I was playing online (via local) against my kids all in the same house
and same router. I was the only one getting enough chop in my video that
my screen literally froze for about 5 secs while I could hear the action
still goin. I have an AMD 2g CPU, 1G DDR ram and an ATI radeon 9800 pro.
Seems to me that I could run the highest settings and not have such
video troubles. It runs nice in singleplayer. Is this a known problem or
has anybody experienced this and figured a fix? I have the newest
(4.6) drivers for my vid card. Mine is the most powerful system in the
house, why would I get the issue ?!?! thanks

Latest drivers for 9800 are the Catalyst 6.5's.........

Dunno if they'll help....

Perhaps single player runs better because it's a smaller map?

Highest setting for textures reportedly needs a 256MB or even 512MB gfx
card. Apparently more system RAM and increasing the AGP aperture size
(in the bios) can both help, though.

I have a similar system (XP3000 & 128MB Radeon 9800 Pro) and have
everything on medium, but that's partly because I'm stuck on 512MB RAM,
until later this week, when I'll have 1GB and be trying to push a little
higher.

What resolution are you playing at, how many players and what framerates are
you getting?

1024x768 32bit 85KHz. I run this resolution in every other game I play
with no problems like this. Myself and my 2 girls only. Not sure what
FPS I am getting, how do I find that out ?? It doesn't matter
either if I am walking through the jungle or in battle....it chops at
it's own will.

With my setup I found I could only get smooth gameplay if I set everything
on medium, except for shadows which I set to low.

I had a simular problem when BF:V was just released. I solved the
problem by reducing the sound channels to 32. It turned out my soundcard
couldn't handle the stress.
