Battlefield: Bad Company 2 Patch Will Address "Stability Problems And Performance Issues"
DICE hasn't forgotten about the fans still loyal to Battlefield: Bad Company 2. In fact, they have now scheduled a patch to go live on Wednesday, September 21 that will address stability problems with the game and performance issues.
The patch is fairly large at 2.6GB and will include the following fixes:
- Removed some memory leaks
- Fixed crashes when the game attempted to render lots of content (high detail, high FOV or multiple-monitor modes); this should particularly help multi-monitor users
- Chat window no longer causes lag spikes
- Chat window reworked opacity & visibility-time is controllable through settings in settings.ini
- Clantag is remembered when using auto-login
- Banner URLs can be up to 252 characters in length
- SecuROM wrapper removed from non-Steam version
- Minor performance enhancements
- Reduced rubberbanding on servers with more than 24 active players
- PrintScreen takes a screenshot, file stored in Documents\BFBC2\Screenshots directory
It's comforting to know that even with all of the hype surrounding Battlefield 3, DICE is still working on Bad Company 2.
