Go to your C:\Program Files\EA GAMES\Battlefield 2\mods\bf2 folder and right click on Common_client.zip
Copy and paste it to a safe place separate from your BF2 folder as a BACKUP for fixes
Go back to original Common_Client.zip in your BF2 folder.
Left click and enter the folder, go to Common_Client.zip/Textures/Sunflare
Drag the contents of BF3 sunflare fix/flare to Common_Client.zip Flare folder and contents of Textures/Sunflare to Common_Client/zip Sunflare folder. They should ask to overwrite files if done correctly. Say yes to the overwrite when prompted.
In some maps the sunflare does not work correctly but is blocky. In other maps the sunflare is weaker. This is probably due to per-map-specific light settings.
To fix the blocky sunflare mount the original sunflare into the map's files where the sunflare does not work or uninstall the sunflare... or don't stare into the sun.
Replace the modded Common_Client.zip with the original that you backed up in step 1 of the install.
