Hi, I've tried everything, on this thread and a few others. For me, it makes absolutely no difference. I recently upgraded my PC, now I have a Ryzen 2600 and RX 480 and new HDDs SSD... BF1942 worked before but now it just loads a black loading screen and a small bar appears on the upper left corner. Is there anything else I could try? I REALLY WANT TO PLAY BF1942.
I have a similar problem. Just got a new PC. BF1942 worked on my old one and now not the new one. I am playing the game through Origin I should mention. I click the game to play and all i get is a black screen and then I get taken back to my desktop with no error message or anything. I really hope we can find a solution!!

What's the lowest resolution you can set your monitor to
because Battlefield 1942 in the beginning needs a monitor that support 800 by 600.
if that's good make sure the Microsoft game DVR is off.
now it's time to check what version of Battlefield 1942 you have.
there are two versions cd rom or origin download you can check if you have that.
Your game will be installed in the following path.
C:\Program Files (x86)\Origin Games if you see a folder named battlefield 1942
you got the origin version
in that case you only need to patch up the master server.
However if your game is installed in the following path.
C:\Program Files (x86)\EA GAMES if you see a folder named battlefield 1942
you got the cd rom version.
you need to fully patch up your game.
if battlefield 1942 still doesn't work after all this then you're against the hard to find problem.
make sure you don't have any screen overlay programs installed,
like overwolf for teamspeak or any overlay programs that are turn on by your graphical driver
turn all off if that still doesn't work out
