    Posting for a friend.

    System Specs:
    Intel P3 600MHz
    256 Ram
    GeForce 2
    Audigy Soundcard
    6x DVDrom
    40x CDRW
    Windows XP Pro

    Problem

    When executing game, splash screen will appear, then crash. No error provided. Tried all compatibility modes and no correction for problem. Have tried with and without patch and no correction. Have also tried both cd drives, still have problem.

    Thanks for any help.

    :cool:

    Same thing happens to my BF1942 every once in a while for no apparent reason. I just run the 1.2 patch every time it happens and it fixes it. Computers are Stupid

    are you guys using any kind of refresh rate fix?? If you are disable it because BF1942 won't work if one is being used. So disable or delete the refresh rate fix and then reinstall BF1942 and then apply the patch.

    Should work fine then. I had the same problem and found that on the EA suppport site.

    bf runs fine with refresh rate fixes. you just have to go to videodefault.con and change renderer.allowAllRefreshRates from 0 to 1. so it should be:

    "renderer.allowAllRefreshRates 1"

    Anyone know if the Road to Rome expansion is out yet, or when it will be released... no dates on their website.
