    do you really need all these sound effects
    I've never made a video using sound clips like this, so I gave it a try.

    Only thing I dont like about BF3 is how I need to have it on all low for a consistent 60FPs.

    I am running dual ATI HD 4870s, and to be honest, I was sort of surprised I wasn't able to play on at least medium. Every other game I have ever played on this rig (including bad company 2) allowed me to play on all high with some AA. Feels bad man.

    Are you kidding?



    Yeah, cheers EA. As you can plainly see, this did probably not come from some poor sod getting underpaid to reply to thousands of annoyed people with copy and paste solutions.

    And the best thing? an update sometime in November created these problems, because around 1300 people last I checked bitched about how the game became broken in the comments of the update post.
    Note that I said "developers", whom have been releasing quite a few patches for the past few months. I never denied that EA are pricks about this sort of thing. Even if you want to say that DICE also doesn't care, I would still say that, at worst, they're really just caring about the wrong things.

    You bought your rifle a copy of the game as well? That's really nice of you!


    But in all seriousness, this game is absolutely intense when the teams are neck and neck - I just came out of a round on Karkand, with the tickets going back and forth the whole game. Me and my friends did our best to hold the lines. They took everything up to E, where we held them off for 6 minutes, then pushed hard into C to break their vantage.

    We won by 1 ticket. Final score 1 - 0 our favor. Easily one of the greatest rounds I've ever played.

    Playing this game with a friend on skype really makes the game great. The stuff that just happens sometimes is great. One time, he was pinned down, and I wanted to drive to him and I accidentally drove over the entire squad that pinned him down.

    Am I the only person of the opinion that the SMGs and PDWs are dogshit compared to the FAMAS or F2000? Either of those weapons has something like twice the damage output in the same length of time.

    Edited:

    Also, despite my earlier post stating that I'd fixed my framerate issues, I still get massive drops when turning sometimes. Any solution? I've reduced my resolution, running all settings on low and made a user.cfg with this in it:
    Code:
    render.drawfps 1
    renderdevice.ForceRenderAheadLimit 0
    renderdevice.TripleBufferingEnable 0
    On an empty server I average around 70fps, dropping to 50 when turning. But on a 64 player server I average 45 when idle and it drops to 16-20 when turning. A real pain in CQB.

    I was sniping once and I saw an enemy run up to an oblivious teammate. Just as he was about to stick his knife in I shot him in the head, my teammate survived and looked around himself in a very confused manner. I felt like his personal guardian angel
    Was it Kharg Island?!

    Well, the UMP is still pretty alright as a general weapon and, in my limited console experience, the P90 can be pretty good at scaring and/or disorienting enemies as long as you aren't going purely head-to-head. PDW-R seemed like it was pretty much useless compared to my other options by the time I got it, and the MP7 seems to be really situational.

    There's something magical about being in a transport helicopter with a decent pilot. Switching to the minigun to shoot some guys, switching to the side to javlin a tank, then using your repair tool to keep you in the air.


    I dunno what it is, but seeing the ground be like 3m away as you repair the chopper, trusting the pilot to keep you airborne and trusting the pilot to set you up with shots (or, if i'm flying, doing the same for my sqaudmates...)

    It's magical.

    Should happily run it on medium/low settings, the minimal requirement is a Radeon 3870 or higher.

    Why don't you buy internationally then and pay expensive shipping? It would probably still be cheaper.

    It's a shame they decided to replace the awesome loading music with ~so real ambient sounds~ in BF3, that shit was awesome in BF2.

    Also, while I was doing a test stream for my terrible capture card, this happened:


    If you think MAVs are annoying on PC, try being restricted to a joystick to shoot it down.

    Today a mean helicopter pilot decided to pick on me when I was running out in the open. I dodged his first barrage of bullets by jumping off a small rock face, but then I ran out of cover. As he adjusted his aim, I emptied my assault rifle into his cockpit as a screw you. That made me wonder: can you actually kill the pilot by doing that, or is the glass invulnerable to all but explosives?
