A few questions… Please answer

1. I am a bit of a newbie to BF2 so is there a server for newbies?
2. Is there a way to play offline on a self made local server with 64 bots?
3. If I install the custom maps patch, does id add new maps or replace the old ones?

    1) It depends from players who join server.
    2) Yes.
    3)Do you mean custom map pack from our downloads page? Our custom map pack contains maps which are not included in oficial BF2 game or patches. So they are not replacing anything – they will be new files.

    Thank you for your response Firefly. Can you give me some tips to be good at the game (especially how to gun down others)? And how can I unlock weapons? Is there something I have to do like a certain amounts of kills? And is there a patch which will unlock all weapons and all sizes of the maps for singleplayer on both main game and special forces (with the coresponding number of bots, once I got a mod that did unlock all map sizes but the bots were still 16). I would be very grateful for your response.
    And one last thing, why is the online community so short? I mean its a great game and all…

    Yes this is great game. Unfortunately after GameSpy shutdown, EA didnot do anything to keep it alive.
    About full size maps for singleplayer – try search on google or here at https://megagames.com/mods/battlefield-2-single-player-64-maps-mod?noradio=1
    Im not sure is there something for SpecialForces avaiable, but you can try look for your self.
    To have all weapons unlocked on our server you can use “weapon unlock” file from our downloads page – simply replace it with your bf2.exe.
    To play good on multiplayer server you must practice more with online players not against bots.

    Can anyone tell me if what do the heroes mod and sandbox mod do? Should I get them?

  5. Green_revolution

    I have put the heroes mod in the bf2 folder as instructed but how do I run it???

  6. Green_revolution

    please someone give me a step by step guide of installing and then running the heroes mod I really wanna play this one.

  7. Firefly

    If you added mode correctly, then just open your BF2 game > navigate to “Community” tab > select “Custom games” tab > choose mode you want to play > click Activate.

    Thank you so much friend and sorry for bugging you again and again (boy I really do suck). Just one last question, is there a way to create a separate launch icon (desktop shortcut) for the heroes mod so that I can have shortcuts for the original and heroes at once? Once again really sorry for the trouble.

  9. Firefly

    No problem.
    Yes you can make separate shorcuts. Create new shortcut from BF2.exe > open properties for it and add to “Target” line:
    +modPath mods/Heroes +menu 1 +fullscreen 1
    Be carefull – between ” + there should be only one space.
    BTW you can create shortcuts for other modes you have in same way – just replace “Heroes” to mode name you have added.
