Royal Para Regiment

Play HD2 online again.

GameSpy discontinuate their support for many older games including our beloved Hidden & Dangerous 2. You can read offical statement by GameSpy here.
Meaning it was no longer possible to auto-search online servers by clicking on UPDATE LIST in-game.

Fortunately Qtracker is making server listing work again. Simply follow the instructions below or have a look at following YouTube tutorial created by Lukas.
At the moment QTracker service is does not work. We hope it will return soon or we ca update this page with our own master server. Please use ServerList.bin solution!

Qtracker

All you need to do is re-linking towards Qtracker server. Just edit your Windows hosts file as described below.

If you have not made any changes yet to your hosts file (you would know it..) you may download an already edited hosts file and simply replace yours. Your hosts file is located in
C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc
If done continue with step 3

Download hosts file

DnA (aka Hawk) has made a nice tool which auto-updates your hosts file. Simply download and execute the file, type Y and confirm with enter

Download hosts patcher

Step 1

Open your hosts file with any text editor (right-click, select open and choose e.g Windows Editor) of your choice.
hosts can be found in following directory
C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc

Step 2

Add following lines at the bottom
65.112.87.186	hd2.available.gamespy.com	#hidden and dangerous 2 check
65.112.87.186	hd2.master.gamespy.com		#hidden and dangerous 2 heartbeats
65.112.87.186	hd2.ms14.gamespy.com		#hidden and dangerous 2 server list

Step 3

Run Command Line Interface (simply use Windows program search, keyword:cmd, run as administrator) and enter following code
ipconfig /flushdns
Hereafter enter nbtstat -R and you're done!
Your game should now connect to new Qtracker scripts and UPDATE LIST working. If you are hosting a HD2 server, have a look at Qtracker Your server IP should appear there (Might take some minutes)

Cooperative gamestyle

For coop it is necessary that you have the Add-On Sabre Squadron installed. For custom map modification you need the correlated files.
Easiest way is to download and install the latest CMP version. (Coop Map Package)
You can choose between .exe file and .7z package for more experienced user.
Download via GoogleDrive
Download via Mega
Select full version (CMP_v2.x.7z) or update package (CMPupdate_v1.x-2.y.7z) if you have a previous version installed.

Older solutions

1) ServerList.bin

Download and copy the file into your Profiles folder (in common: "C:\Program Files (x86)\Illusion Softworks\Hidden & Dangerous 2\PlayersProfiles")
Make sure this file is write protected.
Start Hidden & Dangerous 2 and have a look on your Favourites list. All servers we are aware of should be displayed there now. We try to keep this file up-to-date as best as we can.
If you are hosting a server and it's not on the list, please let us know server IP and Port and we update the file as soon as possible.
Our list include =RpR= servers only! You can backup your older Favorites list before replacing with ours.
ServerList.bin (last update 05/09/2021)

2) HD2 Connector

On our website you can join servers directly by one mouseclick, therefore you have to install HD2 Connector by Will Waywell.
Available servers are listed here.
If you want to link to an server on your own site you have to use the following link code: hd2c:79.143.187.92:11001
hd2c:IP:Port, e.g
<a href="hd2c:79.143.187.92:11001">Join server</a>

3) Manually

Of course you can assemble your own Favourites List by entering known IPs an ports.

Here in the south of Spain, each year that passes it is more obvious that we go to a more desert climate, hot during the day and cold at night, and I realize that there is less and less spring and autumn, we go from heat to intense cold .

I haven't experienced below -20 here. Maybe I'll visit you once with -35... I'll bring the wine :snow:

Obviously the winters are still not actually warm in any sense of the word, sub -20C is very common and all, but I haven't seen -35C in quite a while.

I find certain comedy and pride in the fact that northern Finland is known to be brutally cold and that it indeed was a few years ago. In a sense warmer winters are only nicer since you're able to do more, but we have had warmer winters for at least three years in a row now and stupidly you end up missing the cold even though there was never anything good about it :D

I can say that in 30 years of life, weather here has been basically the same. Some years are hotter, some are colder, most are so so. There's always been changes. It depends on the sun. We could manage our garbage better... speaking for my country.

it takes a good portion of patience to see what is developing here. Just to remember, about a year ago, the new LUTSIP editor was presented.
