Battlefield 2 V1.50 Patch Beta #3

Release Date: July 7, 2009

DICE released the Battlefield 2 v1.50 beta 3 patch today as promised. Make sure to follow the directions below to properly
install this beta.

Please pay attention to the J10 aircraft to see if you feel anymore difference.

Connection issues should be ironed out and kick messages are back in the game.

Please do NOT install over a previous 1.50 Beta install. Install over 1.41 Battlefield 2 to ensure you don't get any
unusual issues from overwriting files that shouldnt be there. When doing a reinstall (if you have to) please delete the
Battlefield 2 directory after you have uninstalled. Also I recommend deleting profiles and cache files from your My
Documents folder to ensure a clean install.
