BF2 1.5 Updaate

Recommended Posts

Just got an email from BF2 tracker advising that the 1.5 patch for BF2 hits next week. (Tues 1st September)

Interestingly they have said that the previously paid booster packs Euro Forces & Armored Fury are now free. (Sweet!)

 

 

Hello auditri,

 

as a registered member of Battletracker.com (formerly known as BF2Tracker) and active Battlefield2 Player we would like to inform you that the final BF2 Patch v1.50 is coming Tuesday September 1st!

 

After nearly a year of development and three public beta tests Battlefield 2 v1.50 is ready for release! The update will be released on Tuesday 1st September at 5pm UK, 6pm Europe.

 

As part of Update 1.50 we are glad to announce that not only is Highway Tampa now a required install included in the update but Euro Forces (Great Wall, Taraba Quarry and Operation Smoke Screen) and Armored Fury (Midnight Sun, Operation Harvest and Operation Road Rage) is now FREE for all Battlefield 2 players. Including the brand new map, Operation Blue Pearl this brings EIGHT new maps that everyone can play and will be added to ranked Battlefield 2 servers world wide. The Booster Pack content is included in the update and has made the file just over 2Gb in size.

 

For more information and a detailed list of changes in this patch, take a look at our news-article in the forums:

* Updated the G36E HUD to react the same as other weapons during sprint

2 gigabyte patch.

 

What the fuck.

At least it's not that ARMA II update I had that demanded to redownload the entire game .... all 8GB of it. For one patch. Which the non-steam version had a 100MB patch for.

 

.. Yeah. GG ARMA II devs.

 

 

But hopefully this will give BF2 a popularity spike - we're planning on running a few games of it at the next Respawn.

Its for good reason orcone, they're giving away all the booster packs free as part of the update and all that content has to get down somehow! Stop complaining at hit your ISP's freeleech ;)

Might give it a bash, which means ill need to download it from EA Download manager again, fail -.-

Didn't you back up your EADm cache to DVD or something nuke?

Also found this http://forums.electronicarts.co.uk/battlef...ate-1-50-a.html

Q.

Will the no DVD patch be delivered as an extra addon or will we never see this?

A.

It is part of Update 1.50. There is no extra patch or file needed.

 

q.

Have you removed the notorious registration of the boosters to one account?

Is it now just installing patch 1.5 and then play them?

A.

Install the patch and any account that can play Battlefield 2 can play the Booster Pack maps. No need to link your BF2 soldier to EA.

That wasn't Bohemia's problem, that was Steam's... who are also changing the way they do their game updates to stop this from happening in the future, apparently.

ill probably have to get a new handel i cant rember mine.

Launch the game go to manage accounts >retrieve account and use the email address you used to create the player account.

Otherwise you could try https://login.gamespyid.com/login.aspx?r

Put in your email address and password or use the forgot password option if you can't remember it. Your BF2 player name is actually a gamespy ID, if you didn't know that.

1.5 download locations.

Internode

Gamearena

Gamespace

 

and probably lots of others.

Remember Game must be patched up to 1.41 before installing this patch.

and that given the size of the patch you will need at least 4Gb free disk space to install it.
