Well that was dipshit of me. I didn't limit my upload, so my ACKs were getting flooded out. Dropped my upload limit to 5kbps below maximum and I'm up to 252kbps. W00t

BF2 Tip: You can duck in the top vehicle turrets and behind emplacement guns now.

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.

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...

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.
