News Comments > NVIDIA Beta Drivers for BF3 Beta

Are these really new "drivers" or just setting profiles wrapped in the same old driver.

Why a game requires special drivers is beyond me. Adhere to the API standard(s): quit taking shortcuts.

^D^


Yes these are new drivers, not just a profile.

Learn how drivers really work and do some profiling with various games/apps and it will be more clear why you need special optimizations. A good place to start is the Mesa codebase or any of the open source linux 3d drivers.

Yep, EXACTLY why I will not be buying this game unless Blizzard changes this stupid shit. Even if they do, I'm waiting for a sale since this game IMO is a step backwards in several aspects from D2.

So far I have had very good luck with Samsung things. I'm a huge fan of them ATM.

But it is true that things are built really crappy these days. Receivers, refrigerators, TVs, washers/dryers, cars. They all are junk that don't last.

Back in the good ol days things were built to last forever. They also weren't built completely in china or similar places either on the cheap.

Ideally yeah... but remember these are the devs who admit they accidently released a dev build as a release build to the public, so they can't be doing that much double checking.


Yeah, good point there. lol

With such a sloppy and lazy development process, I'm surprised the game actually works at all and manages to do what it does.

So Steam just downloaded an update for me and the file that contains Feminist Whore is still there. LOL! I would have thought it would be removed by now, but maybe it takes a while for patches to trickle through the steam process.

I saved the file for future lulz since I'm sure it will be removed soon.

I think this developer now, or should, understands the value of $ grep -r FeministWhore *

Oh, and I'm sure others knew about this as I'm sure when they check in game files/code it goes through a review process before submission to the repository. So apparently this was thought to be funny and cool by multiple people, otherwise the code review would have been rejected.

Finally, the LOD system is messed up badly. You won't see objects (including zombies) until you're 20 feet away and suddenly they just pop in. I find this to be very annoying. My PC can handle drawing these things at a much farther distance, so why we are forced with the console's crappy LOD settings is beyond me.

I haven't seen any pop-in whatsoever. Even driving at a high rate of speed you can see the zombies at a long distance without things popping in.

The inventory can definitely be confusing at times, though.


That's weird. I see the issue really bad. This game has so many surprises!

What's the use of being a feminist whore if you don't have your own boobs to play with?

Also, whoever programmed in keyboard support should be forced to learn how to program


I agree the keyboard support is messed up. I can't for the life of me get the game not NOT activate USE when pressing F. I have F for move right and space for use, yet this damn game wants to use F for USE no matter what. This has caused me to close doors on myself, pickup crap I don't want, etc.

The inventory is indeed odd. It makes no sense. The movement is very strange as well. And the over use of bloom/saturation is annoying. Finally, the LOD system is messed up badly. You won't see objects (including zombies) until you're 20 feet away and suddenly they just pop in. I find this to be very annoying. My PC can handle drawing these things at a much farther distance, so why we are forced with the console's crappy LOD settings is beyond me.

They clearly have a lot more work to do on this game. Instead I guess they would rather divert attention to feminist whore. It sounds like the programmer for this joke is going to get fired. Which is a shame and not right at all for something as lame and unimportant as this.

Speaking of feminist whore, I wish I could put a sock in her mouth. I'm playing as feminist whore now and my god she needs to really STFU. Annoying ass beeotch fo sho.

For some reason, I noticed that the F key always acts as Use no matter what. I have Space for Use and F for strafe right yet F still acts as Use in addition to right. It's really weird and kind of messes me up some times.

For some reason, ever since I saved that dude on the beach early on in the game it has turned into a freaking slideshow. The performance is just pure crap. So bad it's not playable at all. I have a very high end machine too so I don't know WTF is going on.

I'd love to see a patch that allows you to disable the bloom. It's so overdone it's not even funny.

But I guess Tumbler feels that Ultimate Doom should have been included with Doom and Scourge of Armageddon should have been included with Quake.


No, that's not the same thing at all. With those games you got A LOT more content than modern day "DLC" gives for the price. Modern day DLC is a horrible rip off and is just nickle-and-diming.

It's irritating how these devs now just can't wait to bleed us dry.

This is why I like indie games so much more these days. There it's more about the games like it used to be, rather than making a killing.

Torchlight has all the goodness of Diablo 2 plus more! Diablo 3 has none of the goodness of Diablo 2, only better graphics - I guess - and so is looking to be like a big disappointment. Plus the always on DRM stuff. Bah.

I love Torchlight! T2 here I come!
