I recently received BF2 for my birthday, and it came with the 1.03 patch. As there are about 10 servers for it, mostly all full or laggy, I decided to upgrade to the 1.22 patch (which ASE says has over 800). Unfortunately, the patch freezes at overall 9%, when it is doing something to "(don't remember)objects". Did anyone else have this problem?
Hmm... If I were you I'd try a reboot... But if you're smart - like me :p - then you have already tried this... Then I'd try downloading the patch again from a new site, just in case that your file is corrupt... If none of this works try reinstalling BF2 from scratch
If you stopped the patch from installing .. You will have to reinstall from scratch now... You will have to delete everything and delete the Registry key involved. LEAVE IT ALONE... Let it do what it needs to do, have patience. From what i remember that patch took almost a half hour on some people's systems... But then, i don't think you need the 1.22 patch if you just get the latest patch and use that ..... There is no reason to not be fully up to date.
The game is fine now (I reinstalled). The 1.22 patch is the newest patch, that's why I want it :P. And I have waited over an hour, on a computer with 512mb ram and a 2.4 ghz processor (it's not THAT bad).
The file itself isn't corrupted, I downloaded twice and the exe runs fine.
This 1.22 is the FULL client files. I got this one because there was no 1.03 (or 1.1, same thing) -> 1.12 patch, even though there were 1.12 -> whatever..
I'll just try again. :/
EDIT: Also I want to emphasize: the problem is with the patch. I can play BF2 fine. I don't need help reinstalling it, etc. Just wanted to clear up some confusion :) If I can't get the patch I'll just play 1.03, but 1.03 kind of sucks as all the servers are full.
Yes ... i know the issue is with the patch .. But if you stopped the patching before it was done. There could be an issue with trying to REPATCH it ..... Corrupt files and the like. also , it seems as though they have had more issues with the incremental patches than that of the full patches. some people have waited an hour, some people have waited 15 min ... And to be quite honest ... If you are running the game on 512 , it is that bad. The games requirements are much higher than what they specified it as.
I reinstalled, so there should be no problem with repatching.
And I'm going to upgrade the RAM soon, but for right now it's sufficing.
