WAN/LAN servers

(Posted on Friday July 25th, 2014 by Kramerika)

Here are the internet servers that we will potentially use for the WAN/LAN party starting tonight. We do have LAN servers that internet players can join as well, but will depend on how many people are on the LAN side versus the WAN side. Except for MvM, we will try to play out to the internet servers first to give us more potential for others to join there since our internal bandwidth is more limited. We will find a BF2 server when we play.

LAN/WAN party rough schedule of games, get prepared

(Posted on Thursday July 24th, 2014 by Kramerika)

Below is the rough schedule of games to start with tomorrow's LAN/WAN party and what you need to have installed to participate. This schedule is tentative to be changed depending on issues that might arise or just sheer boredom or having fun. The maps listed below are suggestions, and for games like BF1942 and BF2 where we may not be on our own server, we would be at the whim of the server we are using. We will most likely try to use our internet servers as long as we have more WAN players than LAN players. The only exception will be MvM which we will have LAN servers internal but that WAN players can join.

We will be communicating using Mumble, STEAM, and Origin, so make sure to be on one of them to keep informed if you are joining from the WAN side of things. See this post for more info:

Get BF2 installed for the LAN/WAN

(Posted on Wednesday July 23rd, 2014 by Kramerika)

Since GameSpy shut their servers down last week, BF2 multiplayer has not been playable without the help of some third-party software. Here is a breakdown of what you need to do to play BF2 multiplayer.

#1 Register your BF2 account name here:

They will try to retrieve your stats/unlocks/etc. at some point. If you cant remember what your exact nickname was, just use your usual nickname, no tag needed as you can add that in the game.

#2 Download the launcher here:

You will need to login first to download it. Once you download it, install it into your BF2 game folder whether it be STEAM, Origin, or CD/DVD. Make sure to choose the path to your BF2 folder when installing it! If you are using the game from CD/DVD, make sure that your game is patched to 1.41 and then 1.5. Origin and STEAM versions are already at version 1.5. Create a shortcut to BF2RLite.exe (which should be in your BF2 folder) on your desktop.

#3 Launch the game and start single player first then shut the game down.

#4 Follow this guide to copy your single player profile to a multiplayer profile including your login details.

#5 Launch the game using the shortcut to BF2RLite and log in.

#6 The account with your multiplayer username should be there now, enter your password and use it to connect and view the server browser.

If you have issues, post them here, and we can try to trouble shoot them.
