It has had coop since release.
You just had to connect to the IP of someone playing singleplayer..
But I take it they have some options and stuff for it now?

Yep, it looks like it has all of the Co-Op settings that were in bf1942. That was a hell of a lot of fun, so this is going to be great :)

Nice, I hope it allows you to start bigger then 16 player maps aswell, so you get planes, choppers and stuff.

The air drop car is cool (and does help!). On a side note ... EA has YET TO FIX ANY REAL ISSUES!!! For example... the Red name or wrong skin bug. The parachute bug.... oh... and lets not forget the medic paddle bug. All 3 of the biggies are still there. *sigh*

Duh... the co op settings are retarded. :|

You can only choose 16 player maps and you can only have up to 32 players total. Why the hell do they keep limiting s***??? There is NO reason they need to do this. Battlefield 1942 ran like crap with 64 bots, but when the computers could eventually handle it, it was a BLAST to play. Now, they just make it so you cant do s*** and you have to play online or they neuter the game.

I usually prefer playing offline because its lag free and I dont have to deal with assholes or internet problems (not to mention tearing my hair out trying to find and connect to a server). Theres no god damned reason they need to tell me I cant play the full game offline. Its like they give us an offline demo included with an online only game.

:thumbdwn:

Are there any hacks or mods for this? I dont usually play this game much any more because its such a pain in the ass to play anything online these days. Id probably get a lot more out of it if they'd just let me play the damned thing the way its meant to be played offline.



Im a tad irritated if you couldnt tell...

EDIT: Heres a mod that allows 64 size maps in single player:

It also includes BF2 SP Bot Changer 2.1 which is a nifty little program that allows you to set up to 255(!) bots for single player, as well as the bot skill level. Heres a pic of it:

Thanks to the mod community, Im no longer pissed at this game... I hope it still works with the new version of the game ;)

Check this out folks.

Even the EA Forum moderator is on the "OMGZ THIS SUCKS" wagon, and a petition to get this game in order has well over 10,000 signatures already. LMFAO ....biggest balls up ever.

I aint buying BF 2142... no chance.

Yeah, what the hell are they doing?

Some additions are good, but its obvious they dont even play test this crap.

I also get graphical glitches in this version. I havent played the game in a while, but I know for sure that I didnt have these problems last time. It just looks like random pixel blotches on the interface. It isnt artifacting either, its a permanent "speck" on various parts of the interface. The UAV spinning image on the commander map has yellow dots all over it.

The server browser is totaly broken AGAIN. If I click a server it either zeros out the ping or sets it to 252542. And there isnt a refresh button. So basically, the server browser is useless. It says 40 servers have 75 ping but if you go to any of them you get pretty much random pings. Refreshing them would usually give you a better idea of the pings, but you cant do that any more.

Seriously, these guys need to get a freaking clue. I know everyone keeps blaming EA for everything, but whoever is actually letting this happen to this game needs to just stop. Im glad they balanced some things out before, but there are still things that need work and a few nasty bugs that need fixed. The gameplay additions are kinda cool but they should NOT take priority over the fixes.

This is deffinitely not making me want 2142 any more than I did. Before I played tonight I was thinking of picking up the Special Forces expansion. Screw that... I bought Euro Forces a few months ago and I've barely gotten any game time in because it takes 2 hours to get into a game after all of the f***ing around with the server browser and irritatingly long log-in time.

Bleh...

seriously - i've HAD it with that game browser. it's NEVER worked right, only become slightly less annoying and then REALLY ******* ANNOYING after certain patches.

and yeah - the fact that you can now drop a truck on a helo spawn and destroy the helo before anyone gets in it is REALLY forward thinking.

Yeah the most irritating thing about the server browser is that you HAVE to use it. If you try to use an external one like ASE (all seeing eye), you have to deal with a 2 or 3 minute wait every time to log in, and 90% of the time it doesnt even do anything, it just logs into the game and sits at the menu.

If I could actually play this game without getting pissed I would just deal with the gameplay issues. But by the time I get into a game Im already at the end of my rope.

Try having less then 6 of the checkboxes checked. It fixes the server browser for some wierd reason. The server browser used to work fine for me but now it keeps refreshing the list and changing the order of the servers around.

This game sounds like CSS. Every time they patch it they break something. The stupid favorites list in CSS is a perfect example. Mine still doesn't work. And how long has that game been out for now? Ridiculous.

How do you access the single player bots in BF2 using the new patch by the way?? Is it thru multiplayer or single player??

You mean the co-op mode?

Go to multiplayer, create server (something like that...) and then choose the game type as cooperative.

Thanx!! Incidentally the issues with the server browser is supposedly something on their end that they are fixing to resolve. Go here to read:http://www.ea.com/official/battlefield/battlefield2/us/editorial.jsp?src=communityupdate_052506

Hmm... well thats very good.

I hope they get it worked out.

I know they cant be totaly incompitent, the game is good, its just a matter of how long it will take them to get things just right.

I'll continue to wait.

I think I must be almost done with Call of Cthulhu (LONG freaking game... at least the first time through) but this one is deffinitely holding me over gaming-wise. I highly HIGHLY recommend this game. I havent played a game like this since Undying or Realms of The Haunting. Fantastic game.

BUY IT!
