    According to Bazajaytee, Associate Producer on Battlefield 2 and 2142; a post was left by him that a decision would be made if Patch 1.50 (beta) would be released today or tomorrow (take note of the post time as that is their time). If anyone has been following the development of BF 2 1.50 patch it's been a year in the making. Although it's not entirely clear as to it's change log what has been said is the following:
    -Widescreen support CONFIRMED
    -Falcon addition CONFIRMED
    -disc checker removed

    There will be ranked beta servers to test the new patch. A feedback forum has not yet been revealed however one is expected. The location of where to download this patch will be provided when they are ready to release it. The patch is expected to be over 1Gig. You can follow up to date information about the release of the patch (beta) on twitter. Below are few links were the contents of the patch were discussed.

    A beta patch? BF2 is already beta enough. New map? Lemme guess, another jet whore map or a Karkand clone.

    Nonetheless, I will be downloading. :D

    Correct, they are suppose to add more content like widescreen support for example. In any case the final build shouldn't be the same as the beta.

    My fingers are crossed. I'm hoping all works well with 2142 and Vista 64bit. :toast:

    look I have no idea as I rarely use torrents except to download Linux ISOs. So in Windows, I just let the "FreeDownloadManager" torrent interface do that, and it normally does that well. This said, there certainly is better software to download torrents in Windows; I don't have them 'cause I don't really need them ;)

    edit: I just tried restarting it, both downloads and uploads at about 100 KB/s...and again the browsing in Firefox becomes extremely slow. Stopped the torrent again, and browsing is back to normal...

    Really? They got off their lazy butts and fixed the game for reals? Too bad the l4d update is due out soon or I would be all over this.

    This is a beta patch as all of the added features/functionality are not supported yet. A final version of this patch will announced later. As it stand right now, a 1Gig patch is unprecedented and should fix a lot.
