Usually the torrent right here from warumdarum.de is the most secure bet for you.

Ok I will try them but I am beginning to think its not going to work, I tried downloading a V2.2.exe file and when I went to install it errored..... I cannot believe that a bitorrent off the main webpage is corrupt after download as well as the files from Ausgamers, Gamearena and internode games (3 biggest game files locations in Australia).

I tried downloading to a freshly formatted D: drive and got the CRC error, I also defragged and scanned my C: drive then tried a fresh download and same problem. I am running Windows 7 home premium, pretty new installation and have been running BFBC 2 no problem as well as COD MW & MW2.......In short

HELP!

Perhaps you're getting too much packet loss with your internet connection, but that should be prevented by downloading it with the torrent. What program are you using for your torrents? I tend to use abc-torrent, but utorrent is good as well.

Have you tried those links in my post. And perhaps your D drive is compresed and therefore giving your problems. Just throwing it out there.

Hey guys thanks for your responses, I think it has something to do with my disk drive and will require a fresh install. I contacted Windows as the problem is now with any large archived file that I download. I will download on my mac and transfer via DVD and install that way. Windows said it could be a minor fault in RAM or a minor HDD error and is not related to my connection but to my hardware. Cheers for all your help though guys, helped me isolate what has been going wrong. Hopefully I will be able to get my noob soldier 'Budovski' into some fierce combat tonight!

Hey all just so you guys know. The problem I had with the CRC error on unzipping the patch files was all to do with a faulty RAM chip, game installed a breeze and works fine. The RAM was not altering any game except BF2  so I didn't automatically think of it. So if you get repeated CRC errors., 90% it will be your RAM

Cheers

I read the directions, but just to clarify... when I click the installer .exe and it asks for installation path, where should it download to? My bf2 main folder? or the bf2 mods folder?

IIRC it defaulted to my main BF2 folder. (I assume I'm answering my question now haha  ::) )

Yep. ^^ The exe looks for your BF2 registry entries and installs it to the correct folder by itself.
