Just been doing a clean setup of my PC and had to reinstall games, including 2142.

Thought I'd post the right installation routine for posterity.

Battlefield 2142
Full Patch 1.4
Northern Strike
Full Patch 1.4
Incremental Patch 1.4 -> 1.5
(Probably Incremental or full patch 1.51 if it ever makes official release)

Just to be clear if you have earlier seperate releases pre the patch levels mentioned then following any other install order such as installing both and applying full patch 1.5 will probably result in Northern Strike not working! This is well known and documented.

Patch 1.51 now includes NS for free and some badly needed new maps and release of beta 1.51 seems to have coincided with removal from sale of earlier seperate release and deluxe pack release commercial versions.

I also set command line switches on the shortcut for auto login, soldiername selection and enabling widescreen :

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Electronic Arts\Battlefield 2142\BF2142Launcher.exe" +menu 1 +widescreen 1 +szx 1680 +szy 1050 +eaAccountName youraccountname +eaAccountPassword youraccountpassword +soldierName yoursoldiername

Finally I had to go and get the manual update tool and do a manual update for Punkbuster.

I'll update this if EA ever get round to finishing patch 1.51

it'll be a FUNKEN cold day in hell before i let 2142 die and play that FN stupid BFBC2 game fulltime on my computer, there are more hacks/cheats and faults with BC2 in it's short life than in all of 2142's long life so they must have done something right in the past why did they funk up a very good idea and go down the console game path???????????
