I thought i would start a topic on this awesome mod which is still in Development but already in its Version 2.15 (http://forgottenhope.bf1942files.com/main.php?module=downloads)

Forgotten Hope 2 is a World War II modification for Battlefield 2™ by DICE (http://www.dice.se/) and is based on the original Forgotten Hope, a modification for Battlefield 1942™, one of the most popular multiplayer games ever. Battlefield 1942™ 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 the same goes for FH2 in the future.

With over 250 new pieces of authentic equipment, with tanks such as the mighty Russian IS-2 heavy tank and the diminutive Japanese Ha-Go light tank, aircraft from the rugged American P47 Thunderbolt to the antiquated British Fairey Swordfish biplane, warships such as the British Ark Royal aircraft carrier and the German Battleship Tirpitz and weapons including the powerful German Panzerfausts and the fearsome Russian PPSh-41 submachine gun, Forgotten Hope has a wider scope than any other Second World War First Person Shooter, ever.

I'll tell you shortly, installing it. My LG 22" has some built-in 4:3 zoom feature which might help me ...

IP of the server is: 83.98.220.77:16567:29900 =TG= True & Honest Gamers BF2 Server
We have our own dedi box, so can do whatever I want on it.

Not modded yet, streams to psb, pbbans and bustedpunks :wink2:

Just am opening a poll on our site for our members to see which mod they want, Point of Existence 2, Project Reality or Forgotten Hope 2.

If they choose by majority on of the 2 other I'm going to setup a 2nd server :wink2: cause i want a ww2 mod, hihi

The ip above will have the FH2 on it in a while, first need to go through getting vermiliar with the mod before setting it up.

Bf2ccd is a hork and need to be carefull to not ruin the bf2 server files.

Hey ZeRoy... thats just the official game guide, not the game.

I was already going to buy it, because it still costs 20+ here, noticed in the last second. :eek:

Voting's going good, 8 for FH2 and 0 for the others :wink2:
Uploading FH2 now, so should be running later tonight.

Problem for the most members is remembering where they hidden that bf2 disk

Server will be a 32 slots with 32 player maps, as start for testing it.

Ok, so far its not brilliant im afraid ... there was only 2 really active servers when i tested, near full with 64 players each. The game itself was not really playable for me, i adjusted my GFX settings about 10 time to end up on medium but even then it was laggy as hell.... Probably needs some tweaking just dont have the time tonite (i forgot how slow bf2 was to load!)

Otherwise its looking good, the maps are huge and not much cover, just like you would expect in the desert :d -- Weapons looked very accurate too. As there are planes however it seems a few always get them and bomb the hell outta spawn points :whaa1:

Our Club played alot of the BF2 mods & settled on the HardJustice Mod although P.O.E was a very close second with Project Reality in third place. We actually still have our HJ server online.

What did it for us in choosing the HardJustice mod was its balance & excitement, both are still unmatched. These are the guys that brought Co-Op play to BF2 before EA did :D formerly known as the WCCSquad.

As we prefer WW2 gaming we followed both ForgottenHope & Battlegroup Frontlines but were a bit disappointed.

For all out giggles & fun I must recommend the Pirates mod. Hilarity is assured :D

Got to say, FH2 looks nice.
But i'm sure am going to test and compare PoE2, PR and HJ.

For now FH2 is running, going to make profiles tor the other 3, PR hope i can get in since it needs special signup no free downloads anymore.

Are there instructions anywhere on how to load the mod onto your server, which files go in the right place or is it an exe file?

If its an exe file does it allow you to choose the name of the directory or does it go off to try to find it itself?

Also does the forum/wiki have a section which you would recommend I look at to get this type of info?
