Gah... so either widescreen AA and crap FOV or widescreen FOV with no F'ing AA.

This patch is really doing my head in. I'm gonna go plug the megadrive in and play Sonic 2, atleast that works.

I have crappy monitor so no widescreen FOV doesn't bother me.

I have nice smooth edges though :)

Yeh got it from PR admin PM did you do the server hot fix for the md5 check as it alters the hash. PB have updated the md5 check for BF2/PR to reflect the d3d file change.

Im sure you would of done it already.

Rumor has it that they used the d3d.dll from beta 2. was suposed to stop the pbss from being overlayed and improve PB secreen shot results % having to back track to before they added it to the beta test is a win for the hackers. Now when will they fix the d3d.dll to stop pbscreen shots being blocked.

I believe the official fix incorporatees all those features.

The first link I posted was the rendx9.dll from beta 2 but the new one is a fixed version of the same file from the final version.

It goes in C:\Program Files\EA GAMES\Battlefield 2

Rename the existing file - "RendDX9.dll" - to - "old.RendDX9.dll" - incase u need to revert.
