Just got my awesome new Dell 24" monitor hooked up and looks great. Played WoW and it was good.

Can't launch BF2. CTD after splash screen. Tried disabling the old monitor, no diff. Tried disabling the 24" and running the game on the old monitor (17") and game started without any problems. Tried switching the screen res. in windows of the 24" to the same as the 17", and BF2 still won't launch.

I'm dying to see the game on the big screen! Anyone got any ideas? Downloaded the newest nvidia driver before installing the big screen.

p4 2.6 1 gig ram nvidia 6600gt (both monitors into same card, 24" on DVI)

So battlefield 2 doesn't launch when you got your widescreen in your computer

Uh, yes. The game won't launch if the widescreen is selected as my primary display, but does launch if my old 17" monitor is the primary.

BF2 doesn't support widescreen so go sleep, and dont try using the widescreen res hack for bf2 or u get banned because the FOV gets bigger..., just forget it widescreen + games = mess, who cares if it works with WoW - WoW sucks , ffXI ownz it
