BFBC2 crash when starting

Postby Mort » Fri Oct 08, 2010 6:38 pm

My BC2 is crashing back to desktop about 3 seconds into the first intro screen (the overhead b+w movie). Dunno why yet.

I just upgraded Robyns computer and took the opportunity to get myself a slightly faster graphics card (a factory OC version of what I had) so I'm thinking it's most likely something to do with the change in hardware not being seen in a BC2 cache or something.

I sometimes get "Failed to start Battlefield Bad Company 2" and it often tries to "download pre-order beta".
I'd suggest going into steam and clicking play, then choosing the setup options instead of play game when the pop-up appears.

I don't get a pop-up for setup options. When I click play it just launches into the game... and then ctd

I've tried renaming the bfbc2 docs folder to create a new folder with default settings but still no-go.

Might try reinstalling video drivers. Maybe there's a bug in the latest version.

Most odd. Didn't really do much but tried (yet another) reboot and it started with a new config. Copied the old config back and it still worked. nfi.
