Mustang05gt500, I don't think your card is supported for Battlefield 2. It's not listed on the game's supported video cards list. That card doesn't support shaders version 2 which I think are required for the game. (Version 2 is needed if DirectX 9 is to use programmable pixel and vertex shaders in hardware). Your card uses shaders version 1, (used in DirectX 8.1). Anyway, here's the list of supported cards according to EA Games FAQ:
Supported Video Cards: ATI Radeon
- X700 (PCIe), X600 (PCIe), X800 XT Platinum Edition, X800 PRO, X300 series.
- 9800 series, 9700 series, 9600 series, 9559 (RV350LX), 9500 series, 8500 series.
- 6600 (PCIe), PCX 5900 (PCIe).
- 5800 series (AGP).
- 6800 Ultra, 6800 GT, 6800.
- FX 5950 series, FX 5900 series, FX 5700 series.

I know the 9200SE is, isn't the 9250 newer?
Yeah, the 9250 is newer than that 9200se, cuz my card even came with the cd for the drivers of the 9200se. But also, the game runs on my friends pc. But listen to this, his pc is a 700 MHZ pentium 2 with 128 MB SDRAM (i have ddr) and its not agp, its pci (NOT express) and its 2 models lower than the MINIMUM geforce supported of its kind. BUT it works on his pc!!!
Slightly cooler than a n00b

Go to your Smartgart settings and change the agp speed from 8x to 4x, it will then work. I think your friend is lying btw.
