    Update 1.01 Coming Soon
    That's right, the first Battlefield 2 Update is coming your way very soon. We've kept quiet about this update so far, but today we're going to reveal the major fixes coming with the Update. The best part is, every fix in this update is a result of Community feedback on the demo and retail game release.

    Fixes

    -Fixed issues that caused the Multiplayer Browser to become unresponsive.

    We've added some new functionality and buttons to the Multiplayer Browser that make finding an open game of Battlefield 2 much, much easier. Issues users have encountered involving zero ping servers or browser hangs have all be addressed.

    -Fixed an issue where some game controls were not available to be rebound within the Options menu.

    Some functions previously were not available to be rebound in the Controls Options menus. These items have been added to make rebinding of functions much easier.

    -Fixed a crash with rebinding LMB

    Users who rebind the Left Mouse Button to "Move forward" rejoice!

    With these fixes and more, it should be much easier to get in to a game of Battlefield 2 and that much easier to play it the way you want to play it. Look for this update to be deployed into battle some time next week!

    Linux Server Build
    Many of you have made us aware of issues with the previously released retail Linux server (2442) in both 32-bit and 64-bit environments. DICE has finished work on a replacement build and QA has been working hard to validate something that we can release to the community. Our goal is to get a fully operational version of the Linux server out to the Community ASAP. Stay tuned to this spot for updates.

    BF2 Editor Update
    Those of you who have been watching this space over the last couple of weeks are aware the BF2 Editor was intended to be released to the Community by the end of June. While we feel we are on the homestretch now in terms of being able to release a complete Battlefield 2 Mod Development Toolkit, we will not be able to meet our previously stated goal. At this time, we are committed to getting the Open Beta of the Battlefield 2 Editor released some time in July. Stay tuned to this space for more details.

    Advanced Tactical Center for Battlefield 2 Releasing!
    Tomorrow marks the initial release to the community of a tool built by Foolish Entertainment especially for Battlefield 2 - the Advanced Tactical Center for Battlefield 2. This easy to use tool allows your clan to communicate tactics easily and evolve them together in real time! There are also some new tools to the ATC like "zoom", "export tactic" and a "Custom Map Wizard" that builds upon the already large library of tools! Create and manage your squad before even joining a server with ATC. For more information on ATC, visit www.foolishentertainment.com

    Have a great 4th everybody!

    HALLELUJIA, no more linux server crashing bug, finally, linux servers always have the best pings but you almost always crash halfway through the game which sucks :sigh:

    So, they are fixing the problems with the browser. Bah, bigger bugs are present in the game engine.

    Packet loss most notibly. The demo was never this bad. Players bouncing around even when I have a 30 ping. Thats whayt they need to fix.

    finally ea are releasing a patch based on COMMUNITY FEEDBACK!!!

    As i have read somewhere before, if bf1942 is anything to go by, there will be a lot of patch releases to fix the game, and get in some new maps and such.

    Still, nice to see EA cares about its gaming community....
    Till next time.

    on non PB and single player it is fine

    this is the worst release of of any game i have ever bought - it should still be in beta for testing

    I haven't played since a few hours ago! :D I was sleeping. But they do change... I used to have a 1.05 Kill/Death Ratio when I made the sig, but then I spent a few hours with BF2 and I got it to 1.13. I intend to be playing a lot with the setup I have now, so my stats won't be changing a lot except for the Kill/Death Ratio and the TeamScore
