I've tried everything....and it took me 11 hours to transfer all the data onto 48 floppy disks. Pac-man plays really well on high....and I pull about 6 fps on frogger.

Are you sure you aren't trying to load the game on your toaster?
Those specs are very similar to my toaster.

If that is your real system spec, i wouldn't recommend you try and play any game made after 1995 :p

You need to paint "go-faster stripes" on the side of your case.

Someone got out of the wrong side of bed this morning, didn't they?

What happened to your sense of humour? Did you leave it on the bus?

An onboard video solution, likely by Cirrus Logic, with 256k or 512k of ram, with no OpenGL /Direct x capable drivers....

Prime FEAR system for LAN parties! :-)

Does it support SLI? :lol:

Im sorry man, but your system does not meet the requirements to play BF2 game in it's minimum.

This is the system requirements to play the game just to give you an idea.

Operating System
Windows XP (32 Bit Version)

- CPU
Battlefield 2 supports the following processors:
Intel Pentium 4
Intel Xeon
Intel Pentium Extreme Edition
Intel Celeron D
AMD Athlon XP
AMD Athlon 64
AMD Athlon 64-FX
AMD Sempron processor

- Minimum Specification:
CPU: 1.7 Ghz
RAM: 512 Mb
Video Card: NVidia GeForce FX 5700, ATI Radeon 8500 or ATI Radeon 9500
with 128 Mb of RAM

- Recommended Specification:
CPU: 2.4 Ghz
RAM: 1 Gb
Video Card with at least 256 Mb of RAM

- Video Cards
Battlefield 2 only supports the following video cards:
Radeon X700 (PCIe)
Radeon X600 (PCIe)
GeForce 6600 (PCIe)
GeForce PCX 5900 (PCIe)
GeForce 5800 Series (AGP)
ATI Radeon X800 XT Platinum Edition
ATI Radeon X800 PRO
ATI Radeon 9800 Series
ATI Radeon 9600 Series
ATI Radeon 9550 (RV350LX)
ATI Radeon 9500 / 9700 Series
ATI Radeon 8500 Series
ATI Radeon X300 Series
NVidia GeForce 6800 Ultra
NVidia GeForce 6800 GT
NVidia GeForce 6800
NVidia GeForce FX 5950 Series
NVidia GeForce FX 5900 Series
NVidia GeForce FX 5700 Series
or higher graphics card

I'd say an Intel 2.5Ghz/Amd 2.0Ghz cpu, X800/6800 card or better, 2Gb of ram, and a good hard drive running on windows XP. That should play the game with no problem.

:D

Solution: Use it for a file server and build a new PC.
March 24, 2006 12:25:49 PM

have to agree, a server is the only answer for this. Use linux since it can actually fit on a 300M hdd w/ a minimal (gui-less) install.

The 1Ghz should handle SSH tunneling and/or openVPN nicely. Great to use w/ dyndns or noip...

I don't think there's too much hope for me so - I just spend 5 weeks transferring it to punch cards, and I was just checking they were all in the right order!

48 floppies...... we're they double sided HD?
March 24, 2006 12:42:56 PM

Hey man, after a week of trying and googling I managed to get BF2 running on my machine. The problem is it takes too much time to load on my 2X cdrom and also i get some skippin in-game coz it starts to swap memory on my PIO mode 4 HD. Anyway, i have some 2~3 fps, lots of fun!!
March 24, 2006 2:13:49 PM

like someone said above.. the game will simple NOT even RUN on cards below the listed.

i had a GeForce 4 Ti4200 and the game would not load.

your using ONBOARD video... you've got to be out of your mind in the first place to play any game with that crap.

i hope you were joking about the system specs. lol my grandmother has a better PC than that man.

64MB Ram
.345GB HD
On-board video

Maybe there is some hope for me after all. I have $45 for an upgrade......so much to choose from
March 24, 2006 4:48:52 PM

AHAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH

ah crap i almost pissed my pants.

dood to run BF@ you need a computer that wasnt built by the flinstones.

spend about 1000 bucks and you'll be able to play BF2. although if you want to beat me you need to pump in another 14,000 to compete. :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:

And yes i will be upgrading when AM2 Quad SLI and some other things come out. :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:

Bet you could do it for a lot less if you needed to. I'm sure you could build a system that runs BF2 decently for about $600-700. Most of the settings would probably be set to "low" but it would probably run fine.

To:p RSguitar87
I like your precision on your clock speed and HD size. :wink:

Of course its not BF2, but I got UT2k4 to run on an XP1500 w/128MB Ram and integrated graphics (leaching 16MB or 32MB I think). I had EVERYTHING turned down ALL THE WAY, and I could tell that not everything was rendering properly... but it was decently smooth.

I would spend the extra cash and get yourself a nice 1541 disk drive.
March 24, 2006 9:02:01 PM

haha, what are the minimum requirements to run BF2 all out?

not one of the specs is even near the standard, i have like 5 pc's that rip your system there.

now if you read the god dam box you would see MINIMUM SPECS and give up and stop wasting our time.
