Is anyone else getting problems with BF2 after installing the 1.4 patch? Im getting strange black shapes (like textures & colours are missing - mainly green) and when I press the ESC button it now totally exits the game instead of going to the BF2 menu screen!

Everything was running fine before I installed the *ucking patch...........damn EA!!! :mad:

Well, I personally have a problem where if someone spots something, it DOES NOT show up on my map AT ALL, so if I'm in a fighter jet, and someone spots the enemy jet for me, I have no idea where it actually is...

That sort of thing sometimes happens for me, but it did with 1.3 too.

I'd recommend trying the reinstall the game and patch for that menu texture thing. After that move on to using drivercleaner to remove drivers and install the latest ones...

Dang Patches.....

I'm not experiencing those problems, however every since I installed the patch my Ping goes through the roof when I join a squad or command (see my BF2 High Ping review). Anyway, I would try reinstalling drivers, adjusting overclocking settings, etc., maybe try reinstalling the game/patch, you never know. I know when I first installed my 2 x 7900GT cards I had to underclock then overclock for things to work right, took me awhile to figure it out:wtf:
