    Now that I am a couple of beers into my Friday night, it is taking a fair bit of effort to NOT buy this game. Looking at the BC2 footage is getting me hard as trigonometry...

    They fixed some bugs but UI still but meh and missing tonnes of things from previous BF games. Itl get better over time. It's just essentially early access.

    Unless something changes you are shit outta luck.. 3090s hitting as low as 50fps at 1440 even with DLSS (which seems to do nothing)

    The smaller portal maps and that tarkov fail mode are 100+ fps though.

    It seems purely optimisation/engine issue as even turning game to low on a 3090 on the 128 all out war can't break 100fps.. A joke.

    So far there are only 2 maps supported for BC2 (Rush) as far as I can tell. Spent more time in the menu then in-game.. although it was just released so maybe it'll pick up more servers with actual players

    to link gamepass and eaplay
    Install Xbox App if not already install (for some reason in search it doesn't come up) and EA app beta
    Sign in to the apps with appropriate accounts
    Search for EA play or similar, then click on view ea play games
    click bf2042
    click install with game pass
    then the link thing will appear in the back ground, link game pass and ea play
    restart ea app
    install bf2042

    Better than the beta stability wise but still missing a bunch of good stuff. Portal is staggeringly good though.

    I'm on a 3090 with everything maxed out at 1600p and don't seem to be having framerate issues. On a few month old nVidia driver.

    Upgrade done and I'm in.

    Protip for Nvidia users, go into the game specific 3d settings in the control panel and put Sharpening up to 0.50 (turn the film grain setting to 0). It makes things so crisp.

    edit - 0.50 might be a bit high. I'm dropping it down a bit.

    I don't have geforce experience which I assume that's the key for.

    Portal is really good, the server browser needs major work. Dedicated servers would be so much better. I tried hosting a simple BF3 with 128 players server and no-one joined.

    Reminder for all:

    If you have any fps issues then try disabling overlays, open console in game (~), and type "PerfOverlay.DrawFps 1"

    Enjoy inbuilt FPS monitors without shit overlays.
