i think it would be a great idea to bring fh2 to steam there are still people who dont know about the mod makeing it accessible through steam would be a good idea to get players again
but however im afraid putting a game on steam would cost money and besides that the devs dont have the manpower atm to make fh2 a standalone and put it on steam, but i would love to see it on steam as a standalone =-p  ;D

A little bit OT question, but considering some cfonstant questions relating to the future of this mod, I came up with such idea:
Would it be possible to make FH2 standalone game published on Steam when BF2 becomes free, like it happened with BF1942?
It is possible to make FH2 standalone, and I believe it will happen in the future, I'm not sure about publishing it on Steam tho.  ;)

Keep in mind that I'm not a member of a development team so I can't really tell what's going to happen with FH in future, but since PR mod for BF2 is going to be a standalone soon, I don't see a reason why it should not happen to FH2 as well... EA can see a reason though ;)

Well, publishing it on Steam would make this mod more popular for sure. I bet more than half BF2 players never heard about this mod...

Imagine the reaction of Valve when somebody will come to them and say "We have a nice game here, please distribute it. It borrows binaries, statics, sounds, animations, etc. from EA/DICE's BF2, but it's fine".

I am sure that half has moved on to bf3/4 a long time ago and  they probably aren't even interested in playing bf2 anymore. If they do become interested (for nostalgic or other reasons)  I'm sure they'll easily find their way to either these or PR's forums through the wast plains of the Internet.

The main problem, as it currently stands, is the inability to get BF2 legally anymore (besides Amazon which might cost a lot/take a long time to ship). A standalone might just fix that and give FH2 a few more years of stable, albeit small population.

Yeah... It could be a problem... So Origin left? That sucks... But better this than nothing...

So I'll answer to your question by a question - what application do you always have to use install BF3/BF4?

But BF: Bad Company 2 is possible to purchase through Steam, so I don't see a problem to have FH2 there...

Thats because it was made before Origin. All games published by EA that are on steam were games launched before origin's launch, like Mass Effect 2, Bad Company 2, Battlefield 2, etc etc... Ever since Origin all EA games are only there, like Mass Effect 3, Dragon Age 3, etc etc... Its more of a EA decision than Valve. I doubt both PR and FH2 would manage to go to steam.
