Hello and welcome back to another update of Forgotten Hope. Today is the day that you've all been waiting for. The release of 2.26 is finally here! We have for you today the password for the pre-release torrent files and the download link for the regular installer that you've all been waiting for, as well as the official trailer.
But before all of that, we would again like to thank all the betatesters and public players who helped find and identify all the bugs that we've fixed in this new patch. A big thank you to all!
Up first we have a the official 2.26 trailer made by Bob_Sacamano showing off the new map, Port-en-Bessin.
And now, without any further delay, the password for the Forgotten Hope 2.26 torrent files are:
To help you through the process of installing Forgotten Hope 2.26, we've prepared some step-by-step instructions. There is only one file required to play 2.26 (if you have 2.25 installed), and an additional two files if you plan to host a dedicated server or if you have a modified version of Forgotten Hope 2.25. First, you have the passworded torrent file. There is both a patch (1022.68MB) and a full installer (3.11GB) available for 2.26. If you do not have FH2 installed at all, or have to re-install 2.25, then you will have to download both the full installer for 2.2 (2.7GB) and the 2.25 incremental patch (814MB). These files can be found on our downloads page along with a list of mirrors.
After extracting the installer just open the file and it should guide you through the rest of the installation. Just remember, if you downloaded the patch, make sure you have an unedited version of Forgotten Hope 2.25 installed (custom maps are not a problem).
If you've downloaded the files without the password (you will find links to these files below) then you must also first extract the installers from their .zip archives. The program win-rar can also open these files. Once extracted, just run the files and the installer should take you through the rest of the installation. Visit the Downloads Section for a full list of download mirrors or click on one below.

Hello and welcome back to another update of Forgotten Hope 2. Today, we've got the download links for the torrent files, the dedicated server files, and the changelog for 2.26. But first we have a video tribute to recently deceased developer Rad.
As many of you already know, Jim 'Rad' Rogers passed away on April 8th of last month. Today we present to you a video filmed by tester Kubador that we think fits his personality well. You can view the video below.
Next up, we have the passworded torrent files. You will not be able to extract the necessary files until Friday, May 14th when the password is released. In order to download these files, you will need to use a bittorrent client. We recommend one such as uTorrent.
The following torrents contains the client files needed to properly play Forgotten Hope version 2.26. If you have an unmodified version of 2.25, then you will need to only download the 2.26 patch (1022.68MB). The full install is 3.11GB.
If you do not wish to download the torrent files, a regular .exe file will be available for download on Friday, May 14th, as well as the password for the pre-release torrents.
We also have the server files for those who wish to host their own dedicated FH2 server. If you do not plan to do this, you do not need to download these files.
Finally, we have the full changelog for those who wish to see all of the changes that have been done over the past few months. In this patch, we committed ourselves to fixing as many bugs as possible, and over the past few months, we are proud to announce that we have made over 1,000 changes since the 2.25 release.
And last but not least we have a quick announcement from the World at War Tournament regarding the opening of Campaign 21. Here's what they had to say. (Note: You do not need to participate in World at War in order to download and install 2.26.)

Hello and welcome back to another update of Forgotten Hope. Today we are very happy to announce the release date for the latest FH2 patch: 2.26. We also have a large amount of in-game screenshots of most of the new content you will find in 2.26.
Forgotten Hope 2.26 Release Date!
We would also like to give a special 'thank you' to our beta testing team. We've spent almost an entire 5 months fixing bugs and glitches, and without the dedication of our testing team to find those bugs, and test the fixes, this release would not be possible. In addition to a large number of 'squashed' bugs, we are also releasing some brand new content for all of you to enjoy. You can read a quick list below.
-New Port-en-Bessin map
And now for your viewing pleasure, we have several in-game screenshots of already shown off content, as well as a few items that never made it into the news updates.
That's all for this week, but be sure to come back this Wednesday for part 2! Until then, feel free to visit our IRC channel and our public forums to discuss this update and other news.
