Wow...thats really wierd. What videocard are you using. Also, are you using optimized drivers like OMEGA. Sometimes those can cause rendering errors

I'm using a Geforce 6200, it was working perfectly yesterday before I updated my AGP drivers and no I'm not using OMEGA drivers.

Ok I didn't make this thread to get flamed, and it worked fine until I upgraded my AGP drivers, and I'm running it in the right display, I didn't change any of my settings.

Sorry, Its just I have seen so many people make the horrible mistake of buying a "budget" video card. They are not made for gaming. They are made for DVD decoding. Its like making eggs in the microwave vs. a frying pan. The microwaved eggs taste like crap but took a lot less resources to make. If I were you I would have bought a Radeon 9800pro for the same price. The 9800 was made to be good but is slightly older. The 6200 is newer but is made to preform horribly. nVidia designed the 6200 not with gamers in mind but for system builders making PCs for Multimedia use.

IF the game was functioning properly prior to the driver update, you need to roll back your drivers. Use a driver cleaner utility (available for free on the web) or remove them using control panel (usually sufficient). Re-install the drivers that were working and you should be fine. In the 'Add/Remove Programs' component of Control Panel, both of your drivers should be listed as 'NVIDIA drivers' or similar. The BF2 CD includes the most up to date, fully functional NVIDIA drivers. Turn on autorun for the ROM device you are playing BF2 from, insert the CD / DVD and a menu will come up. Move to the 'advanced menu' if need be and select 'install NVIDIA drivers', having removed the old drivers first.

IF the game was not functioning properly prior to the update, those visual defects would indicate that your card doesn't support an aspect of the game. You may be able to remedy the problem by altering certain video settings in the in game options menu.

try going to your card manufacturer;s website....the two most popular...
http://www.nvidia.co...ers/drivers.asp if you have a Nvidia card like a Ge-brand
https://support.ati....dge&folderID=27
ATI card...like the Radeon or X- brands
and if you have anything else...just try this little small site called google...it's usually effective

Try Omega Drivers, they are optimized for gaming but they lose some image quality
