i doubt it, i got it from EA, so it shouldnt be. and also since so many people are trying to get the demo the download goes at like 11kbs a second, and for a 530meg file that takes a while!, o well i guess i might give it a shot...

Hmm, stange.. it might have been corrupted yes.

I'm waiting on getting my BF2 until the final release because by then my new computer will be out. Right now it won't run.. (check the minimum requirements of the Demo!)

They reccomend a video card with "at least" 256MB RAM.
They reccomend a system with at least 512MB.
Plus, they only support a few video cards..

I'm so glad I was planning on building a new system for gaming a while ago, or I'd have to start today for sure.. hehe.

Yeah. Some places you download (mirrors) can have corruptions, maybe if your internet connection spikes at one point, or the severs do something weird.

its always best when you choose a mirror, that its the closest one too you, and if it says, the most available one

Check my specs in my sig, my computer can definatley run it, and on the website it says they recomend a 128mb gfx card no a 256. my comp could and will run this game just fine. it is probably the installer, that stinks though that i have to redownload it at such a crappy speed.

hehe a 6600GT is def good enough to run that game in high settings, just because they don't list it dosn't mean it can. I mean the FX 5700 series listed at the bottom is worse than the 6600GT.

Also, he says clicking on the installer crashes it, so hasn't had chance to install it to try the game out.

I'd advise downloading from another mirror like i suggested, a closer and more reliable one. Maybe one linked to there site or something

and besides, my secondary comp has a 9600pro 256mb, and the installer does the same thing, so im thinking it's a bad installer.
