i can install, patch and load 2142 without any troubles however when ever i try to join an online server it loads for 10 seconds before kicking me stating "failed communication error, Pnkbustr.exe" or something similar. i have made sure i have the latest punkbuster update as well

and help would be appreciated

make sure your PB A and B service is running, look in the services to make sure?? punkbuster did have a lot of issues before but apparantly they fixed the problem! obviously not??

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

I had the same exact problem, game would load then kick me out

all i did was put 2142 in compatibility mode for winxp and it all worked flawlessly

i dont have any issues with it anymore.

Also make sure you have the box checked that allows the game to run it administrator mode.

Steps for BF 2142 in Win 7 64bit
1) Install Battlefield
2) Install Punkbuster to the latest (found in
3) Update Punkbuster and also the Game
4) Install Full Update 1.50 (560 MB)
5) Call for "Mediiiiiiiic"' :P Game Runs in Full Mode, no Compatibility or anything else

Windows 7 64Bit

I re bought BF2142 through the EA download manager thingy a while ago thinking that this would solve the admin issues only to find that it was incompatible with Win 7 64 bit. Fortunately about a week ago I found two updates for the download manager and guess what, works like a dream. Unlike my disc install I can play Northern Strike too!!

An expensive solution to be sure but it does seem to work without any work arounds being involved.

Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit

I installed my copy last night for shits and giggles and I can join servers and whatnot but my textures are screwed up.
It looks like I am standing in the middle of the ocean and I see silhouettes of mechs and explosions in the sky.
Did the Disc install, Patched to 1.5, installed Northern Strike, then re-patched 1.5.
I tried Disc, NS, 1.5 but NS requires 1.2 before installing and I didn't have any other patches on my machine.
