I hear that the new interface is better with keeping you in a group, so you can squad up before joining.

Now, you’re able to create a Squad before you actually enter into a game. Being able to join up with your friends and join into a game together makes it a much smoother experience, and helps make sure you’re able to spawn on your buddies as soon as you’re in the game.


I'm rubbish with time zones so no idea if this means tonight will be interrupted, either way a welcome change.

Its already happening, but with it being described as a 'rollout' they're probably doing it per continent and if they're smart they'll do it for us in the middle of the day when its quiet.

Well, not sure if co-incidence or the windows update but my BF4 thinks it isn't installed.....

Attempting a steam-like re-download over the top of existing trick now.

EDIT : Thankfully, this seems to be working.

Rename BF4 folder.
Start download, let it get to 1%
Pause download, quit origin
replace BF4 folder with original.
restart origin, continue download.

Takes a while to re-check files but flys through once done.

OK will test when I get in, ta!

Joining as a squad sounds great, one of my major gripes about the game!

I had to do this slightly differently, but same sort of thing.

Basically opened Origin- Battlefield had vanished.

> Renamed Battlefield 4 installation folder
> Set Battlefield to Install so new folder was created
> Paused download
> Replaced new folder with old folder
> Resumed download
> Origin 'realised' BF4 was installed but downloaded a couple of GB update
> All addons started to 'install' - So just pause them and restart them and Origin 'realises' they're installed

Worse update process ever, makes ours Mach look streamlined!

Weird, It said it wasn't installed, but I just pressed download and startet at 23-24Gb out of 26. :p Just didn't state it was a update.

Yep, me to. I've fav'd a few more hardcore servers but TBH don't really care if it's normal or not so long as we're on killing folk together.

I've also focused on 32 player, Conquest (not large).

Sorry for the early exit yesterday, quite tired.

Awww, bless.

I'll try and get on... my PC is behaving oddly again this morning so I might have to spend time on that tbh.

Didn't make it last night. Probably not going to be on now until Monday and even then unsure.

Having a few issues with my PC, blue screens etc so gonna give it a re-install which means a lot of re-downloading of games!
