I think you should follow what he said. Relax. The game will be fixed. This happens to EVERY GAME! =) Dice so far is amazing with having the least bugs on launch. Its mostly a pc Hardware issues or drivers. ATI still needs to release there official drivers for BF3. Nvidia i bet it working on improving there drivers. Relax and enjoy the game until the bugs are fixed. Its not the end of the world. If you were a programmer you would fully understand more as why there is issues.

The hard copy gets transferred over to Origin. Only reason for hard copy was for more than one pc or exclusive content. I personally like a hardcopy incase something happens to my online account or something of that nature.

Some guy on yahoo answers named Hoven, posted this:

The game is installed via Origin. When the installation/download bar reaches about 55% (or so), it will prompt you to insert disc 2. After its done, it will download additional stuffs which took me about 20 minutes at 600kb/s.
Everything took me about an hour and a half from popping the disc in to running the game.


So it looks like it uses my disk.. hmm :O I doubt it though, because my download speed is at 300KBps. this has been an average for me for 2 years, so I somewhat doubt it's using my disk.

EDIT:: ROFL THATS 'CUS I WAS DLN BC2

Origin should have automatically downloaded it after the game was installed (Physical disk version) or downloaded it already (with the pre-load digital).

When you launch the game from origin it opens Battle-log in your browser, is it not even doing that or what?

I just filled out my info in the Google doc and I also applied to the OCN platoon. Origin name is BoomBox150. This game is fun.
