Dual core BF2/BF2142 Fix!

This thread pertains to those who are running an AMD 64 dual core processor.

Some of those who have been playing BF2/BF2142 at this weekends pax may have experienced the unrelenting suck that is being constantly disconnected from the servers for no apparent reason.

While I was revelling in my not-able-to-freaking-play-ocity I came across alot of interesting posts on both EA's forums, and the ASUS/nVidia/AMD forums regarding an ongoing problem with lazy EA programmers, and dual core memory management.

For those of you still infected with the not playing, who are running an AMD Athlon X2 dual core system, drop into the AMD site and grab the update to your processor drivers!

To my unrelenting joy my system managed to un-suck for Saturday night about 1am, and I proceeded to get my ass reamed for the rest of saturday's BYOC play, and most of Sunday until the bad man took my T-Bird away and I went home.

Below is the link to the drivers page on the AMD site, I hope this ends up being moderately helpful :D

    Will it boost performance in any other games? All I play on this thing is Halo PC, BF2 and Source engine stuff.

    One of the things noted was that they addressed alot of programming geared towards single core processor sets to improve game performance.

    I heartily endorse this thread.

    Even though it was about a year ago when I found this little fix, I was getting pissed at BF2 constantly crashing on my lovely new PC. Once I ran that little fix though I've never had a problem since. I don't know how much it's effecting other games, but I've never had any hardware problems running any game.
