BF4 is just bugged, nearly everyone is having a crash at some point.

Why are you posting this info here? Dice arent trawling the net for this info. I`d suggest posting on there website or sending this info to them via there support.

Dont see half a dozen or so reports posted from another forum being the key. I`d wager there`s already a swathe of data and people willing to provide data on the Battlelog system forums/support they have.

And again it would of been better to post with a link or announcement from DICE asking for the data, and linking to the official means.

Seems unnecessary to post info here we could easily just post ourselfs to the Battlelog site.

Possibly - the main aim was for *us* to see what the common problems are - any patterns etc.

I've found that running in borderless window helps too - but might be the patch...

The game is broken, hard. The devs/EA don't care (as can be seen in the forums as they are a complete no show) if they did they would have fixed it by now rather than leaving it this long then release a 1GB patch that makes the game crash even MORE.

 

But you wanted some specs so here you go.

What Size Game ie 32/64 player: 64

What Operating System: Windows 7

Processor: AMD 8350

How much System RAM do you have: 16GB

Are you running full screen, windowed, full screen boarderless window: Fullscreen

What sound card are you using: Integrated Realtek HD

Screenshot of your BF4 config: **Everything** is set to Ultra on 1920*1080

Its the server code also the drivers from AMD that are contributing to the crashes, on the server side theres nothing you can do although i heard turning Ambient Occlusion off helps to avoid crashes so try turning that off if you crash a bit see if it helps. otherwise posting this info is useless as like someones said the game has bin out for weeks and theyd of compiled data from battlelog so posting stuff here wont help in the slightest.... no offense
