Whenever I start bf2, the loading screen comes up, then the screen goes black and the game closes. Whats up?
XP Home SP2 AMD Athlon 64 X2 (2.2GHz) 256MB RAM Radeon X1650
You really should have at LEAST 512mb RAM in order to play BF2, as it is a system requirement for the game (check on back of package). You're computer probably just doesn't have enough space to load the whole game. This is true as far as I know.
By the way, depending where you live, 512mb RAM can be fairly cheap. I know that they are about $50 if not less here in Australia.
Hope this helps
oh sorry, i was pretty tired when i made that. I do have 512mb. I also have another 512 stick that I might be able to use.
I also have Daemon Tools 3.47, could this be causing a problem?
EDIT: I have the Deluxe Edition
Ok, so i got it working by reinstalling some older video drivers. But now when i try to run the patch, it just sits there. So i opened task manager and i see two "BF2_Patch_1.41.exe"s for each time i click it. Now whats up? I'm considering re-downloading the patch, but it takes ~2 hours.
the patch will load, it just takes a long ass time. Go eat a hotpocket and it'll be ready. Trust me.
I followed your instructions (even the hot pocket part) and no change. The patching window doesn't even open. I just sits there. And after about 20 sec the process disappears from WTM. Any ideas?
I had to install BF2 on my sisters computer, (runs at 800MGz, really slow) and the patch took 10 minutes to load. I was just updating her virus-protection for her and it just popped up. By the way, is it the 1.41 patch? About 536mb? As this is the newest patch.
Anyways, try opening the processes tab (in the Task Manager) and ending processes that you dont need. But be sure you know which ones you end as ending the wrong one can cause system instability. Eg. You can close the process Image name - wmplayer.exe as thats windows media player and can just eat up a chunk of memory while you are trying to do something. Same with MSN Messenger etc.
lol, i tried that. And I was about to tell you it had not worked, but it just popped up. And yeah, its 1.41.
Thanks guys :bows:
So do you mean it is working now or not? I'm suspecting it has. If so, GOOD ON YA MATE!!! lol Speedy
