do the patches work auto if you dont use steam?
there is an updater that checks at game launch, you should see the little window before the game actually loads
Oh man After the second save in Bolivia when the boat attacks. My game cut out the audio and would flash to a grey screen every 1 or 2 seconds. No audio and a Grey Screen. Every time I restart the game and pick up from that autosave it does the same thing.
Not sure what to do say or think right now.
I've had the same issue, I'm not sure what causes it, but hopefully a patch or driver will fix it soon. I'll be playing a game when it will just cut out like a CTD, but instead of the desktop, I get a grey screen and my computer becomes unresponsive requiring a hard boot.
Yeah I got my second CTD just now. I waited a bit and when I loaded my save game it worked just fine. I've now passed that part but like I said I got a CTD so I decided to check here again. I hope they have a patch in the works.
I hope the intro is as good as BF2 otherwise Im not buying ^^
Urgh, living in the UK sucks ass. All I've wanted to do this week is play this game - and I've still got to wait another day and a half! Rubbish.
My missus is going to be ... umm ... 'stoked', that I bought this game. Playing BF2 on my brother's PC was what got me into computers and PC gaming.
It's like BF2 but probably 10x better!
Have fun waiting
servers still down or what?
If you guys want I can probably send you my save files (finished campaign). Then you could just skip to the next part. PM me if you are interested.
The EA logo is pretty awesome... For once I did not mind watching it.
azarimy to the rescue
Played a bunch of rounds last night, utterly incredible - My only qualm is that it's not BF3 and it feels like its missing 32 people, jets and a couple more choppers when you play.
Just downloaded for my boy while hes in school. But game will not launch. Comes up a problem has stopped game from working and needs to close. Windows will notify me when fixed. Dam hes going to be upset hes been looking foward to this game.
Any IDEAS ?
not something i have experienced yet.
sounds like it is outside of the game, as in windows itself. not sure of the immediate solution, but check that ALL drivers are updated, as well as windows is updated.
I would also create a fresh thread under games, just to get more attention. put the error message in the title of it, and people who wouldn't checked out this thread will see it, and hopefully have some answers. I say this mainly because, this error is not in any way specific to BC2 , it is a windows error. I haven't heard of it happening to anyone else yet, so i don't know that they will have a ready solution.
Got it. Screwed around updated everything still nothing but then I found validate download on steam account. I guess there was 23 files or something not right it fixed them and now it works.
Cool, now I can see him play and see if I will get it or not. Hes pretty much my game tester. LOL
awesome... it really is a great game.
you might as well jump on for a few before he gets home
I just had a play through in single player for about an hour, forgot how fun and explosively crazy these games are, graphics are good, especially the lighting, sound detail is top notch and blowing pointless shit up adds to the excitement.
Got some lag mainly when Im in a cloud of smoke and heaps of shit is blowing up but still very playable.
Playing at 1080p, 8xMSAA + 16xAF also HBAO or wateva u call it is turned on.
I will post some screenies up soon if you guys want!
No your not allowed! lol
ps (not because it would spoil anything SP related, just your spec... lol)
2ps turn off HBAO and see if it gets rid of the lag, it makes my camera feel floaty so I turn it off till they patch that or improve it's performance.
Have fired up Steam after work today and hello, Mister Stream would like to know if I want to pre-load BC2.
Fuck YES I would!
So, while Europe got screwed on the release date (as usual), at least we get to pre-load.
yeah they had mentioned they were still trying for uk pre-load.
Battlefield: Bad Company 2 [PC] Despatched 03/03/2010
Wohoo \o/ Next week it's game time for me too. Well first SP and everyone is way ahead in MP, but will be more fun to kill higher ranked players
hey this is prob a dumb question but how do i join the tpu server cus i want to play with you guys?
just open the game, click multiplayer at the top
click cancel as it is searching for a full list, you don't need it.
just type "[TPU]" without quotes, in the box at the top right of this screen. it should only take a few seconds, and then it will pop up in the list.
is the server online now cus im not seeing it popin up?
Make sure TPU in the brackets in capitalized, if it isn't it won't show up.
Separate names with a comma.
