Damn Jan, you are going to force me into the modern age.   ;D

I'll do it later today.  I'll have to get Discord installed.

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

dont watch the 11st video in that playlist

Come on Choo Choo.  That's the best one, especially with the disco music playing in the background  ;D

Thanks for the links Redbad.  I've subscribed to those channels and will give them a listen soon.  The German language one will help me with my language learning so that's a cool fringe benefit.

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.

Found this on YouTube today and have been listening to it.  Check it out.  Really cool.

Thanks Matt for the update.  Will do.  I believe that one of the devs  or beta testers sent me the Discord link.  I'll check my messages later.  I have a very busy Saturday ahead of me.  :-(

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:

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.

Ugh - It's been one of those days.  I don't know why I thought you'd posted in French.

Hi Blade, I had the same problem a long time ago. The cause was a bad sound card driver. Look online on the manufacturer's website for your computer for the driver or a newer one.

Other, and maybe a better way: (probably a better way)

Good luck.

Salut Blade, j'ai eu la meme probleme il y a des longtemps.   La cause etait un mauvais pilote de la carte de son.  Cherchez en ligne, sur la site du manufacturer de votre ordi, pour le driver ou l'un plus recent. 

Autre, et peut-etre une meilleur methode:

Traduire la page ci-dessus en francais avec google, si c'est necessaire.  Bon chance.

Thanks Jan.  There are nine files under Vietnamese.  Eight under English.  The difference, other than the English and Vietnamese 68 byte files is this guy:

07/06/2020  02:24 PM           348,654 vietnamese_vbf2.utxt

I didn't see a english_vbf2.utxt in the english localization subdirectory.

Could this be a server side issue or does that screen come from the local location at the end of a round?

Here's what I see for the localization files here:

We played another Finnish map last night after I saw the problem.  That one displayed the Best Squad screen perfectly.

It just seemed strange.  ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I noticed this while trying to figure out where the message may have come from:

PS C:\Users\xxxx> Get-ChildItem -Recurse "C:\Program Files (x86)\EA GAMES\Battlefield 2"  -ErrorAction SilentlyContinue -ev errs | Select-String -Pattern "Best Chinese" -SimpleMatch

C:\Program Files (x86)\EA GAMES\Battlefield 2\mods\bf2\Localization\English\English.utxt:2624:EOR_bestchinesesquad          BEST CHINESE SQUAD
C:\Program Files (x86)\EA GAMES\Battlefield 2\mods\fh2\localization\vietnamese\vietnamese_vbf2.utxt:1865:EOR_bestchinesesquad          BEST CHINESE SQUAD

PS C:\Users\xxxx>

Is it possible that there's an invalid code reference that's ignoring localization for the English language in that particular Finnish map?  The splash screen at the end of the round shows what looks like a burn out ISU-152 sitting on a road with broken trees on either side of it.  Sorry - I wish I could remember what map that was, and I wish I had a screen capture.   :-(

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.

Thanks Jan.  I was able to get in and play yesterday after your post.
