The launcher update in Forgotten Hope 2.5
« on: 09-02-2016, 00:02:19 »
The following launcher issues were fixed in 2.5 release of Forgotten Hope, many of them have been reported in this board many times:

Main form:
  • Verification of the default player account on the account server is performed now every time when you hit the Play button, to avoid crashes to desktop in the full-screen mode (the infamous "black screen crash" threads here) and cryptic "music player" messages in the windowed mode when the server is down.
First launch:
  • Fixed players getting corrupted in-game controls (the "can't turn the gun" kind of topics on the forum).
  • Fixed the game hanging on launch if player profiles have been copied from another PC.
  • Supposedly fixed "null reference exceptions" encountered by few players on the first launch, probably caused by some corruption of the config (on Windows XP only?).
  • Added import of Project Reality player profiles.
Options - Gameplay:
  • Proper handling of multiple player accounts sharing one name ("offline" Gavrant and "online" Gavrant, for example).
  • Added "[Offline]" suffix to offline accounts in the "Login as" field to distinguish them from online ones.
  • Renamed the "<None>" account to "<None / Manage accounts>", to emphasize one of its main purposes.
Options - Update / Repair:
  • Max. upload speed: the bottom limit raised to 5 KB/sec. Too low max. upload speeds could completely choke connection to uploaders and thus actually prevent you from downloading anything.

Same as before, it's just that you have to wait for 2.5 SP support.

Sorry, could someone please explain these issues? I believe this is the issue I'm encountering at the moment with the 2.51.
