The guide is fast coming to a close. The following are some tips and tricks I’ve found which you may find handy. The files to rename are: Dice. This will mean the intro battlefield 4 bf4.exe are all skipped as BF2 starts to load.
If you find the movies playing in the background of the Login screen and Settings screens annoying, you can also rename the menu. These small files show the BF2 logo in the background, and look much nicer. Removing all the original movies from the game can save over 250MB of data being loaded up during the start of the game and being placed into memory – this will help smooth your gameplay particularly for those with less RAM. If for any reason you experience any problems with the game after renaming the movies, simply rename them back to their original names. See the Advanced Tweaking section for more details on how to use command line options. Password parameters in your command line – along with any other entries you want to put in there – you will automatically be logged in as soon as you start the game, skipping the requirement to click Login on the login screen.

A lot of people have emailed me asking for this tweak, and the easiest way I know to do it is to use this Weapons Unlocker add-on. 02, this method no longer works, and I don’t know any other way of unlocking the weapons in SP at the moment. Update: Try the methods here or here – they should work for the latest version, though I haven’t tested them. Update 2: As of the 1. Currently there is no way I know to make this tweak work properly. Several astute readers have written in to tell me it is unlikely this sort of tweak will ever work, given that the bots in the game need scripted pathways and the game developers did not invest this time into creating such scripts for the larger maps. Even if you manage to unlock to the larger maps, the bots will ignore the new sections of the map as they are not scripted for those areas.
Update: There is now a BF2 64-Player Maps Mod you can try to allow you to use the larger maps in single player. However there is a utility which allows you to do this and much more: FRAPS. This free utility will display a very accurate framerate counter in the corner of the screen. The concludes this guide, and in some ways I find it unfortunate that I couldn’t find more things to tweak in BF2.
It is the pattern with most games from EA Games that there is little genuine ‘tweakability’ allowable, and when combined with the Punkbuster anti-cheat system, experimenting with various tweaks can see you get banned from playing the game online.
