mn9500sorry. didnt know it was against the end user license agreement.
EA goons have been dispatched to your home to break your legs.
Next time, read the EULA, like the rest of us always do.... :p
I didn't make it!
[color=black]Here is the link where I found this press release if you want to view it there. I would suggest that if you’re hosting a BF2 demo and you are planning to host the full version, that you read this carefully. This is EA's official position on the subject. Personally I think is bull however I would not advise you test their resolve on this.[/color]
www.totalbf2.com EA Blacklisting Servers? Wed 15 Jun 2005, 4:57 AM | Rico | 16 Comments Word on the street is that those running hacked servers (time limit, unlocked weapons etc) are being removed from the server list on the in-game browser. I'll let VE3D explain the deal: Admins are up in arms today as EA has apparently begun to blacklist Battlefield 2 demo servers that are running without timelimits and/or with all weapons unlocked. While the unlocking of weapons reserved for the full game may be pushing it a bit far (EA did however include all assets for these weapons in the demo, just begging for someone to unlock them), both modifications are enabled with a simple one-line alteration any novice could do in an unencrypted file. EA has backed the mod community since the release of the Battlefield 1942 demo, but failed to warn of the consequences if the demo was modified, or in fact state that it was forbidden. To make matters worse, EA is failing to respond to requests for comment, and blacklisted servers can only return to the server list by changing I.P., a move that many hosting companies charge for. Update: This was just posted on our forums, a response from EA to someone enquiring about their server: "Modification of game files is against the EULA. Action will be taken against all users who modify game files. We will not tolerate "hackers", anyone who modifies server files will have their IP addresses banned and they will not be able to run servers for Battlefield 2. This will last for one month from the date that the user with the IP address was caught." If you have any more information on this let us know, as it seems to be a frequent issue now raised across various forums. http://www.totalbf2.com/
To be completely honest, I just kept on pressing next.
ROFL ... what a joke :0wned:
Just one more thing ... they complain about us for "Hacking" the demo when the full game is already out on the streets. They said the game would be released on the 24th June for Europe and 22nd June for the U.S AS STATED IN THE DEMO. In effect the demo period has past so why should they care what happens to it? This is a load of bollocks tbh ... Its almost like they dont want us to buy the friggin game. :lol:
