Classic BF2 Vanilla feel, but now with realistic HD look, increased immersion and replaced the crappy infantry game play for a realistic 2018 model. Which for me, was the only thing that always sucked in BF2.
Real Ballistic Environment 2.0, now includes:
More detailed Higher resolution clouds, some new HDR sky models, added Vanilla Sky for Karkand and HD storm environment for Harvest. HD Sky, clouds and sunflare in all maps.
Including all rocks, grass, gravel, dirt, sand and also all the roads.
Myanmar, Smoke Screen, Blue Pearl
All maps have real immersive ground vegetation rework, the most tropical or wild ones received all new HD undergrowth made from the ground with new custom HD textures and models for grass, bushes, dead sticks, leaves, flowers, palms and tropical plants.
Even the kits received more advanced ray-traced Object Space normal maps.
Extensively tested and reviewed, all the maps have 64 player areas and epic 64 players game modes now!
(Edit) - For that, Grappling hook and zip line must be removed from the kits, otherwise it's unstable and sux
For Wide screen monitors and higher resolution displays, with updated modern look.
With custom, godrays, HDR, bloom, luma sharpen, vignette, technicolor, SMAA and clarity effects

BFHD PatchB now comes in a complete straight forward one-click and follow up installer. Dumb-proof for guys like me that always had problem putting BF to work. Everything you need will pop up during the process, just follow the lights.
It now have HD color and bump textures with new HD specular and glossiness effect for the rifle and the scope.
Fixed base 3D model and added LODs for better performance
Added new 3D Lenses Model and HD textures for scope reticle in both views, now using Alpha transparency technique.
Fixed zoom out after fire feature, to make it similar to other BF rifles (with zoom out after fire)
It was already using RBE Ballistic tweak and projectile files.
Found it didn't have my new water lily model so I decided to add it, problem was I couldn't find my HD water lilys anymore, so yep, why not do everything from the ground? And here it is, Shongua one of the most hideous map in the BF history is now part of the top most amazing league.
Found some problem in the AMR weapon and ammo/medick kit that were causing Single player stability issues, fixed them! Single-player stability and performance has been vastly improved!I was able to play every map I've tested till the end without a single crash!
Also bots will use the AT bazooka much less on infantry now
Multiplayer stability is 110%
7-18% performance improvement due to removed extra geometries for thrown medic pack and ammo box, they now don't become a box with new geometry (6k Polys) when thrown on the ground, they remain at the same geometry than when you hold it in your hands and also have throw physics now.
Seems not much? make the count, 6k poly x 10 keep projectiles x 64 players...that is a huge ammount of polys for any engine. They also didn't have LOD's before and now they do. Plus the medic pack which also reduces in 1.7k Polys x 10 x 64, the amount os polys being processed.
Cleaned up duplicated textures and sound files and fixed some file patches, so the game uses a bit less memory also now.
Total game size is 200MB smaller (but now it includes new HD content and DirectX Redist so the pack stays at 6GB)
Fixed wrong game modes on ManshtuurHD 16 and 32 conquest game modes
Fixed old Terrain Shader black dots issue on some rare systems.
Reduced the infantry Lod factor a bit in every map for more performance increment!
Better stability and performance and now also works on 32 bit systems.
Reduced damage for Scar HSV by 7% and added 8% more recoil
10% more Sraw and Smaw AT damage with larger explosion radius and improved damage model and tweak/projectile files
Re-Worked Ammo bag and Medic Pack code, ammo bag now works how it was on BF2 Vanilla
Medic pack code is brand new and much more balanced, it doesn't instantly recharge your life to 100% after being shot by a .50 Cal.
It restores yours health as a progress bar now, so you need to hide to get restored and not jump around throwing packs. Of course the more packs you have around faster you will be restored.

This is Battlefield 2 like you have never experienced it before! If you are like me, and most other people, vanilla BF2 infantry gameplay has always felt lackluster, and left a lot more to be desired. The weapons in regular Battlefield 2 always had almost no recoil, or the bullets deviate all over the place. This always resulted in sloppy gunplay. Well, this conversion brings not only better infantry combat, and better weapon and bullet dynamics, but it also visually exceeds in stunning detail…
