I'm having some problems with Battlefield 2... Completely out of the blue, following a return from a weekend out with my partner.
When I click on the shortcut or EXE of BF2, it shows me the splash screen... Which then promptly shuts down, as it should do.... However, the executable does not open. I am stuck with a BF2.exe in my task manager, using 50% of my CPU.
I can leave it for hours, and it will not open.
I have tried the following:
Restarting the PC
and I tried opening the game in compatability mode for windows 2000.
I have Windows XP SP2, and I am on a network.
I have played numerous times before-- everyday for the past year. It's just decided to play up since this weekend.
I cant really give you any decent download sites I'm afraid... been a long time since I downloaded it... I'm in the UK anyway, so if you are in the States you probably wouldn't get the same sort of speeds as I do from places I do use (usually try to find host's in my country).
BTW, I get this exact same problem also sometimes... but I know for a fact that mine is caused by my dodgy DVD drive that I need to replace. It seems to struggle reading my BF2 discs (Vanilla or SF) sometimes, completely random and a bit weird really.
It matters not what letters or numbers come before my name, I'll always be 1stMIP.
