Suggestions / HE question
« on: 17-12-2021, 20:12:27 »

Have the developers considered turning down the HE a little? It seems like it is a little OP right now. I was watching a 20mm shooting into the ceiling of a room, killing everyone with splash damage.

It would nice if the Germans could have spawnable AT mine kits so they could do something to set up a defense.

Suggestions / Side stepping with the M1 Garand
« on: 28-03-2020, 18:03:40 »
I've notice that the M1 Garand is impossible to aim while side stepping because it bounces around to the point that the sights are complete out of alignment. However, if you perform the same maneuver with the G43, the sights stay dead nuts center. I find other rifles bounce a little, but still are able to be aim. I'm wondering why the Garand is so different, and whether or not it can be addressed?

General Discussion / Do people still play FH2?

Do people still play FH2? How is the population these days? I have an upgraded computer and was debating re-installing, but the US servers were always empty in the past.

General Discussion / WW2 Online and FH2 KDR
« on: 05-04-2016, 20:04:33 »
Since the Forgotten Hope 2 servers tend to die out around 7:00 PM East Coast time, I’ve started playing WW2 Online in the evenings.  While it is considerably more clunky than FH2 (it is far from its heyday), I have to say that I’ve been enjoying it.  Aside from the fact that the map is massive (1/2 scale of Europe), the game play is completely team objective oriented.  While you do gain rank in the game, they do not track KDR (as far as I know), and the result is refreshing.  Accomplishing objectives is the focus of the team and in game chat is very positive.  The other thing they don’t allow it cross-chat between armies.

I have come to believe that tracking KDRs negatively affect game-play, because it encourages people to focus on themselves rather than the team.  While I try to ignore my KDR, the fact that other people care so much about theirs makes me focus on it more than I would care too.  If I could ask one thing of the 762 server, it would be to stop tracking KDR.

It is obvious that most of us love FH2… probably to the point that we almost play it too much, but sometimes there are things that I find stressful.  What are the top stressors in FH2 for you?
For me, a couple of things come to mind:

    1)   Ping.  I am an American player and my ping on the 762-ranked server is usually around 125.  I find that I usually have to get a half-second jump on a Euro player during a face to face to beat him (assuming neither misses).  I have had many instances when I fire first, but their shots register first.

    2)   Artillery.  While I have become a fan of spotting for Artillery, especially on desert maps where 88’s need to be destroyed from afar, I have also started cringing when shells are screeching in nearby. Artillery in FH2 is brutal, and I’m pretty sure Seelow is causing me to have a little PTSD.

Modding / Statics
« on: 11-03-2016, 18:03:22 »
I am a mechanical engineer and I use programs like Creo and Creo Direct extensively for my job.  I recently  finished my masters and I am looking to get into a new hobby.  Modeling statics looks like a lot of fun. Is there a particular program the DEV's would recommend for modeling statics?

Suggestions / Supercharge 64 player
« on: 09-03-2016, 16:03:33 »
I still have never seen the British come close to winning this map.  After doing so reading, it appears Operation Supercharge started at 1:00 in the morning with infantry clearing a way through the mine fields.  Would it be possible to convert the 64 player version of this map into a night map.  This may increase infantry survivability and give the British more of a chance.

Suggestions / What happened to Aberdeen?
« on: 07-03-2016, 15:03:15 »
I just noticed Aberdeen is no longer listed. Was this map nerfed?

FH2 Help / Support / New computer trouble
« on: 24-02-2016, 22:02:10 »
I just buy a new computer and a new monitor.  The monitor has a max resolution of 1920x1080.  If I play FH2 at this resolution, the menu screen, text, and in game mini map are distorted, but the game itself looks beautiful.  Has anyone had this issue?  Is there a way to clean this up?

1) I see on Pointe du Hoc that the entire left cliff edge is out of bounds.  Is there a reason for this?  It seems like it would be useful to the allies to be able to move along that edge so they aren't bottle necked near the bunker.

2) This is a personal pet peeve of mine, but since in reality it is possible to clear a partially expended M1 Garand clip, how difficult would it be to add this feature?

3) You probably have heard this already, but I think Sammatus is in need of some Russian Artillery.  I don't think the Finnish even feel the pressure on that map.

General Discussion / Future of FH
« on: 26-01-2016, 18:01:06 »

I used to play quite a bit of Forgotten Hope several years ago, and have just started playing Forgotten Hope 2 in earnest.  I was hoping the FH Mod team could provide insight into where they envision FH going in the future.  With EA Games all but abandoning 1942 and BF2, do you have plans to expand to another platform?  You have put so much work into these MODs, so I have to wonder what you are getting out of your effort?
