    Wow. Patch is 2.5 GB. Now that is one helluva a patch. Looks like it's going to be pretty rad, though, and I'm never somebody to pass up free content. If they're good enough, I might even be convinced to pick up the Vietnam pack despite Dice's incredible bungling of getting the game decently patched.

    It took them long enough, but they did finally come through on the updates. If they had abandoned BC2, I would be far less inclined to buy 'Nam

    True. The list of "could've been great if they had patched it" games is pretty long so it's nice to see a company keep at it instead of dropping the consumers like a hot potato at the first opportunity. It really is the sort of thing to keep me interested enough to consider buying the imminent expansion pack and hopefully an eventual sequel.

    DICE has generally had a pretty good track record with long-term support of their products. They patched both BF2 and 2142 two years after their respective releases.

    Of course part of that is that DICE takes forever to patch, but I suppose better late than never ;-)

    Before Prototype for PC is even released, Radical/Activision state it is a final version and they will not support it.

    Game is released, looks like ass on ATI cards, it will never be addressed.

    The game-looks-like-it-was-made-in-2002 kind of bad. :(


    On Nvidia

    On ATI
    prototypeati.jpg

    Also some effects wouldn't show up on ATI, but the lack of lighting was the most noticeable problem. The official forums had a lot of people complaining about this, also on the AMD forums. No developer addressed it ever.

    So I'm really glad they still support BC2, I what I'm saying :)

    I shot down at least 12 choppers in one round on Atacama this afternoon with the AT4. It's the first time I've ever had it in the "most score by" section of the end-of-round page. 20 kills. 84% accuracy. I don't even fire the thing at naked infantry.

    I am going to have a field day on heavy metal.

    You all had better be on tonight. I plan on getting on within the next couple of hours. Someone already accused Goomba of hacking while using the m14 with ACOG, so I am thinking tonight will be extra lulzy. If we can go an entire night without a pubbie accusing someone of hacking, I will surprised.

    I didn't even bother uninstalling i just re-downloaded from here: http://www.evenbalance.com/index.php?page=pbsetup.php then added BC2 to the game list and ran the update that resolved the error I was receiving.

    Whatever problems I was having in BC2 resolved themselves before I joined the PA server. Only weird thing is that my PA clantag disappeared and my loading times are a lot longer.

    Great news everyone. Our glorious host posted in their forums that they will be providing a Vietnam server to everyone who has a BC2 server. This is great news for us!

    [QUOTE=|MyIS|Jake

    If you have a BC2 server with us we will allow you to run Viet, no charge of any kind.
    As far as mixed modes I have my doubts. It's more likely it will be either one or the other running.
    Worst case it may be a different install/build that would then not make it possible to switch between the 2.
    They are being very secrative about Viet. We have no info at all. [/QUOTE]
