps/common/Ghost Recon/Mods' folder.  The other 3 games also reside there.  I opened Steam and then selected 'Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon' from my library. (Desert Seige & Island Thunder also appear there as options.)  Once GR opened I went to Options/Mods.  I then deactivated DS & IT.  I then, in order, re-activated DS, IT & activated HU.  When I go to Campaigns and attempted to play any operation, the game freezes.  When I remove or deactivate HU, all games play properly.  Any recommendations or comments are greatly appreciated!  Steve

I am operating:

Intel Core i5-3570K CPU @ 3.8Ghz

RAM: 16 GB

OS: 64 bit

Windows 10 Home

I figured it out.  I see that I that GR gaming selection should default to HU version.  Works great!!  To ply other original versions simply de-activate HU in MODS.

Looks awesome!!!!

Thanks a lot for all of your help recently. I was able to get someone in Germany to help me! Probably Dieter Munz.

 

Anyways it's really awesome I'm having fun I'm learning how to install the add-ons. I just can't understand exactly how the SP kits work you know the ones for SAS Delta Force seal team and I think possibly spetsnaz. I added all of them to the active list and maybe that's why I can't see the difference in any of them .if you could maybe give me a little bit of insight on how the add-ons work and which ones you enjoy the most that would be cool. I added the compass type B .

Good to hear you have it working.

In the main folder of HU there is a file called "OPERATORS MANUAL.HTML"
Everything someone would want to know about HU is in there.
It has a extensive table of contents that will aid in navigation.
Also the search function "Ctrl + f" works in this document.
It is a regular book.

So I'm realizing that this game even as awesome as it is alone with the HU mod that it could be better with some other mods. Does anybody have any suggestions (of existing mods) that can make this game better? There's some weapons that I would like to have suppressors that don't have suppressors. I think for the sake of realism it was a good idea to not allow a red dot or holographic sights to actually zoom in all the way, however being that we are not in a real environment in a game it's not very realistic to just aim a crosshair at a target across the map neither is it very easy (making something harder doesn't make it more real). I wish that red dot or holographic sights or those that aren't an ACOG would at least offer a little bit of zoom because the human eye knows how to focus on a target in real life. For some reason I feel like there's already an add-on that exist for this. That is one of the few things that I would have kept from the original game but just minimized it instead of allowing an M4 with iron sights to zoom in half way it would only zoom in a quarter of the way. Also whenever my guys are telling me they've been spotted or somebody is wounded or they're taking fire or absolutely anything, in real life you would know what teamates are speaking to you. Heroes Unleashed does not show at all who is telling you they're under fire or who is telling you that they've arrived to their destination or who is telling you that they just confirmed a kill. Please, if you have any leads on mods that can bring this these elements back to the gameplay I would appreciate it. Thanks a lot.

 

By the way, if there is still somebody who makes mods for this game, is it possible to create a "thermal" vision mod? 

Post Script: In "real life"  I am a small arms expert for the disclaimer. An ACOG site offers 3x-4x zoom. So it should offer some zoom in the game, but a rifle or submachine gun with iron sights or a regular 5 MOA or 3 MOA Red-dot/Holographic sight should also offer a little bit of zoom (in the game) to simulate the focus of the human eye on an object or person. Not to simulate magnification

You can call me Eisenhauer ! And it was a hard piece of work to bring your confused installation back into the loht. But after two hours of communication we made it. And on top of that you are now proud owner of DS+IT full version and not only the dummy files of HU-XTRAS.417025D16DDDED7B1260FC98345EDEC9889A8694
