Hello and welcome back to another Forgotten Hope 2 update.
Today we are listing out some of the changes made in 2.54, but before we get to that we have the link to the files needed by server administrators to get their servers set up and running in time for the release. You can find these files here. You do not need to download these files unless you administer a server. The files required to play 2.54 will be available through the Launcher.
The two ISUs shown so far will be replacing a number of instances of the SU-152 throughout the mod, principally on the later maps to reflect the changing usage as production switched to the newer vehicles.
In addition to this, the new HD fonts shown previously have also been updated to include the console and nametag text. However, the main reason for this update was to allow the inclusion of proper characters for other languages. Starting with version 2.54, both Russian and Swedish are now supported, and we hope to add more in the future. You can change your game's language via the launcher, simply enter the Options page and find the selector on the Gameplay tab.
The aerial objective mode on Ihantala 32 has been replaced with a more conventional push mode layout, and some balance changes have been made to its 64 layer too. Balance changes have also been made to Lenino 64 and Ogledow 64, and singleplayer support has been added to Lenino and Studienka.
The final change is the addition of new player animations for most of our stationary machineguns by the talented McCloskey. He has also provided custom animations for the DShK mounting on the ISU-152.
That's all for today, but be sure to come back Thursday for the release. Until then, feel free to visit our Discord, our public forums, and/or our Twitter and Facebook pages to discuss this update and other news.
