Forgotten Hope 2 is an award-winning World War II modification for Battlefield 2TM and is based on the original Forgotten Hope, a modification for Battlefield 1942TM, one of the most popular multiplayer games ever. Battlefield 1942TM featured land, sea and air combat in a way never before seen. It was the goal of the development team to maximize the game experience by adding both a realistic and enjoyable gameplay to FH and now to FH2.

With the release of Electronic ArtsTM Battlefield 2TM, the development potential has increased a lot. An all-new game engine and physics system brings the battlefield to life like never before. The new material penetration feature measures weapons ability to fire through barriers based on their composition and players will need to know the difference between concealment and cover in order to survive. Immense, richly detailed environments from city streets to remote forests, brought to you with brilliant graphics are some of the more exciting features of Battlefield 2TM. And we are going to bring all this to the Second World War.

With over 250 new pieces of authentic equipment, with tanks such as the mighty German Tiger tank and the diminutive British Vickers light tank, aircraft from the famed American P-51 Mustang to the antiquated German Stuka dive-bomber, and weapons including the powerful German Panzerfaust and the fearsome American M-1 Garand rifle, Forgotten Hope 2 has a wider scope than any other Second World War First Person Shooter, ever!



Winston Churchill once said "It is a mistake to look too far ahead. Only one link in the chain of destiny can be handled at a time." But we do look far ahead. The end of our road has not changed, only the stops along the way. Forgotten Hope 2 currently concentrates the battles fought between Allied and Axis powers in the North African and Normandy theaters of operation.


You will be given the chance to take part in maybe the most important campaigns of World War II. Fight alongside Rommel's Africa Corps in the harsh climates of the North African desert as you attempt to break through the British lines at El Alamein, or hold off attacking forces at Tunis. Serve next to American forces as you seek to destroy Hitler's Atlantic Wall at the cliffs of Pointe du Hoc, or break out from the Norman countryside in Operation Cobra.



"The battle which is about to begin will be one of the most important battles in history. It will be the turning point of the war." But it will only be the end of the beginning for Forgotten Hope 2. We will be ever expanding the mod to all of the theaters its prequel currently occupies, and more.



Whatever the side you choose you will have an almost endless armory at your disposal. Your weaponry will reach from knives to heavy machine guns to anti-tank rifles. Your equipment will contain everything from the first aid kit to magnetic hollow charges. Your motor pool will offer any type of vehicle, whether you want to drive jeeps, APCs, or tanks, and your airfields will give you the chance to pilot scout planes, fighters, and heavy cargo planes.



Forgotten Hope 2 will also offer different gamemodes for different situations. In addition to the standard conquest maps Battlefield is famous for, you will also need to destroy or defend strategic targets in objective-mode, or take tactical positions in a set order in push mode.



So whether you like house to house fighting in Tunis, tank battles in the African desert or dogfights in skies over northern England, Forgotten Hope 2 will have something for you.

Four Times the Fire

News

Hello and welcome back to another Forgotten Hope 2 update.

Today we have a render of a Soviet anti-aircraft gun, a quadruple mount for the Maxim M1910 machinegun, the M4 ZPU.

M4 ZPU


The ZPU was designed in the early 1930s and was adopted into the role of a light anti-aircraft gun by the Soviet military. It was mounted on the back of trucks trailers, armoured trains and ships. While it soon became apparent that it was lacking in fire power, it was never truly replaced in service during the war.

The 4 Maxims are mounted onto a supporting frame, and are fitted with a hand operated forced cooling system (the tanks for which sit in between the tripod legs). Our ZPU was made by Seth Soldier.


That's all for this week, but be sure to come back next time for another update. Until then, feel free to visit our IRC channel, our public forums, and/or our Twitter and Facebook pages to discuss this update and other news.

Excuse me, maybe I missed something in description (I can hardly speak English :D) I download new version 2.46 part I and II, and launcher 2.46+.
I turn on game, everything goes well, graphic, sounds. But I do not have any Eastern Front maps. I need to install them, or I missing something when I install this mod? I got 1.5 version of BF.

Do you mean eastern front singleplayer COOP map ?
Those haven't bot support as basis
You need to download a pack to get them

You can also check the forum to have more tips about singleplayer

HELP!!! the game always used to work and i can still launch the game through revive launcher, but then multiplayer doesn't work, if I launch it from the Forgotten Hope 2 Launcher, it comes up with an error:
UnhandledSystem.Configuration.ConfigurationErrorsException exception:
Configuration system failed to initialise

To clarify - the mod always used to work, but then it just wouldn't
launch anymore, through the shortcut or launcher and came
up with that error.

a windows 10 update might have messed up the execution of the launcher :(
Maybe try to download the launcher .exe again and try to identify the list of updates that could have impact it (.NET Framwork maybe)

The controls for tank turrets is WAY too 'slippery', too little input and the turret barely moves, too much and you over rotate it. Is there a way to bring them back to BF2 standard?

Edit: I found out you can bind the arrow keys to control the traverse, that seems to have helped quite a bit.

This was implemented because in the past people changed their mouse sensitivity, allowing them to turn turrets extremely quickly. This is the only way to fix that in the BF2 engine.

Not this mod, but BF2 is free these days through battlelog.co. If there ever is an FH3, it would probably be an indie game, but this is a big IF.

Historically correct, crude and with lots of violence, completely realistic, action in the most pure level, what else can be said about it? one of the biggest, and in my opinion, greatest modifications ever done for BF2, brings us the real feeling of the WW2. Epic.
