    Heh. Like the digs at MW2 that keep cropping up. 'pussies with heartbeat sensors' and all that.

    Also random PC-only tip - no matter where you buy it from (online or disc), you can use the product key to register it on the EA Downloader, which'll be handy for backup purposes and whatnot. This has been the case for every EA game since 2008 or so, but hardly anyone seems to know about it.

    The saigai auto shotgun is transformed by the ammo upgrade. Being able to spam the trigger without having to reload every 2 seconds means you can let off that extra round to make sure someone dies rather than getting headshotted by the massively over-powered M1911 pistol.

    There's hope for the future yet

    Psychotext thinks thats because no one bought the console versions. :( We are still doomed.

    Can anybody recommend a clan (UK) that I could join that doesn't require 100 years of waiting, and that I teach the cousins of every clan forum mod how to stitch cardigans, or whatnot?

    I'm an adult.

    I like playing PC games.

    I will not threaten to stab your cat if you shoot me repeatedly in BFBC2.

    Please?

    So its basically like Steamworks? If I loose the game disc I can just redownload it from EA?

    Collapsing buildings with an objective in it seems over powered.

    I was just laying into a building with the minigun on that passenger helicopter when the thing just folded in seconds.

    Also rockets travel miles. I fired one at a tagged heli and a good 30 seconds later after spinning round the chopper it hit when it landed in the hills to repair.

    Awesome stuff though, although I miss picking unlocks.

    From what I've read, the servers themselves need to have Punkbuster updated as well.

    There are meant to be a few servers which have been updated and are now working fine.

    Yea, just a shame the only way I can connect is by joining a completely random server/game mode/map by selecting "Play now" :|
    I tried that last night and ended up playing Conquest on a map all on my own.

    Flawless victory!

    My love affair with this game is dwindling. After hardly playing at all on Friday/Saturday due to not being able to connect to servers and crashes to desktop, I settled down to some Sunday morning gaming....

    I'm getting kicked every 30 seconds due to some Punkbuster problem. Updated Punkbuster, but it makes balls all difference. Damn frustrating as the server browser is still hit and miss so can take a while to find a game, then get kicked due to this punkbuster problem :(

    Rinse and repeat that a few times, and I'm getting rather annoyed with it.

    There was a minor update to the punkbuster client files last night. If you are finding yourself being kicked by Punkbuster, then download the pbsetup tool and update your client install.
    The PB servers are currently under heavy load, so you can get the PBSetup file from Fileplay

    If you still experience kicks from your server, make sure you have uninstalled the Beta client from your system, and try restarting your server.

    Thats what Multiplay have to say about the new stuff thats happening.

    It seems to be some of the servers that need restarting to pick up this minor update...buggered if I can find one that doesn't kick me.

    I think it's worth comparing this launch to CoD4's. When the server situation improves and the community beds in the experience will certainly be different.

    Are there any ports I need to have open, so I can actually get a ping figure for servers? I just get "-"

    also I shall see if I can find your server and shoot you and Pyea in the face :)

    Ahh so that's why you shot me in the face at point blank when i spawned behind you :D

    Having loads of problems staying connected to games, lag, punkbuster kicks (I've updated and unistalled the beta).

    At the moment its fucking rubbish.

    I think everyone expected that there would be problems, but it's still utter bollocks to experience.

    Can almost bet that even when the Punkbuster problem is sorted, the EA master server will just die again anyway.

    I don't like the increasing amount of control publishers and developers have over game servers. In BF1942 anybody could run a server however they liked, which meant you got loads of fun modded servers, now everyone has to pay for them and they're all really serious, no low gravity, no nitro-boosted jeeps, no silly 1 second vehicle respawns.

    No surprise there are problems with MP on this one either, DICE has never been able to get that right first time. I'm just amazed they managed to include widescreen support and a server browser favourites function at launch.

    Hoping to have a bit of a session of this tonight, have been helping a mate move house thise weekend, so not really tried it. Had a go while pissed on Friday, and only managed to connect via the 'play now' button.

    Feel free to add me! Soilder 'Jetset_UK' reporting for cannon fodder.

    I've already posted this over in the Bad Company 2 PC group , but it's quite a good tweak/setup guide and deserves a wider audience:

    Think I'll just switch everything off.

    The play now option is hilarious, can't find a a game to get in on the server list so I give it a try, seven minutes later it tries to join a passworded private one.

    At the moment for me, the friends list is broken, the play now doesn't work, the server browser doesn't work properly, any server that runs PB I can't join, when I join a server that doesn't run PB I get kicked because PB didn't initialise.
