I have just re-installed windows on my new harddrive and installed BF1942.

I then patched it to the latest version and tried to play, the intro movies worked fine but when It came to the main menu all I got was a white screen with "copyright 2002 EA games" down the bottom.

The menu music still played and I moving the mouse around made the menu buttons play their mouseover sound.

I tried re-installing and trying with no patch but still the same thing. I read that a few people had a similar problem when BF1942 first came out that was related to nvidia's drivers, but I have the same, latest drivers that I was using before the reinstall of windows. Apart from the harddrive, no hardware has changed either.

I have emailed EA but have not got a reply yet, usually they send one quick but not this time :illogical

Did you get a reply from EA games in the end?

I take it you installed the motherboard drivers as well and updated DirectX?

Any chance you have enabled AntiAliasing or Anistropic Filtering on your graphics card? If so change back to application controlled. That sometimes messes up BF1942.

well in the meantime nvidia had released newer drivers... so I tried those and it works perfectly now :thumbs:

still haven't got any word from EA though. :annoyed:
