Hello everyone, my name is Sam “RedMonkey” Olson, I’m 21 years old, and I currently reside in Seattle, Washington (USA). I began my video game development career in 2003, learning 3D Studio Max and C++ programming through the DigiPen Institute's outreach programs. I began my modding career in 2005, with the short-lived Battlefield 2 mod Russian Assault, and haven't looked back since. I'm currently the lead modeler for First Strike, a Star Wars total conversion modification for the PC game Battlefield 2142, and I'm enjoying every minute of the ongoing development process (except, of course, for those long, sleepness nights in the ramp-up to a major release). My future plans include a full time job in the game development industry, but for the moment I'm content doing the work that I love for free. Thanks for stopping by my profile, and if you'd like to contact me, feel free to email me, or send a private message.

I would suggest manually updating your punkbuster by following the instructions on the punkbuster website, and ensuring that your firewall is allowing both PnkBstrA.exe and PnkBstrB.exe (each PnkBstrB.exe is specific to each game that uses PB so if you have other games, make sure the BF2142 one is allowed).

We will be releasing both a full install exe as well as an incremental patch, so download whichever one is easier for you.

The modified content error is a known issue with 1.1, and it has to do with the version of server files the server you are trying to connect to is running. Try connecting to different servers, and if that doesn't work then I would suggest just waiting until tomorrow for the release of the 1.2 patch.

The Battle of Yavin (trench run) is included in 1.2

Unfortunately titans are restricted to movement in a 2D plane (without the ability to rotate even around the Z-axis), and typically cause a large amount of server lag when moved. However, the biggest problem with making capital ships boardable is the fact that soldiers will lag through walls/floors when they move due to BF2142's highly inefficient netcode (read: crappy). Not to mention the fact that the boardable capital ships would need to be restricted to Z-axis rotation only due to the way soldier gravity is coded in the BF2142 engine.

Glad you liked the update. 2142 is pretty cheap nowadays so if you like what you see I definitely recommend picking up a copy.

Aplogies for the server being down guys, I'll see about hosting the pics externally for now, and hopefully we'll get everything working here soon.

RedMonkey999 @ First Strike v1.2 Update: Ryloth

First Strike v1.1 already supports BF2142 v1.40, so FS 1.2 will also support it.
