i'm a very grumpy davi.
i woke up ready to play, but for some reason now when i try to open the open the game i just get the splash image and then it disappears....game won't even launch. I guess i have to wait for dice to make a fix, which i'm guessing could take weeks.
thank god i played overnight delievery and $70 total for a days worth of gaming.

so what the servers are down?
dice to fix"? whas that?

davi- I had a similar problem with the original BF1942, and I fixed it by repairing winxp, just putting the system cd in and letting it replace some corrupted dll's and such. don't know if it's the same problem, but it may be worth a shot...

I believe you have to do something similar to the following:
Open the config file and set forcerefreshrate to opposite of what it is now..
Worked in the original battelefield when people had that problem.
In the file: VideoDefault.con
Change that to 1 and see if that helps.
You find the file in this dir: \Battlefield Vietnam\Mods\BfVietnam\settings\

swoop that's a totally different problem.
cotron, i'll give it a shot
March 17th, 2004, 07:14 PM
Just because i had the same problem with splash just showing up and then nothing, and doing the above fixed it ;)
Hope you get it working again :D
March 17th, 2004, 09:03 PM
i reinstalled xp...didn't work.
and swoop, i've already tried that suggestion :|
March 18th, 2004, 04:12 AM
Sounds wierd that you can play one day and then .. nothing :(
Hope you get it fixed dude.. only think left i can think if might be driver change or something in that effect ;)
March 18th, 2004, 04:47 AM
i've downloaded the new driver(ati)...even installed the nvidia drivers...
March 19th, 2004, 03:26 AM
doh! worth a shot... sorry mang
March 19th, 2004, 07:31 AM
it's really wierd.. you just get the splash and then desktop drop ?
Never seen that problem in any game exept when it was the forcerefreshrate setting :(

i fucking love it! i had to upgrade my machine just for this game.. i wanted to experience it in all of its glory..
it does however have its fair share of terminal showstopper bugs.. i dont know anyone who can play for more than an houre without having to restart or reconnect due to weird punkbuster bullshit.
Davi- hit the BF forums man.. im sure someone else out there has the same problems as you..
we should orginize an online match with the locals.
March 22nd, 2004, 03:07 PM
i went to the forums and bitched. nothing been done yet.
others have the same problem, but ea have yet to find the issue...sigh
i've never had a problem like this before either.
anyways. if you guys want to play together, i strongly suggest reading my XFIRE post, and then connecting that way.
March 22nd, 2004, 04:43 PM
EA loves to shove projects out the door full of bugs. isnt it great?

Davi: i have never had any proplems with vietnam, propibly becouse i have a GeForce4 Ti 4200 with latest drivers.
