The time has come!
Good day everyone,
On Friday evening, we released the first version of our new Launcher to the masses. Things went mostly smoothly other than a few isolated issues, and the time has come to upgrade
What does this mean for me?
Not much, other than the fact we can now provide a much smoother Launcher setup process and game download system. The new launcher is also built on top of an auto-update system so you can rest assured knowing you always have the latest version. We hope to bring many
awesome features to this new platform.
Completely re-designed from the ground up, the new Launcher succeeds at patching your game executable (Say goodbye to the dreadful 'BF2RG.exe' issues!) in a flash. No longer must you launch manually or use desktop shortcuts... it's all here!
A simple setup process and even a way to download the game (+ Special Forces!) has been added as well. Once logged in, the launcher will either find your installation automatically or ask you to provide the directory. If you don't have it, it'll ask if you'd like to download the game! Easy? You bet.
Something didn't work with the new launcher... What do I do?
The best thing you can do is reply to this topic with a detailed description of the problems you're having. Screenshots, error messages, and a way to reproduce the error are always helpful. Once posted we will be ready to help you out.
I don't want to use your new launcher.
When the time comes that we have to disable support for the old game executable, you will have to use the new launcher to patch your game. We recommend everyone updates to this latest version as soon as possible.
How do I set it up?
Once downloaded and installed, you should be presented with the login screen. Enter your Battlelog.co credentials to continue.
After logging in, you should be presented with the Setup window. Here, you will be asked to find your installation directory. If you don't have it installed, it will allow you to begin the installation as well.
If your game requires a patch, you'll be presented with the following window. Just hit "UPDATE NOW" to continue.
If you have UAC enabled, you will be asked to grant Administrative privileges to our update process. Admin privileges are required to update the executable and perform other tasks to ensure you're ready to play. Unlike our previous launcher, this one works across
Once you've updated, you should be all set to play!
At this point, you can download Special Forces and change some general settings such as enabling Windowed Mode.
Lets install Special Forces. Just click the button on the bottom-right to start!
The download will begin, and installation will complete automatically. When complete, you should be able to launch it with the Mods dropdown on the start-screen.[/spoiler]
