To reintall the patch, do I unintall the whole game and then reinstall 1.4 patch?
ALso, are there reports that this patch can cause Crashes to Desktop and if so should i be using an earlier patch ???
Thanks for any help !
If you want to play online (and who doesn't?) the patch versionon your computer must match the patch version on the online server, and since most servers are now running 1.4 the answer is, yes, you will need to run 1.4.
If you already have BF installed there is no need to uninstall it, even if your have already patched to an earlier version, just download and run the 1.4 patch (there is a 1.4 update from 1.31, which I used and it is running fine, but if you have a 1.3 or earlier version patch you will need the full 1.4 patch. Also, if you are not sure, it won't hurt running the full 1.4 patch even if you have 1.31). You will only need to un-install and re-install in one of the rare cases where installing a patch corrupts your custom user profiles etc.
Crashes to dektop are much likelier to happen due to incorrectly installed mods and maps. If you do have a problem just pop in here and ask for help.

Thanks for the advice. Can I ask a stupid question. I have trouble getting into the game through gamespy, so I go in thru multiplay in the game itself.
Question is : How do you know if youre connecting to a server running 1.4 ??
These crashes to desktop I get occur ramdomly, I could be playing for 10 minutes or 1 hour when they happen. Suppose its just a buggy game !

Anyone who has been here long enough knows I have a dislike for Gamespy. Not only is it a poor interface, it puts spyware on your PC. Get ASE ( All Seeing Eye ). It has filters you can set with a click of a button for version numbers, mods and customisable filters for anything you want.
I also get kicked sometimes, but other times I have played the entire night with no problems, just the luck of the draw.
