Have you guys been informed of the bugs in the BF2 1.4 patch? Well, it's worse than 1.3 was and it's not just me that's complaining, although I think the complaints are coming in slowly, servers are having trouble all over... the servers are still crashing, the clients are crashing more often and the amount of lag has increased to the point that it's almost unplayable by many (and I should add, completely transparent to others).
Just an FYI, in case you haven't been keeping up with the BF2 forums.
At any rate, until FH2 comes out or they fix BF2, I am done with it and going back to playing FH.

Hmm, well I for one welcome you back to the better game/mod? :D
Still quite anoying they keep screwing up though... Me, well I have only played the BF2 demo just to see the rendering capabilities of the engine, since I'm not really into arcade/modern combat... Perhaps the server operators should boycot this new patch. It should need ALL servers to do this and is probably an impossible feat to coordinate, so probably not gonnah happen :uhm:
Devs read Bff2 modding forums and surely many others. I think they already know from there if not from their own experience.
I wouldn't have post, except, this is sorta "bleeding edge" stuff that's just getting off the ground.... there's still a relatively harsh debate back and forth about who is to blame. There's lots of finger pointing toward Punkbuster and the individual computers. While punkbuster *could* be to blame (I haven't checked non-punkbuster enabled servers yet) it could also be the ranking system, gamespy, etc. I plan to check out punkbuster this evening. I cannot check gamespy, unless of course I can find a server out there that doesn't allow reporting to gamespy, which will of course be rather hard to find... either I'll need inside info on a server that doesn't report to gamespy or rely on All Seeing Eye... last I heard, once Yahoo! took ASE over, it's crap as well.... so.... I'll do what I can and report back. Even if I find one or two non-gamespy-enabled servers, that's not enough to give a valid reply about... I would think if a person has trouble on say 15 of 30 "good ping" servers, either punkbuster or not, that should give a pretty good indication of there being a real problem..... chances of finding 30 non-punkbuster servers is relatively thin.
Honestly, I don't know what you're talking about. I still get periodic connection problems, but only in long games, and I think it has to do with my own end through my provider. 1.4 fixed every single problem I had except the one with the sound card, but that problem is due to the fact that Sound Blaster sucks and the driver updater refuses to accept that I have an SB installed.
1.4 is good for me.
like i said, no everyone is getting the problems. it may only be related to "X" and you and maybe lots of people you know, don't have "X". i have "X" and several of my friends have "X" because they're having the same problem.
