Please download all three parts and install them in order.

We´ve decided to also release the BG42 1.4 Battlecraft and Samples files for all BG42 objects to provide community mappers with the needed files to
create maps for the new Battlegroup42 version.

Samples for Battlecraft:

Battlecraft .cfg and .lst files:

To ensure that you´ve downloaded the correct file versions we are posting the MD5 hashes of all mod files.
When you´ve downloaded the files, you can check them with the "md5sum.exe" program.
To use md5sum do the following:

- switch to the dos command prompt
- switch to the folder where you downloaded the mod files to
- copy md5sum.exe into the folder where you downloaded the mod files to
- enter "md5sum BG42_1_4_Part1_of_3.exe" and press enter
- wait
- when the program is finished, compare the shown checksum to the one we´ve posted
- repeat the procedure with each file and compare the checksums

When all checksums are correct you can be sure to have downloaded the right files. If the checksums differ, you either have wrong versions or
corrupted files !
