    Got a new keyboard (Logitech illuminated) since my new board doesn't have a PS/2 port and now I can't jump while holding shift+w. Shift+q or e still works and if I double tap w to sprint I can jump and sprint. Anyone have any ideas? Is there a windows setting that can remedy this? Or is this a hardware issue with my USB keyboard?

    I loved BF2142.
    Hope 2142 will be just as awesome or better.

    You know - I never got into BF2, but I did play BF2142 for about a year. First online game for me. Had a lot of fun! One thing I liked about the game was that each team had a Commander. This is one element that I say is missing from BF3. I play random servers between 11:00 pm - 4:00 am Alaska Standard time and notice that most games I play do not have that many players in a squad. This really sucks. It is too sad that they do not have servers that make squading-up mandatory (as they did with some of the BF2142 servers I played). This combined with a Commander (to help coordinate the squade) would be nice:)

    Ahh the early days of battlefield. I loved it when it was released but at that time I had my head so far up Counter Strike's ass that I didn't get to be very high of level. I wished they would release one last patch that fixes the hit detection and how well it scales widescreen and it would be much more playable.

    Has anyone noticed that the B2K maps are more GPU intense than regular BF3 maps or is it just me?

    Yeah, noticed as well. Like, the original maps, there's very little difference between medium and ultra. New B2K maps, there's a vert significant difference between medium and ultra, to me.

    There is far more destruction debris and things like smoke, dust, etc on the B2K maps. Maybe becuase of all teh sand-based maps, not sure.

    Of course, your VGA cannot play @ Ultra. Neither can mine. But when I add the second card...it becomes somewhat playable.

    I'm actually hoping 7970 can play ultra settings without needing another VGA to help it. Then i might buy one.

    um no. if anything, chopper will get a nerf on the b2k maps. Trip and I have been tearing up pretty much any server we join.

    went 50/8, next game was 49/8. you just need a good pilot/gunner combo with Voip.

    I don't notice a perf diff on B2K. Though I have a decent amount of GPU horsepower for my settings; it's my CPU that's kinda choking.

    And if you were talking about one last patch for BF2 that fixes "hit detection and widescreen" they did. 1.50 released in 9/2009:

    Trip isn't just a pilot. He's THE PILOT. He's like Tom Cruise but not as homoerotic.

    any pilot that thinks he has skill in bf3 would get bent over in a instant from a veteran 1942 desert combat pilot without blinking you would be on fire without even knowing wtf happened, you aint got no lame flares, or smoke, or bullshit! you rely on pure skill and speed and maneuverability i usta be one of the best harrier pilots in all of desert combat, no cheap tricks pure skill.

    KIDS THESE DAYS and there flare and smoke and...crap.....i broke 4 high end joysticks playing desert combat, thats what kinda pilots we were...lol.......sorry
