  • Proper install order?

    Can someone remind me of the correct install order? Building a new PC and doing a clean install.

    The whole shebang BF2..... Special forces, the 2 addons, POE, PR, Tacmod, 1.41 patch..

    Thanks!

    Heh, I had to do this recently in an attempt to get my Secondary Radio Channel back. Didn't work, so I'm going to have to reformat in the hopes of ever calling in arty or getting a special kit in PRM...

    Anyway, here's the order I did:

    1) Vanilla BF2
    2) Special Forces (mine has the 1.1 patch and will run it no matter what)
    3) Full 1.41 patch
    4) Everything else (PRM, POE2, TacMod, Expansion Packs)
    5) Full 1.41 patch again for good measure

    That worked for me.

    I also defragged my hard drive each time I installed something. Install vanilla / defrag. Install SF / defrag. Some people have OCD for locked doors and leaving the stove on. I have OCD about defragging my harddrives...

      Thanks -- I lose key assignments like that once in a while also...

      I keep a backup controls.con and overwrite it whenever it happens. Usually fixes it and if not a reboot usually does.. Odd. Did you delete your profile when you did the reinstall? If not try that and recreate it -- before reformatting!

        Coridon's method looks to be about right. I would follow those to the tee...
