    Indeed. Has an AMTRAC too. I know we have a lot of Kharg fans here but I am burnt on that map.

    Thanks this is good info. Also the speed at which the flag lowers increases with each friendly in the cap area as most probably know. But it also works the same for enemies in the area with the speed at which it raises. And if you pay attention for awhile you can start to gauge just how many that is based on how fast it is moving.

    Sad but true, that an Kharg both are, too many maps now days are hallways and streets, those are 2 of the only maps that are actually open.

    So I won't be getting my new GPU for awhile. Decided on a TV for the Loft instead. I'll be able to game on it too, 55".
    That's OK though , then I can wait for the GPU smoke to clear before deciding. And no MM I won't be getting a GTX 680:laugh:

    Got my 7950 running and installed BF3 setting at Ultra. Or should it be high? Seams to run ok. Looks awesome. Is there a frame counter?

    try high, see if that doesn't play a bit smoother. With my single 6950, I run medium default settings except textures @ high. Or try high with textures set to ultra...


    Staying above 60 FPS really hleps my scoring, dunno if that's going to be the same for everyone.
    Jetster says thanks.

    I like to run above 50fps in BF3, anything below that and I can feel it real bad. Ultra and 2x AA seems to keep the fps afloat for me. I definately go for frame rates before details, my friend has an average pc and he sets all his games to high, and they run at 20-40fps, combine that with a 200DPI mouse and I find his PC unplayable. :banghead: :D :roll:



    Fraps

    Fraps isn't necessary.

    You just have to hit the ~ key to enter the console, and type: render.drawfps 1
    then hit enter, and ~ again to exit the console mode.

    At stock he should most likely be able to run Ultra (with no HBAO and 2x MSAA) and maybe see 50 fps as a min. Once OC'd though, Even with 4x MSAA and HBAO on I never see under 60 fps, it might happen from time to time, but I haven't ever noticed it. Granted I do have a 7970, so his frames might be a bit lower, but these cards really are great.
    Jetster and cadaveca say thanks.

    I'd tell you but it's hard to do without breaking the "no insults" rule.

    Thanks I knew I could count on you :rockout:
    So I did all that and still didn't work. Went to punkbuster and downloaded
    PB and updated it that way and it seems to be working now. So far any way.

    Damn I hate when I happen to come upon an enemy with his back turned and before I can even think "knife him!" I am shooting the guy in the back. Well, better than being in his shoes but still. I did get the same dude later on a forward swipe actually as he had low health.

    Also yesterday watched a teammate get knifed but may not have been quite close enough to then knife that guy so played it safe and shot him. It would have been hilarious to get him the same way right in succession like that. Oh well; woulda been a for sure, easy melee kill in BC2.

    So I only play on the weekends mainly and have to ask if anyone else thinks the patch nerf'd the choppers guided rockets? Used to own with the guided rockets and haven't been able to register a hit with them. Range is gone and quite honestly they are worthless now.

    Anyone else?

    Played 6 rounds of SQDM, wanted to unlock my L85A2, won 5 of the 6, had some amazing rounds, but this one is the best of them all

    http://battlelog.battlefield.com/bf3/battlereport/show/28015123/1/175441797/

    First time I have played SQDM in BF3 and first time I have ever used the AK-74m, SQDM sure is a good way to up the KPM of a weapon... Got the L85 unlocked and tried it a bit, sadly doesn't seem to fit my playstyle, maybe it would be better with unlocks, but it seemed to have high recoil while ADS with no unlocks.

    And on another note, was in this Karkand yesterday where at 100 tickets left for our team they capped every single flag (never has this happen while being defender) and we had to watch the tickets run out, team was so bad :( But I had a great round :p

    What is really great is to be chasing them then watch him spin the guy around knifing him and do the exact same thing. I think that is what you are talking about and I did get to do that once on Caspian Border at Forest right between the crate and rock. It was funny because he was chasing my team mate right on his ass and I was chasing him for the same reason to run him down and knife him. Then it was back to back knifes. Guess I should of saved my guy, but thought I could get to him before he got to my guy.
