  • Join Server by Icon Shortcut

    I've had quite a few people ask me how I do this, so here it is:

    Server #1:
    +joinServer 70.86.19.218

    Server #2
    +joinServer 67.19.26.150

    Create new shortcuts for each server and add the above lines.

    It's also a good idea to add an IE icon to your desktop that links you directly to the TG server status page. This way you look at the capacity on both servers to see which one you can join.

    It's no biggie if the server is full, though. BF2 will just tell you it's full and take you back to the main menu, at which time you can manually try and join.

    Maybe this can be added to the client FAQ?

      I think a better alternative is joining from ASE. No need to create shortcuts and you can check out other servers for different games at the same time.

          No, he said "for different games". There's no other servers you can use beside TG's.

            i also recommend ASE and then add the TG servers to one of the favorites. This way you can see the server status, add a pw if needed, and see who is playing currently in the game

            bad idea....dont use IE...firefox all the way. IE=portal for your computer to get infected with spyware/viruses.

            Firefox extensions=amazing

              Some people are having issues with knowing how to add these lines to their shortcuts. I've attached them in a zip here.

                Of course there is! TE has her own server so we can play games you don't host. ;)

                  I support the ASE suggestion also. I've used ASE for a long time. It will automatically do exactly what Telorn is suggesting. The shortcuts worked great until ASE updated to support BF2. Now ASE is all I use.

                        Does this skip the Login procedure and movies for BF2?

                        I know the way to stop movies, just curious.

                        This little program allows you to do that but once you've picked your desired server you still need to Login on BF2, then it will take you to the server you've choosen.

                          You always have to login with the account server.

                            There has to be a way to make BF2 automatically login to a default account with a password save. Nothing pisses me off more than leaving ASE on Busy Server Redial and coming back to a Login prompt and a filled server.
