UPDATE
Ok you lot cos you all still lounging in your beds i downloaded the demo version and tried to run it but got a 3dx9_29.dll is missing so done some digging and it seems microsoft have made some changes to the way they update direct x, developers are meant to install the dll's as part of the direct x part of thier installation but some arnt naughty naughty
so found the missing dll's at

http://www.dll-files... ... l?d3dx9_29

installed it keeping my fingers crossed it didnt muckup my DX10 installation and everything seems ok can play the demo now no probs cant wait for the full version to arrive

just need to try and survive for more than 10 seconds tho lol

The game is awesome mate. Enjoy it.

I am on Vista Premium 32. And i have had no problems what so ever. Worked straight out of the box (had to download the latest patch though) Or else there are hardly any servers :D

Download the patch before the game comes. It's pretty big! Like 500mb or something.

http://www.battlefie... ... 10306.aspx

Here, if you look on the left hand side it says Battlefield 2142 Update 1.25. Just click on it to start the download. It is only 287mb :)

But yes it has worked perfectly on Vista with both my 7900GTO and my 2900XT so there is nothing to worry about from Nvidia/ATI drivers either.

Aye Attack kit FTW!!!

My BIGGEST pet hate about the game are DEMO PACKS!!! GRRRRRRRRRRR

Little cowards who just put demo packs down and then literally wait 5 minutes for some1 to come along and blow them up... dude im gettin an average of 3 kills a minute, you gettin 1 every 5... GET THE HINT!!

Just to clarify this isnt being aimed at any1 here.

or people on his team that blow up his beacons! lol!

GRRRR!!!

Armor wrecks it becuase unless you've actually got decent people on your tema, no one spawns as an engineer to blow the bitch up.

Shotguns annoy me becasue I blow a full clip into someone and they dont die, then I get shot once with a shotgun and im dead.

And as for people ON MY OWN TEAM who blow my beacon up..... he was involved in a fatal accident with my knife 10 seconds later, shame really.
