Finally.. here we go, this was made 1-2 weeks ago but I haven’t got it away because of several reasons, such as I can’t upload videos to youtube But my dear friend FiskFisk33 helped me upload it (finally), so you can watch it!
I’m too tired of writing anything, but here you go! If you like it please rate and comment and I’ll make sure that I make more tutorials. If you can’t see what it says in the text, make sure High Quality is pressed and watch it in fullscreen, you won’t miss a bit.
Okey, yeha where should I start, I downloaded the latest Battlefield 2 patch yesterday. I didn’t play it tho, I just went to bed. But I did however play it today. Some of the great things that I loved was how smoothly everything ran. At the start of each round you get a bit more lag then you did before the patch, but overall It’s running way more smoothly, especially when playing Helicopter. I actually managed to play on a server where I had about 110 ping and didn’t even notice a difference from running on a 20 ping server, which is a GREAT improvement for being such an old and buggy engine. However, they also messed around with the deviation and such which makes it impossible to hit anything while laying in prone. I laughed for hours just by trying to spray people in different positions. (My god that sounds wrong.) You can seriously just jump into a bunch of enemy soldiers staying like a meter away from them and not getting hit. Also since pretty much the whole netcode seems to have been reworked, no-one can hit anything with anything. It’s darn fun, you can run around with the tank and ninja’ing the enemy helicopters. You can actually make two enemy helicopters crash into eachother cause no-one can hit with the TV-missiles! And I haven’t checked the airplanes yet but they seem to be overpowered, I did however shoot an F-35B down today, with the tank. Oh yeha, the Anti-Tank weapons are overpowered too. The sub-machineguns, not the anti-tank missiles.
Also on a short notice, I just would like to say goodbye to the Engineerisaac Network. I’m really sad, but for those of you who didn’t know, the Engineerisaac Network has been shut down. The only project left is SlideFuse, an online television software, but it includes other bits such as my softwares (how they got there I have no idea, but at least I get some publicity), but overall It’s looking very nice, and I’m working on some stuff for it that you guys will love. But I need to get more time for that.
Oh yeha, by the way, I’m sick. I think It’s the swine flu (or whatever you call it in english/american), so I’m going to check it at the hospital tomorrow.
Okey there you have a big fancy screenshot of the map, which is green. I am also kind enough to give you a DOWNLOAD LINK!11!!1!!!! (Yeha aint it awesome?)
Anyway, to some important information, first of all, you need the mod Sandbox, no the original Greenscreen map was not made in sandbox but as sandbox is much easier to use I converted it to it. Oh and by the way, you might need some standard skills in english to read the readme and knowledge on how to use Explorer. No, not Internet Explorer, Windows explorer, so you can copy the files to the right place.

Phew. Almost two weeks of LANning is over. Goddamn I’m tired. This was probably my first day “free” so to say, having time over for programming. I’ve had a wonderful 6 days together with FiskFisk33 from Blue Entertainment, a very good friend of mine. We went home from DreamHack together, just figured out we would do that like 10 minutes before I was about to go. Love impulse actions. We’ve had a lot of fun and I actually finished Guitar Hero 3 on Medium. Goddammit I’m proud, but I suck at all those kind of games so at least I have a reason for bragging about it. Fun thing is I finished the last 3 songs on medium on my first try… or actually, my first try yesterday. I’ve been trying to beat them from Sunday and Monday when I got to that level, but I didn’t seem to work it out. And suddenly I completed “One” with Metallica and “The number of the beast” with Iron Maiden, along with the Guitar Battle against lou. On the first try! And I wussed out of Slash’s guitar battle, what the!? But when I tried to go on hard I simply failed. Or well, It DOES take a lot of practice but you know I don’t like to do that. I hope fisky gets over here so I can find a reason to even try to beat anything on hard, except for left4dead which was too easy even on expert or whatever. But that’s cause I’ve always been playing that together with Sany, and he keeps saving my ass.
Now if my writing gets boring you can always check out Mozilla’s blog post about “The Fastest Fox”, where some guy plays the banjo extremely fast. Banjo Hero: Metallica? Oh sheez. Whatever, I still don’t like how there’s Firefox logos all over the place… dammit, they ARE great but isn’t that a little bit of an overkill?
Anyway, to the programming shizzle now, I actually DID some programming today. Or well, I started doing some programming today. I’m working on a Battlefield 2 (and 2142) Tweak Analyzer and Simulator. Which means, it loads every goddamn .con and .tweak file into the software, being able to manipulate, edit, add or remove stuff to it. And analyze it, of course. It’s still in the works (as I just started), but it might be a start of ModBuilder 2.0. (*Hears fans screaming in the background*). That also makes it probably a lot greater and bugless then BF2Editor…? If I succed, that is. But, there is not a lot of chance that there will be a 3d editor for it unless someone actually writes me a plugin that can read the geometry files from Battlefield 2, or if I do it myself. But then I need to learn a bunch of coding languages so that might take some time. Goddammit.
Anyway I should actually be sleeping now. You’ll have to excuse me for any spelling or grammar mistakes as I’m still kind of in that jolt-coma or whatever. Blame me! Goodnight.
There have been multiple complaints ¹ ² (plus a couple of others), I agree that the commander spotting was a weird move, but still I think it’s just a bug, because it doesn’t say anything about modified commander-spamming thingies in the changelog. Anyway, they tried doing a peition against the removal of SquadJumping in BF2 but DICE never cared. Damn them. I do like DICE but seriously, when they removed Squadjumping MANY clans left the BF2-scene. DICE cannot just IGNORE the clangaming scene just so “players on public get a better experience”, really, I don’t play much Public, and when I do I never complain because the only things worth to play in public is Tank or Heli. Seriously, how many public players would leave if DICE made a tiny little thing to help the clangaming players? NONE! Not even if they took back squadjumping or made every map Flag by Flag.
But hopefully they will keep some sort of balance, much players says that “4 grenades are too many!”. No it’s not? It’s perfect! Oh yeha they CAN be turned down to 3 if like 90% of the gamers whine on it, that wouldn’t mean anything different to me, but seriously, nade spamming will NOT be affected if you turn down the number of grenades. Maybe people will use them more wisely, but rather that they throw 1000 nades to hell then 1 in my head. And there’s still support you know, where you can give ammo to yourself.
No I’m not downloading 1.5 until final release. Maybe not even then, but as for now it looks like I’m downloading. Cause I don’t really care about the prone delay and not the commander-spotty-thingie either. I don’t play commander. At least not in a professional matter. And they say they fixed the hitbox. Is that true?
I’ve been busy lately, that’s why i haven’t written yesterday.
Anyway, to make up for that, i’m gonna release a nice little software. It’s called Battlefield 2 Profile Automatic Cleaner, or BF2PAC.
It automatically cleans your server history and your graphics cache, so you’ll login faster into Battlefield 2.

I found the channel “Engineerisaac Radio” on the Engineerisaac Ventrilo, so i putted in my music bot there and had it there for about the whole day. At the same time i’ve been working with a map, which is going great. It’s going to be a mix of Dragon Valley and Gulf of Oman, or well, what i took from Dragon Valley is the Valley and what i took from Gulf of Oman is the colors, other then that it’s completely different.
This is my first map tho, so it might not get that ultra-great, not that i’ve not worked with the Level Editor in BF2Editor before, but it’s my first serious map so don’t expect too much coming out of it.
Well, at least so far i’m happy with it. Might post some screenshots tomorrow… or today, since it’s over 00:00.
It has been quiet a boring day, until some guy added me onto Xfire and wanted me to subcscribe onto his videos.
Can’t say much more than i hate those guys and tried to make him pissed of my “stupidity”. It didn’t went too well, but it’s still funny. Subscribe!
I’ve also been modding today, something called Blue Lan Mod, a Deathmatch mod kinda.
