fh2 Plagiarism (Keep a lookout for this)
« on: 03-05-2011, 20:05:26 »
What WOT cant do for you. So i was browsing google to find a picture of the T21 light tank, a prototype of the T20-T23 series
So i googled it=

http://www.google.be/search?tbm=isch&hl=nl&source=hp&biw=1680&bih=935&q=T21+light+tank&gbv=2&aq=f&aqi=&aql=&oq=

See something already?
I saw it on the last moment..

http://stahlhelm1939.wordpress.com(scroll down)

I reported this to thorondor wich contacted the rest.
After a while i learned other Modders and other have used FH2 material before without permission nor mentioning credit

Morale of this thread=Eyes open people. If you see other people wich use FH2 stuff, renders or such, its good to contact the Moderators/admins to varify if they got permission

Indeed, like I said to you on steam, the guy knowingly covered up the Forgotten Hope logo, thus denying credit.

Not only that, but notice how he has added a blank on top of the makers of the models at the bottom of the render images?

Yep. That was awefull to watch. I scrolled down and down and i kept finding FH2 renders all over the place. Went to the mainsite. And found more renders.

And do you know what the MOST IRRITATING about this is?
Check on the bottom of the main site=

TO me that it is claiming that it is HIS work and that he fights against Plagiarism

It's to educate people on US Army I think. I saw that website and I wasn't sure if it was something worth pursuing. Thank you Theta for bringing this back up, we'll pursue it internally.

And if anyone else finds examples of FH2 plagiarism, let's make this the official thread for posting it.

Yea, I think just about every CoH mod has attempted to get away with using our stuff. We always shoot them down. Also had a bunch of Chinese people try to get at our shit, including one guy who build his own tank-FPS using models from BF42, FH1, and FH2, and then tried to sell it.

What's the point of any blog out there?

But a weird site it sure is. To name your site Stahlhelm and then go all out fetishising on US hardware...
He tries to be plain informative on his site, which I guess it's a good thing, but why on earth tape a logo across the original FH logo makes no sense.

And is this one also FH's by the way? At least he made an effort there...  ;)

FH2 is the game, DarklyDreamingDexter is the name.

Im sure most of the people here that make the models wouldnt mind their work out there. In fact its good advertising.  Just how hard is it to give credit?!?! Im sure hed throw a fit if his stuff was taken and used elsewhere ;-0. But thats stooping to his level...

Which guy/mod tried to get your stuff? If you don't want to write here, then pls send me a pm.
