Install_on_different_PC - bf_Klag14 - 08-06-2011 08:49 AM

i havent found an anwer on google or forum-search

As my Internetconnection at home is very slow i downloaded the game on another location, is it possible to transfer the files to my homePC so i can play without redownloading everything. Hope it will, my connection at home interrupts too often to say let it load and go to sleep or something like that its just enough to play, ok it was for BF2Smile

instal in standard folder

Code:
C:\Program Files\EA Games\Battlefield Play4Free

You can try to create the registry values yourself. Depending your Windows version, copy&paste the following code into notepad, and save it as e.g. bfp4f.reg
For 32bit Windows:
Code:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Electronic Arts\EA Games\Battlefield Play4Free]
"Installation Dir"="C:\\Program Files\\EA Games\\Battlefield Play4Free"
"Language"="EN"

For 64bit Windows:
Code:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Electronic Arts\EA Games\Battlefield Play4Free]
"Installation Dir"=C:\\Program Files\\EA Games\\Battlefield Play4Free"
"Language"="EN"

After you saved it as a .reg file, you can import it to your registry by double-clicking on it Wink

Just make sure the value for "Installation Dir" reflects your actual installtion directory Wink

After you copied the game folder and created the registry keys, make sure to also run the pbsvc_p4f.exe in your game folder (or the pb subfolder) and select "Install/Re-Install PunkBuster Services". You might otherwise get problems with PunkBuster Wink

No matter how or where I try, the installer demands in downloading and my South Africa link is VERY SLOW!

Tanis,
you forgot to put a quote mark before "C:\\Program Files\\... etc"
so for those that are trying to do this on 64-bit, then it should be like:

Code:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Electronic Arts\EA Games\Battlefield Play4Free]
"Installation Dir"="C:\\Program Files\\EA Games\\Battlefield Play4Free"
"Language"="EN"

Thanks guys! REALLY HELPED!! Big Grin Btw, for 64 bit comps, if you may face some trouble if you put your the folder into Program Files (x64) .. the (x64) is pretty important!!!

Could you be a bit more specific about your problem?


RE: Install_on_different_PC - OnlyGodjudgeMe - 05-02-2012 11:02 PM

Read my reply to your other post. You didn't copy the complete code Wink


RE: Install_on_different_PC - Ghostrider0067 - 07-02-2012 05:22 AM

Quick question, HomeSen..

Would this still work if you were going from a 32bit to 64bit OS? It doesn't affect me right now but it will when I build my new rig. Just checkin'. Smile

Jupp. Just make sure to copy the "64-bit code" Wink
On 64-bit Windows OSes, the 32-bit applications have their own "kind-of-sub-registry" that gets loaded into the "Wow6432Node" key. When they ask for the "Software" sub-key, they actually get what is below that additional node.

This already once caused me a huge headache, when writing a [url=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Computer_telephony_integration]CTI[/b] client. I had to check several registry values (like e.g. phone number formatting, country and region code, etc.). But since I use a 64-bit version of Windows, and compiled the executable as 32-bit binary, I always just got an empty result Angry
Took me almost 2 days to figure that one out.

Nice. Thanks for the reply. Once I go the route of 64bit OS, I'll definitely be moving it over.
