My friend just recently installed the new HD 3850 with new Catalyst drivers and All of his other games including BF2142 work fine, but, when he goes to launch BF2 the splash screen appears the monitor turns black, then flashes, then he is back to desktop. I suggested to add the force res size command during launch and He uses both adapters for dual monitors and he tried disabling the other, and still no luck. I had him check Even Log in Admin tools for any specific error and there was none.. any idea to what the problem could be ?
He is also running 64bit XP with an AMD Opteron.
oh sorry and I forgot he also did try a complete re-install of bf2+expansion+SpecialForces+patches and still nothing.
Keep reinstalling bf2 can be a pain, nothin wrong with the card trust me ive been through it
Make sure your friend deletes the BF2 profile folder prior to reinstalling, that might work.
Delluser.....dell why oh why????
Hey I was planning on getting a 3850 and battlefield 2. Does anyone out there run BF2 on a 3850 with no problems?
Go into My Documents and find the Battlefield 2 folder and in there go to Profiles. Then go through each folder and open the video.con file with notepad. You should see VideoSettings.setResolution. Set it to VideoSettings.setResolution 800x600@60Hz and do the same for the other folders in the profile folder. Then get rid of your forced resolution and see if it opens.
I had the same problem you had and that's what I had to do. After you do that and if it works, then set your forced resolution through the shortcut and see if it works
What OS are you using?
when i get this problem i just delete the bf2 folder in my documents completely. that has almost always solved the problem. you'll lose your controls, but its better then reinstallin over and over...
What OS are you using?\
I'm using Vista 32-bit, but I had the problem when I was using XP SP2.
I was using XP SP2
32 bit or 64?
32-bit, I had too many problems with drivers and compatibility with XP x64 on my laptop. Definitely try what I mentioned early though, it fixed the problem for me. If it doesn't work, just delete the whole profiles folder
Ok so all that is kinda long but I thought maybe someone here might also have the same problem. Ok onto my question: does anyone here run a ATI 3850, Vista Home premium 32 bit, and Battlefield 2 with no problems?
