i downloaded the 1.02 patch,installed it,now every time i try to start the game,the battlefield vietnam screen appears for a few seconds then goes,then the cd drive stops spinning,if i reinstall the game without the patch then it runs fine,any ideas anyone please,thanks all
i would contact EA tech support. see what they say. but it could be a common mistake. you may have downloaded the server sided incremental patch. the 1.02.2 patch download size should be 16+megs.
Although, if that were the case, the patch probably wouldn't have installed at all. Maybe they messed around with the CD check? Does BFV have that problem with "Allow all refresh rates"? That always gave me a problem in BF42.
the ONLY thing they changed for client side is the CTD issue. it sounds like the original poster just got the wrong patch. and yes the server patch might have installed, because you can run a dedicated server through the game interface.
