I've heard things that make it sounds like the FC3 of BF, in terms of console-style auto-matchmaking where the system picks which player is the server for that game, etc. Yay.

Well, shit. That's not the type of comparison I like to see. :cry:

PCWorld's beta review. Not as glowing as Kotaku.

Anybody try the beta yet? I'm downloading it now on my work laptop which is definitely sub-optimal, but I thought I'd at least give it a try and see what it looks like.

Doesn't look like I'm going to get a chance to try out the beta, unfortunately. Downloaded and installed, but I get a warning when I launch it that my drivers are too old. There are two sets of graphics drivers on this laptop; Intel and NVIDIA. I updated the NVIDIA drivers just fine, but apparently the Intel drivers are DELL specific, and I get a warning that installing vanilla Intel drivers might cause bad things to happen. Unfortunately there don't seem to be any newer DELL specific drivers available. So...not sure where to go from here. I don't want to risk using the vanilla Intel drivers, as I'm probably pressing my luck as it is installing games on my work laptop.

I'm guessing the game is trying to use the on-board graphics (Intel drivers), thus the warning. Is there any way to specify or force the game to use the graphics card (Quadro K2100M) and its drivers?

EDIT: Well, I figured out how to force the use of the NVIDIA card, but the game still says my drivers are not up to date even though I downloaded the latest NVIDIA Quadro drivers. Apparently, the latest NVIDIA Quadro drivers are not sufficient. Looks like I'm sunk.

@Defty
My laptop is Core I5 with Nvidia 310m card... it's less than optimal also with Battlefront...
On the good side, my 8 yr. old Desktop took a dump on me, so I'm at the beginning stages of acquiring new components in which to build my first computer...

I have a PSU, HDD, optical drive now... gonna make a decision on a case next...

You should chat with Trop -- he always has the down-low on the sweet cases.
