You don't have to pick them up. Press 5 or scroll wheel and select the binocular. Come to think of it... I thought they automatically were selected as the primary weapon when its time to designate the air strike.

Seems like you won't need to go to EA to deauthorize it, if you got it on Steam. Just right click it and pop:

Here are a few steps to try to connect to servers:

Uninstall the BC2 BETA
Look in MY Documents for BC2 BETA directory. If it exists delete it.
Look where BC2 BETA was installed, if the BC2 BETA directory remains, delete it.
Try running the game again.

For all the players connecting to servers and being kicked straight away (and pbsetup.exe or manual updating didn't help) then you will be happy to know we are sending out R4 servers to our hosting providers which will hopefully solve this issue.

This is going out to the hosts shortly and then allowing time for them to update you should see connections going back to normal in the next few hours and continuing to spread to all servers during this evening.
Source

Those who are freaking out need to relax. DICE are acknowledging the problem and seem to be working to fix it ASAP. That's a lot more than the vast majority of other companies do.

EDIT ::

Quote:
We are looking into the server crashing but we are also seeing full servers too, so it is possible to fill a server and remain running. It is a priority fix but it won't be in R4.

No change to server refresh times, that is the server load of players getting server lists.
EDIT 2 ::

Not sure if anyone posted this before, here's an interesting post from the BC2 forum about the sound work gone into the game.

EDIT 3 ::

Wow it's quiet lol, guess everyone's off playing the game

Here's a list of ports the retail uses. They're apparently slightly different to the beta.

DX9 vs DX10 screenshot comparison.

Played in the OCN server for about 45 minutes. Didn't have any problems getting in.

Took my a few minutes to realize one of the maps i was playing on was smack in the middle of a naval invasion complete with missile strikes, f-18 fly overs, and anchored battleships.

Too bad i'm back to stock weapons.

Sounds cool.

Took me a couple of days with the beta to notice the fighting going on across the water

Maybe the server patch is getting around?
