Why does bombing the Reich run so poorly? I have a good graphic card, so it isn’t me. Is it?
Performance in Battlefield 1942 isn't as dependant on graphics card (unless it's realy old one, but I assume you're not in possesion of such) as it is on RAM and cpu or in some cases sound card. Since Bombing the Reich is not a very massive, nor detailed map I doubt it'd be RAM. I guess that entire plane combat and sounds it creates can cause lag issues. Can you tell us more about your hardware? Anyway, I remeber that sound had a great impact on performance of my older pc in bf42, so try compleately turning it off in the settings, so that it's not being processed at all, and see how it plays. If it'll be visibly better, try lowering some sound quality settings.
OK Along these lines I have a question of my own... Why do th 109's handle so differently in this map? You can take off like a rocket ship.
Maybe they 109's are supposed to represent a later model...without actually making a new model.

put all sound details on low.

Its because its the 109G which is much better than the 109E. The 109G is only beaten by the Yak 9 and the P51 in terms of performance. In short the 109G is much better than the Hurricane and spitfire on that map. I've also flown a 109K armed with 3 30mm cannons and 2 MG's and that was a beast that flew almost aswell as a P51 but packed a serious punch.
Trick on that map as allied is to take a spitfire and do some zoom and boom and don't get caught in the n00b turn wars which you can't win.
It doesn't lag for me. Gameplay wise it's terrible. Last tiem I checked the map was "Boming the Reich" not "Long Range British Airbase Raping".
The map plays terribly because of the choice of planes, Spit and Hurri I's vs 109g's and Fw-190's, who thought that was a good idea? The map is crying for a Spit V.
Turned down all the sound, reduced total players oto only 32, still lags...I'm i'm not even online yet! As soon as I see, say...the Brit main bomber, the thing lags...And as soon as I reach the German Coast line (i.e. the other side of the stream representing the ocean), the game lags... I agree with the base raping...It has to do with a bit of map size, map organisation, plane postioning, and yer, defintely choice of planes
Its the cruddy bofurs! If that map had some better AAA they wouldnt be raping so much. A few half tracks with dual .50s or quad .50s would seriously curtail that. Still its rare that the germans win that map & I have yet to play a BoB map that the alies win without raping the german main & at least they have nice AA guns to stop that.
Mabey a conflict between your sticks of RAM if they are different?
