Default Can't open PR, stops at PR logo rectangle

I know that there was somewhere written about that problem but can't find it xD

So it's not my problem but my friends. He has windows 7, before it he had VISTA and everything worked fine, but now when he doubleclicks PR icon a ractangle shows up with PR logo and nothing happens and after about 1 minutes it closes.

Any ideas?

Run both BF2.exe and PR.exe in "always run as administrator". And make sure to run BF2.exe in Windows XP SP3 compatibility mode.

Hope this helps.

Change the short cut target to:

"***\EA GAMES\Battlefield 2\mods\pr\pr.exe" +fullscreen 1

you can also try +fullscreen 0, but make sure it is outside of the "" marks and leave the path to pr.exe the same (don't copy the *** !!!)

Hope it helps you.

Okay right click on the PR icon and go to properties.

Next click on the compatibility tab. Check the boxes for disable visual themes and disable desktop composition.

Now click apply, ok, and then try starting the game.



In Game Name

Im no expert but when this happened to me I read deleting profiles under my docs/battlefield2 worked. It worked.. Something to do with the display resolution line in any of video.con files /profiles that prevents startup... typical dodgy BF2 coding..

GFX card with DDR Memory is a scam. GDDR only.

C:\Users\YOURUSER\Documents\Battlefield 2\Profiles\Default

Open video.con with notepad.

Go to the line VideoSettings.setResolutionYOURxRESOLUTION@YOURREF RESHRATE

Change it so it says VideoSettings.setResolution 800x600@60Hz

This fixed the problem for me, hope it helps.

A journalist, interviewing a US marines sniper, asked what he felt when he shot a terrorist.

The sniper shrugged, and replied. "Recoil."

This is the usual problem with a fresh windows install. Try it.
