  • How to get BF2 patch 1.5 beta going --- without messing up PR



    BF2 1.5 beta is out (1.3gb)
    http://www.totalgamingnetwork.com/ma...d.php?t=190756

    BF2 1.5 beta is not compatible with PR that runs on 1.41

    If you install this on your regular BF2 game then you will not be able to uninstall and will have to wipe BF2 and start again

    ... solution is ...
    • goto C:\Program Files\EA GAMES\Battlefield 2
    • copy the whole of the 'Battlefield 2' folder and rename it 'Battlefield 2 1.41' (can take 15 mins to copy)
    • then run the beta patch (1.3Gb) , it applies to the folder 'Battlefield 2' and leaves the folder 'battlefield 2 1.41' alone
    • you can now try the beta map
    • when you want to go back to PR then rename the folders
    • rename 'Battlefield 2' to 'Battlefield 2 1.5'
    • rename 'Battlefield 2 1.41 ' to 'Battlefield 2'
    • the desktop shortcut will now run PR again
    • you can then rename folders to switch between games, the desktop shortcut always points at the folder 'Battlefield 2'

    Awesome, any good features or changes in 1.5 for pr possibly?


    If you find yourself in a fair fight, then you have obviously failed to plan properly.

        The delay from jump to prone was upped from 0.3 seconds to 0.7 seconds. You basically end up hitting the ground before it lets you prone.




        I took poe2 and pr out and bf2 is only 2gb big now, is that right? I know its old but I thought it was as big as a dvd basically

          Excellent! I'm copying my BF2 folder and downloading the torrent at the same time. Will continue to seed until I think to stop it (a few days probably).

            dolphin diving is not really fixed in 1.5....

            they changed a value from 0.3 to 0.7

            the value is already 2 in PR....

                *facepalm* I guess this is pretty much our last hope, except for the source being released in 25 years. Hehe...

                  1.5gb for a patch and you would think EA would have contacted Black Sand Studios in regards to PR, hell PR is advertised on the 'nilla main menu screen.

                  But seriously 1.5gbs for a patch, i just hope i never have to install this, or at least it will give me ample time to save up some money and buy some memory before i do it.

                    I 'm pretty sure the PR devs changed this so they can put their own messages on your screen. It 's probably something that wasn't planned to be modded by EA/DICE so it changes for all mods. Like the splash screen you can download for PR, which also shows up when you launch 'nilla :).

                      No, they've been promoting PR in 'nilla for a while now. Of course, the picture shown is an A-10 flying high over Kashan...hmmm.

                          Ok my bad :). It just felt unreal that EA/DICE would promote a MOD...

                            Bout time they started really.

                            Ive been playing HL1 (and mods) and HL2( and mods) since they were both released. The amount of support Valve gives the mod community is unrivaled.

                            Prime example is CS. Anyone remember the first few releases? Christ, id love to play those again.

                            Bring back the over powered FNP90 and planting the bomb where ever the hell you liked! :D
