Hello friends! I wanted to make a special post to celebrate 10 years of bf2statistics! I never would have guessed when I first signed up to this site in 2007 that I would be here, still after 9 years using this system and actively working on this system (as the main dev at that!) . I would like to personally thank MrNiceGuy for keeping this project online, even after many other battlefield 2 sites continue to disappear from the web day after day. I personally have gotten so much joy out of using this system, that I will never forget it nor the great times I had while using it. I can also gives thanks to this project, as it sparked my desire to begin programming, which has led my to where I am today, about to graduate college and begin a career in this sort of field!

In light of 10 years, I want to do something special as a token of my appreciation to bf2statistics. I decided that for the next couple of months, I...

Hello friends, and happy holidays! I wanted to just drop by and show you guys what I have in store for the next release :) . With Gamespy offline for over 18 months now, we are left with us here at BF2Statistics, Battlelog, BF2Hub, and finally Project Reality (whom don't offer stats). With a few people running their own stats backed system, it can get a little difficult and crazy to keep track of all the redirects and such... Well I have a solution with my next release. Let me introduce, the BF2 Gamespy Redirector :) Keep in mind this is Alpha, and the a few weeks away from Beta testing.


So what exactly makes this program so special? Well the whole idea behind this application is to replace the Client launcher with something even more useful. For those of you who are running your own stats system, the Control Center is perfect... but what about...

Hey there everyone, Today I wanted to show off what I have been working on for the last few weeks. It's no secret that we must use some sort of redirection method to force Battlefield 2 to use a different address to fetch Gamespy related services. Things such as stats, online server browser, and even the login servers must be redirected so we can continue to play this great game with stats enabled.

It has always been a standard here at Bf2Statistics to modify the System HOSTS file, which makes sense provided what it does, but of course EA had to throw a wrench in everything, and introduce a HOSTS file check in patch 1.3, that renders HOSTS file redirects useless.... unless of course, we deny READ permissions from the hosts file ;) . unfortunately, since read permissions are denied, this causes some issues with the windows DNS services, and sometimes the redirects end up only working for a few hours if at all. I have worked very hard to come up with different ideas that we can use...
