PostSubject: BF3 Tips and Fixes   Wed Feb 22, 2012 11:22 pm

Hey boys just thought I would post this up as I remember some members got disconnected when a new map loads.

I did this and have not had any issues since.

The addy where I got this information from: http://forums.electronicarts.co.uk/battlefield-3-pc/1460983-bf3-tweaks-fixes.html

Also here is a bf3 settings editor that seems to be popular amongst competitive gamers http://bf3.realmware.co.uk/settings-editor/



Fix for extreme slow load times between maps

Turn off PC UPnP Service:

1. Press: Windows-button (the one between lAlt and lCtrl) + R, a window should pop up.
2. Write: "services.msc" (without the ") then press enter.
3. In the list of services, scroll down to "UPnP Device Host", click it and press "Stop service".
4. Now do the same thing but with the service "SSDP Discovery".
5. Exit the window and go to control panel-> Network and Internet-> Network and Sharing Centre-> Change advanced sharing settings (to the left)-> Under "network discovery" select to turn off network discovery
6. SAVE CHANGE

Long Map Load Times ?

-Is affecting many users, even those with HDDs in raid 0.



Fix:

Try:

Open / Run: regedit.

Navigate to: HKEY LOCAL MACHINE/SOFTWARE/WoW6432Node/EA Games

Change the GDFBinary & InstallDir paths to C:\Program Files (x86)\Origin Games\Battlefield 3\

Try to launch the game and join game servers, and it should work.


Alternate Fix: Buy a SSD drive, install BF3 & origin on there.

Cheers mate! Smile Im sure it'll help some of the lads.

Now if you can only make Big Mac's less addictive, I'd really be in your debt.
