  • Newly installed game wont open

    My new game wont open at all. The screen goes black flickers and returns to desktop or I get the following error message:

    "mods/bf2/shaders/lightening.fx not found!!! _DO _ check your working directory_AND_sync your shaders folders before calling upon your local rendering programmer/GP. (really!)"


    As for the 1.4 Patch. I got 2 error messages and the Patchlog file dislpays this message:

    "Applying HISTORY File Patch for 'BF2VoipServer.dll'

    Updating ...
    Updating to next version ...
    error ept0038: Failure Renaming/Deleting File C:\Program Files\EA GAMES\Battlefield 2\RTA06050"



    I even downloaded the Windows Vista fix file for several programs including BF 2 at http://support.microsoft.com/kb/932246/en-us

    I also right-clicked my desktop icons and set to Run as XP compatible.

    I have uniinstalled and reinstalled het game a few times too.

    Please help!

    welcome to forums.

    first problem: try clearing your bf2 cache

    second problem: current patch is 1.41, not 1.4

    ensure you have the right one, post back if you're still up a creek.

      There is no Mods/cache folder in my Battlefield 2 game folder. My Audio and video drivers are up to date too.

          My system Basics are below:

          Processor
          AMD Athlon 64 x2 Dual-Core Processor 5000+; 2.6GHz

          Operating system
          Genuine Windows Vista Home Premium

          Memory
          2048MB PC2-4200 DDR2 SDRAM

          Graphics card
          NVIDIA GeForce 6150 LE Graphics supporting up to 256MB shared video memory

          Hard drive
          400GB 7200RPM SATA hard drive

          Primary CD/DVD drive
          SuperMulti DVD Writer with LightScribe

          I was told by another BF2 player that since I never even played online yet, there's probably no cache folder.

            graphics card is the most likely culprit. bf2 likes video memory. that is an integrated "card", correct?
