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:

http://battlelog.co/register.php

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.

#2 Download the launcher here:

http://battlelog.co/downloads.php#

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.

Communication/coordination for the LAN/WAN this coming weekend

(Posted on Tuesday July 22nd, 2014 by Kramerika)

Our LAN/WAN starts this coming Friday evening. The current rough schedule of games and times can be found in the post linked below. I plan to post more about the schedule and games in the next day or so once I figure out the status of BF2.

To communicate and coordinate between the LAN and WAN participants, we will use the same methods as we have used for our previous WAN events in the winter and spring:

#1 Mumble (voice comm)

If you do not yet have Mumble installed or our Mumble server as a favorite, see the following post to get it installed and connected.

#2 STEAM friends

I will be on STEAM the entire time, so you can either join on me for Valve games or drop me a note to check on where we are playing a game like Battlefield 1942. I am already friends with most of you, but if not, feel free to send me a friend request here:

#3 Origin friends

I will be on Origin the entire time as well, so you can drop me a note to check on where we are playing.  My Origin name is Kramerika if I am not on your friends list.

Looking forward to seeing all of you there whether in person or online!

Get BF1942 installed for the LAN/WAN

(Posted on Friday July 18th, 2014 by Kramerika)

Early next week I will be posting a rough schedule of times and games for the LAN/WAN party next weekend. If you are curious now, you can see the following post:

http://www.osfhome.c...e=2#entry108231

In the meantime, there is one game that you can get installed and ready to go, and this one is for everyone now for FREE, Battlefield 1942. You do not need to have the disks or have it on Origin although either of those will work as well. If you do install it from disk, make sure that you get it patched to the latest version with these two patches.

http://www.gamershel...load_7710.shtml

However, there is an easier way to get the game now including Road to Rome and Secret Weapons. In fact, even if you already have the game on disk or through Origin, it might be a good idea to download these files for backup. The Origin version and free downloadable version linked below already includes the patches for the disk version above.

If it freezes when you try to update the server list and then comes up with nothing, you will need to download and copy the modded BF1942.exe file at one of these links depending on which version you have installed.

The servers will be up later on Sunday.  You will have to join these servers by manually adding them to your favorites or by joining on someone already in the server. We will most likely pursue the ever-elusive victory on ghost town again as a tune-up for what could be many attempts to conquer it during our LAN/WAN party next weekend.
