America is waiting
Man am I happy I took the other way: I play at 45FPS at the default Ultra presets (no switching this or that off) with a lower clocked GPU (700 not 800 that was a typo)
Just for the record, of course
Now some work and tomorrow more shooting poor souls into heaven.
I wouldn't be really comparing a 470 and a 5850, the price difference is $40 - $50. Granted Newegg doesn't sell them anymore though. Around the 470's price there isn't really any competition for the 470, 6870 is about $20 under and 6950 1gb is about $30 over.
Sure kurgan, I returned a 5850 and payed that extra cash for extra peace of mind. 50 bucks more sometimes is much more value, if the old adagio 'time is money' is still valid
Anyway, it was just a surprise to see it run (not a slideshow, but not good, honestly) at half speed!
I got that today card is stock I think lol but it happened when I set it to ultra settings wtf and I think the card was dropping to low fox like it could handle ultra settings BS
For those Anti-Origin-als: http://gamasutra.com/view/news/38304/Hackers_Work_Around_Battefield_3s_Origin_Requirement.php
You can play multi player without origin but you do need a legit key.
I did post this earlier, you do need a legit key.
Probably best to PM such things.
I don't see any problem as you need to have bought it for this, it is not really warez or considered pirating imo.
Well it violates the EULA and is a bannable offense as far as EA is concerned. They can suck it, but the fact remains.
I wonder if they could tell you are playing it sans Origin?
I don't think so or we'd have heard. But I would only use this if I had no other options, myself.
Hey TheMailman78 is browsing the thread.
Do we need to hide from him or summat?
Nah, just didn't think we'd be seeing him here anymore so kind of a nice surprise.
why wouldn't we see him??
Long story. Note he is no longer the OP of this thread which he started.
he had a mid life crisis and started killing kittens, so erocker perma-banned him.
At least someone finally thought of the kittens.
Patrick Bach: Back to Karkand’s map Wake Island “has had quite a lot of changes”
Patrick Soderlund Talks Battlefield 3
Planet Battlefield -NVIDIA Battlefield 3 TDR Fix Soon + AMD 11.10 Catalyst Released
Nvidia is asking people to send in their GPU's? That's awesome, lol. I've never heard of that before.
Also, I don't mind DICE making changes to the classic maps. It would be weird to fight on Wake Island in 1942 with modern weaponry. Besides, the conversion from the BF2 engine to Frostbite 2 makes it easy to take creative liberties with the classic maps. Judging by the quality of the BF3 release maps, I don't think there'll be any real issues.
Anybody else receiving "Black Screens" when joining matches or switching maps? Please, if anybody knows tell me a good remedy
Alt+F4, then restart teh game. Yes, that is all.
No one on the TPU server >.>
I understand Wringley, but I linked to a respectable gaming news website, not my business what they publish but it seems *news*.
And like the old NO-CD fixes they make more people happy than not.
LoL ...I've read some trial and error post's, but they seem out of touch and lame to the point of only creating more errors.
I assume EA/Dice are aware of this error. It is not a GPU error (correct me if I am wrong) right?
