Hey there fellas! I’m just gonna write some things about the PC BETA in English so we contribute to the game. If you’re in the PC BETA like I am and you find some bugs, don’t be shy. This is actually my first BETA experience too and it’s our duty (since we get to play the game early) to spread out the word about the stuff that needs to be fixed. The actual forum you can write about your experience and the stuff that annoys you is http://forum.ea.com/eaforum/posts/list/45/375818.page#3610681 (that’s actually my post about the stuff I found out). Just click on reply (so we’ll keep all the PC bugs in one thread) and write about the game…Even suggestions!
I’ll post my findings even here! Keep playing it and let’s try our best so they can make a game of the year (even if it’s just the beginning of the year) and…GAME ON!
Hey fellow battlefielders… I just wanted to complement every single one of you for beeing such a cool community and helping to drive the game in a positive experience.
Just wanted to include some of the bugs that happened to me. (didn’t read the whole list of bugs posted before)
1. Crouch bug:
After moving forward when you crouch sometimes the moving direction would stuck and you would run forward automatically even when you release all the keys. (I use a G15 Logitech keyboard if this helps). I would suggest a toggle crouch/sprint.
2. Support for Razor mouses (Lachesis):
I’m currently using this mouse and I cannot change the keys to one of the side buttons of the mouse (mouse button 4,5). Also the scroll up and scroll down won’t get recognized for weapon changing.
3. Rank bug:
On some servers the rank won’t be recognized.
4. Class selection and unlocks:
-After you unlock an attachment when you want to select it you have to first change to another class then to the one you want to use to even see the unlock so you can then change it.
-I’m usually playing with the engineer class that has the power tool to repair vehicles. Sometimes I’m repairing some vehicle but I’m not getting the +20 exp.
I don’t know if this is a bug but you can only sprint forward. You can’t sprint diagonally. So when en enemy sees you, you have to stop (giving him a greater change of killing you) and then you can strafe left or right.
When you throw a grenade it feels like it flies in slow motion. Also I feel like…the hand grenades have a too small blast area and are not that powerful. Same goes for the grenade launcher attachment.
8. Server browser:
Aside from the crashes, it won’t display latency and when you select a filter you have to refresh the whole list. Also one thing…once I joined a server I didn’t see any option to add it to the favorites.
The servers you add to favorites won’t save if you get out of the game. When you restart the game it’s empty.
No complaints about the friends. The ones I added remained there.
-Sometimes when you join on a server and the game starts (on the attackers side) you start by looking in the opposite direction. Then it happens that you move out of the combat area.
-Also one thing to mention is the big text in the middle of the screen saying:”You were revived by???” at the beginning of the game, and it won’t go away until you die.
10. Steam: NOW WORKS!
When you’re in the game Shift-Tabbing (default Steam in-game menu) won’t pop out. You can see the cursor changing to the default windows one but you don’t see the Steam thing.
11. Resolutions: I’m using a 16:10 wide-screen monitor and the only 2 resolutions I can select to properly display the game is either the 1920×1200 (the native monitor resolution) or 1650×1050 (witch is kind of a strange resolution). Is there a way to implement aspect correction? So even if I select a 16:9 resolution (for example 1280×720) it stretches the game to a 16:10 aspect? I can play the game on Medium setting on a 1920×1200 but sometimes I experience a bit of frame rate drop and would really like to lower the resolution so the game keeps running full speed all the time.
I would really like to see some realistic game type. Even when you shoot people with regular Assault rifles or SMG’s or any other weapon to kill then with 2 or 3 bullets and for snipers just one.
About the game in general…it feels great. When you connect to a server with 60 latency the game works really well.
