    reinstal i think is the best option that most have come up with....

          You can try to redownload the patch from a different site and try to reinstall.

            Go in to My Documents\Battlefield 2\dmp and look at the patch log files to see if they tell you anything interesting.

              I too had this issue and is the reasoning why I am no longer playing BF2. I don't want to have to work that hard to just install a patch. I re-downloaded it from multiple sites, reinstalled, reinstalled OS, etc. NOTHING worked for me. Hmm....maybe since this problem is kinda hit or miss we can list our specs and maybe there is a connection some where. Hmmm....I'll help solve the problem, but probably won't be back to BF2.

              In the pursuit of... something.

                The BF2 patch is very compute- and memory-intensive. It will reveal problems with your system that you didn't know you had. Worse, it'll sometimes appear to succeed and leave you with corrupted BF2 files.

                I suggest running Prime95 (http://www.mersenne.org/freesoft.htm) in torture test mode. If it shows failures, then odds are the BF2 patch will, too. You might find that you need to tweak your system (increase memory timings, add voltage, etc.) to overcome the problem.

                    As a final solution, and what I ended up doing, install it on another machine and copy the whole game folder over to yours. I've now got a BF2 installation on the wife's laptop (Which btw isn't able to run the game) that I use just for patching and copying to my computer.

                    Stupid, but it works.

                      Whoa whoa hey, if it works it works, but I'd be careful. You won't get any registry changes if you just copy the folder over, which means you might have more problems when it comes to patching again when a new patch comes out.

                        Not really, if the base install finished OK it'll set up the registry keys as well as your profiles. Ie install BF2 on your main computer, install BF2 on second computer, install SF on second puter, install patch on second puter, copy whole installation to your main machine.

                        Obviously, there's a chance it will fail somewhere along the line, but I haven't yet heard anything useful from EA/Dice that'd let me run the game any other way.

                        Edit:
                        And since no patch has installed for me so far, I'll install the next one on the Wife's machine as well and copy the whole thing over again. If that fails, well, I guess I'm done with BF2.

                          Yeah, I know the base registry stuff is there, but if there's a registry key to track what version you're running there could be trouble.
