This is a good example of why DICE did not want to include the modding community for the game.


Even the average modder, who's not making any money, is doing a better job then the nut-jobs at DICE.

it's more a trick, and i use a command/parameter that relocate all the hud things,

Don't know, but i remember the bluetinted box issue on bfbc2 . i think the guy who's in charge is not a programmer. I'm kidding....no, i'm not

no bud you didnt

The fact that you can read this, means I am a better person than you, in general

Shame you can't shrink the chatbox, that would be even better

I don't have an issue with chat box size at 1920x1200 but I'd love to put it top or bottom left and have the minimap top right! Not sure how that would work with the map in large mode though..

Yeah, i agree, but there is no such ting in the PROF_SAVE_profile file.

In BF2 as i remember there was the possibility to make it more or less transparent and to switch on/off the data icons. i miss the old desert combat mod too.

i tried GstRender.ScreenSafeAreaWidth 2.00000 but i missed the map

@Deadeye60: You want to lose the only form of communication DICE has allowed us to have with the whole team?

Yes prime example. Last night I ran out of ammo and found a gunner. I pressed Q......Q.......Q......Q nothing the request ammo was not working so I then typed into team chat "Ammo please" while looking at him. He then turned and ran away. I followed him an then used squad chat "SupportsName Hey man I need Ammo!" He then procedded to hop out a window to his death.........

Then the rest of the game is Admin spam and morons arguing over who's dick is bigger and who is da bestest!

When i need ammo, i use the old "shoot near his feet " trick but with a silencer ,off course ;)

Haha! I've been there too. I usually resort to jumping up and down in their line of fire! It's really really shit tbh!

Deadeye60, Just imagine what in-game voip would be like! :P That's why it doesn't interest me...

Anyone have values for 1920x1080 res?
i wouldnt do it for such resolutions in this way
try more expand on the corners like this

GstRender.ScreenSafeAreaHeight 1.30000 kind of
GstRender.ScreenSafeAreaWidth 1.10000


Because its more a compromise than a real fix

As i said some other info will moved too,

just a little emphasis on your post so others can see...

epic thread is epic



So if its not razor1911 and other hacking scene groups fixing EAs game for them, its their own userbase.



I will never buy from EA again without pirating first
