OK, I really didn't want to pay the bill again, but... I did. This time, for real. In May 2020, I solemnly swear I will not renew the website subscription, if someone does not want to help out, then.. like a slow knife to the throat, it dies... like that guy in Saving Private Ryan.
I will continue hosting the Teamspeak 3 server, at the address located just to the left of this message, so feel free to pop in there anytime.

REVIVE BF2
Visit reviveBF2.com to view information on what will happen after Gamespy shuts down on June 30th. In theory, reviveBF2 will be the only way you can play the game, but it will change BF2 for the better. They are going to implement a browser-based system much like BF3 and 4.

Please consider donating to them. They may be the only ones keeping our favorite game from dying.

They are still working on the site, but claim to be on schedule at being ready to go by EA shutdown time.

www.revivebf2.com

If you haven't had the time to visit their site and get the lowdown, here is a summary.

They plan to have a patch ready for when EA shuts down. They are making a "launcher" utility that should make this easy.
They will have new server side files that we will need to put on our server, as well.

I cannot get a clear answer from Gameservers.com at this point as to whether I will have the required access privileges to do that.
It is possible that we will change to Unranked status with Gameservers, since the Ranking system will be handled by the group at www.battlelog.co
(Register with them if you want your player stats to live on in their database as EA discontinues the master one)

They announced that Special Forces will be rolled into the patch, much like EA did with Armored Fury into the 1.5 Patch.
This means you will have SF available to play, even if you never purchased or installed it previously, and server's can run SF maps along side vanilla maps, in sequence, which is not possible right now.

Check www.revivebf2.com regularly, they are also posting polls regarding new maps, etc that can be voted on.

Go to www.reviveBF2.com to keep playing BF2.

Anytime this month, you may need their patch to play BF2.
If your game stops working, you will need the patch, and we will patch our server.



Spread the word, everyone!
We have scrolling text in the server about this, big type above the chatbox, a Message on Vent Login, and this section to announce this.
Yet, there are seems to be lots of folks still totally unaware of this.


They will be releasing a patch soon.

the launcher requires .NET Framework v4.

you can google it, or grab the installer here:

http://www.battlelog.co/news.php?id=28

The Launcher has worked fine for many of us.

Important stuff:
1. The Launcher installer needs to know where your BF2 install is, if BF2 is not in a "default" location, you need to choose advanced and direct it to the BF2 Folder.
2. You need .NET Framework v4 for the Launcher to work. It's safe, it's from Microsoft, lol! Installer is in my post above this one.

The launcher should detect when the patch is ready/required to play.
Then I will need to get our gameserver updated with their new files so we can play on!
 :cheers:
