Yea, the AA is garbage vs. planes. you NEED to unlock heatseakers for them to be any good.

Also, anyone notice planes are IMPOSSIBLE to fly with a ping over about 50? I was on a 70 ping server, and about every 0.5 seconds my plane would jerk randomly.

There is one mobile AA gun on each side.

Your correct. I just finished a game where the jets where camping at our base destroying everything and the guy in the aa guns was garbage. I had to get in the aa tank and hit them till they left. I hope they fix the hits on the planes. I think they should take more damage.

I wouldn't waste money on DDR2 memory this late in the game. The system is dangerously old for a game like this. A new platform would be recommended from me. P67 or Z68 motherboard, i5 2500k and some memory is the best start to a new system.

A brand new GPU right now, if he had to get ONE thing~ is the best thing I'd go for if he doesn't want to do all that, but upgrading the current system is just going to turn those upgrades into obsolete hardware the instant he puts it into his system.

Jets should take less damage to kill~ and Helicopters need to be able to take more damage atm.

man, well i just spent this day trying to get BF3 to work better on my pc.

i overclocked my cpu to 4 GHz and it seems to be in the 30 - 40 fps range on some maps, and other maps it is at 60 -70 fps. i saw that my cpu usage was at 99 - 100% usage. the fps doesnt change that much with changing the gpu settings. for gpu usage its around 60% each card.

so does this really mean that my cpu is bottlenecking the game for me? i guess ill just have to wait till the game comes out, i really hope its more lenient on my cpu then ^^

what man I got a 955 too I didn't even check my temps or anything everything was smooth for me.
post #19570 of 52878
Well I just rolled back to 280.26 drivers, and I'm getting much better gpu usage, the usage still dips but its stays much closer to 99%

Edit: this is in caspian.
