What works

Everything, both playing online multiplayer and local singleplayer (using 64-bit wineprefix).

What does not

The launcher crashes, but you can simply run the ForgottenHope2.exe directly, which works without problems.

(To set your Clan Tag manually, edit C:/users/USERNAME/My Documents/Forgottenhp 2/Profiles/Global.con and set

GlobalSettings.setNamePrefix "MYCLANTAG"

Additional Comments

In sound settings, use Software Sound. Using Hardware Sound I get some weird sound doubling glitches, but Software works just fine (tested with pulseaudio on AMD Raven audio).

Mac users suffering from "creating account / connecting to account server" Freeze
by Mjartin Kilt on Sunday May 31st 2020, 8:37
Dear all,

for months now, I am trying to run BF 2 via BF 2 Hub (since EA servers are down) or Forgotten Hope 2 (a standalone mod for BF2 using independent account servers / servers) on my MAC via Crossover or Wine.

Both, Wine or Crossover, cant make BF2 or FH2 run. I get stuck on the same problem which is:

I boot the game, I watch/skip the intro and then the login page appears.
Problem: whenever I try to log in with an existing BF2 Hub account or FH2 account, the "connecting to account server page" appears and I wait. But it takes forever, the game freezes in this moment, since I hear the background music going on, but no reaction.

Same if I try to create a new account (e.g. in the FH 2 game). The game freezes on the "creating account" page.

I researched and found out that many BF2 or FH2 Fans have this issue. They cant solve it. Some old PC-BF2 users say, that this problem occured to them when they had their Firewall blocking BF2.

Problem: Macs usually have their firewall off by default. Only question is, does Wine/Crossover use a firewall? Some say no.

Only thing I can confirm in this matter is: If you type in a wrong password for an already existing account on the "retrieve account / log in page", the game tells you that you used a wrong password (strange, if it would be a firewall problem, it shouldnt be able to tell you that right?)...

Guys? Any Help? 8 Players I know so far, have the same issue via Crossover / Wine. Bootcamp seems to work fine with FH2 / BF2
