So another patch is coming up!

Last time I had to reinstall BF2, get the latest vanilla Patch and then FH2 and the 2.1 patch.

- in other words, a bummer.

So, this time. What do I gotta do before updating to 2.15?

Heard somebody said, delete the shaders, anything more?

Maybe it's just me but I never do anything besides downloading the patches (internal beta patches, both incremental and full patches), run the installer and play... Never had an issue (except perhaps once when shaders had to be reset/cleaned due to new graphic effects between patches). :clueless: Just the good old BF, BF2 patch, FH 2.0 install, FH patch, FH patch, more FH patches, lots more of FH patches, many more patches and patches and so on...

yeah same here never had any problems and we get internal patches almost every week. but there are other (FatJoe) who have big problems with the patches. he always creates several copys of hit FH2 folder and then applys the patch to them until it works. i guess some people are just f*cked and we dont know why.

I would expect both from the devs - they're always good like that.

Can I hi-jack this thread to ask;

I'm a Vista user I'm just doing a fresh install of BF2 & FH2, as I have DirectX 10 already installed for other games, do I need to install DirectX 9.0c to play FH2?

I think the last time I did this it's where everything went snafu, Fh2 wouldn't start, so I'm just eliminating possibilities right now.

cheers for reading

No you can`t hijack my thread...Oh it`s to late allready !!!....,.only kidding mate. Thx for the replies, I will most likely d/l the full install and use that rather than the patch.:) As far as I`m aware the lastest version of Direct X has all the previous versions included for retro gaming.;) Cheers all.
