I now have loads of mods on my PC that I play in conjunction with Battlefield 2, but the Allied Intent Xtended (AIX) mod was the first one that I ever played for the game. The way it upgraded the default experience with better weapons, equipment, vehicles, and AI really grabbed my attention. Once I played this mod a few years ago, I was hooked on Battlefield 2 and I’ve been making it my mission to explore as many mods for the game as I can ever since. Big-time shout-out to “kysterama” for putting this together as the AIX mod is truly a game-changer. If you like Battlefield 2, then this mod is a must to download and play.
The Server Files are only necessary if you wish to host your own server online. You do not need the Server Files to play single-player or multiplayer online. Also, make sure your copy of Battlefield 2 is up-to-date with version 1.5 when playing with mods as it solves a lot of potential issues preventively.
If you’re looking for an online community to join where you can play the AIX mod with other players, check out Night Watch Militia. You can also download the mod there along with other mini-mods and more maps that you can add to AIX.
For some extra assistance in installing Battlefield 2 mods, below is a video tutorial I put together last year. The majority of Battlefield 2 mods are very simple and easy to set up as long as you know the file structure. Executable downloads (.exe) tend to do the work for you as long as you point it to the main Battlefield 2 folder on your hard drive.
I recently found myself thinking back to the fun I had with Battlefield 2 AIX2. At the time (2009), I started playing on the STEAM digital game platform. I bought Battlefield 2 off STEAM but unfortunately, I could not get AIX2 to work properly and discovered other games to play and my BF2 days came to an end.
So I find myself wanting to play BF2 AIX in 2022. But before I go crazy trying to install AIX 2.0, I thought I’d ask… does the current AIX 2.0 off your website work with a digital STEAM BF2?
I decided to go with the “bf2 complete collection” from the NWM website (along with their AIX 2.0 downloads… hope they work out for me.
You actually beat me to it. I was just putting together a reply that was going to point you to the Night Watch Militia website right now. It should work for you as that is the version I use since my current computer didn’t have a CD/DVD drive.
I know it’s a long shot (been 10 years since AIX prime time) but do you know of a
legit hosted 24/7 BF2 AIX2 server that I can rent for myself and my game friends?
