    This is NOT a thread about BF 2142 in general. I ask you to avoid discussing here any BF 2142 only rellated things one more time.

    2.03; Memory.dll sanity check error in BF2142 loading...

    Really strange.....I've been running BF2142 fine in Vista x64, and I had to quit using Rivatuner due to the Punkbuster issue (freaking PB...) but I'm wondering if this is a Rivatuner bug, Speedfan bug, or possibly both. I googled around, but there doesn't seem to be much of a consensus. This error occurs about %55 through loading a map, and it occured when I had speedfan and Rivatuner both running. I had to alt+tab out to switch focus, then when I clicked retry twice it had to shut BF2142.exe down.
    I then exited speedfan and began playing with Rivatuner again, and I played toward the end of a map. I was actually getting some (what I thought was network related) lag, but after the next map loaded the same thing happened, except I was unable to switch focus to the error (if it was in fact there) It stopped loading (but no lock up) in the middle of the map load screen...
    So I exited Rivatuner and was able to play without lag or lockups.....
    Here is the error message from admin tools>event viewer:
    and here is a screenshot of the error that occurred the first time.

    What about "if this one more BF bug" hypotesis? I'm deadly tired of doing job of EA/Evenbalance coders. Just don't use RT, it you think that it causes a problem for you - plain and simple. If I killed months on investigating and solving one issue of bad code in BF, it doesn't mean that I'll respond to any other BF 2142 related troubleshooting.

    I know you don't want to hear another guy talking about it so for the community.If you really want to run bf2142 and rt 2.03 for fan or oc profiles,you have to quit rt, run the game, join a server, alt-tab and run rt.Otherwise you'll be PUNKBUSTED.Maybe setup a hot key to run rt?Once again pb checks for "something" that rt is running.The radial file on that totalbf2142 forum is related to in-game ads,it sucks right.

    That like a loophole to run the game without being punkbusted.

    Just "punkbuster" in the message and nothing else? I
    Try to disable process portection by setting ProtectProcess to 0 in PowerUser tab then restart RT.

    "Perfect". Evenbalance's software disgnostic messages seem to be detailed as much as their support. :D

    Ok sorry.....I actually found out that the issue lies in the fact that I'm running Vista x64 with 4Gb of RAM, and that I needed a hotfix. DIdn't think that my post was out of line...

    No problem, I'm glad that you've solved your problem. I guess that I just have to get used to the fact that I'll be getting different reports about BF 2142 or any other products equipped with PunkBuster after this thread ;)
