Try this: In F:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\My Documents\Battlefield 2\dmp (or whatever the path is that you need to get to that specific folder), is a log file called ..... patchlog.txt Read through it. it will tell you what the patching has passed and what it has failed. Then you will have more information to research with. EXAMPLE in attachment. You will notice that it said some files didn't exist. I UNINSTALLED bf2 and reinstalled the game in light of the old patch having the issues it did, so don't freak out about this.
