I've just bought the deluxe version of the game, with the Northern strike booster pack. I don't think I've ever had so much trouble trying to get a
game to work. After installing the game, I was eager to play it, unfortunately the game refused to run, complaining that some emulation software has
been detected. I tried Windows XP, XP 64 and Vista and it still refused to run.
I then went to EA games website to search for help. So I started to create an account so that I can log in and try and find a solution to my problem.
Then for some stupid reason, it refused my email address, claiming that it was already in use. So I decided to create a new MS hotmail email
address and use that instead. I then had the same problem again, claiming my email address has already been used.
In the end I decided to do some googling and see if anyone else had the same problem. Thankfully I found a solution, even though it took me most of
the day. I came across this article, whereby apparently lots of people are having the same problems.
EA apparently don't give a s***, but what's new.
Anyway here's the solution.
Download and upgrade the game to 1.50 if you haven't already and then copy over the new bf2142.exe file. The game should now run, enabling you to
create an account within the game. You then use the same details to create an account at the EA games forum and use this account to register the
serial number of the Northern Strike Booster pack. Hopefully you'll now be able to play the game.
I've only just started playing this game and I'm pretty hopeless at it. Any tips would be greatly appreciated.
