The game comes out 14th. We can survvive until then. I had the same problems as many of you guys. I start playing MP demo, and after 10-20 seconds it crashes to my desktop when i'm lucky, otherwise it just restarts my computer.....and no error message appears. But once the REAL shit is out, our pain will be gone, and we can finally play the greatest game of all. So **** the demos, cause 50 percent of the time they just won't work. Just preorder and forget about the demos, and get ready to blow up some tanks.
Yeah, unfortunately the retail game runs worse than the demo so if you're hoping all your problems will go away when you buy the retail version, I urge caution. You might just have the same problems.
Demos are usually not optimized, and usually retails fixes most of what demos has problems with. If this retail copy of BF1942 is just as bad as the demo was, oh boy- that won't be a good sign until patches are released (to hopefully address problems).
I'm not trying to rant. I just started playing the demo yesterday and I'm already complaining about sound quality (gun sounds, explosions which are almost as bad as a cheap Half-Life mod), and some other sound effects like the boat engine (I get some static like a grammaphone from the 1930s). I'm hoping the retail doesn't have the same sound effects, and YES I have hardware accel, 32 channels and highest possible detail in the sounds settings- I'm using a SBLive!. If someone can provide me a fix or certain setting that will give better sound quality, I'd appreciate it.
What I'd like to know hs what differences will the retail have from the demo (other than more maps, singleplayer, etc.), I plan on buying the copy tonight (it'll be on shelves in Future Shop).
It's Friday the 13th, nyahaha! der Fuhrer
i just got the retail version.............it sucks even more than the demo. I mean the game itself is good, but it still crashes. I have tried everything. I have read countless threads and replies, but nothing helped.
How do i contact ea or dice? cause i need to have a word with them..................
