I just installed the new patch, and when i double click to run my game, or click run on the autorun nothing happens. It comes up with the initial BattleField1942 load screen, just the partial-screen one(sort of black). Then that goes away and nothing happens.. No error message or anything. It worked fine before the patch, and I just got new vid. card drivers. If anyone has any ideas please let me know. Thanks. -TiGeR
if you were running any mods or skins in the 1.1 version...you need to delete them in order for 1.2 to work.....other than that I'd suggest a fresh install of BF and patch it to 1.2 again..see if that fixes it :cya:

You really should search the forums, everything is in here. But I'll give you the easy way out, it seems like this is your problem.
"Allow all refresh rates = 0 " to "Allow all refresh rates = 1".
Just change that under C:\Program Files\EA GAMES\Battlefield 1942\Mods\bf1942\Settings and double click "VideoDefault" to find the above information.
Well I never downloaded any mods, just played stock. And I did try to reinstall the whole thing and start over, didnt work. I also did what you said how I changed the setting in the Config. Didnt seem to do anything. Any more suggestions? -TiGeR
WHAT VID CARD DO YOU HAVE? AND WHERE DID YOU GET THE DRIVERS?
I have a GeForce 4 Ti4200 64mb, and got my driver from Guru3d.com -TiGeR
I would just go back to whatever driver you were using before...just cause it's the latest driver doesn't always mean it's better for what you're trying to do
LoL, I was having this problem with that driver too. I just installed the new one today, hoping it would fix the problem. -TiGeR
ok...where did you download the 1.2 patch?
I think I linked from official site. Ill try it again, from another place. -TiGeR
