It's a great mod that i've loved ever since it was released so happy birthday FH2 and thak you developers who have sacrificed countless hours of your free time to bring us the huge amount of high quality content present in the game as the game looks amazing even today! And good luck in the future!!

Happy FHday!

Anywhere I can find the featurelog/changelog of that first version?

I believe the first set of maps included were;

Operation Supercharge
Operation Aberdeen (RIP)
Operation Hyacinth
Bardia
El Alamein
Alam Halfa
Sidi Rezegh
Siege of Tobruk
Mersa Matruh
Sfakia

And of course the lovely 2D Ironsights :P

Only Brits vs Germans
No 4s v k98s
M1928 Tommy Gun v MP40
Bren v MG34

Really a big ass release when you think about it :)

Happy 10 years brothers!

I'm happy you tagged me on FB Joe. Funny that I login in here again last week after a long time.
I think I need to rewrite what I told you on facebook.

I owe so much to this mod. Back in the FH1942 I start practicing creating new textures. this formed the base for my photoshop skills and helped me to get into Photography school. I joined up the armed forces as soon as I was done with school. This also sadly marked the end of my gaming times. I now work as a combat cameraman where I combine the creative side and the military side. two things I love and got formed out of my time in Forgotten Hope.

I can only say I miss those days. I truly get that weird sad feeling in my stomach knowing these times has past. Knowing I will never be in my room at my parents place waiting in the teamspeak server to see if someone want to play, having 15+ full servers and Beta Testing every Sunday. talking to people all across the world sharing the same pasion and most important of all the thight community. The one I joined a game and saw familiair names saying Hi. hanging out on IRC.

I does fill me with joy seeing so many of you guys still hanging out here! Keep the dream alive for all of us, and also keep the dream alive for those who passed away. Jim, aka Rad will probably be smiling down on us knowing you guys still use his vehicles, his equipment and still playing the game he spend allot of time creating. it keeps his legacy alive.




Good old times gent's. Loved it so much, Will miss it everyday...

Jasper aka Invincible.<3

..and havoc... man I was bad at choosing nametags.

Jeesus that was ten years ago? ... I am getting old. But I wish the devs and the community still the best.
For me, FH2 is the only game that I still keep playing on a regular basis. They simply don't make games like that nomore ;)

However, all praising aside, I am a little sad that the mod never made the jump to 'FH3' based on a modern engine with source code access and possibly turn into a real open source project that can be easily accessed on github.

Even though the mod prooves to be an astonishing die-hard, I worry that there will be the day when we can not fill a server any more and the mod dies. Maybe there is still enough strength in the team to turn this into a more modern and open project and breathe some new live into the old bastard, to make sure the good old FH2 gameplay that we all love so much will never die.  :)

Happy 10 Years! Nice to see some old faces!  :D
That other thread failed miserably and if you try to spam or flame here, I will break your arms.
FH2 won't be the last FH. ;)

I'm a bit late but had to come back for this. Ten fucking years, who could've imagined. Due to nostalgia I'm even playing again after several years.

Bought a new PC just to be able to run the BF2 on steroids engine.

Ever since FH 0.7, I never stop having the game in my PC. Happy belated birthday!

Happy 10 years. Back then I never would have expected, this to become my favorite game. I liked this mode back then, yes. But so I liked other games. But I kept sticking to Fh2, because I like the community, i like how people here interested in accurate history, technology and yet trying to publish a balanced and well designed game. I like the art detail and gameplay details of most maps. I learned a lot here. Somehow I even regret, never starting to mod myself.

I haven't been for quite some time but i do tend to check the news from time to time.

Congrats to the team for making this mod what it is, its been a wild and fun ride.
This mod has been a big part of my gaming life for several years. Longer than anything before and after.

Thx for the great times.
Live Long & Die Happy

I'm still around!  I just got busy busy with my first semester of grad school, but I'm still alive and hopefully will be back in game once New Year's is over.  ;D

Can't believe it's been 10 years though, my god the time flies!

Wow, that's some next level necromancy right here! :D
Oh man, I wish I would have prepared something for this, art piece, wallpaper, a song, anything really, but truth is I forgot until I looked at the date today and realized it looked familiar.
Well, that picture with the pink tutu is still out there somewhere...

Found this gem with a bit of searching on my HD:

 Happy 10th FH2.

 Ive been playing FH on and off since the original back in 2002 or so when my daughter was 3, now she is a 19 yr old young college student & daddy still plays FH from time to time.... :P

 There really isnt another game like it after all these years & unfortunately we may not make it another 10, but ill hang around the community until the war is over for good.....


Salute....
