Nice one Red mate +rep from me
thx for the reps
aaaaaaaaah the F button.
if it's not here yet (chat with battlefield 3 support):
yup. need to be online for any play of BF3 since it launches from battlelog....
and yes there's a downtime this morning. which fixes some laggyness with multiplayer and some SLI crashing?
Just wanted to comment on the destructoid review. Normally I respect any reviewers opinion even if I don't agree, but when it comes to Jim from destructoid that goes out the window. Over the months I've been visiting that site I've come to view him as a completely biased anti-ea, anti-origin blowhard that jumps on every internet hate bandwagon. The comment alone about vehicle dominated mp is enough to show me that he missed something.
Glad I don't care at all about singleplayer, that'd be more than a little annoying.
Multiplayer, on the other hand, is just part of the Battlefield experience having EA Master Server problems right when you really want to play.
I don't even want to know how slow of a DVD drive or how fast of a connection you must have to pull that off! While I was installing from disk Origin was displaying a "Download Speed" or 8.5MB/s, my 20Mbps connection is lucky to get 2MB/s. More than four times faster isn't exactly "about as fast"! I admit their servers were quite fast when downloading the 500MB update, though for a service run by a massive publisher hosting only a handful of games and only one of which being frequently downloaded I'd expect no less.
Amazon still havent dispatched mine yet.....Should i be worried?!
On X-box too?
ha. no idea on that actually. was just referring to the PC
Nope, UK release isn't until Friday - so it'll be sent out tomorrow for delivery then.
The only reason the others in the thread are playing is because they exploited the time-zone activation process, by way of proxy.
Here's to hoping they all get banned.
No I'm not jelly at all...
My amazon UK copy got sent out at 10am today
Expecting to hear it drop thought my door tomorrow morning!
20Mbps = 2MBps. You're maxing out your connection at 2
If you've a faster connection you can get 10MB+
Preloading tomorrow, woot
Lol, I would be mad if I was Bdigital at least - but I went with ZiiP; and'll have my CD-key e-mailed to me tomorrow morning for legitimate pre-load.
My copy from play got dispatched tuesday night at 7pm so hopefully will be at my door tomorrow morning i live in Kent
And i found this updated driver (version three 10/18/2011)
AMD Catalyst™ 11.10 Version 3 Preview Driver
Helps with crossfire flickering and also improved GPU performance
Might give it a go if i have issues
More or less, the difference between bits and bytes is just multiplying or dividing by eight depending on direction. Theoretically a 20Mbps connection would translate to 2.5MBps so I'm falling a little short, but that's expected as nothing's perfect in the world. To get 8.5MBps you'd need a 68Mbps connection minimum (again assuming a perfect world). Maybe Dragunov does indeed have such a fast connection but that's certainly not the norm and as such his comment would be a little misleading.
Might have to try this out, thanks for the link!
So guys are we going to meet on a certain server for a friday night shooting fest!
I am hoping to get online with a few mature and decent folk rather than have my launch party spoilt by a few immature individauls that i may find elsewhere
Roll on friday
I know our server is up, we just need to set the config for launch here. It'll be running hardcore, but come on in!
I hope that CPC & Bit-Tech have one as well, for I shall indeed be calling on from time to time to say hi to peeps
group of 2. recon and support.
recon unlocks MAV. support unlocks mortar.
together. they win.
edit: lotsa complaints about hardcore mode. i havent tried it myself, but u do get minimap, some kind of spotting, and other stuff that doesnt really make hardmode.... hardmode.... anybody try it?
Out of curiosity. Can you play the "back to Karkand" expansion now or does it get released later? I thought it came with the game on launch but i have heard no news about it.
