Hello There, Guest!

I write this post, because I'm actually expecting a great increase of questions (which already have been answered in the past), complaints (in the most cases, there are also the same or similar posts out there) and insultings (words like "noob" / "nub" are actually the lesser harmful, but they are still insults).

So, things you need to remember, when you're going to interact in this forum:

[Image: 1.png]


The official Forum-Language is ENGLISH. If you write in another language, the most sure thing which will happen is, that your thread will be closed or deleted. If you continue to write in other languages than english, it will lead you finally to a ban.

Do not write the thread-title in CAPS. Your threads will be closed and/or deleted. Doing this many times will also lead you to a ban.

The most posts complaining something are still out there. Before you're going to post anything, take about 35-55 seconds to expect if there is any post with the same content. Try the Forum-Search.

Do not feed the trolls. This means, that there are a lot of provocating users out there, which just try to make you nervous and finally let you post something which can be used against you. The best thing you could do is simply to ignore them.

Do not post any kind of hacks, cheats or sites who provide them!

At least you should take a look on the Forum-Rules!

The actual minimum system requirements:

OS Windows XP/Vista/7
CPU: Intel Pentium 4 1.7 GHz CPU
RAM: 512 MB for XP / 1 GB for Vista
HDD: 1 GB hard disk space
GPU: DirectX compatible 128 MB graphics card with Pixel Shader 2.0 or better
SPU: DirectX compatible sound card
INETCON: 256kbit cable/DSL connection

This packages are also needed in order to play BFP4F:

(Link) .NET Frameworks 3.5 SP 1 [MUST HAVE!]
(Link) .NET Frameworks 4.0

Battlefield Play4Free is still in Beta and that means in development.

The game is called "Play for free". This means, that you can always play it without paying one penny but at least, if you want the cool stuff, you'll need to pay for it. There is nothing to do against this Business-Model. It was also proven, that EAsy will not have any kind of significant loss, because a really small percentage of users who post into the forums are complaining the micropayments. For further information please visit this slideshow.

Complains about the prices generally are accepted. But remember to use the Forum-Search instead of opening another new thread. Finally there will be never a Credits to Battlefunds or Battlefunds to Credits converter. So, there is no need to make any kind of suggestions to implement it. For further information also visit this slideshow.

You're not able to switch the main-character without having battlefunds.

You're not able to delete characters.

If you want to report a cheater please click HERE and after that, select "I want to report a possible cheater/hacker" from the dropdown-field.

If you've questions about the game and his functionality, you also should Try the Forum-Search. The most of the questions were already answered in the past. You should also take a look on Players helping Players.

Post into Technical Support if you're experiencing technical issues, when you're trying to start / play the game.

Post into Store Support if you're experiencing issues with the store.

Post into the corresponding Game Bugs- or Web Bugs-Forum if you've found a bug.

If you find hacks / cheats for BFP4F, we all will appreciate it if you report them directly to Punkbuster vía research@evenbalance.com.

Insulting or harrassing other users may be funny but at least, you're attended to follow the Forum-Rules. If you don't do it, you'll get banned faster than as you can see a lightning.

Calling people a noob, nub, fool or things like that is pretty condescending. So, just don't do it. Insulting people can lead you to a direct ban.

Generally you should NOT open any kind of troll-posts. It will lead you also finally to a ban.

Naming of cheaters isn't allowed at the forums due to the fact that in four of five cases the player isn't actually cheating. Cheaters can be reported to support through this link.

Do not shame people using pictures or mimes. Doing this will finally get you directly banned. No kind of bullying will be tolerated by EAsy and the Community Moderators.

Do not hack. Obviously there are a lot of users who like to destroy the gameplay-feeling of others for their own amusement, using cheats / hacks. Discovering that you're cheating will also lead you directly to a ban.


And please remember to use the Report-Button. It works!

Well, lets see how we can improve this more. We've just reached the first stage of the upcoming Open Beta. Just try to figure out, how it will be, when the OB really starts...

Another forum rule; I personally got a warning for it although there wasn't an official announced and open source readable paragraph - just an order from the blues:

Do not spoil in the forums! It's prohibited to present any not official announced, confirmed, indicated, twittered or intentionally leaked content as an upcoming fact, if it isn't obviously intended to reach the community. Either it should become a suprise, is in a too early developement state or it's just a lie - simple as that. It doesn't matter if you found the information on another third party platform or in the game files. You don't want to wait for content that eventually will never be released and hype up if it turns out as a false statement.

ESL, but it's a nice § imo Wink

K.I.S.S. should be:
Keep - It - Short - Simple

Although we look green, we are here to be the right example, we don´t do drugs.

In BF:Heroes there are over 10 topic a day about this problem by people who don't have .net 3.5 .

You actually forgot the most important part about the NETFX3.5 SP1. Since version 3.5 is preinstalled on e.g. Windows 7 (not sure if it also is on Vista), but not the ServicePack. And the SP1 braught some new funtionality that is needed by the updater.
Also sometimes .NETFX 4.0 is needed, too. Though this is somehow inconsistent, since can play without it, and others need it ^^

Anyways, here are the links:
.NET Framework 3.5 SP1: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/detai...laylang=en
.NET Framework 4.0: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/de...laylang=en
