What the muck is the current patch for Battlefield 2????
« on: August 24, 2009, 04:49:46 pm »
I'm trying to get this mofo started and so I went from a full install of 1.4 to a full install of 1.41 and the damn servers are still coming up all red???? Is it on the Beta 1.5 patch or what? If it is 1.41 I'm going to try installing it one more time and going from factory version to 1.41. If that don't work then piff IT RAWR!

But no seriously what is the current patch number?

Oh yeah and I'm running it on Vista, any tips for that? And please do me a favor and save your smart ass, get a better operating system remarks because I don't want to hear it. Some of us have College bills to pay and no I'm not going to pirate XP. Either way I don't want to go through the hassle of installing another OS on my laptop.

Currently I got BF2 running in Admin\XP compatibility mode when I start. I just want to know if there is anything else I can do to make it run more smoothly. Also for some reason I can't install the VOIP Server thingy to my PC (I'm assuming that its because of Vista). Anyone find a way to get that installed?

Thx m8s

Why would you need the VOIP "Server"?

BF2 is 1.5. PR uses 1.41 though. If you want to play PR you can't play BF2. (why the piff someone would WANT to play BF2 is beyond me though)

A. I like BF2
B. People still play the 1.41 servers
C. Don't you need VOIP to use a mic in a game?

VOIP comes installed with BF2, you don't need to install a VOIP server.  I've played in 1.41 servers so they are still around.

Yeah I was playing 1.41 all day and I found out that Vista can't use BF2's VOIP...

I guess I got VOIP install or whatever because I was just like wth might as well try it so I hit B and bam it worked. I'm guessing that most of the active BF2 servers are running 1.41 because I don't see too many red servers not using my same version so I guess I might try Project Reality, I just don't like that the mod is 3 god damn gigs almost.

Well it is an entirely different game, with better textures and better maps. Considering that new games like Arma2 are like 10 gigs.. I don't think it's that much to ask for.

You probably won't like PR if:

-You can't handle not shooting at someone for a stretch of more than 5 minutes (sometimes you are required to walk somewhere that's far, or the enemy is not where you thought they were, etc)

-You don't like to be stealth, or use planning and would rather just run and gun

-You don't want to play for at least an hour at a time

The game isn't like insurgency., in the sense where you spawn, and immediately see enemies and start fighting. I have gone games (1-2 hours per map) without kills, I have also had some of the most intense firefights and action I've ever experience in a video game. It all depends on who is your Squad Leader, and what his plan is. If you have a poor SL, you will have a poor experience in PR.

I suggest you get on with us one time and get in a game. This is probably the best way to start in PR.

If you download the PR files via torrent it goes a lot faster then web browser.
And VOIP works on x64 vista. The setup thing doesn't always work but it should work in-game without running the setup.
