    Full Guide

    Introduction

    The Battlefield 2 Demo has arrived, and is available for download from a range of places. It weighs in at almost 560MB, and you can find out more about it at the Official BF2 Site. The demo has one playable map called 'Gulf of Oman', which can be played in single or multiplayer modes.

    I've prepared this short guide as a quick way of putting together all the known tips and tweaks for getting the BF2 Demo up and running with a minimum of fuss. I will then update the guide in the next few days as I discover more tweaks, culminating in a complete Battlefield 2 Tweak Guide shortly after the full version of the game is released at the end of June.

    This one is a lifesaver:

    Disabling the Intro Movies



    The introductory movies to BF2 are quite annoying, and generally increase startup times for the game. To disable them, you should not delete the movie files - this may cause problems with Punkbuster. Instead, simply rename the relevant files in your \Program Files\EA Games\Battlefield 2 Demo\mods\bf2\Movies\ directory to something else (e.g. rename dice.bik to dice.backup). The files to rename are: demo_b2legal.bik, demo_bf2release.bik, demo_demolegaltext.bik, demo_locknload.bik, dice.bik, EA.bik and Nvidia_logo.bik. This will mean the intro movies are all skipped as BF2 starts to load.



    If for any reason you experience any problems with the above method, you can download and use the blank movie files from here: SkipIntroBF2.zip (2KB) instead. Backup your movie files first, then extract the contents of this .zip file into your \movies directory.

      Does anyone know what movies to rename for the retail version?

        Mm, I just finished going through this guide. I highly recommend it. Only part that I couldn't complete was indepth Video card settings using CCC. I can't find it, but it's fine. The XP tweaks seem to have helped my computer a lot. Thanks for posting that.

          Dice.bik
          EA.bik
          Legal.bik

          and if you want, but it's not necessary as you can hit ESC to skip it:

          Intro.bik
          "Hardly used" will not fetch a better price for your brain.
