    I can't even install it, DX installer keeps failing, stopping the entire install process. Same thing happened with Beta, but the fix for that doesn't work for this. Fml.

    "DirectX Setup Error: An internal error occurred." Anyone know a fix?


    Fixed it. Removed all of the CAB files from the DX installer folder in the BF3 directory. Bastard installed, now downloading the 568MB (day 1?) patch.

    K so after disabling ULPS I thought I was in the clear. After a few games, straight back to stuttering/lagging like a motherf@$&!

    So I disabled Crossfire and to my suprise, bang it stopped. Played for 3-4 hrs without one single hiccup. I have everything on the pre-set High settings. It doesn't dip below 55FPS.

    That's amazing for a single 6870. What's funny is, this is my first time running any game on a single 6870. Never knew it packed a nice punch, especially for the price.

    So hopefully AMD will release some nice drivers for CFX users.

    Me too :)

    Ah, guys, being all in the TPU platoon in Battlelog, I find it unnecesary to have any friends in the Origin app, so I deleted everyone there, to make Origin a nearly silent resident :)

    So i have read that some people think the contrast is too high in the game. I think Battlefield since BC has always been a pretty bright game. I love the overall lighting though.

    Damnit!!! I just found a couple bugs:

    Keybindings
    -------------
    It says "Hold ESC to delete the current key assignment", it does not.
    Then on the same Key bindings page, if you press "Restore defaults" it does not only restore KEY DEFAULTS, it restores ALL THE SETTINGS (audio, video, etc etc) !

    thats been known for quite a while. I haven't messed with them because controls are fine as is.

    A lot of people over at OCN obviously did not play BF2 when it first released. WHen it released it was bug filled to all hell. At this point BF3 is much better but multiplayer bugs it seems could be fixed. Which they will, Dice is full of perfectionists

    Vehicles still get turned to scrap metal within a few seconds. For example me and my squad were in a tank. We came under rpg attack from 2 guys so two of us started repairing the M1A2 while it was fighting back and it died despite two engies constantly repairing it.

    Oh and Gully I was just on a server there and it was a hacked server which forced you to spawn outside the map where to guys just aimbotted you over and over again. I have vid proof and the server name what should I do.

    Yeah I agree, the heavy tanks at least need a buff, it's pretty ridiculous. They were fine in BC2, now in this game they look like they were made out of recycled tin cans.

    After much debate I got this game for X360 and after playing the beta on PC and xbox I decided I was tired of the upgrade game, im sure i'll get bashed for it but IMO what they pullled off on the xbox is nothing short of amazing, it looks as better than the beta did on high easily. I beat it last night and i must say the first missions do not do the game justice, so i have no regrets selling off my "high end" PC and just enjoying the game without all the work that you have to do to get it playing right on PC.

    I have ran a single 6870 for a year in a half and
    it has done great for me on BFBC2 and BF3 so far.
    Everything is maxed except AA. Running 1080P.
    Though I may tone a couple more things down. If
    I'm in a close quarters fire fight I always lose. It may
    be the card or the fact I have no unlocked weapons yet.
    Plus I have slower reaction time because I'm an old fart.
    Looks Great though !

    Hey guys, If you seen me online last night, it wasn't me playing it was......... MY sister :) She is a hardcore gamer but mainly console stuff like WII and Xbox 360. She said BF3 was the best game she has ever played in FPS! She even flew jets around and she have NEVER played a FPS game on PC! She leveled me up to LVL5 from LVL3 last night just by sitting in the APC and heat seaking jets and helis on capsian border lol

    over all it was a trip watching her talk shit and really get into the game

    you almost had a point until you had to try and turn it around.

    all i had to do to get it playing?: download, install. play.
    you had to go to a store to get an xbox disc, you have to pay for gold for any real experience, you are playing a shooting game with auto-aim and a controller.

    imo you are dealing with more crap to play then i am.

    I am so bummed.... I cannot log into battlelog. I get a message - YOUR ACCOUNT IS NOT ALLOWED TO LOGIN.

    I have fucking tried everything, re-installing game, cleaning internet cache, disabling all firewalls etc. Apparantly there are a lot of people having this issue.

    I have been trying all night to get onto live chat with ea and am finally nearly there.

    Already missed the official launch by 30mins. :banghead:
