Hell all, I need help with Northern Strike: I downloaded it, put it on a USB Stick and brought it to the PC with BF2142 installed on. I started the setup.exe and it installed everything in a few seconds. No activation code or whatsoever was asked. Afterwards I started BF2142 but couldn't find the Booster Pack's maps... also, no links have been added in the "Programs Menu" of Windows...

Any help?

Thanks...:confused:

Yes, I did use EADM to download that file. The only "not usual" thing I did was to copy out the setup.exe and put it on another PC (the one which actually has BF2142 installed). Is this causing the problem?

BTW: I simply *downloaded* the file, should I also click on "Activate" in the EADM?

Hy there... no error message is showing up. When you state "maps without links" are you saying that I won't see any link/shortcut in Windows? That would be OK, as far as I could be able to select and use them in BF2142!

Question: how has the "activation" to be done? I mean, as I stated before: I installed EADM on one PC, downloaded the setup.exe and copied it over to the PC I use to play with. How do I now activate it? Should I activate it on the PC which downloaded the file? Or what else?

Thanks again... almost desperate!:bawl:

Okay i have the fix for your problems. YOU MST INSTALL THESE IN EXACTLY THE SAME ORDER!(fist off uninstall 2142). Ok install in this order: bf2142, 1.4 patch full, Northern Strike, 1.4 patch full, 1.5 patch full. this DOES work. I know because thats how i fixed MY problem. it SHOULD work for you guys.

Hy there... Tried your suggestion: nothing has changed! :bawl:

Is there any way to get my money back from EA? I really can't get it to work...

BTW: I have bought that BoosterPack with one email-address, but want to use it with a player/user which has a different email-address. Maybe this is causing some troubles?

Thanks...
