FH2 Help / Support / Re: Error opening FH2
« on: 19-09-2020, 21:09:37 »
I've re-downloaded the launcher at least 7 times now, because it kept breaking (string errors related to CMP). Also tried "repair" but that broke it as well, after a lengthy wait.

Was fine for a while, but with the new CMP update, it's broken all over again after I attempted to repair and update once more. Not sure what else to do. Looking for manual CMP download now....

FH2 Help / Support / Re: Error opening FH2

Similar issue. Launched FH2 just fine for years (decades really). Was very happy to see the CMP updater integrated because the standalone never worked for me, always froze. This time it worked using the integrated FH2 official launcher and I played as normal just fine, including CMP maps for a week.

Suddenly, today, FH2 launcher throws up and error about strings missing, etc (didn't screenshot it) and its gibberish to me. Won't launch. I reinstalled the launcher and am able to launch now, but like mentioned above there's no CMP integration any longer.

Hi Randoom,

This time the installer does not work for me. It keeps crashing halfway through saying it lost connection and do i want "to retry." Have "retried" dozen times and redownloaded the installer 3 times. Also, in the tutorial it says "Point the installer at your Battlefield 2/Forgotten Hope 2 Standalone directory." I do not have this directory, so i left the installer default path which is "C:\Program Files (x86)\EA Games\Battlefield 2."

Anyway, then i tried the manual downloads, which took me about 1 min, but for some reason cannot connect to the server. Wrong path?

Despite these being fairly obvious installs (levels go in levels), can you provide exact folder destinations for BOTH of these manual downloads? Clearly something has gone wrong. I also noticed that when I install the localization folders, one of them overwrites the other. This is my clue that there are 2 separate localization destinations? Do i even need the minimod download?
Thanks!

Once again (as last time) the updater doesn't work -- it just hangs on download or "hashing existing pieces" for an eternity. Please post a normal, manual download like we had last time. It was the ONLY way some of us were able to get it in the first place.

Furthermore on some attempts, I get this:

Nevermind, the error didn't paste from the program. It's some kind of Microsoft run time error. CMP program simply doesn't work for all users. Note this is a brand new machine, so this has happened to me on three computers with three different OS's, Win 7 enterprise, Win 8.1, and now Win 10 home.

Has anyone had experience with downloading BF2 from battlelog and recovering their original account name?

I had a motherboard failure and haven't had the BF2 install disc in years. Since Origin no longer offers BF2, battlelog seems the only way to go, but that seems like recreating a new account. Looks like they are aware of this kind of issue but I can't tell what the procedure is yet, so any veteran help would be much appreciated.

I will totally repair your tank/fix your wagon/bring you cookies in game.

TONIGHTS THE NIGHT!  I've been on the road for 2 weeks so I'm looking forward to a little knifing and bolt-action.

@Ivancic1941 About half the admins that play on the WaW server, are old WOLF guys who started the Thursday night games. We play every Thursday night with other FH regulars and the occasional new face,  like we have for almost five years. The last WaW campaign coincided with the Pacific theater release (actually there were 2 IIRC, the 2nd one was a joint effort with 762 and F|H).

Anyone having trouble finding the server or wondering why there aren't anyone playing on thursday nights should reset your in-game brower filters, turn some off, etc and look again. Or, post over at http://bfewaw.com/forum.php and let the heads know (they know it's been an issue for some people).

That seems like a bad attitude to have about it all. Did you play FH1?

After all these years, this Pacific pack finally completes the game. The Imperial Japanese army, marines, and navy is great, but even better is the full naval component for FH that's been missing since it was ported over to BF2, the final piece to the puzzle that was the amazing balance between fun, scope, and challenge which made FH 1 the best game any of us ever played. Full stop.

The depth added to the game is actually astounding -- whole new layers of gameplay come to life somewhere between the full inclusion of naval units and the dramatic landscapes that maps in this theater tend to play out on. Everyone I talked to also agrees that some magic happens, bringing you straight back to the fondest memories of FH (and even BF42) and that bit of je ne sais quois many always felt FH2 was often lacking (as great as it is), is suddenly there.

It's lurking in the jungle thickets, palms sweating on the hilt of a katana, or the damp stock of a Springfield. It's diving over a jagged mountain peak, flora strafed full of 20mm holes, adrenaline screaming from Arisaka nades and muzzle-fired smoke bombs. It's puking over the side of a PT boat that's speeding over the waves toward death by torpedo, blue skies reflecting off the barrels of 18 inch guns.

It should be gone over thoroughly by the dev team to make sure spawns are proper, flags are in order, etc, then adjusted for an integrated release, and included as soon as humanly possible in an official capacity. The event on saturday was a brilliant time, I'm just sorry I couldn't stay more than 3 hours.

Waw's new server is up, and getting populated now as per the usual Thursday night reload.

It wasn't showing in the out-of-game browser for me though, so want to make sure everyone knows!

Great thread. Unfortunately I cannot vote just yet, because the maps are not broken down by size. Bastogne 16 has nothing to do with Bastogne 64, they share only a name.

Keren 32 is a night map in which the allies have to cross a vast open ravine/valley and climb hills by foot under constant fire, where Keren 64 is a sprawling daytime map in which the allies have huge amounts of tanks and support vehicles, including air support and several different attack routes to choose from at any point in the map.

Eppeldorf 64 is a big combined arms love fest with fresh sparkling snow crunching under your sherman treads, but Eppeldorf 32 is a scary infantry only night map where nazi's jump out and molest you from the shadows, and eppeldorf 16 is an insult to human intelligence, a spazm of toddler tantrums on a poorly conceived hilltop in king of the hill (idiot) mode where the name of the game is spawn rape.

You see where I'm going.... I may love one, and hate the other.

Glad to hear everyone is on it. I was trying to update Wolf and Waw community news pages.

Don't worry. Spitfire is working on a solution together with Ancient Man from PR. This will be released with the first patch soon.

Keep us all informed!

Right on. I don't want to clog up this thread with this but, yeah we need 16 and 32's of every map (every new one anyway).

We've been at this a long time, and even the european crowd needs the maps, just not as desperately.

It's interesting thinking about the comprehensive history of this mod, it's origins and timelime to present day. This mod essentially built my MP gaming life. The first game I ever loved :-*

Same here. Although I'd have to specifically add that it was FH1, not FH2. In many ways FH2 is better, at least on paper, but in practice it has only some of the magic that FH1 had.
