IV. NOTES ON COMPATIBILITY
==========================

Battlefield 2142 demo is designed to run on Windows XP compatible graphics and
sound cards. Drivers for these devices are provided by the respective card
manufacturer and may result in compatibility issues beyond our control.

If you are experiencing any issues, it is always recommended that you obtain
and install the latest drivers for your hardware. The majority of hardware
vendors have the latest drivers available for download via their websites.





====================================
V. KNOWN ISSUES AND TROUBLESHOOTING
====================================

CHANGING DISPLAY MODE
Occasionally on some video cards you may be allowed to set the display mode to
one not supported by your computer. This will result in a black screen being
shown. To remedy this use the Windows
Explorer to find and delete the directory:

\My Documents\Battlefield 2142 demo\Profiles\

This will reset your game to the default settings. You can now start the game,
retrieve or create a new profile, and re-adjust the settings using the Menu as
normal.

Players with SoundMAX HD Audio integrated chipsets may experience crackling and
popping audio during game play, if you are experiencing this please ensure you
have the latest hardware drivers installed (see IV. NOTES ON COMPATIBILITY)

Players who have the Windows security update KB917422 installed may suffer from
an application error when running the Battlefield 2142 demo. This error can be
solved by uninstalling the KB917422 update.

you use functions such as Alt-Tab and other variations then you may experience
