We've balanced a lot of things since the beta, and hopefully sometime next month I will have time to write up a blog post on what we've changed. It's alot, and unfortunately I'm totally freaking swamped getting the game done. (It's gotta be done in January so Sony and Microsoft can certify it for release. PC version gets a bit more time since it doesn't need to go through cert, but it needs it so we can support ATI, nVidia, AMD, Intel, etc.)

:confused: :wtf:
I find it hilarious they need more time to support essential features for the game to actually run on the PC. Don't hold your breath folks after reading this there is no telling when the PC version will surface. Hopefully, it's on time and this was posted in error!

I don't think it take extra time to support Intel/AMD cpus, etc. :laugh:
To me this reads as if they are just getting started on the PC version. Not so much about them optimizing the game for the PC. I still find it odd there are no PC specific videos for this game and a demo is assumed to be released in a few weeks.

We won't know for sure till the games ship out. I don't think that they are starting only now since the beta will be up shortly, but you never know! If they take more time and give us something good (mass effect comes to mind) well it aint too bad waiting a lil more.

Oh I understand trust me and in a situation like that it makes sense if more features are added. However, the post quoted in the OP comes off different. IE: they need extra time to support cpus and video cards. Those are not added features which is why I created this thread. However, let's wait and see if the demo actually does come out in a few weeks or not. That will, IMO, tell the real story of where they are in development of this game. Again, I hope that information quoted in the OP was simply posted in error. :D

I guess we just have to cross our fingers.:toast:

But its sad really, I believe that in the future we'll get more and more games released after the initial console releases. How many games have done that? The main reason they have behind this is piracy, even though they shove us dumb excuses. Thats why i lol'ed when cod:mw2's xbox 360 release was leaked on torrents before the pc version!

Here(from Dec 1st):
A lot of you have been asking for the minimum hardware specs to run Frostbite games, more specifically for Battlefield Bad Company 2 & Battlefield 1943's minimum requirements, and today is the lucky day. Below, you likely skipped ahead and read them already, are the minimum and recommended hardware specs for running BFBC 2 and BF1943.



Minimum Frostbite PC Specifications for BFBC2 & BF1943
Processor: Core 2 Duo @ 2.0GHz
Main memory: 2GB
Graphics card: GeForce 7800 GT / ATI X1900
Graphics memory: 256MB
OS: Windows XP
Free HDD space: 15GB for Digital Version, 10GB for Disc Version (BFBC2)
10GB for Digital Version (BF1943)


Recommended Frostbite PC Specifications for BFBC2 & BF1943
Processor: Quadcore
Main memory: 2GB
Graphics card: GeForce GTX 260/ ATI Radeon 4870
Graphics memory: 512MB
OS: Windows Vista or Windows 7
Free HDD space: 15GB for Digital Version, 10GB for Disc Version (BFBC2)
10GB for Digital Version (BF1943)



So after reading this some of you might feel the need to update your list to Santa Claus or celebrating the power of your PC and e-manhood. Either way we hope this helps you prepare for the release of these epic Battlefield games! Now reserve here so you're ready! :)
Release for console versions is in march.

We wanted to update you, and slow the flood of tweets, on questions surrounding the BFBC2 PC Beta being cancelled. I'll get right to it and say "the BFBC2 PC Beta is not cancelled". Now this all started due to changes made to an earlier blog that removed the PC Beta from the details and the reason for this was the plan changed. With the huge success of the PS3 Beta we decided to drastically increase the PC Beta's capacity to insure as many people as possible could participate. Unfortunately this meant we had to delay the Beta to very early next year giving us more planning time to make it happen and implement more optimizations.

Here is a recap of the current PC features, and we can now confirm DX11 support with more details to come later!

PC Enhanced Features

Up to 32 Players on PC (24 on consoles) - Play with up to 32 players online in the biggest multiplayer Maps in Battlefield. Each with a different tactical and gameplay focus set across a variety of environments.

Full DirectX 9, 10 & 11 Support - Immerse yourself in the Battlefield world as Frostbite engine brings tanks, helicopters and explosions to vivid life on your PC. The game will fully support Windows XP, Vista, and 7 with new tech that further improves things like lighting and shadows.

Enhanced Gameplay - The PC version also includes wide peripheral support like Joysticks for flying, NVIDIA 3D Vision, Logitech LCD Keyboards and VoIP Support plus a variety of specific features tailored for PC play.

Friend Support - Find your friends online with the new buddy list to see if and who is online so you can quickly join their game.

Dedicated Ranked Server - Everyone gets non-stop action with no connection penalties based on some other player's internet. Ranked Server Provider program will give players opportunity to rent their own server(s) located in professional grade datacenters, ability to modify settings like map rotation, create reserved slots for friends or clan members, kick & Ban players, and custom name your ranked server.

Clan Support & Private Servers - Independent Clan Tag, and ability to rent servers for hosting and controlling private password protected competitive servers with expanded control over the settings from public ranked servers.

PC Squad Play System - Updated from previous Battlefield PC titles now gives control of your squad before heading into combat.

You are making a mountain out of a molehill, ECH.

Seems like its the case. But then, maybe they need more time to polish it after, cause betas are know to be bug fests. :)

There is a closed beta which I was to be a part of. Thats how I know my friend. :toast: However from what I hear they are going above and beyond with the PC version so there may in fact be a delay. But its for the good.

DICE basically wants to school IW with this game. Its almost personal with them from what I hear.

How so? Tsalking about the console versions has nothing to do with PC version, really, other than to explain the delay in Open beta launch. I do not get the same impression form the EA forum post...I hear him saying that the open PC beta is on hold ATM as they finalize the console versions to go out for qualification in early January. When that is done, the open pc beta will start. They can then dedicate the full team to the PC version, at least, assuming there are no issues with console qualification.


FYI, closed Beta of DICE games is generally months, if not longer, than open betas.

Actually no I am not, your quoted information was prior to the posted information in the OP (IE considered it an update if you will). I think this is a typical cause of blaming the messenger. I'm not the person who said what was quoted in the OP.

Simple, as I never mentioned or implied the console version :slap:.

True, but you are misinterpreting events here. ;) There is no indication in that post that the PC version is delayed, or anything. Open Beta Timing are not reflections on retail products....in fact, this is the same situation as 2142, beta-wise.

You suggest PC version may never come out, and I say that is not the case, and you are reading too much between the lines of that post.

It has nothing to do with the PC community. Its a pride/money thing. They have to one up IW to gain followers. That and IW talked a lot of trash at DICE. We are just benefitting from it :D

No its not. 2142 never hit the consoles so there was no threat of a crappy port.

Yes, but 2142 closed beta(which I was a part of, you know this) was MONTHS before open beta, which was just a short tiem before release. They actually changed very little from Open beta to retail...this is what I am getting at.

No, I am not as I said lets wait and see about the demo. I think you are misinterpreting my posts here. As this is the second time you are implied something I've not expressed. And, as TheMailMan78 mentioned there was no console version of BF2142.

As this is the second time you are implied something I've not expressed.
Don't hold your breath folks after reading this there is no telling when the PC version will surface. Hopefully, it's on time and this was posted in error!

To me this reads as if they are just getting started on the PC version. Not so much about them optimizing the game for the PC. I still find it odd there are no PC specific videos for this game and a demo is assumed to be released in a few weeks.

It's called NDA, #1. Only those shown previously to actually help on closed betas, are in current closed betas. Open beta will be just that...completely open. They will need to test server-side stuff fully, as well as a small bit of quality-control, so there will be a bit-by-bit addition of beta players.

PC version has DX9, DX10, and DX11. The call for DX11-based pcs for the closed beta weas some time ago, FYI. Consoles are not subject to three codepaths, and as such, will tkae more testing. Like really, ECH, I was shocked by your post, hence my reaction. Nevermind I do not beleive you to be correct, nor do I beleive the post indicated any issues that might affect the release.

And, as TheMailMan78 mentioned there was no console version of BF2142.
I could care less about console versions. I'm only talking about PC versions. I'm on the PS3 closed beta, but hate using a controller. Based on what I saw on the PS3, there's little work left.

No hard feelings dude, I just think you are wrong.

Here's teh full post:

The UAV1 replaces the role of the laser designator from BC1. It's powerful, but only 1 can be deployed and it can be shot down.

We've changed the mortar strike to use binoculars, so you can zoom in on that tank or sniper and call hell down on their heads. Or just pull it up and spot targets if you're using a shotgun or a low zoom scope.

We've balanced a lot of things since the beta, and hopefully sometime next month I will have time to write up a blog post on what we've changed. It's alot, and unfortunately I'm totally freaking swamped getting the game done. (It's gotta be done in January so Sony and Microsoft can certify it for release. PC version gets a bit more time since it doesn't need to go through cert, but it needs it so we can support ATI, nVidia, AMD, Intel, etc.)

Post is from two days ago. Where's the indication of delay?

It is possible the post was accurate, but like 4 months old and whoever posted is just way behind.

:laugh:
Your posts are getting nonsensical and off topic here. None of what you said made any sense to why you've replied to my post. Earlier, you misinterpret aspects of my post now you are posting this just to argue. :slap:
Here read this:
I find it hilarious they need more time to support essential features for the game to actually run on the PC. Don't hold your breath folks after reading this there is no telling when the PC version will surface. Hopefully, it's on time and this was posted in error
If there is a PC closed beta out then it would make the information quoted in the OP in error then.
Which clearly debunks your opinion which you clearly misunderstood. :D

Exactly, I find it rather funny that cadaveca is taking this so seriously.

This is why...lol...what's to misunderstand?

And I'm not taking it so serious, dude, that's just my personality. I think you are taking a comment as to why there are things in the current console betas that have been changed...to mean that the pc version will be delayed. As my quote above of you says.

Conversation man, that's all this is. You may call my posts off-topic, when really, PC version does need more testing than consoles...this is a given. The post you originally quoted said jsut this..that the pc version needs more work. It didn't say "from ths point on"...
