This section contains specific troubleshooting tips which address many of the common problems experienced by Battlefield 2 players.

I can't stress enough the importance of taking the time to go through the checklist of advice below if you're having a problem with the game.

The first thought was about information and software distribution management.

The decision was to give the community a program that would announce and provide software updates as well as important information messages.

Just follow the instructions carefully, and hopefully you'll get it sorted out.
