hi when i start up bf2 for the first time i get the black screen and it sends me back to desktop and my dad says there is a patch do you know where i could find it:cya:
I think your problem could be alittle more than just the patch. Reasoning behind my madness is......... Without the patch the game should startup it's just you can't play multiplayer.
We will need more info on what your comp. specs are...and what drivers.
I mean it could be a whole host of problems and reasons for the dump to desktop or it could be a simple tweak. NEED INPUT
2ghz 128mb geforce 4 40 ghz hard drive 512 mb ram thats from my dad:confused: lol
sorry bro. looks like you need to upgrade your graphics card!! on the box (of any game) there is a sticker or an area with the specs minimum/and recomended. You need to at least have the minimum. witch i belive is a nvidia 5700.
yeah looks like you need a new video card 5700 isnt the lowest my friend has a 5200 and it runs ok
Yes ... some 5200 can run it. But it is not officially supported.
The FX5200 is the same core as the FX5700, it will still run the game, but at a performance level the Developers considered unnaceptable. The GF4, however, is not supported due to shader issues, I suggest investing in at least a X700 or Geforce 6600 for decent performance. There's no point in upgrading to bare min spec card after all.
yes that is true. No sense indeed.
