You will need the cd because the mod is not able to update to the new .exe file since 1.51. You can correct this by a simple file rename though. Rebeldefiance.clanteam.com should have the information in the downloadable help file. If not, I can tell you how to do it.
Just to be sure, is 2142 fully updated with the correct patches?
Download the helpfile available here:
Round three is about to start!
Campaign round two kicks off shortly, get on the server folks!
You can set ventrillo to use any button, I have mine set to a mouse button.
Will be playing tonight to get some practice in ahead of tomorrows opening campaign rounds! Join me around 9pm GMT!
Please try to update again, the server had been compromised but has now been restored. We are currently looking in to setting up a redundancy system.
hmm. Ok...Can you please try registering with the rebel defiance forums then?
Sorry about the delay in replying, last minute essay due! Get registered on there and I will get you sorted out bud.
Sometimes happens if there is an issue server side. Try it again now its had a few hours. If not, go to the site forums and post on there. If you are still having issues I can upload a zipped version of the up to date launcher for you.
Don't forget to actually register for a team guys, it WILL make a differance to the campaign. We've arranged it so that each team will earn points even if they lose, but for every player that has not registered for a faction, that team will lose points. Should make things interesting as it goes on!
Voted for MOTY also. Now I'm heading online to play some games!
Well don't forget that every Sunday is the Community games night starting from 8pm GMT
Rebel Defiance server now has a dedicated website. It is an ongoing process but will house a help file (eventually) plus links to all the required files. There is also a forums section for those that wish to start getting involved with the upcoming campaign.
Keep the campaign alive!
Using the FS launcher, click file, preferences and in the field called arguments type +szx 1920 +szy 1080 replacing the numbers with your own monitors native resolution.
Do you play vanilla 2142 and do you have any issues in there? I would suggest the first thing to try is manually update punkbuster: Evenbalance.com
If that doesnt cure it please post back or preferably as Talon says check the forums, or open a new post as its much easier for me to help you there.
We will be playing some games tonight so please try to join.
Sorry, been away. I am currently starting ideas for a new campaign hosted by the FirstStrike team on our own forums. Registration will not be neccessary, just beneficial.
Start the mod with the FirstStrike Launcher, but do NOT press the launch button. Click on File then preferences, in the box that says version it should read 1019. If it doesn't then your mod has not updated for some reason. You can also set a custom resolution here, in the arguments box simply type +szx 1920 +szy 1080 but replace the numbers with your own desktop resolution. Then click apply then ok. Hit launch and the mod should update itself, if it doesn't (eg says error connecting to server) then please report back so we can investigate further.
This is also much easier and far quicker to get answers to if you register and post on the forums at www.fsmod.com.
Thanks to all the new players however that ARE enjoying the mod so far and are willing to persevere through some of these minor issues to get a great mod experience!
If the bots aren't doing anything then you may not have fully updated the mod. Please ensure you use the FirstStrike launcher programme, rather than going via 2142's community/mod selection.
If a map is not loading then it may be too graphically intensive for your pc.
Many of the maps but not all have singleplayer support.
Hello mate, sorry for the delay, we've all been celebrating!
Anyway, many mods come with custom installation instructions whcih can differ. Some, like FirstStrike, simply need you to download it then run the .exe, the programme will install itself.
The main thing to remember is to install BF2142 properly, and that means patching it to the latest version. You need to look for BF2142 patch 1.50 and install it, then install patch 1.51. Be careful here though, as there were about 2 or 3 versions of 1.51 before they finally decided it was the actual final version.
If your not sure, then feel free to stop by the firststrike forums at www.fsmod.com and someone will probably be kind enough to provide you with some good links to each patch. Also, its a good place to post if you have any problems getting our mod to run as we check that more frequently than here at moddb.
Look forward to seeing you out there!
Rebel Defiance server will be looking at hosting some community games every night from 8pm GMT throughout the holidays. If you haven't played First Strike yet then this is a great time to come and join us.
Having problems with First Strike? Join our forums, we have a sticky thread with common problems and solutions, if your issue isn't covered then make a post and we'll help you out.
Thanks to everyone for your FirstStrike votes! Still time to add your support if you haven't already. Keep your eyes peeled for another special preview coming soon!
Sounds like you either have an earier version of the mod. make sure you donwload the latest vesion (1.5 @ Fsmod.com) and allow it to update via the games own autopatcher, you should find it will download two new updates. After that, check out the ai on Mos Espa as it is a very different beast now, added to that there is also the inclusion of a secret bounty hunter kit for you to find. This gives you access to a jetpack and other goodies so you can fly around and hit the bots.
You can check the other SP maps out too, as the latest version also added ai support to Rhenvar Ice Plains, Rhenvar Research and Strike at Parmel. If those aren't in your current SP list then you have an early version and haven't judged the mod on its current content.
Lets get some good old fashioned gaming on FS today! Rebel Defiance will be playing round the clock co-op, so join us on there for a few warm up games before taking part in Round 3 of the Nations in Conflict campaign tonight! Not registered to take part in the campaign yet? Just check out the latest news post for details on how to register your interest!
Thanks Joshino! Makes a big differance to the existing sp/co-op maps, and we've also tweaked Yavin as well, so now the bots navigate out of the hangar much better. This in turn means humans also exit the hangar more smoothly.
The addition of the other space maps also helps give players a fuller mod experience when playing in either singleplayer or co-op.
Well hang on in there...it's making a return :D
Current version runs with the 2142 patch 1.51
Ah I see...
Try the patch here, its the one I use www.gamershell.com/download_69646.shtml
I'm afraid though that you might need to reinstall. OR, if you feel comfortable editing the registry try this:
Hit start and type REGEDIT in to the search bar and hit enter (Win7/Vista)
For XP Hit Start then run and type REGEDIT
For 64 bit versions of Windows:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \SOFTWARE \Wow6432Node \Electronic Arts \EA GAMES \Battlefield 2142
Right click on Version, select Modify, change to 1.50 and then close the registry.
For 32 Bit versions of Windows:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \SOFTWARE \Electronic Arts \EA GAMES \Battlefield
After this you should be able to install the 1.51 patch.
You got the right version of the 1.51 patch? Because I think they released about three versions, two betas and then two final public versions.....
If you've definitely got the right one, go to our forums and post, but this fix usually sorts it:
Go 2142 folder and deleted the FirstStrike.exe
Copy the 2142.exe and rename it FirstStrike
launch with FS launcher
For more in depth explanations as I say, check out our client support section on the forums.
