    BF3 Open Beta Client Download:


    Might be handy if you have unmetered with your ISP:
    (Not only that but Local traffic *within your ISPs network* is often faster than National or International traffic)





    http://games.on.net/file/45410/Battlefield_3_Open_Beta_Client -Internode

    http://www.gamearena.com.au/downloads/details.php/battlefield-3-beta-client-7z -Gamearena (Telstra AU)

    http://www.on3network.co.nz/downloads.php?do=file&id=107 -TelstraClear (NZ)


    EA Origin - Under free games section. Wont popup until the open beta time starts.








    BF3 Driver Downloads:

    http://www.geforce.com/Drivers/Results/38108 - For Nvidia Geforce users.

    http://support.amd.com/us/Pages/AMDCatalyst1110Previewdriver.aspx - For AMD (ATI) users.




    Install Guide:


    How to install this client:

    0: First, you need Origin, EA's distribution platform.Download it here.

    1: Launch Origin.

    2: Check your Origin settings (click the 'cog' icon near the top right of the Origin screen and select 'settings' from the drop-down menu).

    3: In the settings, note the directory for 'downloaded games'. By default it is "C:\Program Files\Origin Games" or "C:\Program Files (x86)\Origin Games" depending on the version of Windows you have.

    4: Close Origin by clicking the cog icon and selecting 'exit' from the drop-down menu. You need to exit entirely, not just minimise the program.

    5: Extract the archive contents to the directory you identified at step 3.

    6: Once the extraction is complete, rename the 'Battlefield 3 Open Beta' directory to 'Battlefield 3 Beta' (if it's not already).

    7: Check that the archive extracted properly. You should see a directory C:\Program Files (x86)\Origin Games\Battlefield 3 Beta (or similar, depending on step 3) that has 6 files including bf3.exe and 4 sub-directories including Core and Data.

    8: Start Origin and log in. You should now see Battlefield 3 as 'Ready to Install'. Click on that orange 'Ready to Install' button.

    9: Done!
