Welcome to TSG!

This any help?
Quote:
OCCT and prime95 stable for like 13 hrs (a64 3000 venice). Memtest stable overnight.
This rig has been rock solid except for this game but with any BF launch I almost expect a huge amount of bugs. I've read several posts on this memory.dll error so far but no solutions.

Since this game looks to be using pretty much the same exact engine as BF 2 you would think it would be a mature stable engine by now. I guess not.

UPDATE: I just cleared out my temp directory ("C:\Documents and Settings\username\Local Settings\Temp") and it works now. Weird. I've only had one other game that ever gave me issues with the temp dir and that was crimson skies from way back.
Anyways, seems to run fine under 1600X1200 now.

UPDATE 2: Ok that wasn't it. As long as I don't start a single player on Cerbere right after the game first loads I'm fine. But if I pick that map first then it always crashes with a memory.dll error. I can reproduce it everytime. If I load a different map first then go back to Cerbere it works fine. Yeah Buggy as hell like I said before.
Taken from here.. post # 23 ;http://www.quartertothree.com/game-t...ad.php?t=30247

Also a recommendation to set your resolution to one the game supports.. ??? Still looking.

Also.. Did you download it or get the CD?

It seems many blame a poor installer that comes with the downloaded ones.. (from EA or even the Demo)

Wow, the more I read the more people I see with the same error...
Some just give up... Sorry, but I haven't found a definite solve for this yet..
One guy said the original worked but as soon as it's patched the error shows..

???? I'm lost... ???

Solution. Sortof
Hey guys, I have been I think through every forum on the net dealing with this game and battlefield 2142 crashing. I have tried everything from deleting folders, registry entries, reinstalling, OS reinstall, and bug fixes. The customers PC I had this problem with was on a 3800X2 dual core athlon system with 1GB of memory and a 7600GT video card. The two errors I was having was first, the game just flat out was not starting, just booting for a bit and then back to desktop. The other error I would get was some stupid Sanity Memory error which would happen half way through booting into a map which didn't make any sense because the memory was good. I found a solution. I installed windows 2000 pro instead of windows XP. After installing windows 2000 all errors I once had with this game were non existent. I installed the games and the current packages and everything just worked. Not sure why this works with windows 2000 for me and not XP. Thought I let everyone know.
