Hi

Having got over my blue screen from last week, (dont worry Fluke its not just you) I have installed BF2, all went well, I have installed patch 1.5 but it stopped half way through, so I unintalled BF2, started again from scratch put on the original game from CD, then went to install the 1.5 patch but it comes up and says, "newer version already installed" so still no install 1.5!

Any ideas - Don?

Downloaded a new copy of 1.41 still the same, update/patch fails then when I start the game and the follwoing message comes up -

"mods/bf2/shaders/lightning.fx not found!!! _Do_check your working directory, _AND_ Sync your shaders folder before calling upon your local rendering programe/GP. (really!)"

Now going to un-install all again and try again

Which update causes that error, the 1.41 or the 1.50?
If either update fails with a message then you may have a corrupt downloaded copy.

Also make sure you delete the BF2 folder form My Documents before installing again.
