Try re installing. It's an anti-piracy feature built into the game. Sometimes, if the game thinks it's been pirated, it will do that to prevent you from playing. So try a fresh install. Should fix it.

Well, if you have the actual physical discs, and installed with them. And you use them every time you
want to play, meaning you don't use a mini image or a no-cd crack. And it still does this to you then
i'm afraid we can't help you.

On the other hand, if you ARE using a downloaded ISO to install, or you're using a no-cd crack or a
mini image to play, then this most likely is the problem, and the only thing i can say as a member on this
forum is to buy an actual copy. sorry.


Edit: I don't think this thread is even in the right subforum. :p

... I think you missed the point. :p

Do what you will. Because either way, there isn't much we can do to help, other than what we've done already.

One thing you could do, is download a copy via torrents. Then installing it using YOUR ORIGINAL cd key, and patch and play the game using YOUR DISKS. This way, without the no cd cracks and cracked serial, technically your version is still legal. Because isn't that the idea behind torrents? to have a backup on ones software on the computer not requiring a disk...

The game shouldnt do this to you then... If it does, then you're outta luck.

I'm not going to give you a link. If you choose to look for one, then (I will at least) pretend I didn't know.

ok i reinstalled bfme 2 because i was editing it and my online stuff got messed up so i uninstalled it and reinstalled it.... now the game wont start cause of the gameLOD.ini ShadowLOD line 20 not working here is the code that is in it
