Well me and some Battlefield-loving Giantbombers have been talking, and we thought that  in honor of the Battlefield franchise, and the long awaited and hyped-as fuck-Battlefield 3, we wanna get people to install their BF2 and 2142 copies and get bombing runs in those good old games going :) . 
Alot of us PC folk already own one of those two, if not the two. and if you dont, they're quite cheap on the EA Store.. im buying 2142 just for this 
please, no BF2 vs. 2142 hatred. they're both amazing Battlefield games and the feud is a thing of the past now  
    
If you're interested, drop a comment so we can start these exciting bombing runs soon..    
 Please add your steam name, and BF2 / BF 2142 name(s) to avoid confusion ^^     




Technical Zone (thanks to MrKlorox for his great and comprehensive help on this) :

The basic idea is to  

  1.  buy vanilla BF2 / vanilla 2142,   
  2.  patch BF2 to 1.41, then to 1.5 and you're ready to go 
  3.  patch BF 2142 to 1.5 at once, and you're ready to go. (the 1.51 patch hasnt been made official yet, so dont use it for now)
  4. 2 EA threads to help with any installation issues:  Thread 1 ,  Thread 2
   

2142:  If you own Northern Strike, don't worry about installing and updating that because the servers will update to the recently finalized 1.51 patch soon which includes the NS maps. But you should probably wait until DICE announces the patch officially before updating so you'll have enough servers to play on.

Punkbuster is kind of bitchy when updating itself and sometimes you need to do it manually.

FUCKING HELL YA 

#3 Posted by NikFreaX (36 posts) -

Fuck yes I am in.

#4 Posted by Jack268 (3387 posts) -

I've got BF2 on Steam. It's a shame you can't use the overlay UI because of stupid punkbuster but yeah, I'd be down for this.

#5 Edited by mmzOne (278 posts) -

GBSquads is go.
 
Edit: And by go, I mean 2142.

#6 Posted by gjedwards (102 posts) -

im in!

#7 Edited by MrKlorox (11209 posts) -

Dude, yes! I'm totally down for either, but lean toward 2142.
 
Steam: MrKlorox
BF2: MrKlorox
BF2142: MrKlorox
 
For folks that don't already own BF2, you can also get it on Steam if you demand it to be. But it's only the Complete Collection which costs $20 USD, whereas the EA Store offers the regular version for $10 USD. The only difference between the two is the Special Forces expansion pack since BF2 patch 1.50 included all the booster map packs for free in the regular version.
 
Also if you already own BF2 or 2142 on disc, you should be able to enter your cd key in the EA Downloader and add it to your account so you don't have to worry about finding your disc if lost or replacing it if scratched over time.
 
And BF2142 version 1.51 patch just went final earlier this week which will also include the Northern Strike booster map pack for free. So if you're looking at getting 2142, get the non-deluxe version if you can get it cheaper. And if you already own 2142, you're getting upgraded to deluxe. http://forums.electronicarts.co.uk/battlefield-2142/1388599-battlefield-2142-v1-51-a.html  
 
edit: The recommended install order for 2142 is Base then directly install the 1.50 full update. If you own Northern Strike, don't worry about installing and updating that because the servers will update to the recently finalized 1.51 patch soon which includes the NS maps. But you should probably wait until DICE announces the patch officially before updating so you'll have enough servers to play on.

#10 Posted by KaosAngel (13765 posts) -

I can do BF2, but I never liked 2142...not a fan of Sci-Fi.

#11 Posted by HarlequinRiot (1098 posts) -

I don't have a copy anymore, but I'm seriously considering buying another one now. 

#12 Posted by bwat47 (33 posts) -

Loved bf2142, wish they would release the damn patch already. Was planning on buying it again when the patch + steam release for it happens (lost my copy a few years ago)

#13 Posted by Evilsbane (4735 posts) -

Gonna dig for my disc I'm in.

#14 Posted by RandomInternetUser (6789 posts) -

Steam is "mitchparris" and I have BF2.  I think I'm xobballox in game on BF2.  

#15 Posted by FrankCanada97 (4039 posts) -

I had trouble trying to update 2142 a couple of months ago. Maybe I'll try again.

#16 Posted by Rockanomics (1150 posts) -

Man, I have been looking for a reason to play BF2, game was so dopetactular.

The 1.51 beta 2 patch went final on the first. The servers will switch over soon. With Steam version to follow.
 
edit: 1.51 beta2 was causing some issues with some RSPs. DICE are releasing another, actual final 1.51 patch Tuesday, February 15th.
edit2: 1.51 final is out.

Yeah, they added it in 1.5 I believe.
 
Anyway, I might be up for a few rounds of BF2, schedule permitting.

Patch 1.50 KILLS dolphin diving and prone spamming due to a short period of bullet deviation once you hit prone.
#31 Posted by B0nd07 (1701 posts) -

Sounds interesting.  I actually never uninstalled BF2 (not sure if it's fully patched though).  Still got '42 installed too. 
 
BF2 name: NotWolf

#32 Posted by harris (848 posts) -

Sounds like fun! 
 
I probably won't be able to locate my BF2 CD key, though :\

#33 Posted by KaosAngel (13765 posts) -

I just played a round, and it kicked me due to Punkbuster.  I got 3 kills though with SpecOps.   
 
I heard it's a Steam thing, how do I not get kicked?

#34 Posted by Fattony12000 (7558 posts) -

Hmmm...I have BF2.

#35 Posted by Toms115 (2317 posts) -

i've never played battlefield before but w.e. i'll go see how much it runs on steam.

#36 Posted by KaosAngel (13765 posts) -

How the fuck you toggle crouch in BF2?  I never noticed it in BC2 due to it already being set like that...wow times have changed.

#37 Posted by Khann (2913 posts) -

Keen for both.. have to dig out my BF2 key.. but I have my 2142 DVD here. 
 
I'll probably lagg like a son-of-a-bitch being in New Zealand, but I don't care. 
 
Steam name is mokhann.

is it the steam version ? 
 
 
@Toms115 said:

costs 20 bucks on steam (complete edition) , 10 bucks on EA store (basic). 
but since the 1.5 patch includes whatever the fuck the complete edition gives you, buy the cheap EA Store version and just patch :)

Z for prone and Ctrl for crouch..? or is it C ? i forgot
#39 Posted by KaosAngel (13765 posts) -
@Ahmad_Metallic: Yes on the Steam, and LControl is crouch...but it's hold only.  Can't find the toggle option.

God I would love to give this a go.  However being in Australia, I have no idea if I am up when you guys start.  If the time is similar to the TNT times, then perhaps I can join in, however I cannot guarantee if I will lag horribly or not.

#41 Posted by Scrawnto (2465 posts) -

I'm down for some BF2. My Steam name is Mennuti and my BF2 name is Chalupacabra.
