sometimes in BF2 my gun goes "shiny" by this i mean it reflects the surrouning environment and looks as if it has a "mirrored" surface. i only get this on my primary weapon and pistol. while this problem is occuring i cannot look down the sights of my primary weapon instead i get a big black square which covers most of my screen, but i can look down the sights on my pistol.<br><br>
when i try and get a screenshot of this i get an error message stating that there isnt enough memory available to take the shot.<br><br>
My ATI drivers are up to date<br>
Load temp on VGA is 50C<br>
im using VF900<br><br>
Reinstalling is going to be the last thing i do because since i bought BF2 i have reinstalled over 30 times (i know my CD key by heart) due to issues with the game. I will reinstall if someone <b>knows</b> that it would fix this issue.<br><br>
Thx in advance.

try lowering your graphics settings, as you could be straining the card. Medium settings will/should definitley work on your card.

This also happens on Counter-Strike Source if your graphics are too high, or your dx level on the game is too high. Is there a way you can change your dx level higher/lower ? maybe in the config or something. I don't play bf, so i don't know where it would be..<br />
<br />
One of the requirments on bf2 i read just then is that you need a <br />
8x or faster CD/DVD drive.. Have you got that? because maybe if it isn't that fast, it could have problems running some parts of the game..or something<img src="/images/smilies/ninja.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Ninja" class="inlineimg" />

Maybe you are missing some DX3D**_**.dll's the reflections those games use are called 'shaders' so if your missing a DX file they will **** up

I would try downloading the newest version of DirectX from Microsoft. If you are missing a few shaders, this should but them back.
