    bf2 on windows 8

    Hi guys, sorry if this isn't the place to ask this, but i just tried installing bf2 off the cd version onto my windows 8.1 system, and im getting the dreaded black screen crash on start up. can anyone confirm that installing this game off the cds no longer works on windows 8, or am i experiencing a different problem?

    Re: bf2 on windows 8

    It's a different problem. I'm running on Windows 8.1 off of the BF2 disk.

    Try looking at this thread to see if it's any of them: http://bfewaw.com/showthread.php?t=272279

    Edit: Also, I didn't tweak anything, such as running it in XP compatibility mode or something.

    Re: bf2 on windows 8

    thanks for the help, i just reinstalled it and it did run right away. i'm instlling the patches for it now so hopefully they dont screw it up.

    edit. tried running it after the 1.41 patch was installed, and it now crashes right away upon start up

    edit2 - installed the 1.5 patch right after, works again...

    BF2 is listed as incompatible with 8.1 though not 8. I forget where I saw that. I have 8.1 and use compatibility mode because I kept getting some error about the resolution.
