Thought I'd post this here to spread the word.

Turns out this Chinese game company has stolen content from a whole bunch of other games (FH, FH2, DoD:S, BF1942, BF2, etc.) and crammed it into their own game and are now selling it as "the most realistic MMOFPS ever".

More info and evidence: Forgotten Hope vs. Army Rage

Discussion on the matter: Call To Arms

A bunch of gameplay videos: army rage - YouTube

My favorite example of stolen textures is this old FH1 one that still has ArminAce's name on it:

Spoiler: Show

Note the date :rolleyes:

If you care to comment on their videos, remember to keep it civil.

I used to play FH a good bit, so I do actually remember those textures.

I wonder how long it will take EA's lawyers to come calling for them....

That sucks. Probably not easy to prosecute a small Chinese company, especially if you are a mod team without the resources to go after them.

But if they market it in Europe I'd still try some sort of cease and desist order - in Germany it is common for companies to send these to people who use pictures from their website without permission.

to be fair, the M1 Garand DOES have a bolt, and the bolt DOES drive an action that results in a bullet being fired...

I also noticed that they stole the Springfield gun shot from CoD 2.
