Unhappy Cant Get Battlefield 1942 Demo To Work

The game wont fire up at all for me. Im using the 30.82 drivers and have also tried the 40's.

I got the game to load up once. But this was before I had installed the NVrefreshrate tool. With the game only running at 60hz.

Is there a work around for this.

Thanks....

You need to install the patch, which is meant to fix the 60Hz locked refresh rate on XP, but Ive installed the patch and I still cant load the damn demo

Thats exactly the same thing thats happening to me.

Its something with the refresh rate. Are you using any refresh programs.

The game only works 60hz on a non modified driver.

Default patch

After you apply the patch, you need to go into the file

\<base install of demo>\Settings\VideoDefault.con

and change the line

renderer.allowAllRefreshRates 0

to

renderer.allowAllRefreshRates 1

Did you do this ?
