I declare this game the most buggiest title of the year
Its also one of the most owange shooters I have ever played in my 10+ years of Multiplayer First Person Shooters. If the game had the ability to peek I would really cum.
Im assuming you have NOT played skyrim yet....
Patch applied normally for me but no improvements on "buggyness". BFBC2 was heaven compared to this. I got 2 crashes so hard that my machine stopped responding. "improved load times" my ass. Same if not worse. On top of it you're no longer put in a squad, you'll have to manually find your place.
I finally got it to update I uninstalled origin and deleted ALL folders that pertain to origin and BF3 then downloaded origin again then copied over my saved install from my main rig, After starting origin for the first time, I clicked install and it did a full install of BF3 then I clicked repair install which checked all the files then once it was done it started the patch update! Should be playing soon!
Man...if I was gonna go through all that I'd better be on the clock too! lol
It couldn't have to do with all of your special Windows "tweaks" that you do could it? Naaaaahh.
Got the patch late last night and played a few rounds. All is well.
I didn't said unstable (but AS WELL)
i said the buggiest ... you have to have a "beta tester's eye" to notice it however
I haven't seen one part of this game without a bug ... seriously it's too much to recall it one by one to write it down.
The unstable parts:
- game sometimes freezes after loading new level
- alt-tab is screwd up totally
- random CTD no error (appears to gone away due to server side patching)
I had no issues with the update and was playing afterwards with no problems.
No problems with update here either.
Im not talking about the update, talking about the whole game, patch is a step forward ... only one step of many.
Thanx, my install was hanging on Battlelog @ waiting for you to complete installation. Restarted Origin and patch is d/l normally
I can find bugs in any game. There's nothing in BF3 that is dealbreaking for me or takes away from the game experience. Great game.
I think you're confusing BF3 and Skyrim.
Only 2 things from over 150 on the list were fixed in patch1, not to mention undocumented bugs.
just out of head now .... guided shels on tanks are completely broken. ... how many things can i think of
I may have just wasted my money i'm getting lower fps in bf3 with 2 cards :shadedshu
I get better fps in heaven bench and 3dmark 11 so id it just the game it self?
You should definitely be getting better fps, I get a good 30-40 extra fps when using crossfire.
I guess dont play the game then if all these bugs bother you so much. Most of the crew here enjoyed the game before the patch and shall continue to enjoy it. There is nothing in-game that makes this title unplayable in MP, maybe a few annoyances, but no dealbreakers.
For a game that has been out less than a month, I for one think they are doing great and can't wait for Back to Karkand to drop.
yeah 40-60% core load both cards 20-40fps... before i was getting 50-100+ do i need to do a drive wipe and if so and some1 link me a good program.
AN-94 sucks so bad compared to the one in BF:BC2...
Follow this guide: http://www.techpowerup.com/forums/showthread.php?t=52502
Use 11.11 whql and CAP2
Be sure to disable ULPS in the registry. -Do this last, if you need help with it let me know.
Wow, there is a noticeable decrease in frame rates now after the patch. I'm not the only one who noticed this. Here's another thread discussing it. I've checked all my settings, etc and still can't figure out why I'm seeing a decrease in frame rates. And it's just after installing 11.11a where I noticed a nice bump in frame rates just prior to the patch yesterday. Also, the ctrl-alt-S keys no longer show us the in game ping .
How do i disable ULPS in the registry? i don't see this in your guide.
Perhaps more time should be spent playing, instead of watching game FPS counters?
I've been playing on a 6770 lately, even. Clearly FPS is not something I personally worry about, unless it's abysmal, and let me tell you, after using this 6770, I cannot say I am upset by performance of BF3.
Meanwhile, my 6950's sit on my desk collecting dust, and I'm saving on power consumption.
