What the hell are Battlepacks and why are Redditors so mad about them?

I don't know but here's the FAQ from on how they work.

http://www.battlefield.com/battlefi...faq/battlepacks


Hey Grey Fox why is this thread like 80x shorter than the last one?

Because if there is one thing I've learned in my years on SA it's that none of you clowns read the OP.


BF4 is acting weird after reinstalling Windows!

Jippa posted:

I have really good info that needs to be added to the OP.

I had trouble getting the expansion maps to work after re installing windows on a new drive with origin and copying my bf4 folder over. The vanilla maps all worked but nether of the expansions did.

This is how you fix it china rising (I have just done it and can confirm it works):

Please first make a backup copy of your registry as described here: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/...y#1TC=windows-7 [windows.microsoft.com]

Next check out these steps below:

1. Log out and fully exit Origin
2. Open your Registry Editor - Type in regedit on the Start Menu Search field and press Enter
3. Navigate through HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE > SOFTWARE > Wow6432Node > EA Games > Battlefield 4
4. Check if there is a folder named Xpack1 under Battlefield 4
If YES -> Click on Xpack1, on the right pane check if there is a string named Installed, the Value data should be True
If NO - right-click on Battlefield 4 > New > Key
- a new folder will be created, name it Xpack1
- right-click on Xpack1 > New > String Value > name it Installed
- on the right-pane, double-click on Installed, set Value Data to True
5. Exit Registry Editor
6. Log in to Origin and Join China Rising Maps




I'm going to try the exact same as above just with Xpack2 which I'm guessing is second assault.

e- hmm ok that second one didn't work for second assault I wonder why?

e2 - Ok second assault = Xpack0

As more people get new drives this info should be helpful.


Hey your OP is missing something important!

PM me. If you want me to post a server make a PGS thread for your server community and PM me the link. Do not include the server URL since the URL is subject to change and I don't feel like fielding PM's every time you change it.

I'm not quite sure I'm following your question, but BF3 has never been free. You only 'count' as Premium if you shelled out for the Premium service on top of the regular game.

At the top center of the screen on battlelog there's a BATTLEFIELD PREMIUM button with a little triangle next to it. Click that and there's a drop-down menu that switches between the BF3, and Warfighter battlelogs. The BF4 one will probably be active once the beta goes live.

Didn't they give away like, CQ or something for free a few months ago? Maybe he means that. If so, no, you're hosed.

So my schedule is pretty clear this week so I'm hoping to get a feel for the game. The kicker is I am super wary and really don't want to give EA anymore money for a lovely game. Thinking about preordering it on Origin and canceling it if the Beta is anything like BF3s. Unfortunately EAs return policy is kind of weird on this:

quote:

The Great Game Guarantee allows you to return EA digital game downloads (PC/Mac) purchased on Origin for a full refund within 24 hours after you first launch the game, within seven days from your date of purchase or within seven days from the game's release date if you pre-purchased/pre-ordered, whichever comes first.

Me playing the beta shouldn't count as launching the game right? Nor should it count as a purchase if the game hasn't been released. Anyone with actual Origin return experience that can alleviate my hesitation?

I'm going to be fairly busy starting on the 6th so I don't want to wait till the public beta considering how the servers will definitely be.

The beta is a separate entity as far as Origin is concerned, you should be fine.

Considering the maps are probably designed with the next gen systems in mind, which support 64 players they should, in theory, not be poo poo this time around.

Of course the emote exists for a reason.
