FYI:

ATI has a preview driver for 5000 series that is supposed to fix the long load times in Bad Company 2.

  1. Hmm, I might have to look into that. I was wondering why it took so long sometimes.
  2. worked of me... i load in about 5 seconds now.
    Used to be 20-30
  3. hope it works for me...

    i'd noticed that by the time i load 9/10 people on the server were already fighting in the centre of the map, all the vehicles gone, and i have to run miles to the next point.
  4. Wow. Definitely an improvement. Like Nemi87, when loading up the level, it's done in 5-10 seconds rather than what was 30+ seconds for me.
  5. yup works for me too, more often than not im the first person to spawn in the entire server most times xD makes for a funny first 30 seconds hidden in their spawn
  6. NICE!!! I will have to snag that tonight. Haven't had time to install lately. Yeah, I am getting tired of loading up and then having the rush points under attack already.
  7. Wow, I can actually load the map and sit there while the ticker is counting down so I can grab an atv or tank. About time I don't have to spawn on a squad member off the get go to get somewhere quickly on the map. I don't think the drivers are as stable in gameplay though.
  8. Anyone know how this affects the 48** series? The long wait is annoying, guess at the mo I'll have to wait for the full release and see what happens
