This is just some stuff I've noticed in Euro Forces, which I'm not sure if it is totally absent from the rest of Battlefield 2.

Benelli M4. When you fire it dispenses a blue shell, but when you reload, it is red. I'm not sure what the color of other shells is on other shotguns.

HK53A3. When you empty an entire clip, and reload, you can still see bullets in the clip you are removing from the gun.

HK21. I believe this is the only gun besides the M249 where you can see the ammo belt being fed. If you fire all your ammo, you will still see the ammo hanging, unlike the M249 where you can see the end of the ammo belt being feed until you run out of ammo.

After being successfully revived, you can hear "You're alright, back in there, sorry, heh." It sounds like whoever the voice actor was, screwed up on his line (You're alright, get back in there maybe), apologized, and laughed. Someone must have thought it sounded different and didn't mind it. It's not bad at all, it's kinda cool/funny, but it just makes you wonder.

The L2A6 tank icon. Compare it to the M1A2, T-90, and Type 98 tank icons. Sort of weird looking.

Challenger 2

Challenger 2 tank icon is almost identical to the Abrams. The Challenger 2 doesn't have slopped edges like that on the front.

The Challenger 2 is out of proportion. It is depicted as being larger than the Leopard 2A6EX, when in fact, it is smaller (it's wider with added armor). It would have been interesting if the Challenger fired more explosive rounds like HESH in game. *drools*

There is a desert camo Humvee on Taraba 16 player, rather than having a chocolate brown camo.

EU gets a PGZ-95 instead of a Linebacker on Great Wall 16 player.

Two helipads, with various sandbags, buildings, and fences surrounding them on Great Wall (made a post about this a long time ago, but deserves being mentioned).

If you look in the BFHQ and sift through the army images, the EU soldiers have much more detailed shadows. On a side note, the EU images just stand out more than the other BF2 armies.

If you look at the army section in BFHQ in Special Forces, you will see there is only room for 9 of the army flags, instead of 10 total, which leaves out the EU flag. *is sad*

Transport time does not record. Others and I have confirmed this. You can sit in one all round, and it won't add a second to your stats. Not sure if it affects anything else.

I'm not sure if this happens on other maps, but I've noticed that on the EU maps, you can fire your LMG until it overheats and have, say, 56 bullets left, and when it cools, it will show you have 63 or some other number. I'm not sure if there is some lag at the end of overheating, where you register of firing 37 bullets but the server registers only 33. Maybe those 4 bullets didn't actually register, or maybe they were added to your clip... heheheheh

So yea, nothing really special.

"

That's the lamest bug ever. Crashing is fine; the stats are all lost. But when you're primarily jogging around Taraba or Great Wall in a jeep you'd expect to get your time added -_- I'll never get the veteran transport medal.

The helipads... if you look in the game localization, one of the files has some CP names for Great Wall localized as "DELETED" meaning they're not there. But I'd guess that there were 64 man versions of GW and I think OSS or Taraba but they scrapped the idea.

That's interesting. Maybe I should also look into that. I wonder if any game files in Euro Forces that were not used. I know that BF2 has effects for rain, snow, and thunder/lightning (which they used on Operation Harvest).

I also forgot to add that the Euro Fighter's missiles are full auto. In the other jets, you have to keep clicking to fire one, but you can just hold down and fire away with the EU fighter.

Well enough said...EA NEED to give a patch out for EF....why ?
Because its not the most played booster....people think that its not a 100 % only a fast adding this and that and some maps....thats all.And read the topic from Hellogoodsir (My letter to EA/DICE) Thats a very good letter with all the best ideas for EF.

My official list what i would like to see in that PATCH what will tune up EF...for FREE for all EF owners !
This is just dreaming around but we could force EA to make it.

1.Adding EF Ribbon back !
2.New vehicles instead of USMC ones (Read Hellogoodsir's letter to EA/DICE)
3.New maps at least 2-3 (Infantry map for PLA and Jet fight map with 6 jets/team, something like wake)
4.Make the corrections with the EU guns (Read above ^^)
5.Change the EU medal to a gold shine...what we got now..its not gold and it looks crappy.
6.Adding some new medals/ribbons

WOW! 800 hours on EF?!?!?! Holy shit. And I thought I was the only one with Smoke as my most played map. God damn it! You ruined my day now!

But has to be said...would be a strange role model for a hero

Great Wall and the EU Medic...fucking quality!!! Red Berets ftw. Great "alternative" account...loving the WLR
Judging by the medic piccie, I assume the FAMAS is a Carbine then...
Get him with the FAMAS showing and that would be great

Sorry yUP, but I can't stand the team stacking, or even last a minute without being kicked for having ping around 150.

I can't find your stats Jacob. Is he a pistol totering EU medic even though you have rifles as most played?

A best round score of 93, good first try. You killed that captain once and he is now your victim and visa versa.

This just goes to show how sloppy of a job DICE did with Euro Forces.  They could have made this a really cool xpack instead of a booster, devoted more time to it, and it would have been awsome.

Might I add that the Euro tank view crosshairs or w/e are the same as the M1A2. The cannon/gun are also the same, and they both share the same engine sound as the Type 98. You can never cut too many corners.
