It came up to me that it was a long time ago since i used windows update, so installed a bunch (a dozen!) of drivers and upgrades today! now i have problems starting it up from a server! I get into menu, choosing server and it loads the map, about 25% of it, then it just crashes back to desktop, no error messages, no nuthin...it just fades away from the screen!! what is this? whats the problem?

Qeustion 1: sounds like something in your folders got screwed up, go check em Question 2:It may have screwed your registry up waiting so long to update. And the final answer is..................................... FULL UNISTALL/REINSTALL, sorry:mad:
I follow teh Moo!

I recently updated windows, along with some drivers and had a similiar problem.
1. Try cutting your profiles ( located in the settings folder ) from BF1942 ( paste them on the desktop temporarily ) and then see if it starts up.
That fixed the startup problem for me, but then I also had to rollback a video driver cause I was getting missing textures and I didnt feel like spending time with the settings.
hi sorry i couldnt answer this umtil now!! maybe my folders got screwed up or something, but the problem is solved now (didnt do anything actually) just tried again and again and again...and -voila!- it works smoothe as a klock! wy was my PC acting like that?? thx for all help!
