bf2 crashes
 
i got a barebone kit with a nvidia 6600 gt and 1gb of corsair ram. when playing the game it randomly crashes most of the time just the game but sometimes the whole cpu. The thing is i'll go a whole 8 hours without a crash like yesterday and then today it crashed like 5 times until i was so pissed off i couldn't play anymore. i dont have a clue how to fix this. is it overheating, bad video card?

1: what is your system specs
2: what is your video card driver
3: does your system crash in anything else?
4: what are your temps like?
5: what version of BF2 is it?

Staz 30th January, 2006 06:19 PM

Download motherboard monitor, then run a stress test like super pi and check out what your temps and voltages are like. These test do not stress the video card, so if it is still crashing you can rule that out.

Are you useing the PSU that came with the bare bones kit?

Rhodesy@uk 30th January, 2006 08:56 PM

sounds like it needs patching as it used to crash on me before we got updated patch. plus the newer nvidia drivers have some fixes in for bf2 i think

bonesaw 30th January, 2006 09:15 PM

i got the newest drivers, version of bf2 and my temp are alway about 40 c when it crashes. thats what leads to to think that something in the bios is set up stupid or some kind of safety thing. and it doesnt crash while doing anything else like: half life 2 or fear

aghastpumpkin 30th January, 2006 09:19 PM

Make sure you close down ALL programs before running BF2. I get crashes even when I just leave Firefox open, it is an extreme memory hog.

Doodar 31st January, 2006 08:52 AM

When it crashes are you playing on larger servers? Does it not crash on 32 player servers and crash on 50 or 64 player servers?

I've had BF2 crash on larger capacity servers when they were full. Not sure why, just figured it has something to do with the netcode and my older XP2400 machine not being able to keep up with the data flow.

At some point, EA needs to stand up, admit that their coding has been sub-par to say the least, and do something pro-active, in turning BattleField 2 into the game it should have been, and fixing it.

Every time they change something they make the bloody thing worse, and this has to end very quickly...

robbie 1st February, 2006 03:41 PM

Do a Scandisk and Defrag on your drive. That should help.

Battlefield 2 has to be the most buggy game I've played. Frequently the graphics go very wrong. This isn't my video card, as my video card is fine with other, newer games.
It's just very very buggy.:rolleyes:
When it works, it's amazing though.

bonesaw 1st February, 2006 08:33 PM

it is amazing

Pitch 1st February, 2006 08:48 PM

And People wonder why I hate it. :rolleyes:

bonesaw 7th February, 2006 12:43 AM

i just got a new hard drive and got all of the patchs-updates-drivers and battlefield still crashes. only this time it seems like the crashes are really clean and it only crashes to desktop no the whole cpu. does any one got any thing to help me with this

bonesaw 7th February, 2006 08:09 AM

i put everything possible on low or off and yet it still crashes. i am a few days away from lighting this computer on fire.

If the foundations are not right, all than follows can only be flawed. The ship may have already left the docks...

dsio 7th February, 2006 09:49 AM

Well thats just the thing. I DON'T think the foundations are anything to do with a first person shooter. I think they have borrowed the engine from Madden NFL, and mixed it with the environmental rendering engine of Need For Speed: Underground.

Daniel ~ 7th February, 2006 11:59 AM

Everything has a foundation. I know nothing about the situation, other than what you and others have said. if every fix worsens the situation, then one must ask if the basic situation or code is flawed in such a way as to make correction impossible.

bonesaw 9th February, 2006 12:17 AM

now i changed video cards and still get crashes. i almost have nothing left to do that i can think of.

devilmyarse 9th February, 2006 12:26 AM

Just accept that the game crashes. It's a buggy game. Keep everything at low. Try lowering your screen resolution.

Find out if it crashes on 64 player maps but not 32 or 16, if you can find that out then we might know why it's crashing.

BF2 annoys the hell out of me most of the time, but i play it for my friends.

Finetobe 11th February, 2006 12:25 AM

sometimes it help to set pagefile from 1500 to 2500/3000 mb when you have 1 gb of memory.

the game crash when you run out of memory and no error i windows about it.

bonesaw 11th February, 2006 11:17 AM

ok we'll see

bonesaw 15th February, 2006 04:04 AM

ok that did nothing this problem is starting to look like something really small and overlooked because i tried all of the big things and they are all fine or what i mean is i think it is something with my computer but something that is reall easy to fix but i just cant find it and it crashes no matter what size the server.

csrichter 15th February, 2006 06:39 AM

I have never had probs with BF2 or BF2SF. I think it's a great game.

dsio 15th February, 2006 06:48 AM

Yea, some people do find it just works perfectly for them and wonder what we're all on about. It is much due to BF2 taking a liking to your system or not. Just out of interest, what is your setup mate?

Welcome to AOA by the way :D

bonesaw 17th February, 2006 12:12 AM

should i change mother boards or take my cpu to a repair shop?

Favu 17th February, 2006 12:27 AM

You could try the new patch, that might make things work decently for you. :]

bonesaw 17th February, 2006 07:06 AM

i got all the easy **** down its just things like levels and how to set up things in the bios. so does that or will it make a difference if i change the mother board or take it to a repair shop thanks for the help all

Staz 17th February, 2006 04:00 PM

Make sure your AGP apeture is set to atleast 128. 256 would be better since you have 1 Gig of RAM.

bonesaw 17th February, 2006 09:04 PM

i'll try that right now thanks but the card itself only has 128 should i still put it up to 256? and would buying another 1gb stick help the situation?

aghastpumpkin 17th February, 2006 10:18 PM

One bug I've found which causes in-definate crashes is having your connection set to T1/Lan when trying to play online games.

bonesaw 18th February, 2006 12:22 AM

yea i saw that the other day

Redroar 18th February, 2006 05:42 AM

AGP aperture is not the onboard video memory. It is the amount of your standard RAM (of which you have 1 gb) that is reserved to act as a secondary video RAM if the onboard video memory is insufficient.

bonesaw 19th February, 2006 05:17 AM

ok i did that and it might have ran better but it still crashed. but this were i think the problem is, in the bios. i dont think they set up anything in my mobo,. if you have any more suggestions i will try them thanks for the help.

dsio 19th February, 2006 05:26 AM

It is very unlikely to be your BIOS mate. Are you using the 1.20 patch for BF2?

csrichter 19th February, 2006 07:10 PM

I run this game on two systems. a P4 northwood with 1Gig of hyper-x and a FX5950, and an A64 with 2 gig mushkin with a X800 pro. One thing I have noticed is if your router ports are not set up correctly it causes long load times. I've just been setting it to DMZ lately.

bonesaw 19th February, 2006 11:36 PM

yea i got the patch i cant think of anything that i haven't done but get a new computer

bonesaw 20th February, 2006 05:14 AM

could it be a connection problem? i got a router shoukld i plug into the real line would that have anyhting to do with the crashes?

Corn 20th February, 2006 07:36 PM

BF2 is really sensitive to overclocks and overheats CPU and/or graphics cards easily.
Therefore I recomend to try and run the game with the case open and perhaps a fan blowing towards the CPU/GFX card to see if it helps.

Having terrain on LOW will result in black textures on the terrain on some places (seen this on two different computers with NVIDIA cards), MEDIUM works ok.
64 players servers are alot more "buggy" then 32 players servers.
I do agree that the newer pathes introduce more bugs and they also tend to hog more memory. Patch 1.03 was playable with 512meg RAM with most of the settings on LOW/OFF. 1.12 and 1.2 are not.

bonesaw 22nd February, 2006 08:29 PM

the problem seems to be fixed i updated my bios and unpluged this temperature interface thing i had and no crashes. the bios update said it fixed a memory leak problem so it makes sense that it works now.
