Default Battlefield 2 1.5 Alt Tab Crash

For some reason after installing BF2 1.5, the game will, once alt-tabbed, never reappear. It will come back up and I see the cursor and a black screen. If I start the task manager, BF2 will immediately crash. I have absolutely no issues with BF2 1.41.

Does anyone else have this issue?

I am on Vista with an ATI Radeon HD3870 GPU, Catalyst 9.8 drivers.


Edit: I found the problem. If there is any anti-aliasing on, it will crash. When anti-aliasing is set to "Off" in video.con, there is no crash. Possibly this is a Catalyst issue.

I can confirm this bug, alt tabbing crashes bf2 if any anti-alias mode is selected.

switching anti-alias to off solves the problem

Not a ATi user though, NVIDIA GTS 8800 512mb. Vista 64bit

I've this problem even with Windows 7 / BF2 1.41.
Going to the main menu before alt-tab works for me!

Sure hope it's just some people who experience this, 'cause frankly, it's completely fubar. If AA is on, alt+tabs doesn't work in 1.5? How about if I play with 1024x768 resolution my mic won't work or what?

*shakes head at amateur game company*
