Increasing Ticket Counts will make the game last longer.  Here is how to do it:

  • Go into your my documents/Battlefield 2/Profiles/default folder
  • Open your ServerSettings .CON file with Notepad.
  • Scroll down till you find sv.ticketRatio 200
  • Edit the number (in BOLD) to however high you want the tickets to be, the higher the count the longer the game will last.

  • Save the changes.

  • Then right click on the ServerSettings .CON file and click on "properties". On the bottom you will have the option to make the file *Read Only*. Click the Read only option and save.

Additional info: In some maps the tickets are edited differently than the standard ticket counts. If you want to edit a specific map's ticket count, here's how:

browse to your mod/level folder as an example: C:\Program Files\EA GAMES\Battlefield 2\mods\bf2\Levels

And open up the init.con file located in the level\ archive of the map file. Change the values in these lines to suit your needs:

gameLogic.setDefaultNumberOfTicketsEx 16 1 225
gameLogic.setDefaultNumberOfTicketsEx 16 2 225
gameLogic.setDefaultNumberOfTicketsEx 32 1 225
gameLogic.setDefaultNumberOfTicketsEx 32 2 225
gameLogic.setDefaultNumberOfTicketsEx 64 1 225
gameLogic.setDefaultNumberOfTicketsEx 64 2 225
gameLogic.setDefaultNumberOfTicketsEx 128 1 225
gameLogic.setDefaultNumberOfTicketsEx 128 2 225



To increase all maps in one go, look in the gamelogicinit.con file in the mod directory. In here are the lines ->

gameLogic.setDefaultNumberOfTickets 1 100
gameLogic.setDefaultNumberOfTickets 2 100

Increase those numbers to increase all maps
tickets at once.
