    Apparently, the game became free on Origin so I'm thinking we could have some games in it sometimes if you guys are up for it.

    I would endure using Origins (or as I like to call it F****** C*** S*** F***) for this.

    Everyone could play a version of Empires with aircraft in it.

    A while back I tried that with my old copy of BF 1942 and Empires did have a fugly huge menu that would't ever close unless I turned the whole GUI off.

    I always knew that the source Empires had the low res models because the modeller with the high res one disappeared before they put them in, but I never knew they carried over from the BF empires. Gawd are they ugly.

    I got it. Finally my fibre optic decided to kick in and a swift download in just 2 minutes.

    Would like to play some games in the near future.

    Not sure if this works. Wish they released the expansion packs too. Jetpack was so much fun. :(

    Assuming that the Origin version still works just like the old Battlefield:
    Navigate to your profile-folder and edit video.con and videoCustom.con.
    GFX may still look bad when you are using anything other than a good old CRT monitor :)

    Fooshi, it's your responsibility to remind me to download this tonight.

    As for server, I don't think we'd have enough players to have a game.
