    When you download/install the game using Origin, you have an option to keep the installation file. If you did not use that, I am afraid you will have to re-download it.

    I could be wrong, though

    All the reason you listed on why you like BF3 and the punks that play on COD games are hard to take.
    To many teenagers and little kids. Who doesn't hate to hear a 10 year old screaming when they wax your ass :roll:

    to me, they are undeserving of their accolades. I can accept subjective opinion, and different people want different things - but for a work that is truly subpar on a technical level to be considered the best game in the world is just too much for me. i don't see it as an ip worthy of billions of dollars, and i get upset that potentially more deserving ips are left in the dust in order to release a yearly version of CoD.

    I don't think people hate CoD as much as they hate what Activision is doing to CoD. They are basically doing what they did with Guitar Hero, and it will probably have the same outcome. What inevitably happens is the publisher decides getting a new version of the game to the market is necessary, but adding no and compelling features is not. This leaves us buying basically the same game, on the same engine, in a brand new package.

    One could make the argument that discussing the direct competitor to this game is in fact on topic. Point taken though.

    Found a stupidly good setup today, F2000 + Foregrip + Heavy Barrel. Joined a game with newbsandwich and managed to be 19-3 before the other team starting pushing us and I dipped to like 27-9. The F2000 is basically an M416 (my favorite gun) with a higher rate of fire. Kinda silly how quickly you can mow through people with that thing.

    New Battlefield Blog Post: Going Back to Karkand #4: The design idea behind the themed expansion pack

    BY: HBrun POSTED : Nov 11, 2011, 12:00AM

    Are you ready to take a closer look at our first upcoming expansion pack, Battlefield 3: Back to Karkand? Read on for the first Back to Karkand trailer and the Lead Designer's thoughts on the idea behind this themed expansion pack.

    [yt]TyN_Zjw4l-s[/yt]

    As you may or may not know, there will be even more Battlefield 3 goodness coming your way this December. Right now, a separate team here at DICE is hard at work wrapping up the first expansion pack Battlefield 3: Back to Karkand. Utilizing the power of the Frostbite 2 engine, the Back to Karkand expansion pack remasters four of the greatest Battlefield maps in the franchise: Strike at Karkand, Wake Island, Gulf of Oman and Sharqi Peninsula. Last week, we released the first gameplay trailer from Back to Karkand, and you can watch it again above.

    First Back to Karkand previews online
    Also, the first Back to Karkand media previews have started to appear online, so keep your eyes peeled. Here's a great preview by IGN, aptly named "BF3's Back to Karkand Destroys the Classics." And we also have Gamespot's impressions of playing on Gulf of Oman and Strike at Karkand, with some explosive footage to go with it.

    Strike at Karkand, we meet again.

    Lead Designer Niklas Fegraeus on the design
    The design idea for the expansion pack was to let players revisit these classic maps as if time had passed by since they last played them in Battlefield 2. This will be apparent on all maps, but one prime example is on Gulf of Oman. Close to the beach, this new version of the all-time classic map sees a group of luxury villas erected by someone who wants to turn this piece of land into a paradise for vacationers. Now that war is once again coming to the region, those plans are likely to be ground quickly to a halt. Another example is Wake Island. Next to the airport, a conference building has been constructed. But the only conferences held there this Winter will likely be of the highly destructive kind. We met with Back to Karkand Lead Designer Niklas Fegraeus for a chat on his vision for these reimagined maps:

    "I want returning players to get the sense that these are cool new maps, and then suddenly realize they know them by heart. The feeling should be new, but the actual map layout the same as before. For newcomers, these are simply four brilliant maps", said Niklas.

    Besides getting an artistic makeover, the Back to Karkand team is also making sure the new maps take full advantage of Frostbite 2, including the ability to turn most of the maps into rubble. Do you think you are safe hiding inside the buildings of these classic maps? Think again!

    But Back to Karkand is much more than just remastered maps. This expansion pack also includes five new dog tags, five new achievements/trophies (if you’re on 360 or PS3), three new vehicles, 10 classic Battlefield weapons and a new persistence system where players complete assignments to earn their rewards. We will return once a week starting now to give you more details on these additions together with more images and videos.

    [​IMG]
    The artistic direction in Battlefield 3: Back to Karkand has been to reimagine these all-time classic maps as if time has passed a few years since we last visited them. That, and to add crazy amounts of destruction.

    As always, if you pre-ordered your copy of Battlefield 3: Limited Edition, you are entitled to Back to Karkand at no extra charge and will be notified once it is available for download and play in December. Anyone else can buy it on the very same launch day for $14.99/1200 Microsoft Points, or the equivalent in their local currency. PlayStation 3 players will have exclusive 1 week early access to Back to Karkand.

    Come back next week for more details on Back to Karkand.

    It's configurable on the Origin settings page, but it never saved the BF3 installer there, for me.
    Either it saved it somewhere's else, or it's bugged.

    I want to install this game on my other pc but it keeps asking me to download it even if i move the game files. Dont know what to do.
    On the flip side i just ordered another 5870 2 gb so bf3 should run better.
    I was messing arround wuth some settings and i found AA and AF filters off and lighting on low and habo off i was getting 60+100fps with all other settings maxed.

    you can't just copy the installed game, you'd need the installation files that origin deletes after you install. downloading again is the option sorry :(

    Fixed :laugh:.


    I too will be taking a break from this game, most likely won't be playing until Back to Karkand is released as there are too many good games coming out along the way and so far BF3 feels like a grind when trying to find a good server to join so I will leave all that for now and hopefully it gets better when I feel like popping heads again.

    It should be C:\Program Files\Origin Games\Battlefield 3 or in C:\Program Filesx86\Origin Games\Battlefield 3, There should be a Installer folder,Just copy paste/backup(external Hard drive of 64 gig usb stick) the BF3 folder and when you want to reinstall just put it back in the C:\Program Filesx86\Origin Games\.Start Origin and it should tell you it is ready to install.You can make sure the settings is set for what Drive you want also NEVER click the CLEAR GAME INSTALLERS tab.Also make sure you have KEEP GAME INSTALLER checked in settings.
