Hi, Heard a rumor as of late that installing any mods will mean that bf2 files are edited and punkbuster wont let you play ranked servers anymore. Can someone clarify this issue as I am sooo looking forward to mods like FH2 and POE2 etc. but still want to play ranked stock bf2 (patched still). Also does anyone know if it is possible for the mods to create rankings for thier mod (independent of stock bf2 of course). TY in advance :beer:

A rumour? The FACTS are, most of the original SP mods modified the main game folders and caused PB to prevent you joining PB enabled servers, there are some new SP mods out that create their own mod folder and don't cause probs with PB. A real mod in a proper MOD folder does not alter the original BF2 files in any way and will not cause probs with PB. And yes, it is possible to crreate ranked modded servers independant of BF2, but the cost of maintaining the servers for storign the data if the mods became poppular would probably be prohibitive, most mod makers do it for fun and are not selling their product, so therefore don't have a vast stream of incoming funds like EA to pay for the server harwdare and hosting costs, so the answer is, yes it is possible, but it probably won't happen unless EA agree to do the data storage.
