post #1331 of 4923
Only played for about an hour and cannot make a good judgement yet. I did not max out graphic settings and still had lot of choppiness playing that made the game very difficult to play. I even got the server browse up and chose a server with a lag of 62 and it was still choppy. Tried the play now a few times and did not get anything better. I did not get any crashes at all though, so that was good.

Just posted this in different thread, may already have been mentioned...nvidia 196.34 beta drivers really improved performance for me: more fps (+5-20), smoother performance, better looking. Also better looking/smoother performance at low fps. No downside, yet.

W7/Vista 64bit 196.34 beta driver:

edit: I've got everything turned all the way up (16x/AA, 16x/AF).

I'll have to try that to see if it helps. I think i am running 196.21 or the 195 drivers....can't remember which one, but I know it is not the new beta.

EDIT: I'm sure you got a good increase because the new beta driver enables SLI in BC2, but hopefully it helps with single cards also.

Yeah, I think the SLI enabling helped. I'm also seeing improved appearance and performance even when my fps dips as low as it was pre-update, if that makes any sense...less choppy, even when I'm down around 30 fps.

Also, like some others have mentioned, there's a BFBC@BetaUpdater in my Electronic Arts/BFBC2-Beta folder...just double-click, game updates and starts.

The mouse sensitivity is a good improvement.

I cannot play this with out the needed options, toggle aim, lean, prone, sprint diangle.

nvm

The DICE employee said that there has never been lean in a Battlefield game so it might not be in there. I can understand prone. You really need to sprint diagonally? Go sprint outside and see if you can run diagonally efficiently.

If you are sprinting straight at an enemy of course you can run diagonally efficiently, on top of that, Yeah I wanna sprint straight into an enemy! Don't wanna stop and camp! I wanna get to the enemy & make score. Not run & get scored off of.

Just makes no sense I know that its in beta I hope it improves.

You're in the same boat as everyone else. Time to adapt.

I for one am happy that prone is gone. No more seeing and enemy and diving onto the floor. You don't need prone to be a good sniper either.
