Star Wars: Battlefront 2 crashes to desktop

I recently installed SW: BF2 and when I start Instant Action, it crashes to desktop with no message. Any help will be appreciated. Thanks.

BFR 2 did that in vista .. I tried and tried to fix it... but never found a fix.

Maybe with 7's new registry calls I can find the issue.

I reinstalled it tonight myself to test.

vista had issues with all the star wars NOTOR 1 AND 2 GAMES also.

lucas arts? I've searched their registy entries so many times to try to find fixes in vista.

can you post your error message to me when the game fails? does it fail on load? does it fail in game when you try to load a profile? etc

get back to me I will find a fix.

I have this problem too. Disable your sound device (probably Realtek) and the game will work..... but you'll have no sound

If you have Realtek integrated sound, then download the latest driver for your sound directly from Realteck. I had the same problem on my laptop. After installing the new driver with Windows 7 Ult 64bit, BF1 and BF2 work just fine with sound.

What I had to do was go to control panel and select sounds, then right click on speakers.
Then I selected show disabled. It turned out that my realtek device was disabled. So I enabled it and all is well

But... no realTek

The problem then lies with what sound system you're using.

For example, I'm not running RealTek. I don't get an option to re-enable my sound devices.
When I follow the instructions as posted above, all I can do is disable my speakers, but when I re-enable them, my sound returns and BF2 crashes again.

So far, any solutions offered (but in this thread and the other similar one) have been based around playing without sound (pointless), or enabling the Realtek sound (which I don't even have).

Any other ideas, folks? (apart from getting out in the lovely sunshine and such)

Thanks!

I stumbled across this looking for a solution to the same problem. Strangely enough once i plugged in a USB headset it stopped crashing. If i unplug the headphones it crashes. Just have to play with headphones. Hope this works for you or leads someone to a solution.

Hi Pete!

I got a solution, vvery similar to yours, but it saves you having to wear headphones.

I plugged a set of phono headphones directly into the MICROPHONE socket on the front of my PC. They just hang there, don't interfere with my sound, and I don't need to wear the phones.

Similarly to yours, if I unplug them mid-game, it crashes.

Thanks!
