Recommended Posts

I made an application to help inputing your cd key and encrypting it. This also works for BF2 and BF2SF

 

Read the readme.txt file

Get CDKey from EA Link:

1. Click "Get into EA nation" then click login, enter your ealink login details.

2. The "Get into EA nation" should now show your username.

3. Click your username and select "My Account" under Nation tools.

4. Re-enter your password.

Question

I have installed EA Link and receive an error message about a duplicate GUID or an invalid CDKey. How do I resolve this?

 

 

Answer

If you encounterd one of the above error messages when trying to join an online server game after upgrading to EA Link, please try the following steps to resolve your issue.

 

Note: These files will only work with the english-US version of the game on the Windows operating system. Your game must be installed in the default location. If you have installed Battlefield 2142 to a custom directory please use the manual instructions below.

 

At the bottom of this answer in the File Attachments section you will find 3 files. (bf2142.bat )

Click on each file to save to the desktop.

Once both files have been downloaded double click on the bf2142.bat file.

Try the game again.

 

 

 

I have made 3 bat files for fixing games

 

Download one of these files.

 

If you have your game installed on your C: drive

Fix_bf2142C

 

If you have your game installed on your E: drive

Fix_bf2142E

 

If you have your game installed on your F: drive

Fix_bf2142F

Hey there, new the forums and looking for answers...

 

I've tried both the manual and program assisted fix for the blank PB kick. After running the program I checked the registry key and it did have the x9392 like it's supposed to. My PB is up to date and both A and B services are running. I even disabled my firewall to make sure that it wasn't getting blocked. However, I still get kicked about 5-10 secs after entering any server that has PB enabled.

 

Any idea's on why I could still be getting kicked? Also, I have never been banned from any server on any game so I know it's not that.

Also to fix the communication errors with punkbsterA and B. You need to make sure that the services are running properly. Go into your services section and make sure that punkbusterA and B are both set to run automaticly and aren't on Manual. This has helped a lot of my clan members who have that issue. If you need more specific instructions I can provide them.

I finally get it fixed. What I did was uninstall the game, make a search with windows search tool on any file with Battlefield in it, I deleted it and then tried reinstalling the game. For some reason after the 3rd try it worked. I guess that some file that didnt got deleted with the uninstall process was creating a conflict with a new installation.

EA Link was discontinued and turned into EA Downloader, which was later also discontinued I believe.

 

You are still able to download and access your games by downloading EA-Downloader, though.
