I have managed to play a few games thus far, and once you're able to get into the game, its pretty fun but, its giving me so much damn grief.

First and foremost let me explain my most biggest beef, one which I demand an answer for: Account name. I have created many account names for BF2. NONE will let me join a game, whether single player or online. As soon as I join a server, the game crashes back to the desktop. Finally I decided to use my e-mail adress as an account, and what do you know, it works, except now I have another problem, my player name is my e-mail adress. What in the hell? So I can't use my chosen player name because it won't work for any account name except my e-mail adress? Okay so if anyone has an answer to that beef, please let me know I'd be most thankful.

My second problem is key bindings, which are a total pain in the ass. I can't bind any vehicles keys to the same thing, because it says it found an identical keybinding in "whatever" category. SO WHAT, I can't use the same keybindings ever? Totally assanine, I had to go and delete my config and just use the default for everything, which is a set I am not use to using at all. My third and final problem is this, sometimes when I login, the game decides to take up to 10 minutes to login to the game with my account. Which is a total drag, I find myself eating meals, showering, playing PSP meantime just waiting for the game to login to the authentification server.

Can anybody PLEASE help me with any of these I would be most thankful, thanks in advance.

These are ALL issues for EA support we can't tell you anything about it cause it has to do with their coding ....hopefully their patch takes care of the issues. The other thing to remember is this. This game JUST came out. which means you and 500,000 other people are trying to play also ...servers ( no matter how many they have working) are going to stall sometimes.

Thanks for the response. I know very well that this game is new, and I realise that many other people might have had the very same problem and have found a solution. Which is why I asked, maybe somebody had an answer. I have already reciewed support from EA games and nothing to my dismay, has answered my questions. But I appreciate any help I can get. Its just infuriating that I've had this game for 3 days, and have maybe played 30 minutes total of it, due to the hassle trying to get into games and STAYING in them has been. I look forward to a fix, because this game is pretty cool when you're actually playing it.

EDIT: I can currently not join any server as of now, everytime I join one it boots me to my desktop.

OK .... get a Program called. "fraps" Use it to take screenshots. it can take them as often as you set it to do it .... So you can set it to take one screen every few seconds. See if you can catch the error that you get ..or what you aren't getting in screen shot so i can see it ... Post your pc Specs. and run a dxdiag and post it or send it to me in pm. Also bandwidth, test it and see what your speeds are, both upload and download. Not to mention what you have, cable or dsl ...how far from DSL hub are you if you have dsl. What does your company tell you your bandwidth is? blah blah blah ..lets begin at the begining and end at the end ...and maybe i can help you get it nailed down. If you have msn ..You can add me in .... [email="merrickds@hotmail.com"]merrickds@hotmail.com[/email].
