battlefield 1942 crashing constantly

Postby crimsontide » Mon Sep 25, 2017 6:31 am

I remember playing this on a windows 7 computer without issues, however i have nonstop issues with this game, its a miracle if i can actually play an instant battle match. Every time i try loading a map it brings me to the desktop with a black window on the left side of my screen, forcing me to restart my computer. If im lucky to enough to load a map, i can play until i press esc to pause it, then it instantly crashes and freezes my computer every single time, i cannot pause it while playing or else it crashes. i've tried playing in compatibility mode with windows 98/me, windows xp service pack 2 and 3. But nothing is working. Is there anyway to fix this or am i out of luck? I also saw that changing the value in video options from 1 to 0 works, but i hate windowed mode, hopefully there is another way. Let me know please, thanks.

What's your current OS + game and desktop video configs?

I mention the video config because I remember many years ago, and it may well have been HL1 not 1942, where setting the game graphics settings exactly the same as the windows desktop's fixed a problem. Its a long shot and its a long distance memory, but it may help with a graphics freeze up issue, especially as you stated that the game works OK within a window.

Search through some posts on here. I think ICQ and a few others have posted issues/fixes on here. I haven't used win10 myself.

Ey Crimsontide! (and hi Vicar!!!! how u doing sir?!) 8-)

Hows it going now? I hate win10 also thats why i mostly game in linux. But thats besides the point.

Uuuh... windows 10. I get the idea that it has something to do with DirectPlay.

Check this out here and good luck!
