I think that it would be a great promotion to create whole gallery of these pics on the FH2 facebook fanpage which has more than 3 thousand fans ;)

I was thinking the same thing, this could be a great way to promote FH. Ik one of the biggest draws for me is how historically accurate this mod is. Showing RL photos within the video game really brings it home.

I'd need some better ingame screens without the hud (might take some of those myself later on) 
I also might try to get the larger formats of the RL images instead of pulling them straight from the forums like I did :P they're too compressed right now for any sort of promotional thing.

Also I'd have to find a way to show the contrast between the two images better. The tobruk one really shows it off and has a good distinction between RL (black and white) and ingame, but I think I have some ideas.

@devs (or anyone who knows) is there a command I can type in the console to fly freely around the map and take screenshots? something like a 'renderer.drawhud 0' type of command that give me like a spectator mode?

Or you could make and then watch a BR file and have the advantage of being able to pause at will.

It's only good for battlescenes, when it comes to map screenshots "spectator mode" is good enough. For promotional purposes it would be really hard to find good looking ingame combat footage.

Wow :o Anctoville was honestly one of the maps I thought was more or less fictional (in terms of not being based off a real map)

Was that church rebuilt? or is that the original church from the '40s?

Dunno, but Anctoville uses a generic FH2 Normandy church static. BTW, you people like this kind of comparison thing, right? Cause I'm thinking about doing it for one of the upcoming maps, as an advertisement thing.

Of course! :D this thread should be stickied imo. using it for advertisement is a perfect idea. Shows off the attention to detail and what FH2 is all about.

It's a nifty little car as long as you don't have to sit in the back or want to transport stuff.
My trombone case just barely fits in the trunk, with about 2 mm to spare, and then it's already full!

And fantastic job on the pictures!
