I was wondering if the constant release of new patches for BF2, pushes back the release time of FH2. I can imagine that you have to study the changes due to the patches(gameplay tweaks, bug fixes, etc.) As of this moment EA is in the beta stage 2 of the 1.4 patch. Yes, it has come to that..:( .. Which patch is FH2 currently on ?

I don't think that mods should realy bother about this patch till it won't be made final. By now they will just keep changing things one per two weeks so I don't think it'll help much the dev teams.

Actually, if there would have been a release of FH² yet, the beta patches would help to release an update for the patched version sooner.

Rightz now, i dont think its gonna delay the developement of FH² as it is still a couple of "moons" away.

Well, they change so many things in a Patch that it could have an effect on how the gameplay in FH2 works out. Not even starting with the technicals changes they make in a patch. If I was making FH i would say bugger to all patches till I was near release time or if there was a change that would effect FH2 in a good way.

well, i dont think patches really matter, as most of the gameplay changes in bf2 patches dont effect FH2. and the ones that do, FH2 can either inventfully code their way around them, or code in features they want themselves instead of waiting for it to happen. i dont think this as a whole will really push back FH2 in any major way.

It's more accurate to say that EA is at this moment nearing the relase of its beta for BF2. It's a prety neat trick when a gaming company can get folks to spend $50 for a game that's not even in beta yet...

the last few patches have been changes/bugfixes in the bf2 content, not bugfixes in the actual engine which might affect us. except the gamemode thing, which would've affected us had we been playtesting

Well it depends on your definition of a "finished" game. Most patches in BF 1942 or BF 2 bring gameplay tweaks or new content(maps) to the game. Like ctz said they didn't change anything in the game engine or game code that needed to be fixed. I think EA listens to much to the whinners in the BF2 community, who scream bloody murder and hell cos they get killed too many times by planes/chopper/tanks/insert random weapon here and they want to see it nerfed. They just dont adept to the situation at hand like the rest of the darwinians like us ;) Except that some people experience Crash to Desktop, the game, technically works fine on most computers. But CTZ said it all, it doesn't affect the release time. I am relieved to hear that.

I wonder if they'll ever make a BF1942....2....? I remember that I emailed DICE Sweden about it once about a year ago and they sort of hinted at the possibility.
