Hello all,

I just want to ask about BF2 menu. I am not talking about the background or the music but the SWF itself. Is there a way I could edit the menu? Or maybe, borrow from other mods? Is there a Menu editor somewhere, or a tutorial at least, that allows me to change the location of the buttons etc..? The classical bf2 menu is kindof boring and was hopping to edit it somehow (Just like in PR, but not exactly the same).
Also, I am looking the get rid of all the information from the loading screen and somehow put a picture and the loading bar.

Any help, tips, links, or simple info are much appreciated.

You'll probably need some photo editing software. I use a freebie called Gimp. Many others here use Paint.net. You may need to download .dds plugins for those to edit BF2 image files.


As far as tutorials go I don't know of any, but another way to learn is to reverse engineer one that is already made. A popular one is the BF3 look-a-like HUD.

Hello MasterChief,

Thanks for your reply,
Just so I make myself clearer, and make sure I understood you correctly. I already have Photoshop with DDS plugin. I use it for texturing etc... However, the menu, located in Menu_Cilent/ External/ FlashMenu/ MainMenu.swf is flash. I do not see the use of GIMp/PAINT or Photoshop (Can you clarify about their use in that context?). My focus is on the main menu, for it to become something like the Georgian Conflict Mod Or PR... Or Insurgent Strike. I'd like to play around it, recloate the buttons etc... I have not found any tutorial regarding the Main Menu and was hopping someone can help me around it.

As for the HUD, I'll be looking up ways to remove the health bar/ Crosshair etc.. Just to make it more.. realistic. (I'll appreciate any tutorials, otherwise, I'll try hard until I give up and ask around).

Thanks again Master!

Maybe the following link can help you. I have no idea how it works or if you can make changes with it. Good luck.

Edit: I think you might need another flash program to be able to edit.

OMG! I have been hoping someone would explain how to edit the flash menu for BF2! That looks great. Thanks for pointing this out.
