DC .7 release is going to be mostly optimization!!!!

Yay! This thread will be needless, and we'll all be gladder for it!

I think they will be putting in new stuff, just not as much as usual thanks to the optimization.

I am a HUGE DC fan, and believe me I feel your pain. I cant play Urban Siege, its impossible for me, its THAT bad, and I have something like 31 gigs of free space. (im stingy with my memory, sue me :D)

Hi, after reading a lot of these posts and numerous others on various other forums and personal experience, I realize that the sound card makes a HUGE difference on BF. For instance, I had a Sager laptop (p4 2.4b, 512mb pc2100, mobility radeon 9000 pro 128mb,...) and with the onboard sound I was getting terrible lag no matter what the settings. So after getting the advice of the forum members on I bought a Creative Extigy. I was afraid the USB connection would kill the perforance of my games, but it didn't. It helped tremendously! BF has a lot of audio effects that are processed. If you get a powerful sound card then it takes the load off the processor. Desert Combat is where I noticed the biggest difference of NO LAG. Now I have a desktop system (p4 2.4c, 512mb pc3200 dual channel, Radeon 9800 pro, Audigy 2) and that rocks. My dsl connection gives me pings at best of 11ms, so I know that was not the cause of the lag. BF is very sensitive to audio cards and I think about the only decent onboard sound processor is the nForce2 chipset. Try a new audio card, it could be what is causing all of your systems to lag!
