So I downloaded the full 1.41 patch and installed it and everything and tried running BF2 it but the screen just flashed a black screen like 3 times and then quites...anyone else have this problem or anyone with a fix?
whats your PC specs and did you try reinstalling it?
You aren't the only one with this issue. I play..'er played BF2 with patch 1.4 on both my laptop and desktop. As soon as I installed the patch, both machines could no longer load and run BF2. Have tried reinstalling the game, updated sound and vid drivers..and windows istelf. What's next..reload XP? Spyderlicker
Same thing has happened to me, but I think I can narrow down why. My 1.41 was working just fine for several days until I installed a new printer. It's an HP 6210 with the HP Image Zone, HP Digital Imaging Monitor, HP Document Viewer and HP Director software bundle. Ever since I intalled it, I get the flashes then Desktop.

So, I uninstalled all but the actual printer drivers and all is well. I guess the HP software conflicts with the BF2 1.41 patch. Anywho, I just got done playing BF2 for an hour and a half with no troubles.
Toodles. ------------- Wxpunk
