Did you take advantage of the super Steam holiday sales? I did, and got the complete Battlefield 2 pack for $4.99. However, if you installed it and got it all working – you might keep getting kicked out of network games because PunkBuster reports that you have an ‘Invalid driver version/game’. This is because of the Steam Community overlays.
- At your game library list in Steam, just right-click the Battlefield 2 icon
- Select Properties
- Go to the General tab
- UN-select the ‘Enable Steam Community In-Game’ option.
Yes, annoying. Can’t believe old games like this haven’t been re-modified by steam to not need the now-ancient PunkBuster system. The fact they’ve had to update PunkBuster to be separate Windows Services now in order to work shows you it’s time to see that stuff go.
