post #35861 of 52874
Too many to quote... I can hardly remember BF 4 free, but it is a FPS and you do get a BF3 metal for playing it... And it's what made up my mind to get BF3.....

As far as using a xbox controller, I never tried it with play4free, but a wired one does work with windows and BF3 (note: a wireless one connected via a charging cable will not work).... Keep in mind though that if you get use to a controller, you'll be like me ( a fish out of water) trying to learn to use the keyboard n mouse, after you've figured out that other players are kicking your butt because they are. The keyboard I think is a disadvantage to the controller, but the mouse side of things completely kicks the controllers butt from a speed and accuracy point (mostly speed). And when you're in a vehicle of any kind, the "free look" is a painfully slow joke with a controller.....


To the guy trying to play at 800x600 on a LT, Just buy a used PS3 and go that route. I think that's what it was written for anyhow, a console I mean...

Try the game for yourself.
Tuning your Laptop only goes so far. The rest relies totally on the power of the components that make the laptop. Which unfortunately your laptop's integrated GPU will not cut it. In BF3 there are quite a number of things that will eat an integrated GPU to pieces even at 800x600 you will have the other settings that will kill you even on the lowest level.

BF3 is simply a game that demands a dedicated GPU and will not take no for an answer.

Inserted Disk
Great, I have to install Origin, whatever
Installed from two disks, so far so good
Patching, 4.5GB patch uh ok....didnt know I was playing an MMO here
Finally, I click play on Origin, wait....Chrome opened, what the heck is Battlelog, wheres the game
Ok so I have to download another addon for this Battlelog before I can even play a match, kind of lazy DICE
Finally I start joining a server. didnt see any graphics settings tab so I'll try that later
Ok so I'm in, wait 4 classes? what is that
I'll just press the Caps Lock key to see the map and spawn points. ok that doesnt do anything, lame
Pick Assault, sprint towards a jeep, get there at the same time as someone else and end up driving
Drive out of the base, controls feel similar to driving in BF2, but everything is so hectic on the screen. Too much like 2142 not enough like BF2
Get blown up by a tank very far away, I guess thats similar to BF2 in ways
So now ill just be auto-respawning, nope, got to pick my spawn point every time, cool
Rinse repeat, nobodies coordinating just reminds me of Modern Warfare
Exited game, went to look for BF2 discs
seriously what the hell is this, because I was under the assumption it was a sequel to Battlefield 2, not Bad Company 2
so pissed right now

You mean you read nothing, or watched youtube video's? Just bought it? Let me know the next time you've got $60 ( $40 or even $20 for that matter) bucks burning a hole in your pocket, I'll give you my P.O......tongue.gif

I just have to get latest drivers and make sure the system is tuned up etc. But I want to at least be able to somehow run games like BF3. I know my system won't play good as higher end systems but I can't do anything about it since it's all about money.
But I just wanted to know if at least somehow I can play BF3 on my laptop since that would be great. The specs of my laptop is on my sig btw. I only have one computer and that's my Sony laptop.

You're looking at Single digit FPS at best.

Example of what it would be like.
The guy runs BF3 on a HD2000 Intel Integrated graphics card. It's unplayable.

Yeah, Bad Company 3 is definitely a let down to anyone who's come from BF2/1942. You'll get used to the quirkiness but I doubt you'll get used to the constant game bugs. The upcoming patch will fix about half of them at least, or so they claim.
