    Wow! This game sure looks fun. Is it any good you guys? Those FPS games can be intense, some guys on there can really wipe you out.

    I read there are people that actually base rape, spawn camp, rocket spam, noob tube spam, use "overpowered" weapons like PPSH, use vehicles a lot, take full advantage of all exploits and glitches, all around make life hard for you in this game. Those people make me want to ball up in a corner and QQ while I listen to my favorite emo music (I recommend The Cure). Don't worry though, I'm sure they will never get very far in this game or be a serious threat to anyone. We all know those neer-do-well base rapers will NEVER get ANYWHERE in THIS game, those dastardly brigands, pfft.

    What is the name of the TPU server again? I hope I can do okay there because this game sure looks hard to play man.

    Does anyone notice AMD cards take way longer than Nvidia cards to load BC2 maps?

    No cause they don't.

    I am all AMD and I am usually between the 2nd to 5th person on a map in every game I play.

    11000 post on the clubhouse, what do you think :D Just type TPU in your search bar, it should Pop up. Don't worry about being any good. I totally suck, but I have a blast. Nobody flames you for it, an occasional jab which are done in good humor so they don't sting. I also suggest going to Teamspeak and downloading their client and jump on TS. Then you can friend up with guys and play with other TPU'ers. If you have never done the Teamspeak thing it can throw you the first few times, because you are intimidated and don't want to say anything. Beer helped me thru that period. If you run into any issues bookmark this thread and comeback for help.
    Tomorrow and Saturday are pretty good nights for gaming. See yuh and Have fun Bro !

    Well I just got a pair of 6950's to replace my pair of 460 GTX's. Given everything else in my system remains the same, the 460's take like 3 seconds to load the map and I am always, always the first person on the map. With the 6950's it takes 6-7 seconds to load. Even back then when I have the 5970, it also took that long to load the map.

    Yeah. Where the hell have you been? Don't I know you from XS? (well Im going by avatar which I probably shouldn't do)

    I thought that was fixed a LONG time ago. I had one 460 for awhile maybe 5 months back and I didn't notice such a significant diff when I sold it and went back to ATI (may have kept and got another for SLI but it was only a 768).

    lol, I love how the others missed the sarcasm that is so blatantly screaming from your sig pic.


    yeah, certain drivers have good load speed, others not so much. I don't know whats what, but I load pretty slow.

    nah AMD cards are slower but not horribly so 10.4a drivers had the best load times of any AMD drivers since then load times got longer but not enough to really matter.

    Why is it not a problem with Nvidia drivers? Is it because Nvidia has some source of gaming alliance with DICE to which they gain advantage at optimizing load time?

    That would be me :D More proof I'm Chaotic Neutral.
    Can't even blame it on Budlight tonight.




    I hear if you have a Nvidia card you get a Black Helicopter too ;)
    That was true with the First Cyrsis though. That was the last
    Nvidia card I owned. 9800 GT as opposed to my 1950 pro.

    Welcome back CER! :toast:

    This is a good question but I doubt it's some conspiracy. If anything (and I don't think such "alliances" really happen much) that would be general performance or IQ related not a 4 vs 7 second load time.

    Speaking of image quality I would be curious to hear of your opinion of your nv cards vs amd. For the record, I swear the IQ has been getting better lately in BC2 with various Catalyst releases with 11.4 the best yet. It's subtle but I swear it's better. I wasn't expecting such really so I don't think it's wishful thinking or placebo.

    To be honest I don't see the difference in image quality between the two camps. They both look great at max details and 8x AA.

    Good deal see yuh Friday ! Hey Wrigley do you have
    a link to where to get the 11.4. I'd like to check it out.
    I went to AMD and couldn't find it.

    nvidia worked with them yes.


    ATI did have a fix in some older drivers to reduce the load time, but they've slowly crept up a little since then.

    Yep just figured that out Thanks !

    Update: Worked fine on my Win 7 machine and didn't work on
    my Vista machine. Run good with the 5670 on the 7 machine though.

    They don't make my anxious. Just hyper, fuzzy and happy. They don't effect my game play in one way or the other. Completely unchanged for me. Given the choice, I'll game high and not in pain, vs sober and in pain. lol.

    Identical in DX10 mode between the 580 and the 4870X2 for me. No increase in IQ on the X2 from game's release until last month for me. Virtually the same the entire time. Performance increases happened tho.
