Just DL'd and played the beta for a few minutes...Had the settings at default ultra running 4K on a 980Ti and was sitting around 50 FPS average with dips into the low 40s and peaks into the 60s. Looks pretty. I will post some in game up here shortly... :)

How does everyone like it?

So far, I keep getting disconnected a couple of times before I stay in a server...other

Got an email about it early this morning ~2am, hopefully I can get it to run decently on a 750 Ti. I really like the old era war games much better than any of the modern/future stuff.

You'd have received a key if you signed up as an insider and selected your platform. I did that a couple weeks ago

Not sure on how quick their turnaround will be, just keep an eye on your email (showed up in my promotions inbox in gmail)

Being a little late to the game is usually better with these BF releases anyway. It gives them time to fix a couple major issues before I try to fight with it.

Thanks for the heads up though.

I literally cannot find the option. :facepalm:

Going to try DL it again and maybe installing the riva tuner statistics server and see if that makes it happen...


FRAPS...

Its a 4K sized pic, FYI.
EDIT: Or was before the uploader (likely me) borked it... I can't win today, LOL!

Here are my FRAPS results at 4K after a few minutes of playing...

This is 4K, Ultra with AA off and Motion blur to 20% (because I hate it, LOL). Giga 980TI Extreme Gaming @ stock

Just noticed the email in my inbox an hour ago. Downloaded the game and will probably take a look at it tomorrow, a bit late to look at it tonight and if I start now I won't get to bed until 4-5 a.m. probably.

I just downloaded it today. Thus far the experience hasn't been amazing: Matchmaking failed, matchmaking failed, error connecting to server, matchmaking failed...

There are known issues (earlier?) today... though I got in and stayed in 3x.



EDIT: And now I am not able to get in... :(

Typical Battlefield game. Downloads fine but can't join a single game. Hundreds of servers but none will connect...

I'm not even sure why I thought it would work.

Because EA servers are offline and having problems.


I can't even get the game to load, it crashes to desktop.
