Battlefield 2 Servers Released

This Battlefield 2 Community Update announces the availability of the retail Win32 and Linux unranked servers for Battlefield 2 in preparation for the imminent availability of the shooter sequel. The downloads are mirrored on 3D Gamers, (Germany), FileFront, Gameguru Mania, Gamer's Hell, and Worthplaying. The update also includes word on vulgar usernames, plans to release the editor soon, details on the Battlefield 2 launch party, and the following warning for server operators:

In anticipation of next week's launch of Battlefield 2 at retail, we are releasing the Unranked server files for Win32 and Linux. Be advised that, as with the demo, servers that are caught allowing users to play with the unlock weapons using the python workaround will incur a one week ban from the server list. While we encourage mod teams to discover cool things to do with the python scripts, we reserve the right to de-list servers that find ways to undermine the core features of the game using these tools. We will be sure to update the community when we do begin punishing a tweak that falls into this category.

If you are going to tweak the Python files and you are unsure whether you might be doing something that DICE and EA would consider undermining a core game feature, please feel free to send a note to and ask for our feedback. We want to re-affirm that for the most part anything goes on Unranked servers.

No, you can't do anything you want with the game just because you're running a server. It's not open source software.

that's crap, though.

nobody said it was open source, and nobody is playing with the source code... unranked servers should be allowed to serve the game how they want (like just about any other game in existence...). just take hl as an example... servers are allowed to serve however they want with no centralization or intervention from valve or whoever, and that's the way it should be.

people on ranked servers will still look forward to earning those weapons - on ranked servers. if they want to play on an unranked server with weaps unlocked, then that's their prerogative... it's about choice, and EA (from the sound of the possibly flawed release notes), is going to be removing that choice forcibly... and for no conceivable reason, as far as i can see...
