totally not me!!! I avoid flying the things!!!
You're a cad and a bounder chief.
Surely it should be a combination of the 2.
lol, so people that play normal mode dont realise that you are better off going for headshots? Only the leet players in hardcore must be skilled enough to know that eh? Ive got over 500 headshots so I think even us normal mode noobs know how to do headshots
Ive played hardcore enough to think that it isnt really suited to this kind of game, thought the same with B2 and project reality - I just dont find realism mode/mods conducive to this kind of game. In games like Arma where the game has been designed around the realism element it is a different story and it works very well , but I think in BF with game modes like rush realsim/increased damage just doesnt work so well.
As I said previously I prefer to be able to react when Im shot at, in hardcore mode you dont usually get a chance - if someone who is half decent gets the drop on you, you are usually dead before you can fire off a shot, where as in normal mode you can react, shoot back and if you are better than the other person you will usually manage to kill them before they finish you off. Also as normal mode lets you sustain more damage you usually get more entertaining prolonged firefights I find.
This is just my opinion of course, obviously some people love hardcore mode and thats great, each to their own.
Yeah sorry that should read --
should actually be based more on where you actually hit someone and not how many times you hit them.
Yep I see your point but you can do all of that in hardcore mode its just ... umm less forgiving thats all.
In regard to 'noob' playing on normal servers - I was simply saying that generally you will find that on the standard servers players are running around crazy (i.e call of duty style) spraying and praying. I also found this alot on the demo as well (until some servers showed up with HC enabled). - nothing wrong with that of course - as u say.. each to their own
Both modes are fun to play IMO but I feel that hardcore just encourages the team element a little bit more ,
whilst normal mode is better for those who just wanna run and have fun without taking it too seriously.
all is good in the world
I'm happy to announce: AVForums server is streaming to PBBans now!
Class Mate, Pb bans
Sorry about last night lads I was well up for some BFBC2 and was just getting my eye in when my Bulldog decided he didn't like the broadband filter anymore and decided to chomp it mid-way into a game. Just got a replacement from a m8 so back up and running now. Be on later tonight though
Sigs still haven't updated but there's a message on the site to say that it should happen soon.
I quite enjoyed a little bit of Conquest yesterday (even though I was after few beers), though I was rubbish and could hardly get to 1.0 K/D ratio.
Since yesterday evening 9 people have been kicked out for hacking by PBBans from AVF server
That's quality Ade.
Have I got this right, you can leave PB off to keep the server busy, but PBbans is watching for cheats?
No, Punkbuster is ON all the time. It only says it's off when you connect to server, but that is just a little trick to fool EA's master server. I even changed welcoming message to 'Punkbuster is ON and streaming'
Good skills bro.
There are some new Catalyst BETA drivers out (10.3b) that apparently fix the bad flickering in BFBC.
Hopefully they fix the grey spawn screen in HC mode severs, I doubt it though as I think it's an issue with the game and not the drivers.
ATI Catalyst 10.3 Preview Driver
Going to give these a try as i'm affected.
I am on the server now m8 and it shows as PB on in the loading window.
It is also saying my ping is 130ms that seems high to me.
Don't worry about about in-game pings, they are not working properly. Value is often wrong by 50-100ms
EDIT: (found info)
As for PB, yes it was showing On, now should be showing Off (though it is still ON). I keep changing this value in hope that one of the variables would fill the server, but so far, since changing to Conquest, server has not been full even once yet.
Do you know that offical 10.3 are out for few days now?
Yes mate thanks, I didn't try them as I am running 10.3a's. How are you finding them?.
Absolutely no difference here. Same FPS in BC2, exactly same score in Heaven 2.0 benchmark.
no XP drivers?
I am sure I have seen evidence of cheaters now, not me being killed, because even Gvers can do that I mean I thought I saw a 0 level bloke kill me with a tracer - which cannot kill anyone (reported on kill cam) and even if it was a grenade, how did he have the tracer gun at 0 level?
And other ones of 8 level with mgn ammo? I never got killed again by the same person so could not be 100% sure before gobbing off and accusing anyone.
Was that on AVF server?
Never new you could do this or do you mean screen shot? there is the Issue were Pb can kick you when Server files or System Pb is not updated. had this on servers ..
Doesn't suprise me to be honest. The server side of this game is just shocking to be honest. How EA can mess things up so much is beyond me.
Awesome! Just got myself up 3 levels, to level 6, in an hour.
Got a couple of 5000 point awards, including a gold star. No more rusty sheriffs badges for me.
Also got the red dot sight now. :arty:
My mouse is playing up though. I think I need to get a wired one and extension cable that will reach the sofa.
