the game runs great with no probs, until i go t o the dallas level and my whole system locks up!!!!! specs, p4 2.6 800 front side bus 1 gig ps1600 ram raedon 9700 pro card. the game looks great and rocks even at 1600 x 1200! it just takes a shit when its loading that level....any help????
The same thing is happening to me. I've tried reinstalling the game, but I don't have a clue as to what might be going on. I think it's probably something to do with the card. Maybe. I have a 9700 pro as well, and all the levels worked fine until I got to the Dallas. Level won't even start. It stops and freezes at Loading Media.
what i di was enable the cheats by changing the the executable then i typed maplist and skipped the first level of dallas and everything was fine from there
add +set r_precompressed_textures 0 in your shortcut like this:"C:\Program Files\Activision\EF2\EF2.exe" +set r_precompressed_textures 0 or: set r_precompressed_textures 0 in your cfg that will do the trick! works for me! I've also a 9700pro. so prehaps that solves the problems for you 2?
I had this problem too, but when I updated drivers for my Radeon 9700 pro, it worked like a charm. Try that. :)
