Yeah, I loved BF3 (though I bought it a while after it got released, so I never dealt with any bugs). Played the Beta, it was laggy as hell, but I liked the textures and the gameplay. Bought it on preorder. First couple of weeks I didn't play it since everytime I joined a server it crashed after 1 min.

Since December, I had very minor issues. I enjoy a lot the game. BU, I didn't buy anything from EA, they're too expensive. I suggest to any of you to go on g2a.com. If you search BF4 Premium (all DLCs and features), you'll see they have it for less than 60 EUR.

Loving Naval Strike at the moment as I was a huge fan of BF2142! Some people must be new to this mode as people don't tend to defend!

I've never enjoyed BF multiplayer, but I always buy the games for just the campaign.

Has anyone noticed any significant performance increases with the nvidia 337.5 driver?

I want a bigger and totally awesome remake of Heavy Metal from BFBC2. That would be a great map for BF4. I agree with some about it just being BF3.5...but when this game is polished, it will much better. The one thing that kills me is having to muck with graphics settings every time a new map pack comes out because things were rushed and the new maps are more taxing. Not to mention peaks in the CR map pack. That's so nub to throw in a map with so much mesh that it can bring two titans down.

It takes about two weeks before a new map pack has lost it's appeal...glad my mate introduced me to arma 3 and creating our own maps.

For me the BFBC:2 was never beaten by the latter titles. It just felt more coherent and balanced. I can't wait for the third incarnation.

After logging a significant amount of hours in this game I would say that I enjoy it.

HOWEVER the 10Hz tickrate is stupidly slow and ruining the game for it's players.

while it's supposedly being increased to 30hz(which is still slow imo) the game is already too far gone for a majority of users,

it's an unfinished product THAT SHOULD NOT HAVE BEEN RELEASED.

That said if you join in with a bunch of friends it can be a very enjoyable experience, IF IT DIDN'T FUCKING BALANCE YOU AWAY FROM YOUR SQUAD.

They say that squad join doesn't appeal to the PC players, which leads me to believe that they don't even browse the forums, a feature that was in BFBC2, a much older game, should have been implemented from the start FOR ALL USERS.

I do love the game, but it definitely has it's problems.

Here's a good thread on reddit with a DICE employee's reply regarding the tick rate: While The 10hz Tick Rate Remains "Net Code" will NEVER Improve. Let's Pressure DICE to Fix This! : battlefield_4 Basically EA has done this to stave off costs for server hardware. Since they want to bleed the Battlefield series with microtransactions aka DLC's, they don't release server side files to the general public anymore and have made the Battlefield series a walled off garden.

This is why people need to start boycotting the entire franchise and lend support instead to the ARMA series which is still PC to the core.

ARMA is more of a simulation than what battlefield is, and battlefield doesn't try to be like ARMA, they're different games just like CoD and CF are different games. I do agree however that DICE/EA have been greedy money hungry bastards lately :/

The DLC mainly comes from EA, DICE didn't even offer most of their Battlefield 4 DLC (grenades, shotguns, pistols, dmrs, etc) until a few months after Battlefield 4 was released. I recently got an update for Titanfall and there wasn't any noticeable changes except an option to purchase DLC in-game.

The shortcut packs aren't really "DLC" as they're already part of the base game, I believe he meant the map packs.

ARMA 3 gun play is very similar to BF4, I go back and forth between them daily without issue. ARMA may have started out as a wannabe simulator but it's moving more and more towards being an arcade like game like the Battlefield series. Except unlike Battlefield, it has a shit ton of awesome mods and mission files (e.g. Altis life) that blow away Battlefield.

But yeah I didn't even take into consideration their shortcut packs which are just another way to fleece customer's who don't want to deal with hours and hours of unlocking weapons.

This is what makes ARMA 3 so much better than BF4, the amount of things you can do with the game. It offers far far more value for the dollar than BF series ever could. In the beginning of the video I'm playing a mod called King of the Hill and after that the other videos are from Altis Life which is a mission file for ARMA 3--basically an RPG with cops/robbers/gangs that is fully persistent.

I feel like the quality of the builds and actual game play has always been better on BF than Arma. The only way that Arma ever trumps BF is with mods (although I must admit this is a good area to trump in :) )

ARMA is the most realistic game I've played in a war game sense, both Battlefield and COD are both arcade rather than simulation though.

i'll have to get into arma3 more.

saw some frankie youtubes that looked insanely fun, but when i actually played the game, it was incredibly slow and boring.

must be doing it wrong.

For a casual and all-out-fun game, BF4 with friends is awesome. If you want something a tad more serious and have patience, ARMA3 can be very rewarding.

I love Wasteland on A3. I played it on Stratis during the BETA and still go back to that map. King of the Hill is also fun but can rape the FPS of any serious rig.

BF4 - as of writing this - is a beast of a game. The latest patch has brought some really cool ideas from CTE. The frustration has been that it has taken 12+ months to get there. And now they want to shove Hardline down our throats - which is simply a reskin of BF4 - no thanks!

With other disasters, like SimCity, I have fallen out of love with EA. I have small regard for DICE now also.

Saying all of this, SRAW'ing an annoying Little Bird from half way across the map is still fun!

And finally, BC2 > BF3 > BF4. I loved the Gustav!

Just installed BF4 again, now that my brother has a working GPU. BF4 was a nightmare with HD6900 series, it would randomly just crash. Problems weren't temperature related. Just random crashing and glitching. Can't wait to try it out again. I wonder if there many servers to choose from, since neither of us have any of the DLC.

I heard they upped the tickrate from 10 to 30hz, I found the game painful to play back at release, but now that there is a chance that my bullets will hit where I want them, I will give bf4 a second chance.

      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
