Snipes With Artillery
22nd March 2005
Yeah, I played it for the first time earlier this evening. It was awesome, except for the unfortunate occasions of TKing, as happens when the Germans' and Russians' uniforms look alike, people use enemy kits, people steal enemy tanks, etc. Still, it rocked, especially the maps that were versions of vanilla 42 maps. They just seemed so much better. So, um, yeah. Thanks for the mod, lads!
it is indeed an awesome mod and I hope the devs change the kits so that only the weapons change in FH2 when you pick up a dead enemies kit instead of the weapon and helmet.
I like how there's finally a pacific coast server even if it's 22 players. I was so happy to read a 50 or a little less for my ping instead of 88 or more like on wolf:D. Now all I need is a server in B.C.!

Anyways, welcome to the wonderful world of FH!
I'm glad you finally went for playing FH. Now make sure you also have Official Forgotten Hope 0.7 Fan Map Pack 6, newest and one of highest quality maps in there: http://battlefield2.filefront.com/file/;62701

Impossible. It's teh same as in Bf1942, additional geometries, as in, equipment is maintained through kit code. It would be possible to use no stuff in there at all, and instead merge helmets and backpacks with models, but then say bye to variety as you're limited to two models.
Welcome. Big servers right now seem to be TDP (Home of the Damned Priests), hslan and WOLF. Don't know TDP, but the latter two have pretty good community/forum pages too.
Some things to remember:
-On most maps, regular grunts don't have parachutes unless they're paratroopers (like Market Garden.) You need to pick up a pilot kit, usually located near airfields. -F9 brings up tank gunsights -Shots don't arc nearly as much as in BF1942 -Damage models for tanks are much different than in BF1942 -Most infantry weapons are one shot one kill -Anti-tank rockets have invisible crosshairs despite the iron sights; even if you're pointing at something, you have to judge when the crosshairs are closed -Don't fire the flamethrower from too close -Just because nobody is visible at the goliath desk, doesn't mean nobody's using it. If you can't get in, it's occupied -To launch the Ohka, get in position 5, exit the plane, enter the Ohka, and accelerate by hitting 'fire' -- the idea is to crash it into an enemy ship -If you spawn in the airborne Betty and someone is in the top turret, you will be tk'ed and the pilot will eventually be kicked. Remember that -On push maps (with the numbered flags), you have to take the flags in sequence -Mortar and heavy machine gun kits require you to hit 'fire' to set up the weapon, then 'e' to use it. -The remote bomber kit is used by pointing the binocs at your target and hitting 'fire'. The bomber has limited lateral maneuverability by hitting the yaw keys, and drops bombs with secondary fire -On objective maps (Midway-1942, Soletschnogorsk, Battle of Britain, Bombing the Reich) you have to blow up, respectively protect various targets -The sound & texture pack is really worth getting, as is the Map Pack 6 mentioned above (install map pack first, then sound & texture pack.) There are sticky links at the top of the main FH forums page.
I hope these "tips" give you enough ideas for "ooh ooh ooh I gotta try that!" :-)
SOUND AND TEXTURE PACK SOUND AND TEXTURE PACK
Someone give a link to newest version, along with the hotfix?
Welcome to the wonderful world of Forgotten Hope. I'd highly recommend you practice in Single Player to get used to everything before you team yells at you for losing the King Tiger to a Sherman :) The sound and texture packs are also worth getting. As for servers Hslan is good for Europeans and WOLF is supposed to be the best US server but I can't vouch for it as I never play on it. Just stay clear of thedammedpriests as they modify maps and the serveradmin is a dickhead.
Meh, I'll have to brake the promise of no more poting today. After you get FH 0.7 Realism Texture and Sound Pack along with all the fixes, also make sure you also install the Map Pack 6 fix/update (original pack brings incorrect textures in one map pack map): http://files.filefront.com/Historical_Texture_Pack_for_FH_Fan_Mappack_6_v_1/;5081231;;/fileinfo.html
