Found out that if you force BC2 to use Dx9, you framerates increase by alot. Tried this and have big performance improvement. Try this and feedback how you get on.
Change :
DxVersion=auto (or something)
TO:
DxVersion=9

This can be located: D:\Users\..\Documents\BFBC2Beta (i.e. in your documents folder).

For VISTA probably 10,
For 7 probably 11

For xp wont make any difference - already 9?

using that tool gives you dx options, using vista or win7 depending on your card you should be on dx10 isnt dx11 for the late late cards???

you'd only want to drop back DX version if you have probems with video card drivers not liking the new 10 and 11. leave it at auto kids.

sorry Karl you run XP, so i dont see how you could know if it makes a difference? Check out the EA forums, lots of people suggesting it.

Are you a dx expert? No, do I have a PC with much faster framrates? Yes

@action... There were plenty of nicer ways to say that. I didn't say it did not make a difference -- I'm just pointing out why they have an option to set a dx version.

Fine drop your dx version to get a few extra frames but you'll miss out on all the extra graphical goodness dx10 and dx11 bring. You are tweaking performance for a BETA release that EA have said is not currently platform code optimised and is not using the final graphic textures.

But what would I know after 20 years in IT!

setting are always under "my documents/..." so they are recorded per user (should more than one user account be setup on your system)

My Documents/BFBC2Beta -- for XP
Vista and W7 changed this slightly by using a \Users\ folder

Sure Action will politely correct me if I'm wrong

I knew it...Action is "increasing " his frame rate so that occasionally he gets 40 fps.....well my new PC :"Grief" gives me 70fps in this game...no wonder I can knife people so much more easily than in 2142.

Dont listen to Action..go Windows 7 and Direct X11 dudes
