Hello Alpha Project Community!

Yes, you were reading right guys, our mod is back in business, including a new fullblown ONLINE SUPPORT featured by 762 Ranking

This is including a new hosting service launched by a external executable which will let you create a completley NEW ACCOUNT specificly for our mod.

With this i want to say many thanks to =DGC=Neo82 who helped us making all this possible, this new system will be running specifly for one 100 PLAYER SERVER located in germany only for now and will also include CUSTOM RANKING which can be browsed -> HERE <-

You can check it out already right now and dont have to wait for the patch to create your account and test it out, just download the following exeutable and follow the instructions!

We cant wait to see you on the battlefield soldiers! Happy fragging!


  • simply copy the executable on your desktop and run it with administrator rights, get sure your firewall doesnt block it, otherwise it wont work!
  • Now select Alpha Project in the drop down menu and press start, it should automaticly find your installation and download the nessesary files into its root directory, after the update is done (there should only be a short popup) just press start again and it should launch the game...
  • When ingame, simply create a new account with the nickname of your choice and jump into the multplayer tab to join the one and only server available in the list!

In case you expereince black flickering artifacts ingame, close down the game again, launch the BF2ModLauncher.exe and press "Fix Shaders" button and start the game again, then everything should be fine!

Download this and put it directly into the battlefield 2 folder, not the mod folder, the main battlefield 2 directory where the bf2.exe is in:
After this, run the modlauncher again and it should work now!

I think this mod need to increase view distance on maps, I already have it on 100 and SRAW missles still disapper when I'm firing on a helicopter that is far away.

P.S: I have some other stuff on low-med, like textures, lightning, dynamic light and dynamic shadows. Does that have to do with it?

This is unfortunately not an option for us. Our maps are too detailed for us to even consider this. If we were to do this, then those performance issues we have would just get worse by a very large degree.

You can, however, tweak view distances yourself if you are resourceful enough to know where to adjust those codes.

I hope this helps. :)

First off: This mod is amazing. It feels like a whole new game, like BF 2.5 really. I love it.

Unfortunatly though, I am (playing coop all the time) having really bad performance running the mod. Settings are maxed out as usual, but I am running a high end system and this was never a problem in any BF2 mod. In AP though, I have stuttering all the time. Every beginning of a round on spawning, the game freezes for like 3 seconds completely. I think I'll have to downgrade to 0.2 again unless I find a solution to that framerate drop issue. Any help is appreciated.

The latest version is also still very crashy. I had CTDs several times now while customizing the guns or browsing the inventory with a customized gun. The Mk12 SPR with 4x for example is a crashy kit for me.

This is one of the best mods out there, keep it alive!

For those who are sick of the spawnlag with bots, please download this python file and replace it with the one in the mod and the spawnlag should be gone!

(Put it into your battlefield 2/mods/ap/python/game/alpha/ folder)

Please backup the original one if you want to play online! BY JONES ;)

Good to hear that. Looking forward to it. Any word on the horrible performance? I really had to revert to 0.2. The current version is unplayable for me, performance drops, micro stuttering, freezes and overall bad fps is keeping me from enjoying the awesomeness unfortunatly. I never experienced anything like this before. Do you have an idea what part of AP could be responsible for this? Or is it a "deal with it" issue?

It is not AI related that much I can tell you.

Darman_Skirata Feb 28 2015, 4:59pm replied:

I might reconisder that last statement. Actually, there seems to be a lag caused by AI spawning, but it is not the only reason. Try eastern showdown for example with or without bots, it is laggy as hell.

Anyway, from browsing throgh the comments I get that you must be well aware of these issues. I hope you get them fixed for the next patch so that we all may enjoy your work to 100% again. Thanks for your effort.

TheObscure Feb 28 2015, 5:46pm replied:

The lag issues you are referring to, especially on Eastern Showdown, are caused by a RAM limit that can't be easily changed. The map basically has too much details and the game's engine can't load all those details at once. It is basically a performance bottleneck and at this moment we have no way of fixing it.

You can try to play the ordinary BF2 maps as they are much less sophisticated and will be easier on the mod.

Thanks for the info. But the AI-lag/spawn lag remains and ruins every match I try to play. A friend of mine tells me he has no such lag at all, though. Seems to be something hardware related. Guess I'm just unlucky. I'll try to find out why, maybe I find something.

most stuttering and performance issues are found and ironed out already for the next version but eastern showdown im afraid only plays 100% stable on our server, when the server takes hand on the serverside calculations.
Thought if you play the map offline with or without bots you will lag, i have the same issue as we cant make the map more stable.
This would require removing alot of our content or completley redo the maps architecture, terrain and vegitation which dont worth the effor for a single map, still try the map on our server online it has no single lag there...

Thanks Jones, I am relieved to hear that the performance issues have been tackled, can't wait for the patch. I'm currently running the mod on a private dedicated server to workaround the lag, works well so far. Anyway, Eastern Showdown really is the most extreme map when it comes to performance, 90% of the maps really work fine.

This mod is a perfect little thing - it changes the game so that it is far more playable and enjoyable than vanilla BF2. Proper damage and accuracy in this mod are nicely balanced so that you actually can kill things if you aim and shoot - in vanilla BF2, you're lucky if you can get 2 shots on an enemy with a rifle when prone, sometimes even the first flies off elsewhere; and when it takes 5-6 shots to bring an enemy down, it's horrific. This mod fixes this nicely; not so realistic that everyone…
