for any of you gamers that buy bf2...

by AKonny47 / June 22, 2005 12:29 PM PDT

when you are installing battlefield 2, and it asks you to type in the code, it says that the code is " look at the white box left lower on the back of your case"

it is NOT located there!
it is on the back of your manual/instruction book at the very top.

i have seen this posted in many forums but not this one Happy

p.s. it took me a while to find it, but i post on another website forum and a whole bunch of people had the same problem.

by AKonny47 / June 24, 2005 3:32 AM PDT

this thing puzzled me i swear lol. i couldnt find it and then there it is on the back of the manual. i had my game reserved since january and boy, its a great game, but you need to meet the requirements, and they are very STEEP!

i recomend 1 gig ram
ati 9600 +
nvidia 5700 +

this is one demanding game for your gpu and ram, not really cpu dependent game

you wont regret buying it Happy

Thanks for pointing that out.

Do you know what the system requirements for the game are? (I know it's off topic.)

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
