anyway here goes works 4 me n few others Many users of the popular server-browsing application, The All-Seeing Eye, were annoyed with the 1.03 update's inclusion of a "Message from EA" box, as it prevented them from joining servers directly from the ASE software. However, BFNation Forums user Spy98 has posted a solution: "When you're in ASE, right click "Battlefield2" from your game list and click "Configure games...". Again select "Battlefield2" from the tree-selection. In the textbox below "Program location" you should have something like: "D:\Battlefield 2\BF2.exe" (with quotes) change it to: "D:\Battlefield 2\BF2.exe" +playerName XYNAME +playerPassword YZPASS with the quotes intact, and XYNAME being the username which is used to sign in to your Battlefield 2 / EA account and YZPASS (obviously) the password. Note the upper/lower-case characters." Now you can use All-Seeing Eye instead of the unreliable in-game browser. Enjoy sorry if post is already here but looked and carnt c it?
