So if it includes the FH2 launcher, does this mean I can basically one and done install this and be ready to play?  Assuming next update doesn't do something funny, I won't have to reinstall this for it to continue working still?
Yes, that is exactly why I created it. You will be able to update the FH2 through the launcher once the patch is released, just as usual.

Dear Everyone,

just a reply from our side, since I just had to clean up a link to this thread here.

In the [762] forums, we do not distribute ways to:

a) circumvent bans (which this software is).
b) to download a copyrighted game, which BF2 still is.

We already have enough problems with people behaving like madmen or cheating on our servers.

There is a reason that battlelog.co was closed down BY REQUEST OF EA Games.
See for yourself: https://battlelog.co/
https://arstechnica.com/gaming/2017/10/ea-shuts-down-fan-run-servers-for-older-battlefield-games/

Step 2 would have been a lawsuit. We cannot afford to have that at [762] .
If the forums at warumdarum.de want to risk that, it is their business.

You can contact each other via PM, but we will delete any reference to distribution links of copyrighted material in our forums.

If there ever is a legal, self made standalone for an Forgotten Hope game, we will gladly spread the word, that is no question. We just hope that there will be a new CD Key- or other security system with it, because if not it will be next to impossible to run a decent server without having lots of admins watching it every evening and re-banning the trouble makers over and over again (what we are doing right now).

Regards,

As far as I understand it, there is only a small part of BF2 included. Maps and more are missing, so the download does not enable you to play BF2. Battlelog was shut down because they provided the complete BF2 game to play for free and also used official EA / BF2 logos on their website.

The cd key issue is also not really a new problem. You can use whatever cd key since the official gamespy servers went down.

It's best not to stir this pot.

It was my mistake posting the link here on the server forum to help someone who received the inevitable bad-key/insta-ban that most newcomers get.

Just don't post the link over there.

Its not impossible to buy a used or sealed BF2 cd with no key or with a banned key.
How to change key should not be a problem.

Hello again,

since we had yet another request of a player that has "never played FH2" ever before and just "downloaded the game" to be unbanned, I will copy my reply to him, that we gave in our forums, into this forum here as well so you guys can see it.

"Alright guys, it is simple.

If you get your game and CD key from an unofficial download, from a CD key generator, you have to take into account the fact, that the keygenerator is not that good and that CD Keys do repeat. So if you get a key that someone else has already used on our servers to break the rules, cheat, hack or spread racism, then this key will of course stay banned.

It is your responsibility to obtain your original game and key and not share it with anyone, so you do not get banned for somebody else's actions.

Because of the fact that we do not have a livestream into your living room and we cannot prove  or disprove that it was not you in the first place, who got banned with the old key, we do not feel obliged to remove banned keys from our ban list. They are on it for a reason.

You may ask the people who spread this downloading and key generating tool for assistance. But it is not our responsibility to fix the problems that arise from the use of repeatedly generated CD keys."

Hmmm... just bumped into this and I think FH2 is going to be on my playlist again. I'm just about had it with PUBG anyway :p

So I installed FH2 on my new pc using this.  The installer worked good and the game runs fine in single player.  The only thing ive noticed is I get a lot of internet connection issues when playing online.  I have good internet speed and generally have a ping of around 120 on euro servers.  Any idea if the problem good be linked to this or is it something else.  I have not tried hooking up through ethernet.  I will try my old pc which has fh2 installed via a full bf2 install.  I use to play that no problem on an even slower internet speed.

Chad1992 try tracert and ping commands to check for lags and possible packet loss. Check your firewall settings for FH2 application.

So it seems that my internet connection drops randomly but only when I am playing FH2.  I can watch HD youtube vids and use the internet all day long with no issues.

Youtube and some surfing is not a proper test to see if you have stable internet connection.
I would first try some other multiplayer games to see if your internet connection has a general problem or if its just fh2/762 server?
Also try switching from wifi to ethernet if you can, as it may also be a wifi problem.

Yea I hooked up an ethernet cable I had and was able to play a round with no issues.  So now I just have to figure out if its my laptop or the router itself.
