    I think it's all versions of battlefield. Just a ton of instability; last I heard the big "level changing" moments like the skyscraper collapsing were crashing servers.

    Conquest works in BF4 now. It's still crashing every few rounds but hey, you can't have everything.

    Something's fucked up and I can't get into BF3 anymore, so that's the end of that, I guess.

    Really, really nice

    I watch everything with subtitles as is, but there's the odd few DVDs in my collection that don't have English subtitles for some reason

    really? how come?

    Me personally? It's because I have three kids.

    **sound of leather whips cracking**

    I do not whip my kids.

    I throw bricks at them.

    Oh man, I think Marty's mate had that same drama but I can't remember how he fixed it. You should ask him what he did

  • chrishallett83chrishallett83 Amazon: shorturl.at/giJSV Steam: shorturl.at/ftCLSRegistered User regular
    "RESTRICTION: Service Communication Failure: PnkBstrA.exe"

    Which is funny, because BF3 and punkbuster are both fully up-to-date and installed correctly, and not reporting any problems except for when I try to join a multiplayer server.

    Oh well. I'm not going to spend hours fucking around with this, seeing as most servers are breen wastelands now anyway, and I have a huge backlog I'm trying to catch up on a bit.

  • TefTef Registered User regular
    Good old punk buster.

    Yes in fact I'm sure that's exactly the problem Marty's mate had

    I ran into that. As I recall, the fix was to completely delete PunkBuster and re-install it. The "completely delete" part is harder than it sounds, though.

    Hidden in the FAQ section on the punkbuster website there is a tool to let you repair/uninstall your installation. I downloaded the tool and ran it, and despite the tool saying that neither PunkbusterA or PunkbusterB were working and also doing nothing about that, now the game runs fine.

    Can't find the tool or Punkbuster to completely uninstall either of them, though. I may have to low-level format my SSD and do a full re-install when I get sick of BF3 to be sure I'm rid of them both.

    Thanks, punkbuster, for fucking up battlefield since 1942

    Oh no it works again. It's just annoying, and also we're putting an awful lot of trust in these Evenbalance folks. Fuckin' root level access to my shit, wut?

    I'm still not going to buy either console for at least three months (probably more)

    But man.

    Unless this install time on xbox gets fixed, it's hard to justify picking one up.

    We already had several people checking in to see if PS4s are going to be available on launch (they're not), hoo boy tomorrow is going to be a mixture of "Woo, Money!" and telling people they have to wait until next year.

    - Fixed a bug where the Moon was upside down.
    - Fixed a weird door.

    It's going to be $29.99 at several retailers in the US. I know Gamestop and Walmart are two of the places.

    I get that the PS4 has crazy fast installs but

    I don't think 10 minutes is all that bad?

    so I got my PS4, but Bob EBGames was all "yo dogg Lego Marvel ain't out till the 4th here sorry"

    go home, set it up, get Lego Marvel from the PSN store, download it overnight, cancelling my pre-order tomorrow

    I think I can get used to this all digital future

    Man yes it is.

    This is a console.

    I want to put the disc in and play the darn thing.

    Not put the disc in and piss around for fifteen minutes.

    I've basically always installed all of my xbox 360 games so those times still seem wicked fast to me.

    Maybe it's just because the games are actually still installing, but the disc drive seems a bit on the loud side

    Also I'm kinda irritated that I can't seem to figure out how to check if the game is actually done installing or not or how to patch the games

    My favourite thing about the new console is definitely the updating itself from sleep mode.

    It'd shit me off when I hadn't used my PS3 for a couple of weeks, so when I fired it up I'd have to update the firmware, then I pop the disc in and the game wants an update, so I'd do that, play for a couple of hours and then want to watch a BluRay and it'd ask me to update the player software...

    We are going to go ahead and look for one, since we already have the money saved, and I think I would enjoy Black Flag and Battlefield 4 looks fun.

    I held the ps4 controller today. It feels a lot like that one mad katz controller I had for my ps2 back in the day, with the larger handles, except the ps4 controller doesn't feel like it is made out of the cheapest plastic imaginable. What I am saying is "the ps4 controller felt good in my hands."

    I held a PS4 controller recently too, I agree that the plastic felt good and the sticks/grips were better, but I wasn't instantly sold on the triggers, even if they are an improvement.

    - Fixed a bug where the Moon was upside down.
    - Fixed a weird door.
