I'd delete everything BF2/PR and start from scratch. Sounds like a bad install. Maybe Melon can add someting to help out. Try to PM him.

Ok well give us an idea of your problem pig. I'll just assume this is what you've got going on so far. You install BF2 from the original CD. You then patch up to 1.5, correct? Then before installing PR you try and run BF2 vanilla and it crashes out before you hit the intro videos?

Maybe try going to the BF2 install folder and renaming the .bik movie files to .bak. Maybe the resolution change is causing the game to crash?

You should only need to launch BF2 before installing PR, but I dont know if that is even a requirement post 1.0. I'd suggest looking around the PR forums though, that'd be your best bet to finding a straight answer.

Also, great to see you around man, I miss playing with you.

try run in windowed
On your desktop right click on the battlefield 2 icon and click properties.
Under the shortcut tab in the "Target" it shows the shortcut path in "...." and is followed by +menu 1 +fullscreen 1.
Change the +fullscreen 1 to +fullscreen 0.

Also, install PR anyway. it runs separate to BF2.

Hi Pigfarmer, I seen a similar issue as there are no servers to register a new player you can try this:

Uninstall all previous BF2 installs.
On the 1 Tb HDD, create a folder called BF2, then:

1. Install BF2 Complete to that location, close installer and return to desktop (do not run BF2)

2. Download this file and install it:
http://largedownloads.ea.com/pub/patches/BF2/1.41/BF2_Patch_1.41.exe

3. Run BF2, Black screen will show.

4. Ctrl, Alt Delete, run task manager... close BF2.exe

5. Get this file and install:
http://www.fileplanet.com/204626/download/Battlefield-2-Patch-v1.5

6. Close all prompts after you complete step 5, return to desktop.

7. Run dxdiag command (although not needed for 64bit win 7 os, you are getting a bf2 1.4 build dxRender error implying you don't have step 5 complete) ensure there are no Sound, Display, Input issues... If there are, check device drivers for updates from here: http://www.asus.com/uk/Motherboards/SABERTOOTH_990FX/HelpDesk_Download/

8. All good and well open BF2 and wait for black screen to go an (this may take some time)show the login box, you cannot login as there are no login servers for a relic of the past called Gamespy: http://www.gamespy.com/ that BF2 relied on for user logins and server activity/cheat logs.

8a. Click Manage accounts, Create account and Accept terms.... Click Single player and enter a name, click next. Spalsh screen willl show, either play single player or:

9. close BF2.

10. Install BF2Reality from here: http://www.realitymod.com/ ... follow this guide for PR2 install:
http://www.realitymod.com/forum/f27-pr-bf2-support/99834-project-reality-bf2-installation-guide.html

You mentioned a black screen when you launch. My screen goes black for about 30 seconds sometimes before PR loads. Are you waiting long enough for the game to load? Just a thought.
