    Guy's...for those like me who had problems with micro-stuttering, crashing, etc...I did some research and people who are running 11.8 Final Release and 11.9 CAP 4 runs the best! It works! Smooth playing on Ultra maxing at 60+ FPS :)

    New driver coming out very soon I think Monday but if you're really having problems I guess that's worth a shot.

    Wow. Well just tested Firestorm and Caspian with my 4GB kit of Hypers at 2160 8-8-8-24 and on my setup it's unplayable at the settings I run 8GB @ 1800 with. Total slideshow very often whereas I only get a drop into the teens very rarely otherwise and it's obvious why given whats happening on screen. Alt-Tab out showed using like 3.5-3.8GB. Others including erocker have reported it's fine but not for me.

    Really glad I just scored this 8GB kit as it was a $35 Shellshocker.

    Got this score using an AA and I never camped in base I drove around looking for a fight. Took out 2 tanks loads of heli's planes infantry and cars. Kinda think the AA is OP.

    It's not as much once they have more upgrades and know how the hell to pilot. At any rate I'm enjoying the hell out of it and between that, reg tanks and mines I have like 175 vehicles destroyed already.

    depends on the AA

    the heavily armored Transport Vehcile can take on a tank with a good driver and gunner, and win,

    AA has missles, shoot a tank from behind bam

    whats op is the 40 mines an anti tank soldier can drop
    long as you have a support dude in your squad feeding you ammo you can keep dropping mines.

    You can't shoot AA missiles at tanks and the tanks I've took on is usually head to head or from the side.

    Yeah tho the last statement is key. And I never get resupplied even those rare times I see a Support. At least on the big vehicle maps which is all I've been playing. I had to hit Comm 4 times before you dropped me a pack too! I know you're trying to not die and all but c'mon! ;)

    Man I was so happy when I got explosives upgrade. Seriously, once I tired a little of enemy vehicle rape I'm gonna play Support on Caspian and Firestorm and such and whore resupp points! :roll:

    really uh my LAV has missles and i can hit tanks with them no problem so yea....... dont know what sup on your end as i have 0 issues doing it,


    as for my support and ammo throwing


    ask cabooose

    i fed him must have been nearly 600points worth of ammo on 1 map / round

    theres no AUDIO cue to give ammo anymore, your hitting that comm button but i get no visual or audio cue to give ammo period. so yea theres alot of shit still broken in BF3, then again that dosent surprise me.

    Crazy always drops supplies for me.

    I had a really good time tonight. I think it's because I was grouped with Crazy and Digi plus another dude and everyone in my squad was working together. So much fun.

    Which missles exactly? The heat seekers you unlock first don't do ground vehicles that I can tell. Unless perhaps they were locked on using the Guided Shell thing MBTs get? Cause thats what I think that thing does but not sure.

    Thats cool. I run out of ammo all the time tho esp mines. Only played a few rounds with Crazy so far tho...

    Is there a way to tell which weapon is better than another weapon?

    I'm not an expert so I have no idea which to select whether or not faster fire rate is better or anything.

    I usually just pick a weapon that deals the most damage but unlike Bad Company 2 I can't see any weapon stats here.

    depends on how you play.
    if ur into close quarters combat you want to get a gun that excels in short range.
    if you hitting people from a distance, you'll want an AR with long range.
    and then there are ur medium range weaps. :laugh:

    also the descriptions of the weapon give's you some insight as to how it will work.

    for example take the scar-H, you do not want to use this gun at long range LOL
    it had horrendous recoil

    I get 40-50fps with my SLI 470's at "medium" settings. Granted, it's at 5760x1200, but I still expected performance to be better considering I can max out the settings in most every other game at the same resolution. I'm hoping for more driver improvements so I don't have to get better cards just to get "high" settings.

    What do they mean by ammunition and why should I care about what size they are?

    Is that like how much damage the weapon will deal?

    Also I notice some blue dots in the weapon stats usually grouped like .. .. ... or sumtin

    What does that mean? Man I wish I had the game manual..
