7) FAQ :

1) Will the mod affect Punkbuster ?

No, TW is a standalone mod and doesn't affect PB at all.

2) Does TW affect my vanilla bf2 game ?

Asolutely not.

3) This mod makes my PC crash, wtf ??

Please check first that the entire mod was correctly installed on your computer and that the

patch 1.03 is installed.
Please stay calm and post a message on our forum (see up).

4) This mod is really uncomplete, it's missing so many things !

That's true. As this release is the first release of TacticalWar on the bf2 engine, it is not
completed at all and many vehicles, weapons and enhancements are missing but will be added in
future patches. So stay tuned on our website to check the last improvements.

5) What is the aim of this mod ?

It's aimed at improving realism. More teamplay is the key feature, as well as an hypothetical

taking place around 2012.
Our only purpose is to make people have fun with our mod.

6) Can I play it alone with bots ?

Yes, this mod is compatible with singleplayer mode with bots.

7) Can I play it on the internet ?

Yes of course. You may only want to find a dedicated server that runs the mod on the


8) Why is TW still only compatible with the "old" bf2 patch 1.03?

The bf2 patch 1.12 is a complementary patch intended for BF2:Special Forces. It contains

nearly 50% of all files that BF2:SF actually requires.

Thus this patch is more like a patch for BF2:SF than a patch for vanilla Battlefield2.
A patch enhances or fixes a game but does not change it as deeply as this 1.12 does.

What's more, at the moment we decided to release this 0.1 version of TW, this 1.12 patch was

already waiting to get itself patched to fix all the bugs it had introduced.

As a result, we couldn't wait for another patch to fix TacticalWar and we prefered to release

with all the new features of the mod on the quite stable 1.03 version.

9) I have a question but I couldn't find any answer on this faq

We are always looking forward to hiring new talented and motivated people.
