Singleplayer and Coop / battle of Keren help
« on: 17-02-2020, 02:02:59 »
Gang:
The battle for Keren is vexing me-in my last go round we captured everything except for Keren Town and Keren station but we had suffered too much attrition to get there and we timed out;

Sure the Eritrean countryside is terribly rough in real life, but my main thing is how armor has to be channeled down the creekbeds. Is there a way for engineers to clear a path thru the mines and allow thanks to go up and over some of the pathways? Not to mention Ascedra Valley could probably use an indirect approach.
Not to mention, the cruisers and matildas don't have HE shells for their tanks nor do they have 'hull gunners'. Italian infantrymen are proving to be a very troublesome obstacle.

Singleplayer and Coop / Loadout question:
« on: 12-05-2018, 18:05:47 »
Gang:

I am, as usual, enjoying my solo gaming on my favorite map--Operation Cobra as the German A/T grenadier in the Water Mill...the AT grenade works wonders on all targets as I have said before BUT...I seem to recall there was one Allied Loadout that had the following:

M1 Garand Rifleman armed with a A/T rifle grenade as well as hand thrown frags, but I can't remember if it's on all the maps. I would love to have the A/T grenades to fire as well as ones I can throw out of windows.
Maybe it's on another map or maybe not--can anyone direct me to the particular loadout?

Thanks ahead of time.

Singleplayer and Coop / firing a 'heavy' weapon on the move?
« on: 23-10-2017, 00:10:27 »
Guys:

I was wondering if it was possible to shoot the following weapons from the hip:

MG34/43

Any of those anti tank rifles.

Thanks ahead of time.

Singleplayer and Coop / Le German Satchel Charge!
« on: 11-09-2017, 04:09:51 »
Gang:

Been trying out a new weapon in the watermill at Operation Cobra; now...along with the anti tank grenade, I found the engineer satchel charge to be quite a formidable weapon. Now here's the dumb question-how do we throw the thing out a window? I try but it usually lands in the same floor I am on resulting in a 'vaporized' me. Now if I get overrun, I can creep down the stairs of the watermill & toss the charge out the door & run like hell for the corner upstairs but to just shove it or toss it out a window seems to be 'undoable'.

Thanks ahead of time.

Guys:

I found out recently that the Port El Besin map includes some of the buildings that were featured in the famous (and fictional) battle of Ouistreham Casino in the movie 'The Longest Day'.  So  then...where are these particular buildings?

Thanks ahead of time

G'day gang:

While I have taken my leave of FH2 for the time being, the ONE thing that stuck with me was during Dukla Pass (or was it Arad?)...anyway, I had a hell of a problem with the IS 2 Stalin tank. I would hit it head on and even from the flank with a Panther's main gun & the shot would just ricochet off....so like the Matilda is a problem--how do I kill the Stalin? Do I need to creep around & hit it from the rear or the flank? DO I suicidally run up to it with a satchel charge? Or do I try to lure it in front of a 'handy' 88 flak gun?

Add some new maps if any are available for use in single player: The various Pacific Island maps (Guadacanal, Tarawa, etc) Italian/Sicilian Maps; Sainte Mare Eglise, Carentan & other 'paratrooper-centric' maps...now I don't know if I can do that in co-op/sp or not but I am grateful for any help.



Thanks ahead of time

I am diving in to the FH2 game again; before I get too deep into this, I wanted to know if FH 2 (or BF2 for that matter) works on Win10;

Thanks ahead of time.

Singleplayer and Coop / How do I make my game do this?
« on: 12-03-2016, 00:03:29 »
Gang:

I am a dedicated single player as you probably know; I have a few favorite scenarios as an Axis Soldier but wanted to know if there is a way to 'spice up the odds': I want to be able to fight heavily outnumbered. Is there a way to increase the number of enemy 'bots while leaving my side's numbers the same?

Thanks ahead of time.

Singleplayer and Coop / My FH2 JUST updated...
« on: 16-02-2016, 02:02:58 »
I was hoping to see some of those new Eastern Front Maps to play in single play but  while the 'home screen' is now different, there are no new maps-just the same ones: Western Front, Greece & North Africa. Did I miss anything or are the East Front maps yet to come?

Thanks ahead of time.

Singleplayer and Coop / Changing the game slighly...
« on: 23-05-2015, 20:05:53 »
Guys:
Two things I noticed that are different from FH1;
 I cannot take control of enemy armored vehicles. Trucks, APCs, cars & halftracks I can, but I can't take control of a tank or an armored car.
The map/radar doesn't show enemies anymore unless there is a recon craft overhead.

In both cases is there any way I can change that setting & if 'yes', please let me know how.

Thanks, ahead of time.

Guys:

I have noticed that some maps in FH1 & FH2 have a position that if you maintain control you can pretty much win the match (--IE: Arnhem in FH1-the 6 Pounder position right next to the bridge offramp; if you keep control of that gun there is NO way a German vehicle can get into the town; The Watermill in Operation Cobra; if you are armed with the A/T grenade & stay by the ammo crates you can eventually kill off everyone). I haven't noticed any other points on other maps that have concealment, ammo & a good field of fire, but those two, but I was wondering if each map had 'a ringer'.

Guys:

Among the messages that stream along telling me who killed who, I noticed this message in bright yellow letters:

PY WARN: Check mods/fh2-error-20105 50118-154048.log on the server.

Does this mean anything important?

Thanks ahead of time.

Guys:

Gotta ask: Any hope that we SP Offline players will get an Italian Front or Russian Front Map to play? I recall mention of a map recreating a Carpathian fight between the Germans & the USSR & I have always hoped that maps from Battlefield 2 'road to Rome' will be recreated.
