Issues with Fullscreen Mode (Black Flicker)
After comparing my fps to a number of other players with similar builds and testing it out for myself, I realized that fullscreen mode actually increases my fps by close to 15. However when I switch to full screen I get this really annoying constant black flickering effect. It occurs in like 0.5 second intervals and is constant throughout. Windowed mode is absolutely normal and I've never crashed yet.

Are there any fixes for this? Or does anyone else have similar issues? I've tried to take videos via Fraps but for some reason the flickering doesn't appear. I'm not sure if its because I chose to record at 30 fps though.

I also wanted to mention that I had a similar issue back in the BC2 days. Certain drivers would cause it. I've tried both the WHQL drivers as well as the latest beta ones.

Any ideas?

Also the knife is a joke, there is no reason to use outside of backstabs and even then its slow and awkward.

I was prone and looking down barrel at someone maybe 100 feet away, it took 4 sniper rifle shots to in the chest to bring him down ...where in the world would this seem realistic?!

Even with Classified type V body armour or Dragon Skin capable of withstanding at least a single Armour Piercing rifle round, it wouldnt withstand many sniper rifle shots.

To need 4 rounds from a sniper rifle to kill someone is just stupid, as it clearly wouldnt take that many regardless of what armour they are wearing.

Oh just remembered something else I hate about this beta, on mine I swap to full sceen mode, then whenever a round ends or I click ESC to change something, it goes back to smaller window so I have to change it. Doesnt sound like much does it, but when your having to do this every min or so its very very annoying.

So I found the video settings, and set them to ultra... CF 5870's just don't seem to be enough. OR that these drivers (hotfix) are not very good. FPS bounce from 80 to 20 and back making it unplayable. I could use a single 5870 and highest settings including AA in BC2 without a hiccup.

Reduce it from ultra...

Level 5 plates such as those found the Interceptor, are capable of absorbing multiple 7.62MM projectiles and protecting the user. That is why you will see militarys going for .300 Win Mag and .338 Lapua as this will defeat the ceramic plate. You not only have the Level 5 plates you have lvl 3 soft they are contained in.

I'm quite surprised at this game. Even though I'm on the lowest settings and 720p it looks amazing! Not only that but I also have 50+ FPS average on my Rig.
Can't wait to get the money and order a HD6950/6970 but I'm quite surprised at how it performs on my GPU and how it looks even on the lowest settings+Resolution.

Not to mention if they add a feature on the battlelog page to change your Game settings before you join a game it would be awesome.

You know what's sad? There's a 1000+ post thread on Battlelog saying the damage is too high. It's pretty pathetic. lol

I'm probably having the worse beta experience. And after spending 8 hours a day at school programming I gotta say when I get home I just wanna relax and don't feel like diagnosing the problems my self. But as you can see in my specs my computer is nothing to laugh at but I don't expect to get any where near max settings on this game especially in beta considering it's not a finished product.

The mains problems I am having is that:

1) My HUD (heads up display) half of it chopped off like the picture is being stretched too much.

2) I never had any screen tearing problems in my entire career of PC gaming so this is my best guess at what it's called and that is I have a lot of screen tearing. If you've ever seen an old film and saw the tiny little horizontal black lines scrolling up the screen.

3) The game is extremely laggy even though on the server browser I pick servers with anywhere between 50-100ping. I even attempted to put all my settings on medium with a res of 2560x1600.

4) It doesn't really seem to matter what I change my graphic settings to medium, high, or ultra. The FPS (frames per second) doesn't seem to change that much. Almost like the settings don't ever kick in.

I expected the beta to be really buggy but not to the point where it's not even playable. I guess I just expect to boot it up and it to work likes it's suppose to but I guess that's the downfall to PC gaming in general.

edit: I also wanted to note with the same setup when I played the Battlfield: Bad Company 2 beta I had zero problems it was extremely smooth for me. Not really sure where Battlefield 3 went wrong maybe they rushed it too quickly?


edit2: maybe this will help but I have ATI drivers 11.7 installed
