Game updates

Postby Mort » Tue Dec 10, 2013 7:25 pm

First update to fix bugs etc...

Today (December 9) we’re rolling out a new server update and a game update for Battlefield 4 on PC, starting at 11AM UTC. This will address issues such as server/client crashes, collision bugs, and frame rate drops. All details can be found in the links below. As a result of these updates, Battlefield 4 multiplayer on PC will be unavailable for a few hours starting 11AM UTC.

Learn more about the server update

Learn more about the game update.

As always, you will find all the latest updates on Battlefield 4 stability in the Control Room.

Update is 888.35MB, so not so bad in the scheme of things.

Game Update #2

Postby Mort » Mon Dec 16, 2013 8:28 pm

Flying thick and fast now!

After some quick games this afternoon, now I get the message saying the server/game version isn't compatible. I did a quick "Check for Updates" on the game and another 891.87MB download is now in progress...

Looks like another update that they haven't remembered to tell us about yet.

my game downloaded it twice of course, and then IE11 refused to allow the plug-in update so I've switched to using Chrome.

http://battlelog.battlefield.com/bf4/fo ... 669468231/

Dec 20 PC Game Update Notes
-Fix for terrain flickering when using SLI/CrossFire setup
-Fix for three of the top crash issues on the PC platform
-Fix for case when soldier can die with 1 HP instead of 0
-Fix for the issue where the revive UI could be permanently shown after accepting a revive

Geez, talk about showing us the love. Have this many updates ever been released IN TOTAL for any other BF release? It's almost like they are trying to fix all the problems BEFORE the release of the next version.

Game updates #6

Postby Mort » Mon Jan 13, 2014 9:12 pm

And here's another update. The number of fixes and updates is starting to scare me a little now

http://battlelog.battlefield.com/bf4/fo ... 343296656/
Fingers crossed this fixes my memory leak issue
Jan 13 PC Game Update Notes
-Various fixes for improving general stability
-Fixed a memory leak issue occurring after level shutdowns, which could result in a out-of-memory crash in longer play sessions
-Additional fix for the "sound loop" deadlock when running High/Ultra graphics settings
-Added a warning for using Legacy AMD drivers that were out of date
-Fixed a player feedback timing issue where blood was appearing before other damage indicators, and before damage was actually done
-Fixed a bug where players’ rank icons on the scoreboard would not be updated
-Fix for Asian users unable to start Battlefield 3 and Battlefield 4 on Windows 8.1
-Normalized repair rates across all vehicles.
-Fixed problem with killer health in kill card not being correctly updated (showing 100% health even though the soldier was hurt)

-Fixed a bug where a Main Battle Tank Coaxial HMG ammo box was occasionally blocking the driver’s camera
-Increased damage by 25% for the Stealth Jet 20mm cannons.

A new update coming down, 1.23GB. I'm at 94% of my download quota for the month so luckily I've got just enough left to get the download on this months tally.

My guess is this is the Second Assault expansion. (edit: no, it's not, just another huge update http://battlelog.battlefield.com/bf4/fo ... 815503479/)

Also, it will prompt you to update your Graphics drivers. For me AMD to 13.12 or later (which I thought I was already running).

Arent they something to do with the new graphics thingy - mantle? My card is too old to run it (needs to be ATI 7000+) so would be interested to hear if it makes a difference?

Considering how big a deal they are making of mantle, there is surprisingly little info about what it means. From what I've seen so far it just seems to be a FPS increase by taking load off the CPU.

Dont be surprised if when you play you lose sound - its from the latest patch apparently - strangely relaxing.

I've had a thing where there's no sound when I first get into vehicles. Takes a second or two to start.

Apparently AMD held off releasing the new drivers needs for Mantle support, but it seems they are up now
http://support.amd.com/en-us/kb-article ... -beta.aspx

I think you need a 7xxx series or above card to use the new stuff, or one of the newer Rxxx cards. I'm just hoping there's other tweaks that might fix my memory leak issue. (update: nope, new drivers don't help)

I can no longer get into the gunner position of an IFV or tank - instant black screen crash.
Seems to be a pretty common issue.
