    love to see your faces when you see all graphical settings are unlocked... your seeing about 60% of what it can do visually :p

    the graphics are caped to medium settings, sure you can set to high, but if you notice, theres not even any shadows ingame, just think what others things have been left out till beta/retail :p

    To change settings or play fullscreen get into a game and press escape to bring up the settings menu. Hope this helps someone.

    Anybody have any trouble with their mouse? Currently i cant play as the mouse just points at the sky constantly which isnt very effective for killing the enemy..?

    Got an Alpha Key yesterday evening. The game is good and I've being doing my bit by contributing founds bugs on the Alpha Forums.

    Unfortunately, since my PC doesn't meet the minimum requirements, playing on low @ a lower resolution is my only option :( However it's an Alpha so I'm not going to complain too much!

    I'm just happy it plays OK on my dual core, even at alpha stage, it does give those cores a hell of a workout though.

    I understand most of the destruction has being removed for the Alpha Build.

    I signed in to the alpha site and I didn't meet the criteria, dispite being a BF veteran from BF2 through to BFBC2.
    Not Happy.

    Don't suppose anyone has a key but can't make use of it???

    I've been playing alot of BC2 and it isn't bad to pass the time, but you dont get the same epic feel as BF2!

    Worth a try!

    In the Alpha Forums there's a similar bug. If you have a joypad/joystick connected to your PC, the mouse will spin in circles lmao
