Yes - it's serious
WOW people are complaining that you cannot bind mouse buttons and not on the server browser. Bravo EA!
I don't consider basic features that have been common practice since 1996 to be "Comfort Things". The fact that this game doesn't even have the basics that BC2 had (Squad Controls, Bindings, etc.) does have me worried. I love the game, but to deny that it has quite a few major issues would be incorrect to say the least.
Even if there was a next week, no bugs are being fixed in the beta
You offered nothing, you bragged about your "better" mouse, you only troll and insult people!. As I already wrote it down, I have an MS and a Logitech mouse (both are pretty big fish in the "mice market", but they are certainly not as big as "your moon" indeed) and I can't bind the RMB in the official software (not for MS or Logitech), (FYI:I had to swap the wiring with one of the side-buttons.)
Some comments are starting to get out of hand, opinions are good, even when they differ, lets keep things on track and polite please.
to all those who keep saying that this is a beta and not a demo so its nothing to get worked up about, do you really think they can change so much this close to release? i think its pretty obvious that the game will have alot of bugs on release day.
I believe DICE themselves said the version for Open Beta was roughly 1 month old (the initial non-Alpa release, with minor changes from Alpha) and a lot of the issues people were experiencing were already addressed.
EXACTLY !!! been done and done by EA ..... scared of EA .,... great idea reduced to mere shadow of themself! ....
other thing ... so low fps is a bug? .. i get 20 fps on high 1920x1080 with 2x gtx570 ...?? normal ?
( i knew i should have gone for 2xgtx580 or 2xgtx590 )
I get excellent FPS maxed out on my 5870.
Did you install the the latest Drivers for you card? I heard Nvidia released BF3 specific Drivers.
Also try running with one card and see if you still get low FPS.
Also this Beta isn't the latest version they have. I doubt we will even get to play that.
how much ram do you have??? I know BF3 can be a REAL ram whore. Im running 8Gb of DDR3 - I was using 2GB of it as Supercache. when I first loaded BF3 up, it crashed not long afterwards with an error saying i had insufficient memory to run the game.
the game runs fine now that i disabled supercache.
Also what resoultion are you running it at on your 27" monitor? that might have something to do with it, but IMO 2x570's should be more then enough to handle it
You may find that the Beta is not LAA (Large address aware) and therefore "thinks" there is a cap of 4GB minus graphic cards memory and therefore reporting the error, if that was the case a simple programme will sort it, I had the same issues with another Beta which was programmed initially for 32bit systems...... or something like that.
It's not a ram whore though, it's a memory leak.
The news keeps getting better and better
I can't mouse bind buttons in game that sucks
To everyone that's complaining about the mouse button bindings, I'm with you. I haven't been playing the beta, but it would piss me off no end if I couldn't configure the controls and had to put up with some awkward setup just because of some pesky bug.
I'm not worried at all. The Beta isn't for debugging the game. It's for Battlelog and for the servers.
As stated already, the build is old. All of this "bug" stuff everyone is talking about that is in game is fixed already.
The idea of being worried about these ending up in the final retail building is humorous at best.
Use X-Button Mouse control, i have change fire mode on mouse 4
It's an old beta though, so it doesn't matter, and hopefully we will see a performance increase. As of right now? Stupid websites posting framerates that mean absolutely nothing and still dishing out advice of what GPU to use for the game. :/
Just use X-Mouse Button Control with ANY mouse, destroys all the bloatware supplied, with pure FUNCTION! It comes with 5 layers (profiles) that can be set anyway you like.
Remapping should be able to be done in Alpha. It should be one of the very first things coded.
Thank you! I already swapped the wiring of two buttons inside my mouse, I just use my other mouse for everything else and will swap things back after the beta is over.
But thanks again, I completely forgot about this progy, your input is much appreciated
