Hello Guys,

after I watched some games of the tomorrowlan I got really pumped to play that game again with some of my old german guys. But I got a really shitty problem, everytime I start the Game I get blackscreen and can't go back to the desktop ( always need to close it via task-manager ). Like 2y ago I had the same problem but the main menu showed up after like 5-10min. But that's not working anymore. Got Win8 64-bit and changing to win7 or something similiar is no option for me, also made a support ticket already but the admins dont have a solution either. Anyone here have/had the same problem and got a solution for me?
Would really appreciate it.


ps: also tried a few shit already : firewall on/off, antivir on/off, changing the priority of the game to win7/winxp etc. running as adminstrator on/off with different prioritys, unplug headset, reinstalling cod2

Try enabling stereo mix in your recording devices.

Does it crash and give you an error after letting it start for 15 minutes or does it just stay in a black screen?

as I said it just stays in black screen and I have to close it via task-manager coz it doesn't let me go back to the desktop or anything else

I've had same problem, and still having too, and I found pretty stupid solution, every time I need to enter Cod2 i have to join some random server on xfire, and xfire must be turned on, really don't know why I have this shitty problem, but like I said it helps.

Blackscreen is still present but it no longer than 1 minute, maximum minute and half. Did you managed to enter the game with that option?

it's just that way with win8 there's no help, you shouldn't enable any compatibility or run as administrator options.You just have to wait about 5 minutes and it will enter.I read this has something to do with windows 8 legacy drivers.

When you say win8 do you mean actual 8 or 8.1? Because if you're running just 8, I suggest upgrading to 8.1.

I'm running 8.1 and with these settings I can launch the game instantly.
