Hello I have read the forum and have seen people having the same problem as I, game does not start it just goes back to the desktop. I have tried all the things mentioned for answers in the forum with no luck. I am running xp pro with a AMD Athlon (TM) xp 1900+ Nvidia Geforce 4 mx 440 120G hardisk

Please someone help. I want to play the dam game! :mad:

Go to the ea official site and go to problems and help. Look for battlefield1942 and search for your problem! (my spelling is not so good) :cya:

Quote from another thread by me:

After unzipping some skins I downloaded, they sometimes get sent to its own dir under the dir I unzip it to. This will prevent BF1942 from running sometimes, which really annoys me because sometimes I end up installing more than one at a time and have to backtrack myself a bit. I wish BF would just tell me something instead of just closing the start up logo after executing it. Maybe that'll give you a leading hand knowing you use Merciles and a bunch of skins/models too.

If you have installed some stuff, you might want to examine all the dirs. It doesn't start if there's a dir created somewhere that's not part of the game folder.
