Hope the demo still lets you play if you don't have a supported card. My buddy wants to run it with a Geforce Ti4600. His other specs are up to the task. Hoping he can run it on low.

Supposedly, Fileplanet, X-Fire, and Yahoo are all banned from redistributing the demo for 24 hours.

Should be OK, you're going to have some serious load times with only 512MB RAM. I just upped mine to 2GB because I hear even 1GB has a lot of swapping problems.

This is a common misconception.
Doesn't matter how much RAM you have if your HD is lacking the speed for a swap file and access time is bogged down.

As sweet at is would be, they don't program games to run completly in a swap file. A lot of HD accesses are still required.

"So yeah... somehow I feel that my download (50% done @ 55kb/s) might be in vain... "

the demo readme seems to suggest geforce4s aren't supported.
unless i can't read.
which is possible i guess.

yeah, the video card is the main bottleneck now. The only thing is that I'd rather buy a PCI Express (or variant) card at this point but that entails a new mobo, new CPU, new memory most likely etc etc

Malkovich,

I can "beat" that one easily:

Athlon XP1800+
GeForce4 Ti4200
1GB RAM (since yesterday - 512MB cost only $39 these days)

So yeah... somehow I feel that my download (50% done @ 55kb/s) might be in vain...

Well, pretty sure you'll run it. That vid card is hurting you.

At the risk of outing myself as a non-geek... wtf is a sha1 hash?

It's like an MD5 hash, but stronger. Mostly used in LDAP.

If you don't know what an MD5 hash is, it's a fingerprint that lets you check if a file has been altered from it's original. If you run md5sum on a file, you get a hash back, and if it matches what everyone else's is, then you know it's not corrupted and/or hasn't been tampered with (had a virus added, etc.)

BitTorrent says the SHA1 hash for Battlefield_2_Demo_GC.zip is 3A57AE2537341AAD087FD0EDF4C3616DE9AA02BE.

This is the Pirate Bay torrent, so everyone knows.

The filerush torrent (Battlefield_2_Demo.exe) SHA1 hash is:
CEE0722EC55D9BB9E04FB5E139D7E50ABE02E9E5

The different is probably because the pirate bay one is zipped. Not a concern.

So, uhm, I haven't been following the game that much - guess someone in here should have an idea of the minimum system specs?

Here's my ultra cool system...any idea how it'll play?

Athlon XP 2800+
520MB high end RAM
ATI Radeon 9600 PRO
Asus A7N8X Deluxe mobo

yeah...it's a POS - just waiting to do a complete overhaul at some point...probably right before Quake 4 comes out I think

At this moment I would personaly like to thank syd2.ausgamers.com and sunnyvale_ns25_extsunnyvale-ns25-ext.us.atari.com who are my two big download peers at the moment. You guys get extra beer at the after party.

oh, and a fuck you to ip70-176-164-201.ph.ph.cox.net. Don't host a seed if you can't get your goddamn NAT set up right.
