    I tried it last night. Even at the preset rez and settings it puts you at I was getting possibly mid 20's so I hate to think what full rez and settings would do to my rig. Other than that it is Battlefield so meh.

    I didn't meet the criteria either even though I upgraded to origin and downloaded it and logged in and have BF2, BF2142, BC2 all registered with it. Wtf. :(

    Capt.Toilet, if you aren't gonna keep playing it is there a way I could use your account? :) :lol:

    Capt. Toilet - yeah I was having issues last night, most of it video. But it's alpha. I've been dying for this game to come out but I have so say, aside from it freezing up on me, I think the end result of the game will be great.

    If your using a LCD Monitor, Its best to run it at native resolution. It will give you performance.

    Why do people keep thinking the retail version will be origin free? Go take a look at the back of the Alice retail copy and you will plainly see "Requires Origin installation".

    Ummm I am running at native. The thing runs in a browser window and instantly throws you into a match. There are no graphical options to speak of.

    Yeah I ran it at native resolution last night ..which is tough because you can stretch out the window and it's just ...so ...tempting. But the game runs much longer for me now at the default setting. It's alpha so I wasn't expecting much from this phase. Regardless this game look very promising. I am really liking the ways the game is designed to encourage covering fire.
