Hi!
I got a problem, which is starting to irritate me much. When I start up BF1942 and enter the main menu there are no text in the boxes in the menu but if I move my mouse over to one of the boxes the text appears. But the thing that realy is anoying is that the text is missing in the server list so I have no chance of knowing which server i'm logging into.
I served the net for weeks now but nobody seems to have the same problem. The thing is that when I bought the game it worked perfectly. I think it might happend when I installed XP or a new driver for my Video card but I honestly can't remember.
The game works fine in the game.
Please help me.

My computer is:
AMD ATHLON(TM) PROCESSOR
1 Ghz 256 mb ram
Nvidia geforce fx 5200

I know my hardware isn't the greatest but I know it worked before so please no comments of things I already know:)

P.S. I tried the trick with changing 1 to 0 in the videodefault.con file under renderer.allowAllRefreshRates so that's not the problem. PLEASE HELP

I already tried all that stuff. I even tried with different old drivers for my video card but nothing helps.

Hi... I upgraded the chipset drivers but it didn't realy help but I finally solved the problem. It turned out that the new Nvidia drivers screw up the battlefield menu so I had to go all the way back to a 56.xx driver. Pretty lame by Nvidia or EA. Some one should have made a fix for that.

Thanx anyway.
Great forum.

Old version is the only solution it seems

U can get the older versions on www.nvidia.com
Use the menu to select card, type, os and then look at Archive option below in screen.
The 56.xx is the best to use and it realy seems to be the only solution :/
I tried about everything else that makes sence and none worked...
OS Windows 98SE
NVidia MX 440
