    I yust installt it to with some problems could you explane yours a littel more

    If I'm correct you can connect to the server but don't get any ranks / awards

    my solution was to use the .vbs from this thread
    edit the vbs like this
    18 : strHostsFile = objShell.ExpandEnvironmentStrings("%SystemRoot%") & \system32\drivers\etc\hosts.ics"
    27 : strLookupAddr = "" //on server this shoud be
    123 : objShell.Run "BF2.EXE" & strArgs, 0, True //on server use insted BF2_W32ded.exe

    to let statistics apear the script must only run on the server
    the clients only need the script to unlock and see the bfhq waht isn't possible with offline accounts in any case

    Nx3 - Another option is to use the HOSTS.ics file instead, and then you don't have to do any weird VBS stuff. Just search the forums, and you'll see what I'm talking about
