I play battlefield 1942 in winxp pro, and when I join a multiplayer server, \nit connects fine but 1-3 seconds after the game actually loads and I'm in \nthe game, bf 1942 crashes back to the desktop.\n\nHere's the kicker: I can play bf 1942 just fine in single player mode \nagainst the computer, and it doesn't error or crash out. I was playing the \ngame fine for almost a year before the problem started 2 weeks ago. When it \nfirst started, I uninstalled and re-installed the game and it worked fine \nfor 1-3 games, then started crashing again and needing a reinstall. After a \nfew reinstalls it just stopped working. I even formatted and reinstalled the \ngame and after 1 game online it began crashing again.\n\nI updated my video drivers, all drivers actually. No firewall is blocking \nme. Everything was working AOK for a long time then this started \nhappening... Is it possible I have hardware issues and something is starting \nto go bad? I think its very weird its only if I join an online server... \neverything is up to date and proper and this just started happening out of \nthe blue!\n\nAny ideas what might be going on here, given the conditions?\n\nThanks all!
