Just beware the links to the driver in that Article links to 21.11.1 not .2
didnt make any difference at 1440p, the game did crash though since installing these drivers.
wish I read that before installing
Thankfully didn't get any crashing so far..
FPS are fine - typically 100-120FPS. 1440P All ultra. occasionally a tad lower.
However the distant object Bluriness , pop-ins / low draw distance of certain objects and Texture changes at crazy short distances (imo) is doing my head in a bit.. I do remember a bit of this from Beta but seems way worse?
PNG Screenshots below -anyone replicate this?
Zoom in of the containers.. Can see why they are blury
Had some issues with Drivers crashing but new drivers might have fixed that.
This game smashes my AMD 3600 though, to the point it stutters at some things.
Game just doesnt feel smooth but that might just be my 3600 taking a beating. DrawFPS shows pretty much 90-120fps most of the time from my 3070ti but still feels laggy.
Unsure how some people are stupidly good already, slightly annoying.
Also had a few bugs where I cannot do damage to certain players for whatever reason. Found a camper and put a sniper shot to the back of his head as he wasnt moving. No damage or hit markers, pulled out the pistol and unloaded a clip into the back of his head, still nothing. He turned around and 3 tapped me with the DMR.
So far so good, overall feels like a "good" game.
Reminds me of codmw19 ground war.
I wish they kept the solider layout of bfv, these specialist feel like every other shooter on the market with specialists/operators...
Take downs also feels like a cheap rip off of the cod counter part.
Sniping is fun, bullet drop seems abit exaggerated.
Regular modes feel meh... feels like there are alot of bots running around.. i dare say it felt like 64 players with 64 bots....
Portal is fun, but for how long? (if they add metro i'll buy up cos im a dirty casual)
Also had that bug with other players not taking damage. Other players could do damage but I couldn't.
gtx1080 is running fine on medium LOL (75hz monitor)
After a few more games, im not fully satisfied especially with the core games.
I think DICE knew this and added portal to draw in the crowd...
My blurry eyed first impressions after spending an hour having to upgrade my windows to get it to run then playing it all night.
2042 itself is okay. It's just too far from how BF4 played for me. It's far less jank than the beta.
Orbital is the worst map in the game by far. The only competition will be El Alamein which has that "dust 1" problem where it's legendary but kinda crap when you actually compare it to new maps. I'm not entirely sure why they went that way instead of the better maps like Tobruk or Battleaxe.
I spent most of my time in 2042 in the gunner seat of the hovercraft. It's going to get a nerf I reckon, it can swallow a tank shell easy and because it's pretty fast most of the time a decent driver can smoke up and get away. The minigun is good but the grenade launcher is borderline OP, rescued from such status by it's limited ammo count, I was racking up 30+ kills with it. Tow missile is garbage. Also, it can climb up the side of skyscrapers. Neat.
Most of the maps still have too many air vehicles in my opinion.
The AA tank is awful. I don't know why it's gun is slow damn slow to aim. It's also as usual, incredibly bad against infantry. Getting the unlocks for this is going to be a pain.
At least Jets are practically useless at this point.
The expected flood of Korean Wallhaxors didn't happen because she's hard locked behind a high rank.
It needs a normal scoreboard, and proper stats.
Performance is just adequate. I wasn't playing at full ultra and I'm on a 38" ultrawide, getting 60 to 75 FPS depending on where it is. It could be a lot smoother and I hope Nvidia and the devs can optimise it more.
Origin is just godawful. It's inability to properly form parties is abysmal.
Combine the above with the lack of a server browser in 2042 and just playing with one mate was a fucking pain. Multiple occasions we got split up for no apparent reason and one of them took ages to try and get back in together.
The portal server browser is also pretty crap. For the love of god let me at least lock things to the Oceania region. Somehow, Counter Strike Source which was made nearly 20 years ago has a better functioning server browser.
Portal is an incredible piece of work that I wonder how the fuck someone convinced the money hungry executive pricks to actually make. Supposedly it was only made in just over a year. It should get even better. If we can ever host dedicated servers it could create communities that last 10+ years. The 1942 mode on the Battle of the Bulge map is closer to the original 1942 than anything EA have done since then. I think it might have been better if EA had split it off entirely, handed it to Ripple Effect for another year or so in development, added ded servers or at least permanent rentals, used the extra year to add more maps and it would have been carried to success by the increase to 128 players and the custom game rules. AND BRING BACK 6 MAN SQUADS.
TDM with 128 players is utter chaos in those tiny areas. The normal conquest (ie, the Portal maps) size with 128 is also chaos, but not quite as mental.
The gunplay is good, I think the TTK is a touch too low, I had quite a few instances where I'd blast a guy with 4 bursts while he was running and get him with at least something, but not kill. Hopefully I feel better with the gun when I find the groove gun (like my AEK in BF4 or the SCAR-H in BF3) and the right attachments.
I'm pretty sure EA ensured that the Portal global game limit was too low, and the pre-made lists weren't that good so that people would actually play 2042. Unless I missed it there was no very simple "128 players with every map and default settings" for 1942, BF3 or BC2. Which anyone with a brain would have made.
Making stuff in Portal is quite easy. After playing around with it I've got the aforementioned "128 player every map, basic settings" for 1942, BC2 and BF3 ready to go.
Ah k maybe it's had fixes since all the content creators had their play.
Wonder if they will make any significant changes before early-access beta testing is over..
Drivers are still crashing, DirectX12 error
Happens every 2-3 games now.
Really sick of joining games with less than 250 tickets left, had 6 in a row and feels like whenever I spawn, there is a tank ready to destroy me.
Maybe I am getting too old for this shit. BF5 was so smooth and polished compared to this.
Mate and I had a crack at Hazard Zone. Don’t know why it’s getting so much flak; I loved it. Maybe if you’re solo it’s a bit crap, but with a mate, or 3, it would be great fun. I can see it building into a fun game mode. The Doc was playing it earlier today and loving it.
Performance is still impressive with the PS5. Graphics look great, seems to be running at 4K from the naked eye and frame rates have been rock solid throughout all out war, portal and hazard zone. I suck with a controller, and they don’t support keyboard and mouse unfortunately. So can’t wait for my motherboard to come back from gigabyte (been 20 days now) and ditch the controller haha
So I read that there's no scoreboard? That's probably a good thing so I can't see how terrible I am.
OK I found my blurry, making me sick, doing my head in issues
Seems I failed to turn chromatic aberration off, confusing it for something else stupidly... Can't believe this is even a thing , but it's fking off the chart here. So if anyone has stupidly skipped over this setting.. turn it off .
Also motion blur.. I know most people turn it off anyway but I normally find default levels tolerable, not here, it's again OFF THE CHART, and blurs everything NOT actually moving across the screen. In other words when moving directly towards an object, it will blur. which is why I didn't think this would be the cause initially, and looked over it. wtf DICE
Seems there's still a lot of short distance pop ins, and questionable low texture quality things going on I'm guess are to try and up performance on large maps that were exasperating it for me, but not as bad now. These things still do IMO make the game go from looking amazing one minute, to pretty bland , washed out and ordinary quite quickly, depending on map and scenery. which is disappointing
probably to hide all the bots
i also turned off all those effects
I never had any issues with BF5, mind you I picked it up about 3 days after initial release.
Absolutely bf5 was miles ahead of this quality wise.
Also no voice chat.. Even bf3 had that.
This is early access for sure.
I imagine without covid we would have a much better experience.
Give it time.
i guess so
at least portal bc2 and bf3 is kinda fun, hitting the feels.
Need the 2009 squad back
Trying to host my portal server and it's spinning it up god knows where because I'm getting 170 ping.
edit - Drop to 64 players total and it hosts in Australia. So presumably they've got limits on how many local 128 player servers there are.
Has the carl gustav made a return in the BC2 portal? That thing was the best tears extractor ever.
