why dont you want origin running all the time? it only uses 75MB of ram idle.

Yep, we finally did using this method.

It was definitely more cumbersome than getting the overlay to work with almost any other game, though, thanks to Origin getting in the way.

I dont want anything running if Im not using it. My computer boots with the bare minimum of processes/services and stays that way unless I need something open.

And they did get the steam overlay working with BF3 beta, but it was some weird process like opening bf3, alt tabbing, removing origin overlay, adding it to steam etc etc

I like how they made the effort to match some of the spoken dialogue to the subtitles.

Nobody around me is doing the midnight launch, I would just buy it on origin and preload but I still want a physical copy (so I can drool over the box when I'm not playing it). Anyone know if gamestop is doing same day shipping (where you get it delivered the day it's released) like they did with Bad Company 2?

Edit: Nvm, FOUND IT!!! It was at the bottom of the page.

Guess their stats are broke, 961m headshot vid. Unless it was faked, or maybe server crashed.

8 million for a beta is pretty good numbers.

Pre-ordered it through Origin yesterday.

Quick question. We're buying my father a new laptop for his birthday next month (the same I have), and plan on purchasing the game for him also. My question is, will the extra BF2 maps be available to purchase later also?

If not, I'll pre-order his copy tomorrow.

Yes they will be up to buy separately when they are released. Nobody knows when or what price though.

upgraded to 16GB
GTX460M 1.5GB
running the newest nvidia drivers

Ran the beta just fine, once I got on a decent server.

I put shadows on medium and turned off MSAA. Ran like butter then.

Wow just went to play bad company 2, I'm on the East Coast of the US, and there are 5 servers with under 130 ping. The rest are in Europe. Went to look at BF2, just a few Karkand servers and that's it. Where did all the servers/people go all the sudden? I was just playing two weeks ago and there were tons.... Guess everyone cancelled their servers and are waiting for the BF3 ones to go live? Oh well, it's off to CSS zombie mod for me while I wait.

I guess it's time to preorder. What would be the cheapest place with a guaranteed purchase delivery? Considering that D2D sells BF3 for only 40€ and Amazon US a digital download for 50 bucks, which is less than 35€.

CHECK! Had to turn down the volume so it would become some kind of mumble, but it is nicely done. The original is quite embarassing as a host though

I believe they released a BC2 patch a few weeks ago. Those might be older version servers. My uncle was having a similar issue last week. He patched up and had around 4k+ servers.

The number of servers has dropped dramatically since BF3 beta came out, I'm guessing lots of clans/community supported servers ended their contracts at the end of September since hosting a BC2 and BF3 server is not cheap. Kind of sucks, was considering just playing BC2 for another 6 months and waiting for BF3 to go on sale/have bugs ironed out.
