  1. Hey,


    I recently tried to update battlefield 2 from EA which ofcourse did not work, so i uninstalled battlefield 2 completly restarted my PC , closed all my backround tasks and was going to reinstall it , but not even after 2 minuts of progress it said installation failed try again from the begining, now i tryed a few time and it always seem to stop in the same spot , when it says Program files/EA Games/mods/Dalian plant/client .


    anybody can help me out on this?



    Thanks.

    Try cleaning that disk. Sometimes there is a speck of dirt, fingerprint, oil, scratch or the like.

    BTW, what kind of update were you installing? Some update files need a prior update already installed to work. Others are full updates which include previous updates.

    Would torrenting a copy and burning onto a new DVD help, only after the above step has failed to yield positive results? I mean, he has a legal key right, so would downloading an illegal copy be illegal in that sense, seeing that he already has a legal one? Or would he be able to get the disk replaced with a fresh one?

    The 1.3 patch comes in two flavors. One is an incremental patch that requires previous patches to be installed first and there is a full or complete patch that includes previous patches. The full patch is about 438MB and the incremental is about 83MB.
