Yep, I don't even have Origin open. All I'm doing is using battlelog in the browser to search for servers and launch the game.

I cant figure it out...I tried all different settings but i still get this horrible shaking screen when running and straffing. Finished 1 map and started the next and my fps went from 55 down to 25 :/

I have pretty much a clean install of windows 7 on too only reinstalled last week.

Does this game even need AA ? I really don't see the difference between off, 2X and 4X

Just in case anyone doesn't know. Bookmark the battlelog page, login and just look for servers and launch the game from there. There is totally no need to use Origin.

Something tells me that ultra is not ultra and we're not seing maxed out graphics.

Yeah, I noticed that. Vegetation looks better outside but that's about it.

Getting 65-85 fps with everything on Ultra.

Played for 20 minutes and it suddenly sunk in that this game isn't different enough from BFBC2 to keep my interest.

It runs considerably worse, but doesn't look that much better too.

Weblog is a pile of **** too.

Best thing about this game is that i'm pretty good at it, easy to pick people off because they are struggling to run the game. lol

Cheers EA, just saved me 30.

Strange, not it launches Origin and didn't before. I turned Raw mouse input off and it seemed to be better for me.

Just read a few other reports that players with Logitech G9 are experiencing similar probs to me.

Edit: Just tried my deathadder instead, problem still there...give up trying to solve it now ive tried everything. Maybe my GPU just isnt up to the task anymore but i doubt that as i dont have a problem with any other game and i do get 60fps on average. Just glad i didnt pre order it, not too keen on paying for a beta with more maps.
