    My games occasionally crash. Although I tried to update my driver repeatedly it did not happen. Also uninstalling it does not work either.

    Had a very brief play this morning.

    With a freshly formatted PC, with all the latest drivers and rig as below (GPU running at 1000/2000/4000 with appropriate voltage) - still can't get 60fps on High and I don't think I can eek any more performance out of my GPU!

    Dammit Scan, when are you going to get those classifieds back in stock!?

    When I first load the battle log and join a server it crashes now and then, but it only happens once or twice and then it starts working fine :).

    I'm getting the same crashes, the games just seems to freeze. Hopefully they'll get it fixed soon enough though.

    I get that too. Usually the first time in the day I try to join a server, I'll click go to game, and just end up with a black screen.

    I also got a white screen crash yesterday. And one where the sound got stuck, and then all sound went, then I had to ctrl+alt+del out of the game.

    I've just had my first taste, and I'm loving it, despite being painfully sh*t to start with...still its a learning curve!

    I updated PB manually prior to playing anyway, and then dived in

    Had a go at the campaign just to get a feel for what the game looks and plays like...Had to drop the res on my monitor but runs comfortably at 40+ FPS on my rig with medium to high settings at 1920X1080 - happy with that

    Had a couple of crashes, where the game just freezes and I have to Ctrl-Alt-Del to get myself back to the windows desktop, although I haven't updated my nVidia drivers to 285.62 - reckon that could be it?

    Just realised ATI Catalyst was set to OC mode, Turning this off stopped the game from crashing as often, can actually play a full match now...

    well just for anyone who is interested with my crossfire 6870 set up ultra (thats everything set to ultra with all the extra on highest possible) was playable at 30fps but in some sections it would go down to 10fps, so i changed it to high and now im get 50fps even in the combat sections

    How do you use the LMG's. They are so inaccurate.

    Love MK11 and SKD though, can't stand any other gun. Same as BFBC2 for me, love to use all semi-auto sniper rifles as battle rifles.

    I love using the LMG'S, I don't find them too bad if you use them in short bursts; great for suppressing fire.

    Try waiting until you unlock the front grip, it stops you relying on the bipod for accuracy. I find with quick bursts on the M249 I can dominate, went 28-4 when I used it in a TDM game. :D

    With the starter LMG's, think of them as heavy assault rifles. The have 47 round magazines, bipod and normal sights. Slap on a Holographic sight, laser pointer and you're rocking.
    One massive advantage that both the RPK and M27 have, is that you have fire modes, so you can set it to single fire and you have a 47 round sniper rifle essentially.... and infinite ammo.

    Look to see where people are coming from, since you play Recon alot, you will know the routes people tend to take and also know when to simply stay back and let them come to you. If you see the enemy come, just hit the deck, deploy the bipod and tear it up.

    Same principle goes for the larger guns, except that you have to learn trigger control to snap off single shots and your reload times are immensely longer. :thumb:

    Same here, have a new love; the M249 with IR/Grip/Ext Mag, 200 rounds, can see anyone, anywhere, and be accurate on the move, I wuvwuvwuv it :D

    Nearly 2nd star with it, and I think I'll keep using it :clap:

    If anyone is getting video card crashing after a few minutes try lowering your gpu clock by 50mhz or so. My palit 560ti is factory overclocked to 900mhz so I pegged it back to reference clocks and its been fine. If I put it back to normal (900mhz) it fecks up.

    I got this advice from nvidias forum.

    Regards

    Eddie
