    What? There's plenty of normal servers, cause of stingy bastards like me. I refuse to purchase NS cause it's a waste of money

    I wish I could help with your problem, but it's never happened to me and I've had it a while myself. As to there being no normal servers, Sebhael is right. There are still alot of servers for 2142. Northern Strike is only worth it to buy if you REALLY want everything.

    Did you install the new update? I installed the both BF2142 and BF2 today and then tried to install the updates and no luck. The .exe will not run or install. I got them from both filefront and EA.

    Well, I've decided to stop fiddle-faddling with EA and the BF series, as it just pisses me off to play them with the bugginess.

    First, consider downloading Directx from Microsoft and installing it again.
    Did you screw with the resolution? I forced it to 1680x1050 and it did this, even when I put it back. So go here: My Documents\Battlefield 2142\Profiles\Default and delete the video.con file. Also go to
    \Battlefield 2142\Profiles\0001 and do the same (if you have the 0001 folder).
    That fixed it for me. Good luck.

    Anyways, your best bet would. GASP, be to contact EA support.
