Hello again everyone! Despite the obvious problems we've had over the last weekend with the password going out ahead of schedule, the release went very well indeed. Over the weekend we hit into the top 20 overall of the mods out there on all engines, which we consider quite a feat for an engine that's fighting with tons of other quality titles out there! So we'd like to say a big thank you to all of the fans out there supporting us by playing the mod!
If you've already downloaded the mod and are having difficulties finding servers using the battlefield 1942 ingame browser, we recommend using the All Seeing Eye for finding servers. It has a much better chance of finding servers for Forgotten Hope and any mod for any game engine you have installed. You can get it here.
If you haven't tried out Forgotten Hope yet, and were wondering what we're all about, you'll be pleased to see that all of our pages are back after using a redirection method to help keep our site from bogging down during the release. You can check out all of the pages for the content included within the mod. Plus I've added some more mirrors for downloading Forgotten Hope version 0.65 as well. In our downloads section you'll find links to download the mod as one whole file, or you can download it in three smaller parts. It's all up to you, but we'd recommend downloading the mod in smaller peices, as it decreases the chance of a corrupt download, plus you don't have to leave your computer running for quite as long.
If you're still having trouble deciding on whether you want to try out Forgotten Hope version 0.65, be sure to check out our trailer. You'll find mirrors of it below!

Still having trouble deciding!? Well we have a special treat for you all today. Recently we threw a fan screen shot contest, and today I'd like to post the winning shots. We had so many really good shots that 24 ingames screens from the latest installment of Forgotten Hope version 0.65 were chosen to be put up on the main page. Special thanks goes out to Rikupsoni, Spit, James Doolittle, PunkRockerDave, A$$A$$IN, Al Capone, Beefcak, stg. monkfish, schmoppa, and FactionRecon for these quality screen shots. You can check out all of the screenshots in our public forums, as well as post your very own if you wish
That's all for this update. Once again thanks to all of the fans out there playing the mod. Be sure to stop by our public forums to discuss this news update.
