Jam if you have a firewall try disabling it as a test. I know the one integrated into my mobo threw a fit the first time I tried to take the game online and locked my box up.


thanks man I was playing with no problems. I dont know why I never tried that earlier. Been playing for an hour just to see how it was running and it was smooth .


The manual says to close out everything when you play. Firewalls, Instant messengers,and anything else you might have running in the background. Kind of harsh, but I guess it needs the whole comp to itself to run smoothly.


double duh I should have read the manual myself and thought of that solution.Thanks also

at least I am not the only one with this problem. Though from the sound of it, I may have to throw down a good wad of cash and get a DVD burner instead of a regular drive because of all the problems DVD games have with regular DVD rom drives ( I read Brothers in arms was having all types of problems with DVD-rom drives as well, and it was a game I was wanting to pick up soon). Kind of sucks because I already spent 60 on a memory upgrade (got a 30 dollar rebate, but it takes 2 months to arrive)

going to try the game at my friends and then decide what to do.

I got it today. I have it running, but its looking AND chugging like ass (much worse than the demo), so I'll try to have it running decent by the end of the weekend so I can meet up with you guys next week.

I've got to hop into a game with the Gulf of Oman map to compare it with the demo, but it looks about the same to me and running similarly. Though it does sometimes seem like the texture resolutions change during the course of the game. One moment, they're sharp and clear, the next they're not so great-looking.

And my stats...games from yesterday still haven't registered. Everything's a zero. Sucks.

That midair crash between me in the cobra and one of you guys (A7slam)? was awesome.

I think that was me. I remember asking what happened since I just exploded in mid-air without the sounds of a missile lock-on or gunfire.

I will have to bow out of tonight's match due to new dinner plans. I'll stop by the server after I get back to see if anyone is still playing though. :)

try this

The manual says to close out everything when you play. Firewalls, Instant messengers,and anything else you might have running in the background. Kind of harsh, but I guess it needs the whole comp to itself to run smoothly.



It has worked for me and I have been smooth sailing from there .

I still can't figure out my mic issue. I open up Sound Recorder in Windows and it picks up the sound (though it outputs it through the speakers), so it's not muted, but in-game it does nothing.

BTW, is there a way to make our servers a ranked one? Might be a good way to get more CAGs to join up on it and if it becomes too busy we could put a password on it perhaps.

Having a ranked server would be cool, but I'm not sure how EA hands 'em out.

I didn't know this until today but you have to hold the 'b' key down to talk with (only) your squad. If you're the squad leader, you can also hold the 'v' key to talk to the commander. If you're not part of a squad, you can't talk to anyone.

I would guess that the commander only talks to squad leaders using the 'v' key but not having been a commander, no clue.

Thanks, but I do hold the B button when I'm in a squad. It still doesn't work. And at times, even when I hold the B button down, the mic icon doesn't show up. I really have no idea what the deal is. This is one of the reasons I'm not too big on PC gaming. At least with consoles, it's all plug and play.

I am getting a brand new NVidia Card today from BB along with BF2 for Free! Woo!

So anyways, I'll probably be joining the clan if that's ok with you guys.

My name in game will be: Lordwow (or {CAG}Lordwow) or something along those lines. No Mic yet, but soon (have to pay off the new card first.

So how did it go last night ? sorry I couldnt make it I was at the movies watching batman begins which by the way is a hot ass movie. I think you have to pay for the ranked servers im not so sure .

What type of mic do you have steve ? is it a USB one or is it the regular one you plug into the back of your card . Have you tried testing it out in the audio options in the game ?

Im gonna try and play on the server but usually no one is there at all Dosent anyone play there atleast for fun . Ill be on tonight .

I would play more on the cag server if you didnt have to wait for 1 other person to join to start a game. Its really annoying. It would be nice to be able to go in any time and practice flying or look for nice sniping spots on the maps. I guess the game doesnt like you to do it that way though.

You can, you just have to deal with the text in the middle of the screen that says "Game will start when 1 more player joins" or whatever. Other than that you can fly, drive, scout out the map... etc.

I (ColonFeral) was on at the 10pm meet time last night, but only saw 2 other CaGs on. There were 2 guys from some <PAT>? clan also, though I don't know if they were from here or just 2 guys gettin some practice in. Either way I had a decent little bout with em, 2 vs 1 and I more than held my own. It's be nice to see more people play on the CaG server, if just to work on some squad tactics, everytime I join a squad on a ranked server noone communicates and it's all very chaotic.
