  1. I found out I cant rely on Windows update to tell me when a new video driver is available.

    I just downloaded Forceware 84.21 drivers that came out 2 months ago!

    WHAT A HUGE DIFFERENCE!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I AM GETTING AROUND 30 FRAMES PER SECOND MORE!!!!

    In the heat of battle I was getting around 10 frames per second, now I am getting around 40.

    This is at 1280x1024 @ 85Hz and everything at low settings.

    With the same screen res and with medium settings, I am getting frames in the 30's during battle, and near 60 away from battle and smoke and flames.

    I should do better online now, my overall kill ratio was only around 1 to 1 on average.

    Smoother frame rates should get my kill ratio up a bit.

  2. I downloaded FRAPS, and I get between 20 and 40 when not in battle, but the frames drop down to 9 in battle!!! I have a good machine with low settings, maybe I need to try the extreme drivers?

  3. Specs are:

    AMD64 4000+ CPU

    2x XFX 6800GT sli

    X-Fi Soundcard (Vanilla version)

    Asus A8n-sli MB

    2GB Corsair Matched pair ram running in dual channel mode

    Video drivers 84.56 Extreme (got the link for these off one of these forums. Can't remember which)

    Sound drivers autoupdated from Creative website.

    Graphics overclocked to 412MHz and grahics memory at 1.14 GHz

    Ingame resolution set at 1280x768@100Hz

    All other options maxxed out.

    FPS Single Card: min 28 max 41

    FPS Dual Card : min 38 max 61

    Runs smooth as silk with no stutters.

    Wow, thats around a 25 to 33 percent increase in frame rates with the second card running.

    When I play Single player mode with the same settings as Multiplayer mode, I get no mouse lag. But when I play online I get mouse lag and the frame rates drop when 1 or more enemies are in view, especially if they are close and firing thier weapons.

    I dont have a problem winning a shootout at close range in SP mode, but in MP mode I appear to shoot first while my opponent is running, but he can usually shoot and kill me as soon as he is able to return fire. I have a good cable modem and ping, maybe its partly server lag. Also, I noticed much more misses online than offline. I see people running and shooting with great accuracy, they must have kick ass systems, playing on thier own server, or possibly have cheats already?

    I'm using the 81.98 driver, I thought that was the latest. Windows Update shows no newer.

    Is that extreme driver a beta release?

  4. LONGER BARRELLS ARE NOT MORE ACCURATE THAN SHORT BARRELLS.

    THEY GENERATE MORE PRESSURE AND VELOCITY RESULTING N A FLATTER TRAJECTORY.

    i dont know how u can say the scar-h is less acc. than the scar-l, sure the stats may say that but seriously 99% of my shots with the s-h are 1 shot kills, not up close either...

    scar-h + forward grip / M9 with silencer / extra scar-h ammo

    ^ my fav. kit

    The SCAR H has more impact power, so one shot kills instead of 2 or 3 from the Scar L.

    THE SCAR L hits more but takes more hits to kill than the SCAR H.

  5. I have a dual core overclocked Athlon machine with 2 gigs of Corsair Ram with an EVGA 7800 GT card overclocked with 256 megs of ram.

    I have to turn down everthing to low, turn off shadows, keep dynamic lighting on, and it runs pretty good at 1024x768, but lags a little in the heat of battle.

    I have a high end new machine and this game needs more than what I have.

    I have an ASUS A8N32-SLI motherboard. And a 550 watt Enermax powersupply that will handle another video card.

    Has anyone seen or read that two video cards in SLI mode helps this game significantly?

    Some games are helped a little, some not at all, and some even have slower frame rates with two video cards!

    Should I get another video card?

    Do I need the exact video card?

    Thanks for any response.

  6. RURAL MAPS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    SNIPER WEAPONS!!!!!!!!!!!

    SENSOR KITS!!!!!!!!!!

    WEATHER!!!!!!!!!

    Variable scopes would be great.

    GRASS AND BUSHES THAT YOU CAN ACTUALLY HIDE IN AND NOT BE SEEN.

    EASIER TO SHOOT IN PRONE POSITION!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    FIX THE MOUSE LAG!!!!!!!!!

    FIX SOUND ISSUES WITH AUDIGY CARDS OR ANY CARD IF NEED BE.

    ABLILITY TO CHANGE COLOR OF RETICULE!!!!!!!!!!!

    SMOKE SHOULD NOT DISSAPATE SO QUICKLY.

    ABILITY TO TURN OFF BUYING OF WEAPONS.

    BINOCULARS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    BLOOD, LIMPING ETC.... FROM GR1 AND GROANS WHEN YOU GET HIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Quick removal of dead bodies. They bodies really pile up with unlimited respawns.

  7. A shorter barrel is stiffer and actually more accurate.

    A longer barrel achieves a higher pressure, thus a bullet exits the muzzle with a higher velocity.

    The larger and more powerful cartridge the SCAR H uses would make up for any small velocity loss from using a shorter barrel, over the longer barrel SCAR L with its smaller cartridge.

    The SCAR H should be more accurate than the SCAR L, as well as more impact energy.

    The only drawbacks the SCAR H should have compared to the SCAR L is that it should have more muzzle jump, carry fewer rounds, more muzzle flash, and cost more points to buy.

    LESS TIN CANS ON THE GROUND.

  9. My favorite all around weapon is the SCAR L.

    Its more accurate than SCAR H.

    SCAR H uses a heavier bullet, which in the real world would be more accurate by bucking the wind better.

    Why did GRIN make the SCAR H less accurate than the SCAR L?

    It should be a better long range weapon.

    I would like the SCAR H to be more accurate, and cost more points to buy.

    It should fill the gap between the M99 sniper rifle, and the smaller caliber assault rifles.

    If they made the SCAR H atleast the same accuracy as the SCAR L, it would be my favorite all around weapon.

    Also, using the M99 is scary when you have to load one cartridge at a time!

    Cant we get some Semi-Auto sniper rifles please?

    And what ever happened to pistols for Snipers?

    I think the idea of having to buy your weapons with points is good, but it should be an option that servers can turn on and off.

  10. 1. Realistic stopping power.

    All rifles have the exact same stopping power as of this writing in the x-box version! Larger calibers should be getting more one shot kills. Pistols should have much better stopping power at short ranges, and even worse stopping power at long range.

    2. Realistic ballistics. Bullet drop and wind drift.

    You would need a wind meter like in golf games. I know I will never see this wish incorperated in the game, but you never know. The meter should show wind direction and strength, with gusts. You would have to sight in your rifle at the range.

    3. Realistic depth perception.

    Objects in the game look much farther away than they really are.

    Also, you rarely can see and shoot anything beyond 200 meters.

    200 meters is medium range in the real world for most assault rifles, and short range for a most sniper rifles. We should be able to see out to at least 500 meters on most maps. Keep some maps foggy though. For people who have older video cards, an option to set the fog distance would be great!!!

    4. A.I. enemies swarm on you, and see you through cover too easily in the x-box version. They find you even when you just call in an air strike and never fire a shot yourself!!!! They can see in the dark like they have N.V.G.

    Bring back stealth, and slow down the game play. Make sure tracers and muzzle-flash are accurate and realistic for each weapon.

    5. Cheaters ruined Ghost recon 1 for me, please make it harder to tamper with GR 2 files. GR 2 for x-box has cheat codes built in, wont this make hacking the game easier??? Punk buster has its problems, so come up with something better please!

    6. Ghille suits for snipers! And a camo covered sniper rifle.

    7. The game should remember what your default weapon is for each map.

    8. Customizing your camo clothing, scope, bi-pod, and weapons etc... by using a point system to purchase them would be fantastic. You could have them pre-set for each map ahead of time!

    9. Able to block out lone wolf weapons and rocket launchers online, but still allow hand grenades for everyone, and grenade launchers used by grenadiers!!! The X-box version blocks all explosives, or allows all explosives. Its hard to find a server that allows grenades!!!!!!!

    10. Instead of using pips, have actual recoil effects.

    After shooting, your crosshairs should move off of your original aiming point.

    The worse the recoil, the farther the crosshairs should jump up off of your original aiming point. Also, after shooting, the view through your scope should be temporarily blurred. How long it's blurred depends on the amount of recoil.

    11. I would love to have a variable scope. In the real world I use a 6.5x - 20x variable powered scope. I would love to use this scope on a sniper rifle in GR2.

    A 5x-15x variable, or 5x-20x variable would be better though, with 3 settings you can actually use though,..... 5x, 10x, and 15x or 5x, 10x, and 20x respectively, if you cant make them actually zoom in and out 1x at a time that is!!!!! The scroll wheel on the mouse is perfect for zooming in and out.

    12. Give us the option to turn on/off blood and gore. Or just give us the blood and gore!

    13. A friend of mine says he would love to have smoke grenades, Its not a big deal to me though.

    14. Able to choose your crosshairs type. Not a big deal, but the color and type would be nice to be customized by the player.

    15. A pistol with a 2x scope.

    16. More non-linear maps. Maps like the old Fort Drum "Wilderness map", and the "Farm map" were great. GR2 for x-box has some great maps I love, but the run and gunners like to play 5 minute games on maps I hate, like "Sand mine", "Train Station", and the very linear maps "Quarry" and "Pagoda".

    I love the GR2 "Lost convoy", "Railway", and "Training" maps.

    17. GR2 for x-box allows respawns on or off only. You should be able to select exactly how many respawns are available, like you could in GR1. Also, you should be able to play longer than a 25 minute time limit. My most fond memories of GR1 were playing 1 hour matches during 10 on 10 team league play with no respawns!!!!!

    18. Bring back sensors, but they should be able to be turned off like lone wolf weapons. Instead of showing you exactly on the map where the enemy is, make sensors use the existing radar thats already in GR2 instead. This radar tells you the direction and roughly how far away the enemy is, instead of exactly where he is on the command map like GR1 did. This will tone down the effectiveness of sensors a bit.

    19. The Ghosts do well at long range but at short range they need to be better. For instance, I could have a grenade in my hand and an enemy solder can walk right in the middle of the four of us and none of the ghosts will shoot him. Most of the time many seconds go before someone, including the enemy, shoots! Fix this please.

    The ghosts are suppose to be elite soldiers but you would never know it, especially at close range.

    20. Bring back the original threat indicator and the sound of the enemy's footsteps.
