Hi everyone,

Recently I've been trying to update my Battlefield 2 from 1.4 to 1.5. It seems i have a problem and after searching the internet for hours i cant find a fix at all.

I get this message before it even starts installing the update.

if anyone could help me it would be greatly appreciated :) 

thanks a bunch,

corrupted patch? I know its a 1.5Gb lump but donwloading again might help, can you do an md5# check against a known good copy (I can help I think) so you can see if the file is the same?

I downloaded a MD5 check, but the problem is when i try and load up the patch it takes a very long time to load it. and that seems to be the problem in MD5 aswell :S.

Here's what i get:

it took 1min on a Q9550? does it newed 1.41 to update from or 1.4? I suspect a dodgy download though.

it says its full 1.5 update. Can u give me a link to a download of the patch you think will work?

have you got 1.41?

whats the md5 from the new one? same as the last one?

all i can say is reinstall from scratch (don't forget the punkbuster update) have you got room on your hdd for the installation (it includes the two booster packs + special forces). or you could try to disable all firewalls / virus checkers (pull the cable to be safe whilst doing this) and install then with out all those running?

which OS are you using, do the details on the error message tell you anything useful? do you need to install whilst runnig the patch as admin?

have you got the proper 1.5 patch, or the 1.5 beta patch? not sure there is any difference and wouldn't expect that kind of error message if here was. have seen a few posts that suggest beta was 1.2Gb, full version is 2Gb not 1.5 as I suggested earlier.

thats all ive got for now, i'm having great fun playing it, depends on who is on the server though, its worth the effort in my opinion, if only they had no-disked the patch that would have been a nice gift to the fan base. I'll be on later to see how you get on or if you have some more evidence I can work with.

how big is your patch file?
November 9, 2009 6:17:35 PM

just over 2gb

bugger, that seems to be the right file, all I can suggest is a reinstall, but if its stopping because a process is running, then you need to find what process that is, does the detail tab in the error box tell you a process name?

heres whats in the detail tab

I can email you the torrent file that I used if you want? I'm really stuck other than assuming you are serially picking up bad files.
November 9, 2009 7:21:44 PM

I think i might leave it :( 
I contacted EA and spoke on their Live chat to someone and they couldnt give me a fix, they told me to send them my dxdiag so i've done that and if i get a reply with a fix that works thats great but for now im not expecting it xD

Thank for all your help mate. I appreciate it :)

no worries, i'll get an email if you bump the topic, I'm still not convinced you've got a good download. Good luck.
