    The latest post at FH2 is Part 5. That's the last post before the release (which is tomorrow, Friday). Check it out at
    http://forgottenhope.warumdarum.de/news.php? It has a link to their Discord, link to a blog entry giving more information on the new maps, and some links to funny moments in FH2.55 in the Goodbye to FH2.55 vids.

    As usual, the latest information is at the official FH2 site posted, but I've copied a couple of things here.

    FH2 created a more detailed change log for FH2.56. It is much more helpful than the detailed one I posted above, (which was just taken from the installation file changelog.txt).

    Forgotten_Hope_2.56_Changelog


    This is a copy of the blog on the two new maps:

    It is that time again...

    Like every release, here are some previews of the new maps.

    Motovskiy Bay (Made by Ts4EVER)

    The arctic front was one of the most inhospitable theaters of the Second World War: a rugged moonscape of mountains, boulders and boggy lakes. Despite these obstacles and the freezing temperatures, the Soviet 12th Naval Infantry Brigade launched an amphibious assault across Motovskiy Bay with the aim of cutting off the retreat of the 6th Gebirgsjaeger Division. The Red Army was able to seize a bridgehead, but the German mountaineers launched a counter attack on the 4th of May 1942.

    The German commander issued orders to advance towards Hoehe 172.3, in the hopes of pushing the Russians back into the bay. Soon the German mountaineers and the Russian marines would be locked in deadly combat for the roof of the world.




    Snipers, machine gunners and sneaky players will enjoy this infantry map, which is characterised by long lines of sight and a harsh, rocky landscape. Set in the first half of 1942, it is the earliest map on the Eastern Front and it features weapon loadouts not previously seen in FH2 (or almost any game, for that matter), including large numbers of Tokarev rifles, exploding bullets for German snipers, silenced Russian rifles and the rare PPD series of submachineguns, ancestors to the famous PPsh41.

    To hold back the German tide, the Soviets can load canister rounds into their 45mm guns, effectively turning them into giant shotguns. Whether you play as a hardy German mountaineer or a member of Viktor Leonov's crack special reconnaisance detachment: A slow and tactical approach is most certain to bring success on this new and unique entry into FH2's map pool.

    Tali (Made by Flippy Warbear and hitmaker)

    June 1944, Karelian Isthmus. The ill-prepared Viipuri-Kuparsaari-Taipale line faces a disaster as the Red Army captures the city of Viipuri on the 20th. Meanwhile the first skirmishes near the village of Tali had begun. On the foggy morning of the 25th, after a massive artillery barrage, the Red Army crushes the Finnish lines around lake Leitimo. The Soviet forces then target the crucial Portinhoikka crossroad, expecting to advance further to Juustila and Ihantala. In response, Major General Lagus sends his Armoured Division to face the Red Army onslaught, with German Luftwaffe detachment Kuhlmey arriving to assist the Finns just in time. The largest battle in the history of the Nordic countries is about to unfold...



    The Finns have been part of FH2 for some years now, but this is the first time they bring their own tanks and aircraft! Assembled from various sources, their armor is an eclectic mix of styles and capabilities:

    There is the well-known StuG III, or "Sturmi", an effective tank hunter with a low profile, sent over by their German allies. For fans of light tanks, the T-26 and the rare T-50 provide good opportunities for infantry support. The main offensive punch comes from captured Russian T-34/76 "Sotka" tanks, combining good protection and firepower with excellent speed. This lets the Finns outmaneuver the heavier Russian armor.
    If push comes to shove, they also have two aces up their sleeves: A captured T-34/85 and ISU-152. But be mindful not to lose these newer models, since they are in very short supply. In the air, the Finns are supported not only by German Stukas, but also their own BF109 fighters, rounding out the Finnish arsenal on this fast-paced tank map.

    Re: FH2.56 Release Friday 15 May 2020

    Can't believe its still an ongoing mod but it is, kinda.

    Is it like a personal project like the crap I do with ARMA that I know no one will ever play? Yeah sure someone will play this new FH2 stuff but not many. Notice I did not call the real stuff they do crap like I call the stuff I do.

    Like 2 years ago I think some were still doing FH1 stuff, is that still an ongoing thing?
    Kissinger Quote "The superpowers often behave like two heavily armed blind men feeling their way around a room, each believing himself in mortal peril from the other, whom he assumes to have perfect vision.
    Over time even two armed blind men in a room can do enormous damage to each other, not to speak of the room."

    Josey Wales: When I get to likin' someone, they ain't around long.
    Lone Watie: I notice when you get to DISlikin' someone they ain't around for long neither.

    The camps I remember being in. Maybe some others, I was drinking, I was on the moon with Steve.

    Yeah, the FH2 Dev's have a labor of love. They do awesome work for such an old platform. There are still enough to play it, even in a tournament. But from what some players tell me, tournaments are not like in the days when the game was most active. Now, many players, (or most, some say), join only to play on game day and are gone until the next week's battle. We see some small numbers on our local server, but most players are in Europe on European servers. WaW still supports the game with certain game supporting services; at least as long as our server box is around.
