Battlefield Bad Company 2 Online

I've been beta testing and I'm having occasional connection problems and lag. As it's being released on 5/3/10 I would appreciate if you would please add it to the list.

Re: Battlefield Bad Company 2 Online

full game is out now and it seems to be ok online, apart from a few issues with ea's own system the game is fantastic. a much better experience than CoD imo, amazing.
i would do a wireshark trace but last time i tried i had no idea what i was doing. followed the plusnet tutorial but still got lost.
maybe im just a dumbass
probably...

Re: Battlefield Bad Company 2 Online

After further looking into the matter, it definitely needs sorting at plusnet's side, as my dad whos on aol who lives down the road from me (and my m8 dan who is ok KC) have absolutely no problems with things im having a lot of difficutly with. they have lower pings than me consistently and their server browser works great (mine doesnt). re-installed mine just incase and its the same thing so im gonna do a wireshark now as best as i can. wish me luck

If you can't do wireshark just do a tracert.
From desktop:
Start
Run
type: cmd
type: tracert xxx.xxx.xx.xx            (where x = the server IP)
Press enter.

Re: Battlefield Bad Company 2 Online

I've done a wireshark capture and raised a ticket as I didn't get a chance in the Beta as they finished it before I had time.
It's difficult to tell if it's prioritised correctly as the destination port NDMP on my IP shows 0xa0 which is titanium for gaming/VOIP applications, but anything with a port number e.g 45617 is 0x20 which is Bronze.
Anyone know how to interpret the data correctly?
The ports the game uses are
18390 TCP Outgoing
18395 TCP Outgoing
18395 UDP Outgoing
13505 TCP Outgoing
     80 TCP Outgoing

Re: Battlefield Bad Company 2 Online

I've been having all kinds of problems since the full game was released and that's on a non-Plusnet connection. The server browser is very slow, sometime I get random game lag, other times I get error messages saying I've been disconnected from the server. Sad

Re: Battlefield Bad Company 2 Online

A quick scan over your wireshark capture is showing all the traffic from the gaming server is identified as 0xa0 (Titanium).

Re: Battlefield Bad Company 2 Online

ok wierd though as since ive had responses about the ticket some of the issues have gone O.o my friends couldnt see when i was online and i couldnt see them either or what game they were in, and now its fixed (even though my mates on other isps could see it no problem from release)
well its definitely working sweet now, just need ea to fix their damn servers and we'll be killing those russians again.
kind of frustrating that they didnt cater for this load, and the server browser is awful.
if they would have implemented it :-
This game + Steam server browser/friends system = Top Notch

Re: Battlefield Bad Company 2 Online

Xbox seems ot be ok, some lag but i attribute that more to EA servers than plusnet
