port foward shouldnt matter at ALL. It crashes before i even get to the main menu. I bought the deluxe editiion today im in my process of installing for the 3rd time. It works when i dont patch it to 1.22, but when i do that it wont even start. So im not gonnna even patch it and place some bf2 first. I downloaded 1.22-1.30 patch that wont work cus it comes up wiht an error saying 1.22 patch must be installed first.
