I have had this issue since the first install of BF1942 when it came out. I have tried updating to latest full updates and it happens even after installing Road to Rome, Desert Combat and latest ATI Catalyst 03.8 - as well as doing my regular Windows Updates for XP. System is a Athlon 1800, 1gb RAM, Gigabyte Radeon 9600 PRo 128Mb and I have no similar issues with other games. Issue is this - once the game is ran and a battle started (happens in both Singleplay and Multiplay) - if in battle I hit ESC key to say, go back to the menu and change a control key or whatever, the display becomes corrupt. This means - there is no mouse pointer visable, icons and parts of the screen are black or missing, and then if I hit ESC key again to go back to the game - it is impossible to make out anything or continue play. The only way to go ahead is to CTRL+ALT+DEL and kill the app then start from scratch. Nobody I know has this issue - Im the first to see it and I've searched a few tech forums already with no results. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE can anyone shed somelight - Ive contacted EA but perhaps (begs!) someone has seen this. Such a great game!!
