Well BF4 automatically puts in "optimal" graphics settings for you anyway. It may not be the highest that your card could do but for multiplayer its all about the fps. You dont want your frames dipping low when your going into to kill people cus then you die.

 

The latest beta driver from AMD is supposed to increase performance with BF 4 i think so try installing that. Im running 13.4 atm and it runs fine i might update me drivers soon

BF4's auto setting are no good for me, get about 35-40 on auto, nvidia's settings I get 55-65.

May be different for everyone else, but deff with a try if you're not getting great performance.

Should have released the beta with obliteration on the first day. Having so much more fun on that mode than the conquest.

Oh yeh nvidia's settings are lower than on auto, my point was that nvidia's settings hit the magical 60fps whereas auto doesn't.

I can't launch the game because the site doesn't recognize that the Battlelog Plugin is installed. Not sure where to go from here.

Which browser?

 

I had the same issue (Firefox Aurora), and the problem turned out to be the default settings for the ESN plug-ins (two of them) - they were set to NOT load automatically; changing the settings to load automatically solved the problem (Windows 8.1 RTM x64 - yes, Aurora is my default).  BattleLog (and the ESN plug-ins) use your default browser, though it loads rgw plug-ins in ALL your browsers - if you launch from Origin it will use your default browser, but you can launch BattleLog from any browser.  If BattleLog has issues, check your plug-in settings.

I can't get myself to love the Graphics on the Xbox 360, but I'm dying to play it on the One.

 

Compared to other games like Gears of War, COD, and Halo, or even Medal of Honor, the recoil in BF4 is intense as hell, I'm not even sure if I'm even getting enough feedback when hitting players though.

The beta doesn't have the HD texture pack included on 360 the final will look a lot better, of course one will look even better.

I should have known. I wish it did, I'd be able to get a feel of who I'm shooting at.

AMD doesn't have an equivalent yet, they're working on it.

They do actually. It's basically a rebranded Raptr that can optimise some of your games' settings. Very few are supported from the looks of it and I'm not sure if BF4 is among them since I don't have it installed any more.

It's not. Even BF3 isn't yet supported because of "This game does not yet have enough data from the AMD community to suggest optimal settings. Please check back soon."

As the time passed by and I got more bored of this map, I only got worse at the game. Exactly the opposite of what should happen :laugh:

I have played about an hour so far so I still need some gaming time. Plus my controls are not set up so that affects my game play. I have always played BF on PC and played the original, 2 and 3. I never played 2142 or whatever it was. I have not played console games since PlayStation.

 

1. I have some questions. The game graphics, at least the menus, have this wave or ripple go down the screen. I think it is a part of the game and its style or is my graphics messed up. Maybe it does it in the game but I can't remember at the moment. Do you get that?

 

2. So far I like the graphics like smoke, small objects floating around like the paper, and fire but everything else seems blockish. I know in an interview they were saying that they did not care so much about the best graphics but I feel textures could have been better. What do you think?

 

3. The map has a large feel to it but I still need some more game time. How do you guys feel about the map?

 

4. As far as game play. It does not feel like the previous games. It feels like a console game or something. When fighting another person to me it feels like whoever fires the gun first is going to win. I don't know how to explain it but I just don't like the feel of the game. What do you guys think?

Well if you want digital deluxe, you can only get that from Origin, and Premium is about the same price anywhere $49.99 unless you can find a coupon code or have credit at Amazon.
