    Min specs on play are:-

    Windows XP (does not work on Windows 2000/Me)
    Pentium IV 1.7GHz (Pentium IV 2GHz or Athlon XP recommended)
    512 MB RAM (1GB RAM recommended)
    16x DVD-ROM drive
    128 MB Graphics card
    DirectX 9.0b compatible sound card

    So you have to have XP as your operating system otherwise it will not work. I'm pretty sure you'll probably just about barely be able to play it at that spec and it will not look too brilliant either.
    This type of game has to be played with all the bells and whistles switched on if your gonna play it like the developer intended. I'm pretty sure my A64 3500+, Leadtek 6800GT will not be able to cope with everything switched on at higher resolutions but I'm still hoping ;) Here's a screen shot for those who haven't seen it yet. I recomend you watch some of the trailers and in game footage.

    cannot wait for this. its just too damn long a wait. seen on another forum so guy who wad invited in a clan by EA to play BF2, that he ran the game at 1280x1024 with 4AA, 8AF with high eye candy on a system like AMD64 3400, 1gb ram and 6800GT and it ran smooth as hell :D and this wasnt optimised code neither, ea told them the final product will be alot better. dont think there will be games out for at least another 6 months that will stretch top end nvidia's & ATi's

    I'm waiting for this type of game where damage to the environment is more realistic.
    Like if a tank shell hits a wall, it blows a hole in it. Or makes the building collapse.
    And bullet holes remain. Just as in real life, really. I guess that kind of thing isn't too far away. But it would make these games so much better to have an environment which takes damage and is changed because of it.

    Agreed. As well as destructable environments that remain destroyed (hee hee), I'd like the game to focus more on vehicles not respawning so often also. I do realsie this would be frustrating for online multiplayer action, but it would give a whole new tactical meaning to the game to take out heavy artillery etc if it didn't respawn after 5 seconds.

    Maybe as with the adjustable ticket rate (with one patch version 1.4?), they could have an adjustable vehicle re-spawn rate as a compromise to it not re-spawning at all?

    Again, as you say, with destructable buildings etc, the game would play completely different. Regarding the available weapons classes, vehicles and combat modes, I am relatively confident EA will have gotten the game balance right. Afterall, it's just an updated version to the excellent DC mod. What concerns me though is the AI in single player - I really hope they improve this aspect, as I used to play offline quite often also.

    Also, despite seeing a fair few videos, and knowing the the maps are meant to be scalable (depending on numbers playing), I am concerned about the range of environments offered and how these new maps will appeal, in comparison to those offered in BF1942. I like the sunshiney maps, El Al etc. One thing about BF Vietnam was the maps were so dreary and depressingly brown and overcast, I just didn't want to play them much (despite all the other negatives).

    If BFV is anything to go by, the added textures will put an enormous strain on video card memory (hence recommendations for 256MB VRAM which I and many others don't have) as well as plenty of RAM. Just hoping my own modest setup will cope also - I'm not too keen on the idea of extensive upgrading just yet and want to wait to see what happens to graphics card prices when the next wave come in.

    i like the idea of no re-spawn on veichles. The team would have to use there one tank or hele wisely or it could mean losing. that would but a whole new concept for the engineers to keep it running.

    Yea, Pre-ordered! If anyone is interested I play over at GC http://www.global-conflict.org it's NOT a clan thing, basically you join a side, and have 1/2 battles a week (don't even need to play every battle) and once a large enough portion of the map is captured your side wins :) If you've never played in this kind of envoirment before, then you should try it. I'ts great fun (I prefer it to clan wars)!

    Just hope my rig is up to it.. .looking at a new gfx card maybe :(
    AMD 64 3200mhz
    1gb Ram
    Rad 9800pro
    Win 2k (sure it will work on there)

    Theres a developer chat on gamespy at 4PM today PST and they apparently will have the demo after the chat. EDIT or it could mean stay with there service to get the demo when its out, to be onest its abit mis leading in order to get more signups.

    Says This

    Developer Chat:
    Classified Information
    Join the Developer chat this Thursday at 4PM PST and find out the inside scoop on Battlefield 2. Then stay with us to download the demo-and get the latest news, videos, and much more. Plus see how good you get on our ladders and servers.

    http://www.gamespyarcade.com/promotions/bf2/landing/index.htm

    So if you want it first you would need to subscribe to fileplanet and pay but it wont be long before its on public servers but speed availability will be terrible to start with as its hugely awaited

    1 Hour until the demo will be released its official :)

    Gamespot will release the demo before anyone else at the link below, for members of gamespot (like me :)) they will have super fast servers available, for non members you can still download just not such fast servers
