Hey, Dick (I assume I can call you by your first name, Dick).  If I go to the official EA BF2 site, and the latest update they list is 1.41, that would lead one to believe that the latest update is 1.41.  Instead of being a dick, Dick, perhaps you could have just said "Yeah, they haven't updated their web page.  Silly of them wasn't it?"

Instead, you had to be a dick.  Is that what I can expect around here?

FOAD.   >:(

The link you supply to download BF2 patch 1.5.  Where does that come from?  The latest official EA BF2 patch appears to be 1.41, found http://largedownloads.ea.com/pub/patches/BF2/.

Not that I'm a suspicious SOB, but...well, yes.  I'm a suspicious SOB.   >:(


You are not a suspicious SOB, more a lazy SOB.

I sense a lot of passive aggressiveness in that post, but hey maybe I am just a suspicious SOB.

Keep it clean boys, I wouldn't want to wake 'ol mister Flippy from down the lane to crack some skulls.

The latest patch is indeed 1.5, EA most likely has not updated the page due to the game being several years old

Installed 1.5, downloaded and attempted to install fh, and I get a patch verification error that reads:

Patch Verification failed: the root directory doesn't exist.

From the details:
Failing with 'The root directory doesn't exit' because: !wsFileName::DirExists(this->root)

I'm running Windows Vista, if that makes any difference.

Edit: May have downloaded the 32 bit version instead of the 64 bit version.  Checking that...

Edit 2: Trying the Bit-Torrent link, they don't specify 32 bit vs 64 bit, so should I be using a different 2.25 download source?

Edit 3:  Ah! Read the Instructions.  I need to download and install FH 2.2 first.

No, any site with part 1 or part 2 will be the same as the files are all the same.

Ex: 1 moddb
2 random site in swahili

both will still work and there will be no difference

Exactly what did you install? And when does it say you don't have a valid key?

For those of you that have clicked this thread's title, yes! There is a guide to installing Forgotten Hope 2 so that you don't mess anything up!


1. First of all your going to need to install Battlefield 2, the CD version.  Steams downloadable version of Battlefield 2 is not compatible with mods so if you have done that, ask for help there may be a solution.


2. After installing battlefield 2 on your computer, be sure to patch the game to 1.41. http://www.filefront.com/6194285/Battlefield-2-v1.41-Patch/ If this link does not work, please google "Battlefield 2 1.41 patch" and you should get a few sites with links to download it.


3. Now that you've installed patch 1.41, you need to download patch 1.50. Among correcting some bugs this patch allows you to play the game without needing your Battlefield 2 CD!  http://www.filefront.com/14444947/Battlefield-2-Patch-v1.5/  (This is a particularly big patch! So you may want to bring along a book to read, perhaps The Hitchhikers guide to the galaxy? You'll need something to entertain you and if you get hungry you can always go to the Restraunt at the End of the Universe or listen to a concert by Jetblack Deviato but I digress.


4. Now that you've survived your tour of the universe you get to download Forgotten Hope 2, 2.26! The downloads for 2.26 can be found at http://forgottenhope.warumdarum.de/main.php?module=downloads. The files are available in both torrent and an .exe file. If you have a limited internet connection, the files can be downloaded in 2 parts, but if you have time and nothing to do, you can download the full file.

4b. If you have 2.25, you can download the incremental patch to 2.26.

5a. For some of these files you download, you made need rarlab! rarlab can be downloaded at www.rarlab.com. Keep in mind that you need to download the version appropriate to your system! I.e. download the 64bit for 64bit computers and 32bit for 32bit computers. If you do not know what your computer bit is, you can google how to find out!

5b. Now that 2.26 has been downloaded, you'll need to install the files. If you downloaded the torrent, you'll need the password to install the files. The password for 2.26 is 8xx8>\<enjoy>/<8xx8 . Copy and paste should work.

5c. If you downloaded the .exe, you should not need the password, however if you do need a password 8xx8>\<enjoy>/<8xx8 is the password.

6.Install the files on their DEFAULT installer path!

7. Now that you've installed the files, you should be able to play Forgotten Hope 2! Enjoy!

Port-en-Bessin doesn't have bot support yet, although you can create a LAN game and play it.
Did you enter your CD key exactly as it says?
