Ok, so EA actually did something worthwhile. The newest patch for Battlefield 2142,which was literally unveiled an hour ago actually fixes and adds things that I can't believe.
First and foremost the thing that makes me the most happy is they added widescreen support. I've had to play all Battlefield games with blackbars on the left and right side to keep it porpotional with my widescreen monitor. Now I can finally play in the full glory of my monitor.
They've also added 2 new maps, and a new game mode. A patch from EA that actually increases playability amazes me. I don't know how many of you even have this game, but well, it makes me pretty happy haha.
If only EA would have enough sense to go back and patch BF2 with the same things. Especially the widescreen support and the handy, surprisingly easy to use friends list that BF2142 has.

you mean you haven't been using the widescreen hacks?...nub. Oh and wassup!
I have used it, but it's stupid. Although of course I can't figure out how to choose widescreen resolutions with this new patch, hmm.

Yea, BF2 is pretty much done now. The only real effort (if you would consider it effort) is keeping the Account Servers up, and I think that's GameSpy's jurisdiction. And what do you know, the servers are sputtering, anyways. :rolleyes: And of course it must happen when new, popular mods are hitting the door. BF2 has already turned into BF42's mod picture just before FH2 came out; only a few mods seem to be the most popular: DC and FH1 for the latter, and PR, FH2, and maybe some EOD2 for the former. As for 2142, this is undoubtedly a good thing, but I've lost track on how well it's going. How's that Star Wars mod doing? First Strike, isn't it?
A superior 5-digit number

First Strike mod is an oustanding, and I daresay, near FH2 quality mod for BF2142. Never have I seen such an outstanding and true-to-lore StarWars experience out there! I'm not exaggerating -- the work these guys have done is staggering.
The only issue? Hardly anyone plays it. This is really a crime, too. It would be like no one playing FH or Day of Defeat -- the mod is that good.
First strike is an insanely good mod. It defintely rivals FS in quality, I'm amazed at the detail, especially the Death Star map, Holy crap wow that is an amazingly intense maps. I get shivers everytime I play it.
