Once you are actually in a game you can hit Esc and find the menus to change graphical settings, etc.

Chance of Caspian Border being opened up to all PC players... The files were included in the download and apparently it was possible to get in the servers if you just had the password ('Rumncoke' if anyone feels like trying, I don't have early access tho)

OK thanks, but I did try that last night but only access to Squad, Loadouts etc?!? Didn't see any real 'options menu' for mouse, keyboard, screen or any other kind of settings for that matter. Maybe I missed something obvious

I'll check again tonight.

Password will be changed again to something else at 18:00 CET.
According to my internet search, 18:00 CET is 12 Noon EST. I heard they just brought up a bunch more Caspian Border servers. Play'em if you can...

EA/DICE... seriously... this is lalalalaing awesome. THIS is what Battlefield is all about. I immediately felt and heard the intensity that a Battlefield game is supposed to have. Why are you lalalalaing around with Operation Metroll in this beta? You can blow your audience away with Caspian Border, which is a true Battlefield experience. I was very disappointed when playing Operation Metroll, but Caspian Border has made me a happy person again. If you really want to redeem yourself, I suggest you put up more Caspian Border servers, and open them up to the public. Well done. Now go, and do what you gotta do.

Edit: To those who aren't able to play Caspian Border, you will not be disappointed.

As crazy as it may sound, while Rush Metro feels like Medal of Honor mixed with Bad Company 2, Caspian Border feels like a the true spiritual successor of BF2 that everyone wanted for years. If you doubted conquest then you're in for quite the surprise. If you were hyping conquest all along, then it's probably more incredible than you could ever imagine AND more. Every bit of excitement and giddiness you received from the first time you watched the first BF3 teaser and up until you saw the recent Caspian Border gameplay trailer, it's there in full force. You won't know the immense satisfaction of realizing that conquest and BF3 in general is saved until you play the map yourself. All your doubts and pessimism will be washed away instantly when you walk around for the first 10 minutes or so. You will be awestruck and I'm 80% certain that most players will have the same reaction as most of us are that got a chance to play Conquest.

I love how you can fall under the map. Awesome job! Also, the frequent screen flashes... nice nvidia! What a mess this game is. Clunky controls... etc.

It's a beta game and a beta driver. Dur.
