Why oh why did Gamespot have to get the 'exclusive' and not 3dgamers which uses bittorrent? At least that way the server wouldn't fill up.

I do really wonder about that.  Bittorrent is not unknown..but it has the added complexity of needing a client to be installed.

Actually, it's basically a ploy to get people to pay for their subscriber service.

Deliberately cap the downloads for non subscribers to ludicrously low levels.

When will things "open up" so to speak so the rest of us can download the demo?  I really don't think I'm up for waiting in some line nor buying a premium service.

Saturday morning maybe?

DAMNIT! My onboard video (geforce 4 mx 64mb) can't handle it, let alone even start it! All that time downloading for nothing.. I'm almost tempted to go out and buy the cheapest video card that can get me by, any suggestions?

Here are some other sites where you can download it. I'm getting it at Filefront right now at 110kb/sec:

I subscribed to fileshack since their service has been great to me.  I'm already at 41% downloading at my max 80kb/s.

That said, this demo goes true public tomorrow.

Oh, and there's word that there's a 12 minute limit for game rounds on demo servers.  If that's true, I hope someone cracks the servers.

Although, the full game comes out in about two weeks.

Decent speeds from the torrent, around 70 to 80k or so.  I'll be done in about an hour.  It's as easy as typing in the name or IP of the server that Ron's setting up right?

EA page lists this as the minimum requirements:

Video card must have 128 MB or more memory and one of the following chipsets:

    * NVIDIA GeForce FX 5700 or greater
    * ATI Radeon 8500 or greater

That's some requirement, alright.

Nice surprise from the Fileplanet Founders club. Those of you that are part of that can download the file from 3D Gamers without wait. Apparently the login information transfers over to that site as well. Nice perk seeing that Fileplanet doesn't have the demo up yet.

Well... I'm in... and I'm lost.  Models sure do look good though.

Played single player map a few times to get the feel.

Going to venture into mp now.  Will check back here occasionally to see when Ron's server goes up.

Edti: Got my first assist kill playing as a  sniper.  Getting jacked up big time playing as my spec ops guy... but I still like him.   So far, things seem pretty unorganized (at least on the 2 servers I tried).  The game seems to play pretty fast-paced.  

Looks pretty damn cool so far.  The first time you see an assault chopper fly over your head... WoW !!!!!

Am I the only one getting random lock ups?  I think it's an issue with Zonealarm.  The first few times I started it up, it would freeze when it went to the account creation screen; figured it was ZA asking to configure access rights but the screen wasn't coming up.  Had to reboot so I went into Zonealarm and configured BF2.exe full access and it worked fine.  Single-player is okay:  AI sucks ass.  Going to try it again with ZA turned off and see if I can get MP access that way.

Lordy-me....  are Medics and Support troops ever awesome in this game!!!  Support troops keep you stocked up on ammo.  These guys will be very popular... mark my words!

edit:  I'm really getting the hang of the Spec. Ops. guy now.  He is worth diddly-poo at range, but he is good at close combat.  Perfect for both taking and defending flags.

Oh... don't underestimate the Sniper's use of the knife either... OUCH!!

Fun fun fun!!!

okay, okay, I'll start seeding again.  Maybe that'll earn us some torrent karma and bump up your speeds.  Sooner you get client, the sooner we can get some inter-CG action going.:wink:

Early report on the A.I. Bots:  Not too shabby from what I can tell.  They come patch me up when they are near me and I need it.  They will come patch me up if I call them too.  I call for ammo: Sure enough, here comes the support guy to stock me up with more C4.  Call for a ride... Yep.  Here comes the jeep.  Call for repairs to my tank, there's the engineer, ready willing and able.  When you join a squad and choose not to be the leader, they will tell you to defend points, take points, etc...

In one match, I had just taken out the enemy Satalite Scanner and was going for his flag.  An enemy medic came up and tried to kill me with his defib.  I killed him just in time, only to be knifed to death by the sniper who earlier was up on the roof above me.  It's early, but not too bad.

OK.  It's up and running.  Crowley just plastered me all over the desert.  However, the game is quite blah with only 3 or 4 playing.  How do we rectify that?

Typing in the IP worked for me as well.  Not bad.  Would be more fun with a lot more people.  Should we set up a time when we can all agree to try and be on the server?  Crowley suggested tomorrow at 6.  Thoughts?

Also, does anyone know if the VOIP is enabled in the demo?

Thanks for the update on the bots, Lockdown. Only makes me want to play it that much more. If only it didn't have such redicilous requirements for the video card! Even a GeforceFX 5500 256mb won't do, it looks like.

Silly me I thought the GeForce 5700 was a recommended card not the minimum.  Guess I won't be playing until I upgrade.  Well, I was going to do it sometime this summer.  Off to pricewatch.

Regardless, AAR hosting, Screenshot hosting and forum support offers still stand if interested.  Let me know.

Anybody else getting weird shadows in this game?  Everyone seems to have about 12 square feet of shadow under them and it's literally square shaped.

I have the latest drivers, 6600GT, 1 gig ram, XP3200.  Everything else runs smooth except I don't think it supports 1280x1024 so my LCD is getting no lovin...

If we set up a time tomorrow to play I'm in.

You should be able to play on a geforce 5700. The minumum is better than not being able to play at all.. (Geforce 4 MX)

Anyone play some more of the singleplayer yet? Is the leadership AI decent? We know the bots will play as squad leaders, what about commanders? Do they coordinate their attacks at all or does it all seem random?
