More about : bf2142 working shiftstealth January 21, 2009 12:24:11 PM i run vista 32 bit and get the same problem tioga060 January 22, 2009 1:24:11 AM SOLUTION FOUND Well if your like me, then your game crashes after every time you click connect to a server. Well if you have an X-FI card, there's your problem. NOTE: it is very important to do it in this order 1. First of all, if you have vista, navigate to control panel-Hardware and sound-View hardware and devices. You can get here with XP/Classicview, but im not sure how becuase i run vista 2. Go down to sound, video and game controllers and open that. 3. Disable Creative SB X-Fi (a box may pop up, just click OK) keep the Device manager window open 4. Start up BF2142, and go to audio settings 5. Go to audio renderer and select Creative X-Fi 6. Alt tab, and reenable your Creative SB X-Fi driver 7. You should be set to play the game now Note: I believe that steps 5 and 6 may be interchangeable with each other Note: This may also work for BF2, but is not yet tested -Tioga060 Related resources CCC and BF2142 - Forum Here's a funny issue ..

Seems like they cause a lot of conflicts. They are great when they work but sheesh. I wish I would have went with an ASUS Xonar instead. I can't recall one conflict with a xonar.
