Re: Trying to get BFBC2 patch to install

If you purchased the game through Origin it should already be up to date. Origin installs updates as they come through the pipe.

Are you sure your version isn't the latest already?

I'm sure it's a new install which is why I'm not sure why it has an old update.. each time I try and run it this pops up.

Did you already try using the update you downloaded from the torrent? It might have messed with your installation files and now BFBC2 stops trying to update if it sees modified files. This is just a theory of course.

Have you tried the usual: restarting your PC and trying again and/or re-login into Origin by logging out and then manually putting your login/password back in.

This is what the torrent file contained from gamefront.. just clicking on the updater program just brings me right back to the message saying my version is out of date.

I rebooted and restarted origin but still has no effect on anything.

How long has it been since you downloaded it from Origin? I agree, this is very odd. I might have to suggest what most people dread to hear: you might have to redownload the game, install, and try again. Origin should install any updates that you'll need for their games. So, don't use any 'outside' update packages from torrent sites.

I downloaded it last Saturday... the thing about the origin patcher is it has no resume function and it's slow.

it plays fine without the patch.

Does it play ok both single AND multiplayer? If you can still play online with other people, then you should be fine then.

Single is fine online I haven't bothered to try because you wont find many servers that have the old version.

Right. Well, if it does what you want it to then I wouldn't bother messing with all this. If it bothers you and/or is restricting you from playing online, then you will most likely have to just uninstall it, redownload and install it all over again. I've had to do this a few times for some games I've downloaded on Origin. For some reason, they were corrupted and I had to redo the whole process again. After that, I've had no problems. I'm thinking that's what's gonna have to happen here.
