Hello and welcome back to another Forgotten Hope 2 update.

Today we have a render of our final new weapon in 2.46, the MP34(ö):

The S1-100 was based on a Rheinmetall design similar to the Bergmann MP18. In the aftermath of the Treaty of Versailles, Rheinmetall was forced to buy the Swiss company Waffenfabrik Solothurn in 1929 and work on the prototype there in secret. The S1-100 was a sound weapon, but Solothurn was ill suited to mass produce it. To solve this, Rheinmetall bought a controlling stake in Austrian Waffenfabrik Steyr, and produced the design as the Steyr-Solothurn S1-100 for commercial and military markets.

The MP34 was the designation given to the S1-100 chambered in 9x25mm Mauser upon its adoption by the Austrian Army (the police adopted it as the MP30). Following the 1938 Anschluss, these weapons were acquired by the German Army, and a number were re-chambered for 9x19mm ammunition as the MP34(ö).

A solid weapon made from high quality materials, the MP34(ö) was a poor design for war production, and mid 1940 saw it replaced in production by the simpler MP40. It had only a short combat life in the early days of the war, mostly with the poorly equipped Waffen SS units. When large numbers of the MP38/40 appeared, it was relegated to second line units. Our MP34(ö) was made by Sorken.


Next up, we'd like to list some of the changes in version 2.46:

2 New maps:

    Omaha Beach
    Gold Beach
5 New vehicles:
    BMW R75
    Marder III Ausf M
    Churchill Crocodile
    Churchill AVRE
    LCVP
2 New stationary weapons:
    5"/38 caliber gun (Gleaves Class Destroyer)
    Panzerturm (Hotchkiss H39)
3 New weapons:
    MP34(ö)
    Gewehr 41(W)
    Bangalore Torpedo
Many further changes, including:
    All tanks updated to the simplified projectile collision system
    New Communication Rose
    Changes to Artillery Spotting
    Many changes to existing maps
To see the full list of changes to existing maps, you can find posts by Gavrant in the Feedback Section of the forums.

And finally, a handful of screenshots of some of the new kit in action:

Hello and welcome back to another Forgotten Hope 2 update.

Today, we'd like to show off a rather important change to the way that you will start and update FH2. Firstly though, we'd like to show a fan made trailer for version 2.46, created by the talented JMLigthart:

New to 2.46 is the FH2 Launcher, which has been made, tested and refined by Gavrant, Mayhemic.MAD and Spitfire.

The new launcher provides several useful services, but the most useful is the built in update engine, that can check for and then download new versions of FH2 automatically. The download will restart from where it left off in the case it is interrupted. Broken your FH2 installation? Don't worry, the same torrent engine can repair it too! For those of you with custom maps, the launcher will leave these alone.

You can select which game account you'd like to login with, as well as the number of bots for singleplayer. The launcher also allows you to manage your game without having to use the ingame settings page. You can change the audio and video settings without needing to restart the game afterwards.


Pre-Release Downloads

For those of you who want to jump straight into the action on Friday, we have a pre-release download containing all the files you will need. The password to extract and install 2.46 from this download will be released on the website on Friday. You will need a bittorrent program to download the torrent file, many of these can be downloaded for free.

Download the Forgotten Hope 2.46 Pre-Release Torrent (contains both parts)

Download the Forgotten Hope 2.46 Pre-Release Installer Part 1

Download the Forgotten Hope 2.46 Pre-Release Installer Part 2

If you are a server administrator and would like to have your server up and running by this Friday for the release, you can download the necessary files here. The md5 checksum can be referenced here.

Hello and welcome back to another Forgotten Hope 2 update.

It might not come as much of a surprise to those of you who have read the title of this update, but Forgotten Hope 2 version 2.46 will be released later this week on:

Friday 11th April 2014 @ 18:00 UTC

Although this come over a year and a half after the release of 2.45, we hope that the new maps, weapons and vehicles as well as the changes that we have made to the existing content will make up for this. While we have announced both of the maps - Omaha Beach and Gold Beach - in this distinctly D-Day themed update, we still have a few items of interest to tell you about in the coming days.

We would also like to give a special thank you to our beta testing team. Without their continued support and dedication, there would be no FH2 as we know it.

Finally, as if the news of the next version wasn't exciting enough, we also have a few screenshots to show of the new communications rose that will be featured in version 2.46.

As you can see, it is a lot simpler in layout to the current version, which should mean that it is much easier to use in life and death situations. You might notice that some of the buttons have two commands; you can activate the alternative options by either left or right clicking.

Finally, you might notice that when you have the ability to spot for artillery, you will have two blue commands available. You can use these to give the artillerists a better idea of what you want them to do. Want that antitank gun pinning your squad down taken out? You better spot for high explosives. Your spot will be marked on everyone's minimap, so that your teammates will know to keep clear:

Or maybe you need some smoke cover to cross that open field. An empty spot might have been overlooked by the artillery before, but when they see the smoke icon they'll know what you wanted:

The new communications rose was made by Malsa, Gavrant and Spitfire, with the update to the artillery spotting provided by Gavrant.


Our winner for this week's screenshot competition is Matthew_Baker. You can view the winning submission here.

We are now accepting entries for the week of April 7th. The winner will be announced in the final part. If you think you have the best FH2 screenshot, post them here.


That's all for today, but be sure to come back tomorrow for another update. Until then, feel free to visit our IRC channel, our public forums, and/or our Twitter and Facebook pages to discuss this update and other news.

Hello and welcome back to another Forgotten Hope 2 update.

As most of you may be aware, news from FH2 has been a little thin on the ground in the last few months. Today, we'd like to explain why.

We have long been dissatisfied with the voiceovers that we've used. The original ones in version 2.0 were straight out of Battlefield 2, and too modern. The current ones from Battlefield 1942 suit the time period well enough, but are missing some important commands and can also be a bit hard to understand. Well, with some hard work and lucky connections over the last 6 months, we have finally managed to improve!

With the help of a talented voice artist (who would like to remain anonymous), we have completely remade every voice command. He has given us full sets for all current armies, armies in the future Eastern Front patches, and also a few more (just in case!).

But what good is writing about these new voices if you can't hear them? Although we cannot show you the actual commands yet (we are still adding the finishing touches to the new commrose that was required), our voice artist was kind enough to narrate our first 2.46 teaser video, made by the talented NTH.


Our winners for this week's screenshot competition is RAnDOOm. You can view the winning submission here.

We are still accepting entries for the week of March 31st. If you think you have the best FH2 screenshot, post them here.


That's all for this week, but be sure to come back next time for another update. Until then, feel free to visit our IRC channel, our public forums, and/or our Twitter and Facebook pages to discuss this update and other news.
