Battlefield 1942 demo
What do you guys think? I've only been able to join one server so far, and the sound was fuzzy and it crashed. :rolleyes:

yes, i was just going to suggest that...
tried it for 2min...good graphics, controls lag a bit (mouse lag).
played it at 1280, good framerate, don't understand why the mouse delays...

You can get rid of mouse delays by messing with v-sync on and off. At least it's worked for me on a few games.

I'll try turning on sound acceleration, but the framerate will probably dip quite a bit.

nice game, the MP demo is pretty half baked though..

only 1 in 4 times will i sucessfully get on a server, and never have i been able to play for more than a minute before it crashes to desktop

other thing is that many people have to drop to 60Hz to get the game to even load (which sucks big time - ugh, i got a headache from that part)

apart from that, LAN games work just fine, amazing game there! it just needs some bugs stomping

Works fine for me, its quite fun too, basically a WWII version of tribes :)

I've only played it for about 1hr or so but I thought that it was alot of fun. The airplanes are great, lots of fun to fly, so are the other vehicles. It feels like a massive multiplayer online game without the price. It's just a cool feeling to be fighting on the ground with dog fights above you and tanks coming at you and artillery pummeling the shore. I had alot fun can't wait to see what thay bring in the retail ver.

Anyone having really stuttery video without setting direct3d v-sync to "Always On"? I have to turn vsync on or I warp. And with vsync on, the frame rate sits at about 42 (half refresh rate).

I think one cool thing about the engine is that the battleship and aircraft carrier aren't fake static objects on the map. You can actually drive them around. The last game I play I was on a battleship as it sank, just made it to the life boat in time. It was cool.
