#1: Bird Hunter 2003? Author: jummpy123 PostPosted: Mon Jun 16, 2014 6:12 pm
Hello fellow e-hunters! I was wondering a few things about the game Bird Hunter 2003.

1. If there are so many maps for Trophy Hunter 2003, where are all the maps for bird hunter?

2. Is there even a map editor for BH2003?

3. Does anyone have any advice for upland hunting? Both finding them and dog strategies? I have a really hard time finding birds, and am not quite sure how to use a dog to flush effectively, and which dog to use.

Thanks for the help and happy hunts!

I dont think hagadoo has ever had any resources for the bird hunter series.
There must be an editor for people to have made custom maps for it.

If you are still a fan of bird hunter 2003 and want some resources, try this site.
Not just maps but expansions and patches as well.

I think the editor is among the game files in the game itself somewhere.
Something like

C: drive... Program files 86... bird hunter game files.. bin .. serious editor. (and also serious ska studio)

There should also be a printable copy of the manual in the game files somewhere, with keyboard controls and instructions for using and training the dog.

Unfortunately my copy of the game is in storage at the moment waiting for my move to my new flat, so I cant explore the exact file path for you.

Like "DantheManBoone" wrote..........Manetta is the resource....You have to follow all download instructions and put in place all maps custom maps in order for correct running of the game.      Most custom maps that were made have more than enough birds to get them.  Read the dog files to use the correct dog for hunting.   You can even edit your own birds once you understand how it is done....        I Played the game a few years ago and made a map to hunt all the bird types, and even updated the game to my liking.  The editor is not one of the simplest to use and does not like Windows XP & later Windows operating systems.  So unless your willing to learn I recommend that you get all the uploads for which it updates the maps from Manetta and you will have more success hunting and finding birds then just the "stock Bird Hunter Maps" which can be tedious until you learn how to play the game correctly.   I even put deer into the map I made but they work like the other small game that come with BH2003, from DH2003. Don't ask me how because I have forgotten what and how I did it and would have to review the files myself to explain it which at this time I am not inclined to do.  So good luck bird Hunting. 1 of the best games ever made.

Unfortunately after trying multiple times and following the instructions to the point, my game still crashes with that huge patch thing they ave (european maps and all that other stuff).

Install bird hunter,  install bird hunter patch.   install manetta EXPANSION files in order of downloads from site.   Make sure to install these files alongside where you installed bird hunter 2003 just inside of infogrames file, not past or it will not work as it will not read the directories correctly.     There is a note inside of most of the files of manetta that tell you this, and read the notes inside of all files to install them correctly also, If it is not an expansion file you have to copy & paste over the old files inside of bird hunter 2003 .  Because a lot of the files were updated again.            Good luck this time.

Local disk (C) > Program Files > Infogrames > BH2003 Expansion Pack v1.0
                                                                    Bird Hunter 2003
                                                                    Expansion Pack v1.1
                                                                    Expansion Pack v1.3
                                                                    Missed Files

If someone could on this topic how can install the patches they are in WinPatch and it gives me errors every time I use a winpatch.Is there a way around that?

make sure to install bh2003 disc & 1.22patch here c:/program files/infogrames
The Expansion Packs were programed for auto directory there just inside the infogrames folder, alongside the birdhunter 2003 folder.
that's where they will work right.
They never worked for me either if I tried a different directory.
Look at the entry above I made in this post. -> General Talk
