Just totally ruined my ability to play offline. I play offline quite a bit to increase my skills... especially recon and now I can't even do that. Worked just fine before the patch. That sucks. I'm going to try reinstalling the game. Anyone else have a similar problem?

Well the new patch is not perfect (I mean its EA FFS!) but its a hell of alot more stable and you can now CTRL ALT DELETE out of the game without it locking up.

Its alot better, and with BF3 already in dev. the franchise will continue. Others have tried but the share playablility draws you back. Only thing to knock this might be UT3.

Hey guys I found this...

http://www.thestrategists.net/modules.php?name=Forums&file...w=previous

Believe it or not, this actually worked. I was playing without a problem. Weird... Anyways, the game is still fun to me. I have Battlefield 2, but Battlefield 2142 was the first Battlefield series game that I ever purchased. I do play Battlefield 2 every now and again, but I play BF2142 much more. And yeah, sometimes it does suck watching a full clip of ammo go into an enemy and have them then proceed to run up and knife you. Or how sometimes, it takes someone like 2 shots from an AR and you're dead. Once again... Weird...

What the Battlefield 2142 patch? You don't have to download it exclusively from fileplanet. I forget where I get mine, just google "Battlefield 2142 1.40 patch."

BF2 at this stage is just a PURE HAX ZONE. I am a capt in the game and went back to play it and it is soo bad. Especially that WAKE ISLAND plane rape map.

BF2142 is a much better game and harder too, I have 158,000 global points in 2142 and I play it every night for about 3/4 hrs.

Ha, well there's a different opinion. Most say they like BF2 way better for some reason. I like BF2142 way better.

Btw, I just got finished playing and in one round, I emptied 3 shot gun rounds into a guy (and these were good, solid, square hits, AT CLOSE RANGE! Know what I mean?) and he still ends up killing me. That p**sed me off, but I think I have to share the blame with some of that. Afterall, I am on a wireless network connection. I've been thinking about drilling 2 holes in the floor, one in my bedroom, and the other in my dad's office and running some network cable up under the house. What you guys think? I hear wireless networking sucks for gaming anyway. Just thought I'd ask.

That's just the Battlefield engine. All your weapons are completely inaccurate unless you sit still for about 15 seconds. If that confrontation lasted less than 15 seconds, he was probably aiming poorly and therefore hit. That's why I never liked the Battlefield series (don't reward people for great aiming).

Connection speeds won't make any difference. I noticed that same effect on 10/100 LAN.

More like 15 bullets lol. If you do some short burst then the recoil won't be enough to deflect your aim. The only thing that makes me want to spray are those damn Recon Hoppers that throw RDX and kill an entire team. >:o

I like BF2 a little bit mroe than BF2142 since the BF2 engine makes the game feels more solid, has the best sound I've ever heard from guns and such, I can walk pass a little hill or a little train rail better than in BF2142 and I can move very fast and be a great medic thanks to the solid movements. What I hate about BF2142 is that it sometimes looses connection with EA master server which it makes my blood boil, I can't play with Ultra High settings even though I have an X-fi Xtreme Music, it feels laggy, I can't walk, run or move as well as I do in BF2. But since it has the awesome futuristic approach and the EMP explosions which sound wonderful I still like it a lot.

I don't use the shotgun much but It hasn't happened to me, maybe you weren't that close or some of the pellets from the shell missed him? :/ Besides I feel rewarded when I revive 3 or 4 fallen soldiers with my Medic and kill off some enemy and capture a flag. It makes me feel important lol.

That's why I emphasized close range. He wasn't even a good meter away from me and you know the little icon that pops up around your reticle when you hit someone? I saw it all three times. It bugs me out.
