256 ram is good but i think that may be the minimum. Upgrade...Christmas is soon!

Exactly what he said, go from 256 to atleast 512, if you can swing it go to 768 and you will notice faster loading on the levels and almost no lag at all.

Hope this helps

It still dont explain the lag...

I have

P4 2.0Ghz Geforce 2 MX 200 64MB 120Gb Western Digital 7200rpm HDD + 30Gb Western Digital Cable BroadBand 600Kbit/sec 256 DDR RAM

and mine runs perfect...and i have a Geforce 2!!! :p

Theres some tips on this forum somewhere m8....do a search for BF1942 Tips...or something...

One of them was to turn of Crive Caching....Right click on your Harddrive in "my Computer" and turn of Fast reading...;)

I had similar problems with a p4 2.0 system. My problem was my soundblaster card. I had to disable all hardware accelaration in directx. This solved my problem completely. There are descriptions of this procedure in other forums if you look around.

I have 512mb of ram, so I don't know if lack of ram will cause lag, but I have read several posts from people who have slow loading times due to less ram.

You also said that your ping was around 85. I've noticed that I will experience some lag at a ping that high. I always try to find servers where my ping is between 40-60. Using Gamespy, I can achieve this by only logging onto servers that are running at pings under 100. I've never used the in-game server selection, so I have no idea how accurate its ping detection is.

A lot of times its the sound that gets ya... BattleField 1942 is a VERY soundintensive game. Spring for a quality soundcard, its cheaper than a 512 stick of ddr I have a Soundblaster Audigy Gamer, its like 80 bucks and works more that great!!!

You guys like to give stats on your boxes, but unlike the 98 days, there are multiple OSes... What OS do you run?

P4 1.7Ghz 256Mb RDram GF3 128Mb decent speed HD... Crappy DSL on Win2k Pro

I have very little lag in game, the only problem is that my pagefile can fill up after playing a few maps, and Ive heard there is a problem with the way DirectX and windows uses the page file, Easy fix is to buy more memory, or go in and monkey with your settings, but i get great framerates in games, even with a mess of vehicles and people going crazy.

Try making sure you update to any new service packs and patches for all your hardware, OS, and the game, hope that helps for you.
