Hope you guys can help me out. Every time I join a server the loading process goes fine, but everytime the server changes maps my game crashes to the desktop.But it still loads and I connect. So what can I do about this?:confused: :bows:

Hi moosey,

Not sure exactly what you mean by this,

my game crashes to the desktop.But it still loads and I connect.

It either crashes or it doesn't, which means if it crashes the game shuts down and drops you to the desktop, doesn't finish loading and doesn't connect, and if it doesn't crash the game is still running but you just see the desktop for a few moemnts before the game goes on loading?

So. Does the game crash and you have to restart to join? Or does it just show the desktop for a few moments before it finishes loading. If it's the latter that's normal, happens on mine too.

Need more info

:cya: :cya: :cya:

hi!

this problem is happening 2 me also :(

had a problem when installing patch 1.2 at first, already patched with 1.1, so re-installed the game and applied 1.2, without applying patch 1.1!

everything works fine until the game crashes when reconnecting 2 the server while changing maps... u can still start the game, connect to a server and play, but when the server changes maps, the game will crash again...

if anyone can help...

cyaz! :)

Hi apocalypse_kid. Thanks for answering my question. What exactly happens is, Every time the map changes in multiplayer mode, my computer crashes to the desktop for about 1-2 seconds. But it soon loads the game afterwards. In other words my game goes to the desktop after map changes then loads the level, but yes, I'm still connected and do not have to restart the game. This happens everytime the maps change. Before and after the patches. Or maybe my computer doesn't like EA games, cause Global operations did the same damn thing.:rock: :stallard: But yes the game is loading and I still see the desktop for a few seconds.

Hi moosey,

I believe that's normal behaviour depending on your vid settings. Mine does exactly the same. I have the game resolution set to lower than the desktop resolution on my system so that may exacerbate the situation, but between each map change the desktop appears for a second or so.

But I believe -=Viriato=-'s problem is different. Does it happen with all different game servers? I have noticed on the odd occaision I get kicked when the map changes, but when I rejoin all the other players are gone also - so it was actually the game server having a problem not my machine.

You can also try disabling anything running in the background such as MSN Messenger or yahaoo - firewalls, antivirus etc in case they are causing probs.
