    I was suppose to be thinking about stuff????

    My train of thought for this game when I am just playing for fun is as followed

    Murder
    Murder
    Murder
    Take the Flag
    Its an M-com thinky
    WTF, don't care
    Murder
    Murder

    Repeat.

    But if I am playing so that everyone has fun I actually, like deduce stuff and plan things.....then get side track with revenge for comrades.

    I have an issue with Overgrowth and Undergrowth. Being allowed to mess with that graphically independent of other things would be cheating cause it would make people hiding in the tall grass stick out like a elephant in suburban swimming pool.

    I did some of my own testing since I thought the same thing... but it wasnt quite as bad as I thought. The levels are more related to detail as opposed to volume/quantity.

    we had a thread about mouse DPI, and it was interesting to see that pretty much no two people agreed. There was a decent amount that used 800 dpi ('stock') on their mice, and tons of people (mostly razer users) who ran at max DPI.

    im sure there will be guys running around without any plants bushes and trees on their screen soon.

    took counterstrike many years to try and get it right and it still isnt.

    the drunker I am the better I fly in BF2 - Wake Island, I ran 3 bombing runs upside down while totally pissed out of my nut & the stupid thing is I actually hit my targets 100% when I wasnt even looking or trying to see what I was trying to hit. I even flew to the carrier for a baserape (yeah - Sorry guys) & took out both their AA guns that were shootin at me while still flying upside down before I got confused with the controls & crashed into the sea.

    Might as well have a hack that makes the enemies 250 feet tall, and hitboxes to match.

    Thank god for singleplayer games.:nutkick:

    I think the introduction of wider FOV with eyefinity is gonna cause many issues for people. I mean...I paid more, so I get more. Works well for me. But I can see how it could be construed as unfair...

    And if ya got it, even more so..cause...man...it's screwed up. The fisheye is something else, I tell ya...it makes it worthless.

    If you have Fisheye, then your FOV is too high. Bring it down until things appear normal again.

    yeah I posted there.

    I think the reason for the Razer fan boys using the max DPI is because thats what they bought the mice for. if they were like me they had the game sensitivity at max (with a stock mouse) and weren't satisfied and therefore got more sensitive mice. (well my theory anyway)

    as for the changing the foliage quality, I play on all low (everything-everything) to max my frame rates, and I can tell you, if anything, its harder to see people (I have played on high btw) since there is less detail but equal quantities, it becomes blocky and hard to see through.
    (and its not the greatest rendering to begin with)

    however you will always have those pesky hackers and their chams (oh wait, that's what "Q" is for. nvm)

    ON that note, I bough tthe 400DPI because of 2560x1600(as I said in that thread too), and then needing to move my hand less to move the mouse further...greatly helped when I had carpal tunnel.


    In regards to viewability, medium is the best, high is just too much distraction with all it's prettiness.

    right so under/overgrowth settings only change QUALITY, not how much is there? excellent!


    now all i need is answers to the FOV questions.


    edit: stock FOV for Cod4 in 16:9 is 81, so i used that. i do like it, feels more natural.

    I will test it myself cause I have seen videos of the Super Spot. While the lower details makes everything blocky, it was painfully obvious when stuff did not fit into the blocky world....you know....the people I am trying to kill who are still set at high detail. So you look and go "that thing is 4 generations of graphics newer looking than all the other stuff...shoot it" but I digress it is a none issue here.

    DPI is subjective to the user so I have never considered it an advantage. I personal need only 2 DPI settings, 800 and something higher like 1600, because some situations I prefer the higher res.

    FOV as of now cannot be used to cheat. When you go behind your monitor and screen resolution's ability, you get a fish eye effect where only stuff directly in front of you looks normal. Everything else looks like it is stretched out. My FOV is currently set slightly too high so my sights are off the further away the target is, but I will fix that today.

    In general, standard monitor should stick with the 55 and wide should go with 75 to 80.

    oh, another note, view distance does change with settings, but not enough to matter (even when sniping) with the exception of the Heli. the RU Heli has a horrible glare on low (also has to do with stock brightness settings) I cut my brightness by a third and it helped alot, but I still have some trouble spotting enemy Heli's at a distance.

    BTW, does anybody notice that the two countries aircraft handle significantly different? (still balance, but different)

    WAY different. the tanks are too, and seem ot ahve differnt damage they can take as well. I'm pretty impressed by it all, and so disappointed with the bugs on the server side. I loved how many things say it's a punkbuster issue, but I am doing nothing other than playing the game, so I shouldn't have issues, unless teh server client's PB is kicking people for hacking, and not doing it right.

    a lot of it is confusion. punkbuster reports everything, including connection drops, and kicks.

    people read the logs and get confused when it says punkbuster dropped connection, etc. that's just PB reporting, not causing. not saying none of the problems are PB, I KNOW some are - but it's not as wide and random as it's made out to be.

    yeah for example, your net lagged out and PB data was missed due to packet loss - bam, PB kicks you (or just reports that you were kicked if you had large amounts of loss)


    People blame PB, servers, everything - its often just router/internet issues. i had tons of drops the other day, funnily enough it was during a thunderstorm with flash flooding, i wonder why my net connection may have been unstable..

    I've never had a PB kick, that I know of. get lots that fit within that timeframe though...and I'm more than used to PB issues, unfortunately.


    however, I know FOR A FACT, that a certain type of issue I get is caused by a hack being used on the server. It's like the hack gets the player data instead of the server, and this causes the kick.

    They have always been like that. It is both realistic and a Battlefield staple.
