    Re: Get on WaW #1 Server Thursday for Pubby Play!

    It happens It's tough with the ping, but there's a lot of random noobs playing whom a seasoned veteran can outshoot quite easily. One of the few perks of a bigger population! (since gameplay and teamwork can tend to suffer overall)

    Re: Get on WaW #1 Server Thursday for Pubby Play!

    I finally got my computer up and running and everything installed(including CMP) and am ready for some FH2 action on the WAW server tonight. I hope a bunch of others show up too. Also be nice if an admin shows up. I don't have bf2cc or remember my admin logins anymore at this point.

    Re: Get on WaW #1 Server Thursday for Pubby Play!

    As each Thursday, tonight is FH2 gaming night (all maps from CMP map pack). The map pack was last updated about one month ago, so if you played since the 20th of March you are up-to-date.

    Tonight's game starts in about 2 hours.
    The psuedo official start time is 6pm Pacific. That's 9pm US Eastern time.

    If Community Updater sucks for you, find the full download from here.

    Re: Get on WaW #1 Server Thursday for Pubby Play!

    Had a timing conflict last night after an early cocktail sent me on a different path. Sucks because I'll likely be absent for about the next 4 weeks when I'll be relying on a laptop without my main rig.

    Re: Get on WaW #1 Server Thursday for Pubby Play!

    We could have used you. Small group but it still worked. Hey, BF2/FH2 is so old, it should work fine on a laptop... unless the laptop is about as old as the game. The Professor suggested I do a broadcast the day before the game, so I will (hoping it wakes up more people). Funny how each time, we get people saying the connection is so much better than 762. Of course, these are the guys located here in North America.

    We played 16 size maps, but wanted to check out some of the most excellent ships, so we went to 64 size Midway at the end of the evening. We agreed to fight only over Midway Island. Planes and ships can be fun. Although, it is great when we have more numbers and can fill more seats in the battleships and cruiser; that makes for one explosive battle.

    Re: Get on WaW #1 Server Thursday for Pubby Play!

    I might be able to rig up my laptop to play it, but don't know how that works with the battlelog copy of the game. It's all very mysterious.

    It's also the docking into a real monitor, and a real sound system. Once easy tasks, but now that new high end laptops don't come with any of the ports you need, it makes it an expensive (USB-C/thunderbolt cables aren't cheap) and cryptic process where most monitors don't even support the next-gen ports on new laptops so you have to play the adapter game (and neither Dell representatives, nor Geek squad guys could explain it to me) when I was without a desktop for 3 months. Had to do trial, error, and purchase returns, and more trial last time. Now that I have a main rig again, I haven't thought about this rigamarole in a long time. Part of the headache of spending a lot of time in another place means I should have invested in a gaming laptop, but again, even they have some of this port nonsense going on and still don't know about the battlelog set up.

    It's amazing I'm still playing this game. Gets hard to blame friends who bailed, though the people who bailed 8 years ago are still losers.

    ps. Still, will this WWII COD i'm hearing about be the final nail? What's WAWs plans?

    Re: Get on WaW #1 Server Thursday for Pubby Play!

    Indeed USB-C and Thunderbolt can have issues. Thunderbolt 3 is the one to get with USB-C, but there are cable and device limitations that make the choice somewhat complex. There are even cases where you could damage your PC's USB hub if you have the wrong cable. Sheesh. I think that might be for when people use a cable that has a regular USB 3 Type-A connector for the PC and on the other end have a USB-C connector for the device. But I'm no expert on this; do your own research. Fortunately, my new PC's motherboard has a USB-C port that can handle the high current (of the maximum current spec).

    I don't know much about the battlelog copy of BF2, but the FH2 people list it on their download page: http://forgottenhope.warumdarum.de/fh2_downloads.php? so I assume it's good. Maybe if others reading this know something, they can comment.

    FH2 is a great game, IMO. Some people that are new to the game have commented about it having good graphics. Urh, OK. Well it is for sure an excellent game of it's type for anyone with older PC hardware. With the equipment of the Pacific theater that developers at WaW have provided, it has brought back ships and another Axis opponent.

    As for FH2, the only development we have is that of the Community Map Pack (including the Pacific theater). However, the consensus here at WaW is that as a tournament game it is no longer viable for many reasons. Of course, for pubbies, such as yourself, as long as the very small donation requests are filled we will continue to provide the highest performing game server in North America (and probably Europe for that matter).

    Re: Get on WaW #1 Server Thursday for Pubby Play!

    I can't make it to tonight's game, but I'll make sure the server is on the 16 size maps when 6PM (9PM EDT) rolls around. Also, there may be one or two Pubadmin in-game to switch maps for the group.

    Be sure to go here if you need information on the map pack or server.

    Re: Get on WaW #1 Server Thursday for Pubby Play!

    Back in action. I noticed mostly only 2 other servers up the last week or so when I bothered to look; a locked tourney server, and a 762 server running what looked like 20 hours a day with all vanilla maps.

    The world very badly needs an alternative that's got admin help and new maps, or this game will just die off ever so slowly and painfully, the community and all of us with it. Cheers!

    Well, I can't get into game tonight, but will be watching from the admin control panel. Communicate by all-chat.

    Melvin, that mapped we talked about is called firing range. It was up at the ARG server.

    Re: Get on WaW #1 Server Thursday for Pubby Play!

    Professor Anthrax helped save Easter by getting about a dozen of us to switch to WaW's CMP server, from 762's crashing adminless server with 2 russian hackers tking everyone (they both had negative 200+ scores). A much better time was had on this server with 2 actual admins, and the ability to play maps people wanted to see.

    That's great to hear WaW had a place for you to escape too. Wish I had been around to join in.

    Re: Get on WaW #1 Server Thursday for Pubby Play!

    Yeah would have been good to have you around! Seems like 762 is still under attack and the russian TKers are also targeting their server somehow (or so i gathered from chat). Now would be a good time for admins to brush up on !commands (sticky in the admin forum) and be ready to tackle any trouble that follows us to a WaW server.

    (Prof and I practiced and I had him kick me to test).
