I reported a repeatable crash on the 360 the other day. Im not 100% on the circumstances, but it seems like if you are crouched and under suppression as the Support kit, and try to pull out C4, it will hard-lock the client. The lock will occur just as the "drawing" animation for pulling out the C4 completes.

I managed to get it to happen 3 times, but Im not completely sure of the circumstances.

Help from the youngsters, again....

I have just got up to speed on Steam (Thanks to ARFCOM's yutes). Now I downloaded Origin and the BF3 Beta. When I tried to start it up, it looks like there wasn't a single player mode choice. Is that correct?

Thanks from an old guy...


ETA: I also get a message I need to download a plug in.

Download and install the latest Browser Plugin to play the game.


What is Origin? Is it like Steam? Is the BF3 Beta only playable through Origin?

Beta is multiplayer only. Origin is EA's version of steam. The browser plugin you need to download is for Battlefield 3, which uses a strange web interface for server browsing.

Yeah, this thing definately needs some work. I think I've been killed more by the holes in the level geometry around the first objective than by enemy fire at this point.

Also, the weird bouncing effect when you get behind some of the cover is a pain in the ass. Makes your reticle bloom like mad.

Once your in the tunnels though, its shotgun homicide time. I've also seen some pretty skilled use of suppression there as well.

You can only edit key functions in game once you have spawned in. Everyone should update all graphics and sound drivers before playing. And use the 285.xx beta drivers if you have Nvidia.

It keeps crashing on me after just a few minutes.

Otherwise it's great.


ETA:It's also nearly impossible to find a server with a free slot.

ETA2:Finally got to play a few rounds without any crashes or being kicked from the server. It's glitchy as can be.

I like it so far other than the bugs, but it is a BETA. I have fun with it. I just wish the BETA was hardcore!!! I really like that fact that you can deploy a bi-pod and make your m249 a mounted gun.. thats pretty cool.

Got it for 360. Took me about ten minutes to get in a game and it wasn't bad. Definately a couple bugs to be worked out but I think I like it.

I think it blows compared to Bad Company 2

they took a perfectly good game and said, "how can we make the next one more like COD and less like BF''

I even heard all the middle schoolers that COD tends to attract on there

I am disappointed.

If they would have taken the same engine of B2 and added new single player, multiplayer maps, guns, vehicls, and improved the graphics it would have been perfect. It's like they wiped the board and started from scratch

Edit: I quoted you bc I just played about an hour on PS3.

Good luck. I couldn't get anything left of the right shift key to bind. Oh, and you have about 35 secs to try and accomplish it before you get killed.

I'm going to wait until until the full release and read reviews. Life's too short to fight this shit, and I understand the whole purpose of the beta is to test shit, I just don't have the motivation.

It's Caspian Border, its in the locked servers. Hopefully dice will release it in the next few days for the masses. This map is what battlefiled is in essence. Not that corridor shooter Metro. And cheer up, I know you're an old guy . The game does take a little getting used to, even for me, and I'm experienced.

I'm used to just the single player mode. I did play Desert Combat online and belonged to a group there (A few years ago).. I just got started on Steam and I've gotten used to that. I'll probably buy through Steam when it's available. Origin is a little different, but I'll keep plugging away at it. Thanks for the encouragement.

I'm for it. Everyone and there mother just sits in bushes and snipe the whole goddamn round, contributing nothing to the team. With everyone sniping objectives aren't being taken. I still think they should just limit snipers to 2 per team.

Sniper scopes have horrible amounts of glint from the sun, showing you where they are.

As a dc vet myself you'll enjoy the game a lot more and die a lot less quickly when you play the conquest maps. Vehicles make the game 100x better.
