Oh!! I sure haven't! Thanks for the heads up - will check it out.

Sweet video! BF4 on the PS4 is going to be amazing. Two more weeks to go!

He mentioned his ease at the heli controls, which I found interesting since I've heard others complaining about them.

Wonder if it'll be easier to pick up. I was proficient in air combat in BF3, but couldn't seem to master them due to the awkward controls.

Choppers handle like a dream in BF4! All the maneuverability I thought should have been in 3.

I like how they spin out when disabled (at least in the vids)

You're going to need one good pilot to put that bird down for repairs, and it'll probably make them more valuable tools. No more cat and mouse landing at the edge of the map to repair and having an infinite bird in the sky for those that can staff and run away well.

He said he used to fly RC Helicopters and the control sticks were the same, that is why he was so good at it.

Yup, took that as it's probably a bit more intuitive.

BF3 controls made no sense compared to other mappings you could do. Always figured it was intentional to keep air from ruling the battlefield.

Make sure I am on the list for PS4 players, not sure when I will be on over the launch weekend but I will be doing extensive comparisons between Battlefield and CoD to get a feel for which I will be spending more time with.

I really want to see how they push that engine in the single player. I saw one gif that made my jaw drop (rainy highway)

I've seen you ask that twice without much help offered to you here. 1st off, do you have the game and can't get it to work, or are just curious about it?

I played BF3 on xbox 360. I am currently playing bf4 on pc until the PS4 comes out, so I honestly can't be of help as far as BF4 on PS3. But with BF3 for me on xbox 360 I had to set up the appropriate settings in the 360 main menu to allow Dolby Digital 5.1. It took me a couple tries when I first started playing BF3 but eventually my Denon avr would indeed read Dolby Digital.

Also, are you using an avr with your setup or a headset?

I know for BF3 it was Dolby, not DTS.
Yes, I have the game. The splash screen in the XMB, when you leave it in the game tile, says Dolby Digital and DTS. I have the appropriate codecs highlighted in my main audio section in the XMB and I'm outputting with an Onkyo 809 with a 7.1 setup. There is no audio option in the game to force it to DTS. Dolby Digital is what my receiver displays. My assumption is that it also has DTS-MA.

I doubt it has DTS-MA...I don't think any games do. You'd either be looking at normal DD/DTS or PCM. Did you try disabling DD on you're PS3 to see if it would then output to DTS. Been a while since I looked, but I think you can disable DD in one of the menus. I'll check when I get home because I prefer DTS as well.

Good games last night even though we got trounced. Feel like a chicken with my head cutoff learning the maps...and having some trouble aiming. Not sure if I'm rusty or something changed. Seems like my reticle is skipping while I'm aiming.

I spent time in the Training Section last night, and it helped quite a bit. I got where I at least wasn't crashing constantly. I still can't shoot anything LOL.

I plan on doing training for a half hour or so every day or two (strictly helicopters) and get good at them.

Mph, I stole your battlelog logo and copied it to my profile also. I guess anyone can do that, you just click on the picture and it gives you an option to copy it and apply it to your battlelog profile. Thanks smile.gif

Cravit8, I saw your message, it was my last game though. I'll try and catch up with you next time.

Regarding the heli controls, I never flew RC helis but I've been interested in doing it. I would retry the default controls, but for some reason I dont do well when throttle and a directional control are on the same analog stick. The inbetween areas are what gets me in trouble, so I end up putting throttle on a button. To each his own, in bf3 it wasnt a problem for me, but now that we're forced to have a spot button it takes the place of countermeasure for my top buttons...which really sucks.

Does anyone know if the PC or PS4 will have two jet spawns for each team in conquest? Right now on PS3 there is only one jet spawn per team, I'm hoping this is just a limitation due to the fewer number of players.

Cannons w/ HE rounds on the little bird make me happy too. The damn gattling gun got me nowhere in BF3.

I expect the maps to be much larger and there to be more vehicles available. I doubt it's any different than PC.

Funny, I did the same thing, and plan to do the same thing each night. I started flying some after training and was doing better, just need to learn a few more nuances to evade.

That's awesome Neo.

Trail - there are multiple jets per team on PC so I'd expect the same on PS4. I've noticed on a couple maps they have at least one of each type of jet on each side.

Played a few games with the ds4 and so far I'm loving the feel of it. Took a little time to adjust to the shorter sticks after playing with the ds3 for the past few days which led to a few extra deaths, and no better way to break it in on operation locker smile.gif
