Here you report any errors, bugs in Global Storm.

Please note that if you want to report crash, you must run mod in window mod. First make new shortcut of Battlefield 2, then right click on that shortcut and in target line at the end add this: " +menu 1 +fullscreen 0 +szx 800 +szy 600 +modPath mods/GlobalStorm" (without ""), save and run that shortcut. Now run the map and when game crashes it should show you a new window with error description, you write that description here.

Here are few tips that could improved stability of "Battlefield 2" game and mods on Windows Vista and later versions.

- Run "Battlefield 2" in "XP SP3 Compatibility mode " and "run this program as administarator";

- Ingame under sound settings disable "EAX";

- Ingame under sound settings choose Software not Hardware option.

These few tips could work for some people, soo good luck with that ;)

As for map loading crashes, that problem is at your end. I've tested v0.5 on: my notebook win7 SP1, my old Pentium IV XP SP3 and at my roommates PC Intel quad-core win7 SP1 64bit and it works with no problem...

help!!!!!! i just follow your instruction then when i click join it will automatically close how can i fix it ??

OK guys, try this:

First BF2 v1.5 main game files must be clean, unmodded. Try this crash fix when game crashes during the loading.

Go to: "C:\Documents and Settings\username\My Documents\Battlefield 2\cache and delete "cache"


go to "C:\Documents and Settings\username\My Documents\Battlefield 2\mods\bf2 and also delete "cache"

Start the game and the map.

How powerfull is your PC/MAC? Can you run BF2 v1.5 vanilla at least on 30. FPS?

Yes it can run it easily. More than 30 fps, it only drops below when I start the mod for the first time in an hour or so.

I report this crash too (and i'm using a PC). And another one that occurs more often with road to jalalabad (16 players).

And i don't know if it's a bug or not, but sometimes when you get out of a vehicle you get throwed and loose some HP, sometimes your entire lenght. It appears essentially when the vehicle you ride is not idle, so i wonder if it's a realistic feature or a simple bug

So when you jump out from moving vehicles you could die, then good, that means it works :)

A for those urban maps crash, it looks like there is somekind of bug, now I won't be able to look more into it until weekend. I think I have few ideas.

Thanks for replys, I'll look into it :)

I had a bad sector problem with my HDD, so I had
to reinstall my Windows 7. So I reinstalled my win
7. Then I installed bf2, patched it to v1.41, after
that I patched it to v1.50. Then I installed my
mod and game/mod starts with no problem. So I
don't know about mod crashes when starting a
game. If you have this problem than problem is at
your end. Now I can confirm that on some urban
maps mod crashes when playing for a few
minutes and I'm gonna start working on a fix.

Try this fix: Delete your "Battlefield 2" folder in Documents

copy one map from bf2 levels into globalstorm levels. Then start global storm and start that map that you copied. Does it works?

May 21 2013, 9:03am Anchor
