well tried gaming with mailman, guy on his team managed to kill me before i spawned, and then proceded to survive around 70 rounds from an M16, and 1 grenade, quit that vietnam server went back to BC2 vanilla played on a regular server went 14/5 best on my team and the game CTDs. i really hope BF3 is more stable then BC2.
I have never had BC2 CTD.
It happens to me all of the time on BC2. Usually it is either going into a match or when a match finishes. The only other times it happens is when I am in the process of killing someone or a group of people in a row. No joke, it crashes only in those 3 instances. About 1 in every 5 matches will have this happen:mad:.

I run PB setup daily and leave it running as I play( was a suggestion I read somewhere) Internet connection is fine according to pingtest and speedtest and that dplatchecker program. Even tried no OC on the system at all with no luck. Reinstalled, game, vid drivers, even windows with no luck:banghead: I just don't know anymore

Edit: No afterburner, realtemp, gpuz or the such running either (another suggestion that is out there)

Well I don't know what you are doing because both REAYTH and I have never had an issue. Is your DX updated?

Its not BC2 because it doesn't happen on mine or REAYTHS. Gotta be something else. Something it doesn't like.

Hmmm I see your render limit is also different. Maybe these are the issue? REAYTH and I both leave the default FOV and render limit. I also read something about the sound. I use headphones.

i have to change the FOV or i feel sick,

render limit if set to 0 means the game isnt Guessing on what gets rendered thus lowers input lag latency etc, thus why i use them render ahead limit at 2 or 4 causes me massive hit box issues.

no, I have stock FOV and render ahead at 1 and I get the (very) occasional ctd. maybe once every 2 months or so (used to be worse, patches fixed it somewhat)

Shit maybe I better change mine. I have plenty of screen and I have issues from time to time. I have the render ahead at 0 now too. It really didn't make a difference from 1 though.

Its not BC2 because it doesn't happen on mine or REAYTHS. Gotta be something else. Something it doesn't like.
Happens on mine sometimes too. Completely stock settings. Punkbuster, the game and DX always fully up to date, even trying multiple drivers. Even on a completely clean windows install. It will be the absolute only game that crashes for me on an all stock clean setup. It has happened when the only setting I've changed in game is the resolution. I've even tried it with on-board sound and HDMI soulnd out of the video card. Still happens on occasion.

It's definitely the game. it just crashes sometimes. I'm guessing it has something to do with the servers and missed packets or something.

seems to CTD alot for me kurgan, highway and others.
I don't get them too often, the times I have got them it's been in streaks and I got pissed enough to format windows and it almost always worked. Last time I CTD'd is probably more than a month ago I think.

i have to change the FOV or i feel sick,

render limit if set to 0 means the game isnt Guessing on what gets rendered thus lowers input lag latency etc, thus why i use them render ahead limit at 2 or 4 causes me massive hit box issues.
Yeah I can't play at stock FOV, I personally play at 85, any higher and I notice big time fish bowling.

I found that bumping up the IOH volts when only overclocking the unCore on my set up fixed most of the texture flickering going on.

I've had it crash but it was not-rock-stable OC. Also have had connection failures and such at times but generally fixed with PBsetup run. Been trouble free for awhile now and played for hours this past weekend (including finally with Mailman last night who kept trying to rope me into hardcore as he's better at it but we finally found a vanilla Heavy Metal server where we both kicked some ass esp him...but then I had to go make milkshakes for me and the old lady. Priorities, man.)

Oh yeah I do get texture flickering fairly often esp on big outdoor maps. I figured crossfire related a la the black screen flicker which I also get but not too frequently. Maybe Ill give those voltages a shot. Should also try without my gpu oc just to see.

I've had it crash but it was not-rock-stable OC. Also have had connection failures and such at times but generally fixed with PBsetup run. Been trouble free for awhile now and played for hours this past weekend (including finally with Mailman last night who kept trying to rope me into hardcore as he's better at it but we finally found a vanilla Heavy Metal server where we both kicked some ass esp him...but then I had to go make milkshakes for me and the old lady. Priorities, man.)

Oh yeah I do get texture flickering fairly often esp on big outdoor maps. I figured crossfire related a la the black screen flicker which I also get but not too frequently. Maybe Ill give those voltages a shot. Should also try without my gpu oc just to see.
I've noticed that when I'm at the edge of a map or/and can overlook the entire map or large portions of it (like in Heavy Metal) that is usually when the flickering happens. Both texture flicker and the black screen flicker.

I'm also on X58 setup and not a P55 like yourself so I'm not sure if the IOH volts will help on a P55 board.
