  • Desktop Icon?

    This is the first time I've downloaded a game through the EA Store using the Download Manager.

    Now that I've got it, is there no way to get a desktop icon that directly starts the game? It seems the only way I can play is to first go open up the download manager.

    Not a huge deal, but if I had known that, I would have just purchases a physical copy.

    From my little EA download manager knowledge, is there not a shortcut somewhere in your Start menu? I'm sure there was for a copy of 2142 I had through EADM.

      This bugged me too.. and there is nothing in the startmenu unfortunately:/ But there is an easy fix to it.. Go to the game folder, mine is C:\games\Electronic Arts\Battlefield Bad Company 2 right click on the BFBC2Game.exe and create a shortcut, place on your desktop. Done:P

        I'll give that a try. Thanks.

        Related, my one complaint thus far (well with the exception of not being able to connect to a multiplayer server, but I'm a patient type and realize that it will be fixed shortly) is how long it takes to actually get into the game and start playing. I can double click on my BF2 or 2142 desktop icons and literally be in-game and playing within a minute. It seems to be a much more cumbersome process with BC2.

          I bought the hard copy and didn't get an icon either. Although it's not in the start menu under EA or Electronic Arts, it's in my default "Games" folder. First thing I did was make a desktop icon. :P

            Apparently you can remove the startup videos..
