    Running ultra 1080p. Smooth enough, some rates dropped here and there. Drop it back down to auto settings I reckon

    On top of building at C is a power weapon. A missile launcher that can lock onto ground or air vehicles. Have to lock on then hold the sights on the target to get a hit. When the building collapses it's replaced by a grenade launcher like the one in predator

    Well at least the beta proves my suspicion that the only easy way I am playing this is on a new console. Poor laptop chugging along trying to run it on low, what I can see of it looks great though in terms of the level design/detail and the general controls.

    Bloody hell 14-9 on PC. First time have made a positive KD ratio ever on. BF3/BF4 beta :)

    Probably down to the patrol boat, it's a beast.

    Just fell foul to the spawn in empty vehicle option, enemy flag and there was an empty tank, tried spotting and no one inside it. 100m sprint got halfway there then it fired and killed me :)

    Less splash damage on tank shells as you have armour piercing by default

    Should be able to yes, I believe early access is for premium players, MoH owners and digital deluxe pre-orders.

    I seem to have worse performance than most, but it's probably been quite some time since I updated my drivers.

    Hearing little rumours that Nvidia cards suffering, which makes sense really.

    @Pinky_Floyd Yup it is ready for me (all I have is BF3 premium)

    ..but I have 32bit Windows7 so have to wait until the release or my 64bit Windows8 disk arrives, need to test though because BF3 was on lowest setting for 30FPS so I'm borderline, check the specs.

    3.15 ghz Intel Core Duo 6Mb cache (64 bit)
    Geforce gtx 260 graphics card 848mb
    4 GB RAM DDR2

    Which part to upgrade to make the most difference?

    Genuinely not being funny... all of it. Battlefield games definitely benefit from quad core CPU or greater, you could probably do with some more RAM and your GPU is probably just starting to show it's age.

    If you are getting W8 64bit anyway then do that and give it a test. If your CPU is limiting the game, then you might well get the same performance here.

    Ta!

    If only I could justify all of it. Battlefield is the only game I struggle with atm. All upgrade would be 350+, it s a lot of money to spend for one game no matter how much I love it.

    Wife is playing on 360,looks just like BF3 quality and 3 flags only.

    Yeah,I'll wait till PS4.

    Watching pc players will keep me entertained during beta.:-P
  • Deleted user 1 October 2013 14:35:46
    Three flags you say? Get in!! Great news.

    The 360 gun textures look like planks of wood.

    Tried 360 version after the PC version oh dear :)

    Empty map, too big for conquest 24 players. Rush/obliteration/domination will be fine as action is focused on one area

    Graphical glitches galore. Top of skyscraper C was barren no furniture or debris unlike PC version. Put this down to an older build.

    Has anyone preordered BF4 through Simplycdkeys? If so will did you get beta access?

    In case anyone didn't know it BF4 deluxe + Premium for 54.99

    @Pinky_Floyd no issues on my GTX660 pal (with an i5 and 8 jiggly bites of rams). Got it set at 1080p with everything up. Haven't checked exact fps but it's smoooooooooooth.

    Give it a day or two and the tech sites will probably have some benchmarks up, might get an idea of the best performance upgrade.

    FAKE EDIT: Just been messing around with the settings on an empty server, and for me at least the difference in fps between 'low' and 'ultra' is not especially pronounced.

    CPU usage is pretty high - lowest I've seen is 57%, and most of the time its in the 70s or higher. This is on an i5 2500k running at 3.4GHz - I suspect I might need to overclock to see better results, at least at lower settings.

    Anyone who does want to play the untextured version on 360,only quickmatch seems to get you into a server.

    I get loads of frame rate drops in mine, or like, frames skipping or whatever you call it. Still playable, but not smooth. Lowering the graphics settings makes no difference either :/

    Also they didn't give you the option to get rid of the neon UI elements :(

    For what it's worth, my extremely unscientific comparison has found that I have less than half the minimum fps in BF4 compared to BF3 at the lowest settings.

    @1920x1080, everything on low, Noshr Canals with about 50 people my minimum fps was about 110, more often up between 120 and 150 (I originally joined a city map but it changed just as I got in, couldn't be bothered to find another server).

    Same settings on BF4, almost full server (probably about 60 people) I was averaging about 50-60 fps, saw it (briefly) drop into the 40s at one point, sometimes as high as 70 odd. A bit more hectic than the BF3 game I was playing, but this definitely has much worse performance (for me) than BF3.

    @WoodenSpoon
    Try running in borderless window. I'm still getting low fps but at least it's smooth now and playable.
  • Deleted user 1 October 2013 16:17:12
    Do you still need to have the BF3 disc? I'm a premium subscriber but traded in the game a long time ago.

    I haven't tried it but according to reddit the 320.49 drivers fix performance issues for nVidia players like me.

    Will also try out borderless window, cheers bananazniper!

    I was so hype today at work to play it. Had a fucking nightmare day. I thought at least theres BF4 Beta! Come to play it, and somehow it looks worse then BF3 on my PC haha :(

    Pretty much the same settings as well in the graphical options. Oh well it is a beta i suppose!

    I love the spawn camera box.So you can truly see what mess you maybe spawning into.
