Crash When I try to join a server
« on: 04-04-2018, 17:04:29 »
Hi all,

So I use to play FH.7 and never had a computer good enough for FH2.  No I have a I5 6500 ge750 16gb ram ddr4; it should be good enough.  I have fresh install of Windows 10 and updated drivers; the works [3.9x].

I get the whole game installed it crashes every time I try to join the server, insta-crash.
I've tried windowed mode, doesn't work.  What can I do?

*I've tried comparability mode for Windows 7 and XP service pack 3 also.  I've tried video settings as high as they can go and as low in 800*600 window mode.

 Seems straight BF2 can not connect; maybe that has something to do with it.

* I found the keys on the interment and it proceeds, the game loads; I just crashes upon clicking on servers.

* Single player dose work

* Firewall on/off doesn't matter.

You might need to install direct X

No,  I think it's something wrong with BF2...  I have no problems tuning on straight FH2 and I can even play single player, but if I try start by clinking bf2.exe; I am unable to retrieve/ create an account log in.

I keep getting a failed to connect..

Are you using the FH2 Launcher? It's the way to open the game and connect to servers these days. You can find it here: http://forgottenhope.warumdarum.de/fh2_downloads.php?

You can also try Windowed Mode there, by ticking the box in /Options. Please try that and if Windowed Mode works, and it still crashes: post the text of the error message you will get here. If Windowed Mode doesn't work, please describe what happens.

Good luck!

BF2 doesn’t work online anymore, and you won’t be able to create / retrieve your account in there. Do it in FH2, it uses different master server, separate from BF2.

Also, check your PM ;)
