I gave up playing bf online ever since the new patch was published. With my crappy 56k modem, i was kicked within a few mins everytime i joined a server. I wonder why..:rolleyes: Dowloading FH got me interested again, because most of the maps don't have bot-support. Well, as the title suggested, i was wondering if there are any friendly servers for me to join somewhere? Better still if there are some that have mostly forum members playing.:cool:

Maybe you are lucky on smaller servers. But on all the larger servers (where a lot of the people here play) will kick you automatically if you'r ping is too high (=your connection too slow).
you can always dl the FHX wich give bot support for some maps ..
We have our auto-kick ping set to 300, so if it's less than that, you're all set to play on our server.
You could also take a look at the FHX-mod. It's an extension for Forgotte Hope, that lets you play singeplayer with bot-support (on some maps) You can find a thread in this particular part of the forum about it :)
I've noticed that autokick-feature, yes..:( And play the FHX all the time, since i have two good comps in a network, every time a friend drops by we play FHX. But thats not every day.. Murgatroyd, could you give me info on your server? I'd like to try.. Sometimes my ping is over 300 and sometimes lower, it depends on pure luck.:D
I got a 64k hook-up and I don't have any problem playing online, I usually play on nagnags which has 56 slots and my ping is usually somewhere between 60 and 90 depending on which level is played, on Wolf I got a ping about 170. When it came to vanilla BF my pings were rarely more than 30 even if it was a 64 slot server, well whatever my point is just go ahead and try a couple of servers I'm sure you'll find 2 out of three to be playable.
Well, it doesn't hurt to try. I do have some bad experiences, but i'll try anyway.. Thanks, mate!:cool:
I don't have any serverside problems playing on Wolf over a 56k dialup. I *do* have problems with losing large strings of packets occassionally, but that has very little to do with FH.

Just noticed you were from or in Finland. Nagnags is a swedish server so there shouldn't be a problem if you try on that one. I stay in Norway and that one works just fine for me, forgot to say the first half minute on virtually any server is quite laggy for me, but after that its supersmooth. Nagnags is a really good server, good admins and good competition.
