I hear about, that the 331.54 driver seems to be more stable for playing BF4.

My Girlfriend plays with the 331.65 driver and got Direct X crashes too.

Myself is playing on Laptop with an very old 302.77 Mod driver and it is stable (But slow).

At the Moment I got no other choice because of Upgrading my VGA and found no VBios that fits.

But stable. Maybe ist worth a try.

Funny you should mention this. I found that fix on my own a while ago when I attempted to force Shadowplay to work on an Optimus laptop (greatly failed).

Video provides proof and what steps I took to do it.

As for the general consensus about the game, its decent, not great or groundbreaking. Same as BF3 IMO and will not be as awesome as BF2142.

I did get BF4 for free however due to an EA insider working on the Origin client. The Premium service I had to pay for since its not part of Origin itself, but a DICE service (not EA). So I guess I got the cheaper end of the deal overall.

The 675m will be able to play BF4 on High settings at around 50+ FPS. According to notebookcheck.com, the 675m and 765m are very similar (with the 765m being slightly slower). I have an Alienware 14 with the 765m and can play BF4 just fine on high.

After painfully realizing that DiCE/EA will never fix this game and keep releasing one shitty DLC after the next, I've grown tired of the game and moved on. Lately I find myself enjoying SP games more than a lot of the MP ones out there. Anyone else feel the same way?

Same here. No longer a fan of the bigger series (CoD / BF / etc). I play Warframe solo or with irl friend but that's about it. Started going back to play SP games again. Had a lot of fun messing around in Saints Row 3 the last couple days.

That... or building more of my custom flashlights @@! (<- actual picture of eyes when done)

Haha too funny, EA tried their best to market this turd to console gamers and in turn pissed off many PC fans by shipping a half baked product and in the end it doesn't look like it panned out too well for them. These are the black friday game sales:

I don't see BF4 anywhere on that list. Eat a dick EA/DICE.

I had a chance to buy it on sale for less than $30 and decided to pass. I will wait for it to drop to $10-15 and after it's patched I might buy it if it is not such a piece of crap.

Yes, I also agree with your earlier comment. SP games FTW... online multi-player has never been something I enjoy, but especially not when it's crappy. LAN with friends is fun, but that's the only kind of MP games I enjoy much.

Bought battlefield 4 for $20 on black friday, nice game however the campaign is short and not worth playing, in addition they need to iron out a few bugs for pc.

Gotta say, I had such high hopes for this game, I'll pick it up and play for a few every once and a while, but the bugs, and mediocre game play keep me from getting into it

I read that DICE stopped developpement of next DLCs to get more employees working on bug correction.

Let's hope it's true ;)

I have now over 50 hours of game time, the game is enjoyable but still has the same flaws as bf3, and introduced even new ones, weapons have really low recoil and are a lot easier to learn, you get killed a lot easier by less skilled players. And the level design is even worst, lockdown is the worst multiplayer map ever made for 64 players.

bf4 crash on my pc a lot of times, it's an exemple of unfinished game. They rushed the developpement to release it faster. i have a lot of fps drop in multiplayer and i think it's not the most beautiful game. According to me, Arma 3 is more beautiful than bf4.

More specifically, they've also had their dev team pause production on any DLC until the current bugs are ironed out. Which is a nice surprise lol

WHile this game has many issues it is still very fun to play. It hasn't been crashing on me much lately if at all. THe odd glitches are noticeable but as long as it is crash free i love it. Dice really needs to get it straight, but do not let these issues keep you from buying it on sale. It is worth it. It also runs very well now even on weak systems. i have the y510p and even with SLI disabled (running on one gt 750m oc +135 core and +400mhz memory) i can run it on medium settings @1080p with post processing at medium and ssao on. I get a solid 40+ fps at these settings. With sli enabled i get 60+ and can easily run it on high still getting in the 50 fps range. the anti-aliasing is what kills these cards since they only have 128bit memory bus.

If you get the DX error it appears to be related to the gpu overheating. I have had the issue as well but once I made sure I was getting better cooling the DX errors went away and I haven't had them since :)

Install it: Battlefield 4/Installer/Redist/DXSETUP and test my config (user.cfg). Helped me for more FPS +12/15 FPS and no more crashes maybe this will help you.

I just downloaded it the other day and I get anywhere from 40-60 FPS (Usually stays around 55 or so) on high on my Lenovo Y510p with the SLI config. When my CM Storm SF-19 comes in, I plan on overclocking it if it is worthwhile (If I see a noticeable change in the FPS) and it stays cool.

The only problem I have with running this game on high is that it cooks my graphics cards! They like to float anywhere from 85-95 degrees Celsius. I'm hoping the cooler will help keep them more like 80 degrees Celcius, but is there anything I can do to help keep my laptop cool? I have it on a 4 20 oz pop caps, one on each corner, to help elevate it a little until my cooler comes in.

The only issues I've been having with BF4 are mainly online issues with getting into servers, and being randomly kicked. Other than that the game itself runs fine. I do have some FPS drops but I'm running on ULTRA on 2 GTX 680's so I can see how that can sometimes happen.

      Hey guys whats going on? I have an M17X R3, been running the 780M perfectly fine for about 7 months now. I've updated the driver once before, but it seems I'm having problems with all of the latest releases. Whats happening is when I download the latest driver, I run the setup so the 398.36 folder gets saved on my computer. Well thats what is NOT happening. Every time I run it, I see the folder pop up, but once the Nvidia downloader fails (as it should), the 398.36 folder disappears! I cant figure out how to make it stay there permanent! I've disabled driver signing and everything. Any suggestions?

      Clevo W25xHNx Latest BIOS, Firmware & Windows 10 Drivers
       
      Note: This thread is no longer updated. You can find the latest info HERE.

      This is a collection of all drivers & firmware updates I have found and tested to be working properly on my W251HNQ laptop, part of Clevo's W25xHNx lineup.

      Notice: The Clevo W25xHNx series include a variety or specific configurations. Not all W25xHNx laptops have the same hardware when it comes to USB 3.0, 3G Modem, Wireless/Bluetooth card etc. Check your specific model and update accordingly. The BIOS/EC & Intel ME Firmware are universal. Also, Nvidia GT 540M drivers must be downloaded from the nvidia website as they are still actively updated.

      Note: To extract some of the files below you need to use programs which support RAR5 compression!

      Firmware

      BIOS v1.01.07 & EC v1.00.06 Mod/Stock

      Click the link above and you'll be taken to my Clevo W2xxHNx/W2xxHPx BIOS Mod thread in which you can find an updated BIOS for W25xHNx series as well other similar models. I have personally tested it and recommend to apply it. For those that don't want the Mod, the Stock BIOS is also included.

      Renesas uPD720200a v4.0.2.1-0.3

      This is the latest firmware for the Renesas uPD720200a USB 3.0 controller. Use the included utilities (x86 or x64) to update in an easy way.

      Note: You can run "Check Firmware Version.bat" file as administrator to check your current firmware version & operating system architecture.

      Intel Management Engine v7.1.x.xxxx Consumer (1.5MB)

      The latest ME 7 1.5MB (Consumer) firmware can be found at the above linked thread of mine. After flashing the latest BIOS & EC you can update to the latest Intel ME firmware via Windows or DOS. If you use my Modded BIOS, the latest ME firmware will be updated alongside automatically.

      Drivers (Windows 10 x64)

      TouchPad: ELAN SmartPad v15.10.5.2

      This is the same driver that Windows 10 installs by default as well, including sliding gestures and ELAN/Windows control panels. Other drivers may not work properly by not including gestures or any setting alteration via control panels.

      Warning: Do not install the old stock Clevo ELAN driver under Windows 10. It will corrupt the Upper and Lower registry Filters of mouse & keyboard which means all keyboard and mouse devices cannot be used unless fixed.

      Intel Management Engine Interface: INF or MEI-Only Installer

      Visit the link above to go to my ME thread & download the latest Intel Management Engine Interface driver which supports 6-series systems.

      Intel Rapid Storage Technology: Intel RST AHCI v12.9.4.1000

      This is the latest Intel RST driver that is compatible with 6-series systems. It works perfectly under Windows 10 and offers the best AHCI performance.

      Note: Only the AHCI driver is included. The HM65 chipset does not support RAID so it's not needed and the Intel Management Console application does not provide any benefits/options in AHCI mode.

      SD Card: JMicron JMB38X v1.00.76.01

      The latest JMicron SD Card driver with official Windows 8 support. It works perfectly under Windows 10.

      Ethernet: JMicron JMC251 v6.2.34.25

      The latest JMicron LAN driver with official Windows 8 support. It works perfectly under Windows 10.

      Audio: Realtek HD Audio ALC269 v6.0.1.6971

      This is not the latest Realtek HD Audio driver but works perfectly under Windows 10. It includes the Realtek HD Audio Manager and cooperates with Creative's THX TruStudio Pro v1.04.12. Newer drivers may not work properly by not including Audio Manager or not working with TruStudio Pro.

      Software (Windows 10 x64)

      Camera: ChiconyCam v1.0.56.614

      The latest ChiconyCam application I could find. It works fine for taking pictures and recording video. Contrary to what Clevo offers, it allows video recording at 1280x1024 and doesn't reset to 640x480 or similar.

      THX: Creative THX TruStudio Pro v1.04.12 + W25xHNx EQ

      The last TruStudio version from Creative with official Windows 8 support. It works perfectly under Windows 10 and settings can be tweaked from both TruStudio and Realtek HD Audio Manager. Of course, you should use TruStudio for more options & output profiles. Bundled with the setup is the Clevo W25xHNx EQ configuration which allows you to select between all available output options inside the program (External Speakers, Headphones & Built-in Speakers). It's extremely important to use the appropriate OEM EQ file otherwise the wrong profiles will be shown or chosen while playing audio.

      Warning: Not all Realtek drivers work with TruStudio and vice versa. I have personally tested that Realtek HD Audio v6.0.1.6971 driver works perfectly with TruStudio Pro v1.04.12 under Windows 10. Newer Realtek drivers may or may not work.

      Frequently Asked Questions

      What about Realtek RTL8188CE & Motorola Bluetooth?

      For the Realtek wireless card, you can install the latest driver from Realtek's website but keep in mind that there are a lot newer versions around the web. For the bundled Motorola bluetooth, use the stock Windows 10 drivers. Do not install the "latest" Motorola drivers which can be found around the web. They have not been updated since Windows 7 and do not work on anything higher. Personally, I replaced that combo card with an Intel Wireless-N 7260 with Bluetooth 4.0 which receives regular updates from Intel and provides proper and a lot faster WiFi & Bluetooth functionality.
       
      What about Fn-Key Legend: Hotkey?

      Do not install any version of this utility on anything higher than Windows 7. It's EC dependent and there is no version that can work on newer operating systems without causing major problems. Besides, it's useless as Windows 10 includes most of its functionality by default.

      How can I disable the Alarm Beep when battery is low?

      There are two settings you need to configure, a BIOS and a Windows one. First go into BIOS > Advanced and set Low Battery Alarm Beep to Disabled. Then, boot into Windows, go to Control Panel > Hardware and Sound > Sound. Double-click Speakers > Levels tab and make sure PC Beep is at 0% and Muted. The BIOS setting disables the alarm that occurs the last 30 minutes of the battery and the Windows setting prevents the last 5 minutes beeping which is enforced despite the main BIOS setting.

      Being an Audiophile i had to get all the functions up and running for my Almost new R4
       
      How to get updated driver.. and Thx control panel to work under windows 10 64 bit (who has 32 installed on an R4 anyways)
       
      I have DDU disabled always, Windows 10 in Test mode.
       
      Do this after all the other drivers/apps are updated, NVIDIA, Visual C etc.
       
      Fix:
       
      1.:ownload the latest driver for the Recon 3Di chip itself. This specific driver package is for a later revision that has another firmware on the effect side so the Control Panel does not work.
      But we are not after that here, we need the latest driver so it will work optimally in W10.
      http://www.dell.com/support/home/no/no/nobsdt1/Drivers/DriversDetails?driverId=D6NF4
       
      2.: Thx Control panel:
      Download the standard Audio driver package M17x R4 / M18x R2
      https://downloads.dell.com/FOLDER00384156M/2/Audio_Creative_W74_5NJ7K_A01-Setup_ZPE.exe
       
      3.: Right click the exe file and extract the contects to a random folder.
      Go to Program files\Creative\Sound Blaster Recon3Di\Sound Blaster Recon3Di Control Panel
      Copy the contents of this folder over to Program Filesx86\Creative
      Make a shortcut to the desktop. Run it, and you have control over all settings  
       
      (optional) Delete the Newer Recon 3Di control panel folder if you installed that with the newer package that does not recognise the older Chip.

      Hello guys!
      So my setup works finally, but with on major flaw: whenever I want to get into "gaming mode" - meaning using the eGPU, my only working solution and method is 100% working, however takes ages -
      Without egpu, boot to windows, uninstall all nVidia drivers
      Reboot to macOS, turn on egpu, wait around 10 sec, plug it in, run the automate-egpu.sh script, then again in -a mode
      turn off mac, shutdown egpu, wait until there's no green light, unplug.
      plug the thunderbolt cable back in, boot to windows without egpu connected, open device manager, turn on egpu, after 10 sec hotplug, see it gets recognized, re-install drivers.
      turn off mac, shutdown egpu, wait until there's no green light, unplug.
      plug in the egpu, boot to boot selection, after the cursor is move-able, power on the egpu, boot to windows (if it would freeze w/ black screen or infinite spinning wheel, force shutdown and do step 6. again)
      after getting to Windows, voila, it's alive.
      Additional 8th step - whenever I turn off my laptop, I have to re-do everything. +1 : I always use the closest thunderbolt port to the magsafe port.
      So the question is, did anyone found out a way of booting 100% succesfully without having to reinstall the geforce driver all the time? I mean since my macbook is the most problematic one, even I have a gtx 10x0 series, I should be happy of this method working at least, I'd still love to fasten up the process.
      ps.: I'm thinking about a solution, what would somehow reset all the caches/temp files of the driver itself when shutting down everything, if there would be a way for doing that, I would try it right away, and post an update. Would it help at all, or should I just keep reinstalling everytime?
      Thanks,
      Samu
