It's reassuring to know I'm not the only one. My 2 year old computer meets the recommended requirements but BF3 is a resource hog

45-55 FPS @ 1920x1200 Multiplayer (Solid 60 in SP)
Everything on High
Textures on Ultra
16xAF
HBAO On
Motion Blur On
MSAA off
AA Post Processing : High

Old PC with a few bolt ons and overclocks as listed.

Intel Q6600 @ 3.0Ghz
AMD 5850 @ 820/1200
4GB RAM
OCZ Vertex 2 SSD

Driver version : 11.10v3preview

I had to do quite a bit of tweaking, was much much worst yesterday. My saving grace was the great OC on my vcard and the high performance SSD. I never dip below 45 FPS in MP and never below 58 in SP. Rock Solid.

I have to log off my pc account and re-login, suffer through startup, and hope that the server I was on isn't full (it always is).

I've seen a ton of people in the EA forums complaining about the same thing happening to them on all sorts of systems.

I've gotten this on my PS3 once or twice, and I've also had it freeze in the loading screen with some mad flickering. Requires a complete power cycle of the PS3 to fix it.

Few other issues:
I wish I could see the ping for me and others on the scoreboard

I wish the loading inbetween games was like BC2 where it would display your unlocks/achievements WHILE it was loading the next game. I hate that it sits there for 30 some seconds showing you this, THEN decides to load into the next server. The fact you can't quit during all of this is even more frustrating.


Otherwise the game is an absolute blast to play. Playing Rush on that Damavandad whatever map is sick, especially the base jump.

You definitely need more RAM.... for pretty much everything, really would be a good idea

I came here to see the discussion about bf3 gameplay. I'm disappointed to read its all about problems with my computer. Makes me happy i switched to xbox 360 long ago.

Anyway, I played for 3 hours last night. Awesome game. Sound effects are unreal. The mission with the plane was great. The whole start of the mission with the flight check and when you put on your helmet and the sound all muffles. Great detail!

I play on PS3, my computer comment was a joke. Gameplay is pretty solid, much better than the beta. Helicopters are much harder to fly, even with the button/stick layout that is almost identical to the set-up I ran in BC2 I'm having a really hard time flying. I guess it's a good thing though, it will cut down on chopper whoring and force more people to play on the ground.

I thought they changed it so you could change your class completely or change aspects of your class during the countdown before a round starts. If they did, I can't seem to figure it out on PS3.

I thought the carrier was sinking at first because the floor looks like water.
