can i ask someone whi has played BF4 beta somthing? has all the dust and lens flares been reduced or not, i couldn't play BF3 because of it, otherwise if BF4 has less i think i could manage to play it, just curious
User avatar #17 to #15 - KayRed (10/13/2013) [-]
Not something I've noticed, either because it is less, or I've just gotten so used to it in BF3 that I don't notice anymore.
User avatar #19 to #15 - freedomreturns (10/13/2013) [-]
More dust, less lens flare.
User avatar #25 to #15 - soopfox (10/13/2013) [-]
Well, since there is only Siege on Shanghai, there is a lot of dust. It's not really a problem until the tower falls. After that, there's dust/smoke everywhere and can be very slowing on your system.
User avatar #26 to #15 - ultimatebadass (10/13/2013) [-]
Yes for dust but only on the beta map, after the tower falls
User avatar #28 to #15 - postie (10/13/2013) [-]
The dust is awful after the tower falls on the beta map.
#44 to #15 - jboienggh (10/13/2013) [-]
I played the full version of BF4 at Eurogamer this year on Xbox One and there was a lot less lens flare. As for dust, I wasn't paying all that much attention but for it to not have caught my attention it can't have been too bad. The Beta however I can't play at all, it's nothing in quality compared to the full game.
User avatar #60 to #44 - thalfak (10/13/2013) [-]
It wasn't a full game at Eurogamer...
#62 to #60 - jboienggh (10/13/2013) [-]
I know it wasn't full but, it was a far better version? (my technical knowledge is letting me down here). All in all, it just felt a lot better to me than the Beta does. On PS3 in any case
User avatar #69 to #62 - thalfak (10/13/2013) [-]
It is. The PS3 version is fine for a Beta. There was problems on the previous BF3 beta too... But from watching Youtube and livestreams I learned that some of these bugs aren't on the PC version...
User avatar #53 to #15 - yusay (10/13/2013) [-]
The only beta map is very clean, until the skyscraper falls. After that the map is very low visibility.
User avatar #42 to #15 - breakfastskippa (10/13/2013) [-]
I played like 2 games of the beta and was bored, coming from someone who played bf3 nearly everyday.
#48 to #15 - thalfak (10/13/2013) [-]
I played nearly 15 hours of the beta.
It seems like less lens flare
Less sun brightness and size
There is a lot of particles from different things like the collapsing building
There is no blur/insane supression nor does supression change your gun's performance.
Vehicles are way quicker and moveability is quicker too.
The connection seems better, you can easier hit someone on the run or someone who's falling.
Although a lot of this is posetive changes then again the Beta is poorly optimised for both PC and Console. Console has a lot of crashes and very poor graphics. The PC has/had very low framerate even for high end PCs.
Also Console is still boring because it's limited to 24 players, but the new game mode seems like a lot of fun.

BF4=BF3 without flare
#21 to #16 - cursesnew ONLINE (10/13/2013) [-]
Actually no. BF4 plays quite differently from BF3 and playing BF4 beta for just a while was enough for me to learn that.
User avatar #22 to #21 - drastronomy (10/13/2013) [-]
i am aware

but it is the same concept, the same feel, the same gameplay mechanics...its just added some few features

i have played a few hours, and thats my experience of it
User avatar #30 to #22 - Mahazama (10/13/2013) [-]
That said, is it as much as a waste of money (were it so) than Ghosts? BF4 is not some DLC, it has plenty of key features unavailable in BF3 and you really get your dollar's value with the amount of work DICE puts into the ******* maps m8,
A map designed for BF4 should typically take hundreds more man-hours than a map made for Ghosts, given that it is supposed to accommodate many more people and is HUGELY detailed for it's size, with no expense spared.
#24 to #22 - blarny (10/13/2013) [-]
Because the human eye can totally recognize lens flare, something only machines can see as the human eye is incapable and we wouldn't all use squad perk 'Team Shades' every day of the week to remove it.

But that would be wrong as it would give everyone an unfair advantage of actually being able to see!
User avatar #64 to #24 - aesguitar ONLINE (10/13/2013) [-]
you realize that that's an image from bf3 right?
#100 to #64 - blarny (10/23/2013) [-]
You do realize I was pointing out the fact that DICE once again blinded players to the lovely engine with that idiotic over the top lens flare effect that the human eye cannot register yes?
User avatar #101 to #100 - aesguitar ONLINE (10/23/2013) [-]
Video game engine geared toward strategic use of equipment vs. reality. That's your argument, seriously?
#102 to #101 - blarny (10/23/2013) [-]

The military has spent billions on anti-glare **** for both sniper scopes, optics, shades, etc.

How is lens flare, which again, the human eye cannot actually register, an accurate representation of all the equipment the military has developed?

User avatar #103 to #102 - aesguitar ONLINE (10/23/2013) [-]
Again, look at what I said. The game, overall, is trying to be at least somewhat realistic to life, however, there are certain elements in real life that don't translate into fair gameplay. If you really want to get nit-picky, how come snipers don't have to compensate for wind, how can you steal another jet mid-air, how come light poles are completely indestructible, etc... BF3 is the most realistic game of its time, however, when you translate life to a game, some realism is lost.
#104 to #103 - blarny (10/31/2013) [-]
I'm sorry, but now you're just making my case for me about how the game is completely unrealistic.

If you want to talk about the most realistic game of it's time, look at ARMA, one simple realism mod and snipers DO require windage, nothing is indestructible, you cannot typically defy laws of reality, at least not in ARMA 2 currently, ARMA 3 is going through beta and as such is broke as hell.

So tell me again about how lens flare being forced onto players assists in 'fair gameplay', how is blinding everyone with unnecessary and ridiculous looking rendering effects either realistic OR enjoyable?
User avatar #49 to #16 - thalfak (10/13/2013) [-]
What did you expect BF4 to be a RPG?
BF4 is what BF3 should have been to be the perfect game in my opinion.
Although the controls and poorly optimization is horrible then the Beta has been a good experience.
All classes are now usefull, all Vehicles has a good purpose and isn't just transport. The Jeeps with .50cal is actually a threat to Infantry now. And the Transport Heli isn't just an easy target to any Attack or Scout helicopter. A tank takes skill to beat 5 Infantry players due to the poor damage from the main cannon. AA seems OP not sure about that. Boats are awsome and Obliteration is suprisingly good too. Defuse returns the classic Counterstrike game mode which will be an outstanding game mode for competetive.
TL;DR: BF3=/=BF4
User avatar #57 to #49 - yusay (10/13/2013) [-]
Not to mention "Levolution" (epitome of marketing).

It actually does really help the game, along with how they've revamped the work of the maps (only going off of Shanghai though). Lot of rooftop combat, and B and D feel like war zones.
#59 to #57 - thalfak (10/13/2013) [-]
I should first slap myself and then laugh at myself for forgetting the most important point of them all lol. Yeah Levolution is a huge plus
#63 to #59 - yusay (10/13/2013) [-]
Then there's Commander mode, which looks like it's going to be so much fun (admittedly I only got into BF with BC1). I'm sad to see how little they've mentioned Rush, though.
User avatar #1 - ilikethisusername (10/13/2013) [-]
**** doesnt even work. it shows me a white screen after the loading screen is done.
User avatar #11 to #1 - johndapro (10/13/2013) [-]
Game runs at steady 60 FPS for me except for the first 10 seconds off connecting.

The map is boring as **** once the house has been destroyed.

Also, birds without wings.
User avatar #39 to #11 - ilikethisusername (10/13/2013) [-]
birds without wings? lol what the hell? im guessing its a bug or something.
User avatar #43 to #39 - johndapro (10/13/2013) [-]
I don't know, something about saving space from the beta, they removed a lot of things from it.
User avatar #20 to #1 - ASDLSD (10/13/2013) [-]
Mine can't work too, all my games work on max settings and bf4 lags like hell even on lowest.
User avatar #38 to #20 - ilikethisusername (10/13/2013) [-]
ya, i got it working tho. but the lag is too much, i mean i understand that running the game "arma 2" on 25 fps or 30 fps is normal, because its arma. but bf4? come on, do we really need that good graphics in a ******* game. all we need is a good gameplay and just decent graphics. we don't need all that gamma boost and the ******* blue tint and all, its just so annoying. you look up to the sun, god bless, your whole screen turns white.
User avatar #50 to #38 - vicsix (10/13/2013) [-]
You can't get anything better than a 2 bar on console. The lag is ******* **** for everyone, not just because of graphics.
User avatar #86 to #50 - ilikethisusername (10/13/2013) [-]
i heard that some people are complaining that the punkbuster is lagging them. probably that, or there could be some other reasons.
User avatar #56 to #1 - yusay (10/13/2013) [-]
There was a patch yesterday. Have you downloaded that?
User avatar #89 to #56 - ilikethisusername (10/13/2013) [-]
i just did, it started working but it's lagging now.
User avatar #91 to #89 - yusay (10/13/2013) [-]
After the newest one my framerate issue got fixed, so I don't know what to tell you.

I was getting 5-20 FPS average before when it dropped, but during an entire session last night it stayed at 40-50 FPS.
User avatar #92 to #91 - ilikethisusername (10/13/2013) [-]
wow i envy you lol.
User avatar #93 to #92 - yusay (10/13/2013) [-]
Have you tried the newest AMD or Nvidia drivers?
User avatar #94 to #93 - ilikethisusername (10/13/2013) [-]
oh yeah, before downloading bf4 it told me to download the newest drivers. already did that.
#95 to #94 - yusay (10/13/2013) [-]
Oh well.

The only other thing I've heard that could be causing it is your motherboard shifting everything to low power mode by accident mid-game.

The beta just seems to be very poorly optimized, which is really frustrating, but when you actually get to play it smoothly it's really fun.
User avatar #81 to #1 - naitsabesh ONLINE (10/13/2013) [-]
Just delete the system32 folder and it should go smoothly.

go to the punk buster website and install their patch. Or, delete the "pb" in the bf4 directory and have origin repair the game.

its not working for many people. its not only me. my friend runs battlefield 3, crysis 3, etc. on 60 fps. even for him the game doesnt work. sometimes the loading screen just freezes and the background music starts looping or it just freezes and music still goes on, or it shows "saving at the top" and then suddenly white screen.
