    ok guys, in about 1.5 hours the teamspeak server should be back online. i am updating to the latest ubuntu and it is taking a long time.

    the server is back up right now but will go down again for a minute when the ubuntu update is complete.

    from now on please reference:

    easyrhino.homelinux.com:9987

    as the official address.

    The latest Ubuntu is Freaking Awesome!!!!! I Love Ubuntu!!!
    I like the new theme, the Software Center, the ability to access all my social networks from the desktop, the empathy IM client, Evolution, all from the desktop. The splash screen too. What are your likes dislikes?

    Made mine a lot better. I am running the 4000 series though.
    Went from 1.55 min 1.0 min to 15/20 seconds.

    15/20 secs, thats sounds about right for me, I guess I never got the loading issue with BC2, cause thats how long it has always taken the game to load,:rolleyes:

    i load in 15 seconds or so the first round, later rounds i see the tail end of the 15s delay timer and people are just spawning as i do - so 10-15s sounds just right.

    Use the updater. Should do it automatically if you launch BC2 from the Games folder.

    Played some last night on a Thailand server with Marineborn, he has been crying about how bad his connection is to the US and has thrown out a few challenges to try playing half way around the world, and I finally bit. Connection seemed great, had a 16/5 a 10/2 and a few other amazing rounds, think my worst round was a 2.0 KDR, love this game, playing with people half way around the world and not lagging at all.

    The netcode really works well to make high ping playing possible :D if only they could fix the hit detection!

    I'm tired of hearing my UMP bullet rock someone in the head (that nice satisfying "ping!") when they are standing still looking the other direction only to have them turn around and take me down to half health before a kill shot registers. >.<

    SO.... after picking up a 5970 I've been testing BC2 fairly extensively and no matter what I do I cannot get this game to run higher than 60% usage on each GPU. I even clocked my CPU over 4Ghz and it made little to no difference. I'm running DX11 4xAA 8xAF everything on High (med audio to alleviate CPU stress) and HBAO on. An average run in a 32 player server is about 45, 110, 75 (min, max, avg) but I cannot get the GPU usage any higher...

    So for anyone else running crossfire 5000 series or a 5970, please let me know which drivers and catalyst application profiles you're using.

    Maybe I'm crazy but I was hoping to average 90fps all maxed out with this card.

    -1Kurgan1- I was waiting on you GPU usage numbers as well.... hint hint

    I forgot to check, but last time I did fraps my session (on my old windows with low performance) I had 80fps as my average, so thats not a good sign that your seeing 75, I also had twice as much AA and AF and max audio.

    @ 2560x1600 8xAA 16xAF, I get usual 80%+ per card(except for snow maps, that one rush one that wasn't in the demo is @ 99% almost all the time), and dips up and down depending on what I'm looking at. Using the official 10.4 driver, and the Apr07 Profiles. Dual 5870 1GB.

    @ 5870x1080, and 2xaa and 16xAF, I get 99% with very few dips below that.

    Ok, I must be doing something wrong then. Ill try purging CCC from the registry and some other stuff. The odd thing is that all my benchmarks are scoring where they should. FML

    It looks like your GPU load is varying by resolution.. since im only at 1920x1080 I shouldnt expect 99% usage I suppose.

    Yeah, resolution is definately a big part of it. It's actually good timing for you to ask, as I've been doing TONNES of games testing with these cards investigating performance differences with the new bios I got from XFX. Unless I'm running eyefinity or high AA, 2 cards pretty much destroys everything out there.

    Yep, and its sexy.

    I am using Cat 10.4 officials, and I havent even tried any profiles yet, and wasn't using them before when I had 80fps average.

    Maybe its time for a new windows, I didn't want to, but I finally took the plunge and I don't regret it at all.
