Thumbs up More Stable bf2editor.exe

Hey all,

I've been using this new bf2editor.exe which Spitfire from FH2 has made for a few months now, as well as a few other PR devs and so far, it seems to do what it says on the tin without any problems. [R-DEV]Dr Rank has seen a big reduction in crashes when working on his maps and I've also noticed fewer crashes.

I would still recommend everyone to backup the original bf2editor.exe before installing this one but so far, haven't had any issues on Win7 x64.

THIS IS INCLUDED IN THE PR BF2 EDITOR PACKAGE TO BE FOUND HERE.

Simply bf2editor.exe that can use up to 3GB (on properly configured 32bit windows) or 4GB (on 64bit windows) of RAM.

Download from here: https://www.mediafire.com/?7fjkgqkljvd75vc

So far I've received quite nice feedback on it, many mappers say they crash less when using this exe. I'm really surprised this wasn't known commonly before, as it was 5 minutes job to modify the executable.

Anyway, I hope this helps.

Cheers,
Spit (Forgotten Hope Dev)
Install by placing the new bf2editor.exe into your \EA GAMES\Battlefield 2\ folder.

This is only the .exe to run the editor, its not an installer. You have to install Bf2 Editor, then replace the exe with this one.

So far its been much more stable for me. I was editing undergrowth and overgrowth on my 4km map the other day, which normally causes either a lot of lag or a lot of crashes but it only crashed once. Other then that it was really smooth and didn't have any problems.

Tried it on a Vista 32 bit, loads the editor fine, though I tryed to open the level I was working on, it generates an exception. Tried swapping the .exe back to the original one, still the same thing. Have I missed something obvious?

did it do it with the original .exe before? If you didn't try, its unlikely to be the new .exe that's done anything and more how your running it or something.

It did work before, but I haven't loaded it up in about 3 months. I'm going to try loading the level on another computer, see if it is the file. If it is, I do keep back-ups, though unfortunately I haven't backed up in a while, which is mildly annoying. I posted hoping I missed something obvious (I'm really not tech savvy).
