Hello and welcome back to another Forgotten Hope 2 update.

New to 2.46 was the Launcher, and with it came the ability to keep your version of FH2 up to date easily. Well, tomorrow it is time to put this to the test, because Forgotten Hope 2 version 2.47 will be released:

Friday 30th May 2014 @ 18:00 UTC

As many of you will have heard, Gamespy is shutting down their game servers this June. Since this spells the end of online Battlefield 2, we have teamed up with the team at Project Reality to develop a new masterserver that will allow you to keep on playing after the big switch off.

The best news is that you don't even have to do anything at all! Just start FH2 2.47 through the launcher as usual, and all your accounts will be migrated across automatically!

In other news, while there are no new maps or weapons in this update, there are a number of changes that have been made:

  • Omaha: tickets and spawn conditions of 2nd flag group equipment changed

  • Gold Beach: new vehicles added and German artillery setup changed, German assault kit with MP34

  • Minor changes to Sidi Rezegh (added back main base artillery) and Falaise Pocket (removed lewis gun)

  • Added Omaha 16 player layer

  • Singleplayer added to Omaha, with changes for Gold Beach and Villers Bocage

  • Fixed aiming with the Gewehr 41

  • Fixed the physics of the Puma and Ju52

  • Improved ragdoll settings

For server administrators, the 2.47 server files can be found here.

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

We are now accepting entries for the week of June 2nd. 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.
