    Sorry for that -- FRAPS was defaulted at half-res capture setting for some reason. :(

    hello

    i read that BF BC2 need 1Mbps internet connection. Have anyone tried running BF BC2 online on 384Kbps internet? (maybe by try capping the BW from the QoS on router)

    btw my 384K internet still able to play CoD4 MW1, L4D2, and BF2 at 100ms stable.

    thanks
    sorry my bad english

    Cant say much but it should be enough. FW log showed low amount of data sent and moderate recieved data for several hours of beta testing on packed servers.

    Well checking logs it seems to boil down to less than 80-160Kbit/sec down and 20-40Kbit/sec up. Divide by 8 to get Kbyte number.

    I am in the 9th level right now [should be pretty close to end] and all I can say is that the SP is good, though its not exactly like BFBC1 its more like COD with much bigger area. You don't have random vehicles here & there which you can drive at will, & the levels are straightforward for the most part.

    As for the visual I think they are a mixed bag textures are fairly high resolution & crisp and some levels [early ones] are amazing to look at. While the some of the later levels are quite ugly looking...I feel its mainly due to some minor flaws in art & the inaccurate HDR which incurs a LOT of loss in texture detail, I also think that the particles are overused when having effects in high cause there's just too much of it to see anything clearly. The AA too is just as useless as it was in the beta, I can see jaggies even when running 16xAA which tells that AA is not applied to every surface. [I think its basically no AA for alpha buffers, this makes things which behind alpha such as smoke look low rezy and jagged as hell]

    Anyone wants some screenshots ?

    Why does this game have enormous mouse lagg? The moment I moved my mouse I turned the game off, you cant possibly expect someone to play with such lagg.

    Hmmm, if this has a good proper SP campaign, I might give it a try at some point. Is it just the conquest mode wrapped up in a good storyline? Or is it a SP campaign like a normal single player FPS?

    Well it is a shame they still havent fixed the MSAA issue with skybox going by screenshots in screenshot thread. It leaves a bitter taste in my mouth when I think this might be a late port job with flaky/buggy results or say... alpha/beta stage. But anyways in beta I barely noticed jaggies unless ondirect contrast with sky due to 4xAA/TSAA*, wide tent AA mode and native res. Image looked very smooth with little bluriness.. very clean look. Heck just look at my beta screenshots with just 4xMSAA/TSAA*.

    * Not sure if TSAA is used at all in game.

    During the beta a .ini option was introduced: RenderAhead (default 2, set to 0 for least mouse lag). It will be included in day 1 patch. We aint at day1 yet.
