1. most of the time your localization folder will be found at C:/Program Files/EAGAMES/Battlefield2/mods/bf2/localization/english

If you are up to the date with the latest patch you should see 5 icons in there. If this is your first time doing this they will most likely look as if they aren't formatted. To open one of them, double click the one labeled "English" and it should bring up a window asking you what program you want to use to open it with. Select notepad from the list and you will notice that the file extension is now UTXT. Now everytime you go to open a UTXT file, it should open in notepad

*note* if there not in C:/Program Files/EAGAMES/Battlefield2/mods/bf2/localization/english file then i have no clue were to look

now onto the 2nd step!

as soon as you open the file save this file somewhere else. this is very important when you start changing the codes. ALWAYS MAKE A BACK UP FILE!!!. JUST IN CASE YOU MESS UP!.

now onto the 3rd step!

NOW LETS START!!
This is the easy part, you need some common sense to do this,for example on the left you will see something like "KILLMESSAGE_WEAPON_m16a2". at first KILLMESSAGE means that is the message shown when you kill someone with that weapon. And the m16a2 is the weapon that is used. Next to the KILLMESSAGE_WEAPON_m16a2. you will see 2 boxes then next to those 3 boxes are the words M16A2 then 2 more boxes next to it if you want to change something in there you have to put it between the sets of boxes.

heres a picture of what it will look like https://i7.tinypic.com/2rxejjd.jpg
you can put anything you want in those set of boxes. but i personally like put the kit names and actual names of the vehicles this link gave me alot of info on the names of the weapons and so on (http://wiki.bf2s.com/)


now onto the 4th step! getting everything orange

Find what you want to modify, Ive chosen to change my You killed message to show the player's name that i killed in orange. So what i will do is where it says §0# is will change that to §C1001# and where it says #§1  i will change it to #§C1001. So you should go from this §0#PLAYERNAME#§1 to this §C1001#PLAYERNAME#§C1001 which should get you the player name in orange which i had for a little bit but i found how to make it into bigger letters

for the bigger letters like me locate the HUD_CHAT_YOUGOTAKILLSCORE  change the original message with
§3You §C1001killed§C1001 §3#PLAYERNAME#§3 (§C1001+2§C1001)

the (§3) gives you the big letter format 

https://img404.imageshack.us/img404/9756/screen381eh9.jpg

to get this you have to do this: Locate this line: HUD_HUD_KILLEDBY_KILLS        §0#PLAYERNAME1# [§0#WEAPON#§1] #PLAYERNAME2# and replace the "§0#PLAYERNAME1# [§0#WEAPON#§1] #PLAYERNAME2#" with  §0#PLAYERNAME1# [§C1001#WEAPON#§C1001] #PLAYERNAME2# and you should get the orange letters


well that shall be it guys just play around with that stuff if you have trouble pm me if you have any other ideas post them so other can learn how to do more then just the stuff i taught them. pleas dont criticize the spelling and stuff i was in hurry to do this.  all the edits i have done are at the beginning of the forum 


EU & AF codes are in english_mappacks.utxt
Vanilla codes are in English.utxt
SF codes are in XPEnglish.utxt
Assets are in English_Patch.utxt

no offence intended and +1 for the effort but this is exactly why I made and released my text cut no BS localisation.

I mean honestly I can just about see a clear area of screen in the middle, and maybe a bit on the right but otherwise? oh man- but its your game, if you like all the clutter and mess you go for it, looking at all the other localisations it seems your not alone so im sure it will be popular.
