Default PR closing when trying to connect to server :(

Yo, PR is just closing whenever I try join a multiplayer server.

It just closes to desktop with no error message or anything, the weird thing is that I can create an offline server myself and join the map no problem...

Any ideas?

PS this is a brand new gaming rig and i've transfered PR via an external USB straight onto it
I used to run this on my Vista laptop (transfered onto an XP operating system now)

System specs:

ATI Radeon HD4850 1gb
AMD PHENOM II X2 545 3.00ghz
4gigs of ram
Windows xp

There might be some complication trying to transfer a Vista-installed program to XP. If you have the opportunity try to make a fresh install of PR on your XP machine.

Also you could try to see if your firewall is trying to block the program??

I'm just guessing here though.

Peace is that brief glorious moment in history when everybody stands around reloading

Hi thanks for the reply, tried turning off firewall - no joy

I also did a full re-install of BF2 from disk onto system, now i have the same problem with that... i double click on the bf2 icon to start it and it gets the black loading screen for like 3 seconds, then crashess to desktop immediatley with no error message or anything...

This is seriously doing my head in, this is a brand new system and all I wanna do is get back onto PR

Any other help would be very welcome

I had the same problem, did you try to disable EAX in audio options? That helped for me.

Well since i couldn't enter the game at all - no

However i searched computer for all BF2 related files and deleted, then reinstalled and bf2 opens fine... i think it may have been the external HD i had left plugged in by accident conflicting with the install

Installing patches/PR right now, hope this works.

Will update if it does

Yeah all is working now, must have been moving vista installed version straight onto XP creating issues.
Also I left external HD left plugged in after installing bf2 again for the first time which probably conflicted with the installation causing more problems.

In short I am an idiot
