I'm not the first to port BFH maps into BF2. but perhaps the first to port them all and add singleplayer to most of them. biggrin

This mod so far features all the maps and singleplayer working on a few of them. (Singleplayer available on Victory Village, Midnight Mayhem, Buccaneer Bay (and night), Riverside Rush, and Coastal Clash (and night)

Videos:





Download Link:

bfheroesBF2.rar

Things like soldiers, vehicles, and handweapons aren't ported yet. Unless someone pitches in help on this mod, those things may take a long time before I can get them in. BF2 modding isn't as simple as BF1942 was. sad

The vehicles will basically have to be rebuilt in-order to work in BF2.

I'll update the link whenever I upload a new version.

Hm, I tried to run Singleplayer Riverside Rush, but crashed at Textures.
Any ideas?
I went back and added the mod folder to my clean installation backup (the main one is a bit messed up with all the editor and heroes modding and crashes instantly), so I was thinking I might need to patch? :O

EDIT: Nvm, it works after patching.

Wingclipped Michinimo! biggrin

Flippin awesome! biggrin
I'm off to try VV Night biggrin

lol yes the most recent update to the build was the fix to the planes. Right now I'm in the process of fixing the tank's collision meshes. After words you will no longer take excessive damage from driving them around. (Is the result of a poorly designed col1 mesh. Fail courtesy of EA/DICE)

Moved my post above to the BFH'42 section. Seems I have accidentally posted it in the wrong place. :P Nonetheless I did update the BF2 mod a couple days ago. (it will always use the same link, so just redownload from same link to get newest version).

Update:

Finally figured out how to lightmap BF2 maps in 3DSMax. So I used the lightsources from my night conversion of Riverside Rush in the BF1942 version of the mod in the BF2 version. Main difference is that it looks better. BF2 allows for more control over the color of the lightmaps.

In particular, the light sources are on a separate color channel while sky and sun light sources are separate. This allows me to control the color of the light sources without altering the color of other things like the ambient color and such. Overall result is better looking. biggrin

Only downside is that it takes 3 or more times longer then what it took to render the lightmaps for BF1942. Because BF2's retarded lod system requires separate lightmaps for every lod of a static. Not only does this take up more memory, it slows the rendering process down since each lod has to be lightmapped separately thus increasing the rendering time. Most statics in BFH have at least 3 or more lods to them. sad

BF1942 however tends to use the same lightmap on all lods in a mesh. Except when the object uses a special lod system that doesn't exist in BF2 anymore. When it uses a special lod object with a lod selector, it can replace an entire mesh with a different mesh when a certain distance is reached. Most commonly used in vehicles to present a lower detailed mesh at a distance. BF1942's mesh files are very different then BF2. They store the collision mesh in the same file as the visible mesh and all child objects on a PCO or bundle must have their own mesh file. They are not all stored in single mesh files like in BF2. wink

BF42 meshes can have multiple lod meshes in the same mesh file like BF2, however they all usually share the same lightmap channel uvmap. Thus requiring only one lightmap per static. You would think EA would have been smart enough to code BF2 to just use the main lod's lightmap on all the other lods for a static, but they just had to make it harder on us 3DS Max folks. :P

You haven't installed the mod or BF2 correctly. It means the shaders_client.zip file for your BF2 game is missing or something went wrong when you installed the mod.

Do not know if you already corrected, I tested and now no error with correction and two riders allowed. Later, Rob

Thanks for pointing this out. I had consolidated some redundent AI code and must have forgot to update that line. The correction will be included in the next build. biggrin

Working on porting over the Easter Egg widgets. Here's how it looks so far:





Still needs some work done. Namely, HUD icons, damage reduction/removal, and the collision material fixed. :P

The bfheroes folder goes to the mods folder of your BF2 game. wink

Also I have updated the mod build and it should now include the Easter Eggs from BFheroes and a few other tweaks. No Wicked Wake yet as I have yet to port that map to BF2. I might not be able to find the time to do that now due to my job and other things going on in my life now. sad
