  1. Start -> All Programs -> Cornered Rat Software -> Battle Ground Europe -> Settings Use the Video Card drop down to make sure your Nvidia card is selected. resolution can also be changed here.
  2. Cool. Thanks tarpoon. S!
  3. Good deal. Your bandwidth is more than adequate both upstream and downstream..that isn't the issue. Updated drivers and done maintenance yet? I'd like to know if those steps helped. GL and see you in game!
  4. Hey guys, I'm a prem sub guy but have a friend I talked into trying the game out..he's f2p. Is he able to multi-crew a tank or boat that I spawn? Rats? Anyone? I've been hard selling the game to him for a month now..gimme good news
  5. Hey Peels, Your system specs are fine and are actually very similar to mine. Whereas I have a Phenom II 720BE and 4 gig, you have the 840 with 8 gig. We also share the same video card. There's no reason the game should run choppy from a purely hardware point of view. I tend to get 50-55 fps in the open and 30-40 during battles. I did notice your Amd drivers are dated 5/2011. I would update that to the latest catalyst as a first step. Other than that, try some basic maintenance; remove unneeded programs, run the system cleanup wizard and defrag. Update other drivers such as audio and network. Check the event viewer (system and app folders) by going to start/run type eventvwr.msc. See if there are any major reoccurring errors or warnings. Also try to run with as minimal a startup environment as possible. You can adjust those either manually through regedit or by running msconfig and unchecking apps in the startup tab. Barring video (or a potential hard drive issue which eventvwr and chkdsk can point to, how is your internet connection? Stable? What's the speed. Check it with Also, welcome back!
  6. To follow up: While I had no ctd's yesterday, I did today. Same graphics write access violation. Copied the ww2errorinfo.dmp below. Was hoping the new catalyst 12.8 would fix it, sadly no. 1 4278788609 1348429331 3220276090 3515903375 0 3221225477 5753054 0 GL Vendor: ATI Technologies Inc.|Renderer: ATI Radeon HD 5700 Series|Access violation: Illegal write by 0057C8DE at 000001E8 $Id: wwiiClientMessages.cpp 3678 2010-05-18 08:10:04Z osmith@CRS $ This file contains data on the last abnormal application termination that is used to submit crash information automatically to Playnet.

  7. That PC will definitely run the game fine. However, it is a pre-built and they have to make their margin somehow, usually by sourcing the cheapest parts. You get a little less..such as two dimm slots, stock cpu cooler, micro atx motherboard etc. I'm also skeptical they would actually send a 2gig GTX560..the price doesn't work out. Also, they spec a 500w PS in their details but show a whitebox no-name 700w. Me? I'd skip it. I priced up equivalent parts on newegg below. G.Skill ripjaw series gaming ram, true corsair 650w power supply (don't skimp on the ps), full size atx case. Sata 6gbs HD. DDR3 1600 ram instead of 1333. Finally a cooler master tower cooler and gaming case. If it were me I'd spend a few dollars more and get either an Asus or Gigabyte board.

  8. try hitting alt+tab and re-selecting ww2ol
  9. Think it's sort of a sore spot with DOC at the moment. They're working on it, he posted in game one of the servers went down. All we can do is wait.
  10. There appears to be many causes and potential solutions to CTD errors, so this may not help you in your situation. It is however worth a try. Testing so far today has been positive. No CTD's after the change but I'll update as testing goes along. SYMPTOM: CTD (crash to desktop) with no message/warning after attempting to "Enter World". SOLUTION: In my case the CTD's would happen roughly every 4-7 spawns, usually after playing for a while (20-30 mins) in an area, despawning, changing brigades, then trying to enter a different map region. After a CTD, a file is created in your user\docs\battleground europe folder with the extension .dmp. Reading the file showed the cause of crash to be a render error attempting a write operation with my AMD 5700 video. The drivers I was currently using were AMD 11.11. Updated to latest Catalyst 12.8 through the AMD control panel. So far no CTD's, but again, more play testing will tell. Something to try at least. My specs.

  11. FTP players can't cap? Huh?
  12. Hey guys. It's been a long..long time since I've been in game and playing--7 1/2 years to be exact. I was there for the launch in '01 and played till early '03 as Papagulf. I just re-subscribed (a lot of life got in the way) and am looking for any of my old squad buddies. My memories failing lol, but my squad was the french Lafayette. Anyone remember or can help point me to what happened to the squad? I was a tank Colonel back then (Chars and S35's)..ran a few hundred missions and used to run the boys on special ops caps. I noticed my rank has been downgraded to Lieutenant..but that's all good. Anyhow..I'm in the midst of building a new rig with newegg, so for the next week or so if you see me in-game take it easy on current machine is close to unplayable. S! Edit: Guess I posted to the wrong forum, been a while sorry.
