BF2 won't let me patch

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I have two partitions on my hard drive, and my games are installed on the secondary (non-boot) partition, F:\\ "Games and Files". I try to run the 1.12 patch, and it says I don't have enough space on my drive to patch, I need at least 3GB. Thing is, F drive has 45GB free, but my C:\\ has 500MB free. I want it to install on F but the ****ing geniuses at EA seem to have made the patch to not ask where to install it.

Any way around this? Anyone else have this problem?

You should be able to direct the path of the patch.

I'm pretty sure you can't select a path. It automatically goes to your master drive. I've seen people complaining about this elsewhere on the net, but no solutions, besides reinstalling on the boot drive. (As mentioned)

I thought I just saw a bug report for Battlefield 2s latest patch on EAs site... well, it may not have been Battlefield 2 but it was definitely an EA game

basically, where you can define the path to the game, such as "C:\\Program Files\\Game\\", the patch cannot read the location if theres a \\ at the end of the location you define... you have to remove the \\ and change the path to "C:\\Program Files\\Game"

Question
Why is there a 'Patch Failed' error message when installing patch version 1.12?

Answer

In order to install update 1.12 you will need to ensure you have at least 3.0 GB free space. Although all of this space will not be used, the patch files need the extra space to decompress during the install process.
To check your current free hard drive space:
  1. Open My Computer.
  2. Right-click on your hard drive and choose Properties.
  3. Your Free space will be listed in both bytes (the large number) and either MB (megabytes) or GB (gigabytes).
Free space should read as 3.0 GB or more to install the patch.

If you still get the error, you may have a corrupt download of the patch. Try downloading the patch from one of the other download locations listed for the update on http://www.eagames.com/official/batt.../downloads.jsp.

If the issue continues to manifest, you can manually install the patch files.
  1. Run the 1.12 patch installer again and select the language.
  2. Click Next, and then stop on the 'Welcome to the InstallShield Wizard for Battlefield 2 Patch v1.12' screen.
  3. Click on Start and then Run.
  4. Type %temp% in the Run box and hit Enter.
  5. Click on View at the top of the window and choose Arrange Icons By and then Modified.
  6. Scroll to the end of the list. The last folder icon should have an alpha-numeric code for the name such as {3D3B4B03-9974-4B03-B7B2-FAB1919C8E3D}. This code name is randomly generated per system, but should be the last folder listed.
  7. Open this folder.
  8. There should be another alpha-numeric named folder inside. Open this folder.
  9. Click on Edit at the top of the window and choose Select All.
  10. Click on Edit again and choose Copy.
  11. Close all open windows except for the installer.
  12. Open My Computer and navigate to the game folder.
    • By default this is C:\\Program Files\\EA GAMES\\Battlefield 2.
  13. Once in the Battlefield 2 folder, right-click on an empty space in the window and choose Paste. This should copy the patch files to the game folder.
  14. Double-click on the Patch.exe file (the icon for this file looks like a window). This should be one of the files copied over.
  15. This will prompt the files to update. When it completes patching, you may close the installer widow.
You should now be patched to version 1.12.

If you receive an error with patching and require further explanation, check the My Documents\\Battlefield 2\\Dmp\\patchlog.txt file for error specifics. Your error code can be referenced at http://www.bccsoftware.com/support/t...atcherrors.asp.
