    what about all the digs at modern warfare 2? "pansies with heartbeat sensors" and "if this was a snowmobile..."


    do a search for sydney and add all the servers there to favourites. Also, make sure you dont have any filters (show full, show empty) - servers are full a lot, which is why you're only seeing foreign ones.

    i'd be checking your net connection, or disabling Upnp in your router. i have no problems at all except for server downtimes.

    I was wondering how you get the Garand ? I have all the BF games except 2142. I heard you can get the unlock if you have the keycodes ? I kind of remember hearing this on one of the threads, but I can't find it. Thanks !

    Since I bought my copy from Steam, I didn't get a manual, not even a PDF version:mad:

    Does anyone know of an online version? This same crap happend with BF2, I even tried getting a replacement manual using my warranty. A hearty "up yours" was my only response from Steam/EA.

    Um googling "bfbc2 manual" brings up plenty of links...

    http://forums.electronicarts.co.uk/...ny-2-pc/915107-bfbc2-manual-up-everybody.html

    As for the Garand I have it but only once did it appear in my loadout on some random server I now don't remember. I have read that it is banned server-side most places. Can the admins at TPU server confirm or deny that?

    I wish the TPU server was hardcore, as hardcore is more realistic. None of this it takes 6-8 shots from an AK to kill someone(unrealistic)

    When I'm not in the TPU server I'm playing hardcore and never noticed to many snipers.

    Also, if you did make it hardcore I'm sure you can restrict how many recon classes a team can have so you can limit snipers.

    Just a thought...

    I find the same thing true, for the unrelasticness,

    for the snipers there are lots of snipers, just lots of them suck so it doesnt make a difference ;-). and truly if you got shot in the chest by a sniper you would die expecially if it was a 50 cal.

    Thanks for the links. I must add, this manual is worthless. It took me a while when I was playing medic to realize that I had to unlock my med kit and paddles. I kept scrolling through my weapons wondering "what the heck." The manual doesn't even explain stuff like that. [rant]When I was a boy games came with really detailed manuals, sometimes two, and ususally a quick links card, and a nice big box, something to hold onto. Devs these days are worried more about trees than providing a worthwhile product. Well, I can remember the time when...[/end rant]

    Gotta chime in and say I'm having a ball with this game on Aussie servers, currently using the medkit for bulk heals+revives, and the Saiga with a 12 shot clip, double ammo pack and the WWII M1911.

    Fun all the time with a spectrum ranging from downright hilarious on-a-roll ownage, to double-fist-hitting-table rage. excellent game hahaha

    lmao, i truly have never read a manual for a game in my life, you can find something out easily if not it will be easier to just find the answer on the internet, that might be why there not making them detailed anymore

    Haha...you're a knifing machine! :laugh:

    I've had it happen multiple times now, when I play on servers with a ping above 100, my knife does not register 5 times out of 10. I see the blood, their head move back, but they don't die! I love to melée but I can only do it half the time on the TPU server. :mad:

    Have you tried the ea chat and talking with them about it?

    The server admin tool is pretty useless right now, it can change the map, but sometimes it doesnt even want to do that, and you can only change to the next map in the order its set in, and you can't change the order.

    Either way, it's a videogame, it's meant to have a sense of realism, but not be realistic, defib's ain't going to do crap to someone who got shot up or hit with a tank shell. Health packs don't work in real life, and a suit case isn't going to supply ammo very well.

    I'm not sure why some people want hardcore, and how hardcore they want it, cause honestly if people want maps turned off, then I'm done playing Medic, not worth my time to run out and hit a corpse with paddles to find out he's not on my team, or to not be able to realize someone is dead or needs a health pack that is in my vicinity that I can't see at that time.

    Even on normal servers, it just gets annoying playing in anything but a 32 player game. I notice any game with 20 or less people is sniperfest, all people do is hide and take pot shots at the few that actually want to play the game. And hardcore makes it even worse.

    The way I look at how the bullet damage works in games is like this. 1 shot for anything to the chest will kill someone most of the time, maybe it won't kill you now, but you will most likely die soon. So when it takes 2 body shots by a sniper rifles, or 6 - 8 by a PP2000 those would be the shots to completely end someones life, right then and there, no running off and bleeding out. Which makes sense to me, the games not completely realistic, but it's close enough for me to be happy.

    I have exactly the same problems.
    I can play fine on 16 player server (squad dm), but I often lose connection when there are about 25+ players.

    Yeah this works apparently. I input my BF2 key and tried out Heroes for another one at which point I had a vet rank of 1. Emailed them my BF1942, Road To Rome and Vietnam keys that the site wouldn't take and now my vet rank is 4.

    And by the way, while there are probably multiple causes, the only time Ive had CTD was when I tried turning up my overclock the other day (and which was memetest, 1 hour Prime and 3 runs of 3dmark stable) but got constant CTDs until I turned it back down. This game seems extremely sensitive to any instability...

    Yeah, I know exactly what you mean, going for tags like I said is a suicide mission, not only do you risk them turning around and shooting you or someone spawning on them and spotting you, or knifing them and having your original target spot you. But you also risk running dead up on them and sinking the knife straight in, and not having it kill them, then they heard you stab them, turn and stab you since theres that small cooldown (lame) or shoot you. Sadly it happens quite a bit, getting shot I say "crap", but getting stabbed after I clearly stabbed someone who was standing still and having them live to stab me makes me angry. If we are in a knife fight I'm fine, because I'm sure they connected with me as much as I did with them and didn't have it register since we are both sending info to the server.

    Yeah, I mean BF2 is old, 1942 and Vietnam are even older, I've heard a lot of people get them re0registered, they can't always expect domains to not go down and such and I have heard they are pretty good about it. I got a copy of Vietnam off ebay, was looking for a non-registered copy but almost everyone selling them wasn't sure if theirs was registered, so I just said screw it and bought one, if it don't register I'll talk to EA about it.

    If you got shot in the leg with a .50 cal you would die,because of hydraulic shock.Basically the vacuum caused by the bullet as it passes through sucks the blood from the rest of your body causing instant death.My mate who as in the army told me.
