Project Remaster is BF2142 enhancement which aims to improve the game by adding new higher quality textures, animations and other visual tweaks along with new weapons. Join us on DISCORD.
This is the full setup for Project Remaster. It includes Update 1.3, HD Texturepack, Offline.exe, Offline profile-fix, new weapons, Singleplayer und Multiplayer support.
Servers are UP in EU!
Go into the Multiplayer->Advanced and uncheck the Punkbuster boxes until you see the server!
************************ EDIT: I released a small fix for everyone that hates the missing RDX Shotgun icon in Support class. Download and copy this file into your \Battlefield 2142\mods\Project_Remaster_MP\Objects folder and overwrite! Download Support Texture-fix ************************
What does this mean for the Mod?
Well, this time we ship a full working installer for you, containing everything you need to get the Mod running either in Multiplayer or Singleplayer.
It merges Singleplayer, Multiplayer (Remaster MP), all patches, new Weapons, offline fix and HD texture pack into one thing.
We will clear the ModDB page from the old downloads and will publish only full installers with each new update. You don't need anything else than a full installer now!
But whats new for you?
Offline Singleplayer is working out of the box now. Just install and play without much thinking.
Online Multiplayer is now supported. All kits are set up to work with unlocks (this requires a Masterserver, see next line).
Reclamation online gameservers are ready to be played on. You can now connect to Reclamation servers and play with real people online!
HD Texture pack is integrated by default and got many new textures e.g. HD images for unlocks in the customization screen, soldiers, objects etc.
New weapons are integrated now in Singleplayer and Multiplayer. PAC has a new pistol on all classes, a new Carbine for Recon, a new LMG on Support; EU has a new pistol and a new shotgun on Support.
Bugfixes on many textures. Balance changes on weapons, ammo and AI.
You need your Battlefield 2142 or Battlefield 2142 Deluxe Edition (CD/DVD/Origin/Internet etc. doesn't matter) patched to version 1.51.
To do so, click here for patch 1.50 and install it, then click here and install patch 1.51.
If you have an older version of the mod installed, you must remove it.
To do so, navigate your Windows Explorer to your /Battlefield 2142/ or /Battlefield 2142 Deluxe Edition/ install folder, open the /mods/ folder and remove all folders that have "Project Remaster" in its name.
DO NOT REMOVE THE BF2142 FOLDER!
Here you can see what to remove, as you can see i have even more Remaster folders.
Now download project_remaster_v1.3_full_setup.zip and unpack the ZIP-file somewhere on your computer.
You should see a project_remaster_v1.3_full_setup.exe and two other files that came with it.
Start the project_remaster_v1.3_full_setup.exe now and navigate through the instructions.
On the screen with tickboxes you have some options:
Next comes the installation folder, the installer should find your Battlefield 2142 folder automatically.
If not, just navigate to your /Battlefield 2142/ folder where the bf2142.exe resides in.
Example: C:\Program Files (x86)\Electronic Arts\Battlefield 2142
After the Mod is installed you can start the Mod from the "Remaster Launcher" on your Desktop.
This tool is meant to make the starting of the Mod easier.
The Remaster Launcher is divided into two parts, Multiplayer and Singleplayer.
This is the best part of this release. Let me quote the Reclamation ModDB page here:
The "Battlefield 2142 Reclamation Mod" allows players to play Battlefield 2142 Online Multiplayer again,
providing an Alternate Master Server System, as a replacement for the now shutdown GameSpy master server system. It provides ALL UNLOCKS and NEW STATS & RANKING! This is all thanks to the hard work and dedication of the Dethklok Clan.
It's more a serversystem running in the background than an actual mod. Think of a datacenter hosting servers for you to join.They host a Masterserver for BF2142 with working unlocks and stats while also providing gameservers for vanilla BF2142 in the EU and US.
But as of today there are Project Remaster 1.3 servers too!
**Our Project Remaster 1.3 servers don't require the mappack that you may have read about! This might change in future updates.**
To get running for online Multiplayer on Reclamation servers you must have the OpenSpy patch from our installer or from the BFHUB installed.
Start the game with Remaster Launcher, BFHUB or via bf2142.exe directly.
At the LogIn-screen simply click "create account" and fill in EMAIL, PASSWORD, DATE OF BIRTH and a COUNTRY.
PLEASE USE FAKE DATA HERE AS EVERYTHING YOU TYPE IN IS STORED IN PLAINTEXT!
Then you create a new soldier and get into the main menu.
Here you can open the server browser and join games, look at your stats etc.
If the Remaster Launcher won't create desktop shortcuts, start the Remaster_Launcher as admin.
If you messed up the installation, simply uninstall the Mod. To do so, open your windows startmenu and find the Folder "Project Remaster Mod", start "Uninstall Project Remaster 1.3 Full Mod Pack.exe" .
You can also open your system settings -> Apps and uninstall the Mod from there. Just search for "Project Remaster".
You get asked if you want to uninstall the OpenSpy patch too, if it is installed in the first place.
If you cannot get the online Multiplayer to work, login, create an account etc. (basicly everything online related),
then please download the BFHUB from here AND join the "Reclamation Discord" to get free, cool technical support from the guys.
If the Singleplayer or anything regarding the Project Remaster Mod (this means weapons, balance, vehicles, maps etc.) isn't working or you just have a suggestion,
then please come to our "Project Remaster Discord".
If you get weird screen glitches, steady images or frozen images while dead, looking in a specific direction or getting explosions near you, then simply disable Anti Aliasing from the games graphic settings.
See you on the online Battlefield!
