    Yes I have the latest patch (i think). but even if I don't I don't think thats the problem because it works fine on my other computer, its just the other one is slow...

    You never know. Different computers react to some games differently sometimes. Digital Illusions is the developer of the BF 1942 game. I can only suggest uninstalling and reinstalling the game and then all patches.

    What operating system are you using? XP or Vista?

    I tried re downloading it and i have vista. i think its vista because the other is xp but I don't think anyone else had this problem.
    what is the latest patch?

    BF 1942 came out before Vista so try changing the compatibility mode to Windows XP. I think the latest patch version is 1.6.19.
