Hidden & Dangerous 2

2 eventualities
  • You are running a different version of HD2 then the server's host. Make sure you have the latest version 1.12 running.
    HD2 patches (v1.12) via
  • You have not installed the HD2 Add-On Sabre Squadron, therefore you cannot join any co-operative gamestyle servers. Install the Add-On and you're fine.
Somebody is using the same CD-key as you. You can wait until the player leaves server or change your key. Therefore use appropriate tools like key changer, key generato, etc. (via ).
Download this simple and safe PowerShell script to change your Cd-key when needed. Download Script Here
If you have no more lives and you cannot click one of the spawn points on the map, then press ~ key (default console key, you probably need to define it in your HD2 keyboard settings) and then press ESC key. Make sure you have already clicked on one of the available spawn points on the map.
You don't have the mission files installed which do run on server. You either need to download and unpack latest CMP (Coop Map Package) or find and install the missing mission separately.
CMP (via )
You can try the following steps
  1. Execute setup.exe (run as administrator)
  2. Turn full-screen anti-aliasing OFF
  3. Lauch HD2.exe / HD2_SabreSquadron.exe as administrator
Run HD2 setup (setup.exe, in your HD2 main directory) and turn "vertical synchronization" on.
This can have several reasons. Please read the Create Server tutorial carefully first.

If it still does not works see following checklist
  • Have your forwarded the server ports you are using?
  • Does your firewall blocks any HD2 programs?
  • In case you chose the  Qtracker solution, visit  Qtracker HD2 server list. If your server's IP is listed others can actually see and join your server. Please be aware that it can take some minutes until your server gets listed there.
Make sure your game is patched to version 1.12. Gamespy is no longer supporting HD2 as a result server-search is not working anymore. However the community came up with some ways around, therefore please read Play Online tutorial for complete instructions.

You need to pick a higher resolution of your game from Setup.exe. If this doesn't work, you will have to use the scaling option in your video card settings to have HD2 full screened.
However this might distort the screen.
  • Start HD2.
  • Open task manager (Ctrl+Alt+Del -> Task Manager)
  • If you haven't done it already, click "More details" at the bottom left.
  • Click the ">" next to the HD2 process.
  • Right click the expanded process and select Maximize.
  • Note: You have to repeat these steps anytime you start HD2
We suggest to use the dgVoodoo solution also mentioned in this FAQ
The DeLisle is sadly a little bugged. If you are using the iron sights only the first shot hits where you aim to. For further shots you need to aim a little under your actual target
Alternatively you can reload and use "first shot" again or simply use crosshairs (shooting from hip)


Shay has fixed this bug with his new model for De Lisle Commando Carbine. Please download and follow the Read Me.txt file instructions.

Hello :cool:
Here the feast of Saint-Pierre is a patronal feast organized by the fishing corporations located between Menton and Port-Vendres since the Middle Ages. Every year, at the end of June, fishermen honour Saint Peter, the patron saint of fishermen, in order to ask his intercession in order to have fruitful fisheries and to protect themselves against the bad weather and all the disasters associated with fishing.
