Installation Issues

  • Installs with cedega 6.0.
  • You may need to copy the gdiplus.dll from the CD AutoRun directory to the fake $HOME/.cedega/BFME2/c_drive/windows/system32 directory before installing.

Game Play Issues

  • Game must be played in fullscreen mode.
  • WinVer must be set to WinXP
  • The "AGP Vertex Data" size may need to be limited to 128MB to avoid hangs during loading saved games. This is properly not needed if you running the latest Nvidia drivers. There it will result in extreme slow down. Go back to default setting.
  • When run the first time, it takes a long, long time to start. Be patient, it will start.
  • The game does crash from time to time, so save moderately frequently.
  • Copy protection works, but if the proper registry entries are missing, the game auto defeats you after 3 mins and 30 Seconds of play. The registry entries after updating to version 1.06 are (insert your CD key where shown):
