'BF1942: Forgotten Hope' - Mod Available NOW

by Rainier on Sept. 27, 2003 @ 6:53 p.m. PDT

The Forgotten Hope team has released the first beta of their realism MOD for Battlefield 1942. Forgotten Hope Beta 0.5 is about 50% complete and features a huge number of planes, tanks and battleships - not only beautifully modelled, but also simulated in a very realistic way. To top it all off there is a choice of new maps as well. (thanks Evilavatar). Read more for download links ...

The installer may appear to freeze while copying the larger files, but it is just working hard to unpack them. Give it a few minutes depending on your CPU.

This version contains way too many great new maps, vehicles weapons to list them all in this news posting, but you will be exploring the current 7 all-new maps and several dice modifications for a good while.. at least till we release the next patch featuring 3-5 all new maps, several new land vehicles, a few more planes and many hand weapons that did not make it to this release. We worked hard to bring this beta out today (well, for some its already the next day), and being our first release it didnt go quite as planned, but hey there's always a first time!

The next patch (some weeks away, unless we have to patch something sooner) will truly be something awesome.. so watch this spot for more big announcements and updates on the progress of Forgotten Hope.


Lots of unfinished or buggy material had to be removed from this first public beta, about 30% of our current total. Including 4 already playable and good maps, several vehicles, stationary weapons and hand weapons. This is not the end, this is the beginning.

Forgotten Hope Beta 0.5 is about 50% complete, with the emphasis more towards maps, aeroplanes and naval equipment at the moment. The future patches will further balance the other areas of the mod including hand weapons and land vehicles.

BUG UPDATE: Mystery bug isolated to two vehicles on Guadalcanal, Kursk and El Alamein. SERVER ADMINS ARE ADVICED NOT TO HOST THESE MAPS. A tiny hotfix will follow when we've tested it properly. Play/Host the NEW FH MAPS ONLY to be safer.
