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

    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.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    It happens in corporations. They just absorb the companies they buy and it is not about the love of making awesome games it is how much money can we make with the least amount of cost.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Blizzard is watered down now hopefully they can pull it together
  • The Helper The Helper:
    they got a server engineer job opening :)
