BF2: This is getting annoying...

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Note: This problem is on my families DELL, not the one listed in profile.

Today, I tryed playing BF2 and it crashed right before i got in the game twice, and three or four times I got into the game but my mouse was stuck in the middle of the screen. Everything else was fine, sounds, video, I could see the action through the map where you select a spawn point but my mouse was stcuk in the middle and I couldn't leave that spot. Pressing escape wouldn't take me to the main menue, pressing enter didn't clear the map out of the way. It happened every time I would get into a game. so I never got to play any games.

This is the screen I'm talking about just for referance:

This isn't my picture (found it on a site) but basicly this is where my game stops.

What are the specs for the machine you are talking about? Does it have a built in video card? What kind of mouse? etc.

i think he just installed it on that dell, he made another thread about this i think it has something to do with the most recent patch.

The Dell is only a few months old.
P4 3.0GHz
RADEON X300
512MB (brother is getting another 512MB for it soon)
Integrated audio
Scroll mouse

And as far as that other thread metal kobra, My computer isn't up and running right now (waiting for video card to come this week, then it'll be ok) so I installed BF2 on our Dell for the time being. once my computer is up and running, I'll uninstall the game from the Dell. But my bro is going to by the game to use for it, so hopefully there won't be any problems.

Have you checked the video settings in the game and made sure that they are not set too high? Built in cards have a very hard time with newer games. Plus the 512 memory is probably shared which makes it even harder for the computer to run the game. Just in case it is a problem with the new patch try uninstalling the game and then do a fresh install and try it with patch 1.12. One other thing, mine did something like that and I had to uninstall vista pack from my computer to get it to stop. May not be the same problem, mine was because another program was conflicting with vista pack and BF2.

This happened to me every time I would try to play BF2, and that is why I sold it.

Well I gave single player a try to see if the same problem came up with the frozen mouse and keys, and the same thing came up. So I'm just going to reinstall and hopefully that takes the problem away.

reinstalling should do the trick

That is where the game lags the most when you dont have enough ram. Have you tried letting it sit for a minute or so?
