theglaze -> yeah, I didn't even have a game pad or joystick plugged in, but I couldn't fix the random firing issue until I deleted all Gamepad bindings.

I updated my mouse firmware too, that seems to have fixed the 'Unable to Rebind Mice buttons' issue, so now I can at least shoot as infantry.

However, with crossplay on or off, I cannot connect to multiplayer. I'm guessing their servers are just getting hammered right now?

Very annoying playing with bots, because there is no "Just Solo" option, it's Solo/Coop, so the game sometimes waits forever for people to join? Fucking idiotic design. Solo is not the same as Coop, DICE.

I have like 30 people from various Battlefield games in my Origin list, like 2-3 of them currently have BF2042, I wonder if they are getting spammed with "Join Coop with This Guy" messages when I try to run Solo.

I did play around with the choppers a little bit, they seem... different from previous battlefields, definitely more mouse focused with something close to the default key setup. Missiles definitely have a far lower rate of fire than BF4, for example. Hopefully the gunner seat is a beast to make up for the shit firepower the pilot has. I couldn't get the larger missile to lock onto any vehicles at all, so haven't actually shot that yet.

*EDIT* I may just give it a week, almost all of my normal BF teammates didn't even bother buying the pre-order. Wise decision it seems.

*EDIT 2* Okay, I was able to join a few multiplayer conquest large matches, and a hardware match. With Crossplay Off. Seems it's a known bug at the moment, error 2002G or 600P, Failure to load Persistence Data ore something along those lines. You also do not seem to stay on the same server after that map is over. Seems like a shit design that's hammering their servers, but who knows.

Bullet registry seems good, maybe even great. the Attachment system would probably be cool if I had some attachments. I revived my squad mates a bunch in Hardware, even though we had no clue what the fuck was going on, that seems like that could be a fun game mode with a voice commed quartet. Conquest Large... what a cluster fuck. It's as bad as it's ever been, rofl. I got revived once, had my vehicle repaired zero times in 4 matches. Squads immediately all ran off to the 4 corners of the earth. They are really making it apparent that you need to bring your own squad to even get anywhere in the game. Also, you can't currently carry a repair tool AND a rocket launcher, so of course no one has a repair tool. Very stupid design decision, since there are a shitload of vehicles and anti-vehicle seems required.

I don't know yet about this game though; I love the tank movement and mechanics, the tanks are basically the best parts of BF4 and BF3. Unfortunately, good luck getting into a tank from a regular spawn. Most of the vehicles seem pretty awesome, honestly. Although clearly the jeeps have some armor upgrade that I didn't unlock yet, as I was getting sniped and machine gunned in any jeep or hovercraft seat, and could do no machine gun damage to other light vehicles.

Also, very few people defending any flags, of course. No team voice comm as far as I can tell, and of course no public chat, only team, squad and 'party'.

I can't connect to multiplayer, so I played a bot match. Maps (so far) look gorgeous, and are gigantic in conquest large. They seem to have removed 3D spotting, or it works differently, it's hard as hell to spot infantry in first person view from inside a tank, and it seems only if you damage people(?) do they get an orange enemy marker over their head.

Something is seriously wrong with the mouse configuration, and currently as infantry my gun fires constantly. It seems to be a bug related to "Gunner" bindings, according to some forum rumors, but the suggestions to unbind the Fire button from gunner don't work, because I cannot change any Mouse bindings. Keyboard bindings can be deleted by holding ESC, Mouse bindings work the same way for some people, but apparently in my game it's "Hold Option *Veritcal Bar* " to unbind, whatever the fuck that is. So I can't unbind any mouse settings, and they all immediately get bound to Mouse 6, which is a movement rate button on my current mouse.

I wonder if it's a driver/mouse option? I have an EVGA X17 mouse, for the record.

First day bugs for a BF game, not really unexpected, but still. Not being able to stop shooting is a first.

Which you'll get immediately once hit the "Request Access" button...or at least I did.

Hrm, yes, you seem to be right, I got access to at least the play test immediately. I will mess with this later.

Guess I'm now officially spoiled by ray tracing. The game is only a few years old, and the graphics are looking rather dated to me.

This looks rather dated?!

I mean, ray tracing is nice, but model design, LOD, map design and LOD matter too.

Do you ever listen to Radiolab on NPR, Blue? You might give this episode from last year a listen.

The entire show is on parasites. In one segment a guy from England who has asthma and severe allergies, basically did his own research and learned allergies are really mostly a western world problem. Long story short, he infected himself with hookworms and he claims it has suppressed his allergies and his asthma. The medical support for this is not solid, there has been some limited research but it is not an accepted treatment currently. However there is some evidence the hookworms do "something" which slightly suppresses the immune response, which prevents the body from attacking them. The premise is that reduction in immune response is also what prevents/suppreses his allergic reactions.

I'm not suggesting Mrs. Blue infects herself with hookworms, but I do think you'll find the broadcast interesting.

Uggh, I'm sure more than a few macro parasites suppress the human immune system but... that definitely sounds like the cure is worse than the disease in most cases. Blegh, that's as bad as the people giving themselves tapeworms to lose weight.

Why is nobody mentioning Crusader No Remorse? Or isnt that EA? I could've googled before typing this....

Ok checked it. Yeah it's EA. So my bet is on Crusader: No Remorse. Literally was the first title that came to mind for me, somehow. Access denied; Invalid keycard, bitches!

That would be interesting, I loved that series back in the day, but trying to play those games now via GoG... the controls are atrocious and the engine is pretty terrible.

I'd love an updated version, but it may end up seeming pretty simplistic vs modern games.

In general for EA though: well, good, maybe, but how about make something new instead of cashing in on nostalgia?

I've tried to finish this game (solo, mind you) a couple of times. I can't bring myself to stay with it, something just feels bleh about the whole ordeal. It looks pretty good, it's setup reasonably well, the shooting is okay, enemy AI is somewhat lame for humans, and the robots are just annoying and unfun, the little flying drones especially. I maxxed out some of the classes/trees, but I probably have 7 times the played time in Division 2, for comparing it to somewhat similar games.

You really have to wonder what exactly is this DRM doing that its causing this kind of issue's.

It's quite simple really. Denuvo has a 5 machine limit. This should be very common knowledge to anyone who has ever read a hardware review in the last few years because the testers always run into this limitation when benchmarking certain games on different hardware. They have to wait a couple days for the machine limit to reset. Then they can test more.

The same machine limit issue is at play here. Denuvo does not recognize Alder Lake as one CPU. Denuvo thinks that the performance and the efficiency cores are different CPUs. Alder Lake instantly uses up all five "activations" of Denuvo and Denuvo refuses to grant access to the game.
It is obviously on Denuvo to fix this with support from Intel. I'm sure that a solution will be found fairly soon. From what I have read only certain older versions of Denuvo are affected so it should hopefully be easy to fix. Maybe the publishers will even finally remove Denuvo from some of the older titles on these lists.

Ah, thank you, RogueSix. I was wondering; everybody loves to hate Intel, but this definitely seemed like more of the responsibility lays with the DRM itself.

Each class has strengths and weaknesses that complement each other, true, but they're all capable of doing everything alone. The main difference will be in how you traverse the caverns -- Scout has a grappling hook, Gunner a zipline, Engineer places pop-up platforms, and Driller effortlessly burrows through rock. Then in solo mode, you also get a support bot that follows you around and takes orders, which is upgradable and customizable sort of like a miniature fifth class. He'll support you in combat with machine gun and rockets, mine hard to reach veins, carry some large objects, build or defend certain objectives, and revive you when you're downed. Probably two-thirds of my 150+ hours in this game have been played solo.

Wow, you got WAY more out of DRG solo than I did. I ran out of steam digging through rock pretty quickly, it felt more like doing chores than a game. Disclaimer: I feel that way about most survival/gathering games though, so take that with a few pounds of ore, etc.

Well, I went all AMD for my current gaming desktop, so ideally this will not be my direct problem, but lol, Intel.

Or is this really more of a Microsoft issue? Or a Denuvo/Some other DRM issue? I guess whoever patches first?

I own and have enjoyed so many Devolver Digital published games, so that it feels ilke their company would be a stock I'd be happy to invest in, hoping for the best. Like 3DFX back in the day. Then, they will totally shit the bed and their stock will become worthless, like 3DFX back in the day.

Although this announcement is a little weird, almost 1 billion dollars worth of stock, but just on some subset of the London Stock Exchange only? Testing the waters I guess? Probably did not want to be gobbled up by Sony and other mega corps.

Sigh. Morbius wasn't even really ever a good comic, mediocre at best. His best comics were arguably team ups with Blade, Ghost Rider, and some even lesser known Marvel B or C team people. And it's the Sony team, not the main Marvel team, making this film. I don't expect much at all from Morbius.

Plus, from a powers/abilities standpoint, he's basically unbeatable by any regular humans or even most powered opponents... Superman syndrome, his only real enemy is himself, etc. or in most stories, giving in to his bloodlust too much. They also seem to have chickened out and made Leto look human a lot of the time; Morbius in most of the comics stayed horrifically Nosferatu level ugly, once he had all his powers. It gave him a bit of a challenge as far as interacting with other people and trying to do good deeds without just being relentlessly hunted.

Oh well, I'll wait for this latest slew of Marvel movies to show up on Disney+, I guess. If the Sony movies ever even make it there.

Nice, I'll probably reinstall SF3 vanilla in January. I played through the original release, and enjoyed it; it was on par with SpellForce 2's campaign. Fun, but also clunky, etc. Quite a few Day 1 bugs, but they patched it up nicely. I'm occasionally playing the ogre DLC standalone now, when I'm not playing anything else, and it's nicely polished, but basically more of the same vanilla and first DLC campaign, just with big ogre/troll/etc. units.
