I just get a crash to desktop after I choose either single or multiplayer. Screwing with the video configuration file doesn't help nor does starting from different desktop resultions. Not sure what else to try. I vaguely recall a similar problem with BF1942 and a refresh rate option?

This problem occurs on this system: P4/3.6, 4 gigs ram, 6800 Ultra, 1920x1200 LCD display.

Naturally, the North American EA forums for this game have not been enabled. The first long thread in the UK forums is about this problem. No resolution.

This is on a machine that runs UT2k4 at 1600x1200 maxed with an average of 60fps; and Doom 3 flawlessly maxed out. Framerate wasn't the problem in BF2, it was random stuttering.

The word "random" sums it up nicely. I've played it for several hours now, and have not had a single issue once I installed the nvidia drivers included with the demo. I run it at 1024x768 with no AA and all settings at High, on a A64 3000+ @ 2.44ghz, 1gb DDR400, and a GF6800 GTOC. What's your video card, just out of curiousity? It might be an ATI thing... I've heard mixed reports.

*******************************************
"Keep yelling all you PC owners (I am one).

All your fucking bitching just makes game companies that much more confident that the PC game industry is D-E-A (fucking)D

DEAD

All game companies are going to make console games first. We all must pray that the consoles get it right this time and allow patches, have a keyboard/mouse, full internet browsing, etc.

The days of PC gaming are gone. Think not? Name a game in the next 12-18 months besides BF2 that has you by the balls?

Thats right. Guess you went to E3 right? NOTHING for the pc. Enjoy your last year or two with your computer. ”
*******************************************

People like you shouldn’t even be allowed to breed. PC games will forever rule at the two most important categories: Online capabilities and number of modifications available.

I have one last suggestion, delete your download and go troll the gamespy console loving forums. This is a PC gamers forum. Duh

you are the one that needs to grow up - the game controls your emotional states

It does? Could have sworn I was just posting about the problems Ive encountered so others are aware of them, and I was doing so without resorting to childish comments like yours.

And then jackasses like you insult us for doing so since it is in your nature to be this way. Post after post of yours are trolling bullshit to push peoples buttons.

The "mysterious case of constant stuttering" might be someone with a bit too optimistic video settings?

I tried it on several different setups ranging from low to high and a number of resolutions. To me any stuttering is too much stuttering. It could have been the atrocious lag. Whatever. The game still bites.

This is on a machine that runs UT2k4 at 1600x1200 maxed with an average of 60fps; and Doom 3 flawlessly maxed out. Framerate wasn't the problem in BF2, it was random stuttering.

Movig my settigns to all HIGH in Video give me the "mysterious stuttering problem". So as someone else said, maybe yuo are a little up on your horse if you think your rig is the cat's meow.

Try moving shaders and some of the more intense settings down a notch. I am going to play with it a bit and let you know my final settings.

So because there are some glaring problems with the game you are going to insult us for pointing them out? Typical bullshit coming from you space captain. When will you grow up?

you are the one that needs to grow up - the game controls your emotional states.. sounds pretty childish to me

a sense of humor wouldnt hurt either - but then again you need a brain for that kind of thing, so i guess that rules you out

I had a problem when i tried to run it (could not find d3dx_25.dll or something similar.. i tried to install direct x and got a "not a signed product" without a chance to continue anyway..
then i dloaded the stand alone version of directx.. and when i run that.. it says its updating.. but the update takes a blink of an eye and its done.
the demo doesnt start.. just a black screen that drops me to the desktop as soon as i doubleclick the icon.
can i uninstall directx completely (without an OS reload) and then reinstall directx clean?

254. BF2 Demo First Impressions: Jun 10, 2005, 21:34 xXBatmanXx
 
(haven't received an e-mail from anyone for yousendit.com link - might be hotmail's fault.)

Took less than a minute to get to a screen to do something.
Didn't load "their" video drivers.
Took less than 4 minutes to configure contols and other settings.
Set resolution to 1024x768 32 bit.
Left Sound default
Cranked mouse sensitivity up
Put everything in the video settings to Medium
Played the map single player with zero issues
Had a lot of fun on the MEC's roof with my SAW.
Hangun for supprt looks to be a Beretta 92 (9mm maybe?) - probably supposed to be a .40 or .45 though. (could be any number of Beretta nockoffs, Taurus PT92 AR92, etc.)
Team listened to commands and followed me around the outside of the map to get to the back of their base (very cool)
Took over their base and pinched them in the middle.
US Wins.

I dont know what the fuss is about.
I am going to crank up settings to see if I get the choppiness everyone is talking about.

/edit:
Systems Specs:
Pent 4 2.53
1 Gig RAM
New Gaming Harddrive (EIDE 7200 RPM)
Nvidia GeForce 5500 256mb (drivers dated 4/1/2005)

Only 2 complaints from me, but they are probably by design:
1. Not much recoil (probably to appeal to the masses)
2. WAYYYYY to many bullets to kill someone.

I am completly amped for this game.
Checking websites for pre-order....I hate EBGames, but I might have to fall to the dark side.

you guys want bugs? go play Boiling Point

but seriously - buy some bigger panties fellas

So because there are some glaring problems with the game you are going to insult us for pointing them out? Typical bullshit coming from you space captain. When will you grow up?

I particularily like the texture on the rock wall that rotates around the polygons like its liquid. And as Ive already said, the front end is a buggy freaking mess. But Im sure those that use default controls arent having much problem.

Read the thread. It is exclusive to Gamespot for 24 hours. Fileplanet agreed to adhere to this while plenty of others didn't. Gamespy has however sent an email to Founders Club Members with a link to the file being hosted on 3dgamers.com

Gotta like this bug...
No way to back out of the Manage Accounts screen except to quit the game. So I quit out of the game and sitting at my desktop but the ingame music is still playing.

Manage Accounts is comepletely screwed, keeps telling me I already have an account. So I try and retrieve the account, but says my email address is invalid. So which is it? I have an account with that email address already or not.

Whomever designed the front end to this game is an idiot.
