Map loading freeze

A Forum Thread for Battlefield 2142

When loading map, it freezes

Ok, I was playing BF2142 with my friend yesterday and it worked fine. But, today, i wake up and open BF2142, join a server, and nothin unusual. But a little more than through loading the map, it just stops. i left it there for about 10min with no progress shown when i return. Also, i tried alt+f4, f10, ctrl+alat+del, and everything to minimize or shut it down and nothing! So, i decide to restart and try it again, and before i knew it... the loading freezes AGAIN! plz help.

    Did you get Northern Strike as well? Cause I've heard from multiple sources that the game freezes/crashes when it tries to load a new map. That happened to a close friend matter of fact...

    Try deleting your shaders in this file: C:\Documents and Settings\"your" Documents\My Documents\Battlefield 2142\mods\bf2142\cache The "your" part is the name of your computer.

    No, i deleted all the folders and then tried joining a game i wasn't paying attention, and when i looked back at my screen it was going through the shader optimization, and it got stuck at the same exact spot it gets stuck in regularly. i'm going to try a reinstall, which i don't mind. but... i hate those huge patches

    'Allo mates, I've got the same problem with freezing. I've reinstalled the game completely, turned off VOIP, deleted the specific shaders that Deski mentioned, and I don't have Northern Strike. Half way through loading the map, it stops running, and takes over the computer in a frozen state(i.e.; Ctl+Alt+Del, etc. do NOT respond). When I reboot, the active desktop activation warning screen appears. I really agree with Bananite...I don't mind reinstalling, and I don't lose my character, but wowsers those patches...!

    Ok, I reinstalled, and for a few matches it worked fine. Then, the gay freeze of death stealthily approached and stopped the loading bar in its tracks. I really don't want 2 reinstall again, so is there any other stuff i need to change/delete/fix? (and yes i turned of VOIP, deleted shaders, and all that good stuff)

  • There is a solution for the map only getting halfway that seems to work for most people, which is: Go into c: program files: electronic arts, bf2142. In there there is a file called radial.cdb. If you cant see it, go to the top of the page and hit tool, then folder options, then view. Then make sure that you change "hidden files and folders" to "show hidden files and folders". Two lines below that is a line called "hide protected operating system files (reccomended)", make sure that this is no ticked. Then click apply, and you should see the radial.cdb file. Now right click that file and left click "rename". Rename it to oradial.cdb. The maps should now load with no problems. For some reason, this file seems to get corrupted. Hope it works! It worked for me when mine did the same feezing thing!

    Hi ho Meeka_09 If you look in the folder options window again in the midle of the check box list you will find 'hide protected operating system files' uncheck this and your missing file should appear. I had exactly the same prob as you today and renaming that file seems to have solved the problem for me (also using vista 32)
