EA Link is the new EA Downloader

Discussions about stuff that isn't Hardware. Keep it legal, or at least vague enough to cover my ass if the lawyers gets on my case.

EA Link is the new EA Downloader

But does it actually work for anyone? Mine was stuffed the last two nights, but it might be my (currently) ill-configured firewall.
Bueller?

I did the upgrade last night, but I also have to say that I haven't had any problems at all with either EA Downloader or the EA Link. Firewalls shouldn't be a problem unless you are restricting outgoing traffic. Your machine is the one establishing all the connections, so if you are allowing all out, then it shouldn't matter what your incoming rules are.

I upgraded last night (it forced me to). I had no problems upgrading or logging in at first, but it kept loosing the connection to the master server. There wasn't a direct impact on BF2142 (strangely), but it kept stealing the focus away from BF2142 when I was playing.

(Good to see the EA programers pay attention to MS interface rules, or any rules of good programming ettiquette anyway. Not that MS sets a good example.)

They've enforced a change in BF2142 somehow as well. Last night, the game server lost the connection to the rank server, but I didn't lose my unlocks. This is different to the behaviour from a few nights earlier.
(Although it has to connect initially to get the unlocks. Jeff didn't get the unlocks - he joined later after the ranking link had gone down.)

I thought I had an appetite for destruction, but all I wanted was a club sandwich.

I had all sorts of issues with unlocks not showing, but they did in the next round, however it still thought my score was zero again, then I got another promotion and offered an unlock but it didn't show the one I already had!!!

I assume there will be an unlock waiting for me when I next connect.
