How to lower DirectX in Bad Company 2.

ok for the guys that dont have the mega l337 pc and have lag in game , u can fix it with a small change ;)

How to lower the Dx and the resolution:

* Click start and go to my documents
* Next click BFBC2Beta
* Then open the file called "settings" in notepad
* Where is says DxVersion=auto. Lower that to 8 or 9
* You are more than welcome to put everything else on low as seen here


* Click save and you are done. This made the game run A LOT smoother.

This tutorial was made on Windows 7. If anyone finds there to be a problem with the tutorial feel free to add.

and also try this when the first change didnt helped !

Making the game play in a windowed mode will take up more resources if you were to play in a fullscreen. This is just my assumption, I may be wrong.

Playing the game at 800x600 will make the text very hard to decipher, keep it at the lowest possible res offered in game. Although the lowering the res will offer you a chance to play, it is not worth losing all in-game text for.

hope this help some ppl :)
