    BETA patch released

    Hey guys,

    The BF2 BETA patch is out and available from EA and other sources.

    * Reversion: Allowing unlocks on unranked servers
    * Fix/Reversion: We fixed the issue preventing mod teams from running multiple game modes in one map list.
    * Tuning: We have lowered the number of players needed to start a ranked game.
    * Tuning: We have made some modifications to the vehicle drop feature introduced in 1.3. These changes should reduce the overall impact of ‘cartillery’ on game play.
    * Crash Fix: We have located and fixed a crash connected to 1.3.

    Full is 522 MB
    Incrimental is 138 MB

    That's a lot of bits. I wonder if a few of them fixed the red tag bug?

    If you want to backup your 1.3 version of BF2 just do the following.

    Installation steps to protect your original BF2 install:
    Beta Installation

    1. Go to “C:\Program Files\EA GAMES”
    2. Right click the “Battlefield 2” folder and choose “Copy”
    3. Right click anywhere away from this folder and choose “Paste”
    4. Once the copy has completed, you will have two folders named “Battlefield 2” and “Copy of Battlefield 2”
    5. Install the patch 1.4 beta, then start the game as normal

    When you wish to switch back to the release version of BF2, use the following steps:

    1. Go to “C:\Program Files\EA GAMES”
    2. Right click the “Battlefield 2” folder and choose “Rename”
    3. Rename the folder to something like “Battlefield 2 Beta”
    4. Right click the “Copy of Battlefield 2” folder
    5. Rename the folder the “Battlefield 2”
    6. Start the game as normal.

    The shortcut will run BF2.exe from whichever folder is named “Battlefield 2” and both installations share the same registry entries.

    Using the above steps will negate the need to completely uninstall and re-install whenever you wish to switch from the retail version to the beta version and vice versa.

    Just a couple of things I have noticed in the new patch so far.

    1. There is a server side option for "Revive Time". I suppose this allows you to adjust the time that a player can be revived separately from the respawn time.
    2. There is an "Infantry Only" option for all maps.

    Both seem pretty cool, but the ability to use either on a ranked server is doubtful. The should have added a Knife/Pistol Only option too.
