This is exactly right. All depends on how one's brain is wired related to visual perception.

I love my desktop but there are so many opportunities where a laptop would be wonderful to have. Tech is pretty good now, you wouldn't need to backslide that much.

Thanks fellas biggrin.gif

I have a crappy inspiron laptop now but its shared among the house. I was thinking budget mini itx so I can travel with it easier. I already own a tablet so that kind of serves the function of a personal mobile device. HS is coming out for Android even on the phone. My worry is Watchdogs and The Witcher 3....games I actually want to play coming out that will need some horsepower.

Kind of excited about the new maps, should be fun
post #21314 of 29764
I've been noticing some players using the Naval Strike weapon unlocks like the SW40 pistol and the SR-2 PDW for at least 2 weeks now. I'd like to know how that happened since I'm a Premium account and didn't even see them on my Unlocks until a week ago and still can't use it until I finish the Packing A Punch assignment by playing Naval Strike at least once, although I can use the AR160. rolleyes.gif

Btw, does anyone know how to unlock the 'Phantom Trainee' assignment yet ? I did the 'Phantom Prospect' by entering some code somewhere to unlock the task (I forget what, it's been a while ) and it seem's like you have to do something similar for this one too.

Every time a DLC is about to come out DICE patches the weapons in. The assignments are not in battlelog and will only show up in game at the end of a match if you have done something towards completing them. Then a week or 2 later they patch in the actual battlelog assignments. Then a few weeks after that they release the actual DLC. They always do it this way on PC making the weapons (unless they require play on an actual new DLC map) unlockable immediately. I only need the SR338 from naval strike because it requires play on NS maps. For Phantom Trainee we will have to wait til Naval Strike. I'd say the info for it will be out in the 1st few days though. The community is pretty quick at figuring these things out.

When it comes to BF3/4 instability, first I blame Overclocks, then I would blame system software, like video drivers. Those seem to be the biggest issues, typically. As long as you know all your hardware is solid, then, drivers or some software incompatibility is probably the next step to blame.

TotallyDubbed pointed out some good troubleshooting stuff to try as well.

The other day I had my monitor set to 60Hz (I usually have it set to 96Hz or 120Hz) and started BF4 and it was more jerky and less smooth than it normally is. Then I set it back to 96Hz and it was so much smoother.

I've also get the video hardware to make sure I stay at 96+ FPS to take advantage of the higher refresh rate. I've been spoiled and won't go back to 60Hz.

None of this has helped me get my arms around BF4 though. I was good at BF2, 2142, BF3...just can't get the hang of BF4, though I don't play as much as I did the other games.

That's a nice way of saying someone's eyes or "brain tracking speed" blows. thumb.gif

I totally see what you're saying though. I've had folks put on my headphones and go, "Yeah...and?" Then I've had folks put them on and the next day they're asking me about which headphones and which amp. I've got one friend that cannot tell the difference between her ~128 Kbps MP3's downloaded from who knows where and my ripped FLAC collection!

I'm not surprised by your troubles w/ BF4 though. I was OK in BF2, OK in 2142, terrible in BC2, horrible in BF3, and am doing pretty well in 4. I don't know what it is, but the game is VERY different than 3. Now if only we could get:

1. SERVER SIDE HIT DETECTION
2. 128 TICK RATE

Servers would explode.. tongue.gif although stranger things have happened. Such as Sim City going Offline. Dun Dun DUNNNNN!! biggrin.gif
post #21317 of 29764
I don't care!

ALSO, I WANT DEDICATED SERVER FILES SO I CAN SETUP MY OWN @ LANS!!!!

Seriously man, we are not running consoles here. There's no reason DICE can't give us what we want...accept that maybe it would increase load on servers and that would increase costs. OH HEY! WHY NOT ALLOW ANYONE TO RUN A SERVER SO THAT'S NOT AN ISSUE DICE?!?!?!!

THAT'S MY POINT ! redface.gif
You have to play Naval Strike at least once to unlock the SR-2 PDW and the SW40 pistol, yet some players have been already using them for weeks and I have no idea how they did that. I have Premium and that's as good as it gets for early access. How did they get the guns ? and I'm not making this up, I got killed by the same guy using the SR-2 in Rogue Transmission, 3 times, 2 weeks ago !

Nowhere in the assignment does it say that you need to play on NS to use those new weapons.

You need to own the DLC, which means all us Premium players can unlock them now.

The only NS assignment that requires gameplay on NS would be Always Deadly for the SR338.

The only weapon that requires play on Naval Strike maps is the SR338 sniper rifle. No other assignment does. SW40 only requires 10 impact grenade kills on any map, SR2 only requires 20 attack boats destroyed on any map. I have all of them except the SR338 for that exact reason. As long as you own the DLC and Premium anyone could have unlocked them when they were 1st patched in.
