  • Processor?

    Will Battlefield 2 play on a Pentium M 2.13Ghz proccessor? When I try to load the demo the screen goes black then back to the desktop.

        Re: Processor?

        Hey All, I'm new to TG (Last Week)
        i went out and bought battlefield 2 today, and i was reading
        throught the manual and it says "An outdated video or sound driver can lead to slow and choppy gameplay, or in some cases prevent the game running at all".
        I am getting a new computer in 2 days and it doesn't have a sound card,
        i was wondering
        a) will BF2 run without a sound card (or a generic one)

        and b) if it will, will it run on these specs:

        AMD Athlon 64 939 X2 4400
        Gigabyte 256mb Geforce 7800GTX VIVO PCI-E
        2GB Of RAM
        120+ GB Hard drive

        Thanks a heap i am kind of lost when it comes to computers
        any help would be appreciated

          Welcome guys, make sure you check out the Battlefield 2 - Official Rules, Announcements & SOPs http://www.tacticalgamer.com/forumdisplay.php?f=183 Good question about the sound card, I noticed this weekend I am using a generic sound card also. I do believe it slows the processor down, not 100% sure though.

            Nice machine, Jackal...do you know which motherboard you'll be using? That'll tell us more about the sound. In any case, odds are you'll be just fine.

              i don't have a soundcard at all and it works fine on software setting. there are many threads about the whole "goes black/quits to desktop" problem. EA themselves have a pretty comprehensive support page i would recommend

                It's not going to run on that pile, you should upgrade.

                ARE YOU SERIOUS? Hell yeah it will run, and not only will it run, it's going to run circles around most other systems! You should be able to run 1600x1200 with 4xAA and high AF.

                I bow to your system :D

                    The Motherboard is a gigabyte k8nf-9

                    don't ask me what that means

                      Well, considering how high-end the rest of your system is, I'm a little surprised at that choice, but it's certainly not going to cause you any problems (it's a good board, simply not "top of the line"). It uses a popular chip (Realtek ALC850) for 8-channel audio; I don't think you'll have any trouble at all running BF2 with it.

                          Audigy 2 Zs. It's a great card and you can get them for $70 or so from places like Newegg.com

                            First, let me apologize if I sound pedantic. I'm not sure what level of computer knowledge you have, so I'll assume that you're just as intelligent, but just not as big a geek, as me ;)

                            One very popular choice for motherboards these days is the DFI LANParty series of boards. There are two versions you might want to consider: the SLI/dual-RAID version (called the "DFI LANParty NF4 SLI-DR") and (for about $50 less) the non-SLI/non-dual-RAID, version (called the "DFI LANParty UT NF4 ULTRA-D").

                            SLI is a technology that allows you to combine two graphics cards into a single unit, giving you essentially twice the graphics performance. Considering the video card you've chosen, you certainly won't need to use two cards any time soon, but this does give you an upgrade path other than buying a new graphics card at some point.

                            Dual-RAID allows you to have two separate disk arrays (as opposed to a single disk array on the non-dual-RAID board). A disk array is a combination of disks that function as a single disk. Depending on the combination and configuration you choose, you can enhance performance, storage capacity, and/or reliability (through redundancy).

                            Basically, it's a question of whether you want to invest the extra $50 on SLI and dual-RAID, or somewhere else. There are other things I'd suggest take priority. For one thing, I would suggest making sure that you have top-quality RAM. A good power supply is another worthy investment. Finally, don't forget about your monitor: it tends to be your biggest single purchase and the one that you have the greatest interaction with.

                            The DFI boards offer excellent overclocking capabilities, and I've heard good things about their reliability. If you prefer to go with a very tried-and-true brand, the ASUS A8N series are a very good alternative in my opinion.

                            One thing to remember, of course, is that adding things (like additional memory, or a separate sound card) is less complex and less expensive than replacing things. So, if in doubt, err on the side of buying a better essential component than adding a non-essential component. You might even choose to start with 1GB of RAM instead of 2GB if cost becomes a factor (doesn't sound like it is for you, though).
