Hello and welcome back to another update of Forgotten Hope. Today is the day that you've all been waiting for. The release of 2.25 is finally upon us. We are bringing to you the password for the pre-release torrent file and the download link for the regular installer that you've all been waiting for. But before that, please give a big thank you to all the developers and beta-testers of the FH2 mod team. These last few months have been filled with triumph and tears, but in the end this has been the fastest release to date in Forgotten Hope 2 history. Without the hard work of many talented people, and the unconditional loyalty of our fans, this release would not have been possible.
So, without any further delay, the password for the 2.25 torrent file is:
To help you through the process of installing Forgotten Hope 2.25, we've prepared some step-by-step instructions. There is only one file required to play 2.25, and an additional two files if you plan to host a dedicated server or if you have a modified version of Forgotten Hope 2.2. First, you have the passworded torrent file. There is only a patch available for 2.25 (814MB). If you do not have FH2 installed at all, or have to re-install 2.2, then you will have to download both the patch and the full-installer for 2.2 (2.7GB). These files are in .rar format and you will need a program such as win-rar to extract the installation file.
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 2.2 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 list of download mirrors or click on one below.
Once again, we would like to thank all those fans who voted FH2 into the top 100 mods of 2009 for the Mod of the Year Awards. The second phase of voting has begun however, and we urge all of you to vote! But remember, if you register with the website, your vote will count for more.

On a final note, we would like to thank all the fans for their love and support of this great mod. We hope you enjoy the new patch and have some good times while playing.
