Ahoy, all eyes and levitra cheap ears! Since the release of our open beta two weeks ago, our crew has been spending plenty time below-deck, fixing up the unforeseen issues and bugs that many have encountered. Today, we're happy to announce the cialis pills from canada first update for Battlefield Pirates 2; our witty and creative naming committee has dubbed it as version 1.2 (spoiler: 1.1 was an internal build).

This major overhaul not only features a range of bug fixes, including for the notorious crash issues, but also introduces a couple new treats to our swashbuckling mod. In addition, the developers have done their magic and have been able to reduce the file size as well as fix the broken maps, delivering a more stable game for all pirates out on the Seven Seas. Here is how you grab the update:

BFP2 1.2 can be downloaded from multiple websites, including, but not limited to, FilePlanet, FileFront, and Wolf. Please click here for more mirrors. The total download size for BFP2 1.2 is 351 MB. Please notice, that 1.2 is not a patch, instead it is a full installer. Therefore, it is vital that you uninstall the previous version of BFP2 from your hard drive.

Need help in installing Pirates? Want a quick overview of the canadian zithromax for sale classes and kits? See our fresh Player's Manual! Here are step-by-step instructions, too:
  • (1) If you have played BFP2 before, uninstall the previous version via Control Panel -> Add or Remove Programs -> Battlefield Pirates 2 - Release 1.0 or delete the /bfp2 folder on your hard drive, typically located at C:\Program Files\EA Games\Battlefield 2\mods\
  • (2) Pick a mirror and download the installer to a place on your computer you can remember. When the download is finished, go to this folder and double-click on the installer.
  • (3) Follow the on-screen instructions. When the installer prompts for an installation location, make sure it points to your \Battlefield 2\mods\ folder.
  • (4) You need to create a shortcut for BFP2 or open it via the community-tab in BF2 to play BFP2. Please see this Wiki article for detailed instructions.
  • (5) Start plundering!
Server administrators: the server versions are available here.

---===---

So, what did we really change? Here's a short change list:
  • Fix: Removed additional unnecessary content, resulting in a smaller mod file size of 351 MB
  • Fix: Black Beards Atoll now works
  • Fix: Rebuilt static barrel to fix any problems it was causing
  • Fix: Networking-related CTDs corrected
  • Fix: Zipline-related CTDs corrected
  • Fix: Some sounds that were not working in 1p/3p now do
  • Fix: Localization issues causing flag names to not appear correctly in game messages
  • Change: Lightmapped Dead Calm ships now have shadows from sunlight
  • Change: New deviation components and buy cialis 20mg online crosshairs added to all weapons
  • Change: Loadout changes to some kits
  • Change: Increased the damage of the cutlass slightly
  • Change: Small tweaks to the sniper rifle
  • Change: Material damaging system overhauled
  • Change: Reverted to raw BF2 Python
  • New: Effects to cannons and other large weapons
  • New: LODs for the large objects on Storm the Bastion and Dead Calm
  • New: The French Pistol is now available.

Do to the drastic changes, we could not produce a patch. It requires a fresh install.

(4) To play, you need to activate BFP2. Please see this Wiki article for detailed instructions.

That looks kinda not noob friendly

Considering the amount of show stopping bugs in last release AND the fact that even EA cant patch BF games with out breaking them, its definetly better to have a full release. I know it sucks for people with poor connections though.

Hi gang,

We had a great crowd last night, up to 56 pirates at times.

Unfortunately the server had a hard crash around 1:30AM EDT and could not restart itself ...

I have manually restarted it now, if any Pirates are around now, come join us at Cain's Lair...

Hi pirates!
It's nice to hear, that there should be less CTDs now and other types of cialis i like your problem-fixes (ctd, language files, bba, sound). BFP2 was the best and my favourite mod for bf2, but now there are some points i don't like about the newer version:

- the sniper rifle tweaks, eg. the crosshair in zoomed-mode
- there are no bombs for sharpshooter
- the modified pistol
- just 1 bomb for gunner

I didn't play so much with the new mod and can't tell more atm, because it wasn't so much fun playing the new verison and i left the game after playing 2 maps Mad
In my opinion esspecially these changes written above are very bad! I prefer the previous ones ;)

To improve the mod and get an intermediate version of 1.0 and 1.2, eg. sniper could get just 1 bomb (but not 0), gunner could get a more heavy bomb (heavy enough, to open the entrance at the bastion) or 2 smaller bombs, maybe like they have been before. Anyway the sniper should get as it was before the update (and yes, i read the posts of those, who wanted to change the sniper; those who don't like to get sniped, should move and not camp).

I hope this will help you while working on the next update Smile
