Part 1.

A few players have reached out to me that they would like to install Point of Existence (PoE) mod. We are planning a HelloClan BFV PoE Mod Fill The Server Event coming soon in the next few months.

If you do not have Battlefield Vietnam PoE Mod installed on your PC, here are easy instructions below on how to get it for FREE!
  1. Before you begin, make sure that you have installed the most current BFV NO CD PATCH from here.
  2. Click on this link and download the PoE client file. You can download it anywhere in you PC, preferably in Downloads folder.
  3. Open your Downloads folder or the folder where you downloaded the PoE client file

Does the mod affects the normal game in any way?

Or can I still start the game normally if I use the normal .exe file?

Mod does not affect the normal game in any way. Your BFV will run exactly as before. Mod will install a separate desktop icon to launch the mod.

You can start BFV normally even after you install the mod.

Let's see if they'll put it on me ... I'll tell you, it takes me less to go to the moon on foot, than putting this on.
I'll let you know

I downloaded and tried extracting again, same result. I also tried running the .exe file directly from the zip folder and got another error.

So I am able to download and install the P.O.E. mod BUT!!!! first The server you have pointed out in the instructions doesnt exist at the moment. 2nd, when I did click on one of the servers where I saw a couple familiar names I was told to "please insert either bfv disk". What is up with that? install went perfectly so not sure whats going on here.

Hello NME,

You are meant to run the mod from the PoE shortcut it creates...not via the normal BFV executable. And the only server working with PoE (I think) is ours from the event. :)

FYI, After going back to run regular BFV (post POE game mod), I'm getting "Insert CD" messages again too. I guess I will have to re-patch the NO-CD mod again.
Also, before this event I am no longer seeing the Hello All Maps in the BFV game browser any more. I had patched the browser a few months ago and was seeing it regularly, but now nothing. Not a big deal, I just go back to "add a server".

I think that the PoE shortcut overwrites the original BFV one. So even if you launch Bfvietnam.exe it opens using PoE. However I must ask to confirm, did you try launching from the original BFV shortcut / i.e. root of your game install?

And have you tried clicking "Update" in the multi-player tab? :)

My original BFV shortcut would only start POE now, so I went into the custom games and reactivated my BFV 1.21 so it would start normally. Now it does, but I need a CD to get into the game online. I'll reapply the NO-CD patch when I get time. Thanks!
