I was feeling for a good saturdaynight with FH2, but I cant get it to start.

I start FH2, and get that "Battlefield 2" icon, the monitor turns black just as it usually do when starting up the game, but then it crashes and im back to desktop. Same thing happens when im starting vanilla BF2.

But the strange thing is that everything worked fine just last week, and I havent changed anything except that i've downloaded ATC, but i have played after that. I have also changed my monitor since my old one died.

Anyone got a clue what it can be?

BF2.exe needs to start with 60Hz, since you got a new monitor i guess the refresh rates have changed and now this error shows up.

Launching/Loading Issues: The most common problem with BF2 is that the game crashes to desktop or goes to a black screen when you first launch it. The reason for this is either incompatible hardware (make sure you meet all the minimum specs), or more usually the fact that you're not running at the default Windows XP refresh rate (60Hz). By default the game tries to launch at 800x600@60Hz initially, so your system must be able to run that same resolution and refresh rate, otherwise the game will abort. If you are using any refresh rate override program/method, disable it (e.g. if you're using Refresh Force, click the 'Restore Original Settings' button and apply). Alternatively, see the Advanced Tweaking section of the guide for details on how to set a different startup resolution, in case your graphics card/monitor simply cannot do 800x600@60Hz resolution. Once you've got the game running, you can then change the resolution to suit your taste in the in-game settings, and importantly you can select a higher refresh rate. Then you can reapply any refresh rate override and the game will launch without any problems. To set a non-standard resolution see the Advanced Tweaking section.

I had the same thing when i switched monitors. I change the resolution in the video.con file and everything worked fine again. Look for dumpfiles in the /my documents/battlefield 2/dmp files or something like that.

I thought the problem was solved, but not :( At least I reach the log in page now, after about 20-30 sec of connecting to accountserver the game crashes.

I have also reinstalled BF2 and FH2, but problem is still there.
