I have been modding Battlefield 2 for about four years now. My specialty is animation mixing and blending but I'm pretty experienced in a variety of areas, including BFmeshviewer and 3ds Max. I have also done a lot of work with texture editing and mesh hacking, with a focus on realistic specular lighting and shading effects. I have released some of my work on my YouTube page. If you click on the homepage link on my profile, that should take you to my channel.

Looking good! I love how sharp and crisp everything looks. Keep it up :)

If you read the loading text you’ll understand why US forces are using MEC kits ;)

You can try going to My Documents/Battlefield 2 and deleting the Profiles folder, but this is likely related to a hardware issue/not enough memory

Open objects_server_weapons/weapons/handheld/medikit and delete medikit.con

My suspicion is that it is a RAM limitation. On my computer the game uses over 2GB of RAM before any map is even loaded. After playing a few maps the RAM builds up and the game eventually crashes.

Make sure you installed the ESAI folder in mods/bf2!

Compatibility with BFHD patch F. If you don't use BFHD or your installation works fine, you don't need to update!

I have updated the mod to work with BFHD PatchF! You'll need to download the updated core files and the BFHD map pack.

Here is the old version of the mod without the medkit hotfix: Mediafire.com
I'm not sure, I'll try to figure out a way to make the mod work on low spec computers. Maybe a low-resolution texture pack or something.

I assume you have an integrated graphics card?
I suspect that the issue may be hardware related unfortunately. I'll upload the old version of the mod somewhere and you can try to see if that still works.

Good job with the texture editing, you captured the alpha channel look well!

What operating system are you using?
How much RAM and VRAM does your computer have?
Has anything changed about your computer since you last played the mod (before the update)?
Try going to My Documents and renaming the 'Battlefield 2' folder to something else.

Oh right! You also need to go into shaders_client_custom and delete nametag.fx

Go to menu_server.zip/nametag/ and delete nametags.con

Can you right click on your EA GAMES\Battlefield 2\BF2.exe, go to properties, and check if it has any compatibility mode enabled?
Are you using Reshade?
Also try copying the Localization, Settings, and Shaders folders from mods/bf2 to mods/Heat_of_Battle.

Are you running on vanilla BF2 or BFHD?

It works with both! See the installation article here: Moddb.com

Crap! I thought I had fixed this. So the previous version worked and now it's crashing with the new update?

phale @ [RELEASE] Christmas Update!

I really appreciate the review! Past Reshades were great but they didn't amount to a whole lot besides color correction. With the new Reshade, skies look so much brighter and more vibrant, and you really get a sense that the sun is bathing the environment in light. And the reflective bumpmapping and MXAO in the high setting bring modern rendering techniques to an old game. I've been tinkering with the new Reshade settings for several months now and every time I have to take a step back and think, "I can't believe this is BF2!"

No significant changes, mostly just some very minor tweaks to vehicle textures and vehicle wrecks. You probably won't notice anything ;)

phale @ Special Forces Map Pack

This has been updated and is ready to use with the Christmas update :)
There haven't been any significant changes, only adding the Challenger 2 tank to replace the M1A2 on Ghost Town and Warlord.

Right now the bottom one looks better, but I think the top one could look better with some texture and lighting adjustments ;)

The latest version of the Christmas update includes a potential fix for the black screen CTD at startup. I don't know if it works since I've never been able to recreate the CTD myself, but I think it should work!
