  • is your rig good enough?

    once and for all: (correct me if this wrong)

    step 1: identify your system

    OS
    Windows XP only (Win 2000 and WinME not supported)

    internet connection: (only for multiplayer)
    Broadband Internet connection(dial-up will not work)

    Processor

    step 2: do the math

    if you have a low processor and a mid ram and low video card: low+mid+low= low settings

    low+low+high:low
    low+mid+[high,insane]:mid-low
    mid+mid+low: mid-low settings
    mid+mid+mid: mid settings
    high+mid+mid: mid settings
    high+high+mid: mid-high settings
    high+high+high: high settings
    insane+high+high: high settings
    insane+insane+insane: give me your computer

    if you have something lower than everything posted above forget about this game and throw your piece of sh1t in the garbage

    step 3 don't post anymore topics asking hardware related stuff



    Hope this will help some people........

            High+high+insane = ~60 fps on 1024x768 w/ everything on high. Is that what I should be getting?

            Anyway, it's good enough for me.

              Woo! thanks for letting me know just how badly my PC won't run this game :)
              Good to know though, as I was looking for these statistics earlier and couldn't find them.

                The best "Free" way to see if your machine can even run BF2 is to download the demo and try it out.

                      OS: Windows XP w/ SP2
                      Connection: COX HSI Broadband
                      CPU: Intel P4 3.0
                      Memory: 2GB PC3200
                      Video: 6600 GT

                      I run in 1024x768 with "medium" settings and no AA. I tried running in higher settings but I found that in various points in the map I would start getting choppy and have a difficult time controlling my player. I prefer to have my visibility set to 100 and have lower overall settings than drop it to 80 and push my settings up to high.

                      I have not yet tried any of the tweaks posted for improving performance. Has anyone here tried them and have any results to report?

                        I have not tried this, though.

                          Demo ran fine for the first week on my system, but suddenly in the past 2 days it's been giving me a headache. It now randomly blackscreens/temporarily freezes/shuts down my video card if I don't switch my desktop to 800x600 and then play at the same resolution. Before I just had my desktop at 1024x768, and played at the same. All medium settings, since those were default and I saw no reason to go higher.

                            I will point out that a friend of mine has a top of the line PC that can't run at insane settings because of the demo itself and minor issues that will (hopefully) be fixed in the retail release.

                              I am highly suspicious of the OS requirement as apparently the demo works perfectly fine on my Win2K Pro with SP4. It did however, tell me right after the installation that the build has only been tested on WinXP. It seems that DICE thinks not been tested is equal to not working. I will seriously rage if I find out for some strange reasons the retail doesn't let you install the game on Win2K.
