2. Performance isnít that bad, not great, but not terrible. Graphics settings donít seem to make a lot of difference, with the exception of viewing distance, which slows things a at max for some maps. The pacific levels, however, dip to slideshow territory. Must be all the water. I prefer the desert maps anyway!
i'm running the same mhz comp as you, but i do fine on water levels... infact they're rather smooth. Performance offline is good, but wait till u go online.
Hopefully performance improves - no AI to run. Please say yes?! :-?
3. Sound is buggy. I keep losing effects here and there, e.g. no reload sounds, engines go, footsteps come and go. Maybe itís lack of CPU again, but strangely the sounds in Desert Combat seem to work OK.
check what sound quality you're running. if you bump up the quality of sound, your performance may go down quite a bit.
I've got the sound on the lowest settings, so I guess I'll have to live with it.
...there seems to be a problem with the ground textures, and sometimes the tank textures. When I'm walking around the ground tends to flash between the normal texture and black polygons at seemingly random times.
This happens sometimes if I move my mouse too fast. Basically the Vid card doesn't have time to render everything going on.
Also, in one of the allied tanks (don't know which one, it has a rifle pivot up top for a 2nd player, and a 1st player cannon that only rotates probably 15 degrees left or right from dead straight view) if you swivel the cannon all the way to the left, a large black polygon starts flashing on the left side of the tank view (this is from the inside of the tank view) completely blocking the tank texture, and partly obscuring the actual view. If there is a way to take a screenshot in BF:1942, I'll try and get one tonight or tomorrow to demonstrate my point. I guess I should try and turn the texture quality down a notch as well, and see if that fixes it. Oh, this was on 10.3.4, but it also happens in 10.3.5.
You mean like this?
Weird, isn't it, and a tad annoying. Graphics settings don't make any difference. Press F13 for a screenshot.
Just one question. Why is the game called "Battlefield 1942" when it covers everything from the Battle of Britain (1940), to the fall of Berlin (1945)? Why the "1942", specifically?
