    if i commit to this game it means it will be the only game i play for a year. it seems like people are more willing to throw down a bunch of cash now instead of paying per month. we need 5 solid people paying to get the server off the ground and not have it put a dent in all of our wallets. again, i will front the cash.

    I said it when you first mentioned getting a server; I am willing/able to do $5-$10 monthly for the next year. I know I will play this game for at least 12 months even if it’s more and more casual the more stuff I unlock. Bare minimum for me is 2-3 hours a day anyway haha.

    i guess i worded it wrong ... i didn't necessarily mean to start it off (as i did say) it doesn't matter if the money gets held and applied each month - it's not the main issue but just paying $5-10 each month is going to be a pita tbh. and if you do it paypal recurring or anything else you'll get hit with a charge each time.

    i would even go $60 for 6 months, but I can't commit to a year, or $120 over a year. when times get tighter i clamp down and cancel all subs - I wouldn't want to leave you hanging, is the other concern.

    so however it gets applied i would rather pay a lump sum than monthly - and either way a full year is not something i can commit to without having the possibility of me just ... disappearing

    does the place have a tri-monthly, or semi-annual deal? you might even save that way!

    I'm wondering if someone can help me out.

    When I force the game to run in DX9 I get flicking/tearing across the screen as though AFR (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alternate_Frame_Rendering) inst working properly. The corruption I see if segments of the upper screen showing across the middle of the screen. I have isolated this to happen only with Crossfire enabled in DX9.

    Can someone else with a crossfire setup test this out please.

    THX.

    I had to turn off Cataylst AI in CCC to stop the flickering graphics on water and weapons. looks just as good but no flicker :)

    from what "themailman" says, prone actually means stance, not necessarily the laying down stance. video games have come to use it for that, but that's not the actual meaning.

    In every other game I've tried this with crossfire would get disabled when disabling Catalyst AI. I'll check some GPUz logs and FPS logs to see if crossfire is actually getting disabled with Catalyst AI. I know disabling Catalyst AI fixes the flickering on the water but this is a completely different form of corruption. I'll try to get a screenshot of what I'm talking about.

    @ Scrizz- they mean crouched.

    that is weird. someone else mentioned that too - i've never ever had that. what windows are you on? im on 7 x64 - I open CCC go to crossfire, enabled. check to disable AI, say apply, ok. restard CCC - crossfire still on AI still off.

    Not getting the tearing i normally get when Crossfire is disabled, so i have to assume it is also working.

    this is interesting ... sorry :)

    edit: i have no idea what stance. maybe just crouch, maybe prone could still be added - i doubt that though. I like prone with slow tactical games, but online multiplayer , i'd never use it anyway (not to say no one else would :)

    I'm also using W7 x64 so I dont think it's an OS issue. I will try the latest drivers though I doubt it will make a difference.

    i did notice that BC2 only gives me the option of 1680x1050@59hz
    it doesn't give me an option for the full 60hz. That might be a problem.

    You can change that in the settings.ini in the folder in your documents, I was going to do it, but figured I'll leave it be for now.

    I will switch to DX9 tonight and give it a shot, see what happens. But why run in DX9, your setup should be good for just about maxed DX10 settings.

    DICE has stated that the flickering light (seen only on reflective surfaces) will be fixed on the retail version.

    Still not the same issue I'm trying to resolve.

    Yeah I'm just dealing with the flickering water as I assumed that would be fixed, flickering windows too. Easiest way to deal with a flickering window.. toss a health pack through it, lol!

    I do, I just been frustrated with trying to get it working in game, also hate headsets, I usually wear it around my neck with the mic aimed up and use my speakers. I'm planning to get a usb bluetooth receiver and use my PS3 mic for release since I can actually stand wearing that.

    I also like the fact that you can deform the terrain.
    now it really looks like a warzone

    Yeah I used to hate mics but now I have to use my headset to game. I can hear everything without annoying my wife or neighbors. I had used a crappy Logitech Clearchat Pro for almost 2 years until I received my PC350s this passed xmas. Not the best pure audio headset but the best headset with a mic IMO. And they don't look half bad.
