Well, it might be my sound card but i dont know yet. I can play BF 2 fine, it's just that at the initial load up, it lags and freezes up and continues doing this for about 2 minutes while i run around. After that it cools down and it runs good, but stutters, as if something is trying to keep up with the card, it does this with CoD 2 sometimes too. It's the type of stutter thats quick, doesn't effect my aim most of the time, but is really annoying. Also, i am getting really bad FPS, 20-40, whereas others with cards such as GeForce 6200's and ATI Radeon 9600's are getting better fps and performance. If this helps, i have turned my graphics to low and turned shaders and lighting effects off, turned resolution down to 800*600 @ 75 hz and it still locks up at the beginning and stutters throughout the game.

Current Computer Setup:

AMD Athlon XP 3000+ 2.16 GHz (Not a recent driver update on Mobo)

GeForce 6600 256 Mb DDR (81.95 Drivers, not overclocked)

Sound Blaster Audigy 2 ZS (Updated Drivers last night, got worse performance after I did)

1 Gig of DDR Ram

Windows XP (Service Pack 2)

Any help is greatly appreciated.

You need to tell us how you have set up Battlefield We need your resolution and refresh rate (mine is 1600x1200 @85Hz) The rest of my settings i have on high with one exepction. The texture setting. I have that set on Medium because that uses too much memory and contributes too stuttering. I would imagine you may have a similar problem.

It might be just your refresh rate is to high.

I was having same issues. I lowered refresh to 60hrz. And Whalla, runz smooth.

Moniter I'm using is a NEC 1765 model.

Casue your PC setup is close to mine in CPU and GPU, and I have the same sound card.

I run BF2 on all high except textures are on medium, Dynamic lighting and shadows are both, turned off. And AA is running at 2x. I'm boasting about 50-60fps. Drops to about 20 in the middle of a arty strike.

Oh I run stock drivers on my sound card. Never had a problem.

Texture setting is the only one that is high, the rest are medium, AA is off.

lets try this again .... what do you have running in your system tray? because if it is starting off laggy, and them smoothing out, it could be you have too much running.

The Texture setting needs to be turned to medium NOW!!!!!!!!!! Turn the dynamic lighting to medium too. The rest of the settings at that resolution can be set on high. Your AA you can try later but that could be turned on to x2 or x4. I use my nvidia overide to X16 which is nice :)

ok ... Press ctrl-alt-delete to bring up task manager. Take a picture of your running process there and post that here. Then we can get into msconfig ;).
