Just reinstalled my stuff and have been up against a pretty nasty surprise. When i run EA downloader to require my booster packs and patches, im unable to login because it doesnt display ANY thing. the central area is a white blank and the borders black. I cant even see the minimize/X tabs at the upper left. EA is offering no support at all. whats going on here?
Re-installed what stuff? Just BF2 or Windows itself? if it's windows itself you may not have updated all your required software, you know ActiveX, java, your browser etc etc etc. it's likely that the EA downloader requires the latest java so go and get it from www.sun.com.
Reinstalled BF2. I think my Windows XP may be corrupted. I cant successfully install the lates IE though my java is up to date. Also cant download and install the latest XP updates via the automatic updates...most odd.
Oh and my EA downloader is still flubbed. so much for playing EF and AF...which i payed for.
The Windows updater uses Active X so it is most likley Active X that is screwed, the EA downloader probably also uses Active X. Hmm, have you tried a different browser?
yeah, i use Firefox religously and i also have opera.
Ok just for the sake of arguement. Have you tried using IE to get your updates ?
yes, it tells me that it is unable to download and install updates and directs me to a site that has nothing to do with anything. im probaly going to have to format my hardrive and isntall everything from scratch. which i wont do becase BF2 isnt worth losing my other data.

if you have the IE7 beta installed, that can screw it up....but the IE7 beta3 seems to work fine for me
Tried that, the installation always shiats out so i cant install it. it tells me to update my windows but when i click autoupdate, that fails to. Bill Gates is a douche
