The thing I love about PC gaming? No stupid ass little kids.

Yeah man...totally agree...though I wish there was some type of in game chat so we didnt have to use Ventrillo or Teamspeak - so you could actually communicate with randoms easier or talk a little trash in the lobby after the game.

Download and run PBSetup and update your Punkbuster.

I played last night with no issues.

Nice...good call DD. Haven't been on much lately on account of moving from FL to AZ. Still getting settled in but should be back into my regular play schedule soon if you still want to bang out those co-op missions.

I'll give it a try when I get home. I'll also try playing from IE and now Mozilla. I can talk to my friends and see the party invite/chat when using IE but not Mozilla So I use Mozilla when playing solo and IE when in a party

Firefox is all I use and like I said, no issues. Maybe it's an add-on you're using? Try starting Firefox in safe mode and launching the game. (Help->Restart with add-ons disabled) If it works then, enable each add-on individually and try launching the game each time to find out which one it is.

I have no add-ons on Firefox. It was working fine at the launch.. then after a patch it kept saying my flash plugin is missing

Now the flash plugin seems fixed but I get the punkbuster error

MVP #1 and Ace Squad makes it better. I need the ribbons 2 more times and those 2 medals are mine for easy 10k exp

The firefox missing plugin "error" is harmless. I get it all the time and don't seem to be missing anything. Also, I rarely get disconnects which is nice because I get enough frustration playing the game. The only issues I've had recently were when the Origin servers were down over the weekend.

Yeah the missing plugin wasn't a big deal except that I was preventing me (or something else was) from seeing the party invite/chat/friends online in Firefox. Everything was working perfectly in IE tho...

Now it works in both

If anyone is looking for some fun / casual play, please send me an invite

Is there a way to change your windows color to basic automatically when running the game? Would be nice to know so I don't get another dumb pop up saying it want to change to it.

No idea what it even does it seeing as my PC is pretty beast. Hoping for some kind of fix for this.

Locate BF3.EXE, right-click and select the Compatibility tab and place a check in Disable desktop composition and it will switch to the basic scheme as soon as you start the game (and switch back when you close BF3/Origin) so you'll never get it while playing.

THANK YOU SO MUCH. Man it was annoying getting the error while gaming.

Am I the only one who still plays this on PC? I'm starting to see why companies are paying more attention to console vs PC

Well if you ever need a team mate or something feel free to post up. It's rather hard to find a group of people who consistently play the game. I had a friend who spent about 2K on a new gaming rig. Just to up and quit because he felt it was two expensive lol.

When I play it's only on PB 64 HC servers but I haven't been on is the last few days. I watched all of S1 of Game of Thrones over the last few days and did nothing else. BF3 player tag is Tinker0620. I am in Ontario Canada, so I tend to use servers based on the east coast, no further west then Texas.

Just have to wait for the next DLC. It suppose to have really large maps, like some of the BF2 tank maps.

Biggest probm for me was the random spawn pt in some game modes. You spawn and then an opforce spawn right behind you even tho you were in a corner of a room.

Then there is the "GUN MASTER" game mode where you start with the 433 pistol and work up. The 44 mag was a PITA to get pass esp when some pple had gotten pass and have auto weapons. I would have like to stick with 93R instead since it's a burst weapon but of being auto upgraded to the next weapon which was the 44 mag well is kind of weird. You are using one weapon and when all of a sudden when you reach the goals for the next, in a middle of a fight your weapon is swapped... holy interruptus....eek.gif
