Some time has passed since our last news update. But today we can say once more "Welcome back folks to this weekend's news update". Although there is not any mod development progress to show today we have several community updates for you. We have news about ongoing tournaments as well as information about fan map projects that will bring you great battles in the near future
First of all we have the latest word on two Forgotten Hope Tournaments for you.
Battle for Europe - World at War has started round #10 lately
and every player is welcome to join the battle. For anyone who does not know
about BFE: WaW, here is a quick description:
All Portuguese-speaking players are invited to join the recently started campaign #2 of Batalha Pela Europa. This tournament is also trying to replay the events of WW2 in a historically accurate way.
The first fan map project to introduce today is Forgottenmaps.net. With this
project the initiators want to give mappers the chance to present their work to
the whole community. And with their game server they intend to provide a place
where you can play these maps.
The custom map scene is growing at the moment. Another project coming up is the Forgotten Hope Community Map Pack. The FHCMP developers are currently working on a custom map pack that will bring not-yet-seen battles to your PC. You are welcome to send in your map or help out with ongoing projects if you wish.
Check out their site and feel free to help in the map developing progress.
And last but not least we have news about the official Fan Map Pack #2. We know it took longer than expected but finally we have a release date for you. The Fan Map Pack will be available for you and your favorite game server on Saturday, April 8th, 2005 at 20:00 GMT. Be sure to grab your copy and join in the new battles coming up in Finland, France, Russia and Burma.
That's all for today folks but be sure to come back next weekend for another news update, to see the latest developments about the mod. Feel free to discuss today's update in our public forums.

BUG$ is called away by other responsibilities today, so I am filling in for today's update. We were a little late on the release time, due to technical difficulties, sorry about that, folks.
But you aren't interested in that, anyway, you want the Hotfix!
Do not forget, you need to already have version 0.67 of Forgotten Hope for the Hotfix to work. If you already have version 0.67 installed, just run the 0.67A Hotfix installer and follow its instructions.
If you do not have 0.67 installed you must install it over version 0.65 or 0.66 before you apply the hotfix. If you have any version of Forgotten Hope before 0.65, you will need to remove those versions and install 0.65, then install 0.67, and finally apply the hotfix.You can find download links for the 0.65 full install of Forgotten Hope and the 0.67 patch here.

Hello and welcome back for another news update of the Forgotten Hope Mod. As you know we released the latest version two days ago and it was a pleasure to see that there have been so many downloads already. The first rounds of the final version of 0.67 with all of you out there were really fun, although some of us thought we should spend more time on training--in order not to get shot so often by fans.
But it was not without some significant defects, as you might already know.Due to some last-minute distractions and server issues, a few major bugs managed to conceal their unwanted presence in the final version of 0.67. Thanks to all the feedback from the community we have been able to track down and eliminate the most serious ones.
Now that is done we are working on a hotfix for 0.67. This hotfix should be delivered to your favorite website by Friday evening.
We apologize for the problems that appeared with Forgotten Hope 0.67 but hope you have had fun anyway. Be sure to check out Friday's newsupdate to be get your fix for Forgotten Hope 0.67. And feel free to stop by our public forums to discuss this update. And remember that the Teamspeakserver is available 24 hours a day - and with a little luck you might find a dev who can answer some questions. ;)

What a dilemma! Exams or Forgotton Hope...Forgotton Hope or exams?!?
We experienced our own logistical challenges in the blitzkrieg to get 0.67 to you as soon as possible and in working order. A number of crashbugs surfaced in the waning hours of testing and an ftp nightmare led us to rely on good old-fashioned post mail! Thanks go to our sponsor Flüstertüte from Warumdarum.de his timely cooperation. We've done all the dirty work so...
And now - I need a break. Cya in a few when the server links will be published followed by the client links only a little bit later.
And last but not least we have the Bittorrent pre-release for you. Please note that this file is password protected. The required password will be published at 2000 GMT with the client download links:
