Some people may allready know this, or not even be experiencing the crashes to desktop.

I tried this out today (due to its difficulty in reproducing it) its hard to know for sure if its a fix or not. But so far after an hours worth of play i didnt have one CTD or black screen flicker.

Now open your settings.ini file in your BFBC2 folder ussually in My Documents.

Open it in word doc, Look for Bloom and dxversion.

Change Bloom to False and dxversion to 10 or 9 (it should be originally set to auto)

Save it.

Now last but not least change the file to read only, right click the file and select properties, now go to attributes down the bottom and select read only.

Select Ok.

Give that a go fellas, i feel confident.

If this happens to you, could you please post your hardware specs, i have a feeling it happens on allot on crossfire/sli systems..

Also heard that changing the hertz rate can fix some crashes. If your monitor is 59h, change it to 59 exactly. Or 60 for 60h.

I think you’d be running at 60hz with that.
