BF2 and BF2142 Downtime This Week

The Battlefield Blog announces some scheduled downtime for Battlefield 2 and Battlefield 2142 this week, though this is due to a server move, rather than new patches for either of these DICE military shooters. Word is: "This is a quick and friendly notice about GameSpy's future datacenter move. They're on track for a move date of Wednesday, August 25 starting at 10:00 p.m. (22:00) Pacific Daylight Time. This will affect BF2 and BF2142 and they will be offline for approximately 6 hours starting at that time. This is not a patch for either Battlefield 2 or Battlefield 2142. All played stats and accounts will remain unchanged during this transfer."

I bought 2142, World in Conflict, and Quake 4 retail disks and none of them allow me to enter my product serial number into steam to get a steam version.(eventhough I think steam sells WIC but wont let me get in with my retail disk serial number)
The only game you have EVER been able to do this with (IIRC) is Unreal 3.

Just a tiny bit off.

That's probably not poetic license huh?

I would love a steam version of 2142. It is one of the few games I would still like to play again since I became a steam man. I bought 2142, World in Conflict, and Quake 4 retail disks and none of them allow me to enter my product serial number into steam to get a steam version.(eventhough I think steam sells WIC but wont let me get in with my retail disk serial number)
Shout ouuuuuuts!!!

I too use EADM for 2142 and so far its been OK for me, but when it was EA Link wow, it seemed like every new update would break my 2142 install. Sometimes I had to go in and edit the registry to get it working again, and EA actually told you to do it!

I take it you tried removing and reinstalling EADM? What OS are you running? I've had it work OK on Vista and 7.

I used to play 2142 a lot, but about a year ago EA's DRM scheme started saying I didn't have EA Download Manager installed (even though I do), and hasn't allowed me to play it since. Multiple emails and even a phone call to EA proved to be futile.

Lesson learned: Never buy from EA Download Manager store. They'll rip you off. It sucks too because I really enjoyed 2142.

The last time GameSpy did one of these 2142 had some funky server browser stuff happen for a few weeks after, hopefully it doesn't happen again.

Speaking of 2142, patch 1.51 + 7 maps + Steam release will be very nice, hopefully it happens soon! If you are a BF fan and haven't played it pick it up when it comes out, Titan modes is great. Smitten
