Battlefield 1942

I purchased a copy of this game last year but returned it due to the well documented problems.

Since then, I have upgraded my PC to an AMD XP 2000+, 512MB RAM and Sapphire Radeon 9700 graphics card but I understand that even with these specs, the game can still take ages to load and put a strain on system resources.

I believe that there is a patch available (1.31) which is supposed to overcome performance problems but I would welcome any input from those who have the game with the latest patch installed.

I'm still
I had probs with this game on a friends macine.
It didn't help with the fact he hd onboard VGA, but the game dos have some serious faults, as do a lot of PC games. Look for a update/patch on their website. I did this and installed the latest patch and it did improve things but not as good as MOH!!

Thanks for the link, bigdamouk. Had a quick look and it seems that the patch improves things but not to a huge degree.

Should I decide to buy BF42, I will purchase it from Game then at least I can return it should I encounter any problems.
