Microsoft will be forcing folks to migrate to Windows 11 soon.  Has anyone installed and tested FH2 in the Windows 11 environment?  Thanks.

Full audio book can be found below on YouTube.  I've read it.  It's an excellent book.  I truly believe that it is  the best personal account of a soldier's, or in the case a marine's, experiences in combat.  Gritty.

If you want to read it and cannot find it at your local library, Amazon has it.

General Discussion / Admin Commands - Question
« on: 14-08-2021, 02:08:24 »
Earlier this evening when we were playing Mersa Matruh, a guy w/o a nick showed up and was using an aimbot. It was frustrating for all involved.  After being banned, he showed back up.

I was reviewing the commands here:  http://planetbattlefield.gamespy.com/View1045.html?view=GameInfo.Detail&id=77&game=3

In particular, I was looking at these commands:

admin.addAddressToBanList [IP address] [timeout] - Enter the IP number you want to ban.

admin.addKeyToBanList [CD key hash] [timeout] - Enter the CD key hash you want to ban.

I was told that they couldn't ban by IP address.  Can someone explain that one to me?  Just curious.  Based on the admin commands for BF2 it appears that one could do so.

Thanks.

Bug Reporting / Weird End of Game Message
« on: 23-04-2021, 01:04:05 »
Earlier today I logged into the PlayFH2 server.  It was one of the Finnish Maps.  The map changed right after I connected.  When it switched instead of saying "Best Russian Squad" it displayed "Best Chinese Squad".  It didn't display any information in the other areas of the page as it normally would.

This seems like very odd behavior.  I asked about it in game.  No one else noticed that.  I tried to get a screen cap, but before I could press <Fn><Print Screen> that screen was replaced by the next one in the end of map /  beginning of a new map sequence.

Any insight on this would be appreciated.

Anyone else seeing this today?  FH2 won't connect to the gamespy server on the WaW Server.  Consequently I cannot play.

Clicking on Servers from the launcher shows all of them empty.

Is it just me, or does this voice sound like a familiar one on in game VOIP and TeamSpeak?

General Discussion / Fall Gelb

I'm very excited about the new Char B1 tank model.  Are you guys working on French infantry skins as well, and if so can we anticipate any Fall Gelb battle maps soon?

FH2 Help / Support / FH2 Launcher and Release 2.56

Will the current FH2 launcher update our current version to 2.56 or will we need to use a different methodology?  Thanks.

General Discussion / Weird Update Message Seen
« on: 16-06-2019, 21:06:41 »
I was playing earlier today with my old laptop and I saw a message "new 3.4.666 version of Forgotten Hope 2 is available.  Do you want to update?"  I select NO and proceeded to play.  Upon exiting the game, I decided to test this by launching it again.  Same message popped up.

(1)  Has anyone else seen this?
(2)  If this is not a known bug / issue of some sort, do you think my FH2 Loader has somehow been compromised?  I plan to run a full scan with anti-virus, anti-malware, etc.

General Discussion / CMP Map Question
« on: 08-01-2019, 17:01:48 »
Are there any plans to update the CMP Map Pack so that it will work with the current version of FH2, or will it already work with it?  Just curious because I've not see any of the maps in rotation on the 762 server lately.  I miss the Pacific maps with ships.  :(

when I tried to launch FH2 earlier, it refused my connection.  I went into the launcher, showed my user password.  Noted it was correct.  Then when I tried to launch I saw this:

Connecting to GameSpy Server.
An error occurred while verifying "pvtgmerpyleusmc" GameSpy account:

Couldn't connect to bfewaw.com server.    <-- This seems really odd.  What does the bfewaw.com server have to do with FH2 authentication?

I didn't think FH2 still relied on GameSpy.  Why am I seeing this, and why can I no longer play?  Any ideas / assistance would be appreciated.  No internet issues.  Nothing seen from Windows firewall about application blocked.

FH2 Help / Support / Windows 10
« on: 02-06-2015, 00:06:52 »
I'm guessing that most folks who are running Windows 7 have noticed an icon on the start bar for the free Windows 10 upgrade.  Has anyone upgraded yet, and if so are they able to run FH2?

Thanks.

Last night I ran a virus scan on my machine using McAfee, and it flagged FH2_Toolbox.exe and the 2nd part of the downloaded install executable that was part of the Forgotten_Hope2_v2.2.zip file as containing Trojan Generic!Artemis.

McAfee also removed a registry entry for FH2.

I downloaded the 2.2 update using mu Torrent shortly after it's release. 

Questions:

(1)  Has anyone else seen this with McAfee or some other virus protection like Avast or Trend?

(2)  Is this an erroneous recognition on the part of McAfee, much like one that would previously occur with an older version of AVG where it would quarantine - I think it was the game spy browser portion - of the original BF1942 and make it unplayable.

(3)  Is this an actual Trojan infection that has been noted by others here, and if so, where can I find a clean copy of the FH2.2 client?  My gut feeling after having researched Generic!Artemis is that it's a browser hijacker and I've experienced none of this.  That said, it's possible that it was deployed in such a way as part of it's payload may not have installed and worked as it should've.

Thanks guys.  I really appreciate the assistance.
