I have a school laptop, it runs Battlefield 2 easily, but it doesn't start when I'm not connected to the school network (usually when I'm home).
I have a feeling it is to do with My Documents, is there any way I can change the directory the game uses?

i would doubt it's specifically your "my documents" folder. when there's a redirection of system folders like that (which is typical on a larger network) the computer will use a local version of that folder when the network version isn't available (offline files is enabled by default for redirected system folders).

did you install the game while it was connected to the network at school? if so, you may have selected a network drive for part of the install. i'd suggest uninstalling/reinstalling the game

did you install/uninstall it while connected to the school network? you didn't really answer that.

also, with a lot of games you have to make sure it completely removes all of the data files and such otherwise it tries to keep some of the files around just in case you change your mind.

Sorry, yes, I've tried uninstalling and installing again at home, while not connected to the network, and yes, I learnt about files not being uninstalled with Unreal Tournament 3, quite annoying.
