Indeed, at least some of the game files are cached when the game is still open, so if you leave a server for a the same map loading is near instant.

Now it will all be loaded and reloaded. More time to wait.

Also now that the main menu is outside of the game, is there a settings tool to change controls and settings on the outside as well? Because in the alpha the settings menu was in game.

Need to change the mouse sensitivity? Join random server, wait for it to load, hit esc and have at it.

As I said above, its only ineffiecient if it takes a long time. I mean, joining a server from the browser and having to the EA logo play everytime would be epic

If the game is designed for this behaviour, ie very fast and instant load to the map screen and instant exit to the browser, I see no issue at all. I'm willing to give it benefit of the doubt. The only issue I see relate to server capacity which may be even greater now. They definetly DONT want it to be like the BC2 launch, where it took like 2 days for the game to stabilize.

If the browser doesnt work, DICE can get ready for a shitstorm without equal

Why should we have to? Making it harder than needed to join a server. As I remember in the alpha you can alt tab and it will just close and re-open the game anyway.

Yeah, I'll buy retail as well if I go down that road, first time in a while.

From people that played the alpha, how fast was the game loading and quitting? BC2 loads and quits relatively fast, but not instantly like say Chrome or Firefox. Unless the system is built so that as soon as you click a server in the browser, a lot is reserved, it is going to be very annoying trying to get on busy servers (or hopefully there is an auto retry queue in-game).

Quitting is not so bad, but the game has that same annoying thing that BC2 has, you have to spawn to quit the game if you dont want to alt f4.

As for loading it isnt that bad.. it loads in the background. For example, you click join server and the game starts loading minimized that way you can keep browsing the server browser or whatever until it is done and then it auto maximizes.

I just dont like the idea of opening and closing.

Performance wasnt all that bad actually, like already mentioned just dont like the idea of it opening and closing. Question tho, does it actually close or does it just minimize? Just wondering because todays browsers use quite a bit of memory and have these dirty thoughts this will harm performance.

This is the world of 64 bit OS's and cheap ram.

I paid $300 for 12gb of DDR3 1600 a year and a half ago. Now it's like $100 for that. and I thought it was cheap as hell when I bought it.

Just re-read your post now.. are you asking if the browser closes? If so... no the browser does not close. When launching a game the browser stays open and the game opens. When finding a new server the game closes.

Can you plug an x360 controller or a joystick to move away from KB+M when you are on the jets?

Why would you want to do that for the controls for mouse and flying in bf2 where fine same in bc2 I actually think mouse users had more control due to being able to move the mouse quicker to its max turn angle with higher degrees of precision and stability then those using a wonky little stick, that said a full size joystick may be slightly more reliable then a mouse.

Well I hope it supports 360 gamepad so I can use it in single player kicking back on the couch playing on the TV, but of course I would never use a gamepad for MP.

My biggest concern, as with all frostbite games, is if renderahead is editable again. The alpha had pretty much same amount of mouselag as MoH2010 and BC2 in default settings.

Yer if not, you need an Nvidia GPU so you can force it. Does the flip queue size setting still work with ATiTrayTool or whatever??

No it does not. It used to work (in DX9 only), but has stopped some years ago (its just left over registry setting that does nothing).

It is actually the TOP and nr1 reason considering an nvidia gpu as my next buy, the max frames to render ahead setting is simply a must for me as a gamer.

Btw when the beta starts if I'm not lucky enough to get in and test it my self can someone test sniping at long range and test to see if it has the same issue as BC2 with ridges of mountains not being rendered correctly for the person standing in the distance.

With tessellation I would expect this issue to be either far worse or better dependent on how the tessellation works at a distance. This is the only pet peeve I have with the frostbite engine though with that said it happens in some other games also.

And don't forget, when you destroy a vehicle the enemy is given time to get out of it before it blows up.

There is no ingame browser, of course there is a server browser in battlelog. It worked good in the beta, you could stand in line and do whatever while its waiting for a free slot. And it was mere seconds (~5) until it loads map and goes ingame.

As for vehicle regen, i think its retarded but in the alpha i never got any regen. I think you need to stay out of combat for 30 seconds or so before you get any regen and even then its probably slow. Still retarded.

So preordered people only get the beta for 2 extra days before its open to all? I would have thought they would do a week or so early closed beta before the open version but oh well I was going to pre-order it anyways just haven't gotten around to it yet.
