Hi All, Got a problem - just got a new comp and put on A2. Everything looks good until i go to change the map. The game drops back to windows. Any ideas Am running the 1.1 patch and 1.3.1 upgrade :confused:

Did it work ok with the base install? How about after applying the 1.1 patch?
Best to start again and install one thing at a time. I cant imagine it being a problem with the base game or 1.1 patch therefore the 1.3.1 upgrade may be the problem, although i understand many people use this without a hitch.
I presume when you say it crashes when changing the map you mean actually while still making changes to the Instant Action setup? Or do you mean it crashes after starting a game with anything apart from the default map? Are you trying to change the map to another stock map or to a map you downloaded? If its one you downloaded maybe there is a problem with it.
Well just done a reload and it drops out with just the standard game loaded - funny thing is that it will play the warzone game or random map - it only does the flip out when i hit the map select button. Any Ideas??
I was running the 1.3.1 on the old comp without problems - so dont think it is that. This is exactly what happens - I open up instant action or multi player - it comes up with the warzone 8 player map - i then try to change by clicking the map select button - this is when it warps out back to windows. I also thought about d/loaded maps - took out all of them and put in the stocks - still the same prob. I will delete all and do a reload 1 by 1 and see where i get the prob. PS I dont get any probs joining games in multi.

Very strange. Im out of suggestions then as it only seems to happen in Instant action.... maybe worth considering doing a scan of your hard drive with checking for bad sectors. I had a long time ago a game with strange errors that i just couldnt resolve until i found i had a bad sector.
Got it sorted I deleted all the maps in the BZN folder and then tried the map select button. This time no crash and it came up with a empty select screen (as expected with no maps). I then d/loaded trips map pack and low and behold it all works. Must be something in one of the stock maps causing the prob. For me it is no probs getting rid of them - never played them.:cya:
