ok bud, try delete these intro bik movies in your Battlefield 2142\mods\bf2142\Movies directory. you may delete all of them except titan_tutorial.bik (you're gonna need that one). maybe just some of them were installed wrong and now it cannot load them.

if still not working, get the newest drivers for your graphic card, maybe it has problem to draw the menu. i experienced this on one older computer.

if it's a problem with the intro movies... try downloading the newest version of Bink player. there are several places to get it if you look on google. also try downloading the 1.10 patch from EA link or filefront and install it, which may fix the problem.

but he doesn't have a problem with the EA video, which is bik as well, it's only the game intro not running. so downloading of bink drivers won't help him in any way.

yea well it doesn't matter which exact video is not running, all of them are the same filetypes. so if you can run at least one of them, then you don't need that bink player...

try something what has been writen here and good luck.

No, LOL, just no.

You can delete ALL of them without a worry.

I got the same problem as he does.

He does not mean movies, he is talking about the PICTURE, the one you get as you start up the game with the mech in the backround, it just goes to desktop

Deleting the movies does nothing.

I patched, still same thing. No game
