@kiritoXasunaXyui that is the copy protection kicking in. While the problems occurs mostly on the pirated copies, it does occur on the legit copies sometimes, too. For the legit copies, the solution is doing a full uninstall (involves deleting whatever remains after the uninstall, save folder and anything related to BFME)

 

P.S.: use only the official patches. The last patch for BFME 1 was 1.03, if i am not mistaken. Anything after this version is definitely the unofficial patch, which may create its own set of problems.

I do not work for EA and i am not associated with the company in any way. I am a player just like you, trying to help wherever i can.I will not answer to any unsolicited PM.
