Those Pzb-39's should be putting holes in that A-13 all day long though. That A-13 only had a maximum armor thickness of like 14mm and even then, the later models barely had 30mm (and even that could still be penetrated with the pzb-39).

Any distance under 100m and the A-13 is as good as dead.

i was saying the hit detection is broken and not that i cant destroy the tanks with the At rifles
killed a few pz2's with it
but what really annoys me is the lack of proper hit detection for the tanks

I was replying more to Reise about the effectiveness of the Anti-tank Rifles. Granted certain tanks were invulnerable no matter what against the ATR's, a lot of tanks could still be effectively disabled if shot in the right place.

I think it's an BF2 engine limitation insofar as disabling a tank by knocking out it's engine or tracks, if that's what you mean by disabling Rock.

Nah, certain areas will get definent crew kills, though only one man at a time (sometimes 2). Tracks would be generally hard to get with an ATR, but a flame-out is certainly possible, but very hard and/or lucky.

Hit detection on infantry is broken too. 50/50 i shoot someone in the torso and it does not register. I am also sick of been thrown around and off the edges of buildings and slopes. Why is it impossible to get out of water when it shouldn't be?

Other than that the game plays really well when both teams know what they are doing. The problems are mostly down to the horrible engine.

UE forever!

A suggestion.
When playing FH2,add [RO] in the prefix field in front of your name,in the login window so we can recognize each other with more ease if we happen to meet on a server.
Also,if you feel like some more tactics and organization you're welcome to join the Core TS(eurots4.clanservers.com:8770) and head for the FH2 room.
I'll be on XFire (kapula) if I'm online so just shoot me a message if you're up for a game.

I've had some great games on the US tactical gamer server. Just join a VOIP or teamwork squad and you actually get people working together. I remember one game of Tobruk we actually came close to winning as Axis. That map is fun and all but very hard for axis to win. Maybe too many people camping the stukas, not sure why they get popped out of the air in 2 sec.

The game play of FH2 is so different to RO! I really enjoy the game, I like the sound and animation of the tank, especially the suspension of vehicles, when driving the tank, I can feel its heaviness, and the engine is very noisy and realistic! The animation of the High Explosive 75mm is way better than RO's, The air support is fun and amazing, but I think it is quite true that there is a lack of teamwork(communication) in this game.

Yeah you are spot on when you say tanks "feel" heavy. I drove the matilda for the first time and it really felt like a lumbering beast. I also like how splash damage works in the BF2 engine compared to RO. In RO any tiny dip in terrain or some flimsly pile of wood can save you from HE. In FH the concussion from HE damages infantry through most walls plus it suppresses the hell out of them. Seriously I don't think I can tank in RO again after seeing how well done tanks are in FH. They feel like a real threat on the battlefield as they should be.

I can't connect to half the servers. As soon as i join a game i instantly get the message "There is a problem with your connection" and it boots me back to the crappy server browser. The problem has spilt over into vanilla BF2 as well. I can successfully connect to about 1 in 5 servers.

I have changed nothing to my system except create a new account which i then reverted to my old account and the problem still persisted. I have opened ports on my router, upgraded the firmware, deleted my Windows XP profile and then formatted my hard drive to no avail.

This sucks as i was really getting into this. The last thing to try is a old PCI ADSL modem.

All my other games and apps work fine though.

It might be a server issue with that 50/50 hit thing. I remember shooting a guy 3 times with the K98 on Battle for Sfakia and he still managed to rush at me only to get run through with my bayonet.

I fixed this issue by turning my my routers firewall setting to 'medium'. Never had to do this before with BF2 so something has broken recently.

Yeah as far as the feel and sounds of tanks, FH2 got it spot on. One of my disappointments with RO was the mono silencer tanks :p. You don't even hear them till they are 5 feet away. Where as in FH2, you can hear those noisy bastards rolling around.

Agree! Tanking in RO is like controlling some model tank, the sound is terrible and unrealistic, but the armor penetration system of RO is greatest of its kind.
If suspension ,louder engine noise and better H.E effect is added to RO, the game will become perfect!but it is impossible and already too late.

Anyway, using the skill I learned from RO, I was able to knock out 4-5 enemy's tank without dying and to rape my opponent's spawn point with the H.E round.:rolleyes::D[SIZE=-1][/SIZE]

It carries the same annoying features and problems over from vanilla BF2. When you get a good game with a decent squad its excellent but you always drop on a server full of tards with diving to prone riflers, bunny hoppers and some cock sat outside of your spawn with a tank.
