News Comments > Battlefield: Bad Company 2 Connectivity Fix
20. Re: Battlefield: Bad Company 2 Connectivity Fix Mar 4, 2010, 16:32 Bucky
 
I've been having the ping problem, even running as Admin in Win 7 64. I just did the PB update, so we'll see how much things have smoothed out when I log in later tonight.

This game really is a blast, though. The problems may set off the occasional bout of nerd rage, but I'm willing to deal with it in order to play. I'll be rather grumpy if things haven't settled down somewhat by this weekend, though.

Well, this update obviously hasn't made it very far. After half an hour of attempting to get into a game, I've given up. Been kicked out of every one I've managed to get into. And that was after 5 minutes of attempting to get my login to go through. The servers are all obviously getting hammered right now.

Guess I'll just try again later.

Question: What is hard core (HC)? Is that level difficulty in single player or something?


Across a few different games, such as Bad Company 2 and Modern Warfare 2 it's server settings that alter how multiplayer plays. Things are typically adjusted for greater realism, IE: no crosshairs, higher bullet damage, limited to no HUD (no minimap, no heads up waypoints or ammo counts), FF ON, etc. It creates a distinctly different feel. I personally enjoy both modes, so it's all good.

Edit: Wow, the quote system broke big-time. The only tag I can see in use is the /quote tag and it looks fine. All the other formatting stuff is.....odd.
Edit 2: Fixed. Make sure there's a space between the time stamp and the quoted text.

Loving this game to death.

I hit the kick bug a few times last night and was beginning to wonder about that. Glad they're on top of it.


Regarding kits: yeah, the basic stuff isn't unlocked at the start. It was a few minutes before I figured it out, and then a few more before I realized that I hadn't entered the code for the LE unlocks.

If only the server browser would show pings. All I get is a -. *sigh* Still, having a blast and it's my first time into the Battlefield series.

Now to keep playing so I can unlock the damn medkit.

/edit: Its been a while since i was excited abuot a game (maybe GTA4?) but I am pretty excited about Bad Company 2 tomorrow. Have some friends that are playing a "copy" of the game who also hvae their pre-order int he que, and they flat out say, this is the game you need. The new sliced bread I guess. Sounds like performance and hitboxes were worked over pretty good.

Tomorrow can't come quick enough. Just wonder what the Steam time release will be.

I keep checking to see if I can preload it yet. I didn't play the beta and I've never played any of the Battlefield games but the word of mouth got me. Now I just want to play.

Probably a stupid question but I'll ask it anyway: is the VIP code included with the Steam version? I'm assuming so, but I'd like to know for sure.

In my search for Bad Company 2 info, I noticed that Ars Technica just tossed up a blurb regarding BC2 vs MW2. I also found this:

I'm pretty much sold. This game seems to suit my playstyle so much better than MW2.

Can anyone that was in on the beta provide feedback on the game? I recently got in Modern Warfare 2 and have developed the same love/hate relationship with it that I had with CoD4. I'd like to kick the game to the curb altogether, but I need a replacement first.

Just poking around a bit, and I've gotta say I really like the update so far. Steam has been in desperate need of it for awhile now in my opinion. Sure, I've gotta pull down about 13 gigs of data again, but that's no biggie. I needed a break from MW2 anyway.

Just updated. My installed list is currently 38 games deep. Company of Heroes Opposing Fronts and Tales of Valor both started updating, CoD:MW2 seems to be re-downloading from scratch.

Probably one of the slickest, best produced games I've played in recent memory.

The art direction, attention to detail, writing, voice acting....everything is so beyond what most other dev studios are capable of nowadays that it'll be hard to go back to other games that I have on deck.

Agreed. After I get through my gaming backlog (damn Steam holiday sales...) I'll go back and take ForgedReality's advice. I played through ME1 as a Vanguard taking the Paragon path and I'm doing the same thing through ME2. I might start fresh from ME1 and take the Renegade path as a Sentinel through both games.

I suppose that's my high mark for a game; when I'm already thinking about the next play through before I've finished the first one.

One month after release, and no fix for the "get stuck in the air" bug... Grrr.

Creston

That one only hit me during the side mission with the transport thats ready to fall off of the cliff. Unfortunately, it repeated frequently. I had to restart at least a dozen times before I completed it. Other than that the game has been rock solid for me, and I'm loving it. I'm still working my way through, slowly.

I've always felt the WoT universe was vastly superior to the books themselves. I've never played anything using RJ's IP; It'll be interesting to see what can be done with it.

I think I was one of the few people that really enjoyed the 3D incarnations of Worms. Worms 4: Mayhem in particular was a blast--I used to play it quite a bit online.

I remember playing the demo for this ages ago. I loved it, but somehow never picked the game up. Glad I can finally change that.

I remember being interested in this game when it was first announced, but it seems to have fallen off of my radar since then. Now it's about to be released. I guess I'll have to dig around for opinions on it.

I'm not getting it until I hear some good Blue's poster reviews but I'm definitely considering it.

Skipping MW2 has really left me itching for a new PCMPFPS.

Me too. It's even worse now that I've just come back from a friends house where I played MW2 for a couple of hours. It was the first time I'd ever used the PS3, and I've gotta say I still hate console controllers for shooters.

If they add dedicated servers, I'll buy MW2. If not, no sale. *sigh*
