It is with a heavy heart that I my friends, wave goodbye to all of you. While my love for this great mod has never left me, my motivation to work on it has, and unfortunately I am officially retiring from the development team.

However before I go I thought I would do something different. You see, often times in such a small gaming community of players and developers, it can be hard to facilitate communication between these two groups. Developers often times fade into the abyss of real life (rightfully so), with little warning or notice to the public. But you see, this community and this game has meant so much more to me. I started playing Battlefield 2 back in 2006. It was the first game I'd ever played on a PC, and I was instantly hooked. One thing led to another and I then discovered modding, which led me to discover various FH2 updates, which led me to discover FH1, and the rest is history. I started out just like all of you, as a regular fan of the mod reading the updates every week. It never occurred to me that I would end up being the guy who would eventually write them, but through a lot of hard work, I was able to improve my mapping skills and go from public player to betatester to developer.

It may sound cheesy, but I've really enjoyed these past few years doing what I've done. I've made a lot of friends as well, some of whom I've actually spend time with in real life, and some whom I wish I could. And overall, I have to say that I'm quite pleased with my choice to dedicate many late-night hours to this mod. I just wish I had more dedication to stay on the team and continue some of the work that I've started.

So what's next for me? Well for one I won't be writing any more news updates. There may a few weeks in delay before someone else picks up my job, but eventually someone will. I gotta say, I'll miss seeing everyone try to guess the content in each news update. I'll of course still read the forums and try to spark up conversations when I can.

What's next for the mod then I'm sure many of you have been wondering these past few months. Well I can say is be patient. Our team grows smaller each month and is kept alive by a handful of dedicated individuals at this point. Hopefully the new patch will be finished up soon and out the door for all of you to enjoy. There are few things left to reveal so keep an eye out for that as well. Beyond that all I can say is good things are coming. You might not hear about them for a few weeks, months, or even years but good things are coming.

And I think with that I can end on a good note. To everyone here in the Forgotten Hope community, I say goodnight and goodbye.

Gaming / Recommend Some Good HoI III Mods
« on: 01-05-2012, 05:05:35 »
I've been playing HoI III now off and on for quite some time now, and during that time I've always used DiDay's "ICE" mod. However, now that I'm reinstalling the game, yet again, I was wondering if there is anything better out there?

I know we have some HoI III players on these boards, so hopefully you guys can recommend some good solid mods. I'm mostly looking for WWII-era mods that add lots of new content and gameplay features to the original game, just like the ICE mod did.

Gaming / Comments on $2,000 Gaming Build
« on: 29-04-2012, 03:04:02 »
Hello there everyone,

Below is a list of parts that I have selected which I will purchase and use to build a new gaming computer. My budget is around $2,000 for the basic parts (fancy accessories will come later). However, since my computer knowledge is a bit lacking, I was hoping I could get some feedback on what I have selected in terms of quality, reliability, and compatibility. Here is my list:

Now if you actually looked through it all, then you probably noticed I was missing some parts. Yes, I realize this. The whole build will be placed inside a Cooler Master HAF X case which I purchased in a black Friday deal. It will be hooked up to a 37" 1080p HDTV, and will be powered by an Intel i7 quad-core "Ivy Bridge" cpu*, and I think that about covers it. Thanks everyone.

*Does anyone know where or when the new Ivy Bridge cpu's will be available for purchase? I can't find them anywhere.
