Hi, I have a problem with battlefield 2 not starting. It gives me an error


I'm running Windows 10 & I have an AMD R9 390X graphics card.
I've tried re-installing, running it in compatibility mode for Windows XP, Vista, 7.
Nothing is working,... PLEASE HELP! I used to play this game all the time & now I can't & its making me very sad

At first glance it seems like a corrupt shaders file. Are you running the original game, Steam version, or a free one? What folder do you have it installed to? Did you try to run as admin? Are you up to date on your AMD drivers? Is one of your stringent anti-malware programs blocking a process it shouldn't?

edit: there could be some lingering files from an old install that are causing issues even after you reinstall. try (carefully) using revo uninstaller next time. Might be worth deleting your 'Battlefield 2' folder in 'My Documents' after backing it up somewhere else, as well.

If you gave me a free key for Battlefield 1 I still wouldn't even bother installing it.
