Ok Thanks to a TPU member ( I can not thank you enough ) Wrigleyvillain I have BF3 !! It is the BEST game I have ever played . I am a total noob too . I still can not figure out just how to fly the helicopter yet . I keep crashing !!! My system plays it flawlessly as well not one hiccup or any thing . I notice that it uses a ton of RAM 74% and all 4 cores up to 90% !!! Any one care to tell me just how to fly in co-op I can not get past it !

Same usage on my machine as well. BF3 is a freaking pig. :rockout:

As for flying the Heli, if your are using the keyboard, try using wasd/arrow keys. Forget the mouse completely. You have to be gentle with the heli's, too much pitch/roll and you'll put 'er right into a cliff face.

I can not believe it 93% memory usage with 90-100% CPU usage ! WTH ??? Now I think it is the servers but the MP I was playing was all glitchy and way to bad to play had to exit !

BF3 likes more than 4gb of RAM. Perhaps your CPU is showing some age as well. You may have to turn down your settings.

I do not think that my CPU is showing it's age just yet . I mean it eats this game up but good . I do not have any issues other than slow servers .

I found that once I starting using the MAV to run people over, that flying the helicopters was cake. Before that I was like you and crashed most of the time.

I used the co-op mission to set the controls to how I instinctually want to use them. I ended up with the mouse controlling yaw (x) and pitch (y) and the keyboard controlling roll (left/right) and altitude (up/down). It makes her real easy to keep level for me and even easier to manuever. Adapt the controls to what your brain wants to do. The default controls suck.

The problem is, most maps only have one or two helicopters and someone else always takes them. :(

How???? That's exactly how I want my controls set but for some reason it sets my yaw(x) inverted!! I move the mouse left and it goes right! Makes it impossible for me to fly so I have barely touched any choppers. :cry:

You have to go to the general control options and check invert flight mouse some such. Unfortunately, it applies to jets too. I ended up changing jets to WASD and arrows i think becuase jets I want inverted, helicopters I don't. I'm hoping Xbox360 controllers work on BF3 and i'll move jets to it instead.

I don't have the game open right now but I know its in there.

I got the game for xmas and did a few rounds of co op lastnight, I was useless in the chopper using mouse and keys so i set it up on my PS2 pad and it was so much easyer, managed to do the chopper lvl on hard.

@FordGT90Concept I think the xbox pads work out of the box for BF3 because i have to use an xbox pad emulator thing to get the game to detect my ps2 pad and converter. If i don't use the xbox pad emulator thing then my pad dosen't get detected at all.

The best part about this game is you can map so many diffrent buttons and even map multiple functions to the same button.
