  • Not launching anymore -- weird error.

    Pentium 4, 3.00 GHz
    2 GB DDR2 RAM
    Radeon x1650 (512 MB)

    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:

    Disk Cleanup
    Virus Scan
    Spyware Scan
    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.

    Any ideas?
    Do you need any extra information?

    Hm. I only get this error after I have installed a patch.

    Maybe the patch I got from the torrent website is dodgy.

    Anyone else know of any decent speeded downloads for the 1.4 full patch?

      The current patch is 1.41, not 1.4

      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.

        These guys are pretty good. I'm in North America and they are fast for me.
