I've been playing this game for months now, and was using 1.31 with NO LAG whatsoever. I upgraded to 1.4 and now I get lag or choppiness all over the place. My system is:
1.6MHz 512MB RAM Win XP GeForce2 64MB cable modem
My ping to the various servers is usually 30-50. As I said, I've never had any lag until going to 1.4. When I upgraded, I immediately noticed it, especially when flying. I know my video card is old, so I upgraded to an ATI Radeon 9500 Pro. The problem still remains. I have the sound configured as hardware accelerated. I noticed that if I drop it down, the problems get a little worse, not better. I've tried reducing some of the video and audio options as well. Nothing helps. Anyone have any ideas or suggestions??
1.4 vanilla BF? or 1.4 dc?
IF 1.4 dc then your not alone.
I have DC 0.38 and EOD 12% installed, but 99% of the time I am just playing plain BF42 and not the mods. Can just having them installed mess up the performance even when I'm not playing those mods? My next thing to try is to uninstall the shole shebang and re-install BF and then the 1.4 patch and seeing if just having those shows any problems.
i should'nt think that just having the mods installed will mess things up, but stranger things have happened, and a reinstall is always a good thing. (defrag b4 installing maybe also)
my bf stopped working after i installed 1.4, is there a known way to fix that? i had 1.31 installed already but now when i start the game, the logo appears then disappears on my desktop and nothing more... i tried reinstalling it and it would work fine until i'd install any of the patches again, even 1.31. thanks for any help
