  1. Any idea how tight the timings can get at stock speed?

    The Unofficial Battlefield Bad Company 2 Thread

    It's a bug with the previous patch. Several friends and myself have had several crashes since the patch on a daily basis. It's not your system it's the game.

    I'm liking these new maps too. Noticed that the all weapons bronze star and all bronze stars insignias are now working. Pre-ordered Battlefield Vietnam today and can't wait.

    The Unofficial Battlefield Bad Company 2 Thread

    Had an update overnight and it looks like the PC got the red dot and ACOG sights for the M14 and the G3. Battlefield Vietnam is scheduled for December 18th-21st and the new maps for BFBC2 are rumored for December 1st. http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2010-11-30-bad-company-2-vietnam-release-date

    How much RAM?

    As far as gaming stick with 4GB, you won't notice any benefit beyond that. I've put 8GB in my systems before and couldn't see any difference. Running 12GB now and can't see the difference between 6GB. I do it because it takes one question out of the equation, "do I have enough RAM?" and fixes my obsession. If you have the budget then go for it but your money could be better spent on things like a better a graphics card(your best place to put money in a gaming rig), faster CPU, CPU cooler to overclock more, etc. Don't count on being able to overclock that RAM, it's never guaranteed to reach those speeds and be stable.

    Official Quick Mushkin Contest

    I've used Mushkin for years, it's all I use in my builds. Using 12GBs(2GBx6) DDR31600 Red Line #998691. I'd like to see you bring these back.
  12. No it won't change you don't need to worry. I'm not a very nice guy sometimes so my own hypocricy knows few bounds. This topic just strikes a chord.
  13. A cheap shot that doesn't make your side of the argument look any better. Moral decay. Rome was an empire that succumbed to this. The more we look away from it the further we slide. Next you'll make the argument that stealing is just a redisposition of wealth to those enterprising enough to take what they want. I suppose you already have as cheating is stealing much of the time. I now know much more about you than I wish I did. Nothing personal but I wouldn't trade or deal with you in the market place forum no matter how good the deal or how good the money.

    Upcoming Battlefield(s) Information

    I love this game and consider it my favorite FPS to date. However if I were having problems that went unresolved for 8 months after I paid $50, it would be a fail for me too. On the grand scale of things I'd say it was a financial success. Here lately though since it's gotten cheaper and cheaper there are more hackers playing with less to lose and punkbuster is doing a lousy job of catching them. Watched a guy go 152-8 with an M9 pistol from all over the map today in a game of rush. PunkBuster is the biggest fail but it had kept them at bay unlike MW2 which just didn't care. Thanks Krazyxazn for posting all of the info that you do, I'd miss a lot of it if it weren't for you. Really appreciate it.

    Can I run black ops

    Just a quick suggestion, put the specs of your computer up for review. How could anyone possibly know if your PC can run Black Ops if we don't know anything about your PC? Here are the minimum system requirements: http://www.gamersmint.com/call-of-duty-black-ops-minimum-system-requirements-revealed ◦OS: Windows Vista/XP/7 ◦Processor: Intel Core2 Duo E6600 or AMD Phenom X3 8750 or better ◦Memory: 2GB ◦HDD: 12GB ◦Video: Shader 3.0 or better 256MB NVIDIA GeForce 8600GT/ATI Radeon X1950Pro or better ◦Sound: DirectX 9.0c-compatible ◦DirectX: 9.0c It doesn't take a lot of hardware horsepower to run.

    The Unofficial Battlefield Bad Company 2 Thread

    I noticed today that the AT4 rocket launcher is much improved and everything they said would be fixed in the patch has been done. Also the 40mm shotgun now takes 50 kills for a gold star instead of 100 kills-it was the only gadget requiring 100 kills but it's now in-line with the others at 50. The VADS is now so screwed up it's unusable. It was supposed to have it's movement improved but now you can't move it at all. Looks like the chopper gunners are going to have it wide open for a while. Bronze star insignia still isn't working. I'm still getting killed by every tard with an M60 and the Carl Gustav. They seem the same but I haven't used them myself and won't. The revive invincibility is now fair. No more killing a guy, he gets revived and kills you while you can't kill him. At tleast that's fixed. The blue line down the center of my screen from the chat box is gone as well. A welcome improvement. Noticed that guys running around with shotguns aren't able to hip fire off kills while running now. Other than the VADS screw up and the continuing bronze star insignia failure the patch seems to have made some nice improvements.

    It's still not fixed.

    The Unofficial Battlefield Bad Company 2 Thread

    Here is the complete fix-list for the patch - All Weapons Bronze Insignia requiring an unobtainable bronze star for the tracer dart – requirement removed. - Improved Hit registration made through several fixes and some of the hitboxes themselves have been changed. This will increase the accuracy of guns. - Blue box chat window removed - The 2 second immunity when spawning/being revived will now be immediately removed either by firing, zooming, or any movement (move, crouch, jump). A Spawning Player can still orient passively in the Game World.. - 3D vision fixed. - Fixed slug shotgun zoom crosshair on PC so they better represent the long range accuracy. Crosshairs now close more on PC, similar to consoles. - Reduced slug shotgun hip accuracy to require zooming for consistent long range accuracy. Hip accuracy is now on par with the semi automatic weapons. - Fixed a bug on PC where the G3 would do less damage than intended. - Fixed VADS turning sensitivity on PC so it performs like the ZU23. - Reduced VADS push back and damage to balance it with the ZU23. - Fixed a bug where vehicle countermeasures would fail to remove tracer darts at high speed. - Reduced the reload time for vehicle countermeasures. - Slightly increased the AT4's damage vs armor to emphasize its anti vehicle role while keeping it balanced vs armor. - Increased the AT4’s top speed and acceleration so users spend less time exposed when firing. - Increased the AT4's splash damage so it competes with other AT weapons vs infantry. The AT4 still has the least splash damage of all AT weapons. - Reduced the splash damage of the Carl Gustav to bring it in line with other explosive weapons. The Carl Gustav still has the most splash damage of all AT weapons. - Increased the 1 shot kill range of the M95 body shot to counter its lower rate of fire. - Fixed a bug with the SVU that gave it better close range damage than other semi auto weapons. - Reduced all weapon damage to the MCOM by 50%. - Fixed an C4 vs MCOM exploit on Atacama Desert. - Fixed a bug with FOV when aiming the M1911. - Lowered the close range damage of the AN94 to highlight its long range role. - Increased the accuracy of the F2000 on the move to highlight its role as a mobile AR. - Increased the close range damage of the shotguns to give them a greater advantage vs slugs. - Slightly lowered the damage of the M60 to balance its accuracy advantage vs other LMG's. - Slightly lowered the damage of the MG3 at close range to balance it with other high rate of fire weapons. - Slightly increased the damage of the UH60.

    How many games unplayed?

    Unfortunately Medal of Honor goes into the unplayed and unfinished category for me all too soon. Section 8 is a game I own that nobody seems to play and I've only got about 90 minutes of play myself. It got lost in the shuffle of other games.
