I agree with you warriorscott. as I stated previously on other threads and on this one:

1)problems installing, patching, ect may be solved by a manual uninstall of the game and a reintall.
How do you manually uninstall Battlefield 2?

How do you manually install the game if a normal installation does not work?

2) video issues with nvidia are resolved either by reverting to the 71.xx drivers or by updating your agp driver for your system board.

3)making sure you have an adequate power supply for your system, exspecially if you have the latest generation of video cards (ati x series, nvidia 66xx, 68xx, 78xx series). this means proving proper voltage on the 3rd rail as well as enough power.

if you were having problems with dual channel memory then either you need to update your system bios, change your your memory (run memtest x86 to see if you have bad memory) or your memory controller is starting to fail (this means replacing your system board).

update your agp driver (system board). by patch I assume you mean the bf2 1.02 patch.

dx9c plus hotfix: from iamnotageek.com

This has been ripped out of one of the latest SP2 builds.
I've decided to put these up for anybody that was wanting them but having trouble getting their hands on them through other sources. http://www.iamnotage...loads/DX-9c.zip

http://www.iamnotage...5&stc=1&thumb=1 (http://www.iamnotage...achmentid=17195) http://www.iamnotage...6&stc=1&thumb=1 (http://www.iamnotage...achmentid=17196)

Installation Instructions:
(1) boot into safemode.
(2) Install Direct X 9.0c executable.
(3) Install Hotfix.
(4) Install the Registry Patch.
(5) Reboot.
(6) Click Start. Click Run. Type dxdiag.
(7) Verify it has been installed under the system tab.
(8) You're finished.

I tried updating:


All my ATI drivers (Includes AGP Drivers)
DirectX 9.0C
Hotfix
DirectX 9.0C registry
Battlefield v1.02 Patch

I did exactly what you told me to do.... my personal opinion is i dont think you need to purchase another card, but i do know wthat ive seen on the EA site that it dosent support Radeon 9200 SERIIES. But that info is just useful since on the box it says the minimum requirments were RADEON 8500...... :tazz:

I autoplay BF2... and look at the EAsy info... this is what it looks like BEFORE i run the game:

This is what i get after i get the black screen waiting to see iff something happens, and re-autoplay the CD:

Well A if EA say the card is unsupported then it wont work and if it does it will be a miracle. And that computer isnt good enough to play BF2 even if it did work the fps would be so low as to be unplayable.

well more memory is an easy and cheap way to improve performance. now you could possibly have some bad memory on the video card or it could be a defect of the game. had to say. internesting that it stops seeing the 128 megs of video ram.

It is interesting might be the reason its not supported, they might not have been able to fix that bug, maybe someone will though.
