PostSubject: BF2 vista problem   Sun 01 Nov 2009, 04:45

Managed to install bf2/special forces and patch up to 1.50 ( which is current patch afaik) my problem is whenever i try to boot up either of these my screen goes black for a few seconds (10-20ish) then i get thrown back to my desktop. Checking the task manager finds no trace of the game running after this happens and i cant seem to get any further.

I have tried compatability mode and running as admin but no joy so far, anyone else having this problem?

Not having either thing running on my system only help I can offer is what I find in Google, which I assume you will have looked at too.

The general consensus I have seen so far is that it wont work with vista with 1 gig of ram. you need at least 2 gigs apparently and this caused folks a lot of problems.

Although other suggestions are:

* In control panel, find User Account, switch to classic view if you can't find it.
Turn user account off. The game should start fine apparently.

* Problems with vista, disable UAC controle and see if that helps too?

I am sure the answer is out there mate, just a matter of finding it. Wink

Sf is a true expansion ( included in the deluxe edition afaik) so my guess is you'll need to buy it, all the down-loadable stuff is included ( Euro force, Armored fury etc) in the 1.5 patch according to the patch notes i've read.

I think, i may have to find a retail>1.41 patch then install the 1.5 patch ( even though i have whats supposedly a 1.5 patch for all versions) to get my game to work, will test it and find out Smile

Haven't got to the patching point yet due to being unable to set up or retrieve my account info ingame, or it just plain refusing my details when I know they are 100% correct as I am copying them off EA. Fecking game has it in for me I swear. Laughing

Hard to play a game that won't let you create an account, which I need to do before I can register my booster and SF bits of the game. Going to leave it a day and see if it helps, apparently this has been a problem since 2007, and people are still posting about it being a problem today in 2009.

Not exactly filling me with confidence for BC2 if you catch my drift.

That is the next thing on my list to try mate, means I loose my name that would go with the original account/email though.

I thought it might be a workaround for it, but not much of one Bro.
