Hey i downloaded a bunch of custom maps for battlefield vietnam off bfvfiles.com but whenever i try to play any of them they just freeze when they load. The green bar thingy will load almost all the way, like | | this far away from the end, then it freezes. This is the same for all of them. I have version 1.02. :confused:
Custom maps take ages to load. i have seen some take between 2-5 minutes to load, just be patient. it will load. i suggest when loading a custom map, to do something exciting while you wait, like watch grass grow. LOL. nothing is wrong with the map(most likely) or your computer. all custom maps get like a milliemeter from they end and then seem to "freeze", but it is loading.
Most of the customs map don't work .... actually most of them crash to Desktop after they loaded like 90% .... just because they will patch it so it doesn't crash it still doesn't change the fact that compatibility is non-existent .... so i think you are very right STOCKENBLOCKEN in your observation while the rest of the people choose to remain ignorant .... they've managed to take the fun out of things , big time , especially modding .... Enjoy ! :D
if you can .... :D
Just sharing what i have noticed, and i have several maps that are custom maps. and they ALL just take ages to load. have had no other problems than that. and as far as "compatablity" goes, unless the custom map creator is a total tool, it should work for anyone that can play BFV vanilla, because they should use the same graphics engine.
