Greetings from Sweden to all you Forgotten Hope lovers! Don’t let my post count fool you, I’ve been around here since the old days. I would like to first and foremost bow to the hard working and dedicated staff here at Forgotten Hope. Just the fact that you’ve been around for so long and still keep on producing (ultra) high quality content year after year for us gamers to enjoy make you deserve an orgy of divine blessings. OK, here’s my suggestion; how about 2 versions of Forgotten Hope 2, one version for the realists and one for the arcadists. I’m not suggesting any major changes between the versions but only a few minor tweaks. I realize that the sheer expression of the word arcade around here pushes a lot of people closer to their deathbeds but the truth remains that an overwhelming majority likes to play it the arcade way. I’ve seen a lot of highly talented modders releasing their top notch work only to see their player count dropping day after day because they insisted on sticking to their hardcore, realist fan base. I know you devs are not running for a popularity contest and have your own vision in mind for FH2 which I deeply respect but it would be a tragedy for a game with this kind of potential to exclude a major part of the gaming community. Seeing that BF2 still have a solid player base I can’t even imagine which heights an arcade style FH2 can reach. This is something a lot of gamers are searching and thirsting for. Personally I’m very much looking forward to the release of FH2 and I’m certain I will have a blast playing it for a long time to come but I still hope you devs. give the thought some consideration.
Maybe having some servers settings to adjust realism? i dont know if it can be done, but would eliminate the need of two versions. I think the base of FH 1 was realism with a touch of playability, taking out some of the unrealistically annoying things of BF1942, like ultra slow shells and weapon damage and infantry weapons. If FH2 will be like FH1, it will be quite playable, and will have many players.
It's not going to happen, the developers are not looking to please the arcade masses, nor are they looking to get as many players as possible.
On top of all of this, you cant alter the way tanks and infantry work with just a "few simple tweaks", it would take a alot of work to make it balanced, and the devs want to work on their vision, not a magnet for the bf2 arcade masses.
FH1 was realistic/historically accurate and still had alot of players. FH2 will be the same thing but with even more players probably.
I agree with you guys. I personally prefer realism in front of arcade but on occasions I like to play some brainless arcade gameplay. I was just daydreaming about how FH2 could easily become one of the top most playable online games if it had something for the arcade nuts.
Tas I didn’t suggest to turn the arcade version into a total arcade conversion just perhaps some minor changes like Sadcrow mentioned, weapon damage and free weapons choice for infantry etc. Although it probably would take more then a few tweaks.
very simple, will not hapen, nor remotely happen, this mod prides itself on historical acuracy and realism, and only wants to please people who like realism and historical accuracy, the rest can go play vbf2.
ya,i agree wit the others.this mod shouldnd aim to please every one.look at how many ppl check this forum every day and you can easily see that it already has a great following.thats why most ppl are here.i think this mod will be just as great as the cod series,on realism.and the grf look great too so that will carry this mod verry far!
anthony again with the cod, they will definatly kill you, you beter start running now and get a head start, i cant really explain why, it just comes with being here so long that i know.
To make an alternative arcade version of the mod would take almost so much work like the original one. Obviously we are not interested at all and we prefer to spend our time expanding the mod, WW2 is an endless theme
And FH is a religion, arcade is blasphemy =p
