  • Ultra-High Video Options

    There appears to be a way to manually configure your system to support video options that are higher than the in-game settings. If you try this, please post your system specs and the results you've seen.

    In \My Documents\Battlefield 2 Demo\Profiles\0001 (path and profile number may vary depend on installation and accounts)

    edit the file named video.con with notepad, change the settings to:

    VideoSettings.setTerrainQuality 4
    VideoSettings.setGeometryQuality 4
    VideoSettings.setLightingQuality 3
    VideoSettings.setDynamicLightingQuality 4
    VideoSettings.setDynamicShadowsQuality 4
    VideoSettings.setEffectsQuality 4
    VideoSettings.setTextureQuality 4
    VideoSettings.setTextureFilteringQuality 4
    VideoSettings.setResolution [email protected]
    VideoSettings.setAntialiasing Off
    VideoSettings.setViewDistanceScale 1
    VideoSettings.setVideoOptionScheme 3

        This game brings my overclocked - pipeline unlocked- vertexshader added 6800 to its knees if I turn the video up.
        eVGA 6800 128meg , 12/5 unlocked to 16/6 @ 330 / 800 MHz. Not sure if I can squeeze anymore to try 'super settings'.

              Putting video settings that high at 1024 rez is a waste, if you're going to try this at least go for 1280+. I have a 9800 Pro and have to play in all low quality but I play in 1680x1050 and the game looks twice better than it did at 1024 even without changing the video options.

              I'll be trying this when my new PC gets here Friday or Monday (Radeon X1900XTX 512mb 650mhz, Opteron 170 OC'd to 2.4ghz, 2gig dual channel ddr400 ram :))

                    Does this mean you get to kill us a whole lot quicker?

                      Nice one Kilrogg.

                      Here's what I'm Running now...

                      Intel Pentium Dual Core - 2.8GHz
                      2 GIG DDR400 Ram
                      NVidia GeForce 6800 - 256MB
                      17 Inch Flat Panel Crystal Liquid - 1024 x 768


                      You think changing my resolution up will improve things ???

                        It just means you look prettier while I kill you :)

                        17in monitors' native resolution is usually 1024x768 so I don't think changing the rez to higher than that will make that big of a difference. If your computer can handle it though sure try 1152 or 1280 or whatever the exact settings above 1024 are. The higher the rez the less jaggies you see. I run BF2 at low settings with AA off @ 1680x1050 and I can barely see the jaggies, I don't even need AA.

                          Do keep us posted. I'm curious how this'll turn out.
