I have 512 and my games run smoothly even with 50 players online. Though to counter this (relatively) low memory problem I got a GeforceFX 5700 Ultra which provides smooth framerates all the time. I am looking into buying more RAM though.

If you have an ATI card, get the latest drivers 4.8 Catalysts.

Also, www.tweaktown.com has a good section on tweaking both Windows 2000 and Bf1942 for preformance gains and they will yield enough preformance to be worth your time.

The team said they were replacing several laggy models and other such things, so we can only wait and see how much better it runs. I expect most of the optimization to be in the maps. Especially Prokhorovka and other object-intensive maps.

My connections are 2mbit so that is not the problem. It may be the soundcard. Will check it again after i downloaded FH (uninstalled because of lagginess). It could be that my comp hadent been adware,spyware checked in a year and when I checked with ad-aware (great program) I had like 259 adware, spyware on my pc (its true). Will download and test. I cannot upgrade my pc because its being rent and my father works in the law business so he wont let me upgrade it because its illegal to do so or something... He is a pain in the a**

I have a shitty old computer with Athlon 1400...with a Geforce 2 card, FH lagged on some maps. Not all though. Upgraded to ATI Radeon 9600DX with new drivers. Things got drastically worse. A lot worse. Did some research and noticed that I had changed my sound settings. Decreased them and got roughly the same performance I used to get with that old video card of mine. Figured that my even more ancient SB PCI128 sound card was the weak point. Upgraded to a really new SB card (forgot its precise name). WHOOAA..got a lot better performance. Definetly better than what I ever had before. So soundcard may make a huge difference. As does memory. However, now my weakest point is the motherboard with does not support AGP8X. So I don't get the full benefit of my video card as I am only able to run it on AGP4X. So...FH performance is a complicated thing. Overreaching in any single area, whether its the motherboard, CPU, memory, vidcard or soundcard, is not going to help. My situation would, for example, not be improved much with an even better vid card as my motherboard is getting old. LaDigue (kustjägare)

Quit surfing on porn sites or, probably more realistically, set your IE security settings to maximum when doing that. That way you won't get any ad-ware anymore :) LaDigue (kustjägare)

I can't even use 1024x768 with medium settings on some maps, but need to go to 800x600 instead. I'm getting a better external soundcard soon too, with that I'll also be able to get a digital audio signal to my 5.1 Dolby Digital amp, and hopefully that way get surround sound for my games too, from proper loudspeakers - does anyone know this will actually work? It should, but one can never be certain...

Anyway, I really hope the new soundcard will increase performance, even though it's a 43? Terratec Aureon 5.1 Fun... but still should be better than my SB128 PCI.

Could use more and faster memory too, but just ain't got the cash... :(

I downloaded it again works a little bit better with the sound on low. Some slow downs in city maps and at places with many tanks or in tank battles. But Iam of course waiting to see the better prestanda in 0.65
