BF2 Installation and connection Guide (BF2Hub)
« on: October 27, 2017, 18:14:33 PM »
Installation:

Using the old Revive installer (still working after Revive shutdown):
Screenshots
  • Download the BF2 Revive installer (additional mirrors and information here).
  • Extract Release.zip then run Setup.exe.
  • Choose an install location then click Install.
  • At the 'Completing the BattleField 2 - Battlelog.co Setup Wizard' screen ensure that the 'Enter license key' and 'Update PunkBuster now' options are checked then click Finish.
  • In the 'Battlefield 2 :: Key Manager' window enter your BF2 key or click 'Random'. Afterwards click 'Apply' then 'Close'.
  • Wait for PunkBuster to update. When you see the 'Finished with update.' messagebox click 'OK' and the install is complete.
  • See the Launcher Options section below to enable online play.

An alternate method:
(click to show/hide)



Launcher options:
BF2Hub:
Screenshots
  • Download and install the BF2Hub Client
  • Run the BF2Hub Client.
  • Click the BF2Hub Client icon in your system tray (by the clock).
  • Click 'Battlefield 2 on this computer'.
  • Click 'Patch Selected'.
  • When the 'Battlefield 2 on this computer' subtext says, "(v1.5, Client and Server are BF2Hub-ready)" your game is patched and ready to play.
  • Launch the game by running BF2.exe in your Battlefield2 install directory.
  • At the login screen use your BF2Hub account to login. You can create a new BF2Hub account on the BF2Hub website or in-game at the login-screen by clicking 'Manage Accounts' then 'Create Account'.
    • You can safely remove BF2Hub from your startup programs. If you do, you'll need to launch BF2Hub manually before starting BF2 or you will not be able to login.

Playing on NRNS servers:
At the BF2 main screen click 'Multiplayer' in the top bar. Type 'NRNS' into the 'Server Name' field and press enter. If NRNS servers are not listed they can still be connected to via 'Connect to IP'. Current NRNS server status and IP information can be found on the NRNS homepage.

Yes. The game files are provided in the revive installer. If the revive installer is not working (let us know so we can modify the guide), or if you don't want to use the revive installer, you can still get the files from the 'BF2 Game Files' and patches links in the alternate method.
I am very open to suggestion. If you see an error or room for improvement or just have a comment or query please get in touch with me via forum PM, email, or Discord.
