View Full Version : BF2 1.12 lag issues
27-11-2005, 12:49 AM
I don't know if anyone else had this, but when I patched to 1.12 my lag and jitter went through the roof. In a surprise move I actually found a solution on the EA site! It's a punkbuster version issue, you need to install the latest:

This patch doesn't seem to have helped much for BF2 (not special forces). Seems more trouble than it's worth! Thanks for the tips!

Well I did pick up a g36e from a medic today and I've been flash banged a couple of times, so the effect is showing . .

the g36e? is that from SF or BF2? i thought BF2's medic already had a G36?

The BF2 medic upgrade is from an m16 to an L85. The "2nd level" Medic upgrade is the G36e, which is a bigger version of the G36c that the Spec Op kits gets at level 1. (Spec Ops gets the SCAR-L)

I had my BF2 patched up to 1.12 - I then installed my SF, and then re-applied the 1.12 patch. Damn, but it caused problems.
The game (either SF or normal BF2) took frikkin' ages to login to the account server, and the interface was laggy as hell. There was also a blank box for the 'message from EA' as well.
It literally took 30 seconds for each screen to display if I clicked on options or anything like that.
It took about 5 minutes to load up a map in single player - tho once in, it was fine.
I decided to try a reinstall to see if that would help - it did.
I renamed my 'My documents\Battlefield 2' dir. Uninstalled SF, then uninstalled BF2 - deleted the remaining Battlefield 2 dir in my games dir. (Who installs their games into Program Files, now honestly!)
I then defragged for good measure (use it/don't use it) then reinstalled BF2, then SF immediately after. Once that was done, I installed the 1.12 patch.
Copied the 'Profiles' and 'Screenshots' folder from the renamed 'My documents\Battlefield 2.orig' folder into the newly created 'My Documents\Battlefield 2' folder.
Started up the game - logged in to the account server very quickly - the message from EA (how annoying!) box was displaying correctly, and the interface responded as it should. Problem solved.

tsk tsk. Trust a linux admin type to stuff around with the Windows File system ;) Don't touch it man! Bill made it that way for a reason, damnit! :p
