Hi, I just bought my new Battlefield game and have just installed it, but during the installing, the computer wanted to go back to version 1.1 but that didn't happen: Patching Failed. Then the computer continued with installing the game, after installing I double clicked the start icon, my monitor turned black and then this message came up: mods/bf2/shaders/lightning.fx not found!!!_DO_check your working directory, _AND_sync your shaders folder before calling upon your local renderning programmer/GP.(really!) I checked the maps, restarted the computer but still having the problem, I'm now downloading the newest patch but I think this isn't a problem that need to be fixed by a patch. Can someone help me with this problem? So shame: just bought the game and now already having a problem! Thanks, Gamedrag
After installing an expansion pack (such as Special Forces, Euro Force or Armoured Fury), reinstall the latest patch. Download the 1.4 FULL patch (not the beta or the incremental) and install it.
You need to patch your computer to 1.1, then install. Then download the latest (or download them at the same time), that being v1.4 and install it. You need the full patch for both of those. That will fix all the problems. I believe that is your fix to the problem.
Thanks for the help, the game is working now!!! :cool: Many thanks! :bows: René :beer:
