How to increase FPS in BFBC2 Beta
After knocking my head against the wall with my 25 FPS I have found a few things that help with this beta.
This game is demanding for sure and the average COD player is having quite a time trying to adjust to it's gameplay. So lets give them all the FPS help they need.After all this is a great squad game despite the things it does not offer to many in the gaming community. I went from 25 FPS to 65 to 70 FPS
Intel xtreme 6800 OCed @ 3.2ghz
Nvidia 260 GTX
4 gig ram
XP 32 bit
Downloading Liseda's BFBC2 Configurator
will allow XP users to get out of the locked down antialias (1x) and give you settings that change as compared to all the locked settings that I
am experiencing in the GUI. Download here http://ohlawl.com/liseda.html
Next try changing the command line in your shortcut by adding +fullproc
at the end. It should look like this. People are claiming that the beta is not taking advantage of the second core in a dual core processor.
It should look like this. Make sure you do this with a new shortcut."C:\Program Files\Electronic Arts\Battlefield Bad Company 2 - BETA\BFBC2Game.exe" +fullproc
Switch Virtual Memory (pagefile) to second drive IE a drive that the game is not executing from.There is much debate as to whether this helps with FPS and or the cpu load.I can only say I increased my FPS by 5 to 7 FPS while watching the map at an exact location in an empty server.You can't hurt anything by doing this.I will say for sure that my entire Windows experience is a lot faster after making this change.
If you have any other knowledge please post it here in this thread.And lets keep our fingers crossed that EA/Dice will continue to work out the bugs and this game will be playable in a crisp way for more than just a portion of the gaming community.
