Everything was fine until I installed the 1.4 patch that was released today. Now Battlefield 2 won't load at all. I click the shortcut, I get a black screen and then crash to desktop. I uninstalled Battlefield 2 entirely and reinstalled it. Same thing. I have no idea what to do. I am pretty sure my refresh rate is set for 60. The way it is crashing makes me think it is a refresh rate type issue, but my monitor only supports 60 and that is a compatible setting.
UPDATE: This issue has been resolved. DXT textures was not enabled in my ATI control panel. This must be enabled for the game to start.
