Battlefield 2 (BF2) is a first person military action game. The dedicated server component can be run as a Windows Service using FireDaemon. FireDaemon will allow you to have the dedicated server start automatically at boot prior to login, allow you to start multiple instances of the dedicated server and so forth. This HOWTO will show you how set it up. You can also use Trinity or PanelDaemon to manage FireDaemon and other Windows services via a web browser.

Also check out the Battlefield 2 Command and Control Daemon HOWTO. BF2 CCD allows much better control of BF2 DS including RCON access to the server.

BF2 Dedicated Server Setup Under FireDaemon

1. Download and install BF2 DS (if you use the retail CD set it should have already been installed). It can be downloaded from EA Games. v1.4 was the latest at the time of writing! The download is large (> 300MB).

2. Install BF2 DS into the directory of your choice (typically C:\Program Files\EA Games\Battlefield 2 Server). Make sure you install PunkBuster if it is a public server.

3. Install FireDaemon Pro into the directory of your choice (typically C:\Program Files\FireDaemon). FireDaemon can be downloaded from here.

4. BF2 DS requires two configuration ("con") files. One configuration file contains the map list and the other the server settings. The simplest way to create a "con" file is to start the BF2ServerLauncher (look for "Run dedicated server" icon in the the Start menu heirarchy: Start -> All Programs -> EA Games -> Battlefield 2 Server -> Run dedicated server).
