Battlefield 3 – Game Optimization Settings – FPS Tweaks

How to squeeze out a few more FPS in Battlefield 3?
BF3 System requirements posted for the PC game here.

BF3 Target “Frames Per Second” = 60 Minimum Average
A higher frame rate produces smoother graphics. A low frame rate will appear laggy, chuggy, slow, choppy and can make a game unplayable as ingame actions take far too long to complete with far too few frames. Anything over 40 fps in Battlefield 3 I suppose is playable. FPS below 35 or will not run well. Maintaining an average 60 FPS is your goal for smooth game play. The other big factor in the quality of your game play, with any on line game is your internet connection.
And why “60 FPS” minimum for BF3?
To counter any low “dips” in FPS on high action areas and certain maps. Caspian Border for example.
Choppy, laggy game play with low FPS is not going help matters with BF3’s poor hit detection, your aim. Especially if your enemy is running at a very high FPS, very smooth game play. You might be struggling with choppy, laggy game play, YOU might see the enemy zipping or “teleporting” across the screen but he is not, he has a direct clean shot at you, for example.
How To Show FPS In BF3:
– Open the game console by hitting the “~” key (tilde, next #1 key)
– Type: render.drawfps 1
– Type: render.drawfps 0 (to turn Off)

Battlefield 3 Countdown – Time To Make Some Friends

Battlefield 3

Battlefield 3

With Battlefield 3 countdown 10-25-11 release around the corner, time to meet new people & join a few games together.
From what I can gather, Battlefield 3 PC Game release is 10-25-11, 00:00 (Pacific), which is 3:00am (Eastern Time)

I pre ordered through Origin, pre load download & install began 10-21-11. I received my email download link Friday 10-21-11, was a 11.6 GB download which downloaded and installed in 1.5 hour on my connection. Fastest 11 GB I have ever downloaded! They are using a date & time on line date server/checker, so the game will not run even in single player until 10-25-11,, FYI.

I am an experienced “noob”, easy to spot, I’m the one getting blown to pieces most of the time. I’m the one that has my sites on you, right in front of me, I empty my mag and your still standing, as I’m trying to get cover and reload or switch weapons, you squeeze off one round and I am waiting to re-spawn. I’m the one getting revived by the medic 20 times a match. I’m the bullet magnet on the Battlefield. Yes that is me….. LOL.

Trying to learn and get better, so if your in the same “boat” as me, reply below with your Origin ID, and add mine below and we’ll see try to get together. I can’t be the only “noob” out there, then again sometimes I feel like it.

I played the Battlefield 3 Beta, did not do to bad the first 2 days, but the 1 map was new to all. By the 3rd day the experience players ranked up, with weapon unlocks and were familiar with the map, and it went down hill for me again. Part of the problem is need to get use to the new gaming mouse I picked up last week – Cyborg R.A.T. 7 mouse. Awesome mouse by the way, still tweaking the DPI and sensitivity settings, that is most of the problem right now.

Battlefield 3 Open Beta Test – BF3 PC Specifications & Gameplay

Just downloaded and did a quick run on Battlefield 3 Open Beta Test. Multiplayer on line play only.
Quick post here on how my system ran the BF3 beta test, so you can compare maybe to your system.

Computer Specifications:
– AMD Phenom II X4 Quad Core 955 Black Edition 3.2 Ghz (Stock)
– Cooler Master Hyper 212+ DC Heatsink, Dual 120mm Fans
– ASUS Matrix Geforce GTX 560 (Fermi) 1 GB DDR5 Ram (Stock)
– ASUS M5A97 EVO AMD Motherboard
– 8 GB G. Skill Ripjaws X Series DDR3 1333 Memory
– Cooler Master CM690 Case

Everything above at stock speeds, not overclocked:
– Fraps reported 68-75 FPS, dropped maybe to 56 during extensive play and graphics.
– The Geforce GTX 560 Video Card ran at 64 celsius maximum.
– Stock quad core speed of 3.2 Ghz max’d out at 46 celsius. Ambient room temp of 77 F.
(Stock vcore 1.350, using a Cooler Master Hyper 212+ DC Dual 120mm Fan Heatsink)

Overall game play was very smooth, computer did not lag at all, and graphics were great!
Sound was awesome to! I was not using headphones, and the bullet sounds wizzzzing past my head forced me to drop, and turn REAL quick! Graphics were great, reminded me of BF2, but much more destruction from frags, bullet shots, walls breaking apart etc. This is just a 1 map Beta version (test version), only active on line till I think 10-10-11. Servers are very limited, server slots full, took me a while to finally get in. Going prone is in this game, at least right now. Just wanted to post a quick run down of the BF3 beta gameplay on my particular system.
