I caught a documentary yesterday where they demonstrated the use of ancient bycantine flame-throwers. It was almost surreal, imagining soldiers in old armor and stuff running around with flamethrowers.

Was it by chance this one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aph-3zEacuw&feature=related
It is indeed quite remarkable to imagine something like that happening so long ago. :)

Actually, it was a German program, but they reused much of the footage (for example the chap with the flamethrower)

As a matter of fact I have, but I think the flamethrowers were added in an addon. The facts in the documentary were not new to me, it still remains weird and fantastic.

(ah yes, I was certain that you've been in on one of the many TW discussions), yes it was probably added in the expansion Kingdoms I guess...
But you speak the truth, the fact is very fascinating and weird at the same time!

Flamethrowers AND to have viking axemen for the emperor's bodyguard unit. That's pretty cool.

Almost as cool as flamethrowers in FH2 o/

Yes, Flippy... I was refering to Todtenbrüchearlier... Lovely map... Not sure how it plays in MP, but in SP, with those lobing 88s and costant arty fire, it was murder! Loved the intensity... with spliters from tress flying ever which wat...

As I recall it was mostly fun, but a little unstable. I believe it was bugged in that it was a push map, but it was possible to cap the flags in the wrong order, thereby rendering all flags uncapable.

It was bugged because there were two flags that could be capped at the same time (both labeled 3, or something).  It was common that the entire US army would attack one of them head on, while the entire German army would attack from the other one to the undefended previous flag, and both flags would be capped almost simultaneously, thus breaking the map because no other flag could be capped.

Luckily, the Push code in FH2 is more lenient when things like this happen.  I've yet to see any map (even the complicated Push on the two Tobruk maps) be irreparably broken because two flags have been capped simultaneously (it happened very often in FH1).

We are at the moment not making any official comments regarding a possible releasedate.

With the exception of the release week, do we ever?

Nope, two weeks later. During that time, we all who already have it play on hslan, laughing at you guys searching the whole internet for the 2.2 patch.
