5850 should handle BC2 up to 2560x1600
Hmmm, I might have to toss him a friend invite on XBL.
LaughingMan and I just got done ripping Kittensprinkles a new one on the Virginia Server FUN!! ^_^
What did Kittensprinkles do? He was playing on our server and wanting to join our clan or something last week. Not really sure what happened there as I missed a couple of days, but he hasn't returned after a night I missed out on.
Probably stood in front of their sights for too long, too often.
Hey, that's what he get's for standing still then!
Yes. Yes it will. Not only that but you can run DX11 and use 8X MSAA that actually works and applies to all objects well (unlike the GTX 280 I just moved over from). Game looks and runs great now.
Got my first defib kill tonight, totally by accident too (frankly usually forget about the option; my knife kills are few and far enough between). Took out the pads to revive a guy and suddenly there was a bushwookie in my face. Without even thinking about it, more startled than anything, I hit the mouse button and that was that!
yes your 5850 will destroy bc2 at any setting, however in the essense of competitive multiplayer shooters, higher fps is almost always better, and 8x aa looks almost exactly like 4x aa, and the performance suffers a bit for it.. try them out.. i stick with 4x/16x hbao or whatever it is on, and i get about 80-120fps at 1920x1080.
i run 2xaa cause i too, notice the FPS difference.
sure its playable at 30FPS, but i cant knife for shit below 50.
got the M60 tonight and all my medic upgrades (not all guns just yet)... all I have to say is this gun is shenanigans
click... click... click... click - dead from 500m, even easier at close range
Huh? If you choose red-dot you still have your med-kit. You can't have red-dot + med-kit enhancement (extra range or faster heal - can't remember which), but you still have the kit and paddles so you're still 100% medic; you're just not 105% or 110% medic as you would be if you choose both enhancements.
Running it at x16af and forced 8x AA (Edge) in CCC, feels ok on the trial run.
You guys do know that the knife has a stab forward auto aim?
My son says it is the beast of all weapons so far. He has the
red dot and taps for about 2 or 3 round bursts. Hopefully I'll
get there some day. I can use a little bit of an advantage.
.53 I have fun trying and dieing though.
Depends what you consider a weapon... Assault most use the noobtube rather than the gun, and Engineers are M2CG crazy. Beyond those, yeah, most likely.
question, does the magnum ammo upgrade does any noticeable difference? because for me it doesnt. Im normally a recon guy, and when i miss and shoot the enemy on the torso, it takes me another shot to kill him so its 2 shots per person, with or without magnum ammo.
I’m sure there is a damage cap (most games have them but I don’t have definitive proof for you). I notice a difference in dmg with any other class other than recon with magnum equipped.
I normally only use the m95 and regardless if magnum’s equipped or not it’s normally 1 or 2 shots to kill someone depending on how far away they are from me. I ran around and just red dotted the m95 and I didn’t bother equipping magnum. Worked fine that way.
Magnum is a small dmg boost and is probably negated by the high dmg that most of the sniper rifles already have. Like I said, I notice a difference in dmg with any other class other than recon with magnum equipped.
Adds ~%15 damage depending on the gun.
Use it on people with armour. It goes right through it.
Tested on the upper region of chest:
M16a2 vs normal target <10m distance ~2 bursts
M16a2 + mag """ ~ 2 bursts
M16a2 vs armoured target """ ~3 bursts
M16a2 + mag vs armoured target <10m distance ~2 bursts
Remember with distance the power of the shot weakens.
lol how about the fact you dont get any points when you die? Dont get me wrong i like the game, but as soon as i figured that out and had it verified on the ea forum i just stopped trying and am currently just coasting along not really caring
good info, thanks. I guess it makes the most difference with automated weapons, since it would take less rounds to kill someone.
Yeah Dice really needs to do something about the hit boxes, that happens to me all the time, specially when shooting someone, I see a blood splatter coming out of the back of their head, and no hit....im left like "WTF no way!...ah"
what I hate most is when I stab someone TWICE, and it doesn't register.
I usually end up getting stabbed by the person I was pursuing
Any way to fix the flickering snow/grass textures while machinegunning? On an ATI HD4890, WinXP
30 fps with 4870 crossfire on 8x AA? I haven't done any measurements but run fraps from time to time and get like 50-60 with 8x on this 5850 at 900/1100 and maybe 5-8 less with 4x and no bloom on the GTX 280. That's with a dual core at 3.0Ghz stock too (not permanent; another story...). The AA still isn't great in this game, certain things still have some jag at certain angles but overall way improved and I am very pleased. What can I say, I'm a graphics whore and I have only seen/felt the game actually fps lag once when two tanks blew up right in front of me almost simultaneously.
sounds like a DX9 issue to me, havent seen that in DX10
wrigley: it was just an example, my FPS tends to stay fairly high.
Ok. I will test 4x but don't think it will make much difference. Though tbh I still need all the help I can get and the M60, while better, is no magic bullet (lol) for me no matter red dot or magnum ammo or whatever. I hit plenty of guys who don't die and I don't think it's server lag either, at least generally.
Changing my FOV back to default hasn't done much either btw, though I certainly wasn't expecting night and day difference.
my biggest problem is knowing a gun too well. you instinctively fire however many shots should kill them, but due to lag your one or two short... your fault, but still annoying.
