actually, there's a game demo out, from what i understand, but only a
"select few" have access to it. i've heard that a clan/game server
community has a copy and some of their players have tried it. nothing
substantial yet, but the rumor is firming up a bit.

There are a load here:

http://www.fileplanet.com/98272/0/section/Movies

The one entitled "Battlefield 2 - Explosive Trailer [Insane Quality]" is
pretty recent - could that be the one you're after?

Cheers (and thanks to Malcolm for the link)

glad to oblige, a mere 275MB download..
same as the QT one on the EA site but DVD resolution.

theres about 1.5GB of BF2 gameplay movies out there at the moment.
including the 600MB German Realease party one.
whre they show off the engine and have 2 players demoing things.

Wow! Just watched this and BF2 looks amazing! I better start saving up
for a new PC now. Any idea what the min and max recommended specs are?

just look atthe features and you should be able to determine what sort
of system you'll need.
http://www.eagames.com/official/battlefield/battlefield...

Hmm Voice over IP well that means your going to need some processing
muscle and a high end sound card to take some of the load off that
processor is a good idea too.
new engine, with immense maps and relistic physics and dynamic lighting-
well that means high end video card for sure -say a 256mb 6800 series
card minimum.
load times will be long so I recommend 1GB low latency ram as well as a
minimum.
you do intend to play this online no? so gigabit ethernet and high speed
broad band, make sure you get a nice fat pipe and if your ehternet is
built into the board enure you can set it for full duplex.
then there are peripherals. a decent joystick is a must logitech's
extreme 3d pro is a great value.
mouse, gotta have a mouse. I use and love the razer diamond back- pair
it with a large low friction mat surface and adjust that 1600 dpi mouses
sensitivity to your exact preference and your play will improve. also in
game remapping your controls is helpful. for instance mapping the two
side buttons for pistol and 'nades helps a great deal, well that and
learning to snap the reticle at their face. The reticle snapping skill
is especially effective with the shotgun and the SF weapons not so much
with the barret.
just some suggestions to get ready for BF2. You can go much high then
these I just put some minimums out there (realistic ones not what the
box will say).
see you on the field.

While I would agree that a sound card is vital to preventing the
leeching of valuable CPU cycles, there's no need for a high end sound
card. Our network connections prevent us from being able to need to
process THAT kind of sound quality. I'd say anything from a Sound
Blaster Live! on up would do just fine.

But yeah, for the sake of your ears and your framerates: get a
soundcard. Do NOT settle for onboard sound (unless you're already
suffering from hearing loss and can't tell the difference between the
two and don't mind the minor reduction in useful CPU power...).

I read in an interview somewhere, that if you could play Battlefield
Vietnam comfortably, you would be able to play BF2. However, common
sense indicates that you will probably need a step up from that, to
really enjoy all the new features.

Yeah, I've heard that. What motherboards are offering that chipset,
though?

I'll have to second that, Andrew.. I loved on-board audio on my A7N8X
as well. The quality and clarity of the sound was better than most PCI
add-on sound cards that I have ever used. I initially was planning on
using my SB Audigy with that board, but had issues with it and figured
I would have to "settle" for on-board sound.. Had I known how good it
was to begin with, I would have never even tried installing the
Audigy.

all your botique computer makers, alienware, falcon, vodoo, et al. are
using pci sound cards for a reason. they wouldnt add to cost if they
could help it.

I noticed better sound and better game performance when I disabled the on-board
Soundstorm and installed an Audigy.

Firingsquad.com did a good comparison of the Audigy 2 and Soundstorm 2
chipset's and overall they came out about equal overall. CPU usage was
very similar. Unfortunately I can't find it on the site now.

I had nothing but problems trying to run my Audigy on any nForce2
motherboard. It might have been a problem with the Audigy, but it was
a nightmare experience that ultimately led me back to building Intel
machines.

How would the sound card end up giving you better game performance?

Indeed, I would have loved them to include it on the NForce 4
platform.

Well I dont believe a gigabit network card aint helping if your broadband
modem is max 100Mbit. So there you have your bottleneck.
total nonsence to buy a giganetwork just for this game. you wont notice
much of the speed is my opinion. What would help is a good videocard. But i
would recommend just wait till the specs are out then find a proper card
wich you also can pay.

Well and ofcourse i cant wait till the new bf2 come out also.

Till on the battlefield (2)

RedBear1 out.
