This is really Odd, All of a sudden after installing .66 I end up with more disconnects than usual, but here s what is really puzzling me, I play BF and all mods now since I installed .66 and in the movie during the server and game option gui. You can see the movie stop for bit every few seconds. I start a single player game figuring it will at least have no Internet Latency issues. and there it is I start running and Blip, 1, 2, BLip, 1, 2 , Blip every second or 2 the screen stops and goes again. what gives? I've checked for trojans, spyware, virii, etc. emptied bins, reset settings etc. No other games I own and play do this. anyone else seeing this? I do know this. The only thing I did was unplug everything so I could add a few looms on my exposed wiring. and that's it nothing else. Puzzling indeed. Any thoughts guys? how about a clean install? I'll try that now. and post after....unless I get tackled and force fed a better solution...:lol:

I'd recommend a clean install. Update all drivers, and Direct X. This may sound like a very stupid question, and I dont mean to offend, but do you have the BF1942 1.61 patch?

EA's incremental patches are known to cause issues, I've had problems in the past. Unfortunately this cant be helped unless they make a stand alone 1.61 patch. The only other thing I can think of is your Forgotten Hope download is bugged, I've had problems in the past here too, so I know how annoying it is. If you can spare the time and effort, you may want to download 0.65 and 0.66 again.

Unfortunately I'm not really a hardware expert, so I cant help you there. I hope you get it sorted though, I know how much of a bitch BF1942 can be.

Nothing I did worked until I reformatted everything. Either Trillian pro 3 did it or I had some sort of malicious stuff running. clean OS install and nothing but BF and FH things seem fine. All except that now BF says I have a different version of .66 than everyone else and I cannot join any servers.

different version of .66? it doesn't complain on you not having the 1.61 BF-patch, is it?
