Default [Solved] PC freezes when I join a Mumble server (Crossfire issue)

Hi, all -

The facts:

Win7 64 pro
i7 2600
16Gb 1333Mhz RAM
2x6970 2Gb

Running BF2 via Steam

Everything installed and running as Admin

All drivers (as far as I can tell) up to date

The problem:

I can join and play on a non-Mumble server with no problems, whether or not I have Mumble running.

If I join a Mumble server, it will freeze my PC completely during the countdown/at squad assign menu. The only way to get out is a hard reset of the PC. Again, whether or not I am running Mumble does not matter.

I have been testing this all last night and this morning, and the only common denominator I can find is that the server I am trying to join is a Mumble server.

Thank you for any thoughts you may have on this issue.

Odd thing indeed. I assume you applied this fix since you're able to see and join servers?

If you have original bf2.exe from Steam try restoring it and see if it works now. If it does, see what happens with mumble enabled servers.

Welcome to forums.

I should have mentioned, here's a timeline of events:

- All works fine
- PR starts to freeze my PC
- Test various configurations to isolate issue
- Start to get "no servers" issue
- Replace .exe
- Servers found, issue remains
- I determine that Mumble servers are the problem

I do not have the original Steam .exe, unfortunately. Bad move on my part, but doing a full re-install is no problem. I guess that's what I'll try next.

Thanks for the reply!

Do you have any other voip software running in background? Steam app and overlay, xfire, teamspeak? If any, shut them down / all of them having just PR running and see if same thing happens again.

What is your internet connection speed? Checked if any ports are blocked, have any ISP related issues?

All overlays disabled, clan TS3 running, no other apps. Never had a problem before, but who knows...

I'm just loathe to keep trying as I'd like to avoid all of these hard resets.

50Mbit connection, no problems with ISP (Speedtest/Pingtest both return excellent results).

Tested on every server or only few particulars? Some users reported problems with NWA and TG servers, but its not freezing just loosing connection, and reason is still unknown.

If it happens on all servers for you then problem must be on your side. If nothing that you did is fixing it, only thing left is reinstall. Make sure you delete profile folder in My Documents>Battlefield 2 and do registry cleanup.

I'm sorry I cant be of more help, but this is first time I see this kind of problem and cant see the solution. You can wait for others look at it, but doubt any will have anything to say beyond usuals, which you already tried.

Thanks, I appreciate the prompt attention. I think I'll just do full re-install tomorrow.

edit: Usually, the Mumble server was a PRTA server.

Try disabling bf2 voip by going to sound settings in game. Sounds weird but sometimes weird things happen, like this one, and we must look for same solutions.

Update -

I have re-installed everything and am still experiencing this problem. PC freezes at squad assign screen, hard reset necessary.

Grey, where are we now?

Full reinstall of BF2 steam version and a clean reinstall of PR?
Did you apply the retail .exe patch?
Did you do a MD5 checksum on your PR installation files?

The user account you use to play PR is admin rights or something less?

What ATI drivers version are you using?

Did you start Vanilla BF2 one time login and join a Multiplayer game?

Did you clear out the shaders folder after your fresh reinstall?

GO to the BF2.exe file, Try BF2 as XP SP3 compatibility, disable desktop composition, disable visual themes.

Try running PR.exe as Try BF2 as XP SP3 compatibility, disable desktop composition, disable visual themes.

Then start PR.

IF still freeze/crash, try switching to windowed mode.
