BF2 not for Vista?


Recommended Posts

I wouldn't go that far. Have you tried installing it on a different vista computer, with better specifications? This may be difficult to achieve, but if you can it would tell you more. Also, I notice that nowhere on this page you have specified what exactly your system specifications are. Like more than one person said before, your machine may just not cut it. Sure, BF2 is more than a few years old. But it sure packs a punch. If you can't get newer equipment, try disabling Windows Aero, Windows Sidebar, and running BF2 in the crappiest settings possible. Also, while I doubt it will help, DICE released a Patch 1.50 fix that's supposed to allow you to Alt+Tab without crashing. May very well help you out. Good luck, again, again. Maybe I should just stop saying this... :P

I manage to run BF2 and Special Forces on Vista 32-bit Home Premium with no issues whatsoever. I never had any issues prior to installing the latest patch, and it's installed to the default directory running in NON-ADMIN Mode.... So honestly, it's not a Vista issue, something's up with your installation or rig.

Windows Vista, the most annoying computer experience ever.


Your specs should be more than enough to play BF2... Try logging in as another user, almost all of my games can't be played on my old user account for some reason.
