Battlefield 4 Patched

DICE has patched the Windows edition of Battlefield 4, their military shooter sequel. The update addresses a number of bugs and issues, though it may have introduced a couple of new ones, as word is SLI rigs may now exhibit graphical flickering and the revive bar sometimes gets stuck, two problems they say they are looking into. In addition to bugfixes, they also promise improvements to what they themselves refer to as the game's "so-called 'Netcode'." Here's the list of fixes:

  • Fix for a crash that would cause the game to stall, resulting in a sound loop. This should eliminate most of the problems relating to this.
  • Fix for the SUAV (introduced in the China Rising expansion pack) not exploding when hitting enemy soldiers. While these indeed should be deadly, they were never designed for “roadkilling” opponents.
  • Fixed one of the issues related to the so-called “Netcode” (see below for details).
  • Fix for an issue where 4x the damage from a vehicle's minigun would be applied to the chest when a player had the Defense specialization equipped.
  • Fix for player tags not always showing when needed to, resulting in players shooting team members.
  • Fix for graphical flickering appearing on terrain.
  • Fixed the instance where players suddenly would transition into Spectator Mode while playing the Defuse game mode.
  • Fix for a Defuse bug where none of the teams would win a round by letting the timer run out. -Fix for players getting stuck in the revive screen after being killed.
  • Fix for players getting stuck in the kill camera after being revived.
  • Fix for the game mode specific ribbons being counted twice in the multiplayer progression.
  • Made NVidia 331.82 or later driver versions mandatory for all players.
  • Disabled DirectX 11.1 on NVidia cards that have outdated drivers.
  • Fixed driver version not being properly detected on NVidia Optimus systems.
  • Fixed a minor crash that could occur when bringing up the scoreboard.

I don't know why DICE even bothers to patch any of their games. They know you suckers are just going to keep giving them money no matter what. Lol!

This still happens, a LOT.

That said, playing today was awesome as hell for some reason and I'm thoroughly enjoying the game.

Yea it is very common that the icon doesn't show from a distance.

Can anyone confirm if the sound loop crash is actually fixed? That is my number 1 issue with the game.

Distance doesn't seem to matter for me.

The tag only pops up after I've got the friendly centered on my screen for a good second or two.
Basically long enough for me to blow his brains out.

I would always crash on Siege of Shanghai and Dawnbreaker, I played full matches in both several times today with no crashes. I always got the sound loop on Dawnbreaker. I think they've fixed it.

I played 1 match where all squad leader icons showed in hardcore and I was super excited. Next match it was back to the same. Not sure why that is such a hard thing to fix. I'd rather they gave everyone normal icons if it meant there weren't as many TKs.

SLI is buggered by the patch, takes away all the grass but also makes the graphics flicker like crazy.

The revive bug is still there, you get the "accept revive or cancel" image stuck on your screen but can move around and shoot people.

THIS!!!! This is a huge plus for me and my Squad of Ultimate Badasses. We constantly ran into peeps with no tags. Resulting in the obvious TK. Frustrating for both Killer, and Killee! Very happy to see this fix.

You've got a point! This is why I still maintain I'd rather play Call of Duty. Sure CoD is the same thing every year, but it functions properly and delivers exactly what you expect. Battlefield games are such disasters...I think people should have ten times the hate for DICE delivering buggy terrible products than for Activision delivering working products that are clearly in demand.

CoD may be boring to some, but at least it isn't broken.

My guess would be that EA pressured DICE to have a product ready by a certain date regardless of the state it's in and now that they've likely made a return on the product, they can piece together one patch after another to fix what should have been stomped out if there was proper quality assurance.

But hey, at least they got it out before the release of Ghosts so that must make all of these bugs okay.

Just picked up BF4, and dear lord I wish I hadn't bought it from GMG as I would be getting a refund. Feels like a COD version of Battlefield 3.

I would if I cared/had bought the POS...

Everything after 314 is unstable for me, even just the core driver without that shadowplay or w/e it's called. SLI support being screwed is just the sloppy shit icing on the triple fecal cake.

It's essentially the same as BF3 gameplay-wise, so...

I just switched to this one - seems to be really stable for all games. Only game that does crash once in a while is BF3 and BF4.

Join a large Conquest map, fly and drive stuff - makes it way different.

In what way? There's no kill streak perks, movement feels completely different.

If you joined 64 player server and got bombarded with grenade spam then remember almost all the maps are designed for 24 players since that's the max number of players on last gen consoles.
