  • Long Loads on join / Between Maps

    Hey guys,

    I played most of the day Saturday with no issues, but I just got on today (Monday) and I'm experiencing some severely long black screens, long screens with the loading image, long delays between maps, etc. It's 2-3 minutes long. I'm missing like the first 2-3 minutes of each map because I can't load in fast enough. I have a top of the line PC.

    16 GB Ram, Quad Core i2700k, 570 GTX, etc etc.

    I updated punkbuster, tried a different browser, restarted, closed origin and reopened, etc. None seemed to improve anything.

    I also have several other weird bugs like no jeep audio, etc.

    Could it be the server updates? I don't know what to do.

    Sounds like a disk drive problem, so run checkdisc.

    Or get an SSD.

    What antivirus/firewall are you running?

      Yeah my 1TB drive failed. I have an SSD that I had to reinstall BF3 on, didn't want to put games on it as it uses up most of the space, but oh well.

        Were you using the SSD as a boot drive and then the 1TB as the data drive? That's what I do....

        When did you find out the drive failed? after you posted this? is it still happening?

          A bunch of people over on Reddit are saying that this helped them.

          Nvidia Cards.

          Open up Nvidia Control Panel
          Click on Manage 3D Settings
          Click on Program Settings
          Select Battlefield 3 in the drop down box (If it's not there click add and find bf3.exe located C:\Program Files (x86)\Origin Games\Battlefield 3)
          Find Threaded optimization
          Turn On
          Click Apply

          You should now have fast load times when changing maps :)

          AMD/ATI Cards

          Download ATT http://downloads.guru3d.com/download...ad.php?det=733
          Install
          Right click on the icon in the bottom right corner of your screen
          Click on Tweaks
          Click on Advanced Tweaks
          In the drop down box select Multi Threaded Support
          Change to 2 or 4 (Depending on how many cores you have on your CPU)
          Make sure the radio box above is ticked
          Click apply

          This should fix it for you :)

              There was an update couple days ago and oddly enough it was causing crashes/etc... could be part of it.

                Not happening anymore after reinstalling BF3 on the SSD itself. And yes I was using the setup you have Glyc.
