And all you have to do is plug in the 360 controller to your PC. You can get drivers here.
Microsoft's made it very easy to use the 360 controller on PC, and it's what many of us use. I don't use it in BF3 to fly though, but that's because I find switching from keyboard to controller sort of awkward. I do
use the mic input on it for voice chat.
I think with my monitor being a 144Hz monitor that HDMI won't work maybe? Or rather anything over 60Hz might require DVI. IDK. I've just been using DVI for my monitor, but I assume HDMI would work fine for my Plasma TV, which I haven't tried yet. I'll put this up for a little bit of a reference...http://forums.evga.com/FindPost/2037919
I'm all preloaded ready to go! Just need Premium I guess.
I have been just been using my 360 controller for piloting the heli's only. It's awkward going back and forth. If anyone has any suggestions for a flight stick, I will probably look into those at some point, just to see what's out there even if I decide not to get one.
One thing I am confused about is how to do the chat thing. I just don't know what I need to do to chat in BF3 that is. But for Bf4 is this going to be different? I remember hearing people talk in the Beta, so they will have chat built into the game?
Someone over at Overclock.net put a link for a download for the Nvidia drivers 331.65 I think it is. I believe this driver allows ShadowPlay. I haven't downloaded it yet. With me being new to pc's, I didn't know if there would a chance of getting any type harmful thing by downloading something from a stranger like that. IDK what do you guys think?http://www.overclock.net/t/1403553/nvidia-shadowplay-discussion-thread-beta-starts-october-28/350_50#post_21067615
With BF4 coming out I had thought it might be detrimental for me to dive to deep into pc play with Bf3's guns here the last couple of weeks. I was mainly concentrating on vehicles. But I couldn't stop myself from doing some gunplay, and frankly I am glad I did.
I've racked up over 2000 kills now, and often I can finish pretty high up on the board in all types of matches.
It's been awkward using a k/b mouse setup, and it still is at times, but I have been getting better.
But I had probably the most epic game on Metro the other day IMO. And I think it was the match that put me up over 100k kills total for BF3.
It was a standard 100% ticket round, in a mixed map Conquest server. I think I initially ran in with my Assault Class from the RU outside spawn , but once we took B, I decided to go straight at the enemy with the Support Class and my newly acquired M240B lmg. The most epic part really was at the side stairs. Their team had a pretty good push and were all over the side stairs. I threw a couple of grenades and charged out of the locker room onto them. Felt like I single handily just killed everyone on the stairs and pushed them back to C flag damn near. And I didn't die when I made that side stairs push. That was the most epic part. Felt like I mowed down 10 guys all at once. I really have no idea, it was chaos. For that round I went 46-4 and got the most kills for the match. I was killing everything I shot at. I would have had more, but I tracked down a couple guys that escaped through, and was away from the action for a while doing that each time, on my own / my team had not clue, btw. But between 98,000 kills in BF3 on console and 2,000 on PC, that was probably the best round of standard 100% tickets of Conquest on Metro I have had to date. So I was and still am pretty happy about it. It was like I couldn't miss. I was afraid people were going to accuse me of cheating or something...http://battlelog.battlefield.com/bf3/battlereport/show/1/71037383/362598461/
I still have very bad games. But most games, I'm fairly satisfied with my performance.
I don't think I have added any of you guys. Send me a friend request or something...http://battlelog.battlefield.com/bf3/user/mphfrom77/Edited by mphfrom77 - 10/27/13 at 1:48am
