Hello Everyone,

PreComment:
Several Friends and i love the BfME Series, we own the original Games, but getting them running on modern Systems (Windows 10, MacOS, Linux) is a pain in the ass.
In order to make it easy for me and my buddies to just „Jump into“ playing some rounds together, i have starked working on an AiO Installer Package.

Idea:
The Idea of this Project is to build an Installer which is setting up everything needed to play BfME, BfME2 and BfME2-RotWK just by providing the keys you would normally also provide when installing them normally.

Content:
The Installer will install the following things

- BfME (choice)
— Game
— 1.06 Patch
— HD Mod
— Widescreen Fix
— NoCD Fix
- BfME 2 (choice)
— Game
— 1.06 Patch
— HD Mod
— Widescreen Fix
— NoCD Fix
- BfME 2 - RotWK (choice)
— Game
— 2.02 Patch V8.4.0
— Widescreen Fix
— NoCD Fix
- T3A: Online (choice)

Status:
Version 1.0 for the Project is currently done by 100% and available in the german language (if you want another language you have to fix this yourself after) 
The first Installer worked pretty fine, it installs all files to the correct location and also sets the correct registry entries, with the correct „installation path“ and the keys inserted in the installation dialog.

What works:
- BfME
- BfME Hd Mod
- BfME Online over T3A
- BfME2 RotWK
- BfME2 RotWK over T3A

 

What's not working:
- BfME2 

- BfME2 Hd Mod
- BfME2 Online over T3A

Alpha Test AiO installer Link:
https://mega.nz/fold...TOOxZLWkp66_xvg

 

How to Use:

1. Download all the files from the mega.nz folder above.

2. run Setup.exe with Administrative rights (in order to fix the key permissions for BfME1)

3. [only if you have a resolution other than 3840 x 2160] go to the %appdata% folders and alter the resolution of the options.ini files to your current resolution (in V1.1 this will be done by script i wrote right now)

4. Play the game you want :)

 

Note:

in order to play BfME2 you need to provide your own game2.dat file and change the gamekey in the registry. i am working on a blowfish generator to crack the logic and generate the game2.dat via the Installer, but this will take some time.

 

Future Plans:

- installing the HD mods will become a choice (DONE, will be released with v1.2)

- Add Edain Mods as a choice (0%)
- Add AotR Mod as a choice (0%)
- Implement PatchSwitcher (0%)

- implement language patches and modify language in registry (currently the AiO is German only) (100% for BfME2, will be released with v1.2)

Greetings
Gardosen

Small Update: Installer is nearly done, first tests on my spare machines to test if the AiO works as expected before releasing it :)

Update:
 

The next version will fix the issues with BfME2, i was able to patch the exe file to a portable version which is ignoring the key importancy and will not end in a 3:30 anti piracy defeat.
