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.

Hello

I think I was a little bit unclear in my last comment and didnt get the context, so I wrote this little comment to clear most questions.


Revive was a chance to try out FH2 without the long way of getting an used copy of bf2 from ebay, (only) for a mod, you don't even know if its good or not.

Would you guys buy a dying game from ebay, only for a modification?
Before i got BF2 from Revive, I didn't even thought about it. I mean, I played FH1 ALOT, the best experience I ever had with a game. I also played Battlegroup42. But when gamespy was shut down, I saw Bf1942 going down.

Yes, it was possible to play mp after some unofficial patches, but the majority of players were gone, and now its mostly dead. (Sadly)
I played FH1 together with a friend. I showed him this modification (FH1) and we loved it.
When I got BF2 from revive (only for FH2) I was totally happy with it.
I told my friend (sadly a little bit too late), that the FH devs made a following modification called FH2. This was 2 weeks after Revive closed doors.

Now he is unsure,about buying a dead multiplayer game, to play
a follow-up mod (FH2) of a mod (FH1), he loved so much, that is filled with people on weekends. The only thing that keeps him thinking about getting it, are the great memories on FH1.

Now I ask you: Who will buy bf2 without those memories? A game (and a mod) needs a living community and also must be playable for everyone who want to try it out.
With Revive, the possibility for potential new players to do came, but is gone now. Revive was a living community with a living support to receive a (yet) living game.
BF2 had a revive, but look at BF1942 (They hadn't one). When I played FH1 the last time there were more players playing on their server (FH1) , than we have now on the FH2 servers. But take a look to BF1942 and the FH1 servers now. No oneis on the regular servers and so on the FH1 servers anymore.

It didn't help to have the possibility to play (with unofficial patches).
BF1942 wasn't purchasable anymore. And now Bf42 and FH1 mod are mostly death.
BF2 had luck, because the "revive guys" took care of it and offered bf2 for free.(It wasn't purchasable at this time anymore). And BF2 got many new players from than on.
I think there were also many new players for FH2, like myself.
But now BF2 follows BF1942 by being unable go get.

FH2 should be compatible with Project Reality, because
at least you can get it (and its based on BF2).
ALSO we need to actively seek for new players since its a pain to play, on weekends often without even one full server .
OR playing the CMP with 30 people. We really need more players. Without them it doesn't make fun.
HOW TO PLAY A REALISTIC WARGAME WITH AN ENEMY TEAM, THAT HAVE MORE TANKS THAN SOLDIERS?

Yes we OFTEN get a full server ON WEEKENDS BUT THIS ISNT ENOUGH!
Yes we SOMETIMES get 70 people on the server IN THE EVENING.
Time will come and we only can get a realistic fight experience on weekends, because there are only 45 people on the server in a week. I don't speak from today or tomorrow, but what is after that?
THERE WILL ALWAYS BE FH2 PLAYERS BUT IS IT FUN TO PLAY EPPELDORF OR OMAHA WITH ONLY 45 PLAYERS?
WE HAVE TO PREVENT THIS!

WE ARE A GREAT COMMUNITY BUT WE ARENT MANY. AND WE CANT AFFORD TO LOOSE EVEN ONE PERSON. WE REALLY NEED SOME MORE PLAYERS.
THE (FH) ARMY WANTS YOU! (And we need you)
(This is for you, who ever reads this)

For the playercount we need to work together as a community. I would love to see a "REVIVE FH" action made by the Devs on ther website. Maybe something with leaderboards (who brings the most new players to the game).
…Just an idea….
But something has to be done.

For this "REVIVE FH2 PLAYERCOUNT", a FH2 standalone would be great. I understand the devs don't want to, because of possible legal problems.

BUT THAN PLEASE MAKE IT COMPARTIBLE TO PROJECT REALITY, SO THERE IS AT LEAST ONE REAL WAY TO GET FH2 WORKING FOR EVERYONE who is interested.

And for the playercount, TIME (and resulting playercount losses) IS AN UNBEATABLE ENEMY but we can keep him away for quite some time, like Project Revive did.
But we onlycan get this if EVERYONE tells ANYONE about this game
AND if EVERYONE CAN GET IT TO WORK EASYLY.

Now that was a lot of text, but thats what I think.
Im sorry about any spelling mistakes.
If you think the same way, please comment it down here, if you are not, please also reply and post your concerns. I will try to answer it all, sooner or later.

Now I play a round FH2 :D
See you on the battlefield!

Regards
MRTyde

I left FH2 after more than 500 hours played. Why? Because after all these years of development devs did nothing to prevent using soundtweak which completely turn off supression blur. Thats BS. In this low TTK designed game no supression effects its a huge advantage. And also it ruins gameplay for all. And there are many soundtweakers on 762 servers, thats obvious if you look some of the videos on YT made by these players (like 0rnstein for example).
And no one give a damn about them. Mockery. Sorry for whining. GL to you sir.

Can't seem to join any servers, the game just closes whenever I click "join server". No error messages or anything, tried launching it in windowed mode and everything else and still nothing.

Does the singleplayer work? If yes, you might have a missing registry key. The game crashes than only, when trying to join a multiplayer server. This often happens when you have bf2 from an usb drive or after taking a secure copy of the game (bc of modding failures or so).
In this case, a solution could be, to reinstall bf2(if possible). (In cases like this, it would be easyer if FH2 would be compartible with Project Reality).

I hope it was helpful. If there are more questions, feel free to ask anything.

Maybe the server you try access run a custom map.(Is it the 762 server ?)
I advise you to download their cmp launcher:

Hey guys,
are there any plans for FH2 since Project Revive has been shut down?

And another question:
Will there be any updates in the near future?

Wish everyone a nice day.:)

Also, if there are concerns about a FH2 standalone, you might make it compatible with Project Reality Standalone. I think this the best thing to do since Revive is down. (Also you dont have the risks of going standalone yourself). It dont need to be a FH standalone but there must be other ways of getting it to run, than buying BF2 from ebay.

And the playercount problem could be solved, when we (the 100 guys on the server) tell some friends and contacts about it and convince them to try it out.
And this would be way easyer with project reality compatibility.
What do you think?

MRTyde

See you on the battlefield!

What are you even talking about lmfao? FH2 has been on their own master server for a while now. They are completely separate from Revive, and have never operated under their servers. All you need is a version of BF2, and their mod. Their launcher takes care of everything else. Even updates for the mod.

Since it's a mod, i tested few days ago, and since it's not as popular than vanilla, better to try the week end, i'm sure there is always at least one full epic server in EU/US sides...

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.
