So, how does it play for you!

Give us your system specs, tell us how good you have it running or how poorly things run, swap ideas and make your Battlefield a battlefield, not a lag-a-field! :D

Good vehicles? bad heicles? whats the silly thing in the game, whats the best thing in the game so far?

I'm using a 1600XP processor with 768MB DDR memory on XP pro and it runs pretty good.

Like any multiplayer game, I get a little lag on some slower servers but for the most part I am very satisfied with it.

I've set aside some time tonight to play, so hopefully I'll get to see the rest of the maps. Right now I've only seen about 5. Damn job cutting into my gaming time! :uhoh:

I think people need to not impersonate other people on ICQ and try to pilfer my CD key so they can play their pirated copy. That's what I think.

My problem with the game is not so much the performance issue, but gameplay issues.

1. Infantry is totally ineffective, the weapons accuracy and power is a joke. This is the biggest problem with the game at this point.

2. You should not be able to bring down aircraft with small arms fire so easily.

3. The artillery power of the tanks needs to be increased. It should not take 3 or 4 cannon shots to kill infantry.

this game has great potential, it just needs some tweaking to become a great game.

Not my PC but:

Celeron 533 256M RAM GeForce2 MX400 SoundBlaster Live!

Single player is fairly ok, a tad choppy when playing infantry but when in vehciles- game play is very smooth. Same in multiplayer, choppy and awful infantry gameplay, it seems to be all about MP and vehicles. I go on servers that pings 60-100, and no matter what it seems to lag all the time, just about everyone on the same servers complains as well. I played last night on a really good server, very little lag but very large maps and there were 12 of us.

I also have my Duron 900, 512M PC133 RAM, GeForce4 MX420 (*got it free) and played the demo on it a little- but that PC is put away for now :(

Runs great AFTER it finaly loads for one... And I have to spin in a circle when I get in, it seems that it has to refresh or load the textures as they apear on my screen the first time.

Some Bugs. I think the reason you guys are laggin online is cause the dedicated server is lacking the horses to run the server, or its running other stuff to... In the read-me, for a 32 player, they suggest a 2Ghz, and a T1... AND THEY SAY NOT TO BE BACKGROUNDING ANY OTHER PROGRAMS SUCH AS WEB SERVING. So, take your pick. That and bad netcode.

System:

AMD Athlon 1333 Mhz GeForce 4 4200 64 mb 640 Mb RAM Cable connection

No problems with the game. It runs fine in high detail, of course due to the GF4, and most servers I play on have good pings. Of course there are always bad servers etc so takes some searching to create a nice list of favorite servers I usually play on.

About what Fragumon said:

1. Infantry is totally ineffective, the weapons accuracy and power is a joke. This is the biggest problem with the game at this point. A: I agree withy ou here, the small arms should be made more powerful.

2. You should not be able to bring down aircraft with small arms fire so easily. A: Actually the amount of fire you need to throw at an airplane to down it is quite realistic. You can down an aircraft very easily by hitting its engine, again which is quite realistic. Still BF1942 never claimed to be realistic. Its a sim/arcade-mix thats deadly addictive. :D

3. The artillery power of the tanks needs to be increased. It should not take 3 or 4 cannon shots to kill infantry. A: Ive never had this problem. Ocassionally an enemy soldier may live where he should have died because of an explosion but those moments are rare.

I think that battlefield is a great game but there needs to be some fixes as well. First off one problem I encountered is with the sniper rifle which does not seem powerful at all. It also takes about 2-3 times before you can actually take down an enemy with the sniper rifle. One of the major problems I encountered was that there was trememndous lag in a lot of the servers. I have DSL and I admit that some of the times it can be alright but most and pretty much frequently there is tons of lag in all the servers. Another point I want to make is that it seems that shooting an enemy is very complicated, now I dont know if that is the case for everyone, but with me it seems like the gun to body or bullet to body contact is terrible. It is hard to kill and enemy with ANY gun! I think that Medal of Honor does a great job in all small arms and infantry combat. What would have been real awesome is if Medal of Honor had a patch or an update that would allow you to go in vehicles and move them. That would have been cool! But otherwise Battlefield is a great game, I just think that there are a few things that need fixing thats all.
