I don't get off till 10:30, but I expect to be on.
Was on for a bit earlier, shot a pilot out of the blackhawk on Valparaiso and the heli fell on top of me, haha. I wish i had recorded it.
I hate this game .... I've reformatted countless times and I've tried all combination of hardware yet it will still inevitably hard lock my whole computer ... sometimes after a few minutes sometimes after a few hours of game play. OC'd or not OC'd same results, I am beginning to think that steam is the problem as after all those reformats etc. I've never once uninstalled or reinstalled BFBC2, mainly because of the huge download. >.< GAH
Why would you try a reformat before a simple reinstall? Are you having issues with any other game in Steam?
No no, there is no way I would reformat for a game, what I was meant to say is that its been almost a year and I've reformated quite a few times since and yet the issue remains unsolved. Steam or the copy of my game is definitely the problem at this point as I go through plenty of hardware changes including GPU and I've tried all the logical drivers out there so ... that only leaves the fact that I've always only had the same copy of BFBC2 backed up.
Obviously the backed up install was corrupt. Delete it all and reinstall the game from scratch.
Add me to the list! my ingame name is snuif09. I mostly play assault>engineer>medic>recon.
lets get things rolling people 9:00pm-9:30pm lets try and get some active TPUers on teamspeak and kick some ass online.
Teamspeak info (current)
lol well this will be the last straw, then I guess if it still locks me up I'd have to talk to DICE but then with BF3 coming out this year I prolly cbf ... here goes nothing
i have to ask are you running any overclocking software tools for your gpus etc?
i know Sapphire TriXX, MSI Afterburner, both lock my system with BC2, if i have the apps disabled no problems kinda sucks since it means i cant use custom fan profiles in BC2 without it crashing or exploding lol
Oh! I never thought of this, yes I do always use third part oc software aka MSI Afterburner. I'll see what happens with it off.
Been playing for an hour. I think I'm gonna play some recon. Running about .70. Better then what I get when going engineer.
That is probably it ! I have mine OC'ed , but just about 500 mhz. Any one know when the 7000 series is going to be released ? Red of course
come on pussies lock and load
Ill be there.
Im going in too in a few...
Feel like some Harvest Day.
punkbuster is officially the biggest POS on the planet got kicked 2 damn times tonight do to Key Packet loss, both times i was holding Ace, fucking god damn piece of shit punkbuster.
Just played 3 games in a row with no hard lock! I am hoping that this is the fix once and for all.
yea welcome back to gaming man, its kind of a pain in the ass but from what i found out MSI afterburner, Sapphire Trixx have issues with Punkbuster for some ppl apparently me and you are in that group of people affected by that issue.
Been enjoying Isla Inocentes map, Squad Deathmatch, 100 kill and quick respawn. What does everyone else play?
I haven't played anyone on TPU yet, im pretty shit though i usually break even with my K/D.
I will play anything but Squad Rush. Didn't you play L4D2 with us last night?
Just hit my custom title 5k post count and trying to pick a title, any of you that have played BC2 with me, toss me some suggestions. First that comes to my mind is, "The Silent Killer" since highway and crazy have said that if you don't hear me talking, I am probably close and planning on making my move.
How 'bout "Like Ninja!"
Congrats on reaching that milestone. And I was proud of myself when I hit 200.
