MP1st - Battlefield Community Managers, Ian Tornay and Daniel Matros respond to community requests such as the ever-sought-after spectator mode, VoIP on PC and Input Lag fixes on PS3.
On a game like this, there's input lag for the PS3 version? That's horrific. Especially since EA/DICE said that Activision has their 360 game (COD), and they had their PS3 game (BF3). Input lag on a FPS is a day one no no imo.
I don't get input lag for Battlefield 3 on my PS3 but i heard that some people do. I saw a video on youtube with almost half a second delay on input which was just awful. I can't wait for Battle-recorder though :-D
Okay, if it's such an issue, can ANYONE tell me what the latency is? I can't find any real facts anywhere. So many games these days get called out on the ps3 version for "horrendous input lag", but no facts get presented.
Input lag on PS3? Never heard complains about it. Why did this get approved? When did PS3 gamers complain about the lag in BF3? I have clocked in 231 hours on the PS3 version and I never had lag.
Carlito, it seems to be a result of defintion and monitor. For people that only play on the PS3, it is easly overlooked or adapted to. I play on both PC and PS3, plus BF3 is not the onnly FPS I play. Trust me there is input lag but, like I said the player can adapt...usually takes me about 3 to 5 mins to get my aim on.
Man I want Battle-recorder , Hurry up DICE!!
Download fraps you can record all you like. Dont need to wait on them to provide you a recorder lol. @below Its a resource hog yea, but space naa i dont think so.
Fraps takes up so much space!!!! I know it's wishful thinking, just want something better with as much quality, yet not use up so much space @ Above Hmm, IDK I always end up with 1GB per minute. I have a large HDD, but I have used other recorders that almost have as good quality with far less consumption. Are there certain settings you have? Reason why I don't like the big files is typically I bring my stuff in Sony Vegas/ Pinapple/ or some other editing software and the rendering can take some time
battlerecorder has nothing to do with Fraps. Its a spectator mode you can play back your games, and fly around like a spectator fraps cant do that
That is the only way to do it Nitrowolf2. I do the same thing. 1080P at 60FPS gets me about 1 min of video and takes 4GB for me. http://i.imgur.com/nZQEg.pn... I bought a 1TB hard drive though for recording (at the time only 80 bucks, a WD Caviar Black too). Then I edit and make my video in Vegas, compress it (yes this takes forever but it makes a 50GB video become 1.5-2GB video), and upload it to youtube. The good news is Vegas and Premiere and others are slowly adding support for letting the GPU in our computers render video. This can be around 20x faster than the fastest Intel processor! So a 1080P 30FPS video that is 12 min long used to take 2-3 hours to render depending on your CPU, but now can be done in as little at 6-10 minutes. BTW, on topic, Battlerecorder is like Theater mode in Halo 3/ODST/Reach or in COD:BLOPS/MW3. It records the matches data and movements, and then REPLAYS it. So you would have a BF3 match that went awesome, you goto battlerecorder, you play it back, with the camera angles you want, with time slowed down or sped up where you want, no hud, etc, and use fraps to record and make a much more professional video.
Hell yea i took out a jet with the usas with the 12 frags(yes i know the cheapest combo)but wish i could have saved that moment:(. @Endoran bored with your$60 map pack already??XD.
Dam the game has been out for so long, PC and 360 users been enjoying since the start. Why is it PS3 gets shafted on the biggest games of the year? This year its been BF3, Skyrim of the top of my head.
a new ui is hard to make..really..iv seen a fan made one that looked 1000 times better then dices and he is just one person. voip should have come with battlefield from day 1 we should not still be waiting months later.
yes there is input lag on ps3 ver.close quarter combat is really annoyimg
F that DICE. put the ps3 input lag at the top of your list. Why is it always at the bottom? If you can't fix it make a statement or issue compensation. Free DLC or PSN credit or something. This needs to be addressed
if it makes you feel better, they said they were gonna fix VOIP for BC2 on the PC and it was still messed up when I played it last a few months ago. DICE is a good developer but they have their issues.
"some TV's get more and others less" that's interesting. thE input lag is a pain but actually fixing it must be a bigger pain for DICE.
In Bad Company 3....i hope they start it out on consoles and port it to PC..Then there will be nothing to complain about.
Or, they would build the game on all platforms from the ground up, but maybe that's just wishful thinking.
Don't worry BF3 fanboys this will be fixed when BF4 comes out.
My cousin and I actually quit playing BF3 due to this input lag bullshit. BF3 is the ONLY game where I've experienced this issue (except for the KZ series), and after months of supposed "progress" they still don't know anything regarding the cause. I was a massive fan of DICE after the beauty that was BFBC2, but this just completely pisses me off. Feels like a $60 purchase gone to shit.
same here man i haven't touched bf3 in months because the controls are horrible . i tried messing with the sensitivity but it doesn't do squat . i refuse to play this broken game untill dice fixes it but by that time i would have probably sold this broken game . dammit dice almost 5 moths and nothing ? just bull$hit
I keep hearing about this input lag I'm not getting in my game, could it have something to do with 1080p TVs trying to upscale the game? Or does it also happen to people playing it native?
Played bf3 on my ps3 on lg 42" works fine. Plasma lg 50" works fine and still workin fine on my new samsung 40" why u guys get this input lag is beyond me. And all my sets are full hd and are set 1080p on my ps3. Even had no lag on the 26" acoustic solutions only 1080i compatible.strange.
