Hey guys,

Im having this problem with installing the battlefield 2 update, every time I go to install it, but when it starts to patch it comes up with an error saying "patch error".

Anyone know how I can fix it? :tazz:

Thanks

Hello bobbobagan!

First thing make sure that you have at least 2.5GB of free space because the patch needs a load extra space to decompress during the install process.

It could be that the patch is corrupt, so i'd try downloading it again.

Have you installed any mods or anything like that?
