  • Map load times.. How long does yours take?

    I seem to be last in the game all the time, as it takes me a long time to load the maps. I hear some guys are in the game on TS way before me, and know others who have slow map load times. I can't figure out why just yet.

    I have no disk write/read issues normally, and my setup is as below:

    Drive 1: 500GB WD Sata driver
    Partition 1 - OS
    Partition 2 - Data (including Steam apps folder)

    Drive 2:500GB WD Sata Drive
    1 Partition - Fraps files (And backups)

    4GB RAM (2 x 2GB DDR3 modules running at I think 1333MHz)

    Other details:

    Intel Q9550 (2.83Mhz Core 2 Quad)
    GPU: ATI Radeon HD 5850

    Writing this has proimpted me to check 1 thing: Is it because I'm running on higher graphics settings?

    Anyone else have any comments or speed issues? Do you run high graphics and have slow load times? Or Low/Medium graphics and quick load times?

    EDIT: Running on DX11
    (Thanks UnDead)

    Apparently the game takes a bit longer to load for DX11 vs. DX9. I know my load times are a bit longer than some people, and I was curious myself.

    I'm running a OCZ Agility 60GB SSD as my main Windows 7 install, then BC2 is installed on my Samsung F3 1TB, among with all my steam games. My load times still are around 20-30 seconds I believe.

      I run it in DX9 (personal preference, despite having a gtx 275) and my load times are generally very fast for map switching and when loading into the server intially.

        I run DX9 as well, but my load time is easily a good 30 seconds between maps, sometimes almost a minute when initially loading into the game the first time. People tell me to spawn in and I haven't even gotten to the kit screen let alone be able to spawn in.

        Oh, and I run the game on all low settings, so I really don't know what the problem is.

          You can thank AMD/ATI for your long load times. I am always the first to spawn.

            I feel like I'm always in last too (Intel i7 920, ATI 4870, 6 GB RAM, defraged and fast 1 TG WD HDD).

                  The GTX260/275/285 do not support DX11, only DX10. DX11 is a gimmick for the time being. I am running DX9 since it looks the same as DX10.

                  MY settings:

                  resolution 2560x1600
                  hbao off
                  vsync is off (causes tearing)
                  shadows low
                  effects medium (reduces flickering)
                  everything else is set to high

                  I get between 40 and 150 fps.

                  EDIT: I am running my Q9550 @ 4GHz. I would advise you to overclock your CPU as well. (-:

                    About 25 seconds:

                    285GTX
                    2.66ghz Core Duo
                    500GB SATA drive for the primary
                    2GB ram
                    Windows XP (and therefore DX9)

                    Settings are high for details, medium for effects

                        It appears that all ATI owners are getting slow load times.

                          I had thought my lengthy loads were due to my oh-so-slow DSL. Guess not. I've got ATI and it takes around a minute for each map load.

                              I love my graphics so I turned everything to max for the best appearance. If I turn everything to medium, I am usually the first person in.


                              Q720 i7 (1.7GHz, not being able to OC my laptop without it burning into a fiery heap of doom is annoying), GTX 260m, 4 GB RAM, DX9 (The difference between 9 and 10 is not worth the FPS cost.)
