This is not Vista's fault.

It's the EA Downloader version and the way pr.exe works (my bet is it check the MD5 of BF2.exe which is different for the Downloader one).


Check the first post - there are several mirrors there. One of them will surely work.

hi there.

I got the downloaded version of bf2 so i needed the batch scripts for running PR and it worked just fine for me. now I reinstalled windows using vista 64 bit (before that i was using vista 32) and I don't get this scripts to work again. When I run run_first.bat (administrative rights of course) it always says that the system can't find the files ... I suggested it is something wrong with the paths written inside the scripts because it says "c:/program files/....." and for vista 64 users the folder is called "program files (x86)" so i changed that inside of the script files but it doesn't help.

Hey,
I just realized I did I mistake in the scripts (forgot quotes).

Here's how the final script should look like:
Code:
ECHO OFF
CLS
ECHO This will backup the original files and remove the warning screen (by renaming them to shaders_client.zip.orig)
ECHO The file will delete itself after finnishing the process.
ECHO *Edited vesrsion!*
ECHO -----

PAUSE

ECHO -----





CD /d "C:\Program Files (x86)\EA GAMES\Battlefield 2\"


CD mods\pr\_BAT scripts_





COPY ..\..\bf2\shaders_client.zip ..\..\bf2\shaders_client.zip.backup %1

COPY ..\..\xpack\shaders_client.zip ..\..\xpack\shaders_client.zip.backup %1

COPY ..\shaders_client.zip ..\shaders_client.zip.backup %1

COPY ..\movies\warning.bik ..\movies\warning.bik.backup

IF ERRORLEVEL 1 GOTO error


ECHO -----
ECHO Done!
GOTO del

:del
PAUSE

DEL run_first.bat

:error
ECHO -----
ECHO Oops...
ECHO Failed to create a backup of the shader files.
ECHO Your game instalation might be corrupted...

OK, I uploaded a new version (0.30).

There was a little problem with the path when you had to use the DIY fix - it didn't work if your game was installed on another drive than Windows is and if the path contained a space...

Are you sure about the path?

Do you have a file called shaders_client.zip in Battlefield 2\mods\bf2 ?

C:/Program Files (x86)/Games/Battlefiled 2/mods/bf2/shaders_client.zip
this file is in this directory

C:/Program Files (x86)/Games/Battlefiled 2/mods/pr/_BATCH_Scripts_.BAT
Should It be?
C:/Program Files (x86)/Games/Battlefiled 2/mods/pr/_BATCH_Scripts_/Batch.BAT

_BATCH_Scripts_ being a folder not a file?
