More than four years since the game first hit the shelves, and a good six months since they started beta testing it, the v1.5 update for Battlefield 2 has now officially launched.
As part of Update 1.50 we are glad to announce that not only is Highway Tampa now a required install included in the update but Euro Forces (Great Wall, Taraba Quarry and Operation Smoke Screen) and Armored Fury (Midnight Sun, Operation Harvest and Operation Road Rage) is now FREE for all Battlefield 2 players. Including the brand new map, Operation Blue Pearl this brings EIGHT new maps that everyone can play and will be added to ranked Battlefield 2 servers world wide. The Booster Pack content is included in the update and has made the file just over 2Gb in size.
You can nab it right here from AusGamers files.

Despite its size, this is still an incremental patch and does require that you're already patched to v1.4.

Damnit, i want to play this but i loaned my disc to someone and never got it back :(. I guess it would only be like $10 in the shops now though.

I think it's pretty cool that they still patch this game, even though it's taken a long time for this patch to come out. Usually devs stop giving a s*** after a year or two.

Been playing today and I had forgotten how much fun can be had and on the flipside, how much I hate retards on pubs.
Nice to play in proper widescreen. Heard a lot of people b****ing about the choppers and how they fly. My only complaint is how much I hate being pwned by the TV cam chopper.

Have had a couple of crashes to desktop however can't rule out that I haven't restarted system since reinstalling.

I can't wait until I get off from work. I've been waiting for the patch for a few days now. I started it at 5AM this morning USA Central time. I get home from work at 6:30 PM...then I need to install BF2. Hopefully it was worth the wait.

Update after I install.

Install BF2
Patch to 1.41
Then apply this latest patch

Despite its size, this is still an incremental patch and does require that you're already patched to v1.4.

Dan did mention this in the opening patch that is if that's what's giving you grief.

Otherwise, try deleting all temp folder content and try again.
