Battlefield 2 probs

Archived from groups: comp.sys.ibm.pc.games.action (More info?)

I just DL'd and tried the demo and I am getting HORRIBLE framerates on
the singleplayer. It's literally like 3fps and I have no idea why. I
have tried lowering the sound and the shadows to no avail. My system
specs are:

AMD Athlon XP 3200+
1.5GB RAM
GeForce 6800

so the game should run almost perfectly. I'm stumped. Anyone have any
ideas how to fix the horrible, horrible performance?

    At least you got it to run. I get a black screen and then it crashes
    back to desktop.

    Did you use the included Nvidia drivers?

    I've got the same setup as you, but 1 gig instead of 1.5.
    And i'm running on 1280x960, with high detail (no AA)
    and it runs ok.
    But only with included drivers, they seem to work the best...
    They are located in your game dir: \Battlefield 2 Demo\nvidia_driver.

    Does your video card support Shaders 1.4 or later ?

    If not, time for a visit to your friendly computer hardware store.

    If it does, you may need to update ALL your drivers, and/or clean
    up your system.

    Please read the demo README very thoroughly. It is full
    of useful information that may be relevant to your problem.
