FH2 Help / Support / Re: [File] Unofficial 2.58 Patcher
« on: 02-10-2021, 11:10:51 »
I would be satisfied with just a .zip with the files needed without the patcher.
Not sure if other files than the levels folder, game & server .exe is needed. Other files looks the same to me as 2.57.
Anyway good job :-) 

Havent been geeking the game audio for some time, but been using these settings for more than a year. Suits my headphones and ears great     

rem ** Balance between 2d and 3d samples.
sound.setProperty "balance2d3d-default" 0.55
sound.setProperty "balance2d3d-eax" 0.5

rem ** Reverb and obstruction (0.55->1 sound-maxreverb 0.55)
vars.set sound-maxreverb 0.55
vars.set sound-reverb-steepness 0.55
vars.set sound-raylength 17

Wow nice. Cool pics.

Invincible walls on stairs in both stairways/sides of train station. Its possible to prone through

maybe look at "Method 1: Setting a Custom Resolution on an Intel Based Graphics Card"
in this link copy/pasted from the troubleshot guide in the fh2 discord channel

In, sounds.con is missing. Causes too much reverb in ultra high audio settings.

+70 fps looks quite a lot. I wonder if turning Hyperthreading off has some impact on non-gaming use performance

Not much I think, depending on what system runs ofc. Its only some games that benefit like CSGO, bf2 fortnite. If I could I would make a test with 100 players (much lower boost than +70fps in a one player scene) . But I cannot recreate the same scene twice on a full server and no public battlerecorderfile with guided cam. is available   


Did some more testing. Hyper-Threading turned OFF on Intel cpu in Bios gives more power to the engine :-)

Did a very quick test of 2vs1 cpu core

Afaik BF2 is only capable to run on one core.

No. please show some evidence of this. did you test it ? 
FH2 runs much better on at least 2 cores. Maybe its ok with one core when playing small numbers 16-64 players or lowend portato 60Hz 60fps setup that does not stress bf2 engine. BF2 plays on smaller maps and with lower player numbers than FH2
On full 100p server or 254bots server I get instant stutter and lower fps if game only runs on 1core

How to setup Affinities for FH2 + Mouse & GPU

So basicly drivers and other stuff wants to run on the first cpu core (core 0) if possible. The trick is to seperate at least mouse and GPU away to other cores to gain more stable system response time if cpu has enough cores. I havent tried this on a 2core system
You may not experience or feel any difference after doing these suggestions. Maybe more is needed to improve performance or stability. I want to keep things as simple  as pc tweaking is a never ending story:-)

Determine the Number of Cores in Your CPU

HOW TO - Interrupt Affinity Policy Tool (how to set mouse and gpu affinity)

If GPU or USB driver gets updated, affinity tool settings may need to be re-applied
In FR33THY "HOW TO - Interrupt Affinity Policy Tool" youtube video - Process Hacker (great taskmgr alternative) is used to set program affinites.
I think most people maybe just want an easy simple shortcut sollution on desktop.

The easiest way before making shortcut is to alt+tab when gaming/recording and mess around with the affinities. If causing instability then alt+f4 programs and retry

CPU Affinity Shortcut for a Program - Create in Windows

ex Shortcut target for running FH2 on core 2,3 on a 6core 6thread cpu (FH2 located on G drive)

C:\Windows\System32\cmd.exe c/ start "FH2" /affinity C "G:\EA GAMES\Battlefield 2\Forgottenhope2.exe" +restart +menu 1 +fullproc +fullscreen 1 +widescreen 1 +modPath mods/fh2 +playerName XXXXXX +playerPassword XXXXX

6 cores 6 threads /affinity C  = 001100 = core 2,3 (run 2cores No Hyperthread & SMT )
6 cores 12threads /affinity 5  = 000000000101 = core 0,2 (Run on 2cores with Hyperthread & SMT On)
4 cores 4 threads /affinity 3  = 0011 = core 0,1  (run 2cores No Hyperthread & SMT ) (pic. example above)
4 cores 8 threads /affinity 5  = 00000101 = core 0,2 (Run on 2cores with Hyperthread & SMT On)
4 cores 8 threads /affinity 55 = 01010101 = core 0,2,4,6 (Run 4cores Hyperthread & SMT On) 

Some people maybe want to set FH2 to only run on 1core, but Its my experinece that 1core causes ingame stutter. FH2 runs better on 2 cores. Tried on 3diff intel systems.
BF2 engine is old and runs better on real cores, so avoid threaded smt cores. Running game on 2-3 cores should be better ingame experience, but longer mapload time the less cores

If recording gameplay with OBS then try out making affinity shortcut for OBS on other cores than the ones FH2 are using.

Make 2 shortcuts one for FH2 and one for OBS Ex. 6core 6thread system (Nvench Nvidia card) leave cpu0 (for windows background stuff) , FH2 on core 1-2, OBS on core3,4,5

C:\Windows\System32\cmd.exe c/ start "FH2" /affinity 6 "G:\EA GAMES\Battlefield 2\Forgottenhope2.exe" +restart +menu 1 +fullproc +fullscreen 1 +widescreen 1 +modPath mods/fh2 +playerName XXXXXX +playerPassword XXXXX

C:\Windows\System32\cmd.exe /c start "OBS" /affinity 38 "C:\Program Files\obs-studio\bin\64bit\obs64.exe"
If hyperthreaded or smt enabled, maybe try OBS with more threads

My settings may not be good for your system (diff hardware,diff OS etc.), so try out different cores and do some testing :-)

If you want to know more about tweaking/optimizing/debloating windows for gaming I highly recommend FR33THY videos A to Z series


I think I have seen people playing CMP maps on a Chinese server a couple of times lately

Would the devs consider a similar official HUD overhaul in the future?

I'd keep the compass though, it's still useful sometimes...
Yes. HUD overhaul is being considered. Compass in on the bottom of your screen in Ekiso's HUD.

Would it be possible to get rid of the kill information on the top left corner? I don't think it is very useful and it destroys immersion.
The problematic thing is that the text spreads (chat as well) out as if it's a 4:3 screen, just squeezing it more would help a lot.

Its possible to move text box up and out of screen if kill feed is not wanted

Chat/killfeed/ is fixed for 16:9 in the Ekiso Hud mod

I like the Idea of snow maps during x-mas as on 762 a couple of years ago :-)

I think this year so far had most Public Events for a long time..
FH2 game nights
CMP campaigns
Public map test events

maybe not possible to do, but
When dead and watching other players -> key to switch between 1p and 3p view
