The release of the BF2 1.5 patch caused a couple of things to break in AIX2's online conquest and co-op game modes, as server admins are no doubt aware. Ti_GER arn354 has engineered a hotfix workaround so you can get back up and running instantly.

*** AIX2 client players DO NOT need to install this hotfix: It is for AIX2 server admins ONLY. ***

Changes:

The deployable mortar has been disabled - any attempt to select it will result in the previous weapon being re-selected.

Under BF2 1.5 online, no ammunition magazine may contain more than 1023 rounds. The AH-1X, A-10, A-10b, AH-64, AH-64 Gunship,Rooivalk, Yak-38 and Blizzard all broke this rule by varying degrees, but now have a maximum of 1000 rounds in the offending magazines. A side-effect is that the ammo-bar for an affected magazine will only fill up to the level set by the new 1,000 round limit, and so may not look completely full.

Installation instructions and details are in the ReadMe. Please read it completely before you make any changes.

Updated Download Link

Please note that 2.0c is the current version.

not to me it doesn't but i don't speak python. but seeing as the hotfix only has 2 files (__init__.py and objtweaker.pyc) plus the readme, i couldn't tell you where that other stuff came from.

5.) AIXS serveradmins ONLY - please temporarily disable AIXS-Ranking and use python/bf2 from BF2Server v1.5 .


You still try to use the AIXS ranking-files - those are *.pyc . You do not have a clean <BF2Server>/python/bf2 from BF2Server v1.5 . You have mixed files - AIXS-Rankingpython and BF2Server1.5-python.

NOTE: The fix goes as mentioned in mods/aix2/python/game

@neo - you mean use/show rank and unlocks? If you removed redirect you get those informations from gamespy vanilla bf2.

@ all - Sorry i missed that the AIX_AH64gunship has two cannons which both had too much ammunition. Thx to Lolsmurf for pointing that out.

NOTE: This fix is for AIX2 - not for any customized//cloned vehicle in any community mappack.
We are not responsible for any tweaked aircraft other people introduce in their mappacks (e.g. TNG ).

You have for sure updated modmanager-scripts to 2.0. You have to use a edited version of modmanager-scripts .

Hi all,

maybe this is a stupid question, but I am not shure if we need to patch our AIX2 or not.

As I understand, the patch is for servers (dedicated?) only.

We usually play this way, that one of us opens under "Multiplayer" a "Lan Server erstellen" and the others log into it (via I-Net) using the IP of the PC who is the server.

As this is no dedicated server, but a client who is "serving", does this mean the hotfix is not required to upgrade the AIX installation and it will still work when we patch BF2 to 1.5?

Thanks for your help.

cheers

Nasenjaeger
