well the game has issues as ive mentioned before i cant run dx 11 or dx10 mode im forced to run the game via DX9 forced via the ini file just so i can play
Issues with ATi or the game?^
im guessing the game because...
metro 2033 runs fine in DX11
so does Alien vs Predator as well as Heaven Bench all the other DX11 bs benchmarks just badcompany2 dosent want to run properly
how the fuck do u get 100+ fps.. when i turn all my settings on low and get 40 if im lucky.. with a 295 with latest drivers... what the gay
Wow... big discrepancy there.
yeah man. all max including AA, HBAO on 1080p w/2x5850s gets me 114 avg up to 140. i never saw it get below 100 but there were no explosions and it was just me testing the cards. i'm sure it will drop but i doubt often. nearly twice what a single card was doing. of course i get the gray lines every 40 seconds or so, which ruins it.
there are threads on this
There are more but basically there are 3 major issues
with Xfire and AFAIK 5 series cards on BC2
1. textures flickering
2. slow load times
3. Lines across screen
Ati has ATTEMPTED to fix each one of there but the general consensus is the lines are still there.
The best combo process for me was:
Ccleaner Registry sweep (anything ati)
Delete EvrieTing ATI
XFire profiles. (uninstall the ones that are there with the crossfire profile install manager)
XFrire profiles (actual install)
THERE ARE STILL RANDOM LINES HORIZONTALLY ON SCREEN 2X -3X MAX PER GAME
TEXTURE FLICKERING IS COMPLETELY GONE
GAME LOADS SLOWER THAN SYRUP. 17 920 & SSD and I am last to spawn every map.
2560x1600 8xSSAA 16xAF & Everything highest setting 90-110fps
I can live with the lines cause the games looks fabulous finally
I have a mission now...
I'd have to put my 280 back in to time it which ain't happening right now but it's at least 15 seconds longer if not 20. I can test DX9 though...
server I have been playing on for the last 2hrs just went down. prior to going down it started to get real laggy. tried to join other servers & despite it saying 27/32 the browser tells me its full - so I do a refresh - & now its 26/32 = servers still full. so i refresh it a 3rd time *BAM* CTD.
how long is it going to take to sort this game out?? they deserve an olympic medal for this or something
i wanna know why my 295 gets 40fps tops
cause its not ATI
not sure ... have new drivers came out lately? did you install the newish drivers correctly?
SLI scaling is broken just like ATI Crossfire. They have not patched it in the drivers yet.
If you force the game to run off 1 GPU, you should get better performance.
he's comparing it to us, in Crossfire, getting 100+ fps, with everything full max, 1080p. every single option in in game menu maxed, vsync off (duh)
Is crossfire really broken? I can't imagine that in the PC beta I was able to play the game all high, 8x AA, 4x AF with a Athlon II 240 @ 3ghz and a single 4870. Even now, playing same settings with my PII 720 @ 3.1ghz, I just cant imagine that only half of my card is working, I wouldnt think it would be able to push the game at 1920x1200 that well solo.
I am probably wrong. It was broken at one point with the flicker issue, but the 10.3 drivers should have fixed that if I recall.
I don't have flickering and I'm running 10.1's, in the beta they fixed the flickering, I had the flickering issues while running the 10.1's, I remember triptex moving to 10.2's, then DICE patched the game. I still had 10.1's and my flickering went away, but trip with 10.2's had flickering. I haven't updated my drivers since then either.
Think Ill try 10.1 and 10.2 just for the hell of it...
Too be honest, when I tested 10.1's, I found that 9.12's actually had better performance, granted I'm sure thats not true for the 5000 series.
lots of non xfrie users are reporting this exact thing even with 5k series
This seems like the only real fix for me.
1) Load the game.
2) Change resolution to something else.
3) Change it back to normal resolution.
4) Enable Vsync.
5) Problem solved for that game session.
I saw a flickering fix. To fix it just go to your Bad Company 2 folder in your documents folder and edit in settings.ini
set HSAO= false
What's your clock speeds again? I'm running 775/1100 My FPS goes from 60-120 I'm on the DL (DownLow) with overclocking, as I already play all my games max settings without any lag.
I know this has been around and around from forum to forum. BUT, has anybody come up with a solution on the GSOD / Freezing? I ALWAYS do bad ass when I am like 17/5 but when I play shitty 6/15 I don't get any GSOD/ Freezing? What's the BIZ, it's obviously a driver problem with ATI 5850's because on all other ones, nobody is getting these errors...
