Hi, i'm new to the forums. I'm having trouble running FH2, Whenever i click the icon to run the game, it gives me a screen saying "You must run FH2.exe, not BF2.exe, please update your shortcuts!". So i clicked the appropirate icon for FH2, but it still did not work, same screen. Then i went into c/programfiles/EAGAMES/Battlefield 2 and i clicked the FH2 file there, But the same screen came up again. Hopefully it's not just me getting this unusual glitch, I really want to play Forgotten hope 2 :(

I have this problem too. What OS do you use, I have XPx64. Also, FH2 Tools seems to become a background window in function (i.e. can't operate any functions but task mgr doesn't say it's "Not Responding"), but not in appearance for me, if that makes sense.

Your shortcut is not setup like this? (modified mine to look like yours, the +restart will stop the intro movie from playing)

Target: "C:\Program Files\EA GAMES\Battlefield 2\FH2.exe" +restart

Start in: "C:\Program Files\EA GAMES\Battlefield 2"

my shortcut is:

"C:\Program Files\EA GAMES\Battlefield 2\FH2.exe"

start in: "C:\Program Files\EA GAMES\Battlefield 2"

I did not change anything.

But even if I start FH2 by doubleclicking on the exe in the bf2 directory the problem occurs.

You are my hero.:bows: The second i did that now i can go into the FH2 main menu, i have not tryed to play a game yet, so hopefully nothing will go wrong, but i had to take time to thank you :D For everybody whos confused at what to do, heres what i did: Right click the forgotten hope 2 launch icon.

Select properties. Where it says "target", type +restart at the end so it looks exactly like this, or just copy and paste this. "C:\Program Files\EA GAMES\Battlefield 2\FH2.exe" +restart Then run the game.

Guys, I found the solution (at least for vista it seems..)

Go into your bf2 directory, right click on fh2.exe, go to properties, mark the box "run as admin"

hope it works for you. see you on the servers..

Heh seems to me a problem with loading the FH intro movie file when running Vista...

Ah wel with +restart you boot into the menu directly. Good thing this worked though :P
