Install Battlefield 2142.

Go to Add/Remove Programs on XP.

Click BF2142, go to Add Components (I think that's right).

Tick the main game and Punkbuster. This keeps the game on and installs Punkbuster.

This worked for me when I first got the game (friend helped me over Xfire). Install the full 1.00 to 1.50 patch at any time before/after or just use the individual ones :P

Make sure the 2 punkbuster services have full access and are not restricted by any firewall (including XPs if you don't have a 3rd party installed).

I am getting dropped now and then for losing key packets, prob my poor connection.

Have you installed pbsvcs.exe and pbupdate.exe?

When you run them, right click and run them as administrator.

I just got dumped for the packets issue, cant get back in, the server is too small - its full :P

this ive seen before,have you taken a look at your mobo driver too?sometimes its more that just graphics card drivers that need updating,also try different screen resolutions 1280 by 768 etc,btw whats your max resolution?also play with the bf2142 graphics options(high,med,low)on my older pc i had an nvidia8600gt 256mb and for some reason i just couldnt run the game on high settings even tho reccomended system requirements were met(it went white on the titan)

did u get a new PC? - all the above happened to me when i got a new PC - re mic quiet - chk your mic boost before every game because i found that it defaults back to 0db after each reboot - make sure u have mic boost clicked and also turn the bar up to 18db before starting each game - r u using ASUS M/B? do u hve on yr desktop a program called "VIA HD AUDIO DECK"?

strangely it's staying on 18db now............but it was like a month of so of setting it higher before i start the game
