Have this same problem.Never even had the game running yet. Tried all fixes, tried loading the latest patch, it won't load. Don't think I will ever buy a EA Games game again! You would think that they would at least try to post a fix on their website.

You know (I'm another person on this list another unregistered but I'm totaly and completely seperate from the others ;) ) it's funny how my bf1942 actually ran, but it would crash every 40 mins or so, I started going over things that might improve my game's performance and now it gets stuck here in the loading screen! Joy!

To be more specific, what happens to me personally is the game just instantly closes, leaving the resolution @ the game resolution and not resetting to my desktop one. Happens to me around the same %'s you guys get to.

Same thing happens with my system as well. I can usually play a game, but occasionally a map will freeze during loading at around 8% like you guys said. It's frustrating beyond belief. I can't see any pattern either. However, it is more likely to occur during a single player instant battle. I've seen it happen when loading multiplayer games as well. There must be a fix to this. I've tried everything I've seen in forums, EA Tech Support, and my own ideas. I'd appreciate any help!:(

I have a dodgy stick of ram, whenever it's in my machine it crashes during map-load.

I too am having the exact same problem (crashing to desktop after about 5% map download).

I just installed Win2000. The game worked fine when XP was installed. I suspect it is my video drivers, but since my card is relatively old, i can't find any more recent drivers.

I have an AOpen PA256 MX (GeForce2 32-mb)

EA must be able to figure this out. Dont give up all. This game is wicked !!!!

Hi all,

I may have figured out everyone's problems (hopefully).
Here's what i did.

1) installed the new NVIDIA driver (not from your video card manufacturer)
http://www.nvidia.com/content/drivers/drivers.asp

I also did this (but i suspect had no effect)
1) installed VIA 4-in-1 driver (chipset update for motherboard)
2) installed DirectX 9.0a

Not only did the game run....but i was also able to crank up the video details for above what they were before.

I'm running in Win2000.
AMD 1Gig
AOPEN PA256 Geforce2 MX

I originally posted on here earlier about a map loading problem and I think the problem was just my graphics card. Apparently EA recommends a 64 MB and I always thought 32 MB would be just fine. Well, I just got a new laptop and I was cringing when I put Battlefield on because I had heard a lot about laptops not running it well. However, it has a 64 MB card and the game runs like butter. Seems like the simplest solution is to upgrade your card if its only 32, but I know this same problem happens with superb systems so who knows. Maybe kick up the RAM to 768 or something? This game is so frustrating to get up and running, but certainly worth it. EA needs to get on the stick and patch the hell out of this game.

  • Varine Varine:
    Good luck to the hurricane path people. Is TH still in Houston?
  • Ghan Ghan:
    I think so
    +1
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Yeah we got nothing here did not even rain
  • Ghan Ghan:
    We could use some rain.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I am not complaining though Hurricanes are not fun I have been through alot of them
  • Blackveiled Blackveiled:
    I evacuated for it just incase since I live in La Porte pretty much right on the water (in Houston area). Didn't see anything. It's a good thing for me anyways.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    It's too bad that Blizzard messed up so terribly with Reforged.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Still has a 0.6 user metacritic score.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    (Out of 10)
  • Varine Varine:
    I haven't even tried it yet because everyone said it sucked. How do you get .6 out of ten?
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I am waiting for Dwarf Fortress to come out on Steam then I am on it.
  • Accname Accname:
    I play Dwarf Fortress from time to time.
  • Accname Accname:
    Its Okay.
  • Accname Accname:
    But the performance is sub-par. Does not seem to be well optimized.
  • Varine Varine:
    Is the Steam version coming with a graphical overlay or is it using the ASCII graphics still?
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Steam version has the graphical overlay.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Steam Version has graphics, a new interface and will be integrated in the steam mod stuff
  • Blackveiled Blackveiled:
    I didn't think WC3 Reforged was that bad. It pretty much did what it stated (to me at least), but then again I can care less about reforged campaigns and all that. I just care about gameplay.
  • Varine Varine:
    I think people were hoping for a resurgence in mod support. I have little interest in the actual game tbh
  • Varine Varine:
    Plus I know they added that Dota precedent clause where Blizzard can steal your shit which isn't cool.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    They sold Reforged to the community as primarily a huge graphical uplift with high res textures and redone cinematics.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    They even showed one of the redone cinematics at Blizzcon and that very cinematic wasn't even in the released game.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    So I think folks were angry about that.
  • Varine Varine:
    Didn't the backwards compatability have issues too?
  • Accname Accname:
    I never had any hopes for that. Blizzard is not the same company it was 10 years ago.
