Doesn't work for me. What port?
EDIT: pass is not caps.
i didnt use a port just entered what you see in my sig and it connected
Hate to say it, but this game absolutely sucks ass, wish I never would have bought it. They give every reward to the veteran players, to the point that it's almost like botting. I got right up on a guy, used down the sight mode and unloaded right in his face, a complete clip. He turns around and with one shot and kills me. It's complete bullshit. Not realistic, not fair, not fun.
sounds like the ping issues i had to deal with, try other servers. the problem is that even if its the other player lagging, whichever one has the earliest time stamp is considered the one with priority once the server figures it out - so you can sneak up on someone and unload a clip into them, while they turned, saw and killed you - two different versions of events, so the server just picks one.
That may be part of the problem, but the weapons are a big problem too. When I can actually swipe a weapon off from a dead body, I do decent. It's like anyone in the bronze league in SC2 only gets SCV's and marines, while diamonds get all the good shit.
I was cruising in a tank towards B in Heavy Metal and an enemy Apache appears on my ass and shreds it, I jump out in the teens in hopes of getting off a lucky gutav shot before he creams me and look up to see the chopper about 50 feet away explode and rain onto the ground. Then Triptex comes rolling up out of nowhere in another tank 5 seconds later. My hero!
(I don't know if you used your AT4 or a shell but that was sweet and you had better got a Savior for that one or the system is borked!)
And JC your experience is not the norm btw, Mussels probably right.
Standard server with friendly fire on Triptex and myself dominated.
Some of the early weapons are the best in game. The PKM for Medics (first weapon) is the best LMG in game. The XM8 for Assault is one of the better Assault rifles. The M24 for Recon is one of the best Sniper Rifles, and the Scar-L for Engineer is almost the exact same gun as a UMP stats wise, it's very good.
Like erocker said, it really seems like ping was your issue.
It was a tank shell. I had missed the first shot and because of that he got off a full volley and almost toasted your tank. Luckily the second shot was on the money.
I will check some settings, make sure that the firewall isn't effing something up. I can handle sucking at a game, I can always get better, but what I have been experiencing is horrible.
You are also running a Dual core to make up for what you lack in Processor you are going to have to tone some stuff down. Set your render ahead to 1 or 0. Also turn off some of the settings that rob gpu. Because of your processor your GPU is doing a lot of extra work. I had to do the same thing when I was running an Ahtlon II x2. When I went to quad I still had to tone down a little. With a Hex I'm pretty close to Everything Maxed at 1080P. Those issues you are having were exactly the same things I had happening to me. When I get home tonight I'll do a little digging and try and find what other adjustment I made to make it run smooth and get good hit detection. It is Very Frustrating to say the least.
BFBC2 uses a lot more CPU then most games because of the Frostbite Engine. BF3 will be even more demanding. By the way if you ever get the setting right or upgrade you will love the game.
Don't yuh just hate it when their is that one Son of Bitch you just can't pass ? Just kidding , that how I feel every game except there are 5 of 6 in front of me
Took your advice and tweaked the settings a bit. I still suck, but at least when I have someone in my sights, they die. Also turned Color Blind on since I am and I can at least distinguish between my team mate and an enemy.
One question though, why is it when I play as Medic, I have no way of reviving people? Is it some unlockable thing? Kinda defeats the purpose of being a medic.
Yes it is one of your first unlocks so just keep plugging the enemy with holes.
I'll get back with you later today. By the way look at my K/D I still
suck after a year and still play it Have fun !
Now I am having fun. Found the issue, the HBAO setting was completely fucking up my game. Seems to be a common problem, turned it off and it was like taking a healthy does of suck-no-more. 13 kills 9 deaths, 17% accuracy, compared to 3 kills, 17 deaths and 2% accuracy with it on.
That is gay. They give you a broken class to begin with!!!! WTF were they thinking?!? Make the medic class unlockable, not broken. Gee soldier, you are a medic, but we are going to send you into battle without your medkits, see how you do.
calm down, it doesn't take that long to unlock them, med kits you'll get after about an hour or 2, defib after a few more
Still BS. It's not a medic class without having something to do with a medic. The other classes don't make you wait. There is no reason for holding back.
Is your cpu being pegged at 100%? If so I may have a temp solution.
Got it fixed. HBAO was messing it up. The game is actually fun to play now.
Also drop AF to 2x. You shouldn't notice a difference from default.
Yeah I noticed a big diff in constant fluidity in this game (e.g. higher min fps) going from dual to quad core at same clock speed.
you can drop medkits to heal people who are still alive.
the game SEEMS like your health regens thanks to the lack of health bars, but it doesnt. you can get shittons of points with those magic healy boxes.
Ouch on your K/D
Yeah, I have that and the defib now, but when you first start, the medic doesn't have either. Kinda defies the point of being a medic.
