Battlefield 4 - Page 137

post #4081 of 7284
The very first video I tried to save was wrong and I've had a few since. Need to check my latest pile and see what it looks like.

I think your right about the killcam Lazy. Guy who does the most damage gets the kill and is shown on the killcam, not the guy who finishes you off.

I posted some "bad" Battlefield moments videos to FB yesterday but also had some very cool. epic "only in BF" moments to share as well that I know I saved by hitting the share button but they just weren't there when I was looking through the saved videos yesterday.

Yeah, no idea what's up with The recorder. Doesn't help there's no documentation, so not really sure how its supposed to work anyways. I think the last FW borked it, but then again I wasn't using it much before...

I think there's a issue where the player
hitbox and players view are both a tad above where the 3rd person model shows when crouching. That's why you see people hiding behind cover yet still shooting you without seeing their gun at all. Same reason sometimes you think you've protected yourself behind a low wall only to get shot in in the head.

Its small difference, but it does show up now and then.

They should make it like they do for screen shots. You tap the share button and a different notification icon pops up on the upper right hand of the screen confirming your last 15 minutes of gameplay video recording was captured.

This would be a lot better than having to hit the share button, waiting for the "blue share screen" to pop up to confirm your video was saved. One time in BF4, after going through the blue screen ordeal, I came back to the game on the spawn screen (meaning I got killed while trying to save the video). It should be just as simple as taking a screenshot by holding down the share button a few more seconds or something to that nature.

Right now its backwards AFAIK. You tap the button to create a new start point.

Best bet is to do so when going into a new map load.

Yea that's my biggest beef is that you have to upload. I usually either wait to die or find asafe spot before hitting share. Unlike Lazy who stands on the outside path of locker holding the bomb, screwing around in share...

I didnt realize I had the bomb. I had an epic shotgun moment that I wanted to share, but I couldnt of course. I think I heard something in game and thats why I asked if I had the bomb. Oh well.

I like this new killcam thought. I would often be thinking that there is no chance the person got me since I was completely behind something, but they probably got the most damage into me. Makes sense since some kill assists will give you credit for the kill if you did a lot of damage.

@mphfrom77 this picture made me think of you. I can see this sign over your tv.

if that sign is at MPH house, i see him looking at it and then posting....

"I mean look at that sign, number one the shading could have been a lot better, if you look at color coordination of red shading on a blue background, who does that , everyone knows red and blue don't really go together. Also why is there a period after beer? the thought continues and anyone who's taken 5th grade English knows that Only weak men isn't a correctly worded sentence, why not use a comma, you really have to question what the developer of this sign was thinking when he created it, did he even look at the sign after he created it? did he even talk to any other sign creators and get some input? I am not even going to start on the selection of the wood for the frame, i will save that for another time... oh so many things that could have been done differently with this sign to make it better"






I love you MPH smile.gif

Hold on, this is going to take a while. Right MPH?
post #4096 of 7284
I'm just going to copy and paste all of MPHs rants. I'll start it off with "sit down and relax"
post #4097 of 7284
I forgot to mention, I had two blue screen crashes last night, both while playing Conquest. Called it quits for the evening after the second one.

I read about that shot, he must have exploded, which BF4 doesn't do.

I told you a while back. Pack a pair of shorts, a tank top, flip flops and your PS4 (of course) and find yourself a 2/2 condo on Biscayne Blvd. in downtown Miami or in South Beach right off Ocean Drive. The only ice you'll ever have to worry about is the one you'll put in the Mojito you'll be sipping from the comfort of your balcony of your waterfront property overlooking the beach. Only you can make it happen. biggrin.gif

I haven't been online much because, well, when you can rake leaves in a shirt & shorts it's hard to keep the family indoors. Just got back from the family Mickey Mouse trip in Orlando and had to wear a jacket the first day. Florida warm weather aint no joke.

The scenario that happened was in the basement on the C flag in locker and I got shot up pretty bad by a guy in one of the hallways. I hid for cover at 4 health. A teammate of his came out of the other hallway and shot me for the kill. The killcam showed the first guy that got me in a prone position in the doorway at the end of the hallway. No way he could of finished me off from that spot. We know the game gives you the kill for damaging an enemy over a certain amount. I am thinking that maybe thats the killcam we are seeing, for the guy that got the kill and not actually the enemy who put in the finishing shot.

I would of loved to show you video proof and I checked the files but once again the wrong game is being shown. I'm not sure if thats a Dice or Sony issue. I even go as far as previewing the video while in game to make sure its the right one. I cant edit and upload as it will kick me out of the game. Whats happening is it when I go back to upload it shows the 15 min from after I previewed. I plan on testing this out on another game to see if this is a BF4 or Sony issue.

So far in the angst about 1-shot kills I am on Lazy's side. When I get the same type of "BS" kills some people are claiming, I assume I am doing the same to some poor chap on the other team, afterall, it's not like I'm going 5-20. The rubber banding while in a jet is more atrocious than all the other lag stuff IMO, I just think there is more tit-for-tat than some realize.

I subscribe to Lazy's idea that the killcam is showing the player who took the most health points, it clearly and simply explains how I've seen a prone sniper through a building and hill.

Thankfully we are on a console and don't even deal with the hacking and DDOS attacks that PC guys have to withstand.

I have seen it show the wrong thumbnail on the right video but it was indeed the video I meant. I think people are not using the share button correctly?

The double XP weekend was just enough to let me watch some football AND grind out all of my kits. I finished off the assault class and the "bouncy" launcher right at the close of the event. smile.gif aaaaaahhhhh. what a relief.
post #4101 of 7284
Congrats Byte! I still have to grind out my DMRs and get the last two unlocks for the attack chopper. Not to mention assignments to unlock guns.
I played a little today and had 33 kills in the attack jet in conquest. Conquest is still laggy/rubberbanding which probably robbed me of a few kills. I got to 30 kills and someone on their team put active radar missiles on their boat and totally shut me down. Flares didn't help, ECM didn't help, extinguisher didn't help either. Everytime he shot missiles at me I died. Unfortunately my team didn't take advantage of that and destroy his boat since he only had main gun to defend himself. Can't wait to get some games in with avs peeps again. Hopefully dice can fix the lag soon and make their best game mode work like its supposed to.

Does "Ping" show up for you guys in Battlelog? It doesn't seem to work on the app or on PC for me.

I did notice on PC battlelog that if you go into each server it lists it's IP and port. I've been pinging them and found that even North American servers can return anything from 25ms to 500ms. Most are between 100-350 when full. Europe is always towards the higher end. A few tend to be super low it seems. Also noticed there's only "North America" as a region in BL, but you have US-East US-West in game. Not sure whats with that. A whois of the NA IP's return EA's Redmond HQ.

I favorites some full servers in the 25-50ms range (as far as when I was testing goes) and will give them a try to see if latency issues go down. Should also be able to ping them during a match to see if there's any spikes going on.

thanx, I still have a whole bunch of things to unlock, but at least with my kits and a couple of solid guns, I don't feel naked when I leave the LZ.
post #4104 of 7284
Ping doesn't show for me either in battlelog. I remember looking and hoping it would. On PC battle log they also have the option to look for servers in Antarctica. I tried and didn't find anything, I figured the researchers get bored down there but didn't expect to actually give them servers smile.gif

@TyrantII
Too bad favoriting doesn't help, since the servers I favorite are always empty 2 days later.
It is helpful if we are trying to get 10 AVSers into one game.

And it also appears you can only see and join them through PC or game, not the Battlelog app.

Really, who designed this crap?

Does anyone have any recommendations for a docsis 3.0 modem? If so, please PM me. I have Knology aka WOW and have been renting a 2.0 modem through them for a few years and could of bought my own 3.0 modem a long time ago. So I figured I should do it by now smile.gif

Lo would be dead in Wisconsin right now. We are at a brisk -6 degrees today. This is a heatwave compared to the -12 from yesterday.
post #4110 of 7284
This cold sucks, but not as much as the $400 electric bill I got... might be moving soon and I don't think I can get high speed where I will be going...
