    Bad Company 2 Optimized Drivers for Nvidia and ATI Cards

    Check out this article at BadCompanyTwo.com website to help you get the most out of your vid cards HERE:


    Nvidia: Team Green has just released their newest BETA drivers (197.25) that add increased speed and optimization for SLI and Multi-GPU Cards for Bad Company 2. I can tell you that even if your not running a SLI or Multi-GPU setup, your probably still going to see around a 5%-10% increase in FPS. These 197.25 drivers were released March 23rd. They also fix the Fan Speed bug that some Nvidia users were getting when setting their computers to “Sleep Mode”. These are not WHQL Certified, but me, and most of my Nvidia friends have been using them issue free for the past couple of days.

    ATI: Team Red has released their newest Catalyst 10.3 Drivers that improve performance across the board on multiple gaming engines. Bad Company 2 is not on the list, but a few Overclocking Forums have users posting 5%-10% gains.

    Administration interface for BFBC2 PC

    Remote Administration interface for BFBC2 PC

    Source: http://blogs.battlefield.ea.com/batt...-bfbc2-pc.aspx


    Hi again!

    A lot of people are asking about server administration. What's up there?

    A little background
    Since the Frostbite engine had not yet been used for any PC titles, there had been no need for advanced server administration tools. BFBC2 PC changed that however.
    There was a sort of "server console" thing, but it was intended for developer use only. Something easier to use and more stable was necessary when we came closer to release it to the PC users.

    So what are we doing?
    We are creating a separate command console, which is stable, and where the commands will not change. This will be the Remote Administration interface for BFBC2 PC. BF2 console commands have been a good source of inspiration
    The Remote Administration interface is accessible over a network port on the game server.

    While we ensure that there is a solid administration interface, we are not creating any fancy tools. Why not? Because the community will do a much better job! RSPs have already been using the interface for weeks, and several people are working on user friendly tools. We will continue to improve the protocol with functions that are necessary to make good tools.

    PC Admin Commands


    help : Shows a basic command listing.

    admin.runScript <filename> : Executes a file in the “AdminScript” directory of the server, such as “Startup.txt” or a file that you have custom-defined.

    punkBuster.pb_sv_command <command> : Executes a raw punkbuster command on the server. You can use this to set up timed messages, etc.

    admin.yell <message> <duration in ms> <players> : Displays a message on players’ screens for the amount of time indicated. The duration is measured in milliseconds and must be >0 and <60000 — for instance, 10000 means 10 seconds. The message must be less than 100 characters long. “players” can be “all”, “team <team number>”, “squad <squad number>” or “player <playername>”.

    admin.runNextLevel : Switches to the next level in the map cycle.

    admin.restartMap : Ends the current round and restarts with the same map.

    admin.listPlayers <players> : Lists all players in the server (<players> is in the same format as it is for admin.yell). For each player, it prints lines for the clantag, player name, squad number, and team number.

    admin.kickPlayer <player name> : Kicks a specified player. You can find the exact player name from admin.listPlayers.

    admin.banPlayer <player name> <timeout> : Ban a player for the specified amount of time. Timeout can be “perm” for permanent, “round” for until the end of the round, or “seconds <seconds>” for some number of seconds.

    admin.banIP <ip address> <timeout> : Like admin.banPlayer, but for an IP address. There is currently no way to find a player’s IP address through the game.

    admin.unbanPlayer <player name> : Unbans a player. Currently this is broken.

    admin.unbanIP <ip address> : Unban an IP.

    admin.clearPlayerBanList : Clear the entire ban list at once.

    admin.clearIPBanList : Clear the entire IP ban list at once.

    admin.listPlayerBans : See all players that are banned. The format is very ugly.

    admin.listIPBans : See all IPs that are banned. The format is very ugly.

    reservedSlots.load : Re-load the reservedslotslist.txt file that is loaded by the game when it starts. You can change the contents of this file through the “Easy setup” page in your control panel.

    reservedSlots.save : Re-save the reservedslotslist.txt file.

    reservedSlots.addPlayer <player name> : Grant a player a reserved slot by adding him to the list.

    reservedSlots.removePlayer <player name> : Remove a player’s reserved slot.

    reservedSlots.clear : Clear all reserved slots at once.

    reservedSlots.list : List the current reserved slots.

    mapList.load, mapList.save, mapList.list, malList.clear, mapList.remove : These behave just as the reservedSlots functions do. Some are broken, currently.

    mapList.append <map name> : Adds a map to the end of the current map list. Currently broken.

    vars.gamePassword, vars.punkBuster, vars.hardCore, vars.ranked, vars.rankLimit, vars.teamBalance, vars.friendlyFire, vars.playerLimit, vars.bannerUrl, vars.serverDescription, vars.killCam, vars.miniMap, vars.crossHair, vars.3dSpotting, vars.miniMapSpotting, vars.thirdPersonVehicleCameras : These do as you might expect, and “true” or “false” is used for most of them. You should set them through your “Easy setup” page instead, so that they are saved across server restarts.

    Thanks to John from NFO Servers for letting me use his guide. http://www.nfoservers.com/forums/vie...hp?f=50&t=4278
