Hey guys.


I recently stuck in another 1GB of RAM, that was a different brand to the Geil RAM that i have in just now. It gave me quite a lot of problems (BSOD etc) so i removed it.

Im now back to 2GB.

Problem is BF2 wouldnt work, so i removed that and Special Forces, ive re-installed bf2 and it opens, but when i go to update the Game the Patch Fails and the game just wont open.


Ive tryed downloading the patch again and again, aswell as re-installing the game.


Thanks .

Re: BF2 problem

I Deleted the EA folder from The Hard drive, i Also Scanned for all BF2 files and removed them from the Prefetch.


Ill run Regsupreme to remove any registery errors and see how it goes then.

Thanks for the reply. :wave:

Re: BF2 problem

I done a system restore to when the game worked, but im getting this error:


mods/bf2/shaders/staticmesh.fx not found!!! _DO_check your working directory, _AND_ sync your shaders folder before calling upon your local programmer/GP. (really!)



Starting to annoy me now. :laugh:

Re: BF2 problem

Is this installation a bundle pack, BF2 and Special forces. If its a separate installation BF2 requires the latest update before you install Special forces.

(mods/bf2/shaders/staticmesh.fx not found!!! _DO_check your working directory, _AND_ sync your shaders folder before calling upon your local programmer/GP. (really!))

This means of cause that there are files missing, usually patching the game again fixes the problem...

Also the installtion files that are stored on the HDD may be corrupt. Installing again will not override those files, You will have to delete them manually.
Goto C:\Program Files\ InstallShield Installation Information and delte all folders in there.

Re: BF2 problem

Ive totally 100% removed everything to do with BF2 / BF:SF.

Ive ran CCleaner and Regsupreme and removed all errors ( a few were with BF2 ).

Its the bundle pack - Im going to install BF2, Then BF:Special Forces, then run the 1.41 update.


Wish me luck lol

Only option left is to try my mates disk.

Re: BF2 problem

hawman thats why i suggested regedit instead of a cleaner.a cleaner will remove entires that seem to be bad,but may not remove all entries for that game.id manually search the registry for battlefield 2,the ea games <be carefull here unless this is the only ea games,game you have.just double check any entry you remove be sure it is for the game.

Re: BF2 problem

Ive went into Regedit and removed all BF2 / SF registery enteries. Still no luck.


Ive Restored back to when i first installed XP ( dont ask why lol ), Ive installed BF2, now im doing a Disk Defrag, and then ill try and install the 1.4patch.



Im not fussed about installing Special forces because i never play it.

Re: BF2 problem

Problem solved :


Uninstall BF2 - Remove all registry / files etc.


Install BF2, Then restart and go into safe mode then install the patch. The patch should install fine. Reboot and It should be fixed.


Thanks for the help guys :wave:

Have you tried going into the control panel, and doing a repair? I have not had this error, myself, but I CAN tell you that the file is either corrupt or missing.

You can also copy it straight from the CD. You'll have to find it in, I think, a .CAB file most likely. Once you locate it, probably called StaticMesh.f_, in the .CAB file, copy it to the correct folder, then reanme it to StaticMesh.fx.

Let us know.... :wink:
