For someone stuck behind a work filter, can you explain/paste the article for me? What's this about modifying files? Not that it will really concern me I guess considering I'm on a PS3...

Tinkering Battlefield 3 soldiers released a mod today allowing tweaks to the displayed color levels, with the most dramatic result involving the suffusion of the pervasive blue-tinged gradient into supposedly more natural colors. The sample photo album and comparison video definitely show a stark difference between stock and modified visuals, but when asked for his input on the mod, Battlefield 3 gameplay designer Gustav Halling said it was

because a good number of long time players are sick of ugly, dull & depressing visuals. all we wanted to do was disable colour grading, something that other games such as crysis have as an option but it's not locked away from users.

dice doesn't like people modding or tweaking anything.

Maybe it will motivate Dice to tweak it on their own.

Because DICE know that the real community can make a better game, and it would put shame on their POS game.

BF3 was designed to be a game engine demo for Frostbite 2.0, hence the bad game play and the reason other EA games are sold on the idea of using it.

If that were true than many fans would have complained about it. Out of all the people that play the PC version of Battlefield 3, only a small number of them would be bothered by something like this.

This specific mod may seem harmless but DICE needs to stand by their rules. They can't allow certain mods that modify game files while not allowing others. What if fans wanted non-human player models? What if they wanted everything to be a shade of pink?

Are you implying that DICE are afraid of what the "real community" can come up with if they allowed modding for Battlefield 3? If so, then you're mistaken. Whatever the "real community" comes up with would be based on Battlefield 3. They'd be doing it to improve the game, not make a better one. Also, Battlefield 3 is EA's fastest-selling game to date (last I checked).

I don't know where you're getting these baseless claims from but you're wrong. Battlefield 3 was designed to be a first-person shooter based on the Battlefield formula. There's nothing to indicate that it's a tech demo for Frostbite 2. If that was their goal then they could have done it with a significantly smaller budget.

One more thing, the reason Frostbite 2 is being used in other games should be clear: DICE is a subsidiary of EA. Of course they're going to take advantage of a very capable and versatile game engine.

Does anyone play this on Xbox and find it aggravaiting to play?

I've played this alot since launch, but I just don't get it. The basic gun play seems really broken, as near unplayable & the maps have no flow what so ever to them.

I really enjoyed BFBC2, and I really want to enjoy BF3, but I just don't get. The game just doesn't seem to play well at all for me.

It's infuriating!!

Gotta say that since picking up a copy of armored kill, I've been engrossed all over again.

Brilliant expansion.

You've made it very clear you don't like the game so why do you keep posting in this thread? Usually people avoid stuff they don't like.

Besides that every thing you said is completely off base. Anaron already covered why.

My only grief with Armored Kill is Alborz Mountains TDM which has bad spawns and quickly becomes a sniper-fest, good thing I'm more of a Conquest/Conquest Large kind of guy

I had my account stolen about a week ago. Not sure how since I had a good password, only had BF3 on my account, and play it maybe twice a month.

I got a case created with EA painlessly, but now need to talk to an account specialist since the hacker changed my birthdate and security questions, so it wasn't cut and dry for them to hand it back over to me.

Not the end of the world since I don't game a lot, but if I don't get it back or my BF3 progress is erased, I'll be sure to never fork any money over to EA anymore. They really are the worst gaming company in existence.

I disagree with that completely. Every time I've used EA's customer support I've come out the other end completely and surprisingly pleased.

The two times I had to use their customer support they gave me a code to get *any* game new or otherwise for 50% off, and the other time they gave me a code to get a new or otherwise game for free.

Oh yeah, and they also solved the issues I was having quickly too.

Have you perhaps thought that maybe the fault actually does lay with you and not EA? That maybe your password was not as strong as you thought it was? Just putting that out there because it's not likely they hacked EA to get your info.

You must be lucky. I had two friends who bought the Limited Edition of Battlefield 3, only to find the key would unlock the standard version. Hours spent on live chat, only to be told that they had bought the wrong version and refused to see any proof. This issue was pretty public as well.. In the end they found an email address for an EA rep for our country who fixed things up.

Finally got my account back last night. I had to talk to a bunch of their service people, but eventually got in contact with an account specialist. Overall it was relatively painless, so no complaints here.

I also had my Battle.net account stolen, but I was able to get it back in literally 10 minutes. The people at Blizzard really know their sh*t, and EA should take a huge glance at how they run it. EA also badly needs an authenticator app like Blizzard has.

No, not my fault at all. My password was a mix of 12 random characters, so there's no way in hell somebody could guess it. It's a huge widespread problem and there are a ton of people on the forums and Youtube complaining about it. The trend seems to be that it's people from Russia stealing the accounts somehow.
