File Description

This is the dedicates server tool, allowing the people who want to create the best of the best servers around.

We highly recommend Battlefield servers to be run on dedicated server platforms. Currently, the best performance is on a machine with the following specifications:

8-player WinOS/800Mhz processor/128MB RAM/ADSL connection

16/32-player WinOS/1Ghz processor/256MB RAM/T1 connection

As always if you can increase any of the above hardware you will improve your overall gameplay experience.
