  • Game not starting up (searched for it..)

    First off, I searched about 10 forums for the solution to my problem.

    Without any succes.

    So, I start the game, the tank windows appears, the screen turns black and then...yeah, desktop.

    What I've done so far, given what other forums advised me.

    - Reinstalled game (about 7 times)

    - DL'ed Patch 1.41 FULL and installed it also about seven times

    - Installed the patch in safe mode

    - Installed the latest graphics card driver

    - Installed the nVidia driver of the installation CD

    - Installed an even older driver...

    - Set the value of Fullsize in VideoDefault.con from 0 to 1

    - Tried to start the game without ANY patches

    - Updated DirectX independently.

    And yup, it still doesn't work. :/

    System:
    Athlon AMD 3000+
    1024 MB Ram
    Geforce 7600GT

    Need help, urgently.

    Is that another way of saying you tried running the game in windowed mode?

      To be honest, I don't even know.

      Someone in another forum suggested it and I just did what he told me..

          Ok, go into your BF2 shortcut and in the target line change the 1 after fullscreen to a 0.
          So it will look something like this:

          \EA Games\BF2.exe" +menu 1 +fullscreen 0
          You should see an error message, tell us what it says.

          Also, take a look at this thread.

            I dont know if this applies, but I had a similar problem where when i started vf2 up it would go black and then go to desktop. THe problem was my monitor settings. I changed moniters from a good monitor too a crappier. With my good one I had bf2 settings resolution to something my crappy monitor could not support. So bf2 just kept crashing to desktop untill i manually changed the settings in the bf2 files.

              yeah it could be a monitor problem...

              try this..go into My Documents and delete the Battlefield 2 folder and see if that helps

                This is what appears when the entry in the Video.con is set to 800x600@60Hertz



                If set to 1280x1024@85Hertz (my desktop resolution), no error occurs, but the window is closed immediately.

                I'll now follow the thread you posted and see how far I come.

                Thanks!

                (btw, sorry for my miserable english :/ )

                I already tried that, but w/o succes. The black screen that appears after I start bf2 up just lasts a bit longer until it boots me to my desktop again.

                Thanks anyway.

                    OMG, it really worked.

                    Thank you so much, dude! And everybody else wanting to help me solve my problem, thank you so!


                    As a little conclusion to this whole Start, Window, Blackscreen, Desktop thing, which occurs for quite a lot of people, a problem with the refresh rate seems to be the general explanation. Either it has got something to do with your settings or the monitor you use needs a reinstall or a reconfiguration.

                    *harrumph, hint for a sticky *

                        i also jst noticed this:

                        "Installed the nVidia driver of the installation CD"

                        you'll also want to install newer drivers for ur 7600Gt
