If those of you who experience some choppy gameplay there is not substitute than an overall system upgarde. BUT, for the majority of those us who can't go out and buy a radeon 9700 pro, (homer simpson drool:p), heres a little tip. Whenever you enter a game and just after you spawn just stand there for about 5 seconds, then hit escape. After the menu loads and everything simply hit escape again and return to the game. For some reason this tends to add about 15 fps to my game, (fps command, in the console: console.showfps 1). Sorry if someone has already brought this to your attention.

Don't be ignorant people, IT DOES WORK. Maybe not for you but for me and others it can add up to 15 or 20 fps. So don't be an ignorant dumb****.

Since the 'hit escape' routine adds FPS I'm wondering just how solid the programming is for this game. For the 'hit esc' to work there must be some memory being cleared that wasn't 'cleaned up' prior to entering the game (but the game is expecting it to be free).

My problem is whenever I see the black/white Battlefield 1942 logo (between maps, disco'ing from a server, etc.) the game 'reverts' to windows for just long enough for my desktop to be reset to 800X600. However, when I exit the game it's back to my normal rez (1280X1024) but my icons are all scrunched up in the upper left corner.

I have a 128 meg TI4800 GEforce4 running the latest Nvidia drivers so I don;t think THAT's it. Just sloppy game/GFX programmming
