FH2 Help / Support / FH2 via WINE on Linux
« on: 27-11-2021, 00:11:49 »
I recently got FH2 standalone to run on W@INE for the first time in years.  It works by running wine ForgottenHope2.exe

This loads BF2 first, so when I click the server; it loads FH2.  There is no option for 2160p gaming in the menu this way. 

It doesn't load the launcher either.  Is there a file I can edit to get 2160p?  144hz?

I found FH2Launcher and the program crashes if I try to enter anything into windowed mode.

With the induction of Forgotten French Hope.   I think it would only be appropriate.

French Union Far East Expeditionary Forces and Viet Mihn Communist Revolutionary s

Weapons they had to use:

Note Fighter Bomber attacks.

Bell P-63 King Cobra and later F8F

From WIKIpedia:

French military forces had committed 10,800 troops, together with yet more reinforcements, totalling nearly 16,000 men, to the defense of a monsoon-affected valley surrounded by heavily-wooded hills and high ground that had not been secured. Artillery as well as ten US M24 Chaffee light tanks (each broken down into 180 individual parts, flown into the base, and then re-assembled) and numerous aircraft (attack and supply types) were committed to the garrison. A number of quadruple 0.50 calibre machine guns were present and used in the ground role.[49]This included France's regular troops (notably elite paratrooper units, plus those of the artillery), French Foreign Legionnaires, Algerian and Moroccan tirailleurs (colonial troops from North Africa) and locally-recruited Indochinese (Laotian, Vietnamese and Cambodian) infantry.[50]

In comparison, altogether the Viet Minh had moved up to 50,000 regular troops into the hills surrounding the French-held valley, totalling five divisions, including the 351st Heavy Division, which was an artillery formation equipped with medium artillery, such as the US M101 105mm howitzer, supplied by the neighbouring People's Republic of China (PRC) from captured stocks obtained from defeated Nationalist China as well as US forces in Korea, together with some heavier field-guns as well as anti-aircraft artillery.[7] Various types of artillery and anti-aircraft guns (mainly of Soviet origin), which outnumbered their French counterparts by about four to one,[7] were moved into strategic positions overlooking the valley and the French forces based there. The French garrison came under sporadic direct artillery fire from the Viet Minh for the first time on 31 January 1954 and patrols encountered the Viet Minh troops in all directions around them. The French were completely surrounded.[51]


My understanding was for 2 or 3 months prior the communist slowly surround the dug in French forces in this valley where the French relied on air for supply which didn't deliver enough goods and half the weapons were bonked anyway.  This led to a 2 or 3 month long WW1 style siege war fare.
 

Anyway.  There were some good battles that happened in the area and half the weapons are already in the game.  For a first Indochina war update.

FH2 Help / Support / Crash When I try to join a server
« on: 04-04-2018, 18:04:29 »
Hi all,

So I use to play FH.7 and never had a computer good enough for FH2.  No I have a I5 6500 ge750 16gb ram ddr4; it should be good enough.  I have fresh install of Windows 10 and updated drivers; the works [3.9x].

I get the whole game installed it crashes every time I try to join the server, insta-crash.
I've tried windowed mode, doesn't work.  What can I do?

*I've tried comparability mode for Windows 7 and XP service pack 3 also.  I've tried video settings as high as they can go and as low in 800*600 window mode.

 Seems straight BF2 can not connect; maybe that has something to do with it.

* I found the keys on the interment and it proceeds, the game loads; I just crashes upon clicking on servers.

* Single player dose work

* Firewall on/off doesn't matter.
