[Official] Battlefield 3 Information & Discussion Thread - Page 817

post #8161 of 52874
Coming from a background in competitive CS, I have always had a difficult time getting into the Battlefield series.

I think this mostly has to do with the feel of the inputs, there is an inherent degree of positive mouse acceleration and movement always seemed "floaty" as if there were input lag of sorts. It is not a frame rate issue, but one within the configuration of the game itself.

I've tried every mousefix, a manual edit of gamesettings.ini but still nothing has seemed to get rid of the floaty feel to the game.

That, and it really is a piss off to have to run the kind of distance required to meet a target with the alternative being a wait for a vehicle to respawn.

EDIT: On a side note: EA servers (now Origin?) have always seemed to be flaky and now they have fully dropped Steam support in favour of their move to Origin.. Another account, another friends list; this makes the game less accessible, at least from my perspective.

My hopes are high for BF3 though, hopefully it will cater to "raw input" and the gameplay will allow for more consistent action.

That's why it's Battlefield Battlefield 3 feels really good tho.

BC2 feels like, Vietnam and BF2 feel fine. BF3 didn't feel like that.

so you're saying CS felt more realistic than BF??
i know bla bla bla BF is a game and not a simulation; but still, compared to CS it could as well be real life..

EDIT: apparently the steelbook edition comes with every pre-order bonus

Haha, no I'm not comparing the realism or its validity as a simulator. I'm talking plainly in mouse and character movement and my resulting experience with mouse acceleration and "input lag".

which BF did you play that resulted in that feeling...

2142 and BC2. I think BF2 may have felt the same, but that was a while ago.

I'm curious too. I have played all the BF titles and I find BC2 to be such an improvement over BF2 in just about every way to do with gunplay, aiming, etc.

This is what I've tried to remove the "float".

If you've played other FPS games, it will be easy to notice the difference.
