if you have Vista, the options.cfg file doesn't appear in the BC directory. My friend has "Vista Basic" and i had to use the search feature to find it. It was a hidden file in some random place, but it was the right one. Delete it and you will solve the problem.
That is only correct sometimes.
Yup, its in the Virtualstore part of your system.
Untill you move all the files to the normal directory and delete the folder that is(thats what I've done, no problems).
My options.cfg is where it should be. It only places it in the Virtualstore folder if you're using compatability mode, which isn't necessary. BC works fine with Vista.
I have a similar problem. I have windows xp. installed the patch, and i can not play the game. Any suggestions?
Is it clean BC 1.01 install or you have some mod too? Have you tried updating your graphic drivers? Try running the game in compatibility mode for Windows 98 / Windows ME.
