Just had to reinstall BF2, having not done this for ages I had to look some things up, so I thought Id share.

Installation order :

Battlefield 2
Special Forces Expansion
Full Patch 1.41
Armoured Fury
Euro Forces
Full Patch 1.41
Incremental Patch 1.41 -> 1.5


Some of these patch files are getting very big! Best download well in advance of when you expect to need them.

Widescreen support, sort of :

"C:\Program Files (x86)\EA GAMES\Battlefield 2\BF2.exe" +menu 1 +fullscreen 1 +szx 1680 +szy 1050

I think the above setting causes hud to stretch but havent tested yet.

As usual had to do full manual punkbuster update. :angry:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Electronic Arts\Battlefield 2142\BF2142.exe" +widescreen 1

This will allow you to select res 1680-1050 under video section in-game. keeps hud looking normal too...

I've never had to do a manual PB update

I download and run/update PBSetup then PBSVC

PBSVC gets files PnkBstrA and PnkBstrB running on ur comp, then your good to go... :)
