Its been about a year or more since I've played, but finally got BF2 on steam and setup Fh2 again :)

I'm really hoping there is still a good amount of players on north American Thursday nights!

Something frustrating I think in the game is its really easy to bull doze the opposing team, with a few good eggs on your side, it becomes very imbalanced regarding level design.

I'm currently leveling all my weapons up to 50. Only a few more weapons to go!

Community Newsletter was released today :) Whilst it pertains more to TW forums, I thought to post it here as you guys have been very supportive.

Yeah, fair point. Well the main thing is, if I can find out for sure that Bf2 works on Windows 8, then I'll just buy a new copy on steam. Its just I don't want to spend money, only to have it still not work. I've seen it works for some people, but I can't seem to find a solid answer.

FH2 Help / Support / FH2/BF2 and Win8pro compatability

Hey everyone.

I am unsure where else to turn for this inquiry. I haven't really found to much by way of help in Google.

I'm having some issues installing Battlefield 2 (standalone copy, not steam) on Windows 8 Pro OS. According to the battlefield forums, and other places on the internet, BF2 is completely compatible.

My issue is, upon putting in the disc, entering CD keys and beginning the install, it freezes at the file "".

Anyone have this issue, or better, any tips or such to getting BF2 to work on Win8 Pro? I would consider just buying BF2 on steam, as maybe something is wrong with my CD, but I am wary of wasting the 9.99, and equally am unsure if I will get FH2 working through the steam version of BF2.

Any input is appreciated :)

looks very interesting so far.. but can someone explain the reason behind the name 'traction wars'. Maybe i dont understand it, but doesnt sound very appealing.

The name 'Traction Wars' comes from the origins of the game, back when it started, it was intended to be a steampunk type mod in battlefield 2142 based on "Hungry City Chronicles". Things changed quickly.

You can read the game's full history here:

I thought you was dead.......

Haha, nope - I still lurk these forums from time to time :)

Adding into the whole discussion of development taking awhile,

As mudra and fuchs said, we've had our hurdles, especially early on. Over the past year or so things have really picked up, and show no sign of slowing down. Hopefully this is blatantly evident by looking at the very rapid flow of news updates/public interaction that we work hard behind the scenes to correlate content for.

The game takes quite some time to make, Traction Wars is something we all create in our spare time (everyone here is probably familiar with this concept, as the Fh2 devs did/do the same thing). Progress is going well, things are definitely forming together behind the scenes in a very satisfactory manor.

There is a LOT more cool stuff to show on a pretty consistent basis at this point - so keep your eyes open for more and more :)

To sum it all up - development is going great, it takes time... we are making a game with epic intentions!

My theory is that TW has been finished long time ago, but its not being released because devs and the rest of the crew enjoy watching us get impatient way too much. I bet they just sit in some nice, exotic place  and eat various delicacys served on golden plates, checking the forums from time to time to laugh at our misery. Same goes for FH2 eastern front patch. They may claim otherwise, but I know the truth!

Damn!!! You made a perfect guess.

Well, now we have to change our plates to silver.

Cheers for kind words :)

I will do my best to go through and fix the small mistakes before release! Though you're right in that something like that would never really be seen hehe :)

Its important to note that our gameplay videos and ingame level screenshots are all subject to change and are by no means the finished product, especially with things like lighting, effects etc. :)

Btw: my question was not answered. Will there be deployable MG's and changable barrels for the MG42? Deployed MG's are possible but I am not sure about barrel changes.

Its something we want to include, and our MG's like the mg42 is modeled to support such a feature. As far as being in the first release, we have not 100% decided on yet.

Oh and yes deployable.

Thanks for kind words guys :)

About money, I answered this on our forums a few weeks ago as the following;

...the reality is we have and get plenty of talented individuals without the (often problematic and destructive) issues that money involvement brings.

Aside from it being a lot more complicated then you would imagine, the dev team is not very into funding the project or involving money. No clue what the future holds a few years down the road, but at the present the team really just wants to release a fun game that we all create in our free time, its best this way and thats the only thing on our minds :)

I really miss Fh2 forums, and browse them occasionally, figured I would post this to shoot down any woes regarding Traction Wars future...

I've been a developer with Traction Wars team for almost 4 years, right near the start of its ww2 development. I can honestly say over the past 10 months or so the team has grown incredibly stronger, skillful and collectively united towards the goal of creating the game. The talent and willpower was always there, but behind the scenes in development, its really started to click and the ball has really been rolling nicely.

Not sure if there is any real relevancy in my post but I often do see doubts as the game has and does take awhile to create.

Anyway lots of more stuff coming in near future...

Weapons for CryEngine 3 are averaged around 6,000, but that varies, sometimes more, sometimes less.

Vehicles are around 20,000, but that also varies on the vehicle.

I don't remember the playermodel specs.
