View Full Version : Menus Don't Work

6th July 2011, 07:34 PM
I've just installed this through Steam but when I start the game the menus don't work. I can't click on any of the options. Does anyone know how to solve this?

Update: A little more info. It's like there is an offset for the mouse cursor. For example, if I hover the cursor over the "resume game" icon, the multiplayer sub menu appears. The same offset can be applied to the other menus to the left, but not to the right becuase that would need the mouse pointer going off the screen. I still can't click anything though even with this offset.

PC gaming is starting to really wear me down now.

You don't seem to be having much luck at the moment, I havn't had the problem myself, but a google suggests making sure your gfx drivers are upto date or change your desktop DPI settings - google (http://www.google.co.uk/#sclient=psy&hl=en&safe=off&source=hp&q=offset+menus+in+bc2&aq=f&aqi=&aql=&oq=&pbx=1&bav=on.2,or.r_gc.r_pw.&fp=d2b3001184872cdf&biw=1920&bih=965)

Could all these problems be due to the fact that you are using a TV ?

oooo, that reminds me of a comment I read while having a look around, someone else said theres was a bit screwy when viewed through a tv as the tv didn't scale correctly.

I got this fixed and thought I should update this thread. I right clicked on the executable BFBC2Game.exe and selected properties. Then on the compatibility tab I selected "Disable desktop composition" and "Disable display scaling on high DPI settings". I'm not sure which solved it - perhaps both. However, now the menus are usable and the game rocks.

I'm on it. Or at least I was. I was the one dying a lot ;) I'll be back on in a bit. Got a few things to sort out.

Get your Team speak sorted , you miss half the fun if you can't hear us discussing the complicated clan tactics we employ ( by this I mean drunken slurring and dribbling).

Installed Teamspeak and then realised I don't even own a PC headset. Anyone recommend a cheap and cheerful one?

Have a look on overclockers.co.uk for some ideas, £20 will get you a usable headset, won't have surround sound or other luxuries but will be good to start with.
