    Battlefield 2

    Just got a new system on the weekend, and installed battlefield 2 (been waiting to play it for ages but my old geforce 4 wasnt supported) and it is excellent, just being a madman and running over people in my hummer. Does anyone else like the Battlefield games? I was a bit of a veteran at bf1942 and could quite often be found flying b17s upside down under bridges :twisted:

    Battlefield 2 is excellent....ahhhhhh...much fun playing that. Esp. since I get to drive an Abrams around. Strange though: the enemy look like the teachers at our school. Anyone else notice that?

    Most people are running an Nvidia 6600-6800 or an ATI X700-800 these days for good value for performance.

    Re: Battlefield 2

    I'm running it fine on an X300 Radeon PCI-Express card. My main gaming haunt is XBox Live, so PC games don't hold me for that long. Since BF2 is being released for XBox shortly, I think I will use that to game with and avoid system crashes, and the thought of updating my graphics card to something decent costing in the region of (wait for it) £280. Ouch. No thanks.

    Get behind me satan!

    But you're right. I bought the XBox 360 magazine over the weekend and some of the vidoes of up-coming titles are mouth-watering.

    Damn I hate spending money!

    Re: Battlefield 2

    Ive been playing this for about 5-6 weeks now and I love it! I have stopped playing DoD mainly due to all the ****holes that seem to be playing the game now it is well established. In my last 3 weeks of playing DoD I have been banned from 3 servers for "cheating" well excuse me for having a decent PC, over 6 years experience of playing online FPS and no I dont need a wallhack to know where your coming from if your going to sprint accross gravel this wonderous device of mine known as headphones can pretty much tell me which direction your coming from /rant off

    Re: Battlefield 2

    BF2 is a great game! The Special Forces expansion was very dissapointing though and the Euro Force addon was an absolute pain to get installed due to EA Downloader.

    I am an experienced guy and had problems - if you were not technically minded there would have been no way you would have got it working. <grumble>

    Re: Battlefield 2

    I have just bought a joystick for Jets and choppers. Took a bit of getting used to though. Im fairly confident with the jets but I seem to be better with choppers with mouse and keyboard at the mo.
    My X fire is a bit flakey for some reason but after 8:30 you can look me up on a server somewhere most nights.

    Re: Battlefield 2

    Chopper is ok. I just found that using the throttle on my joystick made them unflyable. I mapped the throttle to buttons for choppers and its dead easy to fly them.
