    After you uninstall it, the icon remains in Origin. Here is how to remove it.

    Head over to: "C:\ProgramData\Origin\InstalledGames.xml"
    Search for Game GameID="71171" and change "hidden="0"" to "hidden="1""
    No more BF3 beta in origin (you need to restart origin)

    GameID for the Alpha..."71170"

    Glad they are bringing horns back :) nothing worse than sitting behind a tank in a jeep where you can't get past. Beep Beep!! Its also good when you are just about to run someone over from behind, hit the horn just early enough for them to shit themselves, then WHAM

    Well lads! I am having a really weird problem with BF3.
    I have Origin installed and BF3 installed.
    When I click play, it shows BF3 is launching. But then nothing at all happens???? I have entered the CD-KEY too.

    What am I supposed to do?!?!?!?!

    open the battlelog website (http://battlelog.battlefield.com), log in with your origin info, and launch from there. there is a tray app that is probably running, but i find a bookmark easier.

    I tried that earlier and it didn't work either :p

    But I just updated my punkbuster which was out of date and installed the latest DirectX drivers that were in the BF3 directory and boom! Works?!?!

    I'm happy now!
    How ever, my brother is not able to get it working, his launches but it's a black screen? he can actually hear everything and I can see his name in game but he can't see anything?

    Any suggestions?

    just finished singleplayer, and it was pretty fucking awesome, but too short lol

    1 thing i really hated though, when ever a enemy sneak attack you(close combat) its so fucking hard to hit the right buttons at the right time lol

    Right click the game in Origin. Do a repair install.

    Why are jets so horrendously broken in this game :/

    Currently trying to get my K/D as low as possible with just broken jets currently at .7 with roughly 50-70 jet deaths due to the horribly unequal controls and poor handling of the jets in BF3

    are you using a joystick. Jets handle perfect for me with my joystick.

    To be fair, you shouldn't need a joystick. Thanks for sharing a fix to the busted controls though, that is appreciated.

    works so much better then a keyboard or a controller to me. I play Flight simulator a lot and have some jets in that game too and flying those has helped me fly pretty well in Battlefield. If you need a joystick recommendation if you don't have on let me know
