Nice fix. Lol. I'm glad it's my fault.
It has to do with the stupid admin permissions in the OS that Origin uses. They had a "South African Engineer" fix for it a while back but that broke the last update. If you can find a better way post it up man.
but why are YOU the one with the problem, and seemingly not many else?
Triptex showed me an interesting thing about lagging perforamnce, and how it might be drivers, for AMD users.
Different system configs, different problems. Me, I haz none, really.
Mind you ,I guess I might be easy to please.
There was a ton of people bitching on the EA forums a while back about this. They posted the fix and then broke it with the last update thus brining back the lag. I use NVIDIA and had this issue BEFORE I rebuilt. Now its smooth as butter (knocks on wood).
Where are these "hidden" folders? AppData folder? ProgramData?
What files in the registry need to be "cleaned"?
App data I belive. You would have too look around. As for the registry entries I never messed with it.
But is this step necessary for the game to work correctly? I wonder if EA/Dice have a hand in making AMD drivers? The similarities are astonishing!
Well when I uninstalled Origin and reinstalled it, the damn app still had the admin settings I applied from the first "fix" as the preferences were never removed from the registry.......yeah so when you unistall Origin it leaves shit all over. My hate for EA/DICE installers runs pretty deep now because of this.
When I get home from work going to blow the dust off mine and reinstall it.
I share the same ideas as dave. My OS install is closing in on 3 years old and I don't see much issues except with origin and that is not OS issues. When I launch 2142 from origin it asks me to authenticate it to my EA account... WTF so I enter my information and it says its unavailable. It has done this since I purchased 2142 and I think I got it to work a couple of times by going to the game directory and launching it without origin.
I never said its the OS. As a matter of fact I made the mistake of thinking I had an OS problem thus the reinstall. It was stupid of me. Its an Origin issue with its admin rights in the OS. Its an Origin issue.....ITS AN ORIGIN ISSUE, SAVVY?!
I'm still not having any of these issues. Must be the weekly reimage of windows.
Origin/EA as a downloader/software distro is painfully bad. Having multiple logins for multiple games has gotten the system all messed up. The battlefield PC series, I have an account for each one and it sux. I wished they could atleast merge it with your origin account so you have one log in for ALL games BF related.
My post was meant as a joke.
I had them merge all of mine to my new account, took a couple of minutes total.
25 kills with a mortar? Asking the impossible arn't they?
OK after over 2 years of nagging EA finally posted on how to change your BF2/BF2142 password! It sounds so stupid but you must go to POGO.com and log into the account. once in you change the password and it will change in game............ WTH ea ........ WTH
um no. you can do it in origin now.
Yeah I still have yet to complete that one asking for two. Think gonna try again on AK Rush which I have been playing anyway the last few days. Partly for that 10 MCOM assign and partly for a change of pace.
On that note, kind of surprised the Gunship is allowed in Rush with all the enemies in such a tighter area. Guys are easily getting 100+ kills. One dude even said it felt cheap. Being closer, it is easier to lock on to it and stuff as well as hit in general but still...
Origin Help, Live Chat.
Yea thats a hassle, I have tried three times tonight each time the window randomly closes or the advisor pops in but I cannot type due to the waiting in queue box is still up.
This is my whole issue! when I start BF2142 I get this and its an endless loop
When I try live help... WTF EA/Origin. as you can see the person is trying to contact me but stupid wait screen is stuck on top.
That would piss me off. The only thing that would make feel better would be running over my neighbor's cat.
HAHAHA, I found the OFFICIAL ea BF2142 1.51 patch and I torrented the original ISO so I will try to bypass origin all together. Sad I have to go to these extremes to play a 10$ game
