    *Old beta tweaks may not be applicable in the new BF3 release.



    Battlefield 3 Tweaks & Fixes (Open Beta)



    See this thread for widely known bugs. MUST SEE Thread !

    2 - General Gameplay Tweaks / Fixes.
    3 - Game Crash Fixes / Stability Fixes.
    4 - Frame Rate & Performance Tweaks / Fixes.
    5 - Punkbuster & Kick issues.






    1: Network Tweaks.


    Fix BF3 Beta Disconnections:
    -Disabling upnp in your modem or router should fix the issue.
    -Turing off antivirus & making exceptions in firewalls may also help.





    BF3 Beta Port(s)

    -UDP 3659






    EA Origin Ports:
    (Might want to allow through firewall & portforward if having issues)
    *Note these arent necessarily the ports used by BF3

    TCP ports:
    •80
    •443
    •9960-9969
    •1024-1124
    •18000
    •18120
    •18060
    •27900
    •28910
    •29900

    UDP ports:
    •1024-1124
    •18000
    •29900













    2: General Gameplay Tweaks.

    These are some potential ones from my google search: GU (Gamers Underground) <- all credit goes to those posters.

    How do I change my FOV (field of vision)?
    - Using a hex editor, such as NotePad++, open "PROF_SAVE_body" from within \Battlefield 3 Open Beta\Settings.
    - On the 3rd line you'll see "70.000000". Change to your desired FOV, save and exit.




    How can I play Battlefield 3 using my Steam overlay?

    - Disable Origin's overlay (click the gear/cog and go to the "in game" settings tab).
    - In Steam, add Origin.exe as a non-steam game to your library.
    - Launch the Origin shortcut from your Steam library, then launch BF3.


    How do I display my FPS (frames per second)?
    - While in-game hold Ctrl + Alt + S. The screen's upper left corner will show your frame rate.


    If things seem blurry or seemingly unresponsive
    - Disable motion blur in your graphics settings


    If players look like they're "floating" in tunnels and dark spaces:
    - Re-enable HBAO in your graphics settings


    If your graphics preferences don't seem to be saving:

    - Restart the game as some of the settings are can't change ingame (in Beta)


    I seem to be having clipping issues, floating through the floor etc.

    - Try a different server host as some servers seem perfectly fine while others are horrid.









    3: Game Stability Fixes.

    Problem: BF3 Crash.exe
    When clicking on Join Server from the browse server window i only get "Joining Server" after that nothing happens at all.


    Fix:

    Due to the è in the folder name the game won't start and generates an Application Error in the event viewer.

    To change this on x64 systems :

    1) Goto the folder where Origin installed BF3 Beta (C:\Program Files (x86)\Origin Games\Bèta Battlefield 3)

    2) Rename the Bèta Battlefield 3 folder to Beta Battlefield 3

    3)Start regedit , browse to the following key :

    HKEY LOCAL MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WoW6432Node\EA Games
    Change the GDFBinary & InstallDir paths to C:\Program Files (x86)\Origin Games\Beta Battlefield 3




    Problem - Low frames / Black Screens.

    Fix
    If you are experiencing Battlefield 3 black screen issues, or just want higher frames per second:
    - Update to the latest BF3 optimised drivers (Nvidia or AMD ATI Catalyst)









    4: Frame Rate Issues:

    Nvidia Graphics Settings & Expected Frame Rates Per Card Type:
    http://www.geforce.com/Optimize/Guides/battlefield-3-beta-performance-guide



    BF3 Driver Downloads:

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

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


    (Link FIXED)





    5. Punkbuster & Kick issues.

    PB is now enabled on alot of servers. If you are getting kicked try reinstalling PB.
    Located in your Origin folder.

    C:\Program Files (x86)\Origin Games\Battlefield 3 Open Beta\__Installer\punkbuster\redist\pbsvc.exe













    ****Hit Rego Fixes****

    Only way to fix this is to get onto the developers about it =/
