I discovered that there was a conflict between the refresh rate program I was using, and the new NVIDIA drivers.

It seems that NVIDIA has fixed the problem as I can now override the default 60mhz to 85mhz in the display settings.

Thank you for that Razor, and editing it twice to get it exactly twice. I now feel more stupid for having read it.

24. Refresh Rate May 31, 2003, 14:01 EJ
 
Try going to control panel-> diplay -> advanced -> displays

Click on the tab above your monitor. Make sure DCC isn't being used. Then set your monitors max resolution and refresh rate. You might need your monitor's manual or check online for it. If you set it below your max refresh rate it might give you weird refresh rates. I used my manual and set it at 1600x1200 and 180mhz. Works fine.

Let's just hope it's the website that's wrong and not the game - I wouldn't put it past them.

If that jap one is bolt action, won't the users get massacred by other assault rifle users who have automatic fire?

Yeah, I was amazed at the utter crapness of their scoring system. Surely they must know that people won't play as a team unless it gets them personal recognition. I would have done scoring something like this:

Every 20 vechicle health points fixed: +1 score
Every 15 person health points healed: +1
Every enemy person killed: +5
Every enemy tank destroyed: +3 (+the score from the people inside)
Every enemy APC or aircraft: +2 (+the ppl inside)
Every enemy jeep: +1 (+the ppl inside)
Every enemy ship: +5 (+the ppl inside)

For team kills and/or team equipment destorying, I'd subtract twice that score - ie. if you're in a situation where it's 50/50 if you'll blow up a friend or enemy, *don't* do it.

I know score doubling only encourages deliberate TKers as they want a huge - score but the score doubling wouldn't be my solution. The way to stop TKers is the same was as TKers stop gamers - frustration. When you die, your respawn time is an extra 20 seconds for every team kill you did in your previous life. If you messed up, you get a slap on the wrist. If you go mad, you'll be bored. Also, if you kill a teammate who has TK'ed since they last died, you don't get penalized (like loss points for the kill or get an increased spawn time) so people can kill a deliberate TKer without dmaging their own score. I'd be confident that the majority of people wouldn't go killing people who screw up the odd time.

It amazes me that DICE released the scoring and TK system they way they did. Were they born yesterday?

Cheers,

I first played this game and hated it. Then a friend showed me what they did to it six months later at version 1.3 and it is FANTASTIC. I like what the poster mentioned about engineers and medics receiving points for doing their job. If they reward teamwork, people will play together better. I'm always an engineer, in there repairing people's tanks and making them last during a slug-fest. And lets not forget those medics, who selflessly heal other players on the front lines while half the team is circle-jerking at the airfield.

For BF1942, there's a file that some people need to edit to allow the game to run in a refresh rate other than 60hz - VideoDefault.con. There's a line that mentions refresh rates, should be set to 1.

I really love the game, I didn't have it as long as most of you so I can't compare it to prior versions. I just hope the patch doesn't screw up the Merciless Mod with the pure server thing. Merciless Mod made the game into more of what it should have been.

if you have problems with refreshrates, try powerstrip or refreshforce. doesnt matter what driver or card you have, it will ALWAYS keep the desired refreshrate.

Yeah I liked the AA guns more before the nerf but I don't think that nerfing them ruined the game. Anyway I am hoping that I will fix my audio bugs...
