Hey, guys! I was just wondering what the activity level is regarding this game. I am picking it back up for the first time in a long while. I have been on the past few nights and there doesn't seem to any people online. If this isn't the most active game, which one is? Also, when I attempted to download the maps for the hunt this month, they don't load in game and telling me that I need to check my log files. However, I downloaded two different maps and they work perfectly fine. Would anyone know why this isn't working? Thanks a lot and I hope to play with some of you!

The gamespy site is no longer working, so trying to connect to public online servers from the game will not get you anywhere.

There is another option available by using the online game server XFire. You will need to sign up to use their servers.

The last option is to run the game as a given IP using your own computer as a server, and advise those who you are playing with your IP and server name.

We have two types of game in the Library.
One is the standard DH2005 maps and the other is the DH2005 hybrid.
To play the DH2005 Hybrid maps you must download and install the DH2005 Hybrid patch, Then you will be able to play both std and hybrid maps.
If you dont have the patch you will get a message .. map not working..  if you try to run a hybrid map..

To get the best out of the game, install the game, then download the 1.2 patch, followed by the Hybrid patch, open them on desktop and install.
Download maps to your desktop, unpack the zip, then place the spk file in the custom levels folder.

links for the patches here

1.2 patch.
Make sure you chose the correct version (IE DH2005 download or retail version )
If you intend to enter our site competition your game must not have any patches other than the 1.2 and Hybrid patch installed

The Hybrid patch is here
The hybrid patch is a large download and may not complete if your connection is slow. If that happens you will get a message telling you the download is corrupt when you try to open the zip.
You can get it from my Google drive if the site download gives you grief.
Lastly, if you intend to make your own maps you will need to download and install the map editor.

Finally, to make sure you game runs on your operating system....... If you are using Vista, Win 7,, or Win 8
Right click on the start icon on the desktop and select ... run as Administrator.
Then right click the icon again and select ... troubleshoot compatibility.

Hope this helps.
