...and even on seats inside the M3A1 Halftrack. Someone out there could confirm this?
so much stuff got reworked that it doesn't matter if vehicle is old or not, M3 is bugged, but only the spawn variant (can you confirm regular APC variant works fine?) due to a typo in AI template, it will be fixed in an upcoming hotfix patch

The Operation Cobra map doesn't work on singleplayer anymore either. My life simply can't go on now.
it will be fixed in a upcoming hotfix, together with some other 2.6 bugs

Stonne is the only new map that has sounds.con in level folder to work with EAX
flavion, la_horgne, operation_mars do not have a sounds.con in
motovskiy_bay still dont have it
missing sounds.con files will be also included

thanks for your reports

Try asking on Discord.

What type of ammunition these guys have?
No special ammo for these.

Usual ban time is 2 weeks, after that you should be able to play again. Ban evasion will lead to a permanent ban, so don't try to bypass the ban with a new account, we do have tools to track that down. (For server rules visit

For ban appeals join us at and ask in the #barracks channel. You will be granted a special role with an access to ban-appeals channel by one of the moderators. Server admins will discuss your matter there.

When appealing, be patient, be polite, and remember that everything can be verified on the server's logs.

Little question: will they have AP ammo available? These were mobile artillery, not designed to operate on the frontlines, but these cannons had some AT capabilities and, if I am not mistaken, some AP rounds were provided in case an enemy tank appeared.
They will have regular HE arty shells, smoke shells, and HEAT rounds for protection against armoured vehicles.

Try asking on Discord.

Anyone using Windows 11 is surely not using the forums anymore. Future is now old man, join us on Discord. and ask there.

Is it possible to introduce an option to change not all weapons, but only the main small arms? For example, I play as Germans with a KAR98 rifle and a faustpatron on Vossenac 64. I killed an American soldier. Is it possible to make it so that, when I approach his weapon, I press a separate button on the keyboard, and my Kar 98 rifle changes to a Thompson submachine gun from a corpse, but at the same time the faustpatron and everything else remains?
Not possible.

If this looks like too much reinforcement of the infantry, then, in contrast, you can make it so that the cartridges for the enemy weapon can be replenished only from the box with cartridges on the enemy flag. Then, as soon as the cartridges run out, then the players will throw out the main weapon.
Not possible.

Could you write to me what actual problems you have in the game? Maybe I could think of how it would be better to change them.
No, you clearly have no idea about how the refractor engine works. If you wish to help us, we suggest you to learn modding, and come back with solutions, not ideas.

But you yourself told me today that it would be desirable to improve the submachine guns. So I came up with 5 improvements.
No, you misunderstood my point entirely. Thanks for the suggestion though.

The beta tester wrote to me that now the most powerful weapon is rifles, and that in the game it would be desirable to strengthen submachine guns. To enhance submachine guns, you could do the following:
That's not what I meant, but here we go:

1) Dramatically reduce the recoil of all submachine guns to the level of version 2.0, or almost to that level. In general, it is necessary to make the recoil such that at a distance of 90-100 meters it would be possible to shoot quite accurately from submachine guns with 3 rounds and in more than half of the cases hit the human figure with at least two rounds.
We already told you it's not something we can easily change. There are engine limitations involved like in most cases when it comes to BF2.

2) Increase the power of submachine guns. Most SMGs now take three body hits to kill. You can enhance their power and make it take two hits to kill. Now two hits to kill are enough only for Thompson. Thompson can be made to cause bleeding from one hit in the body.
Damage dealt with SMGs is based on caliber of the cartridge and .45ACP is the biggest pistol round in game, so it deals bigger damage.

3) Reduce spread when shooting from the hip while standing to sitting / lying. And in the sitting / lying position for the same amount. Then the accuracy of the fire from the hip will increase even more.
Not desired. We don't want people to go rambo, we want them to aim the gun.

4) When shooting from a front sight, bring the weapon a little closer to the player. The bottom line is to enlarge the view of this "window" which I marked on the screenshot of the screen in red at the Thompson. In order to see more space ahead in this red window, for this you need to sort of push the submachine gun closer to the player. Then the time spent on aiming from the front sight will be reduced.
Already done on most of the SMGs in game, we can't change whole mod withing 1 mouse click, simply wait for new release to see new animations, or follow 2cool2fool (our animator) on YouTube to some see previews of his work.

5) When a player gets up from a prone position in a standing position, about 1.5-2 seconds from the moment of lifting, the spread when shooting from the hip increases several times, but after 1.5-2 seconds it returns to normal. In skirmishes, this leads to the fact that the player is not immediately able to shoot, but only after these 1.5-2 seconds. Is it possible to do so that either there would be no such gigantic increase in the spread, or to reduce its time to 0.3-0.4 fractions of a second? If this is done, then it will be possible to shoot immediately after changing the position of the body without waiting 1.5-2 seconds. Often in shootouts, this delay of 1.5-2 seconds cost me my life.
Done on purpose to prevent people from dolphin diving. Keep in mind players tend to abuse gameplay mechanics and FH2 is a multiplayer game.

If you make all these changes, then it can lead to the fact that submachine guns become more powerful weapons than rifles and most will play only with them. I have an assumption that in version 2.3 the developers for this very reason sharply increased the recoil of submachine guns, although before that in version 2.0 it was very low.
That's absolutely not our goal, at all. We don't want everyone to play with SMGs. We are trying to portray historically accurate, balanced and fun gameplay with more or less historically accurate SMG to rifle ratios. Balancing the game is much more complicated than you can possible imagine.

At this point I am convinced that you should play totally different game, seeing you want to change every single aspect of FH2.

I'd suggest to simply open your game files and modify them to your preferred settings, nothing is stopping your from modifying your game for your singleplayer use.

We are not implementing any of those changes, please stop spam the forums.
