    title says it all really.... :D but to be more specific, why the hell doesnt my mouse work in-game? menus and stuff its fine, just not in game... dont tell me farwank doesnt support USB mice? if it makes a diff its fully patched to v1.4, yes, i just re-installed it cos i was bored and checked for any updated patches..

    The new EA downloader will @#%@ up BF2, BF2 SF, and 2142. You have to do a system restore to fix it. Let that be known too,.
