The year is 2142 and the dawn of a new ice age has thrown the world into a panic. The soil not covered by ice can only feed a fraction of the Earth's population. The maths is simple and brutal: some will live, most will die. In Battlefield 2142, players choose to fight for one of two military superpowers - the European Union or the newly formed Pan Asian Coalition - in an epic battle for survival.

Allow me to introduce myself to those that don't know me. I am Twigs a long time First Strike player and member of the development team.

I originally got brought on to the team as a tester, shortly after the first release. During that time one of the mod team (Woodrow) developed a space map creator, decreasing the amount of time required to use the original BF2 Editor to create space maps. As a former X-Wing Vs Tie Fighter player (for TRA if any of you played back in the day), this really piqued my interest. I started having a little go at making a map or two, then tweaking little bits of code and before I knew it.... I'd somehow become an actual mod developer.

Sadly, EA and Gamespy shut down the master server, meaning no more FS. Dnamro carried on trying to find a way to do single player, but for me it was pointless. Unless it was relatively easy for people to pick it up and install then the mod was dead. All that was about to change though.

If you haven't already seen, the BF Revive project has managed to get both BF2 and BF2142 working with a little bit of magic! They have even got a First Strike server up and running, thanks to a number of fans asking them to consider adding the mod to their downloads section. Admittedly, it is a co-op server, but it does mean we can get online and join forces against the bots wink

Dnamro's passion has always been in single player and with the sudden interest in getting multiplayer running again, he has asked me to take over as Mod Leader. This will allow him to concentrate on his single player work, while putting MP firmly back in the picture. So what does this mean for First Strike in the future?

We can't go on forever, even though 2142 can now be obtained and played online, it’s still going to end up with a small hardcore fan base and a smaller percentage will be interested in FS. Also, the mod team was pretty small towards the end so first priority has to be getting people on board. After that, we'll be getting in touch with the Revive guys to discuss online play and making the files available on their system.

Our player base, though small, clearly wants to see First Strike back online. We've all grown a little older and wiser since we last met, and hopefully that means that any old animosity can be laid aside. Right now, I need you. As players, fans, testers and developers. If you would like to join the team in some capacity then post below telling me what you can offer. If you were once a tester or developer, then post below telling me you are back on board, or even if you just want to retire/stick to playing. If you are a fan/player, post below and show the team that there is some interest.

You have your orders troopers.

The Game (Total Installer) works like a charm (with an generic profile).

But the problem is - if you start/host a multiplayer match and someone tries to join you, the client immediately gets an connection error and is thrown back to the multiplayer menu.

This happens to every computer at the lan party (doesn't who's the host and who's trying to join).

As far as I found out this is an known problem with offline LAN sessions regarding to the 1.50 or 1.51 version.

I would highly recomend this game to anyone who likes First Person Shooters.

It has an amazing Squad system, and the Squad Control is great.
The graphics are cool, it's future-istic kill'em all combat, and is GREAT for online play.

The only downside is that the Single-Player gameplay stinks, and could have been greatly improved upon, though I guess the main focus of the game is Multi-Player.

So, if you have a good internet connection, and enjoy intense combat, you would love this game.
