After updating to 1.4, I played Battlefield 2 with PoE mod activated. I played for a good 30 minutes approximately. But just when it reaches around that time the crashing happens when either one of these things occurs:
-I get shot to death in the game -I'm REALLY close to big explosions
After that, the game freezes and the audio sounds like a broken record before the game eventually crashes without giving me any reason of error. Can anyone help me? I think this happens with BF2 in general for me and not just the mods.
Here's the specs to my PC Pentium 4 2.8 GHz 1 GB of RAM 128 MB Geforce 6200 DVD RW drive CD RW drive Integrated SoundMAX
Probably vid card overheating, this is typical behaviour of that issue. The ard gradually gets hotter and hotter until finally particular busy moment causes it to crash.
Yeah Gforce 6200 i'd agree. My olds Radeon 9800 PRO 128mb used to do the same thing until i upgraded to an X800GTO 256mb 256bit card. Now it plays like a champ! AMD 2.3 Barton3000 1GB Rosewill DDR X800GTO256mb Audigy SE 5.1
I didn't make it!
SoundMax Integrated Audio == ALC 97 sound codec emulation. (I have the same thing on my Asus board; it is called 'ALC 97 Enhanced Audio'.) SoundMax is just a brand name.
Try this: in audio options, set renderer = 'software', quality ='medium', and disable EAX. This may be specific to my system, but in my case it fixed a lot of problems.
Of course, bigger and faster Gfx cards always help out, as the other posters said. I have less issues now with an ATI x1600pro 512M, but the sound fix worked for me when I had an ATI x700 256 - and is still needed to play more than 10 minutes without crashing.
so I actually need a better card? Another thing... does it matter if it's a 128 MB or 256 MB variant of the card in question?
sorry to post again, but does attaching a fan that's compatible to the video card help?
nope.. it isn't about cooling the card. It is about supporting the chipset, and how "Good" the card is.
