I do not have high hopes to be able to play BF 1942...


Vista 64 Intel Core2 Duo E840 @ 3.00GHz NVIDIA GeForce 9600 GT (With up to date drivers) LG Flatron w2242pm (22') 1680 - 1050 usual resolution.

Ok I tried what it is suggested on many forums - to change resolutions in video files in settings folder, to run the program in compatibility mode for windows xp...

So, I see the intro cinematics but when it arrives to the menu, I just hear the music. I see nothing... It must be related to the resolution, but I did anything I could find on different forums.... Any idea ?

Battlefield 2 does not support widescreen resolutions, including 1680x1050. During development, widescreen was still not quite as common as 4:3 ratio displays, and DICE believed that widescreen resolutions would give users of widescreen displays an unfair advantage due to the wider field of view, so they deliberately sabotaged the game's ability to use widescreen.

The best you can do is 1280x1024.

Thanks for the information but even if I change the resolution to 1280 - 1024, the screen remains black.... :(
