Game description: Battlefield 2: Modern Combat brings the intensity of Battlefield 1942 into the modern era with the latest vehicles and weapons systems available. In this first-person shooter, you'll choose to fight for one of three military superpowers: the United States, China, or the newly formed Middle East Coalition. Armed with advanced weaponry, you can take control of any of the game's vehicles to engage in major conflicts with up to 24 players online. Battlefield: Modern Combat features expansive environments--from city streets to remote jungles--all around the world.
The single player campaign game revolves around a fictional war between NATO and China that takes place in Kazakhstan. The media on both sides air propaganda that accuses the other of war crimes while the player fights for each nation back and forth. When the player eventually chooses a side to lead to victory, it is revealed that a terrorist organization called Burning Flag is responsible for misleading both NATO and China into starting the war.

With GSdx (hardware) most of the screen is render black, videos flicker a lot and text in them are not render correctly. In other words use Software mode.

Tested with preset 2, Bios: Japan v2.20, GSdx software +3 rendering threads, SPU-X with async mix and interlopation set to 1-linear.

Have to use Software Renderer GSdx Setting. The game runs unstable at around 30-70% speed and 20-40 FPS. Nova Senpai

1.7.2128 GS software, D3D11, OpenGL SPU2 (async mix) Inconsistent game speed dropping as low as 60% in SW. HW modes still draw a black box on 90% of the screen. Using pre-load frame data makes this box the last drawn frame instead but doesn't fix the issue. Nyahello
