  • EU maps will not load, although installed -- NEW ISSUE

    I know this is a problem others have had, but the usual solution has not worked for me.

    The problem is that when I try to load a multiplayer EF map, I get rejected with a message saying that I do NOT have EU and receive an invitation to buy the boster back, which I have already done.

    Today I deleted BF2 completely (uninstall), but kept my profiles.
    I then reinstalled BF2,
    I then installed patch 1.3,
    installed EF boster pack,
    and re-installed patch 1.3.

    Same issue remains.

    NOTE: my in-game TG accound name is |1st-MIP|E_Male, but my EA Games ACCOUNT (re: game downloader), is empireofmind. I have been told that these names MUST match for the install to work (?) BUT I have no idea how to change my EA account-downloader name (empireofmind) to match my in-game name.

    Help please. Soon I will not be able to play TG if the problem continues...

    I think you have to change the ea downloader account to |1st-MIP|E-Male

      Step by step :)

      1. Open EA downloader and login
      2. Select Battlefield 2: Euro Force™ and click Edit Battlefield 2 Nickname
      3. Login to the EA website
      4. Click the Downloads Info tab
      5. Change both fields to reflect your Battlefield 2 in-game username and click OK!

        When you click on the booster pack link within the downloader, at the top there should be a link to changing your BF2 name.

          Thank you guys. I tried to delete this thread, as soon as I finished it I went back to the problem again, found the solution in the EA games nickname, changed the name to match my TG name, and all works now. Am downloading the AF booster pack so I will be able to join in the killin tonight after my class.

          What a relief.

          Tanks again for the quick reply!

            What happens when your bf2 account name is longer than 16 characters? EA downloader won't let me create an account name with more than 16. So, how can I get the two to match?

            Nevermind.

              I'm in even more of a pickle involving 2 downloader accounts and 2 BF2 accounts. One downloader has EF, the other AF, the one with EF is connected to my good BF2 account, the other (with AF) is connected to a new name I made when it said my name was in use. EA customer supported is helping me. (I did my research, the only way for me to fix it is to have EA manually give one account the privledges for the booster it does not have so I can have both, it's good I used the sane credit card for both accounts).
              The art of war is simple enough. Find out where your enemy is. Get at him as soon as you can. Strike him as hard as you can, and keep moving.

                Your EA username and your BF2 usernames do not have to match. When you buy the booster it will ask you what your EA username is.

                  Thanks Lorian, I figured it out.

                  By the way, for those who are having content modified issues, I installed EU and AF over the full 1.3 patch then reran the full 1.3 patch. I had no troubles last night.

                    YES!!! .. This should be a sticky!!!

                    I'm glad I found this. I hopes it's the resolution to my mapnotauthorized message that I'm getting after installed AF and the FULL 1.3 patch :)

                        Hmm I don't understand, out of the whole list of games, all of them have description 'Trailer' and all theirstatus is 'Ready to Play' What's going on? When I clikc on a game, only the trailer plays and there's no option to change my name in the Edit menu. :(

                        and no, my EA downloader nickname is not the same as my BF2 username since it was already taken.

                          How did you install the booster packs if they are not listed in your downloader?

                          Go to www.battlefield2.com, click on "Login" in the top right corner, login and the page will refresh, now click "My Account" up by where Login used to be. Give it your password again and you'll get to the same page the downloader takes you to. Click on "Downloads Info" and put in the name you use to play BF2 with.

                            Thanks for the help, i'll check out the website. No, everything is listed in the downloader, but everything jsut simply says Ready to Play, even Battlefield 2142, I don't know why...

                            UPDATE: I clicked on My Account, but I don't see Downloads Info, only Member Info, Billing Info, Subscription Info, My Games. Which one allows me to enter my name?
