there is no renderer.allowallrefreahrates or anythhing resembling it. "rem * TEMP * renderer.setFullScreen 1 renderer.fieldOfView 1 renderer.globalLodRadius 1 renderer.globalLodRadiusScaleFactor 5 console.showStats 0" is all i can find

THis is mine. Its called the Video default.con file. Open it with notepad or wordpad.

rem * TEMP * renderer.setFullScreen 1 renderer.fieldOfView 1 renderer.globalLodRadius 0.5 renderer.globalLodRadiusScaleFactor 20 console.showStats 0 renderer.allowAllRefreshRates 1 THis is that you want. renderer.forceSwSkinning 0 renderer.lockfps 3000

Hi ave_mashta,

I assume you have updated to the latest version of BF, cause I don't think that line was in the first release, it only came out with 1.2 and later.

Also that bloop is an error sound, means windows can't perform the requested operation, it could be cause your hardware isn't able to play the game, your drivers may need updating or just about a 100 other things, so a quick list of your hardware would be helpful.

Good luck
