when i load up the game to play it, when it plays video sequences, the sound is ahead of the video, when music plays, there's gaps in it which last 3 - 5 secs, and gameplay is slow here's my spec: AMD Athlon 1.0 Ghz 768 MB RAM Win XP Pro VIA AC'97 Onboard Audio (Driver Version: 6.14.1.3880, 19/08/03) Nvidia GeForce4 MX440-SE 128MB (Driver Version: 5.3.0.3, 17/11/03) DirectX 9.0b i've reinstalled (just before posting so i'll see how it goes), tweaked settings and looked for updated drivers but there isn't any more... it never used to do that until about 2 days ago...

Yeah that sounds about right, according to your specs Just rename the Movies folder in the eagames directory to Muvies You will never have that opening sequence crap again

i have Win98SE on CD, but will only use as a last resort... a reinstall of the game did......NOTHING! not a damned thing.... :furious: i did play it on 98SE once, played like a charm, but i remember when i first got BF, i installed it and started to play and it was doing then what it's doing now, i updated sound drivers and directx and it was perfect, but since then, i've had XP related problems and needed to reinstall it, but i did re-update directx and sound drivers, would it make any difference if i install this in a set order, this is the order i did before (when i first got the game): Game >> Patch >> Sound >> DX 9.0b but when i reinstalled XP, i did this: Game >> Patch >> DX 9.0b >> Sound could that be what has screwed it up?

The game is just demanding and your system isnt blowing the specs out of the water. Before you take dramatic action like uninstalling and reinstalling and potentially formatting start simple. Turn all the stetting to minimum. I can tell you right off you will NEVER have good sound quality with the sound your using.

This game is just to demanding.

You video card is a little dated.

You have a decent amount of ram but what speed is it. And you have an old CPU which leads me to believe the RAM cant be all that great.

This is the most demanding game I have ever had. Have you even tried turning all the settings to minimum? Try turning the sound off all together to see if that the problem.

I would never expect better then 40-50- FPS with your current setup.

i fixed it, i noticed it started to slow when connected to the net, so i tried my old Intel 536EP V.92 Modem (the one that used to be in there) and the game worked properly again, the other modem i have, Conexant HCF 56k, the drivers for XP that came on it's cd were not Windows XP Logo Tested, meaning they had no signature in them to say they're ok, the Intel modem's XP drivers have been Windows XP Logo Tested and have passed, couldn't find logo tested drivers for that other modem anywhere, not even www.conexant.com
