You can still play MP without updating the game?

I was playing just now & BC2 hanged on me, then booted back to desktop after i played another 10mins. I was curious so i checked my BC2 folder & clicked the updater. Now it's updating.

Btw, my updater keeps flashing with corrupted graphics. Is my graphic card dying?

What's your card/driver version?

Oh and where is the updater located in the game files?

GTX260 latest beta 197.13

It's in your BFBC2 folder, filename is "BFBC2Updater".

I've been having the same problem with my nvidia gtx260 1.8g. The only thing that works for me is forcing dx9. If you find anything out let me know.

I was getting the same errors with my GTX 260, but then again it was heavily overclocked every time it happened, so I don't know for sure if it is the card/driver, or the game.
