Modifying the video.con just results in it displaying in a default resolution (ie tiny) and trying the shortcut route just lead to three crashes before the walker intro movie even appears.

Oh and it comes with this error report

Edit -
This reminds me of an old problem when BF2142 first got released when you had to download the SDK of Directx. I'm not sure if this is the same kind of thing... anyone know?
This maybe due to the resolution you are trying to run I think that bf2142 might have an issue with it since widescreen support wasnt a big deal then I would try to start with a lower resolution like 1440x900 I think I read somewhere once that 1440x900 was the max for the game but I could be wrong.

Oh after the updates it has support for 1600x1200 in the game itself and I've run 1920x1200 in vista and xp. You're right about the no widescreen though. I'd be happy just having any old widescreen setting to be perfectly honest but it seems that none work at present. All of them crash though oddly enough I have just tried it through the admin account and it did work but then I got disconnected from the server again, like before, and then when I tried again I got a "packet flow corruption" from punkbuster but I've not found anything about that yet.

I installed battlefield 2142 successfully on windows 7 32bit and I downloaded the patches. When I tried to install the patches it said it wasn't compatible with win7.
What do I do?


I'm not very good with computers so it was probably novice mistake.

PS Sorry for using this thread if it annoyed anyone.

Just go ahead and run the patch, it will also say the same thing if run on Vista due to the OS no being out when they created the game. you should be good to just run the install of the patch.
