All looking good for me too. Zero crashes since the patch tonight. Can’t say that of any other day I’ve played the game.

hmmm not sure

2 lockups after the patch, which was over 300mb
i think i will build a new Windows 7 workstation and give it a go there.
i did do a crsch dump of BFBC, i will go through the crash dump file to see what caused it. My best guess would be the Visual C++ frame work.
I will keep you posted

Random Glitch

I get two blasts of the horn now. It’s great. You know the round is over, and you can still concentrate.

Nothing worse than the round suddenly ending. I’m now glad they kept it.

I think they nerfed the 2m range of the knife. You have to actually be able to reach them to stab them now. MUCH more reasonable.

Finaly telstra go it right

Telstra was promising me faster internet but gave me 1 bit/s today they fixed 500kb/s which is better than my orignal 120kb/s

Mine have stopped

I’m running DirectX ‘highest you can get on XP’, have an nVidea 9600 ‘BlackPearl’. 4GB RAM, and a dual core 2.6(or is it 3.1, I forget)GHz processor.

I haven’t got a crash to desktop so far. I get lots of disconnects though.

Sounds like overall (based on

Sounds like overall (based on the very limited sample we’ve got here) the patch has

- Made it better for DirectX9 users – Worse for DirectX10/11 (do we have anyone using Direct X 11?)

I agree

Much better now…
Im actually killing more people now too….
and there is no more arsy stab stabs from 50mtrs away anymore.

its no longer the “easy” option! you’ve actually gotta be 100% on the kill…. other wise the person can dodge it or step back and cap you!
MUCH better!

8 hrs

last night and only one crash.

good, good, GOOD!
