The exe can be opened with winrar . But I understand some might not have that installed.

I think game could do with more easter egg pick up kits like the winchester. Not unrelaistic for this to happen in ww2.

I was thinking about this last night but not to the same degree...i.e. more subtle.

for example

Beyond a certain rank one should get

1 extra smoke for Squad leaders. (but only two can be live at any one time, as it currently is)

Extra clip of pistol ammo for SL/s or other kits with pistols.

1 extra mine for Engineers. (but only on larger/african maps. 5 isnt enough on sidi rezgh for e.g, desert maps have less statics overall and placing mines seems always like a waste of time. It is hardly rewarding waiting a 40mins only for a tank to drive thru your minefield because your 5 mines are 10 in-game meters apart.)

Binocs for AT. (perhaps with ability to place arty markers removed).

Small things that only add a little bit more weight to a ww2 typical loadout.

While this would make 'deployed' loadouts not exactly historically accurate, whats not to say a hypothetical soldier would not make use of things found on the field? Soldiers would definately grab a pair of binocs from an enemy combatant in ww2, it's not unrealistic. A nice touch would be make the binocs at spawn, that of the opposing team.   ;D

seems like a good suggestion with a an easy fix.

Hi where can obtain the zip file for latest release? updater doesnt work on my OS. mentioned mentioned a zip file when I was playing last night


FH2 Help / Support / [File] Unofficial 2.58 Patcher
« on: 07-09-2021, 04:09:43 »
Hi all

Here is a concise as possible 2.57 > 2.58 updater.
Should anyone have issues with integrated torrent downloadedr in fh2, they may use this instead.

The Patch consists of a simple .cmd script inside a Self extracting WinRAR archive;
it detects users existing fh2 installtion directory and stores this as variable which is then used in the copying process. This is done because the program directory/path can vary across (i.e. XP, or 32 vs 64bit) systems, or if user chose an alternate directory upon initial installation.
Then, the 63 new files are copied into this directory. Folder structure is retained.

There is a txt file inside the archive which lists the updated files also.

Unofficial 2.58 Patch (186 mb) - Onedrive

Unofficial 2.58 Patch (186 mb) - Google Drive

feedback welcome

for some reason the mortar deflection adjustement moves up and down alot since 2.58
other players confirmed this (and on two seperate maps).

is this part of the patch?

download it inside a proper location, then it will weight only few Mb.

Do you mean the fh2 directory? use torrent program to download 'into' fh2 directory?

I use utorrent. Will it automatically detect newer files?


Is this a patch or what? The original 2.57 iso is 8.07 whereas this 2.58 is around 6.91Gb.

Wouldnt it of been wiser to issue a small patch alone for just two changes?

This problem surely will limit the number of new players because 32bit is still relatively popular today. I think its a major flaw of 2.56...
Do you use XP by any chance? I discovered the cause of the problem, it was the newest Inno Setup version I used to compile the standalone installer (6.x), because as it turned out, XP support was deprecated with its release. I did a fresh Windows reinstall some time ago and had to install Inno from scratch as well, but didn't pay attention to the deprecation notice. Now I'll have to recompile the installer using old version, and I bring apologies on my end for that.

Hi do you have an updated 2.56 updated ISO there (or indeed 2.57)?

Do you have a copy of fh2_setup.exe from 2.55? Maybe I can replace 2.55 fh2_setup.exe onto 2.56 iso (after extraction of ISO to another folder).
I doubt there is one. I only ever used FH2 Launcher to update.

Nevermind I've since downloaded 2.55 ISO again and have the (working) fh2_setup.exe.
I copied it and  overwrite fh2_setup.exe on 2.56 ISO with 2.55 version but this did not fix 2.56 standalone install. Therefore, currently the only way for 32bit users to install 2.56 is to download 2.55 and update via launcher updater. (but 2.55 links are hard to find I had to do extensive google search to find it again).

So can any devs confirm whether 2.56 "full" .iso will be revised?
This problem surely will limit the number of new players because 32bit is still relatively popular today. I think its a major flaw of 2.56...

Edit I installed 2.55 and then the pre-release in that order and it now works. 2.56 needs revision though.

Thanks jan.

I am downloading the pre-release now.

Hi all I am new

I want to start off my forum contribution by recommending one of my favourite youtube channels which deserves some recognition. I noticed alot of players in-game asking questions in all chat about finlands role in WW2 when the two new maps where being played. Well, Interestingly, a video covering Tali-Ihantala was uploaded just today to this channel! A few days prior to 2.56 release, another video explaining the continuation war (finlands role in ww2) was also uploaded, which, when given the nature of the additions in 2.56 update, is quite the coinicidence.
Anyway the channel is called ' TIK ' and the depth of his videos are highly commendable..
Finland's Continuation War in a Nutshell video:
Tali-Ihantala video:

Anyone here also a fan of this channel?

Perhaps FH2 could do a feature/spot with the producer to promote FH2 and potentially boost player base... I feel FH2 is perfect match given its specialism in historically accurate depictions of the war.

Anyway interesting coincidence I wanted to share. :) i also would like to thank devs for 2.56 also, really enjoyed it when I played the other night. I am new to FH2 and only started to play for first time few weeks ago, then 2.56 was announced after from what I read to be a 2years haitus (since last update).
really perfect timing..

Hi I have similar problem but not network related.

tLDR: fh2_setup.exe on the 2.56 ISO does not work on 32bit OS. Can a dev provide a 32bit compatible exe?

long version:
I had 2.55 and used the 'update' feature within the launcher, after a long wait, I was able to play 2.56 multiplayer without issue. Very neat feature actually.

Then I had to delete/re-install game for some other reason but this time decided to download the full 2.56 iso instead, as opposed to using 2.55 ISO and using the launcher updater, however, when i mount the 2.56 ISO I get "is not a valid win32 application" which suggests that fh2_setup.exe on the iso is 64bit only. fh2_setup.exe on the 2.55 ISO worked perfectly fine.

My question is, is there a 2.55 > 2.56 patch? (i.e. the file downloaded by launcher seperately available)?
While I could mount 2.55 again and use the the launcher updater a second time, I actually deleted the 2.55 iso to make room on my HDD + The updater is very slow for me (despite my network being fast) thus a 2.55 > 2.56 patch would be ideal here.

I doubt 2.56 will be recompiled because (only) I insist on using XP 32bit, nevertheless as already said, I have played 2.56 online with XP 32bit via 2.55 via launcher updater route without problem in the past.
