Actually, after posting here I went over to the Novalogic JO forums and many people with high-end rigs were having similar problems.

Hmm, not sure then, I have a P4 3.0 Ghz, 2 Gb RAM, and a ATI 9800 Pro (which is supposed to be slow??) and I consistantly get around 30 FPS (more when screen is not so busy) and I play on 100+ person servers all the time with all graphic settings to the highest. I think my lowest FPS was around 24 when the screen had a huge amount of objects on it but even that isn't horrible.

It could be the engine, or it could be the drivers that people are using, hard to tell.

I worry for the future of PC games when devs aren't able to meet the challenge of making their games run on all possible configurations.

It's just crap engines. Far cry runs brilliantly looks gorgeous and scales really well for older systems. BF1942 engine was put together by blind monkeys.

The demo just runs like crap, even on the lowest settings. Was anyone able to play the demo decently?

My specs:
P4 1.7
512 mb ram
4600 ti 128 mb
santa cruz sound card
xp home

edit: 4 mb cable internet connection

The Dev states the minimum CPU speed should be 1.2 Ghz (which I know from experience is a Slide Show) but recommends a P4 2.4 Ghz (I have a 3.0 Ghz with all details highest and it runs good, just recently upgraded from the 1.2 Ghz), this is from the box. You should be able to judge by that. Personally, I'd say the min should be P4 2.x Ghz or greater.

Why no cool boats? On foot combat gets old. Tanks would make it so much better. Foot vs foot is like quake with 1 hit kills.

It's obviously that you haven't played the released game, the demo does give a limited amount of vehicles, but I can, from now a full's day worth of playing, say that there are PLENTY of vehicles in the game. No, no tanks... yet, but there are armoured vehicles with heavy cannons. And you Vipermmx, of all people, should know that Dev's will fix bugs (as you so much back Soldner with that exact arguement) and add to the game as time goes on. JO has a GREAT starting foundation and it will only get better.

And yes... there ARE cool boats, awesome friggin gun ships, HUGE hovercrafts etc. You just simply are not talking from experience, if you haven't played the full, released game then you are only making an assumptious opinion, and whule thats your right to have an opinion, I can, from experience, say you are wrong. Sorry dude.

From now on, going off of my past theme, any statements that Vipermmx makes like this I will call a Vipermmx revelations moment!©

No I dont think its me its Blue guys... You like limited gameplay heh.

Suprised any here like OFP. You Delta guys think this game is a wet dream? Running around shooting at hundreds if targets with spam weapons and catching helo rides? Sounds boring.

BFV owns this game period.

I wish I could play it. Upon launching the game, it actually resizes my hardware monitor settings and locks up the computer. I have to go into the monitor settings (on the monitor not the PC) and resetup my display. I can't see a fix for this anywhere. I have an ATI Radeon 9000.


Try rolling back to the 4.1 catalysts (or upgrading to them if you're using older). The beta had that same problem with me and that was the only solution I was given.

This game rocks and is easily worth $49.99. Haven't played BF:V since I got it.

9800pro on a P4 3.2 with a gig o' ram and no problems.

There seems to be a fps problem with the Radeons at the moment with J-Ops

Ahh, thanks for the heads up, I'll keep an eye out for 4.7. I'm doing 'ok' with the FR, so far my enjoyment hasn't been decreased by them at all, and if they are going to improve then all the better.

Aint worth 49.99

Good, because I got it for $39.99. :p

$34.99 at Best Buy

I do enjoy this game but, (there's always a but) the FPS are killing me. I'm getting around 20fps for an average. This is no matter what detail settings I use. Otherwise a fine game. Also, I agree with the vehicle physics note. Although I would have told you otherwise prior to playing the game.

My rig:
AMD 3200
1gig Dual Channel PC 3200
Radeon 9800 Pro

Well, IMHO Joint Ops is freaking amazing, and I was betting it wouldn`t be. It FEELS like DF 2 on UBER:`ROIDS. I play in mostly 100/150, infact I only play in the huge servers. Before the patch, when I`d spawn into a new game there was some slow down. And then it would speed up awesome. Now when I go in, it is fast as soon as I spawn in.
As well, the fog effects seem way more enhanced now. Very nice. Underwater visuals seems way nicer too.
As for the controls of helis, emphesis is still on onfoot combat.. but I think the feel of flying and the sensation is pretty sweet. The J-Ops demo were pretty Road Warriorish and UTish. But the final is a DF fans wetdream. The only thing missing now is... my acog scope. ;p
Lastly, there are some fixes needing addressing such as 3D weapons sound positional localizing. Once this is done, whoah.

Must be an amazing experiance with 150 player spam fest and always look for a ride across the land. Also got to love the helicopter controls(newbie special). How about the massive amount of tank units! o nevermind just the striker.

Aint worth 49.99

aye, I still need to upgrade my 1.7ghz... but if I turn the detail way down low, I can get a good game going as well... BFV is like a very sad chump compared to this game...

i REALLY like the way you cant count on the "run and gun" bullshit type rambo tactics since there are like 50 other guys on your ass in seconds... play the 100+ servers to get the FULL experience...

vehicle physics, shmehicle physics... this game is pimp
