It's happened to at least once a night that I'm on POE2. I don't seem to remember it happening before vanilla 1.4, but I think POE2 was only out for about a week before 1.4. I'm assuming 1.4's the culprit, but I could be mistaken.
Been happening to me a lot over the last week....especially on Fallen. When POE first came out this didn't happen. SO I'm gonna see if reinstalling the full 1.4 patch(did incremental initially) and POE again has any impact.
It started happening to me originally on vanilla, and I haven't upgraded to 1.4 yet.
There's really two possibilities here, but we probably only see one due to everyone having the same problem.
First: 1.4 is curropt in some way, and crashes to desktop when certain files are loaded.
Second: Concidering BF2's resource usage, it could very well possibly be that with POE's extensive real-time environment (which we didn't see as much of in BF2) our PC's are acting, in some alien fashion, very weird towards the game itself.
To test the second theory, I'd probably ask everyone to make sure all background programs are closed while playing POE2. Check for hidden programs in the Processes menu of the Task Manager to make sure that nothing that shouldn't be running isn't. If this test produces the same results, and I wanted to move further in my research, I'd ask people to play the game a few times in safe-mode with networking to see if the problem still persists. If so, then it's the game itself, if not, then it's the game taking entirely too many resources.
It'd be a good idea to test, but I'm leaning more towards the game itself than all of these PC's not being able to handle the game.

To all but me is the look given but never received. My heart sinks faster and faster every time I look into them, yet I do not understand their controling power on my soul. - W11114m W45h1n670n
I'm not sure if it's happening on any particular map, but I do know it's happening on a regular basis, at least once everytime I play the game. i'll double check my taskmgr and see if anything that isn't supposed to be running isn't, but I'm pretty sure there won't be anything out of the ordinary.
happened to me tonight...happened a couple of times previous. I've got the full 1.3 patch AND I'm working from a fresh install of windows and BF2 etc.
I know that Lucky Shot CTD'd twice in a row and More Gooder did once. I did once last night as well. It seems to be infectious.
War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling that thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety is a miserable creature, who has no chance at being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself. -- John Stuart Mill--
