What do you mean by MAX 1.5? Mb or Gb?

500Mb to 1.5Gb, doing it the other way around (500Mb to 1.5Mb) is, um, bad news.

So this is what I did. *deep breath* I went on control pannel, I went to system, clicked the advanced tab, performance settings, advanced again, change virtual memory, picked custom, then where it sais Initial size (Mb) I put 500, below it was Maximum size (Mb) I put 1.5 there as you told me, and clicked set. This is what happend: Enter a numeric value for the maximum page file size. What did I do wrong? Oh! and you forgot the little ":smokin: " thing at the end of your last post.:lookaround:

I said 1.5Gb to make it quicker and easier to write, they want you to enter 1.5Gb the long way, 1500Mb ok?

So, min 500, max 1500.

I did what you said. But I don't understand how it helps. And what does "No Packet flow" and "Losing key packets" mean.

Ps: I D/L Dc final.

"No Packet flow" and "Losing key packets" mean.

That's usually related to the networking rather than comuter performance.

So you have downloaded CD:Final also, you realise that is even more demanding than standard BF and will probably run worse than standard BF? You will simply have to face the fact that your computer is simply not powerful enough to run BF properly.

Changing the swap file is only a little improvement. On computers with low memory Windows XP swaps uneeded data out to the hard drive into an area set aside called the Swap File, or Virtual Mem, the two terms are intechangeble in Windows XP. However the swap file is a poor substitute for real mem, and with a computer with so little real mem you have constant swapping on and off the HDD while the OS moves data to and from the hard drive.

Basically you need more mem (at least 512), better video (at least a 128Mb vid card in the FX5700, ATI 9600 range), and preferably a faster CPU, but your CPU should be just capable of running it.

There's really nothing else you can do with your current setup to run BF any better, time to upgrade.

Good idea mate, but, start saving $$$ for a machine that will run BF2 also.

Latest recommended is 1.5Gh, 1Gb Ram and 128Mb Vid card with Pixel Shader 1,4 support. (think GF FX or later model ATI, 9600 and upward series)
