These excellent little Apps really liven up ones game in singleplayer or Co-Op BF2. When used these allow use of the unlocks cue for Singleplayer and Co-op Lan gaming so that players can have a larger arsenal of handweapons to choose from. Use the appropriate App in accordance with your Version of BF2.

I hope to create more custom kit unlocks via a method FFOLKES shared with me, and using his method in conjunction with this App should really open up a whole new level of customization for offliners. A little late in the game, but better late than never. Details for those interested in adding more weapons are in the following posts of this thread, read on.
*****Helpful Info Not Necessarily BF2 Unlocks Related***
The 1.5 addition is very handy for those with burgeoning BF2 custom mods that stress the memory limits of BF2. With BF2 version 1.5 you lose the interaction with Commander AI (no arty, supply drops, UAV, etc) but if you want to keep adding content this is the trade off, in patch 1.5 the 2 gig memory limit is lifted that is hardcoded into BF2. I recommend using the 1.5 version only if the memory allocation error is constant (and your PC has enough memory to spare). You have to do a little editing to system files to take advantage of the extra memory if using a Windows 32-bit operation system, the following is instructions you use at your own risk. This edit is only applicable to people using 32-bit operating systems of windows. 64 bit operating systems will automatically allow more memory usage with BF2 1.5.
Project Reality Forums/ Allowing BF2 to use Memory Tutorial
I've used the above Memory Increase tutorial myself with no problems, currently. Only use the above memory edit if you are on BF2 Version 1.5. It will not work on any other BF2 versions.
***END MEMORY HELPFUL INFO***
Note that since both applications fudge stats in order to get the unlocks to work, many Antivirus programs will incorrectly flag them as trojans/viruses. I've done full system scans on my PC after use with no issues. The 1.5 version I have not thoroughly tested, but so far have had no issues with scans. Use at your own risk.

HOW DO I ADD MORE WEAPONS TO THE UNLOCKS SO I CAN HAVE MORE WEAPONS TO CHOOSE?
AND read this
I CHANGED MY WEAPONS IN THE UNLOCKS CONTAINERS BUT THEY'RE STILL THE SAME OLD WEAPONS WHEN I CHANGE THEM INGAME.
Did you rename your Unlock Containers? If they share the same name anywhere else in any other kits you will have conflicts. If they have the same name as the default Unlock Containers the default unlocks will be ingame instead. Rename everything like the example given in the "HOW DO I ADD MORE WEAPONS" links.
