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.

This update fixes several bugs in the python error reporting code, a tiny bug on the map Seelow Heights and the new deployable weapon markers being visible to the enemy team. There are also some minor optimisations to Sammatus.

One question to Ts4EVER

I ask you bc you are in the developer list and have the best connection to the other developers.
Forgottenhope.warumdarum.de
Please answer it without thinking about legalicy or something like that:

ARE YOU OR OTHER ACTIVE DEVELOPER OF FH2 INTERESTED IN a FH2 STANDALLONE?
Do YOU want it or not?

Im asking in name of everyone, who wants to see a Standallone.
I do this for FH2,its future and the great community of FH2.

I hope to get a detailed answer of you.
Thanks for reading

(If there are some questions of other communitymembers , write it under my comment)

Why do you want an answer from me in particular? I can not speak for myself on this, since this is a decision the whole team has to make.

I only want to know on which side you are.
If you are against a standallone, it would be pointless to ask for it on moddb.
I think you have the best conections to the team, so i asked you. Also it would be interesting if there are other members of the team (no names),who are interested in a standallone.
Its pointless to ask for it this time, if the devteam isn't interested in it.

look, there are soo much people , who ask for it. I think half of them never played fh2 bc they never got the chance.
Its hard to get bf2 after steam dont sell it anymore.
It would be cool if this guys can play this masterpiece with us.

I know its easy to say :"make a standallone", and i also

know there is a lot of work on the way of going Standallone,
but i think this work have to be done, and be independent from bf2.
thanks for answering

" If you are against a standallone, it would be pointless to ask for it on moddb."

Even if I am for it, asking on here is pointless anyway, since it has no influence on our decision.

you are right. i think the time will come for standalone, but now ist too early. there is no special need for that right now, e.g. it has 80 Players on the evening. i would consider making standalone if this number drops under 40.
and another reason why a standalone would be nonesense is, that even the developers Team can't give a clear answer to that question. i think there are split opinions even with the developers.

I think its a good answer for now.
Lets hope it gets clear in the next time.

i dont want standalone, only bcs it would increase the playerbase. fh2 still has Players. if it Shows Gamers are decreasing they should make standalone. and think of the time and hard work they invested already. there is a new update coming out soon, so probably many Gamers will come back to fh2 to test and enjoy it again. and think about the time and work they have to invest to make it standalone.

if u only have dx11 doesn't mean you can run fh2 or bf2
because bf2 require dx9
search for "directx jun2010 redist" on google and install it
it contains dx9 dx10 and dx11

I then suggest that you write a message on the forums:
Fhpubforum.warumdarum.de

Then more people will see your message and hopefully be able to fix the issues. Don't give up just yet.

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.
