Ive been playing BF for about 6 months now and havent got any bigger problems to solve through that time, but now i defenetly have!! Ever since ive installed the 1.4 patch, the DC .38 mod and installed the new nvidia detonator 40 drivers the game is laggy as hell and sometimes impossible to play. Especially DC.38, is even worse. So what is this?? My ping is good always between 20-50 so that isnt the problem, but im ripping my hair and i almost cant play online without major lag anymore!!! Is it the 1.4 patch causing the problems? or the DC .38?? or the drivers???? ive reinstalled the old drivers but its not helping me!! even though i have 256 ram its usually no problem, so it cant be that! i know most of the tricks to make the game run easier but and im using them!! Gaaaaaaaah!!! Please help!! whats the problem???

XP, Intel P4 2.4Mhz Geforce 440Mx 256ram

DC .38 introduced a number of lag issues. I myself get horrible lag on some maps, when in heavy combat, and I have an excellent system.

its a smaller problem on the regular bf42, but u can notice the difference! its laggier overall and that DC .38 is almost unplayable!! that was NOT a problem before! did a check in other bf forums and i see threads with the same problem with both 1.4 patch and DC .38! seems to be a problem with that!! have any of you noticed some decrease in some level with 1.4 patch or DC .38??? think im gonna get some more RAM for my PC to chew on!!

I had the same problem with 1.4 and DC.38. Choppy FPS and bad lag. I just finally decided to uninstall DC. Now BF runs fine.
