Hey, i don't know if everyone know how to use the battlerecorder. its a very good tool, specially for admins finding proof of hackers, rule breakers etc.

Part one - Downloading the recorder file
There is two ways to download the file you need.
First way:
A: You can get it through the game by going to the "COMMUNITY" 1 tab in game.
B: Find the latest recording file scroll all the way down 2 and choose the file.
PS: the recorder files are stored for a limited time! so don't except that you can download a demo file from 2-3 days back.
C: Press "DOWNLOAD" 3
D: You have to wait a little bit for the file to download.
E: Choose the file you just downloaded its named "demo<number>.bf2demo" 4
F: Press "PLAY FILE" 5
G: Wait until the file have been loaded and press "JOIN GAME" 6

Second way:
A: You have to go to the page where the server's battle-recorder files are saved
=WiW='s files can be found here:http://bf.killercreation.co.uk/demos/bf2/
B: Download and save the file.
C: The recorder files need to be placed in this folder:
Vista & 7: C:\Users\<USERNAME>\Documents\Battlefield 2\Profiles\Default\demos
XP: C:\Documents and Settings\<USERNAME>\My Documents\Battlefield 2\Profiles\Default\demos
The meaning of the demo file name is: auto_<year>_<month>_<day>_<hour>_<minute>_<second>.bf2demo
D: Follow steps E, F and G from the first way.
