The new patch is here, and with it comes many welcome changes. One of which that I wasn't anticipating was not being able to connect through ASE anymore. This wouldn't be so bad if the improved server browsewr wasn't still so buggy. It is a bit faster, and does have favorites, but... Perhaps it's just me, but anytime I use the search box, I get nothing, and after I use it, it won't reload the server list again unless I restart the game.

For those of us who hate using limited in-game browsers, thanks to the folks over at the ASE forums, a fix is here:

Okay, I'm not sure if the ASE guys will update soon to allow BF2 to start up again, but for now here's a fix.

Go to your ASE directory (default C:\Program Files\The All-Seeing Eye) and open up filters.txt. Search for "battlefield 2" and here's what you should have:

Code: Battlefield 2

ServerType: GS RegKey: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Electronic Arts\EA GAMES\Battlefield 2\INSTALLDIR ExeName: BF2.EXE JoinTemplate: {EXEPATH} +restart 1 +joinServer {ip} +port {port} [ +password "{PASSWORD}"] HostTemplate: {EXEPATH} +restart 1 +hostServer 1

Now, change the JoinTemplate line to this: Code: JoinTemplate: {EXEPATH} +joinServer {ip} +port {port} +username yourusername +playerPassword yourpassword [ +password "{PASSWORD}"]

Note that what you did was remove the +restart 1 and added +username yourusername +playerPassword yourpassword, of course replacing yourusername and yourpassword with your, um, username and password.

Once you join a server through ASE, you will bypass the login menu for BF2 and the game might seem to freeze for a bit with the EA message. Just wait a few seconds and BF2 should start loading your new map!

Also, here's a filter for the Wake Island map (which you can place in the filters.txt after the std maps):

Battlefield 2\Maps\Wake Island 2007 Group: BF2MAPS Mutex: BF2MAPS 1 if map ~!= "wake?island?2007" remove

Battlefield 2\Maps\Other Group: BF2MAPS Mutex: BF2MAPS Flags: OTHER

ASE, as expected, still towers over the "new and improved" BF2 browser.

Thanks. It works for me.

The in-game browser is so poor. After the patch they added some features, (like FAVORITES... a very basic feature). But I have the same buggy problem with it blanking the server list and not refreshing in certain cases. Nice to have ASE back on-line.

After using this fix to join a game, when I finally do get into it, EVERY single sound from the game is playing at once. Artillery, rockets firing and exploding, gunshots, grenades exploding, all playing at once... Does anyone else get this?

That sounds really strange, and is the first I've heard of it. I don't think it's due to the ASE fix, but you can test that by joining thru the same server with the ingame browser and then with ASE again to see how it reacts.

If you need it, I've attached an unmodified filters.txt file to restore your original one:

I don't get that problem, JerginsSoft. The fix works OK for me.
