HER | Battlefield 2




When this game was released I really loved the maps, weapons, vehicles, sounds, effects, environments... really almost everything except one thing which was so bad that killed the game for me... realism. Until the lack of real objective can be forgiven, but not a game that you need to waste a full clip to kill just ONE soldier in front of you...


Was such a waste have a so great game destroyed to make it easy, but so easy that until in Quake you will kill/die more fast than in Battlefied 2.



Well, after almost 2 years without play the game, I realized that Christmas was coming and I'll have my family over here in almost days of December, and BF2 could be a great game to play in LAN, since have BOTs, lots of stuff to do, explode, kill, etc... and after the success of HER Airborne, I was thinking... why not save this game too? That's how all started...



Wasn't difficult to MOD aside it's a VERY DIFFERENT engine than Quake and Unreal which I'm more familiar, but when I finaly found how works, was very easy.

I know about Project Reality, which is a amazing MOD with a lot more stuff and serious gameplay than mine, but was more close to simulation and will not work well to play with people that don't use to play much FPS games, so I made a smaller and smartter MOD to add realism to the game without change many files and create big packages of thousands of megas to download, and keeping the original fun gameplay.



Features:
1. All Weapons are Deadly Now (Pistols Inclued)
2. Anti-Tank a lot more powerfull, so infantary aren't "unarmed" targets anymore
3. Damage of Tanks shots are a lot more powerfull
4. Well balanced weapons to give a nice and fun gameplay
5. And Yeah! Now you can play as Sniper if you wish!
6. Blood FX
7. More Bots to Play on COOP MODE in LAN
8. New Bot Names (Clan members from BC, 3rL and NER)

!!! If your game became slow with HER please read below !!!

Few people complained about the game became slow when playing with HER Battlefield 2. These things can happen because this MOD changes the default number of bots from 16 to 48 and increase their intelligence, so these features will request more CPU to process.

So if you are having this problem, your machine is not fast enough to take care of so many bots. Please install the patch below to comeback to have just 16 bots.

Download - For Slow Machines Only
HER Battlefield 2 - For 16 Bots Only

Just unzip inside your Battlefield 2 folder telling to overwrite the files then you will have the problem solved. Again, this is only for people who is experiencing lags during the gameplay using HER, if you are not having problems, you should not install this patch.
