I downloaded the game HD textures first and played the first 2 days without downloading the disc and the graphics were way better than not downloading the tex pack, I downloaded the Multiplayer/co-op disc yesterday and did not have a prob? evry hing loads in faster now especially when looking down a rifle scope across a map I noticed the ground was more clear and had a further draw distance as far as grass textures etc. maybe its a hit or miss? I'm running an old 120gb elite.
I'm trying it again.
When I bought the game, I came home, stuck in the disc; and installed the game to the hard drive first. Then, I went on to install the HD textures when prompted. I thought I had them this whole time.
Today, after reading a post about the HD textures, I uninstalled the game, uninstalled the HD texture pack, and reloaded the game from the disc. I installed the HD texture packs again, and I was like WOW!!!
I then decided to install the game back to my drive, and, while it looks better than it did the first time, not ALL of them are appearing like they were.
I've done this twice now.
The game is installing again (3rd time), and I`ll try it one last time. Don't get me wrong it does look better than without them at all, it's just some of them don't load when the game is installed. Maybe 25-40% of them?
The newspapers laying on the ground in Seine Crossing -- You can read them without the game installed, and can only read the headline when the game is installed.
When neither is installed, you can't make out any of it.
